Recipe: Phad Thai

Nakabili ako sa Singapore ng Instant Phad Thai as recommended by a Singapore based Thai client. Nag invite kasi siya ng dinner and served Phad Thai. Dahil nasarapan ako, I asked for her recipe at dinaya lang pala ako dahil instant Phad Thai lang ginamit nya.

Bumili ako ng sangkatutak na Phad Thai kit (Php 87 per pack) para i-try kaya eto ang kinalabasan.


Instant Phad Thai Kit (Noodles and Phad Thai flavoring ang kasama nya). For recipe click here.
Shrimp (Any meat will do, pwede din lagyan ng tofu)
Scrambled Eggs
Spring Onion


1. Cook the phad thai noodles according to package direction and prepare the phad thai sauce.
2. Toast the peanuts tas iluto ang scrambled eggs.
3. Sa wok, maglagay ng konting oil at igisa ang shrimp (30 secs lang).
4. Ilagay ang toge at spring onion and stir for 15 secs.
5. Ilagay ang noodles, egg and the phad thai sauce.
6. Haluin maige para ma-incorporate yung sauce sa noodles.
7. Ilagay ang peanuts at i-serve with lemon. Gumamit ng chopsticks kung marunong.

Few more inches at papasok na ang tubig sa bahay namin. First time bumaha dito sa lugar namin. We're lucky may internet at electricity pa kami.

Dear Bro,
Please help us.

Update – Since we felt that sooner, papasok na yung tubig sa bahay namin (as of 4 PM 09/26 almost hanggang tuhod na ang tubig sa labas ng bahay), dad decided na i-akyat na lahat ng gamit sa 2nd floor ng pa gibang bahay namin. Inuna naming yung mga vulnerable stuffs like the sofa, ref etc.

At 6 pm no more electricity and internet (opera mini, I love you!), but fortunately, may generator kami and all the techie stuffs are fully charged.

Leroy and I volunteered to watch over the flood. At 9 pm, less than 2 inches na lang so we both decided to start moving upstairs the rest of the things. 11 pm, flood reached our house. Ginising ng mommy ko lahat ng tao sa bahay and started to pray.

At 3 am, tumaas lalo ang tubig at fully submerged na ang buong bahay namin. Sa labas above the knee na ang tubig.

At 7 am, holly crap! Knee high na sa loob ng bahay namin at waist deep na sa labas. It’s a good thing we have enough supply of food, good for 3 more days.

Its now 11 am, I don’t feel good. I hope things will get better.

Mixed Nuts 004

Been busy this week, kakauwi ko lang galing Singapore-lah, may jetlag pa ata ako, nahihilo ako. Thank you Bro, nakalusot ulit kami sa project presentation, iba ka talaga! Malapit ko na ma master-lah ang pagsasalita-lah ng mga Singaporeans-lah!

School #1- UP- daming exams and requirements. Wala pa rin kami nabubuo sa project namin, sensya naman groupmates, malas nyo pinili nyo ako, promise babawi ako, ayoko din naman mag ka 4.0. Disapproved ang petition letter ko to credit two Statistics subjects I took for my 1st undergrad para sa Industrial Statistics subject na kailangan ko kunin next sem. Imbes na 6 units lang ako next sem, 9 units tuloy ako.Masama pa nun e math subject cya, crap math.

School #2- MWS - Sabi ni Cairo, tumubo na daw yung tinanim namin last week. Kailangan ko pumasok ng isang buong lingo sa school ni Cairo para makabawi. Di pa rin nag po progress yung ginaganchilyo ko, abstract pa rin hitsura nya.

Nilaglag na ni Lacson si Erap. Evil begets evil. Sit back, relax and watch, crescit eundo...

I was asked for my presidential bet, none so far, closest being Noynoy but he is too hilaw to be president.

Leroy recorded the episodes I missed during my Singapore hiatus. I’ll be watching it later, galing daw ni pande Coco Martin at ni Lola Gets!

Nasa amin ang Our Lady of Manaoag since Saturday night at required kami mag rosary for one week hanggang bukas. Ni request kasi ng mommy ko as thanksgiving for dad’s birthday tomorrow. Kabisado ko pa ang mga dasal sa rosary kahit sobrang tagal ko na hindi nag ro rosary.

Napapadalas ang day-off ni Rosalee, mukhang inlababo. Buti pa cya may lovelife.

I saw “angel” again sa UP last Monday, kaso kamalas malasan, naka talikod cya papasok sa classroom nila pero alam ko cya yun. Di ko cya nakita kanina.

Congrats sa UP kahit di champion ulit sa cheerdance – 3rd placer at may special award pa. Congrats too sa FEU (1st) and ADMU (2nd)! ADMU siguro mag cha champion sa basketball since laglag ang DLSU (sob, sob) sa final 4. Sana bigyan ng FEU or UE ng matinding laban ang ADMU

Lumaki na yung stocks na ininvest ko.Yehey! Konti na lang mapapasama na ko sa Forbes’ Richest.Hehe.

Family Humor 004

Mom: Cairo, bihis ka simba tayo with lolo

Cairo: Bakit tayo mag sisimba? Dahil ba marami tayong kasalanan?

Mom: Oo, kaya magbihis ka na. It’s Mama Mary’s birthday today.

Cairo: Ibig sabihin si daddy walang gaano kasalanan kasi minsan lang cya nag sisimba?

Mom: Hahahaha!

Bring it on mom!

PS: Nag mass ako kasama ng anak ko at ng parents ko. Medyo di ko napigilan manlait kasi andaming bloopers, like, may concert queen sa likod ko na kanta ng kanta e mali mali naman lyrics at tono.

Kapamilya Primetime Bida Reviews

Aliw na aliw ako minsan sa pag sa side comments habang nanonood ng mga prime time bida teleserye. Kasi naman parang minsan OA na pagkakagawa o pag arte ng mga tauhan, minsan dahil manlalait ako since birth, walang nakakalusot sa mga mata ko kahit gaano ka liit na detalye but nonetheless worth watching pa rin sila, yung iba.

- May Bukas Pa

-Yung polo barong ni Mayor Enrique (na milagrong nabuhay ulit at nakipag barilan ulit) ay laging bitin, parang hanging polo barong lang.

-Sumisikat na yung tatlong chismosa (Rosalie, Jennifer at Kimberly) sa tindahan nina Atong (Ogie Diaz). Malapit na nilang maging ka level sila Bea Alonzo, Anne Curtis at Kristine Hermosa.

-Nakaka aliw sila Atong at Baby (Arlene Mulach), kahit laging tragic ang buhay sa Bagong Pagasa. May touch of laughter kahit papano. Maganda ang chemistry nilang dalawa.

-Si Froilan the kindnapper, ewan ko kung ganun talaga cya umarte. Sobrang OA. Parang 1,000 times ang galit sa mundo. Laging nakasigaw, kulang na lang pati ako masindak sa boses nya.

-Si Paco aka young Tiagong Akyat, nagbibinata na. Lumalaki at pumipiyok na boses.

-Si Hepe, ginagawang headquarter ang office ni Mayor Enrique, laging nandun kasama pa lagi yung sidekick nya na dapat mag-diet sa katabaan.

-Nung naligaw sila Santino sa gubat, nag transform ang backpack ni Rico into backpack ni Dora. Ang daming nakuhang laman sa backpack at di basta basta ang mga laman, may flashlight, lighter at kung ano ano pa. Akalain mong boy scout pala si Rico, laging handa.

-Si Boy Abunda ng Going Bulilit, lalaki na sa May Bukas pa at Batang Iwahid pa ang ganap. Di halatang bading badingan cya.

-Sobrang lakas ni Santino kay Bro. Nailigtas na cya sa mga tulisan kaso nabaril si Hepe, buti na lang dun talaga tumama sa anting anting nung sidekick nyang ubod ng taba. Dun talaga pinatama sabi ng direktor.

- Tayong Dalawa

-Kawawa naman si Dave, tulirong tuliro na sa buhay, parang adik na lang minsan ang arte nya. Sakit siguro ng katawan ni Dave kaka bugbog ni JR. Nag evolved silang dalawa sa pag arte, ang galing nilang dalawa.

-Buti naman ginupit na ni Ramon yung bangs nya.

-Nakakatuwa ang tambalang Ingrid - Marlene kapag nag aaway sila. Kahit OA umarte si Agot, nadadala nila.

-Si Audrey, 10 drum ata ng luha kada episode ang tumutulo sa mata nya.

-Si Mr. Cardenas, ayoko sa kanya. Nakaka bwisit ang facial expression nya.

-Mag amo nga si Ingrid at si Ula, mukha silang tanga most of the times.

- Dahil May Isang Ikaw

-Mag GMA 7 na lang sana ulit si Karylle, dun cya bagay.

Yun lang comment ko kasi di gaano pinapanood ito.

- The Wedding

-Fun! Nakakatuwa si Marlon and Candice. Pero mas bagay sina Warren and Candice.

-Panalo din ang lovelife ni yaya Greta at lolo Lawrence. Real love, awww!

-Nakakatuwa yung iba characters like Elvis and Ingrid tandem. Bagay sila at may chemistry din. Patok sakin mga hirit nila.

-Nakakatuwa din ang Manalac family.

- Katorse

Di ako nanonood kasi di naman mukhang katorse si Erich. Flop cya para sa akin
