Breaking Dawn Part 2 Movie Date with cousins

Me together with my cousin Geraldyn and Jomar watched the the special screening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 last saturday at SM City Dasmariñas Cinema 4. Proceeds of the said event will go to The LITTLE ANGELS HOME, INC. (LAHI), a licensed and DSWD-accredited institution serving abandoned, neglected, orphaned and surrendered children ages 0-12 years, under the care of the Risen Christ Monastic Community and the Handmaids of the Risen Christ. We enjoyed the Breaking Dawn movie at the same time, we knew it's not just the waste of money but used in the good cause.

The special screening also has a souvenir photo by Picturistique Photobooth, a free popcorn and drinks from Kettle Korn with some freebies came from event's sponsors. My cousin Jomar had a free scoop of Fiorgelato ice cream while me had a fan and Geraldyn, a notepad. After we watched the movie, we dine out at Tokyo Tokyo, we had a chicken terriyaki, shrimp tempura and red ice tea.

The movie Breaking Dawn Part 2 it's bigger, better and bloodier than it's predesessors. I remember when Jacob not just take his short off but strip down all the way to his underwear, the audience mostly girls ofcourse had a deafening shierks :-) There's a cool twist too that i really love actually, I can't help but clap my hands when i saw the super cool twist! Quiet impressive i may say to the final showdown between the Cullens and the wolves pack vs. The Volturi. It's an epic finale indeed.

Kiddies Simple Halloween Party

Last thursday, the kids on our neighborhood especially my nephew asked me if i can organize a simple halloween party for them, and who am i to say no to those adorable kids right? So armed with little games I know and some money as games prizes, we headed to my mom's house as party venue. The kids shown up at the party fully made up as zombies, dead man even dracula and devil and some with cutie costumes. Even if it's just a simple party, the kids enjoyed it. Till next Halloween Party kids! :-)

Cheating or Not Cheating?

One of my sister at N@Wies, a group at Facebook posted this qs: From my Heart of the Matter thread: Do you think your husband will ever cheat? Are you paranoid? Or super confident kayo?

I can't help but post some kwento as it hits home because barely 1 month ago, my man admitted to me that once upon a time in December 2010, together with his friends, they went to a bar and table a GRO . He said that his friends insist that he should have one for himself and its free, his friend's treat, and to my dismay, he accepted it daw (Grrr!).

He didn't know that it reached me and my family's attention last 2011 pa, my family has a different story to tell, ang nakarating sa kanilang maling balita is Jonathan has a kept woman. When he confessed that to me i told him i know that already and talk to him seriously about the said rumors and he said that cross his heart and hope to die, that was the first time he went on a club and nothing happened, he just talk to that girl, drink some beers then go home with his friends  and he told me in all honesty that nothing's happened and asked for forgiveness, for not telling me right away.

And I forgive and believe him right away (but with so much crying on the side because of slight jealousy) despite my family's different views and opinions.

Maybe my co-n@wies is right in saying that "I/we cannot tell you that's cheating... nor can we tell you it's not because it's how you define trust, cheating, loyalty, etc that will matter... not ours. And by definition, it's not just in the head... but what's in your heart. What can you forgive, understand, live with, etc"

And besides, that situation is a lot  easier compared to the trials we've been through for the past 7 long years of being together....

The Secret Reveal

Although mom was already in Japan as i wrote it, i still wanted to write about this whole secret thingy :-)
it was so cool and funny! 

Mom planned her summer vacation since december of last year. She said she needs my cooperation to never tell anybody especially my brother and my grand mudra. She wanted to surprise them all. So i was game with that, but lo and behold, came last few weeks of March, my brother already knew it because his wife's tita who happened to be my mom's kumare came home from japan and told them about mom's arrival on April 1 but i was still mum about it and i never mentioned anything.

April 1 - Mom arrived around 10:00pm after she place her luggages in her room, she went straight to my Lola's house and knocked, my lola being 'safety first fanatic' opened only her window and mom greeted the still sleepy folk and said in the window "Hello Nay!" and my Lola's reaction was "what? who's there? what? Oh! (with wide eyes) why you're here? is something wrong?" hahahahaha! so funny even my nephew said "Hello Nay!" the same tone my mom used.

Also, last April 6 Kuya We, mom's cousin who works in Bahrain as Architect and his wife Ate Eva also working in Japan took their vacation and stayed in our house. It is one great summer indeed.

a very simple V-Day with Mahal Ko

He wanted to celebrate V-Day and Chinese New Year last Feb 14 but i don't want to go out that day but i asked him if he wanted to go out, why not the usual movie date na lang but this time, with come-back movie nila Popoy and Basha :-) He said okay but he also points out na Miss You Like Crazy's showing date is a bit later pa ng Feb but i said, i don't wanna have double celebrations pa kasi it means double gastos din :-)

Oh, by the way, i said no need to buy me anything kasi that movie date is OK na for me, happy na ako na he agreed, but he still bought me flowers and a Mr. Donuts with freebies like heart-shape baloons and stuff toy (talks about cheapskate!) hahaha! but he also bought some foods we can share sa house as a "dinner date". But nevertheless, i trully appreciate the effort, brings more kilig pa nga.

Delightful Carbonara topped with slice ham and bacon bits ~Recipes #2~

Carbonara (usually spaghetti, but also fettuccine, rigatoni or bucatini) is an Italian pasta dish based on eggs, pecorino romano, guanciale, and black pepper. The dish was created in the middle of the 20th century.


I love pasta! and i love its different sauces too! from Alfredo, to Meatballs, to Pesto, and the seafoods :-) I first tasted Carbonara during High School days at Sbarro Festival Mall in Alabang. Its not my fave pasta dish but since its the easiest to prepare, i give it a try. However, my Carbonara doesn't have eggs.  It was a combination of different recipes i learned from the net.


500 grams.     Spaghetti or Fettuccine Pasta
                          (with this recipe i used the latter)
                          I'm using San Remo for my pasta dishes
200 grams      bacon
200 grams      cooked ham
½ cup              butter
1 tsp                 dried basil leaves
½ tsp               dried rosemary
1 pc                   chicken bouillon cube
1 small can      of slice mushrooms
2 cups              of heavy cream (you can use Nestle all-purpose cream)
1 cup                cream of mushroom (the best is Campbell )
1 cup                water
½ cup              quickmelt cheese, grated
                         Parmesan cheese
                         Salt and Pepper to taste

Cooking Procedures

Cook the spaghetti or fettuccine according to package directions. Drain and you can rinse in cold or running water. Transfer to a serving bowl

Step 1: Cook bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat without oil. When the bacon starts to render oil, turn up the heat to high and continue cooking until the edges start to brown (you can cook until crisp). Pour off the bacon fat. When the bacon is cooled, scrumble it into bits of pieces

Step 2: In the same pan, cook the ham for about 1 minute on both sides at medium fire. Set aside. When already cooled, slice it accodring to your preperence.

Step 3: In the same pan, put the butter until melted and add the mushrooms, ham, basil, rosemary. Add the water from the mushroom and bouillon cubes. Add the cream and let it simmer while stirring occasionally. Add the cream of mushroom, water, cheese, and bacon. Add more water until you achieve the desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste and stir a lil bit more.

Step 4: Toss with the pasta and sprinkle with lots of Parmesan cheese.

                makes 6 servings

COOKING TIPS!  Please note that before you add some pepper and salt, make sure you already tasted your sauce because the bacon and ham already has a salty flavor.

 You can serve it plain just like this


Or with lots of Parmesan Cheese!

Buon appetito!

Tonkatsu ala KC ~Recipes #1~

Tonkatsu is a very popular Japanese food. According to Wikipedia, it was invented in the late 19th century. It consists of a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet one to two centimeters thick and sliced into bite-sized pieces, generally served with shredded cabbage and/or miso soup. Either a pork fillet (ヒレ, hire) or pork loin (ロース, rōsu) cut may be used; the meat is usually salted, peppered, dredged lightly in flour, dipped into beaten egg and then coated with panko (breadcrumbs) before being deep fried.

My mom is living and working in the land of the rising sun for almost 24 years already. Every time she comes home, there's always a pasalubong that includes Japanese foods that's why one of my fave dishes is Japanese and Tonkatsu is my 2nd Japanese fave food (Tempura being #1 :-D)

This recipe was posted on my former blog that i deleted already but you can still read the original post to my multiply account.

Here's my very own version of TONKATSU. Itadakimas!


1 or 1/2 kilo boneless pork chop
salt and pepper to taste
2 pcs. slighty beaten eggs
Japanese breadcrumbs
Tonkatsu sauce

Step 1: Wash the porkchops first, then dry it well using paper towel, sprinkle some salt and paper

Step 2: And then, coat it with a flour or cornstarch, then dip it on a beaten eggs and then on a japanese          breadcrumbs

Step 3: Fry until golden brown. serve while still hot with tonkatsu sauce on the side
             makes 2-4 servings

"Kath" is ~ In The Kitchen ~

If you're one of my FB Friends, you're familiar with my photo album named Entrepreneur by Profession ~ Cook and Baker by PASSION :D i created about a week ago. Pictures of the foods i cooked and some of my favorite foodies :-)

I learned how to cook because of my Grand Mother. She told me she was a cook of a Spanish family before. from Special Caldereta, to basic Sinigang to Kare-Kare and a lot more, name it and she knows how to cook it. Every time she was cooking, I will crab a pen and paper and did a lil interview thing and was able to write down the step-by-step procedures of how to cook that certain dish.

I'm NOT claiming that my recipes are the best among the rest, but at least, in one way or another, i was able to share it with you those foods that i love and if ever there will be a chance that you, the one reading it right now, follow my recipes and found out it was good enough, a little "Thank You" will make this "little chef" smile and happy :-)

And now, I guess its time to finally show my passion for cooking and baking by sharing with you those recipes i learned from my Lola, from my Alma Matter, those i learned from my mom also, and by watching my favorite cooking shows with of course, the recipes hunting on the net ;-P

Let the Magic of Cooking Begins!
Tayo'y Magsikain!
Enjoy your meal!
Bon Appétit!
Mani deuseyo! 
¡Buen provecho!
بالهناء والشفاء / بالهنا والشفا 
Приятного аппетита!

Blog Marathon #4 " The Lost Puppy "

Jonathan (my fiancé) and I love puppies! I remember he gave me a puppies as a friendship gift when we're still BBF :-) i even called them "Bochog" and "Bochay" but sadly, they died after a few months :'(

Anyway, we wanted to have a dog in the house but we're still waiting for JingJing's puppies to grow up. (JingJing is his mother's one and only dog) But last January 28, we found a puppy!

We're on a store chatting with some of our friends when suddenly a brown puppy just came in and we notice that he is so hungry so we gave him something to eat. There's a lot of people walking on the streets after attending the "barangay sortie" of a certain political group (will blog about it later) so at first we really wanted to ask around who the owner was because maybe isa sa mga nanood yung may-ari and naiwanan lang or something.

But one of our friend said he can take care of him and he went home with the lost puppy. and what a surprise! after a few minutes, the puppy is running back to us and make papansin to Mahal Ko :-) So okay, we adopted him and gave him a lil space on our house. After making a make-shift bed for him, we decided to give him a name. I wanted "Bumblebee" or "Optimus" but Mahal Ko wanted "GUMP" yes, Gump as in the movie Forrest Gump.

Presenting our first baby........
