I Should Be Happy With My New Diet!

>> Thursday, August 23, 2012



Nope. I am not trying to show off food that I had today. No No! These are just some of the images of previous food we prepared or have bought out that I kinda miss now.. 

 These are the ordinary foods that we usually have in my household and when we go out.. 
 But I can't buy any of them for now because I am in the quest of lowering my blood pressure. 
Nothing fatty or heavenly if I do not hit that nornal bp yet. Not according to the doctor who is assigned to sign our medical requirements.. Urgh!
 No hot chocolate or cookie or even coffee.. haayzt!
No yummy desserts but fruits only are allowed. Which is actually good,. But I am missing my chocolate heaven.. 
 No deep fried food.. Not even seafood.. 
 No cheesy dishes.. no pizza, no pasta!
 No fries.. 
 I think I am dying, hahahaha.. Patience.. Faith.. and the reward later will be.. hahahaha.. 
 Seriously, I have been pork free for a week now.. 
 Not even my favorite Lechon Manok.. 

All we have now are the healthy stuff.. Fish, fish and more fish.. vegetables and fruits..  I Should Be Happy With My New Diet!

Longgan



I was able to try Longgans in Singapore and I loved them. They are actually my grandma's favorite that whenever we visit her in my uncle's other house, we would buy Longgans for her. 

 In case you are wondering how it tastes, well, it's like eating a not so sweet Lychee.. At least to me, that is. 
 Lili loved playing with the seeds after.. hahaha.. 
 Seriously, when the seeds get cleaned, they can be used as counting tools, if not planted. 

I am happy to find Longgans in the supermarket. And they aren't as pricey as the Dragon Fruit here..

Can't Get Enough of Ultimate Chocolate

>> Wednesday, August 22, 2012



Last week, before I had my medical, we indulged in this baby.. Red Ribbon's newest cake, the Ultimate Chocolate Cake by Red Ribbon. 


As much as I want to buy another cake this week, I can't. Instead, I have to indulge in garlic and Chayote, until my blood pressure goes down to normal. If this job is not as important as I deem it to be, I wouldn't take sacrifices so seriously, especially this yummy cake that I have been craving for... 

Till next time Ultimate Chocolate.. I have to be a good girl until bp goes down, har.. har.. har..

Cooking Up A Kiddie Event

What will you be doing this semestral break? I know it is just too early to think about the short vacation, and students are yet having their first quarter examinations or midterms for those in college. This October or November, I am hoping to push through with a kiddie or junior blogger event where one of my usual sponsors, a wholesale candy company is willing to sponsor. No mentioning of would be sponsors yet, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that all of them will join me and my group for the semestral break event. If that is going to push through, I am going to have cup cakes for free, some goodies bags filled with candies and toothbrushes, plus some insect repellent lotions, powders and colognes and many others. But I am excited for the candy company because it will be their first time to partner with me. I am also excited for the event itself because it will be my first time to do an event. In the previous endeavors, I only had online contests, and of course, some outreach projects tied up with my other organizations. In short, this will be the first time that it will be a physical event and it will solely be mine.

Another Tita Fannies Branch

>> Sunday, August 19, 2012

We were invited to attend the grand opening of the newest branch of Tita Fannies last August 15, 2012 and we were delighted to see that the Xavier University-Divisoria Branch is spacious and could accommodate lots of patrons.

The staff were busy with the guests and customers.. 
We were entertained by a local singer with the same last name as mine.. And after our early lunch, we had photos taken with the manager and the owner, plus the marketing officer.. 

Just like all other branches of Tita Fannies, they have the Liempo de Lechon that is their signature dish, as well as all the other food that you can find at their other branches. From Lechon Manok to desserts, to sea foods.  Below were the food they served us.. 





 The Lumpia Shanghai is my new favorite..

Thanks Richard Celeste for the invitation..

The New Job

I have been busy these past few days because of my medical examinations as well as the compilation of documents as requirements for my new line of work come September. This online worker will now be a permanent teacher at the Department of Education. It's gonna be back to the classroom for me, with high school students and no longer deal with criminal background check easybackgrounds, cooking demos and writing articles for websites. Although the three will still be part of my online life, as much as cooking and cleaning the house will still be part of my chores at home, still, I will have less of them than the classroom gigs and lessons that I shall be doing for the next couple of months. I am sure it will be different, and I may have less time for invitations. But still, I am happy because I will have the opportunity to help kids with problems in school. That is after all, my lifelong wish and vocation.
