An inspiration from India’s First Michelin Star Chef

I work in the aviation industry with academic background in information technology. Who would have known that I would find inspiration from a chef? Not just a chef, but India’s FIRST Michelin Star Chef.

A conference on Innovation

I recently attended the BOLDTalks Innovation 2017 event. This event is something that I look forward to every year because the topics are very engaging and relevant. This year’s event included the a Chef as one of the speakers. You’d ask yourself, what does a Chef have to do with innovation?

Beef Caldereta Recipe, Made Easy by Mama Sita’s Caldereta Mix

I used to be intimidated by Caldereta. It seemed so complicated. I’ll tell you why.

In the olden days…

Growing up, we would always have these family parties and gatherings at home. Aunts and Uncles would come over early to help with the preparations. Food were always made from scratch. And I mean no short cuts!

You need chicken? Pork? Beef? Goat? They buy them alive and slaughter them at home. Morbid, I know. But that was tradition … something that was not passed on to the next generation. I don’t know, we just can’t do it. We also did not use gas stoves when cooking. Not that we don’t have stoves, the older generation just prefer cooking with firewood. They say it adds flavor. Complicated, right?

Anyway … back to Caldereta.

Kimchikin : Good Food That Won’t Leave You Broke

Kimchikin Al Ghurair

A few days after our quick vacation in the Philippines, we were invited to try Kimchikin in their newest branch in Al Ghurair Centre. The place is cozy with contemporary, minimalistic design. A big TV plays Kpop music videos on the background. Being a Kpop fan, my niece would have loved it here but alas! she isn’t here and I was at a loss. I had no idea what I was watching. LOL.

“A” in Malaysia

May of 2015 I was again trusted to represent our company in one of the major events in the aviation industry. It was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

MY ARRIVAL IN MALAYSIA

Being a Filipino, we get visa on arrival in Malaysia. Being a business trip I had to make arrangement for travel and accommodation at least a month before the conference. The event organizer recommended Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, however the arrange rate was higher compared to the rate that staff from our company gets at the Marriot (Renaissance) Hotel, other than the room rate we also get discounts on F & B and other services. Other than that, Marriott is within walking distance to Sheraton (event venue). It is also close to the train station, a mall and a lot of street food vendors.
