Day 3 and 4 of Cagayan Valley and Ilocos Norte trip
(Sorry for the long wait. Been busy lately and forgot to upload this. Well, anyway, here it is. Enjoy!)

So 2nd day was frustrating.

Early morning of Day 3, Thursday at 6-7am, my aunt went to the market and bought something to cook for lunch and dinner. So when they arrive at 8am we all started to prepare for our food and the things we need to bring for our trip to some places in Ilocos.

A Vacation up North: Cagayan Valley and side trip to Ilocos Norte 2015 (Day 1 of 4)

It's summer here in the Philippines meaning it's super hot weather again. People are planing their summer outing near the metro. Beaches in Batangas, Subic, Pangasinan and Bataan are already populated with people. Boracay, Puerto Galera and other tourist center/place/attractions are getting jammed pack with lots of locals and foreign tourists. Whew! Where to go?

15 days on GARCINIA CAMBOGIA: review for the first day

Who's having weight issues here? I am one of those people going thru this issue. Since I was young people always tease me telling me that I am fat. I was born with this kind of body structure.
 When I was in high school I did exercise in the morning but failed. In college I would only eat lunch and dinner because I did have no time for breakfast but still did not achieve that body I was aiming for. When I started working I didn't have time for workouts but walking is my exercise which I did whenever I go to work (from home to office).

Good morning breakfast: Pandan Chiffon Cupcake

When I was young, I was a fun of all sorts of cupcakes and now as I grew older I became so picky. I wanted something very soft and bouncy. I love moist cakes and cupcakes but I would love it better if it would be soft as a cloud. Then I learned of sponge and chiffon cakes few years later (high school years) which now I am very found of. Chiffon cake for me is heaven ha ha... You know, the feeling of it when you touch and the lightness of it.

Tyne and Shiva our furr kids

Being a mom is like working 24/7. You wake up in the morning making breakfast, attend to everybody then do the chores, etc. I am a housewife but not a mommy yet. I feel just like a mom because I tend to 2 little furr kids.

Left: Shiva (Pomeranian) Right: Tyne (Lhasa Apso)
Say hello to Tyne and Shiva-our furry kids. :)

What's for dinner: Dinengdeng/Inabraw (Veggie Stew)

Bahay kubo, kahit munti,
ang halaman duon ay sari-sari.
Singkamas at talong,
Sigarilyas at mani.
Sitaw, bataw, patani.
Kundol, patola, upo't kalabasa.
At saka meron pa,
Labanos, mustasa.
Sibuyas, kamatis,
Bawang at luya.
Sa paligid-ligid ay puno ng linga.

This is a classic (ever most famous) Filipino folk song. It's about a small humbled hut with lots of
veggie plants around. Anyway, I was singing this because of the menu I am going to talk about today is about an Ilocano vegetable stew known as Dinengdeng (also called Inabraw by others).

Good Morning Breakfast: Cornbread muffins (recipe included)

Who loves corn? (raising my hand)  Admit it (you, yes you who is reading this). We all love corn. Me, I like it boiled or "Nilaga" as we Pinoy call it. I remember mommy buying the uncooked corn the boils it in a very large pot when I was still young. Funny coz there was a time I was so so excited to eat it that it was not completely cooked yet. ha ha ha.

What's for dinner: Sour Shrimp soup a.k.a. Sinigang na Hipon (recipe included)

I am a craving for Shrimp since last week so I decided to cook something special today. Since Shrimp here in Metro Manila is so expensive we get to have it only once in a blue moon. I am a seafood lover so this is a special menu for me. Please bear with me as I'm really drooling now, lols.
