The class was held in Aicel 21, Josei Kaikan in Aoi District, Shizuoka City today, Tuesday--Feb. 11.
Dining and lecture time
4 dishes in one
I was just supposed to drop by but i dunno know ... i just found out that i became a part of the class because they have no representative from Philippines to teach the Ginataang Isda, a fish dish with coconut milk. After the cooking lecture... there was a presentation of introducing each countries ... i never have any preparation about Philippines .... because I thought i was only invited for a visit ... but since i was already there... i have no choice ... i also presented something about the Philippines and did some quizzes.
Lesson i got: anything goes... always be prepared ;-)
