My Kitchen Adventures (with my sister): Episode 3 - Alphabet Pasta

A is for Alphabet, P is for pasta!
Yes, Pasta!  The main dish for our dinner.  The foods above made up our humbling dinner which was good for some dieting that I needed though.  My sister planned for this dinner and she was the chief cook that night too.
We named this dish as A-B-C PASTA ALA MAY (f.y.i - May is my sister's nickname). 

The main ingredient:  The pack of pasta that I bought from Hong Kong but was actually made in Italy. It was the first time that I saw a unique form of pasta, so I did not hesitate buying it.
The other equally important ingredient  is the red sauce with ground pork and sliced veggies.  The molten cheese as the perfect garnishing. 
 Can you locate the letter"B"?
We enjoyed looking for the letters of our names.  We sort of played a game as to who can form her / his own name.  Well, I did not win though. With 5-letters from my name to dig into hundreds of alphabet pasta,  indeed a tough competition, huh?

What / Where I Ate - Mang Inasal

Another fast food from the Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) is MANG INASAL.  Continue reading for the history of this fast food restaurant which I find quite unique in the sense that the main food being offered is grilled or locally termed as sinugba / inasal.
It all started with a Vision. Edgar “Injap” Sia, at the age of twenty six, grabbed the opportunity to lease a 250 square meter space at the Robinson’s Mall Carpark-Iloilo in December 2003. It was there that Mang Inasal, Hiligaynon for Mr. Barbeque, was born. Early on, he learned the importance of following your instincts, taking risks, strategizing, negotiating, and motivating yourself and your people. He also knew that the Filipino barbeque quick service restaurant category still had the potential for growth. He started a business that had the potential for nationwide expansion.

The primary reason for Mang Inasal’s success is its wide array of Filipino comfort food, especially Chicken Inasal - with its dist…
