Royale Products

Have you heard of this new products? It is not really new but I am new to this! I came back to US carrying these. A total of 2 bags/packages containing a variety of Royale products. And my fave is the deodorant. I like the smell! I took some of the glutha pills which really makes your skin look nice. Your pores will get smaller. I also let my kids try the chocolate milk but my daughter is allergic to it. My son loves it. We use the Vit. C and grapeseed. They say it is good. We didn't use the other products but we shared it with friends and other people. In short, I sell them on eBay and to people I know. In fact, I have a friend that regularly orders the product. So what I do, I order it from my upline and she mails it via Phil Post office. It takes 15+ days to get here. I don't sell it for too much, I just let them pay the freight and lesser than the selling price online. So if you want to try them, check out ebay. A lot of sellers like me sell these. If the products suits you, keep using them. Stay fit and stay pretty!

Farewell Party

It was my niece's birthday when we celebrated my dad and uncle's birthday too! Plus, farewell party since it was our last 2-day stay at my hometown. We rented a big cottage and a karaoke, well Filipinos love to sing, and the 3 rooms for an overnight stay at Mimar's pool in Timoga. They have a beautiful cascading flowing water, like a mini water falls and the ambiance is really great! We invited our neighbors and friends. Our relatives were there and in-laws as well. Everyone did a good job preparing the venue and we had a blast.

My sister-in-law had this cake made for my dad. He cuts hair as well. He is so talented and he does a lot of things. I guess this is the barber cake and it's pretty! Everyone loved it. Every time I see this cake, it reminds me of the good times we were in Phi. Oh how I miss Philippines especially my family. Til we meet again!

Mandarin Plaza Hotel



It was our last hotel that we stayed with the family when we were in Philippines. I took my parents and my brothers' family to Cebu with us before flying to US. The hotel was nice and not that pricey. I love the free buffet breakfast so we always had a feast in the morning. They have soup, rice, meat, pasta and so much more! From Filipino food, Asian and Western kind. It was a memorable stay. We got to enjoy the swimming pool and the facilities as well. Also, we some relatives and friends and hung out a bit. Cebu has been a beautiful place for my husband so whenever he goes to Phi, he stays for a week there. We got to tour around the city at that time instead of the beaches since we already stayed at a beach resort when we arrived. Cebu has too many things to offer and plenty of nice places, accommodation to choose from. Til next time!

Roasted Pork Paksiw

Here is my Pork Paksiw. I used the left over Banana leaves roasted pork from my last post. I put a lot of garlic but a few bay leaves. This is really best with rice. Prepare a lot of rice servings because you might run out of it. Especially if you are eating with other people, you won't be able to notice that you have a lot already. Filipinos are fun to eat with and they're tempting too! You get to feed yourself more than usual. Anyway, below is the recipe from Panlasang Pinoy. I only put soy sauce and vinegar to mine and a bit of soda/sprite :D
 
"Paksiw is a term associated to a dish that is cooked with vinegar and garlic. Lechon Paksiw is a Filipino pork dish made from leftover roast pig which is known as “Lechon”. Aside from using roast pig, leftover Lechon kawali can also be used.Making this dish is a practical way to recycle leftover pork. Instead of reheating the same dish over and over, making paksiw out of it makes the pork more flavorful bringing more life to the ingredient."- Panlasang Pinoy
