Have a piece of heaven Karl Roy!

After celebrating my kid's 4th birthday yesterday and being thankful for his health unlike the freak accident he encountered last year on his 3rd birthday, I woke up and was shocked to find out that Karl Roy has passed away.
It was really hard to believe that he is gone... but knowing his health condition, there is a possibility that a heart problem could occur again. He has cheated death years ago by undergoing a heart surgery and now God might have said to Karl that  "your extension in life is long overdue". "It is time to have a piece of heaven". Some may have felt that he has turned his back on us...his fans...the music world...
but he is actually heading another road...and that is the after life...
don't worry because he has left a gift for all of us...and that is his voice...his music...his kindred spirit. He would always be watching over us..."hey karl! not all the time ok?" LOL
He was the voice of three great bands: Advent Call, Kapatid and my personal fave P.O.T. I have watched most of their shows when I was younger, but too bad I did not have pics of those moments...being dazed (or the S word) most of the time. He have given a glimpse of his life through his webcam-almost-daily-pics at Facebook...which was so funny...his transparency made him show who he really is to all kinds of people. Wake up Karl!
All the people I know who have met Karl Roy (may they be real friends or just acquaintances) have nothing bad to say about this person. He talks to everyone, never gets into a fight, always laid back and just basically nice. I am not a rockstar but I got a bad temper and sometimes a not-so-nice attitude...so please Karl, if you can hear me...teach me how to be more like you. 

I really love the song "Piece of This" because it hit me hard and it hit me double hard this time when I watched the video knowing Karl had passed away. I hate crying but the tears just poured down and after that I felt liberated knowing the tears I gave are worth it.


You have done a great job in this world and I wish I can also be remembered for something fruitful. For now, just chill and enjoy heaven...say hello to Annabel and Noel  :)

  3. I never heard of this guy but when I watched the video I felt your pain. His band is really dope! Too bad he died because I think they got the potential to become famous worldwide.

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.

Ingredients:

3 tomatoes chopped into medium pieces
1 white onion chopped into small pieces
2 salted red eggs (itlog na maalat/pula) ch…

Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce

Since Beef are more expensive than Pork, I end up buying Pork Steak rather than Beef Steak for lunch. I am going to share this easy recipe that both kids and adults would love called "Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce". There are two ways of preparing this dish: 
First: You can bread the pork steak, fry it and then cook the sauce separately before smothering them on the fried pork steak. 
Second: I chose this version because my kid have a hard time chewing meat so I need to make sure that the pork is really tender. Here is my simple recipe: 

Ingredients: 
1/2 kilo of Pork Steak (marinated in calamansi, soy sauce and pepper)
2 large onions (sliced thinly)
Instant Gravy (dissolved in water)
Pork drippings from the boiled pork
1 tablespoon butter

Procedure:

1. Add 1 cup of water on the marinated Pork Steak, then boil it for approximately 30 minutes or until the pork is tender. Make sure to check it from time to time to avoid the meat from getting dried up. Add water if needed.

2. Remo…
