Hello everyone from a snowy Munich! Last night, we cooked chicken pancit.
Ingredients are simple – chicken breast, garlic, ginger, spring onions, carrots, celery, green beans, red pepper. Prepare ingredients, cut chicken in small pieces and the vegetables, too. Crush garlic and ginger in a mortar and pestle. Fry the chicken with a little rapeseed oil, take them out once brown. Fry the ginger and garlic, add the vegetables. Take them out of the pan. Fry the soaked noodles or pancit, add the chicken and vegetables.
It was delicious!

Hello everyone! I was able to buy some vegetables so I made “pinakbet” which was stir fried vegetables with bagoong or soy sauce. It was delicious!

Trying street food in the Philippines is fun but challenging
Emerge yourself by tasting some weird food like balut and kwek-kwek
But also be prepared to have some belly ache afterwards
Street food in Manila is cheap but you can’t be sure
It’s very popular but you also have to be careful
You never know where they come from and might not suit your system
cheap and fun
you can get them anytime
tell me what you think*

* How to Write a Sijo
* There are three lines which average 14-16 syllables. The final count is 44-46 syllables;
* Line one introduces the theme;
* Line two elaborates on the theme;
* Line three introduces a counter-theme and concludes with a “twist”;
* Each line has a pause – or caesura – roughly in the middle (commas are great for this);
* Each half line is 6-9 syllables long;
* There is no end rhyme;
* There is no title;
* Western sijo are often printed in six lines, breaking lines at the pause.
…This is because a 16-syllable line is quite long – spilling beyond the space allotted to one printed line.

Hello everyone! Just sharing some of the food we’ve been cooking.
The first one – steak pie. Cut the beef in cubes, fry them with olive oil or rapeseed oil. Add cider, mustard, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Prepare the pastry and roll them. Put the meat in a dish, add the pastry on top. Bake in preheated oven 180 to 200 degrees, for 30 to 45 minutes or until it’s brown. Boil some potatoes, then mash them with some butter and milk. Serve with some peas and wine.
Second dish – baked aubergine. Slice the aubergine, chop the onions and tomatoes, grate some cheese. Oil the pan or dish and put the aubergine, onions, tomatoes, add the grated cheese on top. Put in the preheated oven 180-200 degrees for half an hour or until brown on top.
Third dish – pork medaillon with cream. Cut the pork into cubes, fry with sliced onions. Add mustard and mushrooms. Simmer. Add cream. Serve with pasta and wine.
Have a gorgeous week everyone!
