Make Way for Bento!

Sorry for my semi-hiatus blogging but really, Ajay’s Bento theme for Lasang Pinoy excites me. Syempre, since back to being full-time career woman po ako ngayon, baon or binalot or bento now plays a major role in my life. That is, kung talagang gusto kong magtipid. So I hope you’ll join us for the 25th round and get creative.

I am not a professional cook. My only claim to having a culinary background is a short stint as my dad’s teen ‘sous chef’ in his carinderia ages ago. Dad ran small eateries since I was a young kid - serving standard ‘turo-turo’ food ranging from the likes of menudo, adobo, pritong isda, dinuguan, binagoongan, bopis, munggo, pinakbet and giniling to merienda fares like goto, ginataan, pancit bihon, halu-halo and saging con yelo.

My father, a farmer in his hometown before working his way to becoming an accountant, definitely influenced my cooking in a lot of ways than I thought. My siblings and I were raised in a backyard full of fruit trees and vegetable garden. We spent weekends and the summer breaks running around with ducks, chickens, goats and pigs. I had wonderful memories of gathering eggs, butchering chickens, selling vegetables and the sweet aroma of preserved fruits. But my love for art led me to a degree in Architecture. Just few months after getting my license, I went abroad and lived independently at age 23. Definitely no maid, no cook, and a totally different food culture. Along the way I met lots of friends and spent what seemed a lifetime learning new tricks and recipes.

Now living in Auckland, I am a work-from-home mum who juggles time between work, fun and family - in pursuit of work-life balance. No matter how busy I am, I love the idea of cooking for my family. My blog chronicles home cooking greatly influenced by life outside my home country from Southeast Asia to Beijing and Auckland. And most of the time, being busy also means easy (sometimes quick), affordable meals.

    a gamble though the RC toy enthusiasts don’t even care.

  3. If you are a hunting enthusiast, owning a pair of best-hunting boots is a necessity. Apart from your rifle, the right footwear is the sole gear that can improve your experience and increase your comfort while hunting. You will feel more comfortable and confident, regardless of the weather, terrain and time you spend in the outdoors hunting.

    Wearing the wrong hunting boots to hunt could ruin your hunting experience. You could experience both pain and discomfort. This could limit you to terrains you can hunt and how long you can hunt for. Getting the right hunting boots is vital in order to get the most out of your hunting activity.

    Furthermore, the outdoors will forever remain a foreign terrain. The weather conditions in our environments will vary from time to time. Therefore, having the right type of boots will help you adjust to these factors.

    However, there are several factors to be considered before purchasing the best hunting boots. These considerations should be taken seriously if you want to get the most comfortable and durable pair!
