Happy Fiesta To Us : San Isidro Labrador Feast Day

Today is May 15, the feast day of San Isidro Labrador for many places. Nangka, Marikina included. We don't really celebrate fiesta like others do, with lots of guests and food. We did eat something special earlier. Excellente Scrap Chinese Ham, yummy Kikiam and steamed veggies. Scrap Chinese Ham is actually meat scraped off the sides of the chinese ham to form its shape. It looks like shredded meat but it tastes really good! 1 kilo costs P840, we bought 1/2 kilo of yummy goodness!

A big roll of chinese-style kikiam is sold for P90. It doesn't taste like the usual kikiam we can buy from the street vendors. This one is more tasty.

Berto and I have been trying to cut back on our carbohydrates consumption. We try to stay away from rice and we munch on steamed veggies instead. We've gotten used to the taste, they are now staples on our table.

Hello! Back Again... With Exciting News!


Hello again! It has been tooo long since we last updated our blog. We've had so many things going on in our lives that we just didn't have the time and energy to write about our lives. Ok, so I just got lazy... hehe.

The photo above was taken last May 6, when we availed of our free birthday pizza from the Shakey's card. In addition, we ordered chicken, mojos and carbonara. After this, we went to SM Marikina to have some pants and a  skirt altered.

Ok, so let me share with you why we've been busy these past few months... last March, a wonderful surprise arrived. We literally jumped up and down when we got it, Here's a photo of Berto and Bea with wide, excited smiles on their faces:

After waiting for almost 5 years... our visas arrived!!!

So now our days are filled with a whirlwind of activities: planning and packing and selling stuff. We've already sold our van last month. It was a bit early but the price was ok, so we decided to just sell it. Now we have no choice but to take public transportation. Usually we have no qualms at riding the FX or the jeep, the only problem we have is the HEAT!!! Thankfully, my sister lets us borrow her car sometimes. =)

We're leaving next month, we're both excited and scared. It will be a new adventure for Berto, Kwala and Bea! A whole new life awaits!
