HIPPY in ORANGE! (by Ainah Teodosio)

I finally got an excuse to wear this hippy look when we went to Cambodia last month. This is the perfect survival outfit especially if you’re walking for almost 8 hrs under the solid heat of the sun.

WHAT I WORE?

HOME COOKING 101: JUN-JUL ‘13

Since my memory is as bad as a granny, I’ll put all the recipes in this blog for future reference and for those people who are also interested. Most of the food I prepare can be cooked in less than 15 minutes. I just can’t take the heat in the kitchen so I want to finish everything as fast as I can.

(1) GRILLED CHICKEN W/ TOMATO & CORN ENSALADA 

image

Ingredients: 

(1/4) Chicken Fillet

Salt & Pepper 

Tomato

Corn

Olive Oil

Butter

How to: 1) Season your chicken fillet with salt & pepper and leave it for an hour. 2) Drizzle some olive oil in your pan & start to grill the chicken. It will take 3-5 minutes on each side. 3) While grilling, take another small pan and put on your butter. Saute your corn and add salt & pepper. 4) Prepare your tomatoes into small slices. 5) After your chicken is cooked & tender, cut it into long strips. Put on your tomato and corn ensalada and you’re DONE!

(2) BURGER STEAK W/ MUSHROOM SAUCE

image

Ingredients: 

(1/4) Ground Pork/ Giniling

onion

garlic

Salt & Pepper 

Chili Powder (optional)

Olive Oil

Mushroom Sauce (Powder)

How to: 1)  Mix your ground pork with salt & pepper, onions (chopped into small pieces), garlic and chili powder. I added this extra ingredient just to put a little bit of kick & spice to the flavor. Leave it for about 30 minutes just to let the pork absorb all the ingredients. 2) Shape the ground pork into round patties and start to grill it in a pan with hot cooking oil. 3) While cooking the burger patties, prepare your mushroom sauce by putting a little amount of water in the saucer. Heat it up and start to pour the sauce’s powder. Slowly dissolve it and gradually add on some water until it’s thick. 4) After your burgers are cooked, pour on the mushroom sauce and you’re DONE!

(3) PORK CHOPS W/ BUTTERED TALONG

image

Ingredients: 

(1/4) Pork chops

soysauce

Salt & Pepper 

Magic Sarap (optional)

Butter

Talong/ Eggplant

Olive Oil

How to: 1) Marinade your pork chops with soysauce and salt & pepper. It’s better if you will do this overnight so it will be more flavorful. But if you’re as lazy as me, just leave it for about 1-2 hours. 2) Start to grill your pork chops on a hot pan with olive oil. 3) While cooking, prepare your talong buy slicing it into small rectangular pieces. Put your butter on a hot pan and start to cook it side by side. 4) After your meat is juicy & tender, serve it along with your buttered talong and you’re DONE!

(4) BLACK PEPPER CHICKEN W/ MASHED POTATO

image

Ingredients: 

Chicken Wings

Salt & Pepper 

Potatoes

Asparagus

Butter 

Olive Oil

How to: 1) Marinade overnight your chicken wings with salt & pepper. Alternatively, you can buy an instant marinated black pepper chicken in the market. This will make your life easier! 2) Start to grill your chicken on a hot pan w/ cooking oil until it’s roasted on both sides. 3) For the mashed potato, peel of the skin, boil it in a hot water and drizzle some salt. To check if the potatoes are already cooked, poke it using a fork so you can determine if it’s already soft. 4) Once cooked, drain all the water and put on some salt & butter. Start to mash using your potato masher or fork. 5) For the asparagus, just blanch it in a hot water for a few seconds and you’re all DONE!

CHARLIE BROWN Cafe…NEVER again! ᕙ(`皿´)╯

Last weekend, we celebrated our 41 months of being together so we went out on our usual munchary date. Since we’re already in Somerset area, why not  dine at Charlie Brown cafe? I’ve been eager to try out their food because their restaurant looks really cute with the Snoopy & Charlie brown designs all over the place.

This fellow here will greet you at the entrance. ツ

Cute ceiling with all the characters!

Jay ordered grilled chicken because he wants to eat rice and this was the only delightful option he can choose. What can I say? It’s the most tasteless dish ever! =))

image

On the other hand, I ordered my usual lasagna and mocha frappe. The drink was all right but the pasta dish was so dry. Grrr!

image

Jay’s kiwi strawberry smoothie is a thumbs up for me!

image

image

Our usual couple shot. I need to document everything for future reference loL! ♥

image

Since I didn’t enjoy the food, I must at least have a photo taken with Charlie Brown. We or more like Jay (‘coz he treated me) wasted SGD 50+ for the not so good dining experience. Oh well! シ

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Eat and Go!

Last June, we went to KL to support our partners for the Standard Chartered Marathon. Unfortunately, the event was cancelled due to the wicked haze from Indonesia. But since we already booked the flight and arranged our hotel, we just gave it a go.

 It’s actually my second time to travel in this place. The first time I went with my partner and his cousins it’s just a one day trip. Anyway, we booked via Air Asia direct to KL. Upon arrival, we hired a cab and paid RM 100 to send us to Prescott Hotel where we booked for an overnight stay. It’s a decent hotel with a spacious room for the four of us. However, I don’t find the employees friendly and accommodating. Their WIFI also sucks!

DAY 1: PETRONAS TWIN TOWERS

The weather was too hot during that day so it was very exhausting and we’re sweating like crazy. Our hungry stomachs are already rumbling as well since we only had a light breakfast at the airport. We decided to eat our lunch on this nearby Malay resto so we can try their famous Ayam Bakar which is like a grilled chicken on layman’s term. I’ll give it 3 stars since I liked how the dish tasted like Aristocrat, one of my favorite restos in the Philippines! =)

image

After lunch, we slept in our hotel (just like a pig) for a few hours and woke up by 4 PM so we can carry on with our itinerary. 

If you’re going to Kuala Lumpur, one place you shouldn’t miss to see is the  Petronas Twin Towers (KLCC). I’m pretty sure everyone already knows how famous this building is.

This is how Petronas looks like at night. Isn’t it beautiful? :)

  image

Of course there should always be a couple shot! ❤  (grainy photo taken from my iPhone)

After taking as much photos as we can, we went straight to Petaling Street or their so called “China Town” to eat our dinner. It was very crowded with all those kiosks selling fake branded items like Prada, Chanel, Rolex, etc..! 

image

Finally, dinner time! This is one of the best sweet & sour pork I ever tasted! Thumbs up!

image

Chicken with cashew nuts! 

image

Garlic Prawn

image

From Petaling Street, we took a cab and paid RM 40 to go to Bukit Bintang to look for a cheap massage. It was a busy place with all the lights and sexy women offering spa & + + services (if you know what I mean).

Random guitar player.

After almost an hour of strolling around, we finally came across this Spa called Liang Xin. We paid RM 55 if I’m not mistaken for a 45 minutes full body massage. It was a nice place considering it was more economical compared to other cheap looking spas around the area. They served us free fruits and ice cream as well! Anything free is a super thumbs up for me! ツ

Here’s my bf enjoying his fruit juice after his relaxing massage. What a face!

image

Like a boss! I want to have this kind of couch in our future house!

DAY 2: BATU CAVES 

From our hotel, we rode the MRT going to the Batu Caves. The station looked old so I thought that the train itself would be the same. But far from what I expected, it was the complete opposite. The transit train has very nice and modern interiors. I was too judgemental loL!

This big human monkey statue over here will welcome you in the entrance. 

image

image

It was too hot again during that day so I have to buy some refreshments! I’m a Coconut Girl! =)

image

If you’re afraid of monkeys, then don’t go here. These bratty creatures are everywhere!

image

If you’re unfamiliar, Batu Caves is a holy shrine dedicated for Lord Murugan of the Hindus.

image

You need to climb up this stairs in order to enter the caves. I don’t know where we got our energy during that hot sunny day but yeah we managed to reach the top.

image

Here’s how the cave looks like inside. 

image

We actually spent more time climbing up than staying inside to explore the caves. It was too exhausting so we just went down to take some more pictures.

Out of all the photos I took, this one has got to be my favorite. It’s a black & white shot of pigeons hanging out at the top of the roof.

image

Look how big there central train station is!

image

Here’s another random photo that I took with all the cool wall arts!

image

By this time, we’re already hungry as hell so we went to a mall near Cyberjaya to have our late lunch and came across Mr. Teppanyaki.

image

 I ate chicken teriyaki which is my usual order of Japanese food! Delicioso! 

image

Our last stop is Cyberjaya mall where we usually have our coffee and Krispy Kreme. This had already became a tradition! 

I’m just glad that Malaysia is only a few tumbling away from Singapore. At least we can have a place to visit every time we get bored with the Lion City! =)
