Kikay Monday: Korean Food + Ice Cream

Mondate with friends... Since each of us are busy during weekends my friends and I decided to see each other every Monday to go out, window shopping, eat, drink coffee and whatever "kakikayan" that we can think of. Its our way of catching up and de-stress.

Love Midnight Snacking?

I actually just bump into this video commercial from Athena milk while browsing online. I immediately got attracted to the question they ask. Yes I love midnight snacking its something that keeps or helps me stay awake while working till the sun comes out. Workig graveyard shift is no fun for right now anymore. I cant concentrate on the task at hand because all I think is sleep. So I diverted my attention to games or food. My fave foods are:

Ding Dong Mixed Nuts - I don't like the nuts but I like the cashew and green peas on it.

Red Berry Yogurt On Pink Fridays

Its another Pink Friday! I'll be sharing to you my favorite healthy dessert in pink cup. Yogurt! I love it mixed with fruits but on the photo below I tried mixing cashew nut to my usual fave add-ons which are kiwi and blueberry. Verdict? Nah I didn't like it. :( The cashew nuts was added too many that I can no longer taste the fruits. I still prefer fruits on my yogurt. I like eating cashew nuts but definitely not with yogurt...

Chef Hasset's Baking Workshop Series

Last February 19, 2012 I along with fellow CDObloggers attended the  Culinary Institute in Cagayan de Oro Open House. This is actually my second time to visit CIC because I have also been invited to the All You Want Bars!  Pastry Workshop of Chef Hasset go.

This time around its another pastry workshop which is the favorite cakes cooking demo still with Chef Hasset Go. It started early in the morning and I was even late for the orientation. After that we were toured around there school rooms and facilities. In one of the rooms there was an on going class on international cuisine. Ahhh! I cant wait for April to come so I can start with my International Cuisine 5-Day Workshop. ;)

Finally, the workshop started. We were given the menu of each 4 cakes to be baked; Caramel Custard Cake, Concorde, Purple-Jackfruit Cake and Chocolate Truffle Cake. Since the baking is long we were able to witness the baking demo for Caramel Custard Cake and Chocolate Truffle Cake because the other half resume on the afternoon.


Its really fun and interesting learning on how to bake cakes. I myself would love to learn more of it because I want to bake and decorate it according to my taste. However, I opted for the international cuisine workshop this summer because I wanna learn cooking delicious cuisines from different parts of the world first.

That 2 workshops I have attended in CIC, hype up my interest and inspired me to really pursue cooking and baking class. Watching and listening to Chef Hasset Go made it more inspiring because he started young on the pastry industry which dubbed him the youngest pastry chef in the country.  Other than that, because of he knows how to cook different delicious food and he bakes pastries and sweets he found a career and eventually build his own business. And of course not to mention his good-looking features (you guys know what I mean. :D) which every girls weakness is already inspiring because you will be seeing Chef Hasset at CIC as one of the instructors.

Pinoy Delicacy: Biko

Filipino Food Biko
Filipino Food Biko

Good Friday. Rather than the usual binignit we prepared biko (rice cake topped with caramel topping or latik). I bought for the ingredients and then my neighbor cook for it and then we share it after. My mom got lazy cooking biko even if she does know how to cook it because she was thinking that only 3 of us going to eat it and added to that mom and I cant eat to much of food which was cooked with coconut milk in it (or even oily foods) because if we do our heads would be aching and feel dizzy the whole time. In short kabuhion me... :D

Fun Shots @ Galam!

I forgot to blog that CDOBloggers is officially registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Yepeey!
This is the reason why last July 11, 2009 (Saturday) we schedule an ID photo shoot for CDObloggers officers at Galam. Too bad not all officers was able to come, so the rest of the hours was spend taking fun shots which we usually do.
