Vice President Leni Robredo took a break from preparing for her presidential run, appearing on vloger Mimiyuuuh's YouTube to channel to share tips on how to cook essential lugaw and some life skills for Gen Z to power through the pandemic.

What is happines? It's relative, Robredo said, adding, it's "how do you make a bad siotuation good".

Finally, what the secret to essential lugaw? Sautee the onions before adding the garlic to avoid it getting burnt. Brown the chicken pieces in the sautee pan for more depth in flavor. Use both regular and sticky rice for a thick porridge. Adjust to your taste with patis and calamansi.

Robredo's critics have used "Leni Lugaw" as a pejorative which she embraced as a hat tip to her grassroots background.
