made in China

With all the hoopla going on about China-made goods everyone is scared of buying any edible China-made products. And the Chinese has gotten wiser. They do not mark their products made in China now. So how will you know if you the products are made in China? Check the barcode. China goods have barcode starting with 690, 691, and 692. Before you put anything in your grocery basket please read its label. It pays to be careful.

the word is fresh

Wondering how to tell if a fish is fresh? Well, then you first have to define what fresh is, right?
For a professional chef, fresh fish is a fish that will be served within 3 days of its being caught.
The Japanese meaning of fresh fish is it is served within 24 hours after it was caught.
While to others, a fish is fresh if it has not been frozen.
Now here are some guidelines on determining a fish' freshness:
1. The fish should smell fresh and mild and not fishy.
2. The flesh should be resilient. It should bounce back when pressed.
3. The eyes should be clear and a little bulgy.
4. The scales should not be dried up.
5. The gills should be bright.
Now you know how to tell if a fish is fresh. But no matter how fresh the fish is if it's not stored properly it will spoil easily.

baby boom

It seems that everywhere I turn someone's getting pregnant. Well, that is except for me... First a co-worker who got married after we did, next another co-worker, then my bestfriend, followed by a girl who's trying so hard to be a part of our family, and now another a colleague. I am getting frustrated but I know that I can't do anything about it since hubs and I aren't together. He is in Europe while I'm here in 'Pinas. I really hope we can be together soon so we can try getting preggers too!
