He Would Love This Phone!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.

My husband who is the only bread winner in our household has a tough job to do when it comes to managing our finances. I offered to work outside home, so I could help him with our bills and save at the same time for emergency. But he refused my offer because he wanted me to stay home and be a happy Homemaker. I respect his decision and now I am a one happy stay at home Mom.

Anyway, he said we could cut down our expenses by canceling cable TV, turning lights off when not in use as well as the faucets. Cutting down his mobile bills could save us more. He thinks that switching to Straight Talk is the next thing he needs to do for it will really help us with our money management. I learned from watching videos of Straight Talk customers that even though this phone has no contract; you can get phone plan with more minutes, txt, and web data on monthly basis for an affordable price, which means more savings.

Straight Talk is a no contract mobile plan that has everything you need , with no with no hidden charges or fees, and no credit checks. You can use it when calling overseas with excellent reception and connectivity.  And best of all, I like their plan which is the Straight Talk “All you need plan” that everyone will enjoy. This plan has a 1,000 minutes call, 1,000 txt, and 30MB of web data for just $30 a month. Their Unlimited service which includes unlimited calls, txt, picture message, and web browsing only cost $45 a month which will only be $499.00 a year. When you call a friend or family overseas, you will only pay as little as $5. I love that I don’t have to worry about termination fee for they don’t require it. Yes, no termination fee!

Straight Talk only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung. Anyway, if you have children, this phone features everything they’ll love such as camera, mp3 player, mobile web access, and blue-tooth capability. Okay, it would be up to you still, after all, mom knows best .

FTF: Inabraw or Dinengdeng

It is good to know that when I crave for something like Filipino foods, I can always rely on Asian market because they sell some asian veggies such as saluyot, labong, talong, tamarind, sitaw and more. Okay, this is a Filipino dish that originates in Ilocano province. Saluyot with labong with fried tilapia. The taste is a little bit sour blend with salt. We call it "Inabraw". My version of this dish is, I put tamarind or sometimes Santol (if available) that is why it has a sour taste.

How about you. What is your version of this recipe? Share it with us; join this meme now!

Staying in touch with our loved ones, especially with our kids this summer is one major concern of most parents. Our children, specifically those in their teenage years tend to explore the world around them and the best time to do it is during summer. So since school is out and vacation is in, children, teenagers would love to spend time outside their homes, they go out with friends, they go malling, camping, or just stay outdoors. So to keep in touch with them and to know their whereabouts, parents give them cellular phones as this is the easiest and affordable way to reach them.
