Going Fishing Today

The kids are getting ready now to go to the farm to fish. Its not really a pond but we want the kids to experience how to catch a fish. We made a make-shift fish catcher hoping to catch some. If we cant catch, then will just buy some nice fish for grilling for our dinner tonight. I heard that Grills Direct has an ongoing weber grill sale onsite.

Anyway, time for me to end this post as we need to catch some earthworms first.

Tikoy For Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year foodies! On Monday, the Philippine government declared as a non working holiday for the first time thus the celebration of the Chinese Year in Manila was extra ordinary. Not that I was there but it was evident in the news channel. We are Chinese but we always eat Tikoy during Chinese New Year.

Tikoy or Nián gāo is a type of rice cake made from glutinous rice flour and considered as a must served during Chinese Year. Its normally fried deep in egg. Its sweet, so sticky and yes yummy! It was my plan earlier that I should prepare something like what the Chinese do, but didn't have the time to do it. We recently just moved to Dumaguete and have plenty of things to arrange and do.

I heard that the people born on Year of the Dragon will not succeed this year, first, they'll lose their job! Oh well, I just lost mine! It's a bad news but I am hoping and praying that things will get better. Hope one day when all are in places, I could buy myself a diamond eternity band. I think I deserved this!

Anyway, lets all eat tikoy now! This is actually my afternoon snacks!

Less Pork, More Fish

Lechon lechon lechon, yes thats probably the number one food served during Christmas season. And yes, for me, I had enough lechon last December thus for my new resolution this year, I will not eat lechon forever! Nah, just kidding! Oh well, lets be conservative and say - 1 month. And next month, will update again. Hopefully, this resolution will stretch to 2 months or even 1 year. Do you believe in that? I doubt it! lol

Anyway, for January 2012, less pork more fish! You see, I am really craving for fish and other seafoods after the recent flashfloods in Mindanao. Of course, everyone is afraid to eat fish. So while we were in Mindanao - Cagayan de Oro and Bukidnon specifically - we feasted on pork and chicken all the time!
