Paksiw na Isda sa Suka Recipe

I used to eat paksiw na isda when I was living in the province during high school days because our place is just a kilometer away from the ocean. Most of the local people’s jobs in our town are fishermen so almost every hour there are fresh fish that we can buy. The last time I visited our town, I actually asked my brother (locally living there) to buy me some fish for cooking paksiw and I really enjoyed the dish. Now, enough for the story… let us go to our menu, there are actually plenty of fish selections we can use in this recipe but my suggestion is to use those tiny ones as they are tastier for the recipe. Please find below the ingredients for Paksiw na Isda sa Suka.

Estimated preparation and cooking time: 25 minutes

Paksiw na Isda sa Suka Ingredients:
· 1/2 Kilo Fish (Hasa-hasa) cleaned

· 1/2 bulb of garlic, peeled and minced

· 1 medium size onions, minced

· 1 medium size tomato, sliced in 4 parts

· 3 large chili / siling berde (optional)

· 1 thumb-sized ginger, pounded then sliced

· 2 Tablespoons vinegar (Sukang paumbong or any vinegar you like)

· 3 Tablespoons water

· Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Instructions:
1. In a cooking pot, combine the major ingredients, first the fish, and the rest of the ingredients except the water and the chilis.

2. Keep the pot in a low fire for 10 minutes until the vinegar is soaked by the fish.

3. Add the water and the chili and cook for another 3 minutes in medium heat.

4. Add salt if necessary and serve with steamed rice.

Coconut can be found almost all over the Philippines and most of Pinoys are using coconut in cooking pinoy food recipes. According to studies, Coconut is rich in trace minerals including manganese which is essential in metabolism, healing and collagen formation, copper which plays a role in immunity and bone health as well as selenium, a nutrient which is critical to thyroid function as well as developing healthy skin, nails and hair. 
The coconut milk is used in many different cuisines and delicacies or "kakanin" such as bibingka, Suman, Ube-Halaya and many more. Also, coconut milk is used as an ingredient for veges too such as "Laing, Kinunot, Langka, Kalabasa. To make coconut milk, the coconut must be split into two by smashing it with a hammer or mostly some pinoys in the market are using "bolo" to open the cocount, then it will be grated (there are machines in the market that is used in grating coconuts), and then the grated coconut will be added with preferred amount of warm water. Then Pour coconut mixture through a net or nut milk bag into any jar or pitcher and then squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

Banana Cue

I really loved banana cue, I know most of you liked this too.  Pinoys enjoyed eating banana cue because it is very delicious and this is our all-time favorite snack.  Banana cue is cooked using "Saging na Saba", it is deep fried and coated with caramelized brown sugar. It is usually skewered on a bamboo stick, and is sold on the streets. The perfect match for Banana cue is to have some "samalamig" (a sweet drink made of water, vanilla extract, and cubed gelatin), sarap talaga.

Lupang Hinirang (Philippine National Anthem)

The Philippine National Anthem:

Lupang Hinirang is the national anthem of the Philippines. Its music was composed in 1898 by Julián Felipe, with lyrics in Spanish adapted from the poem Filipinas, written by José Palma in 1899.

Originally written as incidental music, it did not have words when it was adopted as the national anthem of the Philippines and subsequently played during the proclamation of Philippine independence on June 12, 1898. During the American occupation of the Philippines, the colonial government banned the song from being played with the passage of the Flag Law.[1] The law was repealed in 1919 and the song was translated into English and would be legalized as the "Philippine Hymn". The anthem was translated into Tagalog beginning in the 1940s. A 1956 Pilipino version, revised in the 1960s, serves as the present anthem.
Lupang Hinirang in Filipino or Tagalog means "Chosen Land" in English. Some English sources erroneously translate Lupang Hinirang as "Beloved Land" or "Beloved Country";[2][3] the first term is actually a translation of the incipit of the original poem Filipinas (Tiérra adorada), while "Beloved Country" is a translation of Bayang Magiliw, the current version's incipit (and colloquial name). - wikipedia.

Bayang magiliw,
Perlas ng Silanganan
Alab ng puso,
Sa Dibdib mo'y buhay.

Lupang Hinirang,
Duyan ka ng magiting,
Sa manlulupig,
Di ka pasisiil.

Sa dagat at bundok,
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw,
May dilag ang tula,
At awit sa paglayang minamahal.

Ang kislap ng watawat mo'y
Tagumpay na nagniningning,
Ang bituin at araw niya,
Kailan pa ma'y di magdidilim,

Lupa ng araw ng luwalhati't pagsinta,
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo,
Aming ligaya na pag may mang-aapi,
Ang mamatay ng dahil sa iyo.

(Note: We do not own the photo, video, and the music, we just need to post this in our site for our proud kababayans and to other visitors who want to know the history about the Island Philippines)

Pinoy Jeepney

Pinoy Jeepney
I really loved to ride in a jeepney because aside from it's economical it is also a pinoy pride.  While on a jeepney you can hear different horn sounds from traditional pot-pot to a funny ones (laughing man).  Some jeepneys have woofer speakers that will make you feel like you are in a disco house.  Some have ropes on a ceiling connected to the driver's gadget that when it is pulled, it will signal the driver to stop the jeepney. There are lots of patterns of prints and designs that you can see at the side of the jeepney.  Nowadays, some of the jeepneys are equipped with airconditioning unit. Truly Pinoy.
