Lugaw Topped with Chicken Adobo

Lugaw with Chicken adobo

Our merienda for today (afternoon snack) – Lugaw (rice porridge) topped with chicken Adobo (stew) one of the famous Filipino dish. This was prepared by hubby even if it’s already summer here, it’s still nice to eat something hot as the weather hahaha..

To make some variations on the regular Lugaw (rice porridge) partner with tokwa’t baboy (fried tof/bean curd and boiled pork), this one is a real deal too as the sweet and sour taste of Adobo compliments the usually bland Lugaw just like what the tokwa’t baboy dipped in vinegar, soysauce, brown sugar, black pepper powder and fresh minced garlic mixture did.

So the next time you have some left-over Adobo pork or chicken in your fridge, try it with your regular lugaw and you won’t regret I assure you. :)

My Fruity GelFlan


Leche Flan, Gelatine and Fruit salad are the favorites among Filipino desserts, and always a feast or a celebration won’t be complete if any one of them is not present on the table. So how about combining these desserts in one by using ingredients from all of them which was what I did with my Fiesta GelFlan.


I found the recipe online but did some modifications on the ingredients like increasing the quantity to make it more creamy and flavorful. Actually this is my second try, the first one was a bit watery because I followed the cooking direction on the box of the powdered gelatine which is 1.5 liter, here in the second one I adjusted the water as you can see in the ingredients, add two more eggs which is only 2 on the first recipe and I think it came out better than the first one. :)


  • 1 pack gelatine powder
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1 big can evaporated milk
  • 1 big can condensed milk
  • 1 can fruit cocktail (syrup removed)
  • sugar (as per preferred sweetness)
  • molding container (where the warm mixture will be place)


  • Dissolved gelatine powder in 3 cups of water plus the syrup from the fruit cocktail
  • Mix-in condensed milk, evaporated milk, beaten eggs and sugar to the gelatine mixture
  • Cook in low heat while continuously stirring to prevent lumps until the gelatine and eggs are completely dissolved and cooked
  • Remove from heat, add fruit cocktail to the cooked gel-flan, put in a molding container
  • Let it cool before placing in the refrigerator to harden.
  • If you will serve it in a platter, run the bread knife on all sides of the molder, cover the molder with the serving platter and move it upside down, then remove the molder.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Variation: you can use or add all-purpose cream..

4 Reasons You Need to Book Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea dates back to the reign of Queen Victoria, who would often enjoy a spot of tea and a cucumber sandwich come 3 o’clock. In fact, the Victoria sponge cake was named after Her Royal Highness, as she was partial to a slice in the afternoon.
Since then, the service, which was once enjoyed in the comfort of a person’s home, is now commonly enjoyed in hotels, country houses and luxury tea rooms across the world. If you haven’t tried it yet, here are 4 reasons why you need to book afternoon tea.

1. The Perfect Day
Without afternoon tea, Alice in Wonderland might never have been. Think about it, would the tale be the same without Alice sitting in the tea party scene with the Mad Hatter? We think not. The chances are, when you enjoy afternoon tea you won’t be joined by some of the crazy characters like in the Lewis Carroll novel, but you will have the chance to enjoy a plethora of finger food and yummy tea.
You and your loved ones can therefore enjoy each other’s company as you delve into all sorts of cakes, scones and sandwiches. How amazing does that sound? Unlike Alice in Wonderland, you will most likely dine in a country house, tea room or a luxury hotel for a spot of tea and good company, as it is now more commonly served in more commercial environments, despite the fact it was once served in a person’s home.

2. Perfect for All Celebrations
Afternoon tea is a fantastic way to celebrate a variety of occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, hen parties or just life in general. This sophisticated food service is bound to make a birthday girl or bride-to-be feel very special, as she will be surrounded by her loved ones in a luxurious environment. Now that sounds perfect!

3. Ideals for Every Age
Everyone from your great grandmother to your teenage daughter will love afternoon tea, as it offers delicious treats that most people will appreciate. We defy anyone not to enjoy an afternoon that’s filled with an assortment of bread, cakes and scones.

4. Celebration of Tea
It’s not just Brits that adore a good cuppa, as countries such as Turkey, Ireland, Russia and Egypt love nothing more than a nice cup of the hot stuff. In fact, Winston Churchill once said “tea is more important than ammunition”, meaning there is no problem a cup of tea could not fix – and we couldn’t agree more with him.

So, if you’re yet to experience the wonder of afternoon tea, we recommend booking this fabulous dining experience at your next convenience. Remember, you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy afternoon tea, and that’s basically the same thing.
