A litle update

It's Fathers day and my dads girlfriend is here. My mother is from the Philippines, and so is my fathers girlfriend, so it's nice since I rarely speak to my mom to have someone to cook the food I grew up eating. My father is grilling and she is cooking some eggplant and we are going to have Halo - Halo! It had been a while, since I had Filipino food, I had some last week but before that it had been months! My dad is not from the Philippines but occasionally he will make some Philippine dishes that I like.

Other then that, today I am just going to be preparing some DIY posts together, typing them up, gathering materials, finishing them up and if I don't get lazy, making some graphics for the blog.

Only 5 more days till my boy comes to town! And only 2 more days till my clothes come in. Looks like this is gonna be a great week!

Hope everyone is having a great Fathers day and Happy Fathers Day to all the deserving Dads!

Here is a picture of my Father, and Grandfather

    1. I love Adobo! I cant seem to get it anywhere else that's like my mothers. They make it different, and I don't like it! What kind of sauce was it in, like what was the consistency?

    2. I dk. I was taught to marinade it in a mixture of soy sauce, vinegar and sugar. Add in a bay leaf and some pepper corns and let it simmer. But I've seen people add cornstarch in just to thicken the sauce :P

    3. That's the way! Or at least the way I like it, sometimes I get it at some restaurants and the sauce is thick, like brown gravy and is very garlic-y. I hate it! But that's the way I have always had it, with bay leafs in it! I am so glad that it's not just the way my mother made it and that it actually should be like that :)

    1. You should try it, a lot of my friends like there Lumpia which is like an eggroll and they usually like Chicken Adobo, which is delicious as well.

      I will be keeping up with your posts! :)
