Adobong Manok

Adobong manok, often called "chicken adobo," is often considered the national dish of the Philippines. Its origins are with the Spanish colonizers--adobo is the Spanish word for a marinade--but Filipinos have happily adapted it as their own. The vinegar marinade makes a dish that stores very well in the Filipino heat. Endless varieties of adobo exist and each region has its own specialty. Besides chicken and pork, there is fish, squid, green bean and even eggplant adobo.

4-6 servings
  • Chicken, cut into serving pieces -- 2 1/2 to 3 pound
  • White vinegar -- 3/4 cup
  • Soy sauce -- 1/4 cup
  • Onion, thinly sliced -- 1/2
  • Garlic, crushed -- 4-6 cloves
  • Bay leaf -- 1-2
  • Peppercorns -- 6-8
  • Salt -- 1 teaspoon
  • Water -- 1 cup
  • Oil -- 1/4 cup


  1. Add the chicken pieces, vinegar, soy sauce, onion, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns and salt to a large, non-reactive bowl and refrigerate for 1-4 hours to marinate.
  2. Place the chicken and its marinade in a large pot. Add the water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30-45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender. Add water as necessary to keep the chicken from drying out.
  3. Remove the chicken from its sauce, reserving the sauce, and pat dry. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high flame and sauté the chicken pieces to brown them. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Bring the remaining sauce to a boil over medium flame and cook until somewhat reduced and thickened.
  5. Toss the browned chicken pieces with the reduced sauce and serve with rice.


Last night I was bored and started blogging. I was messing around and googled "Get Paid to Blog". Either I was already a member or I once was and didn't really care for it because I didn't get many opportunities. I discovered Snapbomb and signed up, which was free and easy. This 11 pm last night, and when I woke up this morning I had several opportunities waiting for me to blog about. That is the quickest approval that I have ever received.

Another nice part about Snapbomb, once you commit to writing a blog, it give you about 12 hours to complete it. Through other sites, you either right about it now, or someone else is going to take that opportunity. My experience with Snapbomb has been nothing but positive, and I would recommend this to anyone.

Another nice part about it, if you are an advertiser you have the right to choose who (page rank) and how much you are willing to pay to for your advertisement.

C-130 Cargo Plane Crashed at Davao gulf

Last night when I'm cooked our foods for dinner and my mother watching the news from ABS-CBN I heard from our kitchen that the anchor man reporting about a plane crashed. There's a one thing that can make me stop on what I'm doing. It was a C-130 cargo plane crashed in Davao City near at my mother's in law house. It make me shock that's why I leave my work for awhile to watched that news. My husband didn't told me when we together a while ago that's why I didn't know this news. This tragedy makes me remind when we arrived going in Tarlac City together my father and my sisters to visit my mother who worked in that place when I was 13 year old. I'm very thankful that it was very safe flight and now I still alive.

Finally Done

Last August 20, we celebrated the 2nd birthday of my daughter. It's not a big celebration but I think that it makes me memorable because that moment I spent my time to my friends, relatives and also to my family. After my kids playing at People's Park we eat at Whaw Grill & Restaurant. I don't like the way they serve the foods. Base on my experienced, after we ordered the foods I thought that they serve us nicely but I'm so disappointed of them. They serve us I think a left over litson manok and they didn't automatically serve what we need. My goshh , I didn't eat properly. It's make me ashamed to my visitor's because I invited them to that restaurant. Guys, I don't have any intention to broke their reputation but this is only base on my experienced. Have a nice day!!

How to Gain Weight?

Here are some methods to gain weight:
1. Eat nutritious foods that are high in calories. Examples are whole-grain breads, vegetables such as avocados and potatoes, kidney beans, lean red meat, poultry and fish.
2. Increase the caloric value of your meals. Add powdered milk to casseroles for added calories, add avocados and olives to sandwiches, add wheat germ to your cereal, add chopped meat to your pasta sauce, and so on.
3.Avoid skipping meals. Knowing how to gain weight involves consistent eating. Eat three meals a day and at least two snacks.
4.Increase your normal portion size. Take a second scoop of pasta, or add two bananas to your oatmeal.
5. Choose higher-calorie foods when given a choice. For example, corn is higher in calories than green beans.
6. Relax - excessive fidgeting and restlessness can burn up a lot of calories.
8.Balance your caloric intake with the number of calories you're burning. You need to be taking in more than you use up, and you may need to ease up a little on your exercise program.

I hope that this methods can help you. Happy Blogging guys..

Too Late

Me and my kids we got home too late yesterday, why? Because I get out on my work 4:30pm. Then after that we need to wash our motorcycle because it's very dirty. My kids are in the house of their lola ( my husband mother) so I need go there to pick up them. We hard to find a jeepney to commute because my hisband can't ride with us because he have an duty on that day. We travel almost an hour that's why,we got there I think 7 o'clock. We ate early because we both so tired so that we can sleep then by tomorrow we wake up early again to face another day.
