I won in Security Bank Online Photo Contest Week 4!

Joining online photo contest is such a reward specially when your entry is picked and judged to be the winner. 
Taking photographs is one of my hobbies, I take photos of almost anything and everything I see. 
Few years back I was able to capture a photo of me and my kids one sunset afternoon at Subic Bay Boardwalk. 
It was a planned Friday afternoon, packed my tripod, some snack, a blanket and my Canon point and shoot camera. 
We picked a spot and waited for the sun to set. 
I set the camera on timer in multiple shots and we hurriedly run forward. We had like more than 10 pictures until I finally decided to picked this one and did some minor editing.
Adjusted the saturation level for a good burst of color.

Bounty Fresh Honey Garlic Ready to Fry Chicken


Bounty Fresh Honey Garlic Chicken
P150.00/pack
 SM Supermarket


I have been seeing this product at the meat section of SM Supermarket and bought a pack last weekend. A pack weighs about a kilo and a quarter, it is tightly sealed in a vacuum plastic wrap with the product label. 
At back instruction on how to cook, it is best cook in a turbo broiler but I prefer deep fry cooking. 
When I open the sealed packaging there was still marinated sauce inside it. 
I deep fry the chicken from a high heat to a low heat until the inside will fully cooked. Cooked it for about 30-45 minutes until the skin was brown and crunchy. 
Finished product, the meat was tender and can taste the garlic flavor. It can serve 5-6 person. 

A pack cost P150.00

Have you tried Bounty Fresh Marinated Chicken?


National Bookstore BestBuy Card Holder

Finally I have this awesome card organizer from National Bookstore Best Buys!
Over the past months I was meaning to get this card organizer which I can put in all my cards such as the ATM's, SSS, my PRC license card, and few Reward points cards. 
I have been using different wallets for all my cards, including some cash and receipts which I keep everytime I buy, specially receipts I needed for the promos and contest (of course!hehe) 

Yesterday, Tay dropped by at National Bookstore and got me this 20 pages back-to-back plastic card holder with synthetic leather embossed leaves holder.



It is like a notebook with metal pin at the front cover to indicate the front leaf of the holder.
The embossed leaf design goes in perfectly with the color of the material. 


I initially organized my cards which I often use, they occupied half of the pages and I still have 10 pages more free of space. 
Now I won't be having a hard time checking, looking and sometimes thought of losing a certain card when I am in-line at the cashier for payment. 
Everything is organized.
I could not give you guys the price for this one because it was a gift of love! ;)
(I'll update when I get the chance haha!)

Time for you to organize your cards too. :)

I saw this photo on Twitter posted by MMDA, a part of the Tipo to Tarlac SCTEX road collapsed and is not passable at this time. Due to non-stop rain structural roads are starting which flood water sips and soften that causes this part of the road to collapsed.

Typhoon Maring and Moonsoon rains combined for several days now greatly affects the major parts of the Philippines and are now flooded. Flood waters coming from everywhere damaged properties and familes are affected. 

 Here in Olongapo some areas are still flooded although for now rains just stopped. Hope everyone is safe and better stay home and avoid going out if not needed.

Hi there!
   Another day to start our week. How was your weekend, was it a good one? Our typical weekend was house chores and doing school works for another week, plus this week are my kid's scheduled major exams that are before we hit the long weekend Ramadan Holiday. 

I accidentally met up with my friend Hanna at Harbor Point Mall when I was locating the concierge area, and she bought me a new pair of Charles & Keith red moccasin shoes. 👠👍💖




C&K

Charles & Keith Red Moccasin 
It's their new arrival and cost P1995.00.
plus It comes with the new edition Charles & Keith catalog.

I'll be wearing this paired with jeans and a shirt or even shorts and V-neck cut plain shirt. I love how comfy are the materials used especially the rubber soles.

Thank you, Mareng Hanna! 💗
