Engagement shoot

MING2207

This is it! We are ready! We are supposed to be ready but things happen.  My husband arrived in Manila April 13 and arrived in Legazpi April 16. We have very little time for the engagement photo shoot and we are getting married on the 21st of April. It was stressful! I’m crazy. The weather is adding up. The rain just didn’t stop! There is a tropical depression. My husband is getting sick of the weather changes. We have no more time. The date is too close and to add that the long holiday is coming! It is holy week already! I have lots of things to do! Calling the photographer everyday updating about our alternative concept when the rain don’t stop. Calling the make up artist! And oh! I have to get rid of my braces! Ahhhh…. what’s happening, the universe is not conspiring! I don’t like explaining things but I have to explain to my camera shy husband about what to do. I am also attending to our foreign guests where they are going and ahh they keep changing their minds… no way!!! I hate it! I hate it! I hate it!!!! Everything is a mess already until Holy Thursday when we woke up! The sun is shining brightly and it is just beautiful and perfect! God is great! The universe heard our prayers! It’s already Holy Thursday. I get rid first of my braces and then I called up the make up artist. Finally, we are on our way to our engagement photo shoot! I can only say, Thank you Lord! :)I wanted to shoot near the Mayon volcano but since it was holiday the ruins and other tourist place was full packed. We were lucky that our photographers are really kind and professional. They understand everything despite our tardiness to the appointment.

I wanted a very provincial photos of course featuring Albay province. Since I’m marrying an Italian, I wanted photos showing original things from my province. Our photographers are genius. They didn’t gave us a hard time during the shoot.

I’m happy to share with you guys the fruit of our hard work! Thank you so much R&R Studio and of course thank you God! Truly, nothing is impossible to you! You make everything conspire! 🙂

TINAPA spaghetti (Smoked fish)

DSCN5634

I’m back! Sorry, I’ve been absent for the past months because of my church wedding in the Philippines. I will blog about my wedding soon. For now, let me share with you one of the best dish you will enjoy.Tinapa spaghetti. Tinapa is common in the Philippines particularly in my region, Bicol. It is the Filipino term for fish cooked or preserved through the process of smoking. It is a native delicacy in my country and is often made of milk fish or locally known as bangus and or other small kind of fish. There are also big tinapa such as tulingan or turingan in my local dialect. And what’s the best partner of tinapa? Of course tomato! oh tomatoes!!!

As I thought, I have to create and reinvent recipes from my home town. Being married to Italian, I have to incorporate my taste bud to the Italian spaghetti.

Ok, Here’s what you need to make my new recipe.  I am cooking only for my lunch so here we go.
