Christmas Dish 2013

I was working on Christmas Eve at my place of work until 3 o'clock in the afternoon and I was worried sick because I thought I won't be able to make food for our Christmas Eve dinner. Thankfully, I was able to do it after resting about an hour or so after I arrived from home and decided to make 3 types of Filipino dish that my husband had requested for me to make. The three dishes that I cooked were Pinoy Style Spaghetti, Bake Stuff Pompano Fish and Special Chicken Caldereta. Take a look at the photos below and I will be posting the recipe later on.

What have you cook for your Christmas dinner? I would love to hear it from you!

Visit Treasure Force Today!

Right now, one of the most entertaining things to do with your free time is to play games online. Of course with so many gaming websites to go to, it is nice to find out which websites are right for. Well fortunately, there is a website that will help you find out which sites are best. Many of these websites are known as カジノオンライン in Japanese or simply “online casinos” in English. Despite the fact that many of them are in Japanese, they have links to other great online casino websites such as Treasure Force dot com that are your gateway to everything concerning online casinos and games. Treasure Force is very interesting because they use a great deal of Japanese Anime in their advertising, which I think kind of helps when navigating this website for people who might not be fluent in Japanese. In any case, Treasure Force is really a great website to go to in order to look for online casino games that you are sure to love, so why not check out this great website today, you will be glad you did.

Jollibee Oh How I Miss You!

One of the many things I miss about being in the Philippines is not able to dine out at one of my favorite fast food place called Jollibee. I am craving for some Chicken Joy and Jollibee Spaghetti. I would rather have this delicious food in my table if I was ask to choose between McDonald and Jollibee. Also, going to the Jollibee reminded me of those great memories I have with my family as well as bringing my younger siblings every pay period. As a matter of fact, when my then boyfriend and now my husband visited me in the Philippines for the first time in 2004 we went to Jollibee for our first date. Overall, Jollibee became a huge part in our everyday life in the Philippines.

Hotel Supplies!

Operating a hotel or motel chain is a great business in this day in age because there is always a need for hotels or motels. This is especially true if you live in a large city or a city that draws in lots of tourists. Often times it can even be difficult to get a hotel when traveling to a large city, I know that from experience when my husband and I have had to struggle to find a decent place to stay while out of town. One of the things that tourists look for in a hotel or motel is a good price, but also comfort and safety are equally important and many people are willing to spend a little more for comfort and safety, I know I do. So finding supplies is very important so that your guests will feel comfortable, and fortunately you can actually find any Hotel Supply Online. The types of hotel supplies include hairdryers, furniture and even Hotel Bar Supplies. There is one place that has Atlanta Hotel Supply that sells great items in the wonderful city of Atlanta, this place is called Peach Suite, and even if you don’t live in Atlanta you can have them ship their supplies to you, wherever you live. So go check out their website today, you will definitely find a great deal!

How to Have the Best Hydroponics Set Up

The best hydroponics all starts with the best equipment. Starting out in hydroponics, it is very important to make sure you have a quality carbon filters, as well as the right type of grow tents and lights for your specific need. If you are having trouble deciding where to look or even begin, give a try. They already have a great reputation. Although it is very important to find cheap supplies for hydroponics (so that you don’t break the bank), it is very possible to keep everything quality while still at a lower price. LA shop has been known for making products not only cheaper, but easier to purchase as well. Reviewers have mentioned products being fifty dollars cheaper than other rival sites, and customer service was always great. Hydroponics is a great hobby to start up, and can even be a business in a small town. Growing your plants indoors enables you to not have to worry about the weather constantly and will allow you to not deal with any natural disasters such as floods and thunderstorms that could ruin a whole season. All the products available have been through testing so that they are ensured to help you and be efficient for your garden. One of the things that LA shop Hydroponics is known for actually is their customer service. If any product arrives damaged or dysfunctional, they are more than happy to help with no hassle! Not many companies are like that nowadays so the customers are very appreciative. If you want to give hydroponics a try, start at your library and take out a few books so you can learn what really goes into it! It is a very rewarding experience and is an easy way to maintain your plants. Your grow tents will be very important to maintaining your indoor garden so make sure you choose quality tent material!

Food Adventure

Dearest husband and I had been dining out a whole lot lately. As a matter of fact, we have been trying new cuisine at least once a week when we both have the same days off from our places of work. One of my favorite dishes that I tried was fried calamari. DH and I also went to try out our local Vietnamese restaurants here and wow I am so impressed; the food was perfectly cooked to my liking and so delicious. Lastly, we went to one of my favorite restaurant of all times and that is Texas Road House. I am forever grateful for having a husband who is as an adventurous as me.

My Sister's Gulaman Recipe

I love having a big family because we can always rely on each other. For instance, one of my younger sister’s specialties is making delicious desserts. I was drooling after I saw this picture a month ago when she made some gulaman for my other sister's birthday. It looks so delicious and according to her the ingredients were not expensive. Well, I did beg her to give me a recipe so I can try and make it here. Check out the picture I have posted here and tell me what you think?
