New Administration

At 12:00 noon, presidency transition happened so smoothly in our country today as well as the oath taking of our dear Vice-President Leni Robredo that happened earlier. Filipinos are in high spirits hoping for the best to have a better Philippines. Moving on to what is right and just for the majority must not be taken for granted. Rich and poor, public or private citizen must be treated fairly at all cost. Well, we will see.

In the Book of Genesis, I read about the righteous, traitors, evildoers and so on. Yes, we are not like God. We are not perfect because we are simply humans. Because of some situations, we are tempted to do wrong just to cover our unjust doings. We have sometimes accomplices even in our younger age. It is innate for us humans and I know God knew it many many years ago. I know what our ancestors did will happen again and again and again. The only thing we are lucky is that God forgive us plus the bonus of reparation in every morning we wake up.

I know that it will totally eliminate the injustices both public and private, but starting in our own way first is the best option to contribute in building a good country. We will pray with each other at all times and use the mercy of God to good use to lessen the problems. It is not too late.  We really have a good future because God's promise is just around the corner.

Congratulations to our new President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and new Vice-President Maria Leonor Gerona Robredo! My prayer for both you is strength in complying your duties and I try to be a good citizen in my own little way.  I hope I will not get tired of reminding hubby not to throw candy wrappers anywhere on the streets and he will not get tired of me reminding about saving energy. hehehehhe  (wink)

Spicy Chicken Curry

Here's another chicken recipe that I would like to share with you today:

All you need are:

4 pcs of chicken breast, sliced according to your preference
3 cups of pure coconut milk
3 tbsp of mc cormick curry powder
4 large potatoes
2 medium carrots
2 thumb-sized ginger
1 medium onion
1 head of garlic cloves, minced
1 large tomato
1 medium bell pepper
2 long chillies
2 tbsp olive oil
1 small-sized cabbage (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

First, we will saut√© the onion and wait when it will become translucent so you can add the garlic and ginger.    Add the sliced tomato and put immediately the chicken breast until the meat will become white.  Add the curry powder with a little salt and mix it well.  Put the potato and carrot and let it simmer for two minutes and add the coconut milk. Simmer it again for another 10-20 minutes or until the carrots and potatoes are cook so we can add the bell pepper and long chillies.  I love greens so I usually put cabbage or pechay in this recipe. Just do not overcook the greens. Add more salt if necessary and pepper to taste.  Happy eating!


Please note that cooking this recipe is good if we are using the medium fire gauge especially when simmering.

Godparents

Are you close with your godparents? Unfortunately, I don't remember I had a chance meeting them during my grown up years. All of them were my parents former fellow workers and live far away from home. I am still lucky that my parents were there to guide us in strengthening our faith aside from school.

When I decided to get married, I make sure that I have a godparent who will help us strengthen our marriage. The one we can talk to our struggles that sometimes confusing especially for new couples like us. We need that person, aside from our parents, who will remind us what is really necessary. We were blessed because when we were starting we had our marriage encounter right away. We were sponsored by one of our godparents and we are so grateful how it helps our journey with flying colors. For that, they did a very good job. I want to be like them and it happened as early in our early 40s.

To be honest, I didn't hesitate when I was asked to be √° wedding godparent. I remember how proud I am when my closest friend told me about the idea. It is actually our privilege that they are making us part of their married life. The bride was my former officemate and even we are living far from each other, we make it a point to see each other as possible. My husband would always describe our team as happy people and I am definitely in a good company. Yes, he loves my friends and he is also willing to be part of the family that is why he agreed.

I hope that God will give us wisdom and be a good example of our godchildren. We will try to help them live a meaningful married life with us through the help of our Lord Jesus Christ.
