1 glass tea juice
1 small onion
2 gloves garlic
1 pack magic sarap

3. Add iced tea juice and let boil. Put salt to taste.

Brunei's ABC

Brunei's ABC
Since it's summer, I'd like to share the dessert that I tasted in Brunei. ABC is Brunei's version of Pinoy Halo-halo. The mix of there ABC is corn, beans, gelatin, sugar syrup, evaporated milk and ice. It is like a halo-halo but the difference is the ice. Halo-halo here in the Philippines is crushed while in Brunei is in blocks, see the photo? This was taken when i was in Brunei particularly in Seria last November 2010.

Food Cost: B$1.00 Brunei Dollar

Alee Fish Hotdog

One month ago before hubby went abroad, we went to Dampa Farmers for lunch. While walking going there, i spotted a stall in farmers market that sells processed food that should be made of meat but to my surprised, the processed food is made of fish. I bought 1 pack of fish hotdog. They also sell fish longanisa, fish tocino, fish siomai, fish shanghai and many more. When we arrived home that day i was excited to taste the fish hotdog, so i cooked it immediately. The taste is the same as the branded hotdog like Tender Juicy and you cannot distinguish the difference. Food cost is only 36.00 pesos.
