All I’m hearing this week in the news is traffic. Heavy Traffic. Monster Traffic. Traffic Armageddon.
Is it the end of the world? Well, not yet but maybe for some it is. They’re expecting this monster traffic to last for two years because of the major road construction/repair in Metro Manila. Now, I’m thinking that I made the right decision 3 years ago to work from home. I’m just thankful that I’m not going through the stress of commuting to work specially with this news.
For other people this is good news, this might be a great opportunity to invest.
Tender Pork Chunks With Tomato and Shrimp Paste Sauce (commonly know in the Philippines as Pork Binagoongan) is a common dish in the Philippines. The reason why I like cooking this dish is it’s super easy to make. You don’t need to be an experienced cook to make this.
Two of its basic ingredients are sauteed shrimp paste and tomato sauce. Originally, tomato sauce is not part of this dish. The redness of the sauce will come from the sauteed shrimp paste. I added tomato sauce to add an extra flavor to this dish.
There are 3 varieties of sauteed shrimp paste that I know:
I prefer the spicy one.
This Saturday I am going to share my Homemade Hot Chocolate Milk with you guys. Stay tuned!
