Philippine Goods

Last Saturday Todd took me to Yuan Ming Supermarket in Missaguaga about an hour drive from home. I heard it from my friend that the Asian store is huge and their prices are cheap. It was my first time to be there and oh boy I was really surprise and happy to be there. I shopped alot of goods from back home. I had fresh fish, shrimps w/ head, fresh squid and a milkfish. I also bought some squid rings for calamare. There were lots of goodies from home from chippy, cheese curls, oishi, nagaraya, boy bowang, mix nuts and so much more. I bought a lot of junk foods. I had some frozen "bulinao" small fish. I had ampalaya which I cook it last Sunday with bag-ong (sauted shrimp) and fried fish. It was a very yummy dinner.

Todd likes siopao so we bought some too. They have a restaurant also with Chinese and Filipino cuisine. You can also buy lechon by pounds. They have a bakery section also I just love their raisin and coconut bread taste like the bread at home.

It will still be awhile before we can go back there. Todd told me to buy a lot like a month supply. I told my friend that I went there and told her that I did enjoy my shopping wish I could buy them all, lol.

A Trip To South Carolina

Every year Todd and I goes for a vacation. It is our way of treating ourselves for working hard through the year. We take our dogs with us so it is always a land trip for they can't be on the plane. Last year we went to Tennessee to spend Christmas with my sister’s family. We were just using the map we got from travel insurance company.

This coming April 9-15 we are going to South Carolina to visit my other sister and spend Easter with them. It would be very nice to have a Garmin NUVI 260 Portable GPS that will make our travel hassle free. I am glad I found cheap deals at for the GPS we have been eyeing to buy for future trips. This is a perfect gift for Todd on his birthday before we go away.

Since it will be a very long trip I need to entertain myself while traveling. I need a Portable DVD Player so that I can watch movies on the road. I would also need a new Luggage Set that is light weight and spacious for our clothes and other travel needs.

Hope we will enjoy our coming trip to South Carolina where the weather is warm.
