My dad's from Shishi City in Xiamen, China. My mom's from Guangdong Province but they both lived in Hongkong before deciding to live in Manila, Philippines.
My favorite things to cook
I thought I'd always love to bake, but it took too much time and I'd rather channel my energy to preparing healthy food.
Lots of pasta sauce
Noodles!!! -- Egg noodles
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fresh seafood!!! We have a helper who goes to the market to buy garoupa, parrot fish, shrimps and crabs. We steam alot. Our kithcen would NEVER have msg and fish sauce. We also have our version of steamed chicken. (ala Hainanese chicken) Yum.
My cooking triumphs
Cookies and cream cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
Burnt pancakes when I was 8. Bread hard as rock when I was 11. Lol.
