I have been a member of blogger for many years, but with so many changes going on the web, there are a lot of new blogging platform. 


What I like about Jux is its easy to use interface. It showing many ways to blog like write an article which is blogging basic, then there's the BlockQuote, where your entries are on quotes. There's also the slideshow where you show pictures and a lot more.

They are new and indeed they're not perfect, there's so much room for more developments. I cant wait to use

Toast Box Breakfast

When in Singapore, my trip is never complete if I dont eat in one of those kopi tiam (coffeeshop) and my favorite meal is their Kaya Toast and Tea. Luckily, Toast Box (a Singaporean brand) is here in Manila and I can enjoy this singaporean breakfast staple anytime.

Kaya Toast is a toasted bread with Kaya spread and butter. Kaya is a thick spread which is made with coconut, sugar with pandan flavor.

I prefer my eggs soft, LOL! that's 2 mins in boiling water. Dont worry about Salmonela, water temperature is more than 100C. And it will give you this runny egg texture. Add pepper and soy to taste. 

How to eat this meal? Dip your kaya toast in the egg and take a bite. The taste is unbelievably yummy, its sweet, salty, crispy, soft. Thats a lot of flavor and texture in every bite.

I am not a coffee drinker, lets say I prefer tea over coffee. Toast box here in the Philippines doesn't show how they brew their tea or tea-pulling, the visual art of brewing tea, which was usually done in Singapore kopi tiams. Despite the lack of the visual tea/coffee technique, they're tea with condensed milk still tastes great. 

Kaya Toast + Soft Boiled Egg + Teh = Perfect breakfast food.

Breakfast Enchiladas

Here's one of my favorite breakfast food... Enchiladas.

Its so easy to make and customizing it the way you want it.


First, with little olive oil, saute the onion, mushroom, bell pepper
and ham for a few mins until ham is cooked.

Add the scrambled and and cheese. I cook this untouched until the egg is almost set at the bottom of the pan. Then I put the pan inside the oven to cook the top. Baking it for about 10 mins, 325F.

I usually pair this with bread but since I have available tortilla  in the fridge, Im going to use this.


You can also add spinach to this dish if you have them.

Blog to remember

As I ate breakfast alone today, It kept me thinking what should I do with my blog?
Should I continue writing? Or just completely ignore and just write whenever I feel like it.
I know I have so much going on with my life that I want to document. My memory is poor in remembering things but I try to remember as many events and things.
I think the purpose of this blog is for me not to forget things.

I'll do just that.

Yummy Singapore

1. Lau Pa Sat

When visiting Singapore, you must dine at Lau Pa Sat on Boomtat rd. beside Telok Ayer Market. They serve the best satay in the island. Knowing Singapore's law on food sanitation and hygiene, these street food are completely safe to eat. 

Satay are marinated, skewered and grilled meat served with sauce. Meat can be chicken, pork, beef, mutton or shrimp. The popular sauce partnered with these deletable grill meat is peanut sauce.

When you arrive at Lau Pa Sat, you'll be approached by sellers from various satay food stalls, but its still upto you where you want to seat. Usually food stalls serve tables on their area. We usually dine in at satay food stall 7 because they received The Best Satay Award couple of years ago.

2. Just Acia

Another favorite restaurant that I always go to every time in Singapore is Just Acia. I have a weakness for soft shell crabs, they are not prepared extraordinaryly but just fried until crispy. Another great thing about this restaurant, is every diners get unlimited drinks at their soda station and ice cream. They have about 10 flavors of ice cream to try. You can make your own float, since they have soda fountain.

3. Kaya Toast

This is one of my favorite Singaporean/Malaysian snack. Its widely available throughout the island. I usually go to Ya Kun Kaya Toast that made business since 1940s.

Kaya is a spread made with eggs, sugar, coconut milk and pandan flavor. Kaya is spread on toasted bread on one side and butter on the other. Its best eaten with soft boiled egg with soy and pepper.

4. Garrett Popcorn

One of the Best popcorn Ive eaten. This shop originally started in Chicago and Singapore is their only franchise in Asia. Garrett's popcorn have big corn kernels and without the presence of the hull. Its always pleasing to bite into it. The flavors I love is the Chicago Mix - popcorn in Caramel and Cheese flavor. They have other flavors some of them have almonds, pecan and macadamia nuts.

Did I mention, Garrett Popcorn was listed in Oprah's Favorite Things twice?

5. Chocolate Research Facility

For chocoholics like me, you shouldn't miss this shop when in Singapore. They have over 100 flavors to choose from. And when you want bubble gum flavor, you will indeed have that flavor without the gum sticking on your teeth. Their flavor combinations are amazing and they really made the chocolate taste like the real thing.

Nice packaging
