I am a member of Etihad Guest Miles where you earn points for every mile you traveled. In July 2011, I redeemed some of my points and got these watches for my wife and son. One is Hugo Boss men's watch and the other is DKNY ladies watch.

Filipinos around the world will always like the foods they grew up to. One of these is the food they eat at breakfast. Pinoys are fond of frying left-over rice in hot oil and crushed garlic . This is called sinangag in the native dialect. The sinangag will be nothing without fried fish or tuyo and of course, fried egg. This 3 combination is now called TUSILOG, for tuyo, sinangag at itlog.
The popular refreshment all Filipinos enjoy is called halu-halo. It is composed of sweetened fruits & legumes with crushed ice and evaporated milk. On top of this concoction is either leche flan, halayang ube, ice cream or all. Below is my version of Pinoy halu-halo.

During Christmas, I always make one kind of Christmas lantern or parol. I learned the design from carpenter-relative who made the house of my uncle and aunt in Olongapo City.

It is a challenge to make the frame but more so to wrap it. It is easier to make the frame in the Philippines because bamboo sticks are abundant. But in Australia, I need to tie in two BBQ sticks to get the desired length.
