First 40

Once I read from a friend's Facebook post: "during the first 40 years of our lives, we are busy working and earning as much money as we could... and the next 40, spending all the money to keep ourselves healthy."

I think that there's much truth to that even if I am not even close to the first half of the years the author was talking about. Well, at least that is how I'd like to count my age.

As convinced as I am, there has been a lot of attempts to keep myself healthy for the last 10 years. It is good to know that there were times when I almost got there but really they did not last long enough to make me spend the first 40 years of my life staying healthy.

Right now, I am sitting on a bench watching people who are working hard jogging, running, biking and walking. Some of them look less than 40 and some way beyond 40. I'd like to think that whether they are on the first half or second, they are doing this to not spend all the hard earned money for the health related expenses. That's the same reason I am watching them now. I am resting and spending a bit of "me time" before I head back home from a 45 minutes jog-walk. I hope I can do this more often and be able to say my own version of that Facebook post later.

Madagascar 3, now showing!

I can't wait to see the Madagascar 3! Gab couldn't stop watching the first two movies and he's sure having fun. Sometimes he pretends that he's Alex; he calls us "steak"!! Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted will surely be another great movie date for our family.

Next step: book tickets!

Taste Buds Satisfied!

It's sinful (in a health sinful way) but it was so good ,alright?! I have been craving for Tokwa't Baboy for weeks now and today I just could not resist it any longer.

Tokwa't Baboy is one of the family's favorite and I wish to share the simple recipe and easy steps for those who might want to indulge once in a while.

1 kg pork belly (some people like it with pig's ears but pork belly is sinful enough for me)
4-6 pcs firm tofu
1 tsp whole pepper corn
salt to taste

1 1/2 cups vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 tbsp sugar
green onions
chili (for those who like it spicy)

1. Put water, pork belly, pepper corn and salt in a cooking pot. Boil meat until tender. Slice into bite-sized pieces.
2. Deep fry tofu until color turns golden brown and outer texture is somewhat crispy. Cut into cubes.
3. Mix vinegar and soy sauce and let it boil. Add sugar. Let it cool down for a bit and add chopped onions and chili.
4. Serve with rice or arroz caldo. Enjoy!

I wonder what will tickle my craving taste buds next.
