Cooking doesn't like me because I am not a good cook, I only new the basic like frying eggs or anything that can be done easily haha. Whenever there a celebration in our house such as birthdays, christmas, fiesta, new year and others, I only helps them with the preparation of ingredients.

This was the Adobo that I burned

Adobo is a Filipino dish wherein the meat will be marinated in vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, bay leaves, black peppercorns and other spices.

Did you know when I was in highschool I cooked adobo and then I burned it haha. But, luckily we are asked to cooked it at home then take a of it and send it to our group chat. I created for my subject which is Technology and Livelihood Education and I was the leader so that's why I did all the job.

Sinampalukang manok is also one of the Filipino's favorites, it is a chicken soup dish with a sour broth.

Anyway, here's what my Sinampalukang Manok that I cooked yesterday haha. I know it wasn't look appetizing but my family loved it and there was no leftover. We don't have young tamarind leaves so I added some string beans instead but is optional though.

I was nervous at first that they might not like it but no, they requested for more rice and they ate a lot. I don't know if they just wanted to makes me feel better and to not hurt my feelings haha. Even though I don't get hurt easily and I am not a cry baby.

If you also want to try it. Here's 5the recipe from Panlasang Pinoy Page;


  • 2 lbs. chicken cut into serving pieces

  • 3/4 cups tamarind flower buds or tamarind leaves

  • 1 large red onion

  • 4 pieces long green pepper siding pansigang

  • 3 thumbs ginger sliced

  • 4 cloves garlic crushed

Joyce ang sarap naman nito. Nakakagutom. Yung Adobo yan ulam ko kanina. Adik din talaga ako sa Adobo. Favorite ko talaga yan. Gusto ko matikman yung Sinampalukang Manok kasi di pa ako nakatikim Joyce.
