Ginataang Sitaw at Kalabasa

Oh my! Ang tagal na nitong post na ito sa draft list ko at hindi ko natapos-tapos i-post. Masyadong naging busy for the past weeks because of the exams of Jeff. Alam nyo naman ako kapag ganyang exam na, talagang priority ko ang pag-aaral ng mga anak ko.

Anyway, just want to share with you guys one of my favorite ulam...ang ginataang sitaw at kalabasa with lots of shrimps and sliced liempo. Actually si bunso ay favorite din ito at ipagpapalit nya ang KFC basta ito ang ulam niya.

Kahit mahal ang niyog ay okay lang, basta gusto ko ang
maraming gata!!!
Kain tayo!

Tatay Ten's Bday and Jeff's Promotion Blowout

Last Sunday was a very busy day for us because it's Tatay Ten's (hubby's uncle) birthday and Jeffrey's promotion test. We were assigned by hubby's cousins to buy all the food that will be eaten for dinner. A double celebration was indeed a happy occasion for all of us. Tatay Ten is like a second father to hubby, that's why he's really special to us. For our Jeffrey, we are really proud for all his achievements at a very young age. Taekwondo taught him to be more disciplined and patient.

Silver Crown Chicken

Camaron Rellenado

Judy Ann's Crispy Pata

We ordered two, hehehe...

Special Fried Rice

and Leche Flan

and so... it's eating time!!!

Kain na tayo :)

KORYO Korean Barbeque

Two weeks ago, when we were at the Sky Garden. I became curious when I saw lots of people patiently waiting in line just to taste the world-famous Garlic Potato from Koryo. I'm not a fan of Korean dishes but this signature side dish of Koryo got me into it.

people waiting for their turn...

Love the way they prepare it :)

After frying the potatoes...

They'll put it in a big bowl and mix all the ingredients and...

that's it!

oh my... i'm drooling while looking at the above pic :)

See how nice they present this very affordable,
very yummy Garlic Potato?

I can't help but to go inside the restaurant and asked the very kind Manager if I could take pictures and he immediately gave me a go signal (yehey!!!)
The store is very clean and has a very homey ambiance...

I have yet to try their main dishes, but I will definitely go back because
of their very affordable gourmet

Wow! A nice ambiance plus an affordable food equals
a great dining experience for sure!

I'm excited for my next visit !!!

Craving for a Yellow Cab Pizza


One afternoon, we went to Trinoma looking for Jeff's shoes for Christmas (hehehe...ang aga) and glad that we immediately found what he really likes! While strolling, we saw this booth were you can take pictures and Jeffrey willingly posed in the clown and magician images.

A serious clown and magician ?
(hahaha...sakto kasi yung cheeks nya kaya hindi makatawa!)

After strolling for an hour, we craved for pizza and we ended up at Yellow Cab.
Jeffrey played with the numbers while waiting for our pizza :)

As usual, the disposable plate, plastic spoon and fork...
Royal is Jeff's favorite soda ;)
and the pizza came...
We prefer New York's Finest if we're with Jeff
(fave namin ni hubby ang four seasons)

Jeff loves their Hot Wings!

my first slice...

and a piece of chicken wing...

the condiments ...

I was curious with Jeff's pics...
Bakit kaya laging nakasimangot dito?

Baby Jeffrey

Naghahanap ako ng lumang pictures ko nung college when I saw these baby pics of Jeffrey. Hehehe... nakakatuwa kasi nakakamiss bigla ang magkaroon ng baby na inaalagaan. Yung may pinapadede ka, kinakarga, hinimas-himas ang makinis na balat, pinapalitan ng diaper, pinaliliguan sa tub...hayyyy... nakaka-miss pero ayaw ko ng magka-baby uli, tama na yung dalawa kasi mahirap magpuyat, mahal ang gatas, mahal ang diapers at pati magpa-bakuna...hahaha!

Ayan si Jeffrey when he was 4 months old I think...
Ang haba ng hair nya at malago at super cute (IMHO) hahaha!!!

Dahil mahaba ang hair niya ... para akong may anak na babae
dahil inaayusan ko siya, hehehe...

Lagi tuloy siyang napagkakamalang baby girl nung mga panahon na iyon...

Eto na si Jeff ngayon... topakin na!
Wala sa mood kaya masungit...
pero very caring na anak ang Jeffrey ko na ito :)

Every 31st of October ay may mga visitors kaming dumadating to celebrate her birthday as well as to visit our departed loved ones at Tugatog Cemetery .
