My Own Version of "E G G R O L L S"

Hello there!

Today, I kinda felt I wanted to eat something I could just make in minutes and something I could cook straight from what I have left from the fridge. 

I was watching this show on TV where they ate and ate so I kinda felt hungry and so I wanted to make my own version of egg rolls.

I really love to eat at Korean restaurants and their egg rolls always take my breath away. Hahaha.
So here goes... Originally they used Spam for the meat, onions, tomatoes, carrots, etc. which they altogether put into the beaten eggs.
In my case, I used some longganisa we had for breakfast the other day and put in some onions & tomatoes.

First, you gotta heat the pan and put butter. Then you cook all the mixture into the pan and put some rice on top before you start folding the egg rolls.

And then there you have it! My very own version of easy-to-cook Egg Rolls. :)

Visita Iglesia: Goal Met!

You may be wondering why I have photos of churches and 7 names of them listed under, "Visita Iglesia".

Well, let me begin by defining Visita Iglesia
This was one nice painting I found when I stared up the ceiling of a church. I don't remember where I saw this though. Haha.
Visita Iglesia, otherwise known as the Seven Churches Visitation is a traditional practice observed by almost all Roman Catholic Filipinos during the Holy Week.

Between the months of March and April, the church announces the week when the so-called "Holy Week" would fall. Starting on Thursday to Saturday on that said week, most Filipinos would go to churches and remember how Jesus Christ died on the cross to save mankind. 

It's that day when all establishments are closed except for some gasoline stations. [I heard establishments usually close on Thursdays and resume work on a Friday or on a Saturday. So you better stock lotsah food in the house.]

It's also that sad and lonely day when you seldom see people walking on the streets except those places near churches and bus terminals [some people just need to go back home, you know].

However, it's also that day when you get to just rest at home or go to beach resorts to unwind with family and friends. 

As for me, we decided to do the Seven Churches Visitation for today as our penance during the Lenten Season. I'd like to take some time remembering how Someone so selfless sacrificed Himself for all of us. 

It's one pretty long weekend for most Filipinos including me, of course! Hope you have that meaningful weekend. :)

Summer Vacay, All the Way!!!

Where to this summer? Hmmm... To the beach? 

If you're thinking of clear and pristine waters and really breathtaking views, why not spend your vacation in Palawan?

Aside from witnessing 1 of the New 7 Wonders of Nature-- the Puerto Prinsesa Underground River, the things to do there are endless.

Seriously, it's like every spot you see in El Nido makes you feel like you're really away from work. It's just way relaxing and fun to be in Palawan.

When you go for island hopping, you get to visit at least 4 breathtaking islands. I remember one island was named after the snake as its 'sand bar' resembled that of a snake during low tide. Getting late in afternoon and the sand bars slowly disappeared.

We stayed in this pension house where the rates were pretty reasonable considering the ambience and its proximity to the beach line.

During the night, you can walk the busy streets with friends and enjoy the restaurants some foreigners [who have decided to stay in Palawan for good] established in time.

Enjoy the rest of the photos and I hope I somehow gave you that summer-get-away idea!
