I only say fish is better than tinolang manok after a friend shows me the now elusive video on facebook tungkol sa lalaking gumahasa sa kawawang tandang na manok. Dafaq.

You'll need the following hardware:
- Hot pot cooker ($40+ from T&T);
- Propane gas ($5 for a 4-pack);
You can serve a variety of foods including:
- Ready-made specifically for hot pot like shrimp or fish paste balls. T&T has a lot of these;
- Chicken or beef soup stock. Make sure your broth has a lot of water because you'll find that the water evaporates quickly;
- Seafood like shrimps and mussels.
- Mushrooms. Cut these in halves or quarters. The Shiitake mushroom sprouts are very popular;
- Greens, like spinach, radish, or lettuce. These cook very quickly so don't let it soak too long.
- Hot sauce.
That's it. Great for 4-6 guests or the maximum number of people you can fit seated around your dinner table.

It's not really 'brain' food but the reference comes from me having to stay up late the other night to watch Season3-Episode 8 of the Walking Dead. Great show and almost missed my bus the next morning because my smartphone alarm clock ringtone just didn't cut it. I thought I would try out the Walking Dead ringtone instead to see if it's any better. Who wouldn't wake up instantly to the zombie apocalypse theme song with thoughts of the undead clawing at you and dragging you out of bed, right?
Here is a link to the theme song ringtone. Enjoy!

To balance out all this healthy foods, have some sisig for pulutan, or snacks for the beer drinkers. Sisig is made up of pig ears browned in a barbeque and chopped into tiny squares. Mix with diced onions, salt+pepper, etc and you've got yourself a necessary accompaniment to karaoke. However, make sure you let people know what is in sisig first because you just never know, and go easy on the whisky and coke.

saging' (sweet rice wrapped in banana leaves) because the winnowing
basket is hard to find here in Vancouver, BC. Many customers ask for
'suman sa bilao' just because of the winnowing basket.
Just like suman wrapped in banana leaves, you would spread sweet rice
evenly on a bilao lined with banana leaves and then add caramelized
