Actor Jericho Rosales and Ryan Manalo have been buddies since they were toddlers. They used to be teks, holen & goma playmates. As youngters, they were even roommates. They have been separated only a few times in their lives; like when Jericho's grandma took him to the province.

Their teenage years were a lof of fun. Although Ryan is two years older than Jericho, they treat themselves equal level. Ryan was 16 and Jing (Jericho's nickname) was 14 when they worked as "mag-iisda" in Concepcion, Marikina market. Jericho shared the thrill of the experience. He bragged being a pro at selling fish. Ryan's grandmother was the stall owner and that's how they got the part-time work.

At their young age, fish vending was an adventure, an escapade. It must be this sense of shared adventure that has made Jericho & Ryan as cookign buddies. SInce they have to eat together, they had to learn to cook together. Just expected, they developed their own recipes.



*6 to 10 pieces of sugpo
*1 can coconut milk, pure
*2 cloves of garlic
*10 slices of ginger cut into julienne strips
*half can of mushroom or pieces of young corn
*red green pepper cut into slices
*asparagus and arorot tubes

Saute garlic, ginger and red pepper in a small amount of vegetable oil. Once the garlic turns brownish, add the mushrooms or young corn. Pour the coconut milk and allow it to boil. Put a small amount of sili according to how hot you'd like the dish to be. Add the sugpo, asparagus and arorot. Sprinkle a pinch of salt, simmer it for 20 minutes, then serve.

Thanks to Len Llanes and StarStudio mag.

I am looking forward to watch Jericho and Kristine Hermosa on T.V. for their upcoming comeback teleserye, "DAHIL MAY ISANG IKAW".
