Cooking Monster

I hated cooking when I was young. I hated everything that has something to do with kitchens and food preparations. I remember when I was 15 years old, my dad asked me to put a pinch of salt on the halaan (a type of edible clam). I refused to do it but he raised his voice on me so off I went to our kitchen… furiously. So what I did, instead of putting just a small amount of salt, I took 5 tablespoons of it on the halaans. My dad noticed it of course and he scolded me, and after that he never asked me to help him with cooking anymore (IKR! I was spoiled!).
However as time goes by, I learned that sometimes we just have to rely on ourselves. The people who are close to us might leave us or in other case we might leave them for some reason, so it is absolutely necessary to learn the ways of life (and cooking!)

Ja ja , enough of the dramas, now I would like to show you some of foods I’ve made lately. ๐Ÿ™‚

Chicken Inasal (grilled or barbecued) -Filipino food

 
Spicy Beef Ramen-Japanese food

Chicken Adobo-Filipino food
It’s not hard to cook these food, but the preparation is time consuming because of the number of spices to chop and prepare. Don’t worry! The waiting part is worth it because the outcome’s very good.  

No pain, no gain!

My inspirations:

 No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.

What’s Up With Me?

I’m finally done with my philosophy home exam! Woohooo! I’m so happy that I just have to work so much my body can handle before christmas and new year. ๐Ÿ™‚ When the next semester comes I won’t be able to work full time because of my school sched. Of course I’m prioritizing school above anything else but it is also wise to have some job experience now so I can develop my communication skills andย  gain more confidence.
The birthday party
I’ve been to a marvelous party yesterday and it was a blast! There were lots of good tasting foods and drinks. My friends’ mom made four Filipino dishes and I’ve tasted all of it! ๐Ÿ™‚ I was almost bloated when I finished my plate. Grabe!!! That’s why I feel so grateful everytime that they are inviting me to their parties and it makes me proud to be a Filipina too.
My friend Cha set up the table. It looks cosy and warm.
This is me sucking up the lime juice right after the tequila shot.
Partners in crime. Shot glass, salt and the lime.
I only had two tequila shots because my stomache got bad and it almost made me puke. I think it’s because of the Mango-vodka shake my friend made for us. I learned my lesson, never drink a coctail drink with milk on it. Whew!

More limes!

Theo is not excluded from the party. ๐Ÿ™‚
