Filipino Noodles and My Own Chicken Curry Dish

Cooking your own meals give you control as to how much you can cook, what kind of ingredients you will put in a dish and most of all, you can season it according to your taste. I do the cooking most of the time in our household and it is so inspiring that the people you’re feeding your cooked meals too will love it and exclaim, yummy.

I usually cook food in huge batches so it will last for a few days and not worrying about what to cook the next day. While freshly cooked foods are delicious, cooking in big batches save me energy and time in the kitchen. I am a huge noodle eater here and for that, I made myself this Filipino version of noodles with all the goodness of veggies and seasoning in it.

Bottom picture is a chicken and mushroom curry especially cooked for my husband. I don’t follow chicken curry recipes. I just cook with whatever’s available in our fridges. I have tried this dish a week ago and he said he liked it so I cooked him another batch of it this week. This time, I put some cubed white potatoes in it so it will stay longer in his stomach. It tastes really great and you know, white potatoes are usually tasteless. But with curry and other stuff mixed with it, boy, I tell you… you would want to ask for more once you tasted my chicken/mushroom curry.

Calvin Eternity Now from Influenster

How nice it is to receive such a great perfume from Influenster? I wouldn’t say no to freebies like Calvin Klein Eternity Now for men and women samples, complimentary for testing purposes.

I love the women’s perfume. It is sweet and floral, the kind of scent I prefer to wear. The men’s perfume smells awesome too and my little brother would be happy to receive it. I cannot give it to my husband since he is not into perfumes.

Thank you so much Influenster for the freebies!

Fe Fit Women’s Workout Program

I’ve recently been back to walking and working out for my own benefit. After such a long break from working out due to out-of-the-country vacation, getting back to my usual routine is harder but I try my best to sweat and be active again despite of the busy mommy life these days.

I couldn’t be happier and grateful for receiving this Fe Fit Women’s Workout Program kit for free in exchange of my honest review about the product. I used to follow Jillian Michaels’ workout on youtube on my computer and it is hard to look at the small screen while you’re going to do your floor exercises. But with the dvds I got paired with a big screen t.v, exercising is way better.

I am getting into the third week of this program and I am loving it so far. I love all of the exercises they demonstrate which I can easily follow. The instructor is encouraging, fun and trendy too that makes me look forward to the next set of exercises. For just 30-minutes of calorie burning exercises, three times a week, I can truly say that it fits for me! Exercise DVDs include 7 fun fitness genres: •Cardio Circuit •Core •Lower Body •Upper Body •Total Body Toning •Barre and •Stretch Flow exercises.

I don’t aim of losing weight as I am happy of my weight right now nor becoming sexy. My goal is to keep my body toned especially my glutes and stomach in the weeks to come. This kit is a keeper and I imagine myself doing the exercises in months or years to come.

One happy customer here! If you want to read more about this program and want to buy yours, please buy it on Amazon for just $88.84 Prime.

… This is the kit I own, it’s pink and it means for women who want to be fit. The pink dots indicate the times and the kind of exercises I have done each week. I wish I can be active 6 days a week but obligations/chores keep me from doing it. (disc 7 was hidden in the case)

… I know it’s not appealing posting a sweaty photo of yourself but hey, it’s hardwork and it is something I am so proud of doing, so here I am in my sweaty face after doing 30-minute of barre.

Ensuring Productivity and Timeliness with Quality Parts

The food service industry plays a vital role in today’s busy job market. Regardless of their professions, people rely on food service professionals to keep them fed throughout the day. When you want to serve your clients on time each day without disappointing them, it is important that you also can rely on a business that will help you keep your own equipment in good repair. When you need parts like food service casters for your carts, you can find a wide variety that will perform as expected when you shop online.

When you select these parts, your top priority may be to ensure that the parts are easy to use and will not fail at inopportune times. You may expect your employees to put the casters on the carts and to keep them from wobbling or falling off during a normal shift. However, if the parts that you order are difficult to put onto a cart and not made with the highest quality, your employees may fail to live up to your expectations. Rather than risk such a delay in delivering food, you can instead find casters that will perform well in all kinds of conditions.

For example, if you serve cold or frozen food, your employees may be expected to take their carts into the deep freezer to stock up on supplies. If the casters on their carts are not suited for cold temperatures, the wheels could become stuck or fall off entirely. The employees may then have to carry the cart out and wait for another food service cart to arrive before they can deliver the food to your clients. Rather than risk this scenario, you may select casters that have been designed for use in very cold environments.

Likewise, you may want your carts to remain in use for days or even weeks at a time without needing servicing. You might lack the time to take off the casters to oil them and otherwise repair them. When you shop online, you can find parts that are made with durability in mind. You can serve your clients and keep your employees on task each day without having to risk downtime to make repairs or switch out casters on carts. All of the selections you would need for an ordinary shift can be found online. You can also call the company.

Victoria’s Secret Free Lingerie Travel Case

I go visit to my home country every two years and each time I travel, I kind of wish I had a decent case to put all my underwear in, this includes my bras. I hate the idea of my luggage are being thrown and harshly handled by baggage handlers at the airport and find out that my bras are squished and damaged. Aside from that, I dread the thought that my undies are exposed once a person who wants to open my luggage and it’s my undies that greet them first.

Now, I can rest easy as I finally got me a travel case intended for my lingerie only and here’s a bonus, it’s FREE from Victoria’s Secret! It pays to be a VIP member of this store. I used the coupon they sent me in the mail to get this one. Their only requirement is just to buy two full-priced bras which I did.

I don’t need new bras, I still got a few of them with tags in my drawers but I really believe I need the case so I must shop and spend money on bras, one for my sister, by the way. I don’t regret though for I had a $10 off a bra, free panties with purchase coupons and a $10 reward card from VS for using my store credit card in the past I used for this shopping trip.

I paid $46 total including tax for my items but hey, with that price… I think it’s really a good deal knowing that if I had to buy the travel case, it would’ve cost me $70. While swiping my VS card, I am also accumulating points to my account which will turn into a $ in the future. Deal, ain’t it?

that pretty black case I have been wanting to own… it could fit at least 5 bras and some little sexy things in a black zipped compartment.

…. as you can see photo below, there’s a special compartment for little panties that is not very visible once the case is opened. I like it that way because you know, nobody should see what style or size of undies you’re wearing. Not even a stranger should see it.

Quick Fix Bean Sprout with Tofu in Miso Soup

Eating without soup isn’t complete, it is so dry and it is not as filling as with soup including in my meal. That is how I grew up. My mother used to cook vegetable stew a lot in almost every meal we had. With that said, now that I am an adult, I am used to having soup in my plate and kind of doing the same thing to my girls.

There are times I get busy with other things and I feel like having soup, what I do is try to invent something quick to satisfy my stomach. Here’s one of those easy and quick-fix bean sprout with tofu in miso soup.

First, you boil some water or vegetable stock, when water boils, pour in the miso paste and garnish, put tofu in, wait one minute then follow the bean sprout, season with salt and a bit of ground black pepper to taste, turn off heat quickly to avoid overcooking the bean sprout. Serve hot and don’t forget to garnish with scallion or green onions. Voila!

Making soup doesn’t need to be fancy. Just make use of what you already have in your fridge or pantry.

99 Cents Signature Flip Flops from Goodwill

While most people are bragging about their expensive trips or latest gadgets, expensive purses, makeups or anything, I, on the other hand, is up to something else. I don’t have those expensive things to show off to the world but great finds anywhere. And that’s exactly what I am going to share here today.

Nike wedges and Calvin Klein I found in Goodwill today for only 99 cents each pair. I did not expect to pay them for that amount. Goodwill had their 50% entire purchase today and I did not miss the deal for I went there just before the store opened to ensure I get the good stuff before the others.

There are some pretty stuff I bought for half off GW price but the highlight of my shopping today are these two beautiful flip flops that are so cheaply priced. I am sure they are genuine for I am familiar the original store the owners bought them from, they’re from Macy’s. They are also unworn items, I looked at the soles and not a single mark or scratch that the flip flops are worn. It was purel luck I found the items before anyone got to them.

They are two inches bigger than my size but giving them to my little sister won’t hurt. I hope she likes them.

How to Resize Your Photo

Having already taken a photo, you may find later on that its dimensions aren’t what you wanted. Or, you may want to create a smaller or larger version of the photo for a specific purpose. Needless to say, the easiest way to accomplish this is by resizing your photo, but as you’ll find that can be a bit tricky if you’ve never done so in the past.

The key to resizing your photo is to decide on exactly how you want to resize them. Generally speaking, you have two areas that you should take into consideration to make the right choice:

  • Larger or smaller

When you make a photo larger or smaller, it will definitely affect the image. If you make it too large, it may appear pixelated, whereas if you make it too small then some details may become unclear and may require further editing so that the photo looks good in its new size.

  • Preserving aspect ratio

The aspect ratio is essentially the width and height ratio of the original photo. If it is altered then the image may appear ‘thinner’ or ‘fatter’ depending on how it is changed. To preserve the aspect ratio you should resize your photo as a percentage of the original, or use a custom size that preserves that original ratio.

Make no mistake there are other areas that you should look at as well when resizing a photo – including the format that you want to eventually save it as. If it is a large photo then you may very well want to save it in a format that will compress the file size so that it doesn’t end up consuming too much storage space.

The one thing that you’ll need to accomplish all of this however is the software that makes it possible. One of the best out there is definitely the Movavi Photo Batch. Not only will it act as an image resizer but it will also bring numerous other features to the table that will help make your life easier – such as being able to enhance the image quality, process multiple images at the same time, and rename files to organize them as well as flip or rotate photos as needed.

Not only that, but once you’re done you’ll be able to save your photo in whatever format is needed. In short – it will give you everything you need to resize your photos and make them look good.

Lightweight Training Kicks

When I saw this deal on Amazon last week, I did not hesitate to buy this pair for I know it will be comfortable. I read the reviews and everybody is saying how comfy, lightweight and how they liked the shoes. When they came in, I did not regret buying these for under $23, I got me a good pair of shoes that I can use walking on the trail. This is the sixth pair I have hoping to give me motivation in walking some more and burning excess calories in my abdomen.

I don’t need those high price shoes just like what most of you guys embrace, as long as the shoes are comfortable and very light to the feet, I’ll go for it. Running/training/walking shoes are far more attractive to me these days than fashionable high heels that to me are useless for I am not a party-kind of girl.

But when it comes to running shoes, man looking at them is like looking at a melted ice cream that makes me wanna lick and drool with it.

Relic Telecaster is a Beauty

Different people have different types and tastes when it comes to buying guitars. That is understandable, we were born different, no two individuals are like. So, with that said, some guitarists embrace more on the modern style or design while others, love this cute relic telecaster, specifically the the Fender Custom Classic Classic Relic S-1 Telecaster guitar because it is crafted with a thin-finished premium ash body. Fender equips the Custom Relix Tele with a 1-piece large C-shaped maple neck, a 9.5″ radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets, and Fender/Gotoh vintage style tuning machines.
