Family Affair at Casa De Figueroa

I would say that my family is extremely introvert. We do not attend any gatherings, we don’t befriend our neighbors.

Now that my siblings and I are grown up we were exposed and became amiable.

My grandma went home from Virginia so she gathered her relatives, her niece (my mom) for this intimate affair. Her family own a resort in Guiguinto, Bulacan.

The place is newly renovated with new bathrooms, swimming pool, and flooring. My grandparents said that this place is open for rental. So if you are looking for a spacious and private area this is great for you.

They accept birthdays, weddings, debuts, and other functions.

Since my aunt is a chef, she catered us with sumptuous meals.


I am happy that I get to know my extended family.

Some snapshots from #PCTACONVENTION2015

I’ve been organizing this event for quite sometime and every year is a brand new experience. This year’s edition is the most challenging for me as I was undergoing transition while juggling other tasks in between. 

I know there were mishaps in between days but it was all worth it. I am excited to get the photos from my official photographer.


It’s my first time to deploy two-way radio and I was black widow. In all fairness this is so useful for the event.


Also, it is my first time to wear shorts for ingress. LOL


First day is always packing of kits, any conference organizers know this.


Haven’t ate properly and my sweet bf never fails to amaze me by sending me a burger.


 Second day – I missed the new highlight of our show so my staff brought me some Jap goodness.


 Opening – I would not say that this is an epic fail but it was entertaining.


 And then at night my friends from Solar asked me to sing and they awarded me the as the star of the night. I sung “Stay” by Lisa Loeb. 


 And for Fellowship Night, my legs got all tired at the backstage. 

The show was worth it.

I was lucky to have a reliable EA. 


And though I am not a fan of celebrities, Jason Dy got my attention. 


And for my last night, I screamed at the top of my lungs to release all the stress I had from the crazy week. 

Amazing experience!  

Mais con Yelo, the UCC way

I found this in my gallery and since summer is here might as well share with you this easy famous cold treat. 

The usual mais con yelo being sold in the streets is just plain ice and corn. But in UCC Vienna Café it’s different. 

They serve it with Nata de Coco, Corn Flakes, Milk, Cheese Ice Cream, and whipped cream on top.

I suggest if you are feeling hot go to UCC and chillax. 

I have to check the price though? It’s around Php165.

Happy Summer!

Choco Sunday | Crinkles and Choco Mug Cake

I have this urge of babbling because of the WordPress iOS new interface. It’s so easy to create a post for all my WordPress sites.

Well today I didn’t do anything special. I am just with my phone browsing funny videos in Buzzfeed, watching ny new fave shows in AFC — Man Fire Food, Kitchen Heroes, and Real Girl’s Kitchen. And then made some choco goodies, as usual. 

What’s new here is the mug cake, I saw this on One Pot Chef and I tried it. 

All you need is a mug, flour, sugar, milk, butter, egg, and cocoa powder. Put in your microwave for 1.5 minutes, and you are good to go. 

Grilled Chicken Teriyaki

If there is one chicken dish that I really like, it’s the grilled chicken teriyaki. Last weekend, I went home, as usual, you know the drill, I am the cook. I was enthusiastic to start the grill and yes, inhale the charred smoke. 

Try this at home!


  • Chicken Thighs 
  • Ginger
  • Soy Sauce
  • Brown Sugar
  • Garlic
  • Spring Onions
  • Sesame Seeds

How to cook

  1. Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients for at 30 mins to 1 hour.
  2. Grill them until well done and set aside
  3. Make the Teriyaki glaze using soy sauce, water, cornstarch, toasted sesame seeds, minced garlic, ginger
  4. Once you are happy with the taste, return the chicken and let it simmer until the sauce has reduced
  5. Top it off with spring onions

It took me one hour to cook everything. I paired this with sautéed bean sprouts as side dish.

I love cooking.
