Pigging Out

We always pig eat but we seldom pig out because pigging out cost us a thousand or more and we can’t afford to spend that much often. That is equivalent to our 4 to 5 days meal (snacks included). The last time we pig out was December last year. We had our Christmas shopping and dropped by Pizza Hut for supposedly afternoon snack but it turned out into dinner. Hubby ordered a whole thick crust family pizza. RJ just ate half of a pizza slice so it was me and hubby who devoured the whole big pizza, plus  big serving of lasagna and bottomless iced tea. We’re both bloated when we went home.
lasagna
The best lasagna I’ve ever tasted. (forgot to take picture of the pizza)
The next day, we watched Disney on Ice and had dinner at Super Bowl after. We ordered dimsum platter, chopseuy, large Chinese fried rice and bottomless iced tea. As usual RJ ate a little so hubby and I were obliged to eat all what is left because it cost us another 4 to 5 days meal. Waaah!
food
I love to cook and we all love to eat. So in our house, no doubt we pig eat most of the time especially on special occasions. I can cook whatever we want to eat and we can eat as much as we want.
 Our meal last valentine’s day. We didn’t go out.
How about you? When was the last time you pig out? Share us your stories at…

Kung Fu Panda

 My Rating: 8/10
Summary:
Po, (voiced perfectly by Jack Black), an overweight, enthusiastic and a little clumsy panda, who is the son of a noodle maker, is the biggest fan of Kung Fu around. He was unexpectedly chosen to fulfill an ancient prophecy. Po follows to be the legendary Dragon warrior and trained by the Kung-Fu grand Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), along with the Furious Five: Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Viper (Lucy Liu), Mantis (Seth Rogen), Crane (David Cross) and Monkey (Jackie Chan). Their job is to protect the village from the wrath of the evil Tai Lung (Ian McShane).
Kung Fu Panda was released in summer 2008 in United States. It was released here on June 6, 2008, not summer but still part of RJ’s summer vacation so we watched it before RJ went back to school. We were laughing to the max. It was the perfect blend of comedy, heart, and action. The voices of Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman and Ian McShane are excellent as the main characters. It was one of the best animated movies we have seen.
My mag-ama. All smiles while watching Kung Fu Panda. Yes, with matching picture because its RJ’s first time to watch on big screen.

Consumers Choice

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

Though there are news releases that the world economy is getting better, deflation is still present in the large part of the world. Many countries are facing financial crisis with rampant unemployment and poorer nations have to survive trying to meet their basic needs. Oil prices have gone up and the prices of basic commodities have also gone up. In fact, 8 of 10 supermarket shoppers see no improvement in the economy, and 40% says things have actually gotten worse in recent months. This is based on the research conducted by GfK Custom Research North America about the Recession, Recovery & Store Brands. That is why many consumers are tightening their budgets and 62% of the consumers are now patronizing Store-Brand products.

With the crisis we are facing right now, buying Store Brand products is a wise move. These products are definitely much less expensive but perform as well or better than their expensive brand counterparts. 49% of consumers say their new Store Brand selections compare constructively. Consumers who switched to Store Brand items are now happy with their new choice most especially with the Parent’s Choice milk formula. With the milk formula alone, each family can save $600 a year. Plus the savings on other Store Brand products, that is big savings!

The status of the economy may vary from country to country, but still, consumers need to be wise in buying their basic needs.  Why pay more for those big names if you can get the same or better quality at a cheaper price? No wonder Store Brand products are now the choice of most consumers.
