The best voucher deal at Barrio Fiesta

When I saw the voucher deal at metrodeal about Barrio Fiesta that says...
P490 instead of P1005 for a Delicious Whole Chicken & Seafood Paella Rice and 1.5L Coke at Barrio Fiesta Good for 4 People
I was tempted to buy one so I clicked it even if I still don't have money yet because the deadline for the payment is around 2 days before my payday. When I checked it online again, I saw that it was extended so I was lucky to get a voucher! This is meant for me!

I used it to treat my mom on her birthday and I didn't reveal it to her until the last minute. She was worried as to how I would treat her because she knows money is kinda tight for me lately but I wanted to surprise her. She invited over a close friend so the food was really too much for us since it is good for 4 and the fourth person is my 3-year old. 

The chicken can pass as a Max's Fried Chicken if only they would have used Jufran ketchup but its good enough.
When I saw the seafood paella, I was ecstatic because the serving was big and there are lots of seafoods on top. I was expecting more of rice rather than seafoods but they are pretty equal. 
It was good but a little dry. I prefer the kind of paella that is sticky and tasty with a little oil drippings. For the drinks, we got a litro of coke which we never finished cos were not huge coke drinkers.
I checked the price for each meal and it was 400 plus each so it is like buying one meal for another meal which is worth it! A lot of people used that voucher that day and all of them seem satisfied. 
THANK GOD for vouchers, people who have a tight budget can still celebrate and eat good food!

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
2 Medium-sized Carrots - cut in thin slices
Onion Leeks - cut around 1-inch long

2 tablespoons of grated ginger
1 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons of sugar
dash of pepper
