Dampa Seaside Macapagal

November  1999 nong napapad ako ng Paranaque para mag trabaho, newly grad ako non, every lunch meeting sa office walang bukam bibig kung hindi ang mga paluto sa Dampa. kahit sa mga birthday, bigyagan o kahit reception sa kasalan ng mga officemates ko dampa pa din, kahit ako mismo nakapag handa na din ng birthday sa Origanal  Dampa sa Paranaque. the reason why ? fresh kasi ikaw mismo ang bibili sa palengke doon na din mismo sa tabi ng mga resto na pagpalutuan. mura compare to other restaurants kasi malapit sa bulungan and Original Dampa , Ideal for large groups and anyone with large appetite! at higit sa lahat malapit lang sa office namin. 

sa ngayon  madami ng mga nagbukasan na branches ng dampa, pero ang pinaka sikat ay Dampa sa Seaside sa Macapagal sa Pasay. maka ilang beses na din ako kumain dito kasama ng pamilya at mga kaibigan.  short drive lang  pag nasa Mall of Asia. may mga dumaan din multi cab.

Dampa in Filipino means "kubo" tradisyonal na gawa sa nipa kung saan pwedeng mag salo salo sa pagkain. pero sa palipas ng taon nagbago na din ang konsepto, kasabay na din ng modernong panahon. nagmahal na din.

bago kami pumunta sa  Hotel for Staycation nagyaya ang sisters ko na sa Seaside na kami mag lunch since 2pm pa naman ang check-in time it is part of her birthday celebration.
here we go  palengke time muna, lahat ng klase ng seafoods para ipaluto ay mayroon sa Seaside. 
Pakatapos naming umikot we ended up buying some lapu lapu, clams, lobster, shrimp crab, squid and seaweed.

2,500 per kilo ang liit

pagkabayad pwede ka nang mamili ng restaurant kung saan mo gustong ipaluto ang mga binili mo. 
Lots of restaurants to choose .They can cook your meal any style you want. pero kami  pinaluto namin sa Seazars. 

madami din stalls ng fruits sa Seaside pero yung iba mataas pa  ang presyo kesa sa supermarket same with Seafoods medyo pricey. 

The Lunch is ready !!! forget the diet , gosshh!!! di na pansin ng sister ko halos mag kakamag anak ang sauce ng pinaluto nya haha


crab in chilli sauce

small lobster in chilli

sweet and sour lapu lapu

prawn in garlic butter sauce. 

di ako mahilig sa lato at mga bata kasama namin di ito gaano mabenta sa panlasa amin kaya asawa ko lang ang umubos.

dahil sa may allergy ako sa seafood pero favorite ko kailangan may dala lagi pang laban iba na ang laging handa.

We are seafoods lover so even the  price is a little bit costly go lang since it my sister birthday and would surely satisfy our cravings as well as your stomach then may take out pa.

til next another chibugan

Andok’s champions lasting memories this Mother’s Day

When was the last time we took some time off to create a lasting memory with our mother?

This question and our tendency to be overly connected to technology led to popular Litson Manok chain Andok’s to take a back-to-basics observance of Mother’s Day. This year, Andok’s seeks to inspire families to disconnect from their mobile devices and create lasting memories with their mothers on their special day.

Dubbed as #HourMama, Andok’s campaign seeks to encourage people to dedicate at least an hour for some uninterrupted bonding time with their mother.

“Over the years, we have seen technology successfully bridge various gaps in human experience. However, we tend to be so excited with the advancements and the connections we can make from afar that we forget to give the gift of being present to our loved ones who are right beside us,” shared Maverick Javier, Executive Vice President of Andok’s Litson Corporation.

“This inspired us to encourage everyone to take an hour of their time to take a step back, look around, and create new core memories with the people around them. And we thought it is best to kick-off this campaign by sharing new memories with our mothers on their special day.

#HourMaMa with family 

The campaign kicks off at Andok’s branch in Makati Avenue where customers and guests go offline from 12 noon to an hour and connect with the mothers in the restaurant. The branch’s WiFi will go WaFi (walang WiFi) as the restaurant’s wireless Internet connection shuts down during this hour. Fueling these personal and live interactions among families is the signature taste of Andok’s offerings, allowing the families to punctuate their connections with Andok’s iconic dishes.

“Andok’s has always been about doing things with heart and appreciation. With #HourMama, we aim to not just have a heart-to-heart connection with our valued customers, but to build meaningful relationships and memories within families. We are hoping this activity will pave the way to more observances of #HourMama as our fellow Filipinos spend more quality and uninterrupted time with their moms – even beyond Mother’s Day. Of course, this is best done with the offerings of Andok’s that we’ve all come to know and love,” adds Javier.

Everyone is also encouraged to join the campaign on Mother’s Day by taking a photo with their mothers after a dedicated offline hour and posting it using in social media using the hashtag #HourMama.

Ang Nagbabalik John Lloyd ang Bagong Endorser ng Turks

Photos and videos of matinee idol John Lloyd Cruz have been surfacing after being on hiatus from the showbusiness since 2017.


Cruz, one of the most bankable actors of the Philippine cinema and very effective endorser once again proved that his fans are still waiting for his return. In a teaser video, which lasted only for a few seconds and only shows the back shot of Cruz’s, and posted in the Facebook page of the number one selling shawarma Turks a few weeks ago had been viewed 3.2M times, shared almost 800 times and gained a huge number of comments.
Without any clue in that teaser video, his fans already assumed that it was him in the video. Actress Bea Alonzo on her Instagram also posted a screenshot of that teaser video, which garnered almost a million likes.
This Monday morning Turks finally revealed in the 1-minute and 17 seconds video of Cruz showing the actor walking through different destinations, which somehow depicts Cruz’s sojourn. The video is very simple, yet there’s drama the way it was created, and in a very subtle shot, he stopped and took a bite of a Turks pita donner.
The rugged look of Cruz in the Turks video titled Ang Pagbabalik is way too far from his guy-next-door image and a lot of people in the industry are asking if this signals his return to the limelight. His fans are still wondering about the life he’s been living since his hiatus.

According to Turks president Gem L. Zenarosa that during the course of his talks with Cruz, they never talked anything about his showbiz career or plans. He added that he got Mr. Cruz as the latest ambassador of Turks because of his great confidence working with Cruz.
In time for the release of Cruz's endorsement video, Turks also released to the market its newest offering --- Turks Rice Bowl, which is a complete meal. You can choose beef or chicken for your rice topping, and it is priced at P50. The Small Pita Donner on the other hand, is priced at P35.

“I am really grateful that John Lloyd trusts our company, he is a brilliant and very creative young man. Aside from acting we have discovered some of his remarkable talents,” Zenarosa stressed.

The Ang Pagbabalik according to Zenarosa is actually about Turks Small Pita Doner, which will be available again in all its branches.
“John Lloyd is the best endorser for this because like him, despite his absence in the showbusiness for a couple of years, the warmth and love of his fans for him never dwindles. With our Small Pita Doner we believe that our customers will be happy to know that it is back in our menu,” Zenarosa explained.
Just like Cruz who is seen to have a different image since he last appeared in the big screen, a clear indication that the actor is recreating himslef and exploring different grounds, Turks is also doing the same thing to keep its customers excited whenever they visit a branch.
"To keep up with the demands of our customers, Turks continues to improve our menu and offerings to satisfy the discriminating taste of our loyal patrons," Zenarosa stressed.

John Lloyd Cruz now joins the roster of endorsers of Turks such as Piolo and Inigo Pascual.

Do you Fall in #MalnutritionTraps ?

The country has been facing the rise on the number of underweight and overweight Filipinos for more than 20 years. The World Health Organization (WHO) defined this phenomenon as the “Double Burden of Malnutrition” or the “prevalence of both undernutrition and overweight in the same community, nation, or region.”

To address this problem, our government launched the Pinggang Pinoy® campaign in 2014. Pinggang Pinoy® is an easy-to-understand food guide showing proper food group portioning on a per-meal basis. This reflects the principles of MOderation, VAriety and BAlance (MOVABA) to promote healthier eating habits.

Solving the Philippines’ Double Burden of Malnutrition should be a collaborative effort between the public and private sectors as it is not an easy feat. With this, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation partnered with government agencies to conduct education programs to raise awareness and promote the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® in malnutrition hotspots, where incidences of Double Burden Malnutrition are high. This training was given to homemakers/mothers who have malnourished (underweight, stunting, wasting, overweight and obese) school-aged children.

The pilot run resulted to improvements of the knowledge & attitudes of households related to the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® within target areas. However, behavior changes towards healthier eating habits remains to be a challenge. The program uncovered a number #MalnutritionTraps that some Pinoy households easily fall into. The following #MalnutritionTraps provide a picture of how unhealthy eating habits may lead to Double Burden of Malnutrition:

Overconsumption of carbohydrates: 
Voracious rice eaters can easily fill half of
their plates with rice. Others have pandesal & noodles as regular meal deprived of other nutrients derived from a well-balanced meal.

Under consumption of vegetables and/fruits:
It is common for some to be content with rice & meat to satisfy their hunger and skip/take insufficient amount of vegetables/fruits. Fact is, the variety of colors found in Glow foods are important sources of vitamins & minerals to sustain our energy & keep us from getting sick.

Overconsumption of protein:
Typical Filipino “SILOG” meals include double serving of proteins (e.g. Tapa+Itlog, Tocino+Itlog, Longanisa+Itlog, Bangus+Itlog). Eating different kinds of protein is fine for as long as they are taken in moderation. We must also avoid protein dishes served high in fat, cholesterol and sodium.

More stories about #MalnutritionTraps can be referenced from these documentary videos:

“Puro Carbs”
“Breakfast Skipper”
“Kulang sa Protina”
“Pamilya Unirice

To help Filipinos break free from #MalnutritionTraps, Ajinomoto’s Culinary Nutrition Team prepared Healthy & Delicious Pinggang Pinoy® Recipes, downloadable through Busy and budget-restricted homemakers will also find these Pinggang Pinoy® recipes useful because all are easy-to-do and affordable (P250/day for family of 5).
