My Kid's Friday Night Date at Pancake House

It was supposed to be just me and my close friend meeting up on a Friday night, but my kid overheard me leaving and wanted to tag along. Since he has no school the next day, then I gave in to his plead. We met up with the godmother of my son at Wilcon City Center along Visayas Avenue since that is near our place. My kid only had a few rides/games at the jampacked arcade because it was very chaotic there...both kids and even adults were kinda wild. My friend suggested Pancake House and it was a relief for me because the restaurant was not full and we sat in a nice corner. The waitress gave my kid some colors and an activity sheet. Knowing my kid, he only colored a few and got lazy again...LOL. 
Each time I ask him to write his name, he ignores me or won't do it. He only writes his name if he wanted to show off...and he did that night to impress his Godmother. So proud of you boy!
Since we already had dinner, I ordered Spaghetti with Meat Sauce which can be seen at the Kid's Menu. It was worth P165 and the serving was huge with two slices of toasted garlic bread. The spaghetti was not that sweet and I enjoyed the beefiness of its sauce topped with grated cheese. The bread was toasted perfectly and tasted good as well. 
My friend ordered Spaghetti Club Special Set which is worth P216. It is a platter of spaghetti and 2 slices of clubhouse sandwich served with soup and iced tea. She was already full so she asked me to eat one slice of the sandwich. It was delicious and has chicken, bacon and veggies in it. 
I ordered Mango Crepe with ice cream for dessert, but they were out of it...so I just ordered a scoop of vanilla ice cream for my kid. It tasted like guess what? Vanilla..LOL. No need to make a review of this except that for around P50, I think it is too much for a scoop of ice cream...maybe if its a special kind of ice cream like with nuts or chocolate bits.
Pancake House is really perfect for the whole family because their menu selection caters to everyone...ranging from toddlers to senior citizens. They also have their own restroom, which was clean and very spacious... ideal for those with limited mobility. If you are planning to eat here, make sure to prepare paying around P250 to P300 per person because of the tax and service charge. If you don't eat much, then you can just share a special set to save up.

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…
