First blog post

I actually have always wanted to write about just anything; life experiences, travel, cooking, parenting, relationships, etc. But I always got caught up into a busy days. As a working full time mom and housewife, it’s so difficult to find a good time to do what I like. But here I am writing my first blog, so here’s how did all started.

Like my daily routine, waking up early preparing my husband’s breakfast, and as he goes out to work I woke up our 2year old little girl and share a quick breakfast with her. Then the household works starts and finished it with hungry tummy; “oh it’s already noon”. I haven’t even prepared food for lunch yet, not even starting any computer work yet, not even been out of the house yet for my daughter’s daily fresh air. So I decided to just check what I can cook for lunch only to found out that there is not even much food stock left, not even some meat, but thanks god that it’s only me and my little one at home. So while cutting all these little veggies left, I didn’t even know how will I cook them, then my mind started to flow again how I love to cook and this is something I would love to do if I decide to get another job. Then my desire to write comes next and thought that I could actually start to write about cooking, but I said NO, I don’t wanna write just usual common recipes, I want to do more that this, communicating and reaching out other people’s senses is what I want, in any different subjects. So I made a decision, I’m gonna start to write; of course I will include some recipes and tips of cooking within my blog so I could do both of what I loved at the same time, and this is what I feel like to write today. So as a start I wanna share how I easily manage to make something good to eat in the last minute and without enough main ingredients , and that little girl could eat well too. So all I have is this “Baguio Beans and carrots” what am I gonna do with it? First, I take a look of what spices I have and check what’s first thing needs to be eaten before it gets bad, tomatoes most especially, that means my sauce would gonna be with tomatoes. But I have a little one with me who’s not into vegetables so much yet, though I really always try to introduce it to her but I’m afraid she would not eat it just like this. So I opened up the fridge and search for something she may also like. A lyoner sausage! Perfect! Even though I haven’t cooked vegetables with sausage yet, I felt relieved that there is something at least she likes and I will make it good for both of us. So here’s what I made out of it; (you can see the quantity of vegetables in the pics. Actually just good for two)

1. Cut the sausage into small cubes. Stir fry until medium brown with an olive oil. Remove fried sausage from the pan.
2. In the same pan sauté Diced tomatoes and green Bell Pepper for about 2 minutes in a medium heat. Slightly press the tomatoes to make a little sauce.
3. Add the carrots and green beans. Stir fry for another 2 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and ground black pepper. Add 3pcs dried bay leaves.
4. Pour in 120ml water. Put 1Tbsp. Tomato paste. 1Tbsp. Paprika. A pinch of sugar. Add little more salt and pepper. Add a pinch of dried oregano and rosemary, but this is optional. Cover and cook until vegetables are tender. You can always add a bit of water if needed. It must be with a little bit of sauce when done.
5. Add 1tsp. Fish sauce. Adjust taste with salt and a bit of sugar according to the taste you like.
6. Transfer the cooked vegetables into the plate and top it with the fried sausage.

Done! You see, as easy as that. You don’t need to always search for recipes to make something good, just look of what you have and let your feeling decide what kind of taste you wanna have; salty, sour, sweet etc. and look for best available ingredients you have at home. Just do what you think is good, nothing to worry about trying of something new, who knows how it’s gonna be unless you tried. Most importantly, its healthy and yummy! And my tip is, follow your taste, cook according to your own taste at that moment you are cooking. Adjust as much as you want, your own taste will never disappoint you in such a hurry unplanned cooking, instead you can make it even better.
Yes! I’ve finally wrote my first blog. I can’t wait to share more! We will see what is it about with the next one! See you!


Buy from Amazon and helps unfortunate kids

I started Amazon Affiliate MArketing to be able to earn and help those less unfortunate. I wanna share my commission from to support kids in the Philippines, it will be a feeding program and help some of them who really have nothing to start school.

I left home town a long time ago and everytime I visit the place it always breaks my heart that the situation there has never changed. These kids had to walk daily back and forth to school for half an hour or more under the heat of a sun and for lunch time they just look for a house where they can drink water for free and eat their pack lunch, my parents house is one of their favorites. May be because they knew they can drink there for free and also some siblings of mine is one of their classmates or close friends. But it’s not what really breaks my heart, I’ve been in that situation too in my childhood days. But as I have observed these kids are not eating anything good, only plain rice and sometimes with some small fishes (as in much smaller than your finger) or sometimes nothing with the rice at all to give taste. So nutrition is really bad. I could not really blame their parents, who am I to judge? For sure they also tried hard to be able to send their kids to school and at least with something little to eat, life is just unfair sometimes. 

I used to give christmas gifts before when I was still making money with my online business. But it stopped. And so I can’t help anymore too cause I have started a family of my own. 

But thinking of these people, the kids; how they’re raised and feed, would the future be better than now? I AM TRULY AFRAID. So I said, since I am into selling something online, why not get back to it and share income of my hardwork to them? So I decided I will just do it. I signed up to become an amazon affiliate. And asked my parents and teacher friends in same area to send me some pictures of these kids. I will insert YouTube video of them here later. My goal is to be able to feed them something nutritious at least 2x a week. They will be very very very happy! 

So common people, let’s do it. Let’s save the future by saving all of the kids, they will be our future and we all want that better world, right? Just simply buy any amazon products from these categories below. Thank you very much. I will appreciate it very much!

Death Penalty in the Philippines, what do you say?

Death penalty in the Philippines, is it really going to be approved soon? 272 out of 293 congressmen/women have just voted on the return of the death penalty in the Philippines. 217 in favor, 54 against it and 1 abstained. This is the third and final reading of the House Bill number 4727 which allowed the judges to punish with either death penalty or lifetime imprisonment those who commits heinous crimes such as drug involvement, rape, kidnapped, etc. After its a approval, the vote counts  will be submitted to the Senate for another three readings. 

Death Penalty. What can I say? Will it really help to decreased crimes in the Philippines? Is it really fair enough to kill those who commit sins? I could not think what’s best. I also had few bad experiences and have seen enough of those killings and women being raped even children, and I was never feeling safe while in there, I always had to be aware including all those nights alone. Totally frustrated of what’s going on. But this will really be very sad, as a Filipina born and raised in the Philippines, I don’t wanna hear a news saying one have punished by hanging, then another one with lethal injection, and one more killed thru a Firing Squad. But on the other side I also have enough hearing all those bad news of killings and raped due to being high on drugs and whatever awful news. HAYYY NAKU! If only everyone choose to do better things and let the love be above all, this could be a better world.
But if this is the only best way to stop those crimes, even if i hardly agree, still I support for this. I’ll just hope and pray that this will make the crime rate lesser and that those in the dark who commits sins will enlighten up their lives and think that life is actually much much much better living with love on our hearts. 

The Secret of a Long Lasting Relationship and a happy marriage 

How to have a long lasting relationship? How to have a happy marriage? These are just some questions we have in mind once we failed on relationship or before getting into a relationship.

Every couple wants a happy relationship for a lifetime. There are some who succeed and still being happy together for many years and there are also some who chose to part ways. Every relationship is not prefect, there will be lots of ups and downs. But the most important is you still choose each other  and grow old together. 

Being on a 3rd serious relationship, I’ve really learned a lot from my partner and started to understand the misunderstandings and flaws I have never seen before in my failed previous relationships. 

Here I share with you what it actually takes to have a happy long lasting relationship;

Don’t live according to her/his preferences and expectations, true love is accepting someone completely including your flaws.

Appreciation is important. Appreciate her for waking up early to help you preparing for work, she may be still too sleepy but forced herself to get up for you. Appreciate him for providing for you and for the living despite of your independence, he may be is tired and wanted to rest but chose to work to give you both a better and secured future. Those are just some efforts we rarely see and forget to appreciate. Thank each other frequently, showing appreciation motivates your partner.

Giving up is not the key when something’s wrong in your relationship. True love is more than just a feeling, its a commitment. Making the relationship to work is a choice.

Try giving hug to each other before discussing an issue.  It will more likely give you love and understanding on the issue than ending up with a fight.

Listen to your partner before you make any comment whether you agree or not. Sometimes the other one is Shouting cause  of desperation to be heard and understood when the other one is not trying to be open and listen. Never closed your door for him/her.

Stand up for each other. Never ever say anything bad against your partner to anybody even to your friends. They may understood it differently and you’ve given them a bad image of your partner and its too late for you to take your words back. He/She is your better half, your own reflection. Not your enemy.

Make him/her your bestfriend, giving enough privacy but comfortably being around each other like there is nothing to hide and check. Always be there for each other and as a team. Live, laugh and love like how friends should be.

Give some freedom. You will not always have the same interest, give each other some time to enjoy his/her own interests. Choking is not the way to be always together. Being there for each other is a willingness not a stress.

Make time for each other. This is something very important because you are creating memories together.  In bad times you may forget how much you love your partner but the memories you have together will remind you and bring you back closer again. 

Avoid expecting things from your partner. Expectations leads to disappointments.  Rather, appreciate what you have and live with it. Being contented makes you happy.

But of course, if the relationship really does not simply work for both of you, don’t be too sad because it only means that out there, someone else is waiting for you. Someone you can call  Mr. Right, your one true love.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog about love and relationship. Please also like my FB page @alln1page for some interesting and informative posts with lots of good vibes.

How to be successful? 

Three attitudes we must have to be successful  
□Believe in yourself

The most common attitude of people everywhere in the world is having that lack of confidence. Even before knowing the task or what work to do you already think it’ll be difficult and you cannot do it. This attitude must be change, believe in yourself and think positive. Take it as a challenge. Never put on your mind the difficulties, understand first the assigned task for you, read the instruction again and again, understand every word of it and start to do it step by step. Just do it. You’ll never know how good you are without trying. 
□Make space for curiosity  

Don’t limit your knowledge. Always make space for something new. Keep on  learning even while already working. Don’t only focus on what you know. Read other staff and learn other ideas. 
□Work Hard

Many of us already asked this, “What is the best job for me”? Most people answers, “Do what you want and what makes you happy”. For me, this is wrong.  Think of those successful people who started as a janitor, waitress, maids, etc. Do you think they wanted that and happy while on that job? Mostly, No. They chose that because they know that’s the way to reach their goals. Working hard is one of the best investments you can have. If you don’t start then you will not have what you wanted for your future. Understand that Life is a struggle sometimes.

The best Spaghetti meatballs recipe 

​This Spaghetti meatballs is ideal for the whole family. Sometimes we really have hard time feeding our kids and we can only make simple pasta for them with just plain adjusted taste of tomato sauce and sausage. When I was making this recipe I never thought it will be that good that even my 2year old daughter really loved it and even asked for more. I and my partner just simply love this and we really enjoyed the taste. With the perfect cooked pasta, and the combination of the sauce and the very yummy meatballs, it makes it really the best. Hope you will make it too and love as much. I’m happy to share my recipe. Enjoy!

Malapascua Island


Philippines is one of the best places to go for diving; clear salt water, beautiful corals, sighting colorful fishes, sharks, rays and a lot more. There are few Islands to visit within the many Islands in the country and some of them are still undiscovered. One of the most popular for diving spot is Malapascua, a very small island situated 6.8kilometer across the northern part of Cebu. However, Malapascua is still a part of Daanbantayan, Cebu.

Malapascua is popular for diving with the Thresher Sharks, at a diving site called Monad Shoal. Higher chance to see them is during the dawn so really getting up early for diving. My German Fiance really loves to Dive and enjoy seeing the beauty of under nature. Featured picture by the way is from the other Guy there who was diving with him, so I credit it to him. With the Island’s popular Thresher sharks he really was so excited to see them. And that was the only reason why we chose this place for a vacation. Though it’s only my fiance’s hubby and not mine, I of course also enjoyed my time there because of its wide white beach. So regarding Diving I only get an information from him. And you know what, Thresher Sharks is actually not the only reason why Divers must visit Malapascua. For him, after few times seeing the Thresher Sharks underwater it already loses some excitement, its still exciting because not all the time you’ll see them around but not as exciting as the first time. BUT, knowing these little Island there called Gato Island, is awesome beautiful and worth to stay more days to discover this little paradise. Yes, I know I sounds like I have been there underwater but I can still remember exactly how my fiance looked like when He went back to our Hotel room, so happy and glowing.

Gato Island




According to Him, Gato Island is the most beautiful dive spot he have ever seen, so far. It is an hour boat ride from Malapascua, so normally you will have two dives in there. Going there in the morning then have the first dive, stay in the boat for lunch then have the second dive before heading back the the main island. So I would say it is really so much worth to visit if you love diving.

How to get to Malapascua: 

From Manila. There is a daily direct flight from NAIA to Cebu International Airport, from there take a taxi to bring you to the Northern Bus Terminal. From there you have to take a bus or a Van to Maya Port. Take a note of this, taking a Bus is not so easy, it takes 6-7 hours because of it’s different route than a Van and also does more stops, so I recommend you to take a Van for almost same price (100 php) but only takes 3-4hrs. Both will take you straight to Maya Port where you can take a boat that brings you to Malapascua Island for 80 pesos each.

From Cebu Piers. Make it easy by just taking a taxi to Northern Bus Termnial and choose a Van to take you to Maya Port which takes 3-4hrs for 100 Php. Then from Maya Port take a boat to Malapascua for 80 pesos each.

For accommodation there will be no really problem if you are planning to go there on low season, I am quite sure you can easily book by walking in. But of course to make sure most especially during peak season, you can book in advance thru any different agencies you prefer online.

Being there in general was good. Nice swimming time and enjoyed walking at the nice white sand beach aside from Diving and Boat Tour during the day. Sitting along the beach with a nice cocktail while watching the stars in the evening. The locals were very accommodating. We arrived there without any idea where our Hotel is located, one guy approached us and offer to take us the way there, without expecting anything in return but only offering us some packages of what you can do to enjoy while being there. And of course we contacted him later for a day trip to Kalanggaman, another little beautiful island which I will be posting soon too.

I just have some reminders before getting there. One is to make sure you have enough cash because most accomodations/restaurants and other things you may need there takes cash, and NO ATM, neither in Maya. Also, there will be days that the power is off all day long so also make sure all of your gadget are fully charged, and as much as possible while there is a running water, keep freshen up yourself because when the power is cut means there is no running water too, and it’s really kind of hot in there.

Crispy Pork Sizzling Sisig (with a side soup)

Pork sisig is one of my most favorites Filipino Dish. Usually its made out of Pig’s head.
But in my recipe I used Liempo (Pork Belly), which I prefer and of course for my German partner who also prefer better part of a Pig. Cooking Pork Sisig takes a bit of time and a hard work, and not everyone can make it good, it needs your full attention and the right timing: To tender the meat, to fry it into perfection for the meat not to be too hard and the skin is crispy enough but not overcooked, to saute all those ingredients for a good aroma and a right timing to mix it before eating so the egg wil not be overcooked. But all those efforts, once done well, is all worth it!
In the Philippines, it is served with rice for a meal but mostly Sisig can be found in every bar which is served as “Pulutan” in a hot sizzling plate and it is really good with a cold beer. For us, we don’t have sizzling plate so we just kept it in the pan. We of course eat it with rice, and I think a hot soup on the side made it all perfect.
So here I share with you my Crispy Pork Sisig with a hot soup.

750grams Pork Belly (with Skin)
2Tbsp. Butter
4Tbsp. Diced White Onion
2Tbsp. Diced Ginger
2Tbsp. Diced Bell Pepper (Red or Green)

Ground Black Pepper

-Boil the pork belly with a water enough to cover the meat, put salt, black pepper and garlic powder into it. Once its boiling, lower the heat to simmer for 45mins.
-Remove the meat from the water and let it dry a bit. Refrigerate for 8hrs or overnight. Keep the water (pork stock) for the soup later.
-Slice and separate the Skin of the meat. Deep fry the meat until golden brown. Let the skin fry longer until it becomes crispy.
-Slice the meat into a very small cubes. Also the Skin but keep it separated.
-Heat a pan and melt the butter. Add on the Ginger, Onions and Bell Pepper. Becareful not to burn it, keep stirring until you think the aroma has come out.
-Add liver spread and mix it well.
-Add the sliced meat. Continue mixing it in a medium heat. Put 1 Full tsp. Salt and little bit of ground black pepper.
-Add the Mayonnaise and chili. Put a pinch of sugar on it.  Mix well and let it stay again for another minute. Taste and adjust with salt and sugar according to your taste.
-Heat up  sizzling plate and transfer the cooked pork sisig into it while it’s heating continuosly, topped with the crispy Pork Skin and Egg. Remove from heat and put Sliced lime or Kalamansi on the side.
-Mix it while the Sizzling plate is still hot.
(For those who does not have a Sizzling Plate, just keep it in the pan, once the pork sisig is done, spread the Crispy Pork Skin and topped with an Egg. Make sure it’s hot enough for the egg to be cooked a bit.)

For the soup as side dish:
-Pour pork stock in a caserole.  (The water you used to boiled the pork for your Sisig)
