Tikoy for Chinese New Year

I know this post is way too late for publishing but will post it anyway. We don’t celebrate Chinese New Year like most people (non-Chinese) do. But we see to it to buy Tikoy or CNY cake to feast on even if the occasion is over. We bought it for only 100 pesos at Fairview Center Mall.

Cooking Tikoy is easy. Sliced the cake thinly and dip in egg before frying. Fry for a few minutes until golden brown. Best served with coffee or you favorite beverage.

Nian gao, sometimes translated as year cake or Chinese New Year’s cake, is a food prepared from glutinous rice flour and consumed in Chinese cuisine. While it can be eaten all year round, traditionally it is most popular during Chinese New Year. Wikipedia

Sweet Treats for Father’s Day

I’ve got a box of brownies for our Daddy here. We are celebrating his 22nd year as the cool and ever responsible Daddy to our two grown up children. It’s our daughter’s idea to buy him a box of brownies. I might be cooking something special for him unless they decide to have a food delivery. Happy Father’s Day, hon. Thank you for loving and taking care of our family.

The Perfect Gift for Your Office

It can be difficult to shop for those who are in your office. Whether you are shopping for administrative assistants or CEOs, you need to consider an appropriate gift. Various executive gift baskets can make it easy for you to get a gift while staying in your price range.


One of the top reasons that a gift basket makes a perfect gift is because of the variety found inside of it. You may find items ranging from bottles of wine to different types of crackers or cookies. It ensures that the person you are buying for will enjoy at least some of what is inside the basket.

Various Price Ranges

Everyone has a different budget when it comes to shopping for gifts. Executive gift baskets have a broad range in price. This way, you can get smaller gift baskets for some and larger gift baskets for others. You may find that it’s easier to give everyone a gift basket so that you don’t have to shop at a variety of different stores.


The many gift baskets will have themes. You can choose from candy themes, wine themes, pet themes, coffee themes, and more. This way, as long as you know even a little bit about the recipient, you can be sure to get them a gift basket that they are sure to love. If you don’t know much about them, you can stick with one of the more generic names, offering up a delicious variety of snacks.

Gift baskets are popular for anyone in your office. Plus, many are large enough that they can share with those around them, including family and friends. It will make it easier for you to give gifts throughout the holiday season and all year long.
