Gearing Up For A Very Long Weekend

That is right! We are gearing up for a very extended weekend as the provincial government declared Monday, 28 July to be a holiday for the entire province of Bulacan, making way for post-Iglesia ni Cristo Centennial clean-up operations. As we all know, Tuesday is also declared a holiday in observance of the end of Ramadan, or Eid Al -Fitr. Now what to do with this unexpected amount of free time in our hands?

Some of the items included in our 4-day weekend plan are: catching up on my blog backlogs, tackling an almost-2-weeks worth of laundry, finishing chores at home and tidying up some of our stuff that accumulated in the living room. I do hope I can also catch up on much-needed zzz, and manage to catch the President’s SONA on Monday.

The long vacay is also a perfect opportunity for me to review the little man in time for his very first major exam in school. This new mum of a schooler is more anxious than the little man about the exam, but I am sure with the right amount of preparation and studying I can get him ready in time for their exams in the mid of August. I also hope the little guy can finish some of our worksheets at home, as well as read a couple of the new books we got for him recently.

This 4-day weekend sure is a very welcome blessing and I do hope we can enjoy it and make use of it to the fullest.  Grin

Make Your Dish Meatier With The New Porksavor™

announcement, products, food, tips + tricks

Filipinos love food with strong meaty flavors, which is why saucy, soupy or stir-fried dishes would usually be accentuated with pork meat or broth. It is for this reason that Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) came up with a new product called Porksavor™ All-in-One Seasoning.

Porksavor™ is made from natural pork meat extract and bone broth, complete with spices and seasonings to bring out the deliciousness of home-cooked dishes. The new Porksavor™ is available in 8-gram packs for only PhP 2.00 Suggested Retail Price (SRP). It is truly an affordable way to draw pork flavor goodness in dishes without the cholesterol.
