This recipe is very easy to make. This is an ilonggo style recipe and I didn't really follow it to the letter. But it's still yummy.
Mcj bought me 5 kilos of sticky rice and I have to use it lest it goes to waste so at least once a month I think of a recipe that I can use sticky rice. So far, I've made this three times now and nobody has complained.
What's in it:
You can put seafood and pork in it too, if you want.

Recently, I have been craving of filipino food. Any food at all. Remember, I am not counting calories or thinking of any forms of diet here. It's just to eat something that I really like and will fill me up.
With dried fish that my friend gave me. Already cooked as I have not really braved up to cook some at home because of the stench.

I found this article on the local paper a while back and I think it is worth sharing. The article is exercising using a barre. Mind you, I have to check what really a barre is. I know that it is a bar but why a different spelling. Now, I know. Anyway, it's for toning the bottom. So anyone out there who wants a tight bottom, here's for you. Thanks to our local paper by the way.
These exercises are quite easy. I don't have a bar at home so I just use anything that is permanent to support me while performing these. The number two item is my favourite so far. It really burns my legs and thighs.

I dabbled on yoga recently, until everything got busy and hectic that I have lapsed for more than a week now.
How did I start? With the help of youtube of course. I've come across a video of yoga for begginers and I quite like it. I searched other videos of the same yogi and did them too. I recently started the 30 day challenge and I have yet to embark on day 5.
Aside from the movement that I quite like - it stretches me of course. I also like that it pushes me and my endurance. I still haven't quite master the art of breathing yet. I have problem sometimes - I feel that I was not breathing at all.
If interested, try this one.

the school was selling father's day presents but the tatapilla and I agreed that since we already bought dad his present last weekend, we only need to make him breakfast.
recently, he has developed liking to french toast ( with tomato sauce, he said). so we are going to make some tomorrow.
I have not actually made them at home. I know they are simple enough to make. bread, eggs, milk, oil for frying and sugar for dusting... and fruit for toppings.
I learned that french toast is also called eggy bread, german toast, gypsy bread or spanish toast.
overtime, french toast has several variations and wikipedia said that the hong-long style french toast was documented as the top-50 most delicious food.
i tell you about mine next time.

Ever tried a peanut butter ice cream? The first time I tried it, it was in a stick and so yummy. I thought I was hooked and I say yes. But being not so fond of sweets, I don't crave it.
I was at the shops and thinking of something new and tried this. Hmmmm.. didn't go down well with my Tatapilla. I tried it myself and it's just not right. It didn't taste like the other brand. I think, I'll give this a ditch, thaw it out and pour it down the bin.
