Chef Kai

I am a Filipino food lover period. But sometimes I go overboard cooking the same usual dish and would  stress me thinking about what to cook later, tomorrow on the weekend and so on. Whenever I try to look for recipes that I could experiment I would usually end up not cooking them. Why? Some key ingredients are either hard to find nor expensive for someone like me who needs to budget properly to be able to save for my wedding soon.

And so in search for recipes I came across the SM Hypermarket Master Chefs, this is something new that SM is currently offering for everyone. On this edition of the Master Chefs, we have Chef Kai a Diploma holder of Professional Culinary Arts Center for Asian Culinary Studies. She is a retail Chef from San Miguel Purefoods Culinary Center handling Magnolia Poultry, Purefoods Hormel and San Mig Coffee. With so much more luck San Miguel Foods Corporation is the sponsor for this event.

What is the SM Hypermarket Master Chef's event all about? This is an event wherein SM Hypermarket opens another gate for their shoppers to stop, have a seat and learn some dishes that are new, yet affordable and easy to prepare for the whole family to enjoy. Just what I needed, plus bonus is using San Miguel Foods Corporation products as their main ingredients makes the process all the more easy since these products are available in almost all supermarkets nationwide.

So here are some recipes we could all try and enjoy =)

Today, 26th of July, a few minutes past 1 AM, Some parts of Luzon and Manila felt another earthquake Magnitude 5.9 . My heart is still a bit nervous since the last time I felt the quake was when I was still in grade school so feeling it all over again makes me worry.

I am in the office working the night shift and was writing down notes when i felt the earth shaking, silence and then people from other departments started talking about it, it was indeed an earthquake, I fixed my bag just in case we needed to go out. For a while it was kinda "woah did you feel that" moment but after that I feel scared and after this post I will pray that we may all be safe... hope youd o too...

Let's all be alert... God Bless us

*My first ever showbiz press conference, I was nervous and a bit confused on how to go about going inside the compound, oh well good thing is I got in contact with one of my blogger friend Lariza, so we went into texting that day on where and how to meet up - MRT station! After we got off the Quezon Ave station we saw another blogger, Jeman so we decided to take the tricycle since it was too hot to walk. And finally entered the ELJCC Building.*

It was an exciting experience since I get to see actors and actresses in person, have their pictures taken and be near them for a photo too. That experience alone made my day =). Thanks to Flow for the invite =)

the collection... so far
*we won* - updated 8/4/2011

here's a bunch of coca-cola stuff that Jay (my fiance`) and i are collecting. A few coke bottles with different coca-cola logos. Coke in cans my hubby seriously collects because he said these cans has something different in each of them: logo, design, the shade of red he really spends time looking into these cans whenever we go to the grocery plus these cans are empty yes they are sealed but empty we created a hole underneath it to be able to remove the content because we thought it might burst on it's own because of pressure issues if not removed. And finally the coca-cola bottles from McDonald's. The first time it hit the stores we had a hard time completing them since of course you still need to buy a meal before you could actually add Php25 and purchase it (budget issues) plus the fact that sometimes all the colors were not available, The second batch that came out we almost gave up because we only had like 2 pcs of it. Then one morning before Jay comes home from work he called me up and told me that McDonald's near our office has a complete set available and people are going crazy so immediately we decided to just go get them... he ended up coming home carrying the complete set of glasses plus 6 sets of hamdesal meal hahaha.

*some glasses lost their boxes (wet) because of typhoon Ondoy

Jay and our collectibles
mug and shirt bought from ukay-ukay








space available for the next batch


Wondering what this is all about????

crossing our fingers to win this =)
The new set of MCDonald's Coca-Cola Glasses is coming in July 2nd and we want them all and if we could get it for FREE it will be a Blast!!! A great addition to our growing Coca-Cola collection.
