A Plea, An Earnest Request and An Appeal

>> Thursday, August 28, 2008

Catchy title, eh? Actually, I just want to ask everyone a small favor, I am nominated over at Dashing Smiles as a possible winner of a free Blogger lay-out, and as you can see, I kinda have one of the most boring template ever (shh, I don't wanna hurt the feelings of the template's creator) and I really, really like a new one, something that will make this a foodie blog in a lay-out-y sense of the word. Anyone care to help me?

If your answer is yes (please, please, please, say yes, say yes!), all you have to do is go over at Dashing Smiles and vote for Kutsara at Tinidor. You can see the poll at the lower-right side of the site, just check the box beside Kutsara and Tinidor, click the vote icon and voila, you already did something to help your fellowman - which is me *grins*.

Just imagine, on your next visit here, a new tantalizing and delish template will greet you, ain't that nice. So, go on, go on, vote for me and make me happy!

Thank you! :)

My brother got home yesterday from his team building affair in Laguna, carrying these sweeties - butter polvoron, pastillas de leche and yema de quezo. The trio cost him 250 bucks, which is kinda expensive (if you'll ask me but as it is free, it doesn't really matter *lol*), all were uber yummy, yema is the best in the lot. I want some more!!!

A little explanation:
Kakanin are commonly known as rice cakes, here in the Philippines kakanin are a-plenty and it comes in different forms, tastes and bases. Aside from the kakanin that I have featured here, more varieties can be found depending on the province or town that you will visit, in this country, ones ethnicity define the foods that they eat and specializes at.

I'm supposed to put a little description of each kakanin in the pictures but I'm kinda lazy, and this post is long enough to bore you *grins*. If you have questions, kindly leave a comment and I'll try to answer you in due time *wink*.

Photos below are some of the more famous members of the Si-Log family, a viable part of Pinoy street foods. Commonly found at hole-in-the-wall establishments, but at the moment, more and more classy restaurants are offering them, some even have them as specialties, does Tapa King ring a bell?

My very first entry to Weekend Snapshot, we had lunch at Hi-nan Food and Tea House before we went to the nearby zoo yesterday. The food was great and the price fits right in the budget, a good place to go if you don't mind a panciteria-ish environment (read: it is a big hole in the wall restaurant). Happy eating!

Trivia: Hi-Nan Food and Tea House was once featured in Pinaka (a weekly show in QTV 11), I think the episode was about "pinakasulit na restaurant", other establishments in the list are Ma Mon Luk and Aristocrat (the rest I've forgotten, sorry).

About Me

I am a wife to the sweetest person on Earth and a mother to the cutest baby boy in the planet. I love reading literary books but I have an addiction in contemporary/renaissance romance novels. I am a video game aficionado in the truest sense of the word. I love to travel the world, if and only given the opportunity. I don't know how to cook (but I'm slowly learning) so there's a fascination with take-outs and dine-ins. I could go on and on but I guess you had enough *lol*.
