Only Filipinos can relate how much we love dining in Jollibee. Wherever we may be in the world, we would always crave for that Pinoy taste only Jollibee can make. So here we are in Texas, we only have one Jollibee franchise here in Houston. And that is four hours away from where we live.
You see, going to Jollibee is a treat for us no matter how far it is, we are eager to drive to go there because it satisfies our cravings. Being on the road for four hours was nothing because of the anticipation that what we’re getting after such a long trip is heavenly.
An added bonus is that, Red Ribbon and two other stores are adjacent to Jollibee which made it very convenient for us. We brought home lots of goodies from JB and Red Ribbon. If money was not an issue, I could have bought the entire Red Ribbon stocks and re-sell it from here, just kidding! Anyway, chicken joy and gravy was my order and a taro boba. It filled me up, made my tummy happy and most of all, I had a lot of fun during the road trip. If we have to do it again, I will not say no!
As you may have known, I am or have been reviewing products since 2008. Either paid or receiving free items, I am willing to do it. I have countless reviews over the years and I must say, I have become better at what I am doing.
Doing the thing I love most somehow gives me skills and knowledge to properly examine the products that the seller or advertisers entrusted me to do. Some weren’t happy of the feedback or review I gave them but then, honesty is all I can give when it comes to reviewing their products for the sake of their prospect buyers/customers. Because, I myself, would rely on other/previous customers’ feedback if I were to buy something that cost a tremendous amount of money.
One of the perks of being a reviewer is that the free items you actually get that you love to use or wear. Example is this boy shorts swim with matching strappy bra top and a cover up. It is a stylish set that has a beautiful pattern that I chose for myself.
I was not disappointed for it fits right, hugs my body and yes, I am comfortable with it. You see, I got to pick the style I want, color or design and all it takes is my honest review after testing the product. I hope I made the seller happy with it.
I only had a little time to rest today before cooking for dinner, I took my girls to the pool and came back at almost 3 o’clock. Took a shower, laid down a little bit and did my mommy duty in the kitchen.
Anwyay, I planned of making my family some angel hair pasta tonight, so even if I was a bit tired, I had to make it. I did not follow any recipe. I just made up my own, bought a jar of Ragu Cheese Creations Classic Sauce and that’s it! It is tasty and sure is filling in my stomach. Now that the new Italian study says eating pasta does not contribute to BMI, might as well, cook pasta a lot and serve to the family.
With my pasta, I used the following;
Half a box of store brand pasta
two regular size roma tomatoes
a jar of Ragu sauce
a whole flower of broccoli (cut up)
4 tsp. avocado oil (you can use any oil of your choice)
5 cloves minced parsley for garnishing
a tbsp of sea salt
half a teaspoon black ground pepper
cut up chicken meat ( guessing the amount of chicken, no exact measurement or weight how much I used)
Boil 5 cups of water to cook the pasta. In another pot, boil 3 cups of water to blanch the broccoli. Brown chicken on a hot oil, stir occasionally. Brown the garlic when chicken’s tender, sautee that mushrooms, tomatoes and add the sauce, cover until mushrooms are tender.
Add the pasta and broccoli, sprinkle some salt and pepper to taste. Mix evenly. Garnish with parsley. Serve hot!
A healthful dinner that does not need rocket Science to make. You can make your own pasta recipe, anyway you want it, it is possible!
I am a mom of two and I love feeling good inside out. Being a mother and a full-time housewife does not mean you let yourself go or look “lusyang” since what you do is run a household and take care of your family. That’s a big no no for me.
One of the things I do in order to look good for myself is wearing current, trendy yet affordable clothes. I also love showing my patriotism to this great country, and with that being said, fashion and patriotism combined in one clothing, yes please! I am into that.
I so love anything patriotic, whether it be undies, cover-ups, tops or dresses. I am attracted to this kind of fashion. One of which is the cover-up I recently bought from Amazon. I find it appealing and so I knew I am gonna love this clothing once I get it, I am right. It is soft, comfy to the skin, the size fits perfect in me and most of all, it’s the American flag!
I got a few US flag tops in my closet and I am waiting for the right time to wear them, show them that I am a proud United States law abiding citizen!
I recently been upgraded from VIP to FOREVER. I shall expect sweet perks and more freebies coming ahead of me for being a loyal customer to them for a couple of years now. Victoria’s Secret sent me my new credit card along with a $10 reward card to use.
So, I hurried to their store the other day and grabbed me this cute yellow green PINK mini cooler, I bought this $10.50 worth patriotic boy shorts and used that $10 reward, paid 54 cents including tax. VS currently giving out this mini cooler with three color choices until the 11th of this month.
If you want it, make any PINK purchase either online or in-store. I prefer the latter so I don’t need to pay for shipping. I think, this mini cooler is the coolest thing to have this summer to keep my drinks chilled the entire time I am outdoors.
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!
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.
~~ Sign up HERE. Fill out all necessary information of yourself.
~~ Connect all your social media account and once you get approved, you can start sharing ad contents of your choice or depending which media you got the highest number of followers/friends.
~~ 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.
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.
I am 32 at the moment yet I don’t let this number keep me from buying and wearing trendy tops. I don’t have a thin body nor a sexy bony-showing back but I love wearing open-back tops. It is because, in my mind and in my heart, I don’t feel 32.
I don’t get attracted to tops that look vintage or too oldie. No, if I wear those, it’s like I am declaring to the world that I am getting old, haha. Just my own opinion. No offense please.
Anyway, I am glad I now have this real cute open-back long sleeves from Amazon and it truly is comfortable. I could wear this every time I go to the mall or a dinner with my family if not for its neon pink color. I have dark skin tone and I get even darker if I wear this often.
It is a current trend and it’s even cuter when paired with the right bra. I saw other reviewers on Amazon posting photos of themselves fitting on this top wearing a cami, like ladies, seriously??
It is undeniable that my age is past the calendar number now, so I all I can do is at least take care of myself by exercising 2/3x a week if possible and take vitamins and supplements in order to delay the aging process and help support my immune system. I tell you what, I rarely get sick, except for seasonal allergies but other than that, I feel good, I feel healthy and most of all I don’t feel my age.
I have brittle nails, I do have natural smooth hair and no acne/pimple problems yet I am taking these vitamins pictured below. Two pink bottles by the way are for my girls. I feel these vitamins are working especially for my nails. They no longer chip easily and they grow fast.
Vitamins are expensive but if you are a wise shopper, you’ll find ways on getting them for low prices. Coupons and store sales are my way to afford these and be able to continue taking them as long as I live.
