Grilled Fish with Radish Salad

Every family member in the house have its own specialty recipe. If my mama cooks very well with her own recipes, my papa has specialties on his list too. One of those is turning this simple fish into a delightful meal happily shared by us.

Presenting, Grilled Fish with Radish Salad... 

Healthy and Yummy Radish Salad....
We can't get enough of this. We are not fish-lovers but with how Papa made this recipe, even Macky was asking for more.



One Afternoon at Jollibee

Jollibee Palabok

After a few days of not eating decently when my father was hospitalized, I have decided to treat myself for an afternoon merienda (actually late lunch)  at Jollibee near SPMC. I went to that hospital everyday to ask  free medicines for my father and my sister thought that I deserve some treat. It is  because of that effort, we were able to save a lot from my father's medicine expense.

My afternoon was really complete, my tiredness gone and my soul happy  after eating palabok and french fries from Jollibee. It may sound crazy but it's true. :-)


Salisbury Steak from Red Ribbon

Rice, Mashed Potatao, Mixed Carrots and Sweet Corn = Perfect Meal

I had the chance to enjoy this hearty meal from Red Ribbon due to my friend's insistence when we shared lunch a few weeks ago. It was actually a late afternoon lunch since we both need to finish some errands prior to our meet up.  It was just a quick lunch date at Red Ribbon - Sales (Chimes) because this good friend of mine needs to hurry back to work.

Although short with time,  the lunch date was very heartwarming and  satisfying especially with Salisbury Steak served on our table. You can order this meal with a slice of Cookies and Cream with Oreo Cake and a glass of soda or you can do away with both and just simply enjoy this perfect meal.



Fresh Buko

During our tripping in Samal Island few Saturdays ago, we were given a chance to see some of the interesting sites in the Island for free. We also had the chance to enjoy the free lunch prepared by the sponsor but before that, we were given this fresh buko juice as another welcome drink in Talicud Island where we had our lunch.

Fresh Buko ...

We were very delighted because the fresh buko given to us is just perfect for the weather and also as a  thirst quencher. Aside from sipping our  fresh buko juice, we were also served with buko salad which I failed to capture on cam due to my excitement to eat. LOL.


Lunch Date at Greenwich

Just like with most of my food escapades, my dear friend Exper is always by my side in  my most gluttonous time.Lol! When I am tired and stressed out, one of the first best thing I can think of is EAT! So one afternoon, Exper and I decided to eat lunch together at Greenwich - Ilustre.

After the hearty meal, we can hardly think of any thing that stresses us out because we are focused on our bulging tummies.Hehehe... What a happy way to remove stress especially when shared with one of your best buddies.



Cheers to Hubby's 40th Birthday!

They said that life begins at 40... I may not fully understand the full meaning of it but I believe that  it is a "milestone" in everyone's life. So to celebrate Bren's milestone, we (myself, Tommy and my family) prepared a simple  dinner for Bren last Tuesday.

Bren  slicing his cake and his dear friend Tommy on the other side....
Sliced Patotin, Fruit Salad, Grilled Pork Ribs and Texapino Chicken Steak ala Tommy
Whole Patotin, Spaghetti, Grilled Tuna Panga and Vegetable Salad

The meal was shared with a few neighbors and some close  friends since we have already served lunch at Bren's office early on. My husband is already forty years old although he is in denial about it. When asked about his age, he would always answer 39. Lol...

It's okay chu, it is all part of life. I will always love you the same even if you are 39,40,50.... actually until forever. Cheers! Happy 40th birthday Tachu! May the Lord God bless you always.

I would like to thank Tommy for exerting an effort to prepare the Mashed Potato,  Fruit Salad and Texapino Chicken Steak with special sauce and also for the grilled pork ribs served on Bren's big day. Thanks Tommy and Ate Claire. Thank you for making Bren's birthday extra special.



CDO Vacation: My First Dinner Invitation

Days before our  Yellow Cab lunch treat, we were invited by my good friend Lucille to have a dinner at their house.  We were like inseparable because for the whole time that we were in Cagayan de Oro, Lucille is the one keeping me company  and treating me like a visitor all the time. 

An invitation for me is as good as inviting the whole household so together with my sister, brother in-law, Yoshi, Bella , Tita Jing and my sister's house help Sheila, we went to Lucille and Marlon's place to join them for dinner the first Saturday that we were there.

Lucille's very own fried dumplings...
deliciously made pancit...
Grilled Bangus perfect with soy sauce and kalamansi...
Cake for dessert...

Aside from the delightful dinner that they prepared for us, the very important thing about that night is that we get to bond and catch up with each other. After all the eating, Lucille still served us with her famous Tapioca ( it's a dessert made up of milk,cream, fresh fruits and gulaman... only popular in Cagayan de Oro). The bonding as always didn't just stop after the dinner because Marlon and Lucille even  volunteered  to  take us home using  their family car. See how pampered we are? LOL!

Thank you very much Bing, Marlon, Ate Mika and Ate Nonon for all your time and for sharing all your blessings to us. It is such a wonderful experience spending time with your family. A million thanks.Cheers!



CDO Vacation: Lunch At Yellow Cab Pizza

We were invited by Tita Cindy ( my sister's SIL)  to a lunch one afternoon at Yellow Cab Pizza, SM City Branch during our Cagayan de Oro sojourn. Since SM City is just  a 5-minute jeepney ride from my sister's place so off we go! 

And this is what Tita Cindy have for us that day....

Four Seasons Pizza... mixture of NY Classic, #4 Cheese, Anchovy Lovers, Roasted Garlic & Shrimp
Fleet Starters...hot chicken  wings,  baked potato wedges and  crunchy tortilla chips
dips! tomato salsa and mayo...

Soda in Can...

And for dessert...chocolate ice cream!

With all of these on the table, I think there is no need for me to say how we felt after that scrumptious lunch at Yellow Cab. Super thank you Tita Cindy. Bella really enjoyed her share.



Ludy's Siomai In Cagayan De Oro

If you have read about my Xavier Days post  in my other blog, this is  the siomai that I've been telling you about. I consider every opportunity to eat Siomai from Ludy's as one my luckiest and happiest moments during our Cagayan de Oro vacation. Yeah, unbelievably true!

Ludy's Siomai has this distinct taste that could not be found in any other siomai. I am a certified Siomaholic or Siomai Addict,  whatever you call a person who couldn't resist eating any kind of siomai anytime, anywhere. I just love siomai... what can I do? Siomai from Ludy's  is truly delicious and extraordinary. I can still remember how it tasted and who would ever forget Ludy's Siomai especially when you have already tasted one? 

And right at this very moment, I am drooling  and craving like a pregnant woman by  simply looking at these photos...

A bunch of Siomai from the Ludy's... Happy Me!
One set (3 pieces) costs only P20.00... Isn't affordable?
Siomai Cart at Xavier University Campus
The siomai from Ludy's are made even delightful with their very own special hot sauce. When you think of trying Ludy's Siomai , please be ready to forget your diet because you'll surely wouldn't get enough. You will definitely bring home some more even if you are already full. I'm serious!

You can find Ludy's Siomai at their main branch at Pabayo Street near Divisoria. They also have carts at Xavier Grade School, Xavier University Campus and Capitol University. They are accepting bulk orders and mind you, they also have the best Tapioca in town. You may call +639328665077.
