Year 2015 Recap

I know, i know ang dame ko ng utang magpapasko na at ito ang huling buwan ng taon. Maraming nangyari, naging busy at miningle-mingle ang time sa pagiging ulirang ina, part-timer worker, pagte-take ng short courses, pagluluto at pagbe-bake, kakakain at pag-e-exercise! hehehe Yes, you read it well!

Napagtanto ko na nakaka-anim na taon na itong aking blog na mangyaring na-abandon dahil sa kakulangan ng oras. Isang taong walang update, walang post, walang balita. As you can see, ito ang huling litraro na na-i-post ko sa FB. Sadyang kawali!
Pinayfries 6th year Blogsary 

Namnamin ang update mula laman hanggang buto! Aww! awww!!

Enero ; Ang unang buwan pag pasok ng taon na bumisita sa Paris kasama ang kanyang pamilya ang aking kaibigan na vietnamese na nanggaling pa mula sa Singapore. Syempre sila ay aking pinaunlak at pinaghandaan, as usual tuwing kame ay may bisita.
 Pork adobo with hard boiled eggs and potatoes
Pebrero ; Nag-umpisa akong mag diet. Ang tinatawag na 3-day diet na matagal ko ng ginagawa nuon pa sa Pinas. Ang hirap! pero ang bilis ng pagbaba ng timbang at epektibo. Pebrero din nag-umpisa ang pagpintura at pag renovate ng aming sahig at pagpalit ng kama to loft bed.
 our mezzanine ( mag-isa lang di Claudebiko na nag tayo nyan )
Marso ; Abay nag-pa bollywood brunch ako nyan kunwari gagalaw at sasayaw pero pag tapos pag-pawisan lafanggggg!!!
 Pares ( first time ko gumawa but masarap at sulit )
Abril ; Kaibigang bumisita sa bahay na matagal naming di nakita, nagprofit umorder ng cake so pick-up ang order ng pastries ko at sabay dinner with us :)
 Chicken a la king ( love namin ito at pede na raw pang restaurant )
Mayo ; Hulog ng langit at merong nagbibigay samin ng isda ilang ulit at ilang beses. Siya ay nangingisda by pleasure at kame naman ang taga-kain bless him! mahal ang isda dito kaya naman thankful kame sa kanya.
 Ginataang isda with lots of pechay and french beans
Hunyo ; Walang okasyon, naisipan ko lang na mag-luto at mag-imbita ng kaibigan medyo maganda at mainit-init na ang weather kaya naman habang merong kainan meron ding daldalan at the same time.
what you see is not rice, it was wheat grain for a change ;)
Hulyo ; Kame ay nasa Pilipinas at ang aming munting handa at salo-salo sa lugar na aming inupahan. Di na kame nagkaroon ng time masyadong magluto o mag dine out kaya naman sa tulong ng aking kapatid siya ay nag-adobong halo. 
Chicken and Pork adobo na manamis-namis ng aking one and only bro
Agosto ; Nasa Manila pa rin kame nyan at nothing can stop me sa pagluluto lalo na't merong grocery store nearby of course instead na kumain at lumabas sa restaurant i prefer na magluto.
I cooked them all except from boneless bangus na pinirito ng aking lil sistah
Setyembre ; Pagkatapos ng ilang linggo sa Pinas, pasukan ng buwan ng setyembre at ang unang bisita, ang aming kaibigan medyo inspired magluto at syempre filipino dish pa rin :)
Sinarsahang baka with friend rice 
Oktubre ; Natapos ang pasukan, pag-asikaso ng mga gamit sa eskwela at pag re-register sa mga extra scolaire activities. Nag-birthday ang aking mga siblings. Nagbirthday din si Claudebiko, and his son na kaparehong date sa pagkamatay ng aking biyenan na babae na nanay ni Claudebiko. Naumpisahan ko na ang aking project na magluto para sa pagbebenta ng pagkain thru internet. Ito ang naging photo shooting for the first time inumpisahan ko sa apat na dish to validate my menu. Of course, me taster one and only nga lang so yung tira kinain naminnnnn.
first photo shoot of monvoisincuisine.com
Nobyembre ; Ang taon-taon na ginaganap na Halloween party sa bahay. Syempre nagluto at nagprepare ako ng mga foods comme d'habitude. Worst friday the 13th ang sumalpak sa france dahil sa terrorist at maraming nasawian ng buhay at isa na ang kaibigan ng anak ni Claudebiko. Luksa at lungkot ang naramdaman. Nakakapunit ng puso ngunit dapat bumangon at maging matatag. Life must go on ika nga.
katakyut food on the table by yours truly
Disyembre ; Aking birthday month, at ang pinakahihintay na kapaskuhan. Busy sa pagbe-bake, pagbabalot ng regalo at kung ano-ano pa. Syempre nagbunga din ang aking effort, dahil month of december din nag-umpisa ang tanggap ko ng order thru internet ng mga lutong pagkain. Pag me tiyaga, me tocino este nilaga pala.

Easter Egg hunting, April fool's day and all chocolates: 2013 and 2014

Oh my goodness! it really seems like i abandon my blog! i haven't been posting since we came back from vacation but wait i have a quick post from yesterday's "Lundi de Pâques" ( Easter ) and some more pictures to share from last year's easter season.
egg hunting organized by the association in our neighborhood and it was held on the 1st April 2013

Fish be with u ---- Our fish of the day on April fool's day
Bibingclara's first egg hunt
her bonnet's full of colorful eggs
reward -- chocolate!
and more chocolates!
Easter Sunday - what a great fun dying easter eggs, good thing i found white eggs in the grocery normally we only have brown eggs in most supermarket. I bought six pieces to give a try. The idea got from the internet.
 she was really excited ...
 funny creme de chantilly - whipped cream  ha ha ha!
 we have no food coloring in powder so we use liquid ones and i let Bibingclara dropping
 wish it would work... patience, patience
voilà! hmm... next time will make it more colorful we haven't soaked enough our eggs that's why the result becomes like that. Next time, more whipped cream and we will make dark colors.I actually planned to eat the eggs one per day hehehe
The next day, we make our own Easter chocolates.
 she got so much excited to make chocolate candies
 the chocolate molds purchased long time ago
 we just melted black chocolate, we didn't put any filling
 taste test
 chocolates are ready!
voilà!
Yesterday afternoon, Bibingclara participated in the most awaited yearly egg hunting of course, organized by notre quartier 13.
 i followed Bibingclara while she was chasing up eggs
 i saw yellow one!
 and she picked up...
 her small hand bag full of eggs
 her fav color! green
 time to fill the box
 the egg hunters
 lining up for the reward
they all got lapin en chocolat :)
Until next year's, Easter chocolate madness (",)
