Tiger Fireworks

New Year is Thursday next week, barely 8 days to go. I am sure most of us are done buying gifts for Christmas already. How about the colorful and sky-flying fireworks for your New Year’s Eve? It is one of the things you need to buy early too to avoid traffic and increase in prices.

Yesterday (Tuesday), I was able to drop by at Divisoria Mall to buy some stuff and decided to buy also some fireworks for New Year’s Eve. My brother-in-law knows somebody selling these stuff so I was able to get it at purchase cost (@ minimal mark up, if any). For example, I bought a big square box of Tiger for only P400.00 but outside it can cost you P800.00 bucks so learn to ask for a lower price at least 30%-40% of the price.

On New Year’s Eve, it’s a practice for us to buy cook food to avail of some rest before midnight. Aside of course from having the 12 rounded fruits we also have Conti’s Mango Bravo Cake, pasta, BBQ, and some others.

Plan and buy early to save time and avoid any hassle. Happy Holidays!!!

Conti's Mango Bravo Cake

Hubby and I are contemplating if we will prepare something for our Noche Buena. We’re just four in the family, us and the 2 kids, and most of the time kids are already asleep by midnight of 24. We just decided to cook spaghetti and chicken sandwich for the 2 of us. For our Media Noche on the 31st I am planning to buy the famous Conti’s Mango Bravo. I got my first taste of it during my Tita’s 70th birthday and I must admit I really love it and my daughter as well.

There are only 4 branches of Conti’s and the one we’re familiar with is the one located in Greenhills. I bought this cake once in an occasion and this is probably the second time. It is definite that will gonna have it on the table on New Year’s Eve but when to buy it is still on hold.

If you are cake lovers and want to try something new aside from Goldilocks and Red Ribbon specials then this cake is highly recommended. A slice of this Conti’s Mango Cake gives you pieces of ripe mango with layers of nuts, chocolate mousse and sans rival pudding. The icing taste just perfect and the mixture of the ingredients really blend on every bite. It costs P850.00 but the size is twice of a regular cake so not that really expensive.

Happy Holidays!!!

How Wheat Works program

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Wheat Food Council. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’m glad my kids love eating cereals in the morning as breakfast before going to school. I buy them different variants of it because I know it is best for them with its nutritional content. Grain foods play an important role in forming a balance diet. The breakfast cereals my kids are taking every morning give carbohydrates, iron and some vitamins to keep them well the whole day especially while at school.

If you love playing different games at Facebook, maybe you can try to play “How Wheat Works.” It is an interactive, online multimedia program that gives a farm-to-fork educational and informative play on wheat. Every participant of all ages can virtually grow, harvest and mill their own kernels to create their desired wheat food. The program has four phases: growth, harvest, milling/baking and the grocer’s aisle. It also involves selection of type of wheat to be grown, wheat flour to be milled and even allow participants to learn more concerning preparing wheat-based recipes.

Wheat Foods Council is an institution that teaches the nutrition in every whole or grain food and its importance to balance diet. For every participant in the program, the Council will donate two pounds of flour, up to 90,000 pounds, to Operation Homefront. The later is a non-profit that provides assistance to needy U.S. troops and their families. Said donation will be made possible by two of the world’s largest millers, ADM and ConAgra. They are extending this program at www.wheatfoods.org so don’t forget to check it out.

Petitioners urged SC to stop RFID project

Various petitioners like Bayan Muna, Anakpawis, etc. urged the Supreme Court (SC) to stop RFID project and declare it unconstitutional which is set to be implemented on January 2010. Also, the groups are asking from SC to issue a TRO to the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) and Land Transportation Office (LTO) to hinder the implementation of the said project.

Stradcom Corporation will supply the RFID tag which is intended to last for 10 years and cost a one-time fee of P350. There are various violations being pointed by the petitioners aside from the fact that there is no previous approval from NEDA for the said project. Some critics are claiming that this could be a source of corruption and that the objective of the project is unrealistic.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Jones Soda. All opinions are 100% mine.

Holidays are just around the corner and party is everywhere. Aside from the cool breeze of the wind, the flickering lights on the street and houses, kids’ school Christmas party, invitations for family and school reunions reached my email. It’s been so many years when I had the last glimpse of some of my high school classmates and friends. Thanks to Facebook for the chance of getting in touch with them again.

Speaking of my high school ’90 batch mates (stop calculating my age happy), I received a message from them for a reunion this month and I am super excited with it. In just less than two weeks from now I can get to see them again after several years. But wait!!! What will I bring with me on that day?

Will martial law weakens murder case against Ampatuan?

Politicians whether opposition or allies of PGMA contradicted the declaration of martial law. For them, there is no need for such declaration and it will also weaken the murder case versus the Ampatuans. During the different searches made by law enforcers on the different properties of the Ampatuans, they found a big vault similar in a bank but already empty, election materials believed to form part of the 2004 Election fraud and different ammunitions.

The government said that the murder case and the case for rebellion will be trialed separately but others are in doubt of it and find it suspicious. Now that PGMA retracted the declaration what will happen now with the case and the rebellion they are claiming for? The victims of this gruesome massacre are shouting for justice and hopefully nothing will hinder for serving it to them.

PGMA Martial Law: Revoke or not

Congress commenced its joint session (Senate and House of Representatives) last Wednesday to deliberate on President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s declaration of martial law in Maguindanao province. Said session was continued today (Thursday) and probably till next week until law makers have said their piece. The proclamation of martial law in effect suspended the privilege of writ of habeas corpus in most parts of Maguindanao.

I have heard several speeches and commentaries on radio and personally I am enlightened with the logical reasoning of some. The said “Maguindanao (Ampatuan’s) Massacre was indeed gruesome, brutal and other words that can describe evilness to the highest level. Everyone is claiming that they are seeking justice for the victims and I hardly pray that they could give it to them.
The declaration of martial law gives the law enforcers free hand to do what they believed to be done with no difficulty to gather evidences and catch the perpetrators the soonest possible time. In doing so justice will be serve at once. On the other hand, I understood the points of those who comprehend the law and the possible loopholes for opposing or favoring the revocation of such declaration. They fear beforehand that during the trial it will not be 57 (or more depending on the outcome) counts of murder that these suspects will be trialed for but a case of rebellion. The sentence for rebellion would only mean a life sentence but for 57 counts of murder the sentence would have been 57 lifetimes.

The members of the Senate and House of Representatives must really scrutinize the prons and cons of this declaration before they handed down the verdict (revoke or not) so that justice will be served to the victims.

Diamond ring from Manny to Jinkee

Everything seems to look at peace now between Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao. During the opening of the couple’s novelty shop in Manila yesterday, December 8, Jinkee is wearing the said piece of “peace offering” from Manny which is a wide diamond-encrusted ring. Jinkee is happy having a Christmas gift from Manny and told press that the issue about Krista Ranillo is over and pointed. They are moving on and keeping the family intact and happy.

Being there for Manny through thick and thin, Jinkee made the right decision of standing by with Manny for the sake of their family. Nobody can tell the real score of the story except them and if we are seeing them now happy let us just wish them continuous happiness.
