Mommy T Coach and I worked together for my very first blog giveaway on D is for Delicious. We’ve finally cracked our brains on some very high tech methods to declare the winner of this fabulous giveaway with FREE 30-minutes of life coaching at stake…
This is a story of two little piggies: Sir Loin and Miss Piggy.
Two little (But oh…who in reality are not-so-little anymore) piggies, who are psycho porcine cannibals because they enjoy eating their own kind with much gusto. They would go the extra mile or maybe a few more to purchase a kilo or two for their monthly food supply from these hidden porky enclaves in the desert city.
Today was no exception…
I’ve been here in Dubai for almost 7-months already, but I still consider myself a happy, eager, ready-for-almost-anything tourist. Whenever I walk around the city, para akong naglalakad sa Luneta (it feels like a leisurely stroll in Luneta park) because I manage to see very new things that, apparently, even long time residents fail to notice.
I wish I could write about food today, but after seeing this new short film of Procter & Gamble for the 2012 London Olympics, I couldn’t help but savor a walk down memory lane and relive a number of moments from a good chunk of my life – 12-years to be exact, when my parents and I were going through the same motions as in the film.
I held the hot bowl full of thin lechon paksiw (roast pork stew) sauce delicately, poised to dispose it deep into the recesses of our wee kitchen sink. It took me a long 15 minutes to make this decision, too long a period to decide whether I would face The Husband’s well-meaning scolding on wasting still barely edible food thrown into the garbage or The Husband’s complaints on disgusting, almost inedible soupy lechon paksiw.
I took a gamble.
I am a food TV junkie and I think I’ve learned about 80% of what I know about food through the telly. But at the top of my food telly charts is my favorite cooking competition, Top Chef. I am such a fan girl that I snuck out of the office, together with my sisters and father, to get a glimpse of and to get an autograph on our copy of Top Chef: The Cookbook. Check out our giddy fan photos…
I can’t believe it’s been almost a week in Manila already. My life has basically been a blur. Or mostly in a standstill as I seem to spend most of my time on the road, which is a good 4 to 5 hours a day. Traffic isn’t usually this bad, but since it’s been raining almost non-stop (or conveniently during rush hours) plus, as most people have tweeted, the start of the Christmas season (We are suckers for the Christmas holidays and the Christmas carols start playing on the radio as early as September). If you’ve been following me on Twitter, I admit I have been ranting A LOT. Yes, welcome back to the chaos that is Manila!
