Philippine Red Cross "Every Blood Donation is a Gift of Life"

A month ago I contacted the Philippine Red Cross Olongapo Chapter to ask for an update regarding the upcoming Blood Donors campaign and I was able to get some posters and invitation letter for us here at work to join and participate in the said event.

After my room to room campaign dissemination I was able to encourage some students and co-workers who committed their willingness to donate blood.

Today, July 25,2014 was the day of the blood donation at the Olongapo City Convention Center across the Philippine Red Cross Olongapo Chapter.

Hundreds of people lined-up to participate, including people from my work. I was supposed to donate this year but due to some technicalities I was not qualified this year, maybe next year... depending on my hormones.

A certificate was given to all who participated and a photo souvenir at the PRC Blood donor photo booth and also some snacks were given too.

Too everyone who participated Kudos to all of you... for saving someone's Life that in need of blood!

Good Job Philippine Red Cross Olongapo Chapter and to Chairman Dick Gordon.

Pork Sinigang using Del Monte Tomato Sauce

Before I got off work yesterday I planned on what to cook for dinner, and since it was a bit cold and gloomy Sinigang is the best dish we can have last night and also it is our old time favorite dish.

I bought a kilo of Pork Kasim( back portion of the pig).
1kilo of Pork Kasim cut into cubes, boiled in rice water wash until tender with the onion cut in
quarters P170.00
1 large piece of raddish P21.00
10 pieces okra P5.50
KangKong stalks and leaves P9.50
1 large red onion P6.00
4 pieces finger chilis P6.00
1 pack Knorr Sinigang mix with gabi (taro) P18.50
1/2 cup Del Monte tomato sauce P10.00
salt and pepper to taste.

When the pork cube slices becomes tender dumped in the raddish, next is okra, the chili and cover. Lastly, pour in the sinigang powder mix and the tomato sauce then the salt and pepper. Then last is the Kangkong stalks and leaves and cover, remove from heat and viola dinner is ready. Paired with steaming white rice with pandan.
Total expenses: P250.00 good for 8person.

A new twist from the traditional way of cooking, experimenting is cool specially when you can get something healthy out of it. My kids enjoyed it even more and knowing they get the rich and benefit of lycopene... I am a happy Mommy.

Try using Del Monte tomato sauce in every cooking dishes.

Greenwich Full Pan Lasagna Prize

A couple of weeks ago I received a notification on Twitter about me winning in the RT Greenwich twitter post of

I am one of the three lucky twitter winners who retwitted the Greenwich Video tweet.

The message said that I won a full pan Lasagna from Greenwich. Informing the text message that I will be claiming the prize at their store in Harbor Point mall yesterday.

Upon the coordination I made with Mr. Kael we had the lasagna for dinner last night. A full pan size of Greenwich Lasagna Supreme cost about P749.00 and it was good. The taste was yummy although we had it ordered ahead of time, the pasta was a little cold. Full pan size can serve 8-10 people. My kids enjoyed last night's dinner, which made me happy.

My day with Caronia Kwik-Dry Cuticle Conditioner

Hi there!

Today I am posting about this awesome beauty product i have and been using for more than months now.
It's the Caronia Kwik-Dry & Cuticle Conditioner. This small bottle of beauty goodness can bring glorious beauty nail care for just a single drop.

A couple of days ago I removed my tan shade nail polish and decided to give my nails some rest to breathe and left it un polish. This morning after taking a shower I saw my nail beds all of them were dry and flaky. The not so beauty situation!

Here comes the Caronia Cuticle Conditioner, a single dip in the solution using the brush can moisturize all of your nails. The liquid solution is like an oil based solution with no smell, no stingy feel, very light and works fast. See the before and after photos for comparison.

A 30ml bottle of Caronia Kwik-Dry Cuticle conditioner cost P44.95 in the market, but this one I got for free as a prize in one of the giveaways I joined.
So cool!

Very useful for a nail care.

Choochoo Cake pies

It is my first time to have a taste of this ChooChoo choco cake pies with vanilla fillinh by Lemon Square.
Single pack contains two pies and you can buy it in 10 packs per bag. This is actually my kids favorite and I sneak a pack :).
The taste is quiet good, the chocolatey feel and the taste it's a thumbs up for me. Although a pack is a bit "bitin" I could have enjoy two or three packs for a snack.
I know now why my kids love this brand of choco pie, i sometime see them having it as a dessert after dinner.
Good job for Lemon Square for adding this variety to their line.

A bag of 10 pack cost about P55-p60 depending on the grocery shop you will buy it. We normally go to Puregold Harbor Point Mall.
