Having a Sweet Life at Discovery Suites

Having a vacation can be stressful at times ...the hassle of packing things, traveling far, traffic and unpacking. That's why more people choose to spend their weekends at the hotel which is more convenient and stress-free. There are lots of online discount deals now giving up to 50% off on hotel room rates, which means that the market for that is increasing. If I got the moolah then I would definitely get a voucher because hotel life is really sweet! My sister invited me, my kid and mom at Discovery Suites because she got a free overnight stay there. Maybe  this was a freebie from booking a 3-bedroom suite and 2-bedroom suite for my niece's debut last year. Discovery Suite has a great location being situated right in the heart of Ortigas Center. Just across Podium Mall and ADB. St. Francis Square, Robinsons Galleria and SM Megamall are just a few steps away from the hotel. So if you get bored, there are lots of things you can do nearby like shop, watch a movie, play billiards, bowling, etc. 
My sis was supposed to stay in a 2-bedroom suite, but was lucky to get an upgrade to a  3-bedroom suite...isn't that SWEET?
There is a room with a queen-size bed, a room with a single bed and a room with two beds. 
The master bedroom have its own bathroom while the single and two-bed rooms share a bathroom.
There is no bathtub in the shared bathroom which sucks because my kid hate using the shower...LOL. Anyone would feel at home in this suite because it has its own dining area, a kitchen with refrigerator, coffeemaker and microwave, a living room and even a small work desk. There's FREE Wi-Fi too!
Oh yes! Enjoy the view from the room...
And the highlight of our short but sweet stay there is the swimming area which has a freezing cold pool and a warm jacuzzi.
Since there is no kiddie pool, most of the kids stay at the jacuzzi plus the water there is warm unlike the big pool...It was just funny seeing a huge muscular guy dip in the small jacuzzi with those kids...he gets splattered with water all over his face..LOL! 
I hope they give big discounts at Discovery Suites soon! Calling all discount deals websites.

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…
