FTF: My Quick Chicken Adobo

I happened to have boiled chicken, so what I did was, sauteed it in oil, minced garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, bay leaves and a little bit of chili sauce. I waited till the sauce is almost gone, then it is ready. There are many style of how Pinoys cook adobo. Sometimes, you can just mix all the ingredients, then boil them until the meat is tender; if you want it dry or with a little sauce, it's up to you.

FTF: Biko

Last week was Allison's 8th birthday and baptism. I made a Biko for refreshment as her Mom requested me to bring something. So, here it is. Though it was new to them, they ate the Biko and Allison actually loves it. I am glad I chose to bring this meryenda for Allison and her Mom are both allergic to wheat and this s a gluten free food.

I am back, and this is my entry for FTF this week :-), Join the button below.

Affordable Eyeglasses at Zenni Optical

The importance of reading is one of the things we want to impress upon our son's mind. It teaches you almost everything you want to know in this life. I used to read a lot when I was young. Mostly, I read English magazines and books. It help me learn to speak English and write as well. No wonder why teacher put so much emphasis on encouraging kids to read even during summertime as well as telling their parents to read to their kids everyday. Anyway, we have been doing these two things s far. Husband and I noticed that our son sometimes misread and skip some words when he reads. We couldn't figure out why. All we can think of is that he might need an eyeglasses. If so, then we need to take him to an ophthalmologist and have his eyes check. A prescription  for eyeglasses is what we need to get him an eyeglasses.

Good thing I know that I can buy cheap eyeglasses online. This website manufactures and sells not only eyeglasses but also fashionable, and quality sunglasses that are affordable. Zenni optical is known for inexpensive yet quality made sun and eye glasses. Anyway, I need a new prescription eyeglasses myself, and we couldn't afford to buy one anywhere because I need to at least pay $300 for it. But at zenni optical, I can buy prescription eyeglasses without getting broke. Imagine two eyeglasses worth $300 each. Where in the world I will get $600 for me and my son's eyeglasses. No wonder why wouldn't go back to our eye doctor for the doctor would ask him to get a new one since it's been years since he got his eyeglasses and it really need to upgrade it.

Perfect Breakfast Snack for Hubby

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

Working on a graveyard shift is one of my husband's most hated job schedule in his life. He has been working night shift now for three years and still hasn't gotten use to it. You can still hear him complains about it at least once a week. I kept saying that he needs to get use to it and stop complaining. He doesn't have any choice. He needs to be grateful, he has a job. As we know, a lot of people don't have job or couldn't find a job.  I know not being able to sleep at night is bad for his health. Sleeping all day, is not good for him either. He wished that someone in the department where he works would switch schedule with him, but no luck. Nobody wants to work at night, period.

Anyway, during his shift, sometimes he gets hungry, and so he eats some snacks, but most of the time unhealthy snacks. That's one of the reasons why he gained a lot of weight. So,  I told him to eat fruits and veggies for snacks instead of junk foods.  He said that sometimes, he gets bored with those foods. too! I think he needs to alternate them with protein bar which is very popular with busy people like him.  I hope he'll like the new Quaker Soft Baked Bar for it is very delicious.  The banana nut bread flavor as well as the cinnamon pecan bread are loaded with fruits and nuts  that can provide him the fuel he needs as he works on night shift.  This eat on - the- go breakfast snack can be eaten as it is or warm it up for a real bakery experience. I don't really need to choose which one of the two flavors is my favorite, it is because I like both of them. I have baked banana nut bread as well as cinnamon pecan bread and both flavors are pretty good. So why don't you try both of them as well?

These soft baked bars are not only yummy, but also are packed with 5 g of fiber, 6g of protein, excellent source of 5 B - vitamins, and has 140 calories. A wholesome food  for the whole family.

My Healthy Meal

Okay, I am trying to lose weight and be healthy again. To do that, I need to change my lifestyle particularly. Eat a healthy meal, and exercise. So, I try to walk everyday for at least 45 minutes to an hour. I also eat more fruits and vegetables, meat and fish and very little carbs. As you can see on the picture, my plate has more veggies than rice. I also have a small fish.

Watching carefully what I put in my mouth helps me lose weight. Exercise is a big factor, too. I am glad that for the past 6 six now, I already lost 7 pounds. I feel great already. Anyway, the foods on my plate were, fried fish, fresh salsa. stir fry bean sprout, and sauteed squash and Asian long beans. Oh they are all so yummy, indeed :-).

I Love Using Roadtrip - a-Matic on

I am really happy that summer is finally here for my family and I  can take a long awaited road trip to somewhere interesting and fun. Well, if you are just as excited as we are, have you ever thought about planning your own roadtrip to the state of Pennsylvania? It turns out that many people who love roadtrips plan to go to that wonderful state because of all the history, the landmarks, the shopping destinations that Pennsylvania has to offer. One of the difficult things about planning pa-roadtrips is that it takes time and it is usually best to know exactly where you will be heading rather than just driving around. 


Well, a great website to check out is because they have a brand new tool called the Roadtrip-a-Matic that helps you find out exactly where you should go to based on what you and your family might like to do. For instance, I love to go shopping for various items and even with Pennsylvania being a state with rich history, they have great shopping destinations. Using the Roadtrip-a-Matic tool from you can select the Spree Shoppers Roadtrip and you will find out what the best places to shop in Pennsylvania are. Anyone who would like to find out more about all of the great places to visit in Pennsylvania should check out the, you will be surprised at what they have to offer.
