Cooking Asian Dishes

 

The month of January was supposed to be a wonderful month (before I got ill). Earlier in the month, I had challenged myself to try to cook and prepare Asian dishes Filipino-Style for every meal, or at least for dinner. What does Filipino-style mean you might ask? If you ever have the opportunity with Filipinos, you will quickly notice that a Filipino meal consists of not 1 but 2 (and even 3 or more) different dishes! The challenge is to mix and match the flavors. I know what you will say next – isn’t 3 dishes a bit too much? Yes, of course! The idea is not to force yourself and finish everything. Whatever is left will be eaten the next meal, which means that if there’s a lot of leftovers, you will only need to cook 1 dish. One important thing to remember about Filipinos is to never throw away food. In a country with a high poverty rate, every single piece of meat or fish is important! Even leftover rice will be turned to garlic fried rice or Cantonese fried rice.

Beautiful Box au Feminin – Janvier 2019

 

Another month, another beauty box. I’m still as happy as ever to receive beauty boxes. However, I do have to find a way to filter, segregate, and give away the products I don’t use. There’s no point to accumulate so much if I’m not going to use them.

Surprisingly, at first glance one would think that the January box was the February one. It’s so pink! Hihihi 😸 😸

Que 2019 pétille de bonheur – Janvier 2019 – Beautiful Box by Au Feminin

  • Contour Yeux Eclat Lissant « Musalight » by Kadalys
  • Fard à Paupières Liquide « Scandalous Glitter Eyeshadow » by AWA Make Up
  • Poudre Visage Perlée « Bubble Pearls » by Tabatha
  • Soin Capillaire Hydratant « Tea Time » by Bubble Therapy
  • Crayon Jumbo à Lèvres by ModelCo
  • Pink plastic pouch

Personally, I thought it was a very good product selection. I use the eye contour in my daily morning routine for my sensitive eye area. The Bubble Therapy hair care leaves my hair smooth. I use it right after I towel-dry my hair and before blow-drying. It doesn’t leave my hair greasy at all. I am also very satisfied with the lipstick. I love its color and its creamy texture.

If you’re interested in subscribing to this box, send me your first name, last name, and email address.

Prescription Lab Janvier 2019

 

Ughh! I’m afraid I might be coming down with something. Baby Girl was a bit ill these past few days and I’ve been taking care of her. Every time she’s ill, I silently pray that she gets better quickly and let me get ill instead. An exchange of hostage / prisoner of some sort. Problem is, it works each and every single time. So today, she’s running around and feeling fine and I’m starting to feel like crap.

Thankfully, one good thing did happen today. My Prescription Lab package arrived!
