with the ham in mind, I finally bought an oven.. you see, Noche Buena Ham will never be that deliciously glistening without a few minutes exposure to the oven.. and I do not want to rob myself with that deliciously glistening moment..
Say hello to my 35L capacity oven:
Where did I bought? Quiapo, of course! (jusme, kahit yata bigyan ako ng isang milyon eh mauubos ko lahat sa Quiapo.. hangdameng pedeng bilhin!!!) got the oven at New Sin Kian Heng Quiapo for 2700 PhP..you can find any cook ware you can imagine, teh, pati talyasi meron sila! (sarap mag pancit!) and a few blocks from New Sin Kian Heng, you can find the store for baking supplies. Yan ang hirap sa Quiapo eh, uubusin talaga ang pera mo!
New Sin Kian Heng is located at 196 C PALANCA SR ST, QUIAPO.. easier instruction.. go to Quiapo Church’s main entrance..the road in front of the church is Villalobos.. go straight to that street.. straight.. straight.. until dead end, which is Carlos Palanca road, go a bit right and you will see New Sin Kian Heng (malaki ung signage nila, hindi mo mami-miss promise). Just a warning, judging from our experience today, the atmosphere on the said store spells B.U.S.Y..spare yourself of having to deal with irate saleslady, make sure you already have a list of what you want to buy before going there.
Now, for the what have I gotten myself into? part…
I have told you not just once that baking is not my kind of tea.. I just cannot deal with dough and the grandness that comes with it.. (baka maiyak ako pag nakapag bake ako kahit pandesal haha).. this is a big step.. yes, we will welcome 2013 with dough! Where’s the confetti?
But it dawned to me… I don’t have baking wares! what the!?! as I consult Mr Walmart, I found so many nice wares that I want to buy! And the list starts with a Kitchen Aide mixer! argh!!!!
Baking wares aside (and the price tags that comes with it)..this big step, hopefully, turns to be an exciting and rewarding experience for me, as well as for my kids..
