Hikay: Lutong Pinoy

I’ve been meaning to write about this restaurant after the first time that we ate there but it seems the universe is conspiring against it. Every time I would try to write about it the lazy bone would kick in or my artistic juices would just run dry(if I have some of it) and so to prove to myself that I can write if I really want to, here I am again, trying my very best to complete this draft after around two months after it sat in the drafts section.  (more…)

Creamy Bacon Carbonara Pasta Recipe

I’ll be posting some cooking stuffs around here since I am an avid fan of the kitchen. Yep, I truly do love experimenting and trying to make some delicious food out of the things that can be found locally. I am not a chef or some sort of cooking guru with culinary certificate; rather, what I have is some sort of an immense experience in the kitchen. Fueled by my curiosity on how to do cooking, I started out helping my mom at the kitchen, my cousins with some sort of “accident” and finally, I was allowed to do it on my own.

To be able to keep track of what I already tried and maybe remember the recipe, I’ll be updating this blog with recipes. Here’s one of my all time favorite– Creamy Bacon Carbonara Pasta.

I really haven’t tried baking because I grew up without an oven or any machinery for baking. What I tried are just pancake making and some sort of local delicacies that my grandmother and mother used to make. Aside from the machinery, I’m also a bit of hesitant to create something that might be a total disaster. It’s food and it should never be wasted. 😉

Some things really do changed because of YouTube and the internet, my housemate discovered Todd’s kitchen and we browsed through his tutorial and learned how to make the No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake! (more…)

Virgin Island Series: Exploring Higatangan Island Leyte

Day 1 of this adventure is posted here and Day 2 is here too.

Higatangan Island

Higatangan Island

This is the second part of Day 2, as we travel towards another virgin island here in Visayas. The next island is Higatangan Island. Geographically speaking, the island is not part of Cebu but of Leyte. Unlike Carnaza where it’s some kind of shot in the dark adventure since we really don’t have any concrete place to stay, in Higatangan we had a contact and a resort to stay in. (more…)

Virgin Island Series Part II: Exploring Carnaza Island Cebu

Good morning Carnaza by Jane

Good morning Carnaza by Jane

After the Day 1 adventure of getting to Carnaza island which I posted here, we woke up just as the sun is rising for Day 2.

It’s amazing how late we did hit the sack the previous night and still managed to wake up around 6 AM. We certainly can’t do this at the city– I really don’t know why. But the sound of boats, the crispness of the salt water in the wind and that certain calmness by the beach is a great way to start our day. So, here’s what we did on our Day 2 adventure.

MORNING WALK

After drinking our coffee, we decided to walk along the shoreline and explore the island some more. According to the owner of the house we can buy fresh catch from the fishermen at around 8AM. We decided to wait for them to arrive and just explore the island while doing so. (more…)
