Cooking is a passion

Flambe - is a french word meaning "Flaming" or "Flamed" - means to ignite foods that have liquor or liqueur added. This is done for a dramatic effect and to develop rich flavor of the liqueur to the foods without adding alcohol.(get from wikipedia)

During our Banquet and Asian Cuisine

not allowed to take a pictures inside the hot kitchen while doing the flambe.

base: fried rice paper wrapper

mix of  orange, shredded coconut, mango and liqour.

cooking is a passion and you need to put some love while cooking a food, use a bit of your imagination, and creativity.

Lovely words: Cooking done with care is an act of love.

Happy Mother's day to all Mom's around the world

A tribute to all Mommy out there!

 Thanks for everything my dearest mom. It's been how many years had pass and we haven't see each other but you are always inside my heart. I didn't hug you and talk to you for long time but you know how much you mean to me.
You are the best MOM.. and I am very thankful because God gave you to me as my mom.

Sometimes, I thought I used to live alone and far from you but those sometimes I can't count how many times I cried and longing for your care and love, during my worst day and I am struggling in life, my happy days and my achievements that I want to share with you and my days that I almost fall and I want someone to lift me. I am sorry for those especial times that I have missed that I should be with you and for all the circumstances and for the pain that I caused to you sometimes. I will do everything just to make it up to you soon. I know you understand me why I chose to be away and live alone. 
I love you so much Mama and I always will..

Love and peace

While walking in the park I saw this dove house.. 

Lovebirds together join,
attracting each the other.

Chirping flight builds,
upon the love that buds.

True love future goal,
through the trials build.

to each other and God;

how sweet those lovely doves..
I feel its like a song from my heart

Spirit dove encompass,
enable victory’s trials.

Faith binds the lives,
love built by trial.

Birds in flight together,
with Spirit dove of love

perfect partner hot coffee, tea or chocolat..

Last friday was the last day of those trainees in university from Vela Co. an oil tanker company, if im not mistaken from mid east. They baked  different types of breads and pastries, their trainees have different work division and schedules and theyre very well organized and responsible. The chef who trained them was very strict and very talented chef and ofcourse they let us taste all the food they cooked and pastries they baked and it was YUMMY perfect.. but not allowed to take a pictures of their masterpieces.

and I remember this pictures we baked sometime ago when I saw the trainess pastries and bread.

mini breads with different shapes

corn muffins with cheeze

 with mung bean inside

Actually I dont eat bread that much because it makes me feel weak especially during my busy days and I have a lot of things to do. So I prefer to have a heavy meal than bread.

hot fresh from the oven


last friday we are invited in university commencement 2011 , some of 3rd year students, I and my classmates were the ushers that day in 2011 commencement I was almost fainted because I'm starving, the program starts noon time and we didn't had our lunch yet, because the said program supposedly starts at 10:30m but almost past 11am did'nt start yet. We waited for long hours, past 7 am we already in university and waiting for the driver who will pick up us going to the venue but unfortunately after an hour and half the driver is not yet around, we feel so annoyed, we take a cab going to the venue, we don't have any choice. And we are late, well, good for them (organizer) because I saw the driver just sitting down in the corner, instead of picking up us in unversity. So frustrating. sigh. And besides they dont pay us, our help given to them was free but at the end they blamed us for being late, it wasn't our fault because their driver keep us waiting and not inform us early, bad driver..
