Roasted Chicken

Today is a lazy day. We are just at home playing with the kids and me and hubby, the usual stuff of movie marathon.

We went to RFC this afternoon to buy our weekly food and since we were with the kids, the push cart was full of their stuff and we were told its for their store.

Anyway, our lunch for today is a roasted chicken from Manok ni San Pedro.


Dining Sets

When we moved to this new house, the old furnitures of the landlord were left as the other house where she wanted to place them was not available at the time of our moval. So basically, some of our furnitures cannot be moved in this house so we stored them in the warehouse. Its also better as the house now is small and we have furnitures requires a big space.

Some of the dining chairs are broken and I asked some guys from the warehouse to repair them. Now its in working condition but I need to replace the table cloth as it was like this since we arrived. Or maybe I will just wait for sale items at SM Bacoor.

Dried Fish

Do you like dried fish? We call dried fish in Tagalog "tuyo" and in Visayan "buwad" or "bulad" depending on your location either in Visayas or Mindanao.

Anyway, this photo is taken at a Korean public market. This is how their dried fish is displayed. Thats we cant help it but stop and take a photo - yes for souvenir. :)

Its always nice to travel to other country as you can see how they live and the way the eat.

Ginger Beer

Hubby is currently in the canteen as he was invited by a friend in their shooting club for a drink. After sending us home, he came back and so here I am in my mini-office trying to blog about our previous activities.

Chedeng is arriving and is already pouring so much rain around our area. Its cold and I am in the mood for drinking. I looked at the fridge and saw this Angus O'Neil's Ginger Beer. I was curious about this beer as it says ginger..

The taste is kind of gingery.. and a little bit sweet.. a different taste! I am sure some of my lady friends will love this as it is not bitter at all.

Angus O'neil's is made in Australia. Named after the son of Frederick O'Neil who commenced bottling table ales in North Fitzroy. Its a family business he founded in 1840.

Korean Kimchi

Kimchi is one of the delicacies of korean food. Everytime Koreans eat, one of the variand in the table is always kimchi. There seems to be many kinds of kimchi. I should know because the wife of my boss is a Korean and everytime she comes here in the Philippines or we visit her in Germany, kimchi is always present in her fridge.

For that matter, I am kind of used to eating the korean way. When we went to Korea last year, we would always eat at traditional Korean restaurant and I say - its really difficult to sit in the floor. I mean with this kind of tummy now, hey, its difficult. I cant fold it!! lol

Anyway, while we were in Seoul, after a series of meetings and factory visits, we wanted to relax on our own and just walked along the busy streetrs of Seoul. Then our feet sent us to a market.. these photos are actually taken at a public market.

Chinese Traditional Food

My hubby went to Beijing last year to visit one of our buyer. He was invited for a dinner at a traditional chinese restaurant.

These were the foods served. He said that these are the traditional cooking of Chinese. That I cant confirm as I am not a Chinese.

The meat here looks so appetizing. Hubby said it was delicious.

Afternoon Snack

I was surprised one afternoon after a stressful day in the office when my kids showed me their snacks prepared in school.

These are the ingredients I bought for their Ham Sandwich:

  • 1/4 kl cooked ham

  • 1 pc spring onion

  • 1 tbsp white sugar

  • Gardenia load bread

  • 1 tbsp salt

  • 220 ml mayonnaise

  • sandwich bag


The sandwich was manually prepared by the kids while the teacher was looking. This is according to their yaya who also get to learn as together with other yayas also watched the activity.
