Gold Town Sushi and Korean BBQ

March 09, 2017

A few weeks ago, we ate at Gold Town Sushi and Korean BBQ to celebrate my husband’s birthday. As I recall they have excellent sushi on our first visit so we ordered a California sushi roll to try something new for our palette. 

Galbi Short Ribs

Ultimate Chocolate Ganache

As always, Charles’ had noodles, I had beef soup and my husband had Galbi Short Ribs. Though he is not a huge fan of fats around the meat which I really liked as I thought it adds flavor to any types of meat. For dessert, I bought Ultimate Chocolate Ganache from Walmart.

Charles' Cards

February 15, 2017

Being able to drive the car gives me leisure to shop around at the stores and end up buying things that I don’t normally buy on a shopping trip. Lately, I have been infatuated with buying decorative boxes from Tuesday Morning and Burlington even though I could have used some shoe boxes or plastic tubs to put cards in it. I thought it was lovely so I bought one to keep Charles’ cards and he has lots of them already even for his age. Most of his cards he got are all from his aunts even with no occasion he gets them as well. 

Decorative Box

Charles' Cards

Growing up as a teen I longed for someone to give me a card as I thought its very sweet but I didn’t get any. The box does not suits his personality so when someone asks he’ll always remember that his mom bought it for him.

Good Morning America Is More Fun to Watch

The Today Show, has always been my morning show over the years. Until I used Viggle, I realized Good Morning America, is more fun to watch than Today, based on my daily viewing routine. GMA anchors are more vibrant, they laughed so hard when something’s funny without thinking they are on television. Unlike Today, the way I see it the anchors looks apprehensive to talk on certain topics, afraid to let loose on national television. Hey when you have fun don’t be afraid to get up from your seat and dance to the music that’s what GMA anchors does. So if you want a brighter day to start your morning GMA is by far the best morning show you could watch on television. 

Aside from GMA I am into Food Paradise re-runs and  Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern on Travel Channel. Watching Bizarre Foods featured in Singapore yesterday was the reason we ate at Lin’s Garden for Valentine’s Day. Speaking of Valentine’s Day, how did you celebrate despite the rain and cold temperature?

Saxophone Sheet Music

So if you love the saxophone and music in general you really need to look at the selection of sheet music available at the Musician's Friend, at this link With a wide array of style and types of music including jazz, show tunes, blues and popular music you are sure to find the music that trips your trigger.

Magnolia Ice Cream

January 30, 2017

I usually splurge on seafood every time I go to the Asian store but this time around I got Magnolia ice cream. Yeah! I bought 2 tubs of ice cream and it is very pricey compared the ones that I usually get at Walmart. I could have bought 2 lbs of shrimp, 4 crabs and 2 large squid for the price itself. Heck! When I go to the Asian store my hubby always told me get what you want, so I did! Trying different flavors other than vanilla my favorite by the way :) was just an imagination how these ice cream would taste like when growing up in the Philippines as we could not afford to buy in a big container. We would only get the ones in the cone during fiesta or when someone is selling in our area. Aside from ice cream, I also got sweet potato, banana and pork belly which is perfect to make adobo. When I saw Bizarre Foods, Delicious Destinations, with Andrew Zimmern, on Travel Channel featured in the Philippines, I learned I could add oyster sauce when making adobo. Tried it few weeks ago and it tasted really good. No need to add brown sugar to sweeten up the sauce, oyster sauce tastes delicious!

Sweet Potato


As of today, I cooked Menudo using pork belly as I loved it’s fat itself and this will be my meal for a few days during the day. Aside from cooking dishes I also shopped at Tuesday Morning and found a box that was on clearance. I think it is cute so I bought it.
