"A Father, Wannabe Chef and Trying Hard Photographer" - I’m a sucker for fish and different types of seafood. Fortunately, I’m not allergic to any of them because if I was, I wouldn’t be surviving life. My love for seafood is just extreme that I visit restaurants around the Philippines just to try the best seafood dishes. Therefore, it’s now my time to share with you some of the recipes I learned over the years.
