What To Do With Leftover Cake

If a cake tastes so good, it wouldn't probably last long inside the fridge. It would be gone like in an instant.

For a leftover cake that you are thinking of throwing away, here is a simple yet delicious creation to use it that could wow your kids or family.

What I have here is a leftover banana cake. It just takes a little of your creative kitchen skills.

Ingredients you need:

Leftover cake
Ripe bananas
Vanilla extract
Nestle Cream
Condensed Milk
Cocoa powder

Slice your bananas according to your preference or size of your container.

Mash your bananas using fork. Add the condensed milk, cream and vanilla flavor.

Top the creamy mixture into the layer of your sliced cake. Then sprinkle it with cocoa power. Refrigerate the cake for at least an hour.

Serve it cold.

You might be surprised how good it tastes.

So, don't throw your leftover cake. You can recreate it just like this.

Quenching the Summer Heat: Kabigting's Halo Halo

It's that time of the year again when you feel like you are going to have a heat stroke. That pricking summer heat is becoming unbearable.

The init factor reaches 38.5 Degrees Celsius in Manila while other parts of the country experience a 41 degrees Celsius temperature. Gosh! It is just so freaking hot.

It is tempting to always turn the aircon on but fearing a heart attack because of the electricity bill at the end of the month, you just decide to bear the heat instead.

A cold halo-halo would be so nice don't you think?

I took my first 2018 summer halo-halo bite at Kabigting's in Angeles City. And oh wow, it tastes so delicious and refreshing! I missed this! It was a heat-quenching experience after hours of walking under the summer sun, made me sigh with relief.

If you haven't tried Kabigting's Halo-Halo yet, you should try it now. This halo-halo would contradict what we typically see in a halo-halo. With only mashed bean, pastillas, cream corn, evaporated milk and ice, this halo-halo has less sahog but it is so creamy and tasty. And for me, it simply is the best halo-halo. 

I won't be surprised that Erwan Heussaff chose it as the best halo-halo. Check out his video here: The Best Halo Halo (Halo Halo History)

Kabigting's started in the 70's as a small carenderia in Arayat, Pampanga. It soon became famous because of its delicious halo-halo.

Bluer than Blue: Hinatuan Enchanted River, Surigao del Sur

Words are not enough to express the magnificence of Hinatuan Enchanted River in Surigao del Sur. If there are truly engkantos in the area as the old folks believe, then I must have been completely charmed. But who would not be mesmerized by the river's awesome beauty --it's bluer than blue, the depth seems unfathomable, the colorful and variety of fishes that suddenly appears during feeding time, and the surrounding exotic foliages and thick forest. It needs no magic to capture your heart.

I've never seen a river close to its magical beauty.

Around 3 o'clock in the afternoon, the bell rang. It signals swimmers to get out of the water because it almost fish feeding time.

The feeding time used to be at 12 noon. I don't know what happened, why the change.

Fishes of various species and sizes surface from under water.

Two men on a bangka fed the fishes as a song was played in the background.

Check this video during the feeding time:

Amazing! You'll be puzzled where all of these fishes come from. According to some folks, the number of fishes declined through the years.
