How to Make a Tender Filipino Style Chicken Barbecue

Summer is barbecue season and it’s undeniable barbecue tastes really good especially when shared with friends by the pool or lake. Or just being in the backyard with family, it’s like the perfect thing to do. But, getting the right tenderness and taste of the barbecue can be challenging at times. Most people usually overcooked their meat or worse, it is so dry that it is so tough to chew.

Here’s my Filipino style chicken barbecue that is so tender and has a taste of home. By doing this, it takes me back to the Philippines where street food like barbecue is popular among Filipinos. How I made my barbecue so tender? Follow the steps below.

1. Cut up chicken breasts into cube size, fatty part removed.
2. For one big tray, use a can or a bottle of Sprite. Marinate and refrigerate all night.
3. Throw out the Sprite and try to drain as much as possible and then put seasoning like ground black pepper, soy sauce, whole lemon squeezed juice and vinegar, minced garlic and a sprinkle of magic sarap if available.
4. While on the grill, slowly brush with marinated sauce to keep it from drying. Flip over, another brush of its sauce.
5. When almost done, brush with tomato ketchup with a little bit of avocado oil. I prefer this oil because it’s healthy than the usual cooking oil.
6. Serve hot and enjoy!

She wants to Play Violin

On our way to the baby shower yesterday, my first born open up to her daddy that she wants to learn how to play violin and the daddy answered, right, that’s the instrument we don’t have. What we have are two ukelele and an adult size guitar which he bought in the Philippines 11 years ago on his first visit to me in my country. She wants a violin, then fine. Not a problem. I can just easily search for used in good condition violin on guitarcnter.com. I have known this site for quite sometime now and yes, they always have great discounts on any musical instrument or accessories you might need.

I Earned $100 Just by Sharing Ads on Twitter

I am a stay-at-home mom for over ten years now. Knowing I have not tried having a real job outside our home, you might think, I am being lazy. That is not the case. My husband is the only one who works for our family but we are doing pretty good, financial wise. I stay home this long because we got two girls to take care of and that to me is far more important than juggling being a mom and having a job. Seeing them grow and witness every milestone they achieved is such a privilege.

Anyway, let’s go to the topic why I am writing this entry today. Because, even though I am staying home, I have ways to earn a little bit of money while on my computer.

You guys ever heard of AdvoWire? I have been a member of this content/ads sharing site since December 2014 but did not really get serious with it until last year. For months of diligently sharing media contents on Twitter (my preferred social media), I have earned a $100.80 for it. Twice a day I am allowed to share contents with points which will then converted into monetary amount when the time is right.

I would suggest you should do it too especially if you are staying home to earn extra.

~~ Once you share one time, don’t forget to get back to AdvoWire after 8 hours for another share. That’s it, then wait until your points accumulate for withdrawal.

Low-carb Alcoholic Mixers

Many people today are concerned about getting into and staying in shape. Diet and exercise always play a major role in maintaining a healthy weight. However, most people enjoy an occasional treat, and low carb alcoholic mixers are one way to enjoy a treat while losing weight.

Hydration Mixers Make a Difference

Hydration mixers offer the benefits of a low-carb option while allowing you to stay well-hydrated, a perfect way to treat yourself after a workout. Soda and tonic mixers are the perfect backgrounds for beverages of all flavors. Citrus and cranberry pomegranate also provide great flavor variety.

Selecting Low-Carb Alcohol

Many people are pleasantly surprised to learn that unflavored alcohol is usually already low-carb. Some of these alcoholic beverages have other benefits, such as antioxidant levels that surpass those of red wine. Cognac, brandy, bourbon, whiskey aged in barrels and agave tequila are all good examples of alcoholic beverages with additional benefits.

A Way to Enjoy Mojitos

Mojitos have rapidly become a popular drink, and many who are dieting have concerns about whether they can enjoy this Latino favorite to the fullest. Citrus-flavored hydration beverages are good mixers to use in this drink that provides a little extra kick. Mix with lime juice, fresh mint, and a jigger of rum for a bold flavor.

A Tasty Gin and Tonic Option

Gin and tonic drinks are very popular with those who want a simple beverage when they enjoy a drink. Low-carb tonic is a perfect way to enjoy this treat with gin that’s already low in carbs. Add ice and lemon or lime juice, and you’re good to go.

Yummy Wine Spritzers

Wine doesn’t have to be out of reach when you’re on a low-carb diet. A spritzer lets you enjoy your favorite wine, mixed with a little soda to cut down on both the carbs and the alcohol. Regardless of the flavor of the wine, you can mix it with no-carb soda for a subtle flavor. Consider citrus drinks for white fruit wines or cranberry pomegranate for sweet reds.

Knowing that you can indulge in a cocktail from time to time is one good way to stay on track with dieting. There are so many options to use that you won’t feel needlessly confined.

How I Got 2 Victoria’s Secret Free Full Size Bottle Perfumes

If you frequent in this blog, you would know that I am a big Victoria’s Secret shopper. You would also know the reasons why as I keep writing them over and over again.

It’s the only store I buy my bras, perfumes/mists and lotions, and other stuff from. Last week, I was able to avail their glitch online. Buy 2 sport bras for $29.50 each and entered the promos “EDP4FREE” and the other one I forgot for free shipping. I paid $63 plus including tax and received my two full size bottle of perfumes that would have cost me $110 if I were to buy them in full price. Not only that, I also received .53 cents from Ebates cashback for shopping through their site before checking out Victoria’s Secret site.

I love the new collection of VS sport bra, small size fits me perfectly and the material they used is decent enough to last for long.

2 sport bras and two full size bottle of perfume do not come by often so when I saw it, I did not hesitate to avail the glitch. It’s something that I would always go for when it happens because you would pay more if you were to do this in store.

Besides, free perfume and free shipping codes often are not stackable codes if not for the glitch.

SALT Pepper Spray Gun the Simplest and Easiest to Handle

For your information SALT Pepper Spray Gun, round and accessory is manufactured here in the Midwest by their manufacturing partner, Tippmann, the number one most trusted name in air powered technology.

I love the idea I now own this SALT gun. It somehow puts my mind at ease that I can grab this without the fear of killing someone. It is so simple to figure out how to put it to safety and make it ready to fire with those buttons with marks on each side. I actually find it easy to use especially taking the magazine out and load it with pepper spray rounds. What I like about this gun is that it is so light and it does not require much energy to lift and aim it to the target.

This is a great gun especially for people who live in the country to be used for barking dogs outside your door or for wild animals that threaten to attack you or your children. Since it is a quiet gun, it does not make a loud commotion and scare those harmless animals.

However, I will not claim it to be a self defense weapon. I don’t think that it can replace or is a good alternative for real guns because when shit happens, the only life it saves is the intruder’s not mine or my family’s life. Because, what if the intruder has a real gun and all I have is this SALT gun that would only injure the person? Most of the time, when someone kicks on your door, you only have to show your gun and not necessarily fire or use it, this is just to scare the person then they would run away seeing you have a “real” gun in your hands.

Like I said above, this is good for animals. As a wife of a law enforcement officer, I believe only real guns can provide me and my family utmost safety when the need arises.

If you are interested in finding out more about this SALT Pepper spray gun and want to buy yours, you can buy it on AMAZON.

I received this product for free in exchange of my unbiased and honest opinion. All opinions are 100% mine.

Try This Swissvita Eye Lift Cream on Amazon

I love trying out new beauty products that are available on the market today. I am 32 and of course, I want to look and feeling good inside out. As for my facial care, I try to consistently use anti-aging serum, facial moisturizer and this one, eye lift cream that is water-based and most of all, paraben-free.

It may not reverse the little fine lines I already have around my eyes but at least it can delay the process of aging. A small pea-size of this cream to use everyday is good to treat both of my under eyes to slowly vanish dark circles too although I seldom get dark circles. I trust that this product does not use harmful chemicals because it has light color and has no smell at all. I have been enjoying using a small amount of this product now and will continue to do so until I use up in the squeeze tube.

I put this on first then followed with the usual beauty regimen I have and they mix fine. Dries up quickly and truly I feel that tightening of my under-eye skin after a couple of seconds being applied.

I encourage everyone to try this out and experience this product has to offer you, buy it on AMAZON for $30.

I am glad I got to try this product for free in exchange of my unbiased review. All opinions are 100%.

The Revlon Mascara Craze

So everybody in the couponing groups are posting their Revlon mascara haul from Target, Walmart and CVS. I am sharing mine here too. I only printed ten coupons from smartsource and made sure to use them all today as they are only good for today.

I did try the first CVS store I went to this morning but failed. The cashier couldn’t accept more than one coupon because she thought they were copied coupons while they’re not. Revlon allowed me to print two copies each browser and I used two computers!

Gladly, the second CVS store store I went to accepted all four $5 manufacturer coupons, combined that with $4 off of $20 purchase Revlon products. Deal this week is buy one $8.79 get one 50% off, I paid out of pocket $2.76 including tax.

The six remaining coupons were used in Walmart, their current price is $5.97 so, ended up paying just 97 cents each mascara. Happy shopper here.

I know I can’t use them all as I still have old mascaras from how many months ago I don’t know… but my friends, cousins and relatives in the Philippines can use them.
