Boracay, Philipines

fresh seafood at market
A few weeks ago I went to Philippines  to sail in the Boracay Cup. I left Hong Kong at some crazy hour in the morning, took Cebu Pacific to Manilla. Next I took a plane from Manilla to Caticlan airport in Boracay, I had one of the scariest landings I have ever been in, the runway is so frikin short, and when we came in for the landing the plane was rotating side to side and when we landed I swear the back wheels lifted up a bit, actually people clapped when the plane finally stopped! scary...

Banana Flower Salad

I picked up a banana flower in the market the other day so decided to make banana flower salad. I made a similar salad in a cooking class in Vietnam a few years ago. The problem with this cooking class was that every ingredient was cut and prepared already so you only had to mix the ingredients together.
