It's Been a While

It's been a couple of weeks since I last wrote. I have been quite busy with work lately. I apologize for not being able to write.

Also, I am seriously considering building my website. I still have to work on that though.

I have just submitted an article to F&B World magazine. Pls watch out for it and visit the restaurants when you are in the area.

I am thinking of sharing a few things in the next few posts. My favorite things! Coming soon...

Happy Holidays!!!

It has been a really hectic holidays for me. Pardon me for not being able to write over the holidays. We had plenty of guests and visitors over the holidays and I tried to take time off from work to relax a little bit.

Work is really crazy these days. I have a number of business trips to do in the next few weeks. I will probably start the classes for 2009 sometime after January 22nd.

I'll work on a recipe to share soon.

Happy Holidays to you all.

CK Baker's Center - Your Friendly Baking Supply Store

I have been buying most of my baking supplies for the classes from CK Baker's. I stumbled into the store while on my way home. Since the other baking supply store is so out of my usual route, i am in constant search for new places to buy my ingredients.



Located along EDSA, next to QC Styropackaging Corp. and across Lemon Square, you won't miss it since it's an easy access along the highway. One problem you might have is the limited parking so you'll probably have to either park on the side street or double park along EDSA.

It makes me happy to be able to find a baking supply store where the staff and the owners are very personable. They always welcome their customers with a smile and is always ready to assist.

They offer wide array of products like: chocolates, flour, dried fruits, fillings, nuts, and the list goes on and on...For your baking supply needs, visit the store. I can assure you guys, the visit would be worth it. The prices are very competitive too.

See you there.

Finally...

I have been contemplating if I would blog or not. I have been thinking if would do it or not. A lot of my students and colleagues have been persuading me to have one. I have been told that I have plenty of things to share about food and my day-to-day activities so I guess it's about time. Also, I will do my best to write as much as I could as well as share my class schedule regularly.

Life has been quite hectic for me since I joined the company I work for. I have been traveling like a flight attendant
lately, which is both fun and tiresome. It's crazy but I don't really mind doing the trips. I try to balance my personal life and work when I am out of the country by incorporating the usual touristy stuff in between and after work.
It's been quite tough and hellish lately especially after the incident that happened about 6 weeks ago at this fast food chain along Emerald Avenue in Pasig. My left hand as never been so compromised but I am coping up with the daily developments. It took a long while for the injury to form a skin and it's been painful and triple hard to do my daily chores. The dentist's and chef's (Yeah, I am both a Dentist and a Chef) main tool of trade is the hand and it's really crippling when one's appendage gets injured. Anyway, enough of that for now. I will talk more about it in my next few entries.


To start this blog, let me share a recipe that I did for lunch. Enjoy!
