Coco Jam and Peanut Butter

litratongpinoy

Matagal-tagal ko ding hinanap ito kaya laking tuwa ko nung matagpuan ko at matikmang muli: coco jam. Sa totoo lang, noong ako ay batang paslit, ayoko nito kasi mabaho, lalo na yung kending makunat na nakabalot sa puting papel, Yuck talaga! Amoy langis ng niyog.

Sige na nga, heto na ang paboritong almusal namin: tinapay na may manipis na palamang coco jam at/o peanut butter. Kelangan yung me buo-buong mani at mamantikang peanut butter ha (argh!)

Coco Jam, Peanut Butter and Bread for Breakfast

Bakit nga ba manipis? Kasi matamis ang coco jam at dapat manipis lang para di magsawa agad.

Siyempre di pwedeng walang kape.

Ayan, kumpleto na ang araw naming mag-asawa :)  Tsalap!

Coco jam, peanut butter and wheat bread are all from Pan de Manila. No, this is not a paid ad though a big white paper bag full of pandesal is very much welcome, lol.

Can’t Look at My Photos

Looking at the pics I have uploaded taken from last Friday’s post-Christmas celebration with mommy bloggers I can’t help but cringe when I see myself. I have grown immensely. Horizontally. Ugh!

I have been walking by this kiosk in the supermarket where I see boxes of nutritional supplements and weight loss capsules. I am very much tempted to get some adipex pills  for me.

I know I need to get back to my early morning rounds but my sprained ankle prevented me from picking up from where I left off. The holiday eating galore didn’t help either.

I seriously need to keep the weight off.

I feel sad going through this and I hope I won’t submit myself to opening that container with my bite size chocolate candy bars, :D

Pork Humba (Braised Pork)

Ang humba, bow.

Masarap itong kainin, lalo na kapag niluto sa uling ala slow cooking.

Malambot, malinamnam, masarap at mabango.

Amoy pa  lang, ulam na! Tara, kain tayo :)

Gaining the Weight Back

Our only son has not been eating well lately and I noticed that he has lost weight and he needs to gain the weight back. Yeah, I know, I should be the one losing the weight, not he.

Anyway, I thought about doing a little scare tactic with him. He was once hospitalized due to a severe asthma attack and he didn’t like to be in the hospital.

I asked him if he likes to go back to the hospital if he gets sick. He looked at me and said “No.”

That solved the problem somehow and he is back to his having his normal eating portions, plus extra snacks and milk before bed.

Oh yeah, one more thing, it is very, very expensive to get sick and be hospitalized especially for those without Medicare supplement cards.

I know.

Tawilis

Isang platitong tawilis

tawilis

Ito ay isang platito ng maliliit na isda na pilit na pagsasaluhan ng isang pamilyang hikahos sa buhay. Mabuti kung may ganitong pantawid gutom, ang iba kasi kuntento na sa noodles na lalagyan ng maraming tubig para masabaw.

Ganyan, ganyan kahirap ang buhay sa maraming mga Pilipino.

Hindi ko mawari kung bakit hindi gawan ng paraan ang napakalaking suliranin sa gutom. Ang mga pagkaing tulad ng talbos ng kamote, malunggay at iba pang dahon ay napakadaling patubuin at napakasustansiya. Mura pa kung ito ay bibilhin o kaya libre kung ito ay itatanim sa bakuran.

Sabagay, kung sa usaping numero o dami ng tao ang pag-uusapan, PANALO tayo sa bilis ng pagdami ng mga Pinoy na animo mga (huwag ko na nga lang ituloy ang sasabihin ko). Pero dahil dito TALO tayo sa kalidad ng pamumuhay.

Maiba ako, ilang toneladang tawilis kaya ang kayang bilhin ng $20,000 perang ipinambayad sa isang magarbong hapunan?

P.S. gusto ko ito kung me sukang me sili. Ikaw?
