From Scratch

Hi there everyone! It has been over two (2) years that I have been on blog hiatus.
Moving from my comfort zone to a whole new unit has not been that easy.
In that two (2) years of hiatus, in my heart I know that I will always go back to my
first love - WRITING.

I cant leave a promise that I will be posting regularly due to my unpredictable
work routine but for sure I shall go back and share some stories to everyone
that you can relate with and learn from. I miss hearing from my readers too!

I just have to prepare this page to become better and readable perhaps?
Its nice to be in my second home - BLOGGING.

God bless everyone!

My Recipes: Dynamite Ala Vee

Since cooking has been one of my de-stressing activities, I did cook this very simple appetiser/pulutan recipe. So if you are a fan of hot and spicy food, you may continue reading this post. 


Lumpia Wrapper
Long Green Chillies
Cheddar or Quick Melt Cheese
Canola Oil or your own choice of cooking oil




1. Wash up the chillies then cut it lengthwise just enough to remove its seeds.
2. Remove the seeds of chillies.
3. Re-wash the chillies (you may omit this if you want it to be more spicy) then drain.
4. Slice the cheese thinly so as to cover the entire space of the chillies.
5. Stuff the chillies with cheese.
6. Wrap the cheese stuffed chillies with lumpia or milo wrapper.
7. Fry then set aside.
8. For the dip, combine mayo and ketchup then stir and get that soft consistency.
9. Serve.

I just spent a Php 100.00 with this recipe so why don't you try it? Have a Spicy Sunday!!!

Restaurant Review: ASAO Grill and Steak House

For my last post, I have featured CAFE ANTIX. For this blog post, I am featuring ASAO Grill and Steak House, which can also be found in Cavite City particularly at 897 P. Burgos Avenue, San Roque Cavite City. Its the same road en route to PN or Naval Base Pascual Ledesma. I actually had my lunch on said restaurant the day after I had my dinner at Cafe Antix.

Asao Grill and Steak House business hours is from 0900H - 2030H. Last call for orders is actually at 2000H. Just last September 3, it has already been featured at Mikael Daez' Midnight Express in GMA 7.

Restaurant Review: CAFE ANTIX

One of my havens when I feel stressed out or simply finding a place where I can review, read and draft my articles/reports/blog posts or unwind include cafeterias.  NCR is actually convoluted already with the different coffee and tea shops.

Coffee shops located in McKinley, Resorts World area, BGC and Pasong Tamo area were already my tambayan sites. Aside from having a place where I can find a piece of serenity, it's also near my workplace so whenever my boss have an emergency call, as we always say, isang tumbling lang.

Come March 2014, my world became a total revamp. An order was given to me sending me to a schooling, which will later on change the course of my total being..as a naval officer, as a wife, as a daughter and most especially as a mother.

From a totally enclosed, cool room in Fort Bonifacio, I was transferred to Cavite City. Being reassigned to another unit and transferring from one place to another is inevitable. Nevertheless, it must not be discounted that I had a bit of a problem on adjusting. I had a hard time looking for a new tambayan. 

Three days prior leaving Cavite for my break before reporting to my ship, I successfully found the perfect place where I can stay once I get back to PhilFleet. CAFE ANTIX.


Cafe Antix is located at 5125 P. Burgos Ave. Cor. Cabuco St. Caridad, Cavite City (right after Subi Monte). Its theme is actually antique inspired place. Here are some of the photos of the cafe:

Cozy table set inside the cafe. They actually don't have available seats outside the shop. From the outside, you will think that it has a small space so I was actually surprised that the place was quite roomy.
They have nice depiction of the old television type and other appliances. 
The familiar antique stuff you may find inside the cafe.

An every angle shot of the cafe.

So the ambiance of the place has already passed my standards. How about the food? Here's what we had:
Forgive me on this part. My friends and I were really hungry we even forgot the name of this. But this is a pizza good for both veggie and meat lovers (omnivores). This is just Php 300.00. Good for 4 people.
This is Cafe Antix' Matcha Green Tea, my choice. This costs Php 70.00 for 8oz.
Cafe Latte at Php70.00.
We were supposed to add up pasta in our orders. But since the pizza is already heavy (not expecting really that the pizza would really be good that I was even surprised by its affordable rate), we opted not to add up pasta dish. THE MENU.

(This one I won't put watermark) For those who would like to visit Cafe Antix, here is what in their menu:

Pasta Menu
Sandwiches and Burgers. (Good for sharing)

My Recipe: Peach Halves Frozen Cake ala Vee

If you noticed, I am more inclined to cooking main courses and or appetizers. Admittedly, desserts is not my forte. But I actually endeavor to learn more of making pastries. Hopefully when time permits, I will be able to have some training at TESDA or maybe a formal training perhaps at a culinary school.

So here's my version of PEACH HALVES FROZEN CAKE:

1 can broas
1 can 400g peach halves
2 cans Nestle Cream
1 can Alaska Condensed Milk


1. Cut Peach Halves into thin pieces. Set aside.
2. Mix Nestle Cream and Condensed Milk.
3. Lay broad flat on your container then top it with the cream and milk mixture.
4. Repeat procedure 2 till the layer almost reach the top.
4. On the topmost layer, place the peaches. Pour the remaining cream and milk mixture.
5. Chill it for about 2 hours.
6. Serve cold.

So far, my kids and my husband loved it better than when I used graham. Broas is already sweet so I did cut my condensed milk usage to one can instead of using 2.

Have a sweet tooth day everyone!
