A Foodbloggers Meme Around The World

I’ve had few busy weeks but today I found the time to do this interesting foodbloggers meme. In Our Kitchen‘s JMom has tagged me.

1. Please list three recipes you have recently bookmarked from foodblogs to try.

Bookmarked for months, no time to do.

2. A foodblog in your vicinity.

An expat but non-Pinoy, The Chef’s Madam is also blogging from Beijing, her boyfriend being a retired Chef.

3. A foodblog located far from you.

Right now I could think of those in the USA’s east coast states like Stef in Pennsylvania, Ces in NY, JMom and Dexie in North Carolina, Tina in New Jersey…

4. A foodblog (or several) you have discovered recently (where did you find it?).

I found few pinoy foodies while surfing about a couple of months ago… Lasang Pinoy 1st-timers from the LP8 round-up: Zita, The Unofficial Cook and Kusina ng Aming Tahanan.

5. Any people or bloggers you want to tag with this meme?

I wanna tag Ces who’s far away from me, Mita the Unofficial Cook who’s in the Philippines right now and busy busy Karen (hope she hasn’t been tagged yet) so she will be back blogging again.

I am not a professional cook. My only claim to having a culinary background is a short stint as my dad’s teen ‘sous chef’ in his carinderia ages ago. Dad ran small eateries since I was a young kid - serving standard ‘turo-turo’ food ranging from the likes of menudo, adobo, pritong isda, dinuguan, binagoongan, bopis, munggo, pinakbet and giniling to merienda fares like goto, ginataan, pancit bihon, halu-halo and saging con yelo.

My father, a farmer in his hometown before working his way to becoming an accountant, definitely influenced my cooking in a lot of ways than I thought. My siblings and I were raised in a backyard full of fruit trees and vegetable garden. We spent weekends and the summer breaks running around with ducks, chickens, goats and pigs. I had wonderful memories of gathering eggs, butchering chickens, selling vegetables and the sweet aroma of preserved fruits. But my love for art led me to a degree in Architecture. Just few months after getting my license, I went abroad and lived independently at age 23. Definitely no maid, no cook, and a totally different food culture. Along the way I met lots of friends and spent what seemed a lifetime learning new tricks and recipes.

Now living in Auckland, I am a work-from-home mum who juggles time between work, fun and family - in pursuit of work-life balance. No matter how busy I am, I love the idea of cooking for my family. My blog chronicles home cooking greatly influenced by life outside my home country from Southeast Asia to Beijing and Auckland. And most of the time, being busy also means easy (sometimes quick), affordable meals.

  1. Hehehe! Sure Isky, I’ll do it! No matter how busy I’ll still do it. May utang pa ako kay Cecilia pero matatapos ko rin yang lahat! :lol:

  2. Iska,

    I might go to Shanghai, 50/50. But will let you know. I’ll be staying at Madarine City with my in-laws. Kita tayo ok? It’ll be nice to put a face on the name and blog. Plus I’d like to meet Cean din, para may kalaro so Patrick. Email me ok.
