Rare Pink Atis or Sugar Apples

By on September 28, 2020

Sugar Apple or Annona Squamosa, a tropical fruit in the Philippines with a pink or green heart-shaped fruit with pronounced green scales. Widely considered wild fruits thrive rapidly in any types of soil, grown from seed and can be planted in rough corners of the garden, it also looks attractive outdoors bearing many fruits at the same time and the tree never become tall enough with no disturbance to other plants. It is well adjusted even in a small spaces, the garden doesn’t need to be spacious to plant this kind of fruit.

I was so excited to discover the first fruit of an atis grown in our own backyard, it’s a pink Thailand variety, the fruit tree was abundant. Thailand varieties are much larger and far more luscious than the native ones.

My First harvest, pink in color with no bruises and black spots at all. The sweet taste is refreshing especially when it is cold but the most intriguing is to see the scaly- rough skin and the fruit itself contain numerous seeds. I’ve collected more than 15 seeds from one medium Atis alone.

Freshy-picked, you can see the internal parts, the creamy white in color of the flesh and the big stalk inside. From the picture itself, you can now imagine how many seeds inside it. To eat this kind of fruit, you need to be patient to remove the seeds however, it’s worth to taste the sweetness.

One thing good about picking fruits in your own backyard, well assured to be guaranteed fresh, clean and first hand to touch it. I’ve reduced and produced my expenses for fruits growing in our own backyard, it’s a big help and the excitement to get up early to pick the fruits is a blessing!

Atis tree continuously bearing fruits all year round, indeed, it is designed for our weekly consumption throughout the year, I just hope the tree will live longer.

When Picking Atis

Fruits can be left on trees until fully ripe or you can pick it after maturity, that is, if you know the indicator of maturity, you wait 2 days after picked up. If you have this kind, the only problem after maturity, birds and bats present a big problem in growing sugar apples and maybe necessary to cover the fruit before ripening time.

When buying Atis

Having bruises and black spots is not good, just represents how many people have touched it. Blackening of scales makes the fruit dirty and annoying to see, much as safer to buy a fresh one and the first hand.

Take care everyone, see you next posts

For Snails, Fork or Toothpick? Helpful Tips

By on September 24, 2020

In the restaurant, they serve some of my seafood favorites like; Black tiger prawns, crabs, lobsters, oysters, octopus. Beside the seafood platters, there’s a separate saucer for toothpicks to extract flesh of snails. If you noticed, toothpicks are often provided when snails are served especially in buffet restaurants. Informal way, they provide toothpick for snails and for formal is always with tongs accompanied by steel snail fork.

Now, in Buffet restaurants, what are those toothpicks for? If you hear the word toothpick, would immediately come to mind the definite purpose is normally used for picking the dirt of teeth and now we are using for food, that’s two different thing which is not good for two different purpose of one kind. Is it a yucky thing? It is already a common practice around. Oftentimes, following a good dinner when guests are dressed up and toothpicks are served first when snails are present for appetizers. However, after eating, usually you ask for the same kind.

It is already a common practice that you can see around. It’s probably the easiest way to keep table setting simple because of the number of guests involved that they can’t provide the proper fork intended for the purpose. Normally, in rural areas, they don’t use toothpick for snails either, they use their mouth to suck up pieces inside.

Ginataang Kuhol

I will now share with you my unforgettable but funny experience. I never forget the first time I tried snail in the province. At first serious sampling,I threw up! I’ve tried it again the 2nd time, this time is a more serious tasting. The good recipe was Ginataang Kuhol, the aroma you can smell inside the house and thought it was delicious. I carefully imitate what the olds are doing. Following it, I carefully picked one and goes directly to my mouth and sucked it. Glorious! I’m a damn sucker! I sucked everything including the flesh, watery part and sandy portion. The bad thing? I almost sucked the whole piece of shell. LOL! It was here that I learned to love the taste minus the shell.

My helpful tips calling for a change

For more successful and safe results, I suggest to use and select the best fork suited for seafood. It is improper and unpleasant to see toothpicks beside the food itself. Simple rules are easy to learn following basic rules in using appropriate fork. We have different kinds of fork for seafoods like; lobster fork, prawns fork, fish fork and cocktail fork for squid and octopus too.

Which fork works best for snails? Seafood is considered safe and special using appropriate fork which is easier intended for this purpose. If you don’t have the steel snail fork or silver one, there’s a decorative fork which is plastic but firm and disposable like toothpicks too, the price is just right especially the small ones just like the price of toothpicks in a box. Check photos above of Ginataang Kuhol with decorative snail fork that has a firm pointed tines.

Other flowers with lovely blossoms turning to wonder shades of blue, purple and deep red in the afternoon, it added interesting textures to the garden.

 I never miss to visit this place when in the ‘’City of the Cool Sun’’ I’m putting more time to enjoy strolling around the stunning hidden paths of the outstandingly handsome foliage and perennials grown directly in the ground.

The buzzing of bees and the presence of other pollinators like honeybees and butterflies caught my attention, couldn’t help but snap few photos, taking snapshots is fun and rewarding undertaking while enjoying the cool weather. Let me show you some of the photos taken there but I tell you one thing, flowers be the most frequently photographed subject of nature but to include the honeybees pollinating the flowers makes it more interesting, that should be kept in mind too. Hope you’ll agree after viewing, Let’s get started!

Photos of Beautiful Flowers and the Honeybees

Baguio Botanical Garden is really a pollinator- friendly garden, you’ll see here the process of pollination, on how honeybees pollinate the flowers. Stunning Dahlias produced the larger flowers of all varieties.

Me with the honeybees working together they will pollinate the flowers, I do the shots. This is ‘lil fun Jo!

Focusing very close to the subject to get this result, macro shots!

I’m very careful in doing this, timing must be precise enough not to disturb bees.

Dahlia flowers- the best flowers for the honeybees, it provides pollen and sweet nectar which is the favorite of the honeybees however, you’ll see the Inula and everlasting flowers which are also a honeybee favorite as well.

While facing the global crisis, you’ll come to realize that sunset can do wonders, viewing can be quiet soothing and it will remind you how beautiful life is! Now, Let’s get started!

The Beautiful Manila Bay Sunset

I regularly checked all photos from file folders of my desktop, I had a magnificent array to choose from among most compelling images from different travels in and out of the country, my local road trips, beautiful landmarks, beach photos, food, people and other lovely landscapes. I feel like a time traveler, I just want to put my heart into my stories. I’m using 22 sunset photos all in all, it was photographed before the pandemic. Ok fellas! Happy viewing!

Photography Location: Manila Bay (Port of Manila) Roxas Boulevard, Manila Phils.

 The beauty of nature that passes so quickly, when the sun touches the horizon in a matter of minutes, when the light reflected off the water, it adds a strong romantic mood of the image.

Me with the sunset, I’m doing a good habit to find something new to feature here, it represents a great turning point to cheer you up while facing coronavirus pandemic season. There are more surprises waiting for you here, you may also love the beauty of nature from the rocky coastline to reflective sea. I’m here to capture great moments at my favorite photography spot, Manila Bay Roxas Blvd.

The sunset over Manila bay, a very dramatic setting in the evening, the glowing radiance of red, yellow, orange, purple and blue reflections of the sun below the horizon.

The fishermen’s bestfriend, an extremely reliable dog with the background of the dramatic sunset.

Handsome dog with the sunset background is a beautiful piece to add here. It’s rare find to see them here.

The sad cat is another rare animal never before seen here. I’m lucky to have 3 species around while capturing the sunset.

The horse makes a lovely setting, horse-drawn carriage tour is common here, we call it,”Kalesa”

This guy made a living by selling balloons here, he had all the youthful colors that brings beauty to the background.

Around here, you’ll see the ship, yacht and Fishermen’s boat, it adds interesting element to the background.

Outrageously, a stunning view of the bayside sunset. The sun sets just beside the Hotel H2O, a fine dining is good while watching the sunset, it is really a spectacular spot for sunset dining.

Light from the water brings interesting foreground and background details.

Quarantine Photography/Carpenter Bees

By on September 16, 2020

What a little progress moving through difficult times, we don’t have the normal movement during this pandemic. Most of our movement are restricted and limited, I’m not at my normal activity anymore. All my everyday activities have changed throughout tough times, I can’t go out to shoot interesting subjects, I’m scared, I need to take necessary measures to protect my health, I just have to stay home until coronavirus pandemic is over but when? Life seems uncertain for now. I’m terribly missing my normal routine of pre-pandemic life.

Going through while staying hopeful to cheer me up, I’m doing a good habit to photograph what our garden offers, I think this would be an endless garden photography, it gave me the opportunity to feel the cool breeze, the morning dew and blooming flowers with insects encircling around. These photos of carpenter bees are entertainment to view and will surely cheer you up during coronavirus pandemic season. Carpenter bees are not social insects like the honeybees and bumble bees but they do not bite, they are not aggressive, the female does have but will only sting if handled directly. Go for it! I hope you’ll enjoy viewing my morning visitors.

Note: Macro Photography of Honeybees next post, don’t miss it! More selection of items from butterflies to bees, dragonflies and the blooming flowers.

25 Photos of Beautiful Carpenter Bees

From a different perspective during isolation, the garden would be my favorite photography spot for now, I need to grow and challenge my photography skills. For a blogger like me, this is one effective measure to kill boredom.

These photos serves as my quarantine collection of carpenter bees, it’s a reminder of my long quarantine activities. It’s not easy to snap these flying insects under extreme location exposing my skin under the bright sun in mid-afternoon shooting however, I’m lucky to have them in our own front and backyard garden.

I hope you’ll like it, these carpenter bees photos will surely provides smiles and happiness during difficult times.

Ok Fellas!

Hoping for a COVID-Free Christmas

By on September 2, 2020

It’s now the 2nd day of ‘’Ber Months’’ it is running from September-December, it reminds us of the coming of holiday season and countdown to Christmas. What to expect? Is it a spirit to get us even more? We’ll come to that later. At least we now experience a bit cooler weather, we hear Christmas songs on the radio, we usually see Christmas trees and delightful decorations in shopping malls and the fun preparation and excitement to decorate starts but what is Christmas in the year of COVID-19? It is hard to imagine that we will celebrate Christmas differently this year 2020.

Given the concern and restrictions about the Coronavirus pandemic, the reduction of air travelers, it is impossible to think restrictions would be lifted by Christmas. What Christmas Year 2020 would look like? I think, there’s no more holiday shopping, no lucky find in the department store, no more New Year Countdown. At the present time, people are scared to go out into crowds and closed spaces. It is also weird to think that Santa will also wear mask and face shield (personal protective equipment) Can you guess what’s inside Santa’s bag? Is it hand sanitizers, alcohol, liquid gel to destroy the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19? Will Santa have to social distance too? it might be a COVID Christmas and I’m super worried Santa’s ‘’Ho Ho Ho’’ would be Hu Hu Hu…

Expectations from people like me, as an optimist, I’m naturally delighted to what people believe in, it’s a COVID-free Christmas but when you look at your life, something different we look through, the greatest happiness this holiday season is for Santa to deliver vaccine in advance. I think that’s pretty special! Things might not be completely good until there is vaccine.

I’m reviewing my memory list, I’m a memory keeper, I have had a list of old notes from past years, the names of my close friends, colleagues and cousins to share simple pleasures with. I never forget wonderful friends no matter if its COVID or not…

It’s too early to think about Christmas, forget first the frosty decors and the festive tree trimmings, no more planning ahead, no more advance booking to travel, no more Christmas holidays abroad for the family. Other friends, they have to spend Christmas apart because of the coronavirus. Anyway, planning is underway to ensure a safe yuletide season to all. Our presidential spokesperson, Harry Roque said’’ it is still possible to enjoy holiday season in the Philippines. We’ll see, lets pray and hope for the best to come.

Goodnight everyone. Take care. Stay safe and healthy.

Home Cooking During the Coronavirus Pandemic

By on July 31, 2020

The pandemic season has given us more opportunity we never thought we would experience but up to now we are still facing similar crisis following the given protocols and restrictions under each level of quarantine from ECQ—MECQ—GCQ and of all measures, ECQ is the strictest. The COVID 19 stay home orders to keep us safe and minimize the risk of spreading, the great concern to wear mask and comply with social distancing measures to stay homebound but our country cautiously to loosen slowly back to the new normal life adopting to new rules to follow. No one knows when the pandemic will end and we don’t even now how long will it take to recover, we can’t expect people to stay home for forever.

Multitude of questions in mind when uncertainty rules, we have a grim economy, the lack of income because of stay-home orders indeed, this is hard to those struggling to survive from day to day basis, the closures of other restaurants , bars and tourism suffered greatly during this pandemic season but my big thanks to gov’t support programs given unemployed citizens cash handouts and food packages, it’s a must need.

After the lockdown, I’ve almost done everything. I spent most of my time attending to my family needs since everyone works from home and till this time, I want to make sure everyone is safe because I’m scared, worst is yet to come. Recently, I ‘ve deactivated my Facebook for 5 months so I can firmly focus on family needs, I buy things online and be more specific to essential needs, the basic only.

One thing to withstand the strain and pressure during this pandemic, no matter how hard the situation, I was enjoying discovering new cooking trends and special recipes be the kitchen and food is the perfect bonding. Summer months (March-May) was a productive one, good supply of fruits in season with special prices, almost the best fruits and some of my favorites at their peak, I enjoy buying necessities online good for one week. When refrigerator is full, it gives me lots of option on what to cook. For me, quarantine time is really a meaningful journey of cooking, this is the only way I know to maintain love and happiness amidst pandemic isolation. Do you think the long months lockdown is a well-deserved break?

Here are my home-cooked foods prepared for my family, I have photographed every dish made before serving, you’ll see here other menus done in the course of pandemic.

Our simple breakfast in the garden (with the generous presence of our family pet, Frosty)

Quick and easy seafood recipes, it’s Cooking from the garden

My Chicken Congee with Century egg

It’s our favorite breakfast every Sunday. With family members around, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Bulalo is a beef dish, you can clearly see the bone marrow present in all bones. It’s all time family favorite.

Steamed Crabs with Black Bean Sauce

Sizzling Sisig With additional effort, they can be transformed into just like this.I grew up familiar with this kind of recipe and I feel confident making it.

Sizzling Spicy Squid with Vegetables is another sizzling recipe of the day.

Beef Burger with Mushroom Gravy, additional side dishes arranged on a base are steamed broccoli and French fries.

My Japanese Gyoza

My Special Cheezy Morcon is delicious and addictive.

Steamed Shrimps with Fried Slices of Eggplant. Beautifully arranged on a plate, the circular order or rounded form presentation, my family will be able to enjoy the rest of the meal.

Snacks and Desserts

Cooking, cooking and more eating, I consumed high calories, thus I gained bit weight, my failure to count and cut high calorie foods but I’m not expert when it comes to calorie counting unlike my sister Anne who is a registered nutritionist-dietitian, She’s expert to that field.

Every meal became an adventure seems to be created just for my family to enjoy during the pandemic season. The variety of simple courses has the advantage of extremely adaptable and irresistible that you can try, it’s easy and simple anyway. How to prepare? well, see you next post, it’s impossible to upload multiple pictures in one single post.

 Late afternoon, I’m fortunate to view the sunset from our own garden.

It’s a pride of owning our own pomelo tree, pomelos in our own backyard brings excitement.

I used to cut sleeping hours shorter every Friday night so I can blog but to catch up on Saturdays and Sundays, I made sure to turn off electronics, laptop, cellphone, TV to avoid distractions when off to dreamland and it’s about time to go there now, Goodnight everyone and Thanks for reading my blog.

Stay Home and Keep Safe Always

My Quarantine Activities

By on July 3, 2020

Its been more than 3 months since ECQ but still infection rate is high, to the rest of the world we see similar numbers raging. Coronavirus pandemic, dangerous as it sounds, more and more people being infected, it’s effecting the entire country and the world.

From my previous blog last month, I have mentioned (with back-up photos) on how pandemic has quitted Pasig city and my hometown Piat Cagayan. Before I forget, today is the feast day (July 2) of ”Our Lady of Piat” the patroness of Cagayan Valley, the Sambali celebration deferred this year but devotees will gather for a special mass at Santo Domingo Church on Quezon Avenue, Quezon City. You can just imagine how coronavirus disrupted our lives, no more public events, no gatherings, the need of wearing mask and social distancing, it seems to be a normal part of life already. This year 2020 is a big blow following 2 patterns of events, after the major eruption of Taal volcano in Batangas last January and now faces COVID 19 pandemic, this is a big blow to our economy and its relatively hard to face the crisis.

The government COVID 19 Task Force extended quarantine measures with new rules to adopt, we are still undergoing new restrictions except for essential purposes following appropriate measures. During challenging times, we are experiencing concerns, many have been working from home for almost 11 weeks now, we don’t know how long coronavirus last with another new rules to adopt upon reopening this coming July and still raising hopes there is vaccine. Other countries cautiously reopening from months long shutdown and Phils slowly reopening.

Oftentimes, my sisters would talk about fiestas, missing social events like birthday celebrations, fancy night out parties, graduations, buffet gatherings, get- together with friends and traveling. Mindful of social distancing blues, no more face to face bonding, other people are very eager to go out as I’m also missing social gatherings with my buffet friends too. Months of March-April-May and July, it was a summer homebound for the family and now, rainy season coming up next, we are really facing a new phenomenon, summer 2020 is not like no other this year. Coronavirus has disrupted everything and I’m trying to live by it.

What’s the impact might be? Would be sharing some of my quarantine activities here, got 5 family members here, a sort of, like prisoners staying inside the room for long hours working that I have to feed them, preparing home cooked food and of course clean water for them, not to mention all the alcohol, hand sanitizers all around ready to use.

Mobile Palengke in Pasig to lessen public trips around, it is ”Presyong Palengke” and it’s very convenient.

My daily life is no boredom, being flexible coming up with a schedule that keeps me busy all day long, the entire day devoted to my family, it’s a home to share bringing family closeness together, the good bonding and dedication will hold us firmly.

While at home, it’s really a homey feeling of togetherness, my family is complete and I’m keeping a master list on hand, there are a hundred things to do and this is also the best time to appreciate the beauty in our own backyard, we are the Backyardigans experiencing beautiful adventures in our own backyard. Moving productively, more and more things done in one day and in the coming days and months. The things I’ve missed before, those things I’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done yet, this is the perfect time to get things done, it’s a big opportunity to finish and not to rush. Cheers!

Here’s sharing with you my stay home ECQ activities that keeps me going from day to day, just a few list of stuffs:

Enjoying my daily cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

My Mango Float is an easy recipe and it’s everybody’s favorite.

Everyday Photography

I have captured few morning visitors in the garden, this kind of pleasurable activity keeps me going from day to day.

Gardening/Landscaping

Gardening includes planting, morning visit in the garden and harvesting fruits. Photo above, just one of few snapshots taken around, a lovely butterfly pollinating a wide variety of flowers.

Morning walk with my favorite pets

Excellent date to take out our dogs and cats for a morning sunshine.

Among others, of course I need to update my blog, daily exercise, cleaning, afternoon nap, playing piano and electric guitar, listening to my favorite songs, reading my latest books and watching TV for the latest coronavirus pandemic updates. All these activities saved me from boredom blues during this pandemic season and dreaming we would be back to normal life soon, to welcome friends without any mask and social distancing.

Take time to take to check my daily photography snapshots going on for the best subject in our own backyard. I’m really hopeful we will overcome this crisis soon and hoping our economy will bounce back before the end of this year. I wish you all well and keep updated.

To all those who are in the frontline,”our COVID Warriors” I’m inspired by your courage, Thank you very very much and May God bless us all. Keep safe and Take Care!

By on March 18, 2020

Coronavirus cases continue to rise globally, Municipal mayor of Piat, Atty. Carmelo Villacete made similar announcement asking all people of Piat to stay indoors( home quarantine) to minimize transmission of coronavirus. Within responsibility, this is an emergency power to protect health and safety of the people. Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 disease and the best way to avoid being exposed to the virus is to avoid people, most often, virus spreads mainly from person to person and do transmit even in the absence of symptoms.

Causing fear and panic in Piat, in its response to the coronavirus outbreak leaving empty spaces and businesses as our town responds to concerns of the spread of COVID-19.

Scenes Revealing the impact of Coronavirus Outbreak

Info-sharing and this is how our beloved town, Piat Cagayan looks like now. All photos taken from inside the car no longer than 5 minutes.

Normally, devotees line-up to offer prayers, the Basilica Minore of Our Lady of Piat is temporarily closed till April 13, 2020.

Where have all the people gone?

Piat Central Elementary school, my alma mater is temporary closed.
This scene looks like a ghost town.

More pictures coming up very soon…

Thank you fellow Piatenos. Stay safe ! ‘’Apo Baket’’ will bring an end to disease and sufferings. May God bless us all!
