Chinese cooking - China kitchen tricks and terms

CHINA cooking and Chinese food Menu

Who has not come across this. You sit in a Chinese restaurant, entertaining your guests or family, but you are lost. Lost for words, lost what to say, lost what to order.

Sure, we all do it : 'Looking at the neighbor's table and see what they have ordered.'

Next, most embarrassing moment : 'We want the same dish as our neighbor', by the way: 'What are they eating' ?

Of course there are alternatives. We ask our companion to order for us. Or we ask a friend. We can always look somewhat stupid.

Especially if business colleagues accompany us.

Years ago I was in the same position. Not anymore, I found a great way to order food, pronouncing the names in its correct way.

It doesn't go unnoticed is all I can say.

- 16th Oct. 2011 Rescue workers have reinforced make-shift walls and sand-bags around Bangkok as the city faces an onslaught of floodwater. Thailand has experienced the worst floods in half a century with almost a third of the country now swamped. Over 297 people have been killed and the damage bill is at $3 billion. Now low-lying areas of the capital are at risk of water swells from the Chao Phraya river and a wall of northern run-off water. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has offered reassurance for Bangkok's 12 million people saying the city is well fortified.

Happy Kadayawan 2010

I'm two days late from the start of the Kadayawan Festivalcelebration. It started the other day until on the 22nd, Sunday. Unfortunately, time didn't permit me to go back to my hometown. But anyway, I can still witness the festival through live video streaming and website updates here on the Net. So to contribute some updates I might as well give you some information about this great annual festival in Davao.

Kadayawan is derived from the word Madayaw, which means in Davaoeno, something good, right, positive, productive, beautiful, great, or awesome--in layman's term. So if Madayaw is an adjective, Kadayawan is a noun, as in goodness or righteousness.

Kadayawan began in 1986 with a different name: Apo Duwaling. It was a part of the government's initiative to unite all Davaoenos and to declare Davao as the most peaceful and most liveable city in the country. This was after the EDSA Revolution in 1986.

"Apo Duwaling" was once a festival of flowers, fruits, and people dancing on the streets. "Apo" is named after the highest peak in the Philippines which is the Mt. Apo. Duwaling is a shortcut for "Du" as in Durian, a delectable fruit abundant in Davao, and "Waling" asWaling-Waling, Davao's proud flower. That is why it was called Apo Duwaling.

It was in 1988 when Mayor Rodrigo Duterte changed the name from "Apo Duwaling" to "Kadayawan sa Dabaw." Up until now, the same festival of flowers and fruits parade and street dancing called "Indak Indak sa Kadalanan" are still practiced yearly. Now, theKadayawan Festival 2010 is called as K10, short for Kadayawan 2010.
