Delicious Domestic Seafood Recipe  

Posted by SweetPinay in

Ever since I was still young I really loved to eat fish. Now is the time for me to share my favorite domestic seafood recipe. I like all different kinds of fish recipes but I love the sweet and sour Salmon the most. This is how I cook my very simple Salmon recipe. My ingredients: 2-3 Salmon fillets,
1 Red bell pepper
1 Green bell pepper
1 small onion
1 medium size carrots
1 small size of ginger
1 tsp. of garlic
1/2 cup pineapple chunks or tidbits
1Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp Vinegar
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 heaping tsp of cornstarch(dissolved in 2-3 Tbsp of water)
Preparation: Rinse the fish and let it dry, cut into halves or depending on your desired size, prepare the wok or frying pan and let it heat before adding the vegetable oil. After heating the pan pour the vegetable oil and let it heat for 2 minutes then fry the fish until it turns brownish. After frying set aside the fried fish and start making the sauce in another wok. To make the sauce you need 6 Tbsp ketchup, 2 Tbsp. fish sauce, 3 Tbsp. soy sauce, 1+1/2 cups water, 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar, 2-3 Tbsp. brown sugar (adjust according to taste). Cover the pan and wait 3-5 minutes before adding all the ingredients. This is how I cook my sweet and sour salmon if you have suggestions and comment feel free to message me anytime. One of these days this simple dish of mine will be a great contender for Cook off. I'm very excited for this event and the positiveness of domestic seafood sustainability.

Thank you PPP!

Parallel Parking  

Posted by SweetPinay in

The only thing that I'm not really so sure to do yet is parallel parking. Hubby decided to teach me how to do the parallel parking, oh my it's kinda hard but finally I figured it out. I get frustrated earlier because at first I can't get it right a way I'm afraid that I'm gonna hit the cone that hubby put in front and the trash can at the back to represent as other cars. It's been 8 months since I got my learner's permit so now the next step is to get my driver's license. Here in our state you need to wait 6 months after you got your learner's permit before you can actually get the driver's license. Maybe one of these days we will visit DMV for road test. Hopefully I pass in one shot.:)

Sugar Cane Truck  

Posted by SweetPinay in

Have you ever try riding in a sugar cane truck?Oh I missed those days when I was still in the Philippines. This Truck was owned by my parents they have it since they started planting a sugar cane. So much fun to ride on this truck especially if it is loaded with sugar cane and you are on top of it. Sometimes it's too dangerous especially if the truck is on the hill but if my father is the driver I felt safe and comfortable. Hmm, hopefully to ride again on this truck when we get home to PI.

When I was still in the Philippines I used to ride in a jeepney. After arriving here in the US I did not notice any public transportation, I think there are some but it's not common compared back home in the Philippines. Oh well it's a lot different here in the US if you don't have your own car you can't do anything. I was just so happy that my work place is so close to my hubby's office and that he will just drop me off and picked me up when I'm done working. I'm not really excited either to have my own car especially now a days that the cost of gas is getting too high. Too bad that public transportation is not common here in our place where we live.

Taking Control: Future Therapies for a Host of Serious Diseases May Be Found in Women's Menstrual Blood

July 07, 2008: 01:28 PM EST

OLDSMAR, Fla., July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- With today’s hectic lifestyle, where most women are juggling careers, family, relationships, and a host of activities, the idea of possibly facing a serious illness in the future is not something that readily comes to mind -- especially when a woman is in the prime of her life. But what most women don’t know, is that the key to treating a number of possibly life-threatening diseases that she, a parent, a sibling or even her children may face in later years, such as osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, may be found within her own body -- in vital stem cells, which can now be harvested from her own menstrual blood.

Now, thanks to the revolutionary research and technology of C’elle, a service dedicated to providing women with a safe and easy method of collecting and preserving stem cells found in her menstrual fluid each month, even the busiest woman can take control of her future, right in the privacy of her own home. With C’elle’s non-invasive collection process, menstrual cells are processed and cryo-preserved (stored at a very low temperature) for potential cellular therapies that may be used in the future. These self-renewing cells one day may even be used for sports medicine or cosmeceutical treatments, such as anti-aging therapies.

"C’elle enables and empowers a woman to take control of her future health, and possibly of those genetically closest to her, in a fast, painless and stress free way," said Michelle Kay, Marketing and Sales Manager for C’elle. "We live in exciting times, as science and technology are discovering how extremely valuable menstrual blood stem cells really are, and the enormous treatment potential they represent for future therapies. C’elle’s ongoing research is supporting these promising findings."

My first Ampalaya:)  

Posted by SweetPinay in

It's good to be home after a long day at work. Last Thursday we went back again to the Filipino store and bought some stuff. I saw "ampalaya" bitter gourd laying down in the box. I ask the owner about the price and it's reasonable so I did grab just couple. Oh well this is one of my favorite food back home,I cooked it with egg on it,hubby tried it a little bit. He said it's definitely bitter but it's bearable . I know he is not used to this kind of vegetable but he tried it. Hopefully before going to bed I can catch an Opp in my PPP,I almost got it earlier but it was too fast and I lost it. grrrr!

YM Scammer beware!  

Posted by SweetPinay in

Guys Watch out with your YM account you might be talking to somebody that is not actually the owner of the account. Yesterday one of my friend in friendster posted in the bulletin board that her YM was hacked. We just recently exchange YM account and yesterday I sent her a message right away in Friendster telling her that I received A YM message from her around 6 in the morning. And she replied that it was not her who sent me a message. Somebody was using her YM account and asking for prepaid cards and money. what a scam! good thing I was not able to reply her in YM because the message was sent to my SMS. My Cellphone was in my purse the whole night and was not able to check it right away. Once your YM is hacked the scammer can go over in your account and change your password and everything. Then she will go over with all of your friends list asking for money and cards. The scammer will send you a link and begging you to open it then once you will enter your information you will be surprised because you can no longer open your account and your hacked already. So guys beware of this big time scam. Never ever give any personal information if your not so sure who are you talking to. Scamming is so rampant out there let's just be very careful.
