2015 Project 365, Day 187: Pork Adobo

Photo #187: July 6

Here’s another first for me and Leo: pork adobo with egg! Yum!!!! Actually, we felt like it lacks soy sauce, but we still enjoyed this dish as we added a little salt & had Chef Paul’s Gourmet Chili Sauce on the side (I mixed some into my rice). Moreover, we simmered the pork longer than necessary, so it’s really soft!!! Leo wants to try cooking caldereta next…hmmm we’ll see. ^^

2015 Project 365, Day 186: Donate a Mug at Ca Phe Saigon

Photo #186: July 5

This cute mug display can be found at Ca Phe Saigon, a feel-good dining place that serves authentic Vietnamese food. Since I received my first Rare Job mug, I started preferring mugs to cups or glasses regardless of what I’m drinking. I would love to hang one of my mugs here, so I could get a hug from Tita Rose, the accommodating Vietnamese co-owner of the cafe. She’s responsible for the legit dishes they offer, including pho! ^^ Will blog about them soon!! <3



2015 Project 365, Day 185: Crazy Chicken’s Overload Burger & Fiesta Taco Salad

Crazy Chicken is definitely one of my favorite dining places along Lilac Street in Marikina because aside from flavorful chicken drumsticks and wings, they also have other offerings including a generous helping of taco salad and this huge burger aptly called “Overload.” I always order the fiesta taco salad, which is made up of Mexican seasoned ground beef, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, cheese sauce, and nacho chips. It was my first time to try their burger (you can choose from 6 variants), and I wasn’t disappointed! The Overload has a 1/3 pound patty, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, and of course, bacon! ^^ Their burgers are served with fries. I also love their hot sauce!!! ^^



2015 Project 365, Day 184: Quaker Oat Dairy Drink

Yummy oat dairy drinks from Quaker!!! The banana crΓ¨me variant tastes like Quaker’s banana-flavored oats. On the other hand, the vanilla malt flavor tastes like a “waferized” drink, plus it has a thicker consistency, making it “oat-ier” than the former. Both are good, but I prefer the latter more. ^^



2015 Project 365, Day 183: Chef Paul’s Gourmet Chili Sauce

I have found the answer when it comes to the meager amount of chili oil that Chowking provides (sometimes, they even have a shortage!): Chef Paul’s Gourmet Chili Sauce. Grabe, it’s so good that aside from putting some in my dipping sauce (a combinationΒ of soy sauce and vinegar), I also mixed a teaspoonful into newly-cooked rice! Instant spicy garlic rice! It’s the best homemade chili oil I’ve ever tasted by far! Message their page or Chesca to order! ^^

2015 Project 365, Day 182: Terminator Genisys

Photo #182: July 1

I’ve always enjoyed watching the Terminator series, and the latest installment, “Terminator Genisys,” did not disappoint! It was action packed (as expected), but for me it is also the funniest among all 5 films so far! Even if Arnold Schwarzenegger’s getting old, he still has good comic timing! “Come with me if you want to live!” is one of the most popular lines from the series, but after watching Genisys, I’m sure you’ll remember a different line!!! Hahaha! And okay fine, I like Emilia Clarke much better here than in Game of Thrones! ^^
