Early bird catches the crab

We had walked to Munoz Market, Quezon City starting around 4 am from our home yesterday. As we were looking at the market for our dinner, a large crab is showcased on the piled crab and gaining the interest of many customers.

charybdis feriata
Charybdis Feriata

We had immediately bought the crab for P300.00 and I almost slipped when we went back at home to get more money to buy other dishes compliments. 

We got too excited to think of the type of cooking delicacy we're going to do.

charybdis feriata
It turns out upon my researches, this is a rare crab named Charybdis Feriata, most often seen in Cebu or Japan. 

The seller said it could have cost more if it was alive.

Surprisingly, the whole family is excited about the crab. 
We ended up with a decision to use butter, onion, garlic, salt, ginger and add sprite.

We first boiled it with Sprite soft drinks then added the butter, onions, and garlic. 

We also bought other seafood like shrimps for P100 half kilo and Tahong P100 half Kilo.

A grinder was used to open the claws but the claws were thick, it took us 4 minutes to open them in half. 

Here would be a short video of cutting the crab with the mini grinder.

We had crab and corn soup too and fried rice

Somehow, I'm incredibly thankful, it felt so much like a fun family Sunday. Everyone was so happy and excited. We all love seafood and shared moments of how memories of our favorite seafood moments when we were young. Mom said she had seafood given one of Grandmother's side of the family which is the same size.

I, on the other hand, reminisced my moments with her when I come to her island conventions.
While meaw and handmaiden talked of how it was in their hometown seaside life. I would be wishing that Sundays are spent family time like this but after that reality check, I still got deadlines.

Till next time again. Hope you subscribe if you like reading my blog.

It’s all about loving yourself through proper health care

We are all big on self-love and self-care. To some, prowling over fitness gyms in the neighborhood, raiding vegetarian restaurants at the corner of the street, and looting for the most effective herbal supplement over the counter is loving and caring for oneself. For others, self-care and self-love comes through indulgent skincare. Yes, you read it right. Skincare.

Though beauty is only skin deep, how your skin looks can affect your self-esteem. Having that glowing, healthy-looking, supple skin gives you the confidence boost to put out your best foot forward. But, implementing the right skin care regimen can be quite a challenge for some who are clueless as to what will work for them or will not.

“Skincare addresses two concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and not take it for granted,” says Dr.Lalaine Salazar, medical director of the Svelt’i Health and Beauty Center. For the past two years, SvelT’i has become a pillar of promoting health and beauty inside out while preserving a healthy skin and body. And in those two successful years, Svelt’i has helped many individuals turn their simple skincare into a ritual of self-love and self-care.

 The doctor shared she would get similar messages, either in Viber or Instagram, from patients sending their before and after photos, telling how happy they are with the huge difference and beautiful improvement on their skin. One satisfied client shared, “I remember how I was so ashamed of my face full of acne but now I gained the confidence to face every day without hiding anything and with a positive attitude.” 
Aside from promoting proper skin care regimen, Svelt’i is also committed to aiding people achieve a physically fit body with the help of technology. The centre offers a variety of non-invasive treatments that promote healthy weight loss. “After 10 sessions of I-curve and several of thermogenic, I lost more than 12 lbs and 7cm off my waist line. This enables me to use the clothes that I want and have regained confidence. I now take time ensuring what I wear is nice compared to before where I have no choice but wear bulky clothes” shares one fulfilled client. Since the centre’s launch two years ago, Svelt’i has been taking care of its clients’ needs for body slimming. What’s more fulfilling for the people behind Svelt’i is that each client comes out of the centre feeling better and fresher.

“These are the words that inspire us to give the best services.  We are not just promoting beauty and health, we are building the self-confidence of our patients,” shares Dr.Lalaine.

Biting into the “health” and “wellness” craze makes one true to the epigram that says, “love yourself enough, to live a healthy lifestyle.” Taking good care of our body through proper skin care, eating a balanced diet, and sufficient exercise is the key to self-love and self-care we all deserve. And in our never ending journey to finding self-love and self-care, we can count on Svelt’i in achieving overall beauty, inside and out.

How to Avoid Car Lockout Situation

It’s fairly common to be in a car lockout situation. Studies show that a large percentage of motorists experience getting locked out of their car and it’s really not surprising to know that these situations happen mostly at night.

How do you avoid a car lockout situation? Other people carry a spare key in their wallet or purse while others find it more convenient to have the contact details of their automotive locksmith provider saved in their mobile phones.

What if you don’t have a spare key or you don’t know an automotive locksmith provider in the area where you got locked out?

Try searching for a car locksmith thru Once you’ve contacted a provider, here are other things you need to remember:

1      1.   If you cannot get into your car, do not let someone drill into the lock prior to trying any other tactics. In addition, someone that wants to immediately replace the lock is probably not legitimate. A good locksmith can get into just about any door. Therefore, the two steps mentioned above should not be necessary.

         2.    When a locksmith arrives to help you, ask them if you can see a photo ID. You want to make sure that this person is who they say they are. Some states require locksmiths to have a license. If you are in one of those states, you should ask to see that as well.

      3.    Ask for a receipt from your locksmith. Most locksmiths are trustable, but some are scammers. That is why it is important to get a receipt. Keep the receipt somewhere you can find it, in case there are any questions about payment later on.

      4.    When you initially call a locksmith, make sure you question them about the type of services they perform. You do not want to have them come out to your location, only to find out that they do not service cars or they do not have what they need to take care of your situation. Chances are, you are going to be in a hurry to get the situation resolved, and you do not want to waste time.

      5.     If you get locked out of your vehicle, make sure that the locksmith doesn't block your car in when he gets there. Unscrupulous people will do this in order to get more money from you. Never pay them anything. The best thing to do would be to take note of their license plate and call the police.

       6.    Get an estimate in writing before allowing the locksmith to begin working. This estimate should include the cost of unlocking the lock along with the cost of replacing the lock. You can agree to certain parts estimate. For example, you can agree to pay the service fee with the stipulation that if the lock needs replaced you will want to get several quotes.

Just as you look for an electrician for wiring help, a locksmith can help with security and lock issues. What does it to take to find a person who is trustworthy. You just need to use the guidelines you went over above. They will put you on the right path.

Surprising Birthday

I was surprised. Really, I am. I never really expected anything for my birthday. The truth is, I never even planned anything, to begin with, but to my shock, I did not expect this to happen.

It has been a week after my birthday and as usual, I got very busy with not planning, but I was focused on cosplay and business vice versa. I was so busy that I could not even upload my after videos and pictures on the day of the event, but would never miss the chance to at least document it before my birth month ends.

I wrote a blog of the things that I wanted for my birthday. Although the list is not fulfilled, my surprise to what I received that day. I was able to celebrate my birthday at night because I was asleep during the day, yes, I sleep at different time zone.

I was awakened of a special delivery and found out some neighbors are curious why I received it and who sent it.

I received a bouquet of red roses and Ferrero Rocher chocolates are included. It was so heavy I could not carry it, I thought it was from my boyfriend, unfortunately, he said it did not come from him.

So who sent it?

When I checked the card, it indicated from #airbnblove Lori and friends.

I was left speechless. I never would have thought Airbnb would do this. I was stunned and could my excitement could not be held, I immediately had to document this special day.

Some people who saw me commented that I get younger despite my age. It's like I have some kind of youthful serum which makes me younger every year. I'm chuckled and thankful for the compliments I received.

Mom came in later on and she gave me a set of gifts coming from relatives.


As I mentioned, I have not planned even the meals that I will serve for my birthday, but I'm grateful to my bf, he had cooked for me different flavors of chicken and had bought cake and barbeque, which made me extremely happy.

The messages of greetings on my birthday were overflowing with love, i got teary eyed.


It took a while before I was able to get asleep because I am too delighted to receive bountiful blessings.


Thank you, God, mom, meaw, mama and family, #airbnblove and especially those who had greeted on my facebook, friends who remembered. Thank you!

My treat for my little buddy - Rufus and Coco 2 in 1 Squeaky clean

I have decided to share my blessings, with my birthday coming up so soon, I decided to treat my little buddy a spa-like experience in his bath. 

My hedgehog named Ero meaning love is not quite a fan of baths, he is the great descendant of Sonico's great grandchildren, my first hedgehog. He would try to escape even with the slightest water touching him. He knows it's bath time and it's a big no-no for him, but in order to keep him clean and healthy, I need to assist to give him the best for his needs. 

 On my journey to H&R, I found a great bargain sale of P99.00 instead of P199.00, a bunch of 4 little pet-friendly shampoos. It's a great deal, although I haven't checked the product review on the net when I bought it since the store is already on closing hours and everyone is in the rush to go home, I have researched it at home.

I called them up internationally and they said that it can be used for hedgehogs.
Yey! By the way, if you want to know incredibly cheap calls for international I use a specific app, TalkU on google play. 

I am not affiliated and collaborating with any sponsors etc. This is my own review of this product I discovered.

2 in 1 Squeaky Clean Shampoo

is made by Rufus & Coco for animal use, it is a mild shampoo and conditioner all in one, it indicates that it has the fresh scent, which seems to be undetected on my part. 

It says it's suitable for rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, mice & rats. 

I had to ask an expert before buying and gladly they were able to confirm this is good for my hedgehog too, the category would fall in the ferrets part. 

It's only 4 pieces and each is only 125 ml.
It indicates that is made from Australia. 

According to their product info on the website, the product is ph balanced, designed for small pets, free of sulfates and parabens, a component sometimes seen in a typical shampoo and are considered harmful to them. 

It also indicates that it hydrates and cleans hair adding shine and reduce static. 

The usual price is $10. 35 on the online market so I definitely have scored a budget on this one.  

The directions are well indicated in each packaging, I'll write them down for easier reading:

Directions for use:

How to care for your little friend: 

Guinea Pigs: Wash 1-2 times a month
Ferrets: Wash once a month
Rabbits: Wash only when necessary
Rats: Wash only when necessary

First, place a rubber mat or towel in the bottom with 2-4 cm of warm water. Your pet should not be completely under water!

Apply some Rufus & Coco 2in1 Squeaky Clean to the coat and massage it in, taking care to avoid the face. Towel, chamois or blow dry on a low setting and keep your little mate warm until completely dry.

Finish up with a brush with the Rufus & Coco Self- Cleaning Sticker Brush

 Active ingredients: 

Cocamidopropyl betaine
Sodium lauroamphoacetate
Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate
Cocoamide DEA
Hydrolyzed wheat protein & starch complex
hydroxypropyl hydrolyzed wheat protein

Manufactured by

Rufus & Coco Pty Ltd
Suite 17, Level 1
1-3 Brady Street 
Mosman NSW 2088, Aust

Tel (+61) 1300 851 422

Here is my "Ero", he just had bath and yeah he does not like bath so much unlike other hedgehogs in the internet, although I tried everything to make him comfortable, he's not quite a fan of being drenched with water, but I need to make sure he is well taken care of.

The picture is blurry because he moves a lot like crazy every bath. He seemed to like the Rufus and Coco Squeaky clean shampoo and conditioner as he looked calmer this time compared to other shampoos that I have tried for him. 

I noticed that he doesn't seem to irritatingly sneeze with this shampoo, other brands i have tried seemed to have either too much fragrance or is not pet friendly at all, as i have observed from his behavior.

Plus, it seemed that his coats shinier. Its not too shiny but there is a certain difference in the glow seen on his coat.

It only has a faint fragrance but its not strong. 

This brand has been on sale for quite sometime now, soon this might not be available on the shelves anymore but I hope I get to see this brand again on their stores. I would definitely buy it.

So as a big help for all of you, I know you might be looking for the ultimate deal around P100 range to P2,000 for the most expensive ones, so on this post, I have already searched and jot them down.

Free Simple Birthday event planner

Birthday months are in! I know it must be nerve-wracking to prepare for one special day on your own, I have been feeling the same way each year.

My lack of planning gives me regret to do the things that I wish I could have done in that fateful year.
If only I have planned them ahead of time. So, I’m making my own birthday resolution for this month and I’m definitely going to prepare for my birthday right and this time, nothing’s going to stop me.
