A Box Full of Goodies

My father sent a "balikbayan box" last month and it just arrived last week. He asked me to get our "part" from the goodies he sent from our home in Baler. He's currently working as an Overseas Filipino Worker in Dubai. He sent 1 big pack of Nido Milk (2500grams + 250grams FREE), Sunmaid Raisins, Honey, Pringles, M&M chocolates, Kitkat wafer chocolate, Galaxy chocolates, Nutella spread, Liption Earl Grey Tea (as I requested), Date, Liption Original Flavor tea and other things. He's very thoughtful and generous in sending things to us especially to my daughter and my little sister Cynthia. Thanks Tay! 

Right now there's a big issue regarding the Balikbayan boxes because of the random physical inspections being implemented by the Bureau of Customs. OFWs took their rage to social media about the BOC's inspection and implementing tax to the balikbayan boxes. For Filipinos, especially the OFWs, "balikbayan boxes" symbolize the hardwork and sacrifices of the OFW for their families. Its already part of the tradition to send goodies to their families, wrapping each item with care and love.

After the controversy migrant group declared August 28 as "Zero Remittance Day" and encourage the OFWs to participate as a protest to stop the random inspections and implementing tax to the balikbayan boxes. 

*According to the Bureau of Customs, a box contents must not exceed 500$ in value and banned/prohibited items like firearms, explosives, prohibited drugs, ammunition, pornographic or  gambling materials should not be included in your packages. 

Honey is Good for the Health

Honey is produced by bumblebees by converting the nectar by a process of regurgitation and evaporation which is stored in the beehive.

Honey is used in foods and beverages as a sweetener and flavoring but it could also be used in medical tradition to treat ailments.

Whenever my father send his "balikbayan box", he never fails to send a jar of honey to us all the way from Dubai. He always reminds us to feed at least a teaspoon of honey to the kids (my daughter and my little sister) because of Honey being known to have health benefits.

Here are some of the health benefits from honey:

*Honey + Warm water could improve scalp from dandruff and itching

*Honey + Vinegar use for self detox and ailment of arthritis

*Honey + Lemon use in weight loss diet and treatment of cough

*Honey + Cinnamon use for ailments of hair loss and bad breath

*Honey + Milk/Yogurts could promote good health,improve digestion and bowel movement and induce sleep

**Honey could also be used in treatment of cuts, burns and minor wounds,boost energy, reduce allergy symptoms, good antioxidant, good for relief of hangovers, sore throats and alot more. So make sure to have stock of honey at home.

WARNING: Honey or any processed food containing honey should not be given to children below 1 year. Baby's digestive system is not yet acidic enough to inhibit toxin from the bacterial botulinum spores that some honey contains.The bacteria usually thrive in soil in dust that could contaminate honey.

When kids get older, the digestive tract is able to handle the botulinum spores and prevent them from growing.

Pako Salad/ Ensaladang Pako

Pako is one the the delicasy or special dish prepared by the locals of Baler where I grew up. I remember my childhood days whenever I go on picnic with my friends, we always have pako salad on our dish. Pako is a fiddlehead fern listed among several kinds of edible fern sold fresh in local market at a fairly cheap price. Pako is abundant during rainy season only 10 pesos per bundle.

bunch of Pako
pomelo or salted egg
tomatoes (sliced)

For dressing:
sukang puti/calamansi
bagoong (fish sauce)

Cut the fern into 4 inches and discard the tough stems. Wash with clean water and blanch in boiling water. Drain the hot water and drop the fern in icy water to keep it crunchy. Drain and arrange pako in a bowl.

Slice the tomatoes and onions.
Peel pomelo/salted egg and cut them into desired pieces.

Combine all the ingredients together with the dressing. 

Serve and Enjoy!!


Home cooked Pancit Bihon Guisado

I am craving for Pancit Bihon (Rice Noodles) so I asked my mother to buy the ingredients. For our dinner I cooked “Pansit Bihon Guisado (Sautéed Rice Noodles) and for the ingredients I used:

• Cooking oil

• Minced garlic
• Sliced onion
• Soy sauce
• Boiled chicken meat then cut into strips
• Cabbage cut into big strips
• Carrots cut into strips
• Chicken broth
• Kintsay or cilantro
• 1//4 kilo of Rice Noodles
• Pepper

The processes are very simple and easy to do. I boiled the chicken until tender then cut into strips while I set aside the stock. In a pan I sautéed the garlic in cooking oil then add onions, chicken strips and cooked for 3 minutes. Then I add the carrots, cabbage and cilantro. I also add soy sauce and chicken broth when the veggies are almost half-cooked. When the veggies are already half cooked, I remove it from heat and set aside leaving the sauce and broth mixture. I added the rice sticks and cook until its tender. Lastly I added the veggies and mix with the cooked rice noodles then seasoned with pepper and fish sauce to taste.

Winning is my Passion

It was year 2013 when I first joined online promo when someone from my Facebook friend shared a page who was having their promo that time. It made me curious and try to join because I am bored at home. I just had my first child and a full time mom. At first I was hesitant to give my details and join all the giveaways/promo. But when I first got my prize from winning one of those giveaways it inspire me and I crave more for prizes. I tried my very best to know every details on how to join giveaways. I saw a friend posted an album of all his winnings which  makes me eager to join while I am taking care of my daughter at home. Since I also have my Nanay and my sisters with me to take care of my baby I have more time to spend in front of my computer. I searched the internet if there’s also international giveaways.I made my account on Twitter, IG, Tumblr, Pinterest, Linkedn and many more social media site aside from Facebook. From then on I already won lots of prizes from toiletries, mobile phones, tablet, cash, foods, GC, prepaid load and clothing. I started making albums of my winnings since 2014 not to brag my prizes but to make an inspiration that social media is not only for stalking people or wondering around websites.

Here are the albums I shared so far:

Want to know about Bitcoin?

What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. No one controls it. Bitcoins aren’t printed, like dollars or euros – they’re produced by people, and increasingly businesses, running computers all around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems.
It’s the first example of a growing category of money known as cryptocurrency.

What makes it different from normal currencies?
Bitcoin can be used to buy things electronically. In that sense, it’s like conventional dollars, euros, or yen, which are also traded digitally.
However, bitcoin’s most important characteristic, and the thing that makes it different to conventional money, is that it is decentralized. No single institution controls the bitcoin network. This puts some people at ease, because it means that a large bank can’t control their money.

Who created it?
A software developer called Satoshi Nakamoto proposed bitcoin, which was an electronic payment system based on mathematical proof. The idea was to produce a currency independent of any central authority, transferable electronically, more or less instantly, with very low transaction fees.

What is Satoshi? 
A Satoshi is the smallest fraction of a Bitcoin that can currently be sent: 0.00000001 BTC, that is, a hundredth of a millionth BTC.

100,000,000 Satoshi = 1 BTC (bitcoin)
1BTC= 13,049 Pesos (sometimes it goes down to 10-12k but it could also go higher)
