Many Firsts on a Saturday

It was the first of many things last Saturday...
It was my kid's first ride in a bus and he totally enjoyed seeing the big tv and having the aircon on top of his head....
It was his first time to hang out at the hotel....
He is everywhere...sitting on the table and chillin on the bed

Staying at the hotel won't be complete without taking a dip in the swimming pool...he had fun while my legs got tired bending to fit in the kiddie pool.....

Doing all of those got me hungry but I don't want to spend much money for food and decided to use the first voucher that I bought online....I paid 250 for 500 worth of food at cheesecake etc. My sister who is addicted to online shopping gave me 2 more vouchers so I chose sandwiches, pasta,rice and cakes so we can try them all....and guess what?

...I was disappointed

Maybe I have tasted better pastas, sandwiches and cakes that's  why I was not satisfied with it. Oh well, I shouldn't complain 'cos I got a good discount.
Can't wait to experience more first times....
Would it be a laid back trip to Jamaica or staying at the awesome underwater hotel in Fiji? 

It surely is nice to dream but whatever first time's gonna happen..make it a good one please :)

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Easy Beef Sukiyaki Recipe

I love Japanese food and one of my fave meals is Sukiyaki. My mom spent a lot of time making that dish when we were little so I thought it was difficult to make. She uses authentic ingredients which could only be seen in specialty sections in groceries or Japanese stores. With my desire to eat Beef Sukiyaki, I have made some research and used ingredients that can be found in regular groceries. Here is my easy and no sweat Beef Sukiyaki recipe. 


1/2 kilo Sukiyaki Beef Cut 
Chinese Cabbage "bok choy"(Fil: pechay) - sliced around 1-inch long

1 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons of sugar
dash of pepper
