Not-So-Updated Food Blog

It’s been a while, I guess, that I haven’t updated my food blog’s posts. I was just so busy with a lot of things. One of those things were the revamping some techie stuff — plug ins and other tools of this blog which made me forgot to post veggie and other food updates.Honestly, I have had hard time sparing a backup data of my blogs because I have no enough knowledge in doing so and reading alone online posts and articles gave me more headaches.

Much of my eagerness to learn and for the benefits of my blogs, I stumbled upon top windows backup online. The site actually provides details and information about windows backup services. It explains how useful to do backups of data especially, in my part, for my blogs that is very prone to online hazards. At least, if a backup data has been stored offline, whatever happens to my blogs online, I could easily revamp and make my blogs  alive again because I have already kept a file and copy of the contents of my blogs.

Up until this moment, though I have read a number of articles about doing backup files of online stuff, I am still learning more and more to do those. But at least, I have learned something and I am comfortable enough to work with my blogs online because of my spared offline data.

Nonetheless, I am still trying to update this food blog and share more about healthy veggie foods.

Sinulog 2012 Effects

The recent Sinulog festival brought life to the Queen City of the South, that is Cebu. Restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, inns, pension houses and others were all filled up with tourists and visitors all wanting to witness the grand mardi gras. My mother and I were among the thousands of visitors and spectators of the colorful parade in honor of Sto. Niño. At the malls, even the food courts were jampacked with revelers and people from all walks of life. Even the socialites who wore Grey and Osbourn’s van Dal shoes took part of the annual festivity, not minding the throng of people and crowd who filled up the chairs and tables of food houses.

It was somehow difficult to find seats for us to dine especially when the parade ended and when champions were declared. But thankfully, we, ladies still managed to dine at one of our favorite restaurants. Even though the place was full, we were still able to fill our hungry stomachs with sumptuous food.

Though I love fishes, Emoticon only domesticated fishes, I really do not know what’s the name of the fish that my mom used and prepared — Paksiw na Isda (Fish in Vinegar) shown in the above image.

Let me share to you the ingredients in making Paksiw na Isda. Smiley

Of course one needs the fish — any kinds of fish will do. Vinegar, this is the most important ingredient aside from the fish itself. One should also prepare garlic. Onions, for me, is not necessary but many prefers Paksiw na Isda to have garlic.

These are just the things to prepare. See? It’s really easy and very affordable. So now, let’s start cooking. Haha!

Cooking Paksiw na Isda (Fish in Vinegar) ain’t really that hard. If preparing its ingredients is very simple, how much more cooking it? LOL! As far as I experience, I just arrange all the above mentioned ingredients in a cooking pan. And set the stove in a low continuous heating. This is to allow the vinegar to be slowly absorbed by the fish meat.

Are you ready now in preparing your own Paksiw na Isda (Fish in Vinegar)? Smiley
