Mr. Nicholas, with his post: Smoked Salmon and Spinach Salad, on his site, Intelliblog.

This is perfect after all that feasting the past couple of days! If you want to know how Mr. Nicholas made this easy and  nutritious salad, then I suggest you go and click the shot above!

This week's post is something that I tried making for the first time: Tofu Gising-Gising (which literally means Tofu Wake-Up Wake-Up). LOL. I know, it sounds weird.


  • Tofu (firm preferred, diced/cubed)
  • Coconut milk
  • Chili (pith and seeds removed to lessen the heat)
  • onion and garlic (diced)
  • salt, pepper, fish sauce (optional)
  • oil for frying


  • Fry the tofu, then set aside. Remove excess oil (leave about two tablespoons for sauteeing). Add onion, garlic, and chili. Mix every now and then; don't burn.
  • Next add the fried tofu, then dump in the coconut milk.
  • Simmer for around five minutes then adjust the seasoning.
  • Remove from fire once satisfied.
  • Yummy when eaten warm.

It was a bit spicy, but really manageable since I took out all the pith and seeds. Ok, a few were stubborn. :P I liked it! There are different variations... some use meat (usually pork or chicken) instead of tofu. We had tofu to spare, so we used that. :)

Please don't forget to add a link back to this site (you can get the buttons here; deciding to use text instead of buttons is fine also) to be able to add your posts below. Many thanks and hope everyone is going to have a great time this weekend!
