    That might explain where she got the idea.

    Last time we went to Manila we stayed near Mall of Asia and there was a lovely breakfast place we went to. Rice with the egg on top and corned beef. This has now become her own speciality.

    The only thing Ana ever studied was how to improve her English, that kind of worked but 'can' still means 'cannot' (interchangeable both verbally and in written form so you can't ever tell) amongst many other mind numbing communication issues, cooking she taught herself in her early to mid twenties and credit where credit is due she's not bad but not as good as her mother.

    I was sceptical to be honest, but am surprised by how simple they are to use, clean compact and versatile. Let the Filipino food experiments commence!

    yes ours says if doing oven chips no oil, but if doing real chips then brush the chips with oil before frying, we hardly ever buy frozen food so it will be real potato chips going in

    Yes it says no oil for frozen oven chips, but we hardly buy any frozen food, so it will be real potato chips(they say brush with oil) before frying,we are yet to try. Fairly relaxed that the fryer was made in China!
