Foods at the beach and everywhere!


Wow! It feels like weekend. I have free from work now because it is Holy week. Have more time to blog ( wink) and to do somethings that I love doing. 
Anyways, I am still blogging from my vacation in the Philippines. This time, I am going to show the foods that I have eaten when I was there at the beach with my family.
Hope you  get hungry! Just joking:)

I think this  consists of liver, potatoes, carrots and paprika with spices.

Grilled chicken and pork


fried squids
s

Pinakbet ( vegetables with shrimp paste)

the famous " pancit"

pancit canton

soup

Paksiw na pata

They have entertainment at night too at the beach. Wonderful! First time for me to experience such event.


Of course we have to eat again too:)


After some days, we celebrated my older sister's birthday

We had eaten " Palabok"


I bought her cakes

Sapin sapin is made of rice, sugar and coconut milk, I believe

Grilled pork, hotdogs and cooked rice


We celebrated her birthday at the swimming pool near the place where my son lives.

Some of my grandchildren and a niece enjoying the pool


My sisters, me, our mother and brother- in-laws


My sons family with two of his three children, my oldest daughter with her two children and the birthday celebrant. 

Leaving you this prayer posted on my other blog: willyouhearfromme.blogspot.com

Live today...our decisions today affects our tomorrows..

Father, make our heart soft and sensitive for you TODAY.
Be obedient when we walk in the wilderness or in the flowering fields.
Let our hearts be always tunes in to you,
so that we will follow your ways.
Do not let us turn away from your words.
I pray that we encourage each other daily.
 As you inspired us with your goodness
and marvelous deeds, let us also inspires others ,
with your goodness through us.
Help us to be bold and hold on until the end.

In Jesus name I pray.
Amen
JOY

At the beach!

This morning, when I woke up, the snow came for a short visit again. Fortunately, it melted during the day. Made my body to long for a day in a beach with the heat of the sun that  makes my body tan.  
Speaking of a beach, here are the wonderful pictures I had with my family at the Calamayan Beach Resort.


They have boat for rent if someone wish to padle on the sea 


The view from our rented rooms



Lots of monkeys around. I managed to took a picture of one:) 

The kids couldn't wait anymore. They changed at once to swim suits so that they could play in the water.


Of course, grandmother wanted to join the fun

Want to join us?

My youngest grandchild though was afraid of the water. Well, it didn't  matter.  She was so  happy just  playing in the sand.


The kids really enjoyed the beach time


The day after, we took with us bread pieces  to be given to the fishes. Lots of them came along and swam around us, as you can see in the water.

But, of course, when one is on the beach, there must be food too. I will share food  pictures in my next post:)

Thoughts for the day

If you need guidance

But my Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in my name,
He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

John 14:26

Blogger of the week!

Wow!  I was so suprise to be chosen to be the blogger of the week in a Norwegian blogsite. I am so thankful because they had given my humble blogsite in Norwegian a chance to be known in the public.    Here is the link:


Actually, I share the same post in my English blog, only those posts were written in Norwegian. Helps me to be better in Norwegian language.

But now it is Monday again. Weekend just flew away like the passing storm. But, I do managed to be creative once again this weekend.

I found this cute teddy bear

in this book


When I want to do something, I do it at once like you see in the picture


Voila! He is finished. Now, can you give me a name for him? He is now on sale in the activity center where I work.


Or else I have to eat in between every chores I have.
So these are some of what I made for dinner this week.

Chicken with coconut milk 


My version of biff kaldereta

squids cooked in coconut milk

Easter decoration on my kitchen table

Ending this post with these words:

If you want to be beautiful

A happy heart makes the face :13

Camayan Beach Resort

Yes, here it is raining again. Well, I should be thankful for the rain. I need water to drink and the plants need rainwater to grow too. 
Anyway, time to reminisce again the finest moments I had with my family in the Philippines last February this year.

After our tour to Zoobic Zoo ( I still have many things to share from there) we went to Camayan Beach Resort to check in. I believe it was only 15 minutes drive from the Zoo.
This is the entrance.


Inside the hotel facility

clean and beautiful

I loved the palm trees.

no water in here

in front of the reception area

souvenirs for sale 

this is also the path on the way to the beach

This is the place where we the rented the rooms

very nice sorroundings

Reception

Inside the room. One of them. They all look alike

As I said, we rented three rooms because I have a big family as you can see

me and my oldest son
Well,wherever I am, if there are flowers around, I couldn't help it. I just have to take some pictures.
 


Well, let us just take a break. Next post, we are going to explore the beach!

Leaving you this worsds:
A cheerful look brings joy to the heart;
good news makes for good health.
Proverbs 15:30
