Palitaw 1 - Remembering Buwan ng Wika with this quick Palitaw recipe [VIDEO]

It’s a real shame when things don’t go as planned. I had this whole thing set in my head. I wanted to fill my blog this month of August with all things Filipino-related, just because it was the Buwan ng Wika– the Filipino language month. Apart from this Palitaw recipe, I had a list of …

Vietnamese Spring Rolls 1 - Fresh Vietnamese Spring Rolls Recipe, as seen through the Huawei P9

As someone who enjoys cooking, one of my greatest dreams has always been to have a home garden. I always imagine myself stepping out through the kitchen door and into a backyard to pick some tomatoes, maybe some fat juicy bell peppers. It would be nice to be able to just pluck a piece of …

Nestle Creamy Chicken Adobo 1 - Creamy Chicken Adobo recipe at home with Nestle All Purpose Cream

The Nestle All Purpose Cream #CreateWithCream event I attended last July 9 has done nothing but inspire me to cook up a storm.

My favourite Sesame Soba topped with sweet-spicy salmon

Let’s cook Kimchi Fried Rice with the help of Petron Gasul!

As a home cook and baker, one of my major concerns has always been safety in the kitchen especially when it comes to my stove and oven. You know how sometimes you’re switching your oven off like it’s second nature without really thinking about it, and then you leave the house, are in your car …

A quick Bibimbap recipe to curb sudden cravings

I am a huge fan of Korean dramas. I think at the moment, South Korea produces the best dramas in Asia, and somehow, despite the fact that some of the core themes and elements get recycled from drama to drama, the actors can covey them differently and the writers find a way to put a …
