Duchess of Luxury Manila

Duchess of Luxury Manila
Have you ever heard of a bag spa? I guess this is my first. All I know is, whenever I need to have my favorite signature leather bags cleaned or repaired, I bring them to the nearest reliable repair bag shop. Otherwise, I clean my bags by myself, but often times I’m afraid that my cleaning leads to a disaster. Recently, I was invited by a friend to attend the grand opening of Duchess of Luxury Manila – a bag spa and restoration shop. I got curious with the invite so and the venue of the event is so near to where we live, so I attended. When I got there, I saw lots of designer bags...

Tuyo Flakes Pasta (Spaghetti Aglio e Olio in Tuyo Flakes) Recipe

Tuyo Flakes Pasta (Spaghetti Aglio e Olio in Tuyo Flakes) Recipe
I was curious when a friend of mine was selling her Tuyo Flakes in Olive oil over facebook. I bought a jar since it’s not that expensive. 180 pesos a jar? Not bad right? I’ve been fond of experimenting on pasta in garlic and olive oil for months now but this time with tomatoes and Tuyo Flakes (salted dried herring). Well, it went well so far. Since tuyo is already salty, I didn’t add any salt to this recipe, just pepper to taste. It is very easy to adjust the saltiness of this recipe just by adding grated Parmesan or cheddar cheese. Now here’s the recipe Tuyo Flakes Pasta...

Pan Fried Chicken and Gravy ala Pancake House

Pan Fried Chicken and Gravy ala Pancake House
I was craving for Pancake House Pan Fried Chicken one time and there were no Pancake House near my home and aside from that, I was tight on the budget. So to satisfy my cravings for Pan Fried Chicken, I really have to search over the Internet thinking if I could get a recipe instead. And I found one, but I was unsure if it would really taste like Pancake House’s chicken, so I decided to try it. The recipe I found required overnight marination. So I was a bit sad because I wanted to eat fried chicken that day. I thought it was just easy to make. So at that moment, I cooked something else instead....
