I’m cooking a sotanghon with sardines as the main ingredients. If you don’t have a meat or a fish you can use a sardines as an alternative. The name of our main dish is Sotanghon with Sardines.

  • sardines (you may use meat or round scad)
  • red bell pepper
  • cayenne pepper
  • carrots
  • onions
  • garlic
  • soy sauce
  • vetsin or magic sarap
  • salt
  • oil
  • and boiling water

I'm really not a book reader so I must say I'm not good in expresing something in a poetic way. I graduated as an Engineering basically in Computer field, but I'm not working instead helping our small family business. I love to sing but the songs don't like my voice "baka umulan lang". I like to dance but my body is in bulgy (mataba eh) so small indak2 lang. There's many things about me, i'll tell it all here. Hopefully!
