String Beans in Soy Sauce – Adobong Sitaw

Jul 20

This is one of the easiest dish to cook here. Here’s a very simple recipe of this Filipino dish.

One of my favorite vegetable dish that is so easy to cook!

1 cup sitaw (stringbeans) cut into 1 inch size
3 cloves of garlic minced and chopped
1 medium onion sliced
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
3 tablespoons of vinegar
half a glass of water
200 g chicken fillet sliced or ground pork (meat is optional)
oil for frying
salt, pepper to taste
2 pcs dried bay leaf (laurel)

Add oil in a pan, and fry garlic, then onion till soft. Add in the meat (here i used chicken fillet) stir fry, then add the string beans, stir fry a little. Add the liquid ingredients and simmer. Add salt and pepper, depending on your taste. Cook until the vegetables are tender, add in the bay leaf and peppercorns a minute or two before turning off the fire.

Serve with rice.


Qabana Resort – Dasmarinas Cavite

Qabana Resort – Dasmarinas Cavite

Jul 15

One of my child celebrated his 10th birthday and we had a swimming birthday party.  Location – Qabana Resort and Hotel in Dasmarinas Cavite. Very near from Robinsons Pala Pala Dasmarinas.

A few minutes away from Pala-Pala intersection. The place is easy to find because its just beside the high-way.  You can reach here by commute and you will not get lost lol…  Transportation for commuting is by jeep or bus.

Php 130.00 adult
Php 90.00 – kids below 4 feet
Tables w/o umbrella – Php 100.00; w/ umbrella – Php 150.00
Cottages – Php 500.00
Parking – Free

What I like here is that it is very accessible. We went there commuting only by jeep. I also like the fact that I don’t need to bring any food, just buy foods there, save me the hassle of cooking and carrying a lot of stuff. Plus the entrance fee is affordable :) .  There is a restaurant just beside it, you know those that serve sizzling types.  Magdaragat is also beside the place, pick your own meats/seafood and have it cook in any restaurant there.

The tables, cottages and stage

I also like the kiddie pool with the mushroom umbrella painted with Disney characters. My little boy who is 5 years old really loves it , he’s not even afraid to be by himself (of course he is being watched all the time), he sits, walks and swims by himself without being scared, unlike in other resort that we’ve visited where he always wants to be carried or someone holding him.

They have QTV’s, rooms to stay, a hall, 2 pools, for kids and an adult pool (4 ft) with a slide. They also have a small stage.  Blaring music as you go swimming is available lol.  Function halls are also available.

They also have a mini bar / resto.  If you bring your own alcoholic drinks you will need to pay corkage fee of P300.00 at the entrance.

The minibar and food counter

The pools are not that big, only 2, 1 for adult and 1 for kids, but we liked the place anyway.  When we visited there it wasn’t crowded. Open any day of the year.  We would definitely go back here again, since my kids love swimming, we can just go here anytime we like. No worries on food preparation. We’ll just buy food there, there’s a sari-sari store also beside the place. Can go there by jeep or by bus if commuting.

You can have night swimming  and I forgot to mention above, the place has a WI-FI.

Qabana Rating – 4 stars.

Apr 18

 Do you like to shop online? like from ebay, amazon, etc. but don’t know how to make payment? No more worries coz you can do it, even without a credit card, just by registering a free paypal account. Shop using PayPal on eBay and with thousands of merchants worldwide

“PayPal is an e-commerce business allowing payments and money transfers to be made through the Internet. PayPal serves as an electronic alternative to traditional paper methods such as checks and money orders.”


Here are the steps to open a PayPal account.

How to open a PayPal account

1. Sign up for an account by visiting the PayPal website and clicking the “Sign Up” link located at the top-right portion of the page.

2. Choose the PayPal Account Type applicable to you. First, select the Country or Region where you live.
Choosing your country from the drop-down menu opens a page that shows three PayPal account types.
Personal Account is obviously for personal purposes while Premier Account and Business Account are merchant accounts used for online businesses.
Unless you are sure you want and need a Premier or Business Account, I suggest you choose Personal Account first. You can upgrade to Premier or Business Account anytime, but cannot revert to Personal Account once upgraded.
Confirm your “Language Preference” then click the “Continue” button.

3. Fill up the Account Sign Up Form. Completely and correctly fill in the sections “PayPal Account Owner Contact Information,” “PayPal Account Login,” “Password Recovery,” and “Security Measures” then click the “Sign Up” button at the bottom.

4. You’re almost there! You are now asked to verify your account by adding a credit or debit card. You may choose to add one at this stage or skip this step and move on to the next by clicking the “Cancel” button. Remember, though, that adding a card and enrolling in the Verification Program are necessary to be eligible to withdraw PayPal funds.

5. Almost done! In order to complete the registration, confirm your email address. Do this by checking your inbox for a PayPal email then click the confirmation link there. You may also choose to confirm your email address later by clicking “Continue” in this page.

6. Hurray! You now have your own PayPal account. The Personal Account Overview page will contain your name, email address, and account status.

Congratulations! You now are a certified PayPal account holder!
Do note that unverified accounts have a sending limit of $100. To be able to send without limit, the account must be verified and enrolled in the Expanded Use Program.

How to verify my PayPal account?

Verified PayPal members living outside of the U.S. complete the Expanded Use process by:

Confirming their email address
Adding a credit card
Entering the Expanded Use Number

How to add a credit card to my PayPal account?
Click the My Account tab.
Click the Profile subtab.
Click the Credit Cards link in the Financial Information column.
Click Add.
Fill out the Add Credit Card form.
Click Add Credit Card.
You have successfully added your credit card to your PayPal account.

How to enroll in the Expanded Use Program?
Upon adding your credit or debit card, complete the Expanded Use enrollment wherein PayPal charges your card a small fee ($1.95).

The fee appears on your bank account statement accompanied by a unique, randomly generated four-digit Expanded Use (EXPUSE) number.

Locate your four-digit Expanded Use number, either on your next paper or online credit card statement. The Expanded Use number is located right before the word PayPal in the description of the Expanded Use fee charged to that credit card.
Log in to your PayPal account and click the Complete Expanded Use Enrollment link on the Account Overview page to complete your enrollment.

It usually takes 2-3 business days for the PayPal Expanded Use Number to appear, depending on the issuing bank. If you do not have online access to your statement, wait until you receive your physical statement to check your four-digit PayPal Expanded Use Number.

Spread the word and invite others to open a PayPal account now!
