Food Trip: Home Made Milk-Tea


Since last Friday I've been craving for some milktea! But I have no time of going out to buy some. Good thing my husband bought me a pack of fresh milk and I still have some tea bags left here and a little sugar.

All you need are the following: 
1 pack of fresh milk (any brand will do).

few tea bags, depends on how strong you want you tea.

and a few spoon/s of sugar (brown sugar is what I used, for we never really use white sugar here at home).

*Optional ingredients: Cinnamon Powder

All you have to do is:
Pour all the milk in a sauce pot and put it under low fire stove to heat. Let it warm up to a decent temperature BEFORE adding the tea bags. 
To measure the temperature, I usually just stick my finger in there. 
When it's hot but not scalding, put in your tea bags. 
You can choose to swirl them around, but you can also let them steep a while. 
Either way works. 

Swirl the bags around a bit until you get a nice milky color of tea. If you can smell the tea rising from the pot, then you can start to wrap up the heating process.
(*you can add your cinnamon right after the tea smell's rising).
Now we're going to add sugar. 
 I usually put a tablespoon or two in mine since I don't want it to be too sweet, but it should be just a little sweet. Then stir it liberally.
When you serve this drink, serve it HOT! It's so much better that way. 
BUT I want mine cold with ice cubes! :)

I hope you enjoy this one, and let me know your thoughts by leaving me some comments.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

Guadalupe The Musical, our miracle in Theater.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.

Guadalupe The Musical, Julie Borromeo’s Performing Arts Foundation, Inc current theater offering will help you realize that, there are miracles in life that we forgot to acknowledge, this are little miracles that we encounter in our daily lives, that instead of saying thank you, we ignore it because we aspire to be bigger, but this play made me realize a common cliché, sometimes dreams happen for those who are deserving to make it a reality, and that person don’t ask for that.
It is a superb musical to watch out for, even for non-Catholic it is worth a try due to its entertainment value, from the lighting design by John Batalla, the beautiful costumes, the wonde…
