Tom Yang

This is a spicy noodle with a different kind of seafood such as mussels, squids, clams, shrimps, and etc. I taste this noodle also when I was in Singapore. I really like the taste of it because I like spicy foods that's why it really suits my taste buds. I don't really much like an asian noodles but this one I can say that I liked it. At first I don't wanna taste it because i don't really like it but my friends forced me to taste it because they said that it really taste good so that's why I have to try it before I said No. So what I did I taste the noodle and agree with my friends that the noodle is really good and delicious. In this case, I learned that I should have to try things before I said No.

Mer Lion

This shot was taken when I went for a tour in Singapore with my friends. It is our first day to arrive in Singapore. After we check-in to our hotel we go directly to the place where we will see the MerLion. We walked so long just to get to the MerLion's place from our hotel. Just because we don' know about yet about where to go and where to ride what we did is walk thru going to the Merlion's place we just realized that we walked too long when we are already in the place. But it was fun and a good exercise as well.

Funny Face Pancakes

Last July 18, 2009 it's my mom's birthday. My two nieces asked me to make a pancake and the reason they want me to make it because they want to help and learn how to make pancakes. So what I did I took them with me in our kitchen and teach them how to make a pancake. Everytime I cook my nieces always watching me cooking they always watch beside me to look what i am cooking because they want to learn how to cook. While i'm preparing the hotcake pan my nieces are enjoying mixing the pancake mixture and then they are both excited to cook the pancake on the pan because the pan has a funny face design, so when we cook the pancakes it has a funny face figure. That's why my nieces called it Funny Face Pancakes.

Camias Fruit

This fruit is also grown inside our backyard because my mom's really love to plant different kinds of tree. This fruit we usually used for cooking sinigang (sinigang is a popular filipino dish) that most of us really love even some of my friends in Australia we also used it for pangat and paksiw (also filipino dishes). This fruit is rich in citrus. It has also plenty of use of this fruit, it can be use in salsa,pickled,or eat it raw with the salt or a fish sauce to have a balance taste that not gonna be too sour to eat.

Sugar Apple

This is one of my mom's fruit plants inside our backyard. This fruit has a really sweet taste. It is one of my favorite fruits that i really love to eat because of its sweetness. It's fruit flesh is sweet, white to light yellow, and resembles and tastes like custard. It is slightly grainy, a bit slippery, very sweet and very soft. This fruit also is rich in calories and a good source of iron.
This fruit also known as a custard apple but here in the philippines we called it "atis" in our language (tagalog).

Nice View

A nice and a relaxing view.This is our cottage when me and my friends when on a swimming outing in Zambales here in the Philippines. The resort is so quiet that if you want to relax you can have it not unlike if you are in a city you can hear the sounds of different cars, machines and etc. not unlike here it so quiet and peaceful. This picture was shot by one of my friend who like to take a photo of anything that he can see. Looking at it is so good in the eyes. because of the green trees beside the nipa hut and a mountain behind it.

This Iced Coffee is one of my favorite every time I go to Starbucks. It really refreshes me especially when its hot here in our country. I liked it because of the crashed ice with it with the flavor of moccha that I really love. This coffee really popular in different parts of the world same like here in the Philippines.


This beers is one of the most popular beer here in our country (Philippines). It is most like of people here who loves to drink beers.

Tuna Nicoise Salad

I made this salad back when I was still working in a hotel. One of my Sous Chef also my mentor taught me how to prepare this salad and some of the salad I post to my blogs. This salad also one of my favorite that I made because of on how to prepare and present it. For me, it looks very gorgeous.This is a salad that is very good to the eyes and very appetizing for the tongue especially if you like tuna and veggies. This salad is consists of a seared tuna seasoned with salt and pepper wrapped with roasted sesame seed. For the salad, julliene slice of iceberg lettuce,cherry tomatoes that cut into half,green beans(blanched) and boiled quail eggs. For the presentation, arrange the salad in a Martini glass with the seared tuna and the other ingredients. And a Balsamic Vinaigrette for the dressing.

Tip: If you were going to eat or prepare a salad I suggest that put the dressing on the side or just pour the dressing i you already going to eat the salad.So that, the salad still crunchy especially the veggies.=)

A beautiful sunlight in the center of the clouds. When I was staring at the sky I saw this beautiful image that really got my attention as if that the sky was so near to me that I can touch the clouds. I really like the shattered lights from the sun that is in the middle of the clouds. It was so wonderful and it is so nice to see a kind of view like this of our natural nature. I find it really attractive.

Tomato Mozzarella Salad

A salad with a round slices of tomato and fresh mozzarella that garnish with a fried basil leaves and a pesto sauce for the dressing. It is a very good salad if you like tomatoes and pesto sauce. I can say that the fresh mozzarella is a very good cheese. It is one of my favorite cheese it taste like a fresh caraboas cheese that here in the philippine we called it "kesong puti" the only difference is that the fresh mozzarella is gummy while the fresh caraboas is like the same cheddar cheese.This salad is good for appetizer.

Waldorf Salad

A salad that is very appetizing and refreshing that's why it is one of my favorite salad. It is made of apple chunk and dressed with mayo for the dressing and for the presentation, a round thin slice of apples that is layered alternately (round slice of apple and chunk apples with mayo) for the garnish a loloroso lettuce on top and a squeeze of a thick balsamic vinaigrette on the sides. It looks very appetizing.

Beautiful Day

A very beautiful day. A clear blue sky with a nimbus clouds made my day beautiful. The atmosphere was so relaxing while I was in the beach cottage. Just watching the sky and the calmed water of the beach made me relaxed. And it is too quiet and so peaceful that you can have a piece of mind to relax and inhale some fresh air not unlike in the cities.

Salmon rose with pesto

Salmon rose with pesto is a cocktail food that usually seen in cocktail party. This cocktail is made of salmon cream cheese wrapped in smoked salmon and top up with salmon roe and garnish with a chive with pesto sauce.

Foccacia Bread

This is a Foccacia bread. A bread that is made with sun-dried tomatoes and herbs. This bread is one of my favorite bread to eat when I was working in a Hotel. One of my Head Chef in Pastry always gave us this bread for a snack. I like it because it taste like a pizza like margarita pizza the only difference is that the foccacia bread doesn't have a cheese. I prefer in eating this bread is that, it is a freshly baked before eating it because like pizza it is nice to eat it while it is hot same way with the foccacia bread. And if you are ready to eat it i suggest that you dip it with the pesto sauce or in an olive oil.

lake mckenzie

This is one of my favorite pictures when I was in Australia. This lake named lake mckenzie. It is located in Fraser Island in Australia. The water here is very nice that you can relax because of it's calmed water as you can see in the picture. It's bluish water that really attracts the tourists who goes there. it is really attracting. And besides you can swim back and forth in this lake. It is really a nice place to come.

Singapore Money

This is a Singaporean dollar. It looks similar with the australian dollar. It looks like it is made of a plastic not like our philippine money that is made of paper. when you look at the money it looks like that it is not easily be broken not unlike our peso bill when it gets wet it can easily tear off just like a paper. And their bills have different sizes with every different value of bills and diferent colors like ours too.

Singapore tour

Last month, Me and my friends went to singapore for a tour. They are my friends when I went to australia. I really like this pic because here I can say that we really enjoyed in singapore. This is one of the place that we spent the whole day in Sentosa. Many said that you didn't go to Singapore if you don't go to Sentosa. And I can ay that Sentosa is really one of the beautiful place to go in Singapore. Images of Singapore is inside the Sentsa place. Inside this images of Singapore we knew and discovered their history. And their history is most likely our Philippine history. We really enjoyed our tour. We did a lot of things there as if that we cannot gonna go back there again. And we did our time very precious to make our tour really great. and that's what happened. And after that tour we were planning to go to different places or country. It's fun. It's nice to go to different places because in my eperience I can say that I can learn and understand their cultures.

about my life

hello! This is the story about my life. I am Khaye, 26 year old lady and single but i'm in a relationship.I took my primary and secondary level at Colegio de San Pascual Baylon in Obando Bulacan. I graduated college year 2004 at Saint Paul University Quez0n City, Philippines. The course i took up when i was in college is Bachelor of Science major in Hotel and Restaurant Management. When i was in high school the course i wanted to take is architecture or interior designing. Before i graduated high school i am taking entrance exams to different college schools, such as University of Santo Tomas where i took exam for architecture but i didn't get pass the test. So that's why i went to Holy Spirit College in Manila i took exam there for the course of interior designing and i got passed the entrance exam and im so glad that i did passed the test.and all i have to do is to enroll myself. But my mom told why don't i try to get an entrance exam in Saint Paul because?. Then I said ok i'll try to take an exam there. Then, that day we went to Saint Paul University in Quezon City. I took the exam and got passed the test with the course of Hotel and Restaurant Management or HRM as many called it. The course that even for once did not sink into my mind that i will take for college. To be honest, i don't like the course HRM before but when i got thru it I'm starting to like it as time goes by. And now my dream is to be an Excellent Chef...
