SECRET REVEALED: Mocked Tuna and White Onion Omelette

Is it true? Mashed Chickpeas tasted like tuna? Hmmmn... I remember one of my girl from the pre-blogging group who hates tuna, when I first read about this mocked tuna. I got curious and tried it right away :)  Is it yum? Will she be able to eat this even if there's no tuna, only it taste like it?

Well, let's all find out!!! :D

I only have 1 photo for this post ( I've accidentally deleted the file and only have my final pic from my instagram account downloaded... btw please follow me @ljs_haven01) and here it is!


Looks delish right? :D

Here's the how to's of this über yummy dish I've concocted.

  • 1 large bulb of white onion
  • 3 eggs 
  • 1/2 ts of cumin
  • pinch of salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 can chickpeas (peeled and mashed)
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil or olive oil
  • (2) 1/2 cm slice of white cheese (goat cheese)
  • a bit of parsley or celery to garnish (optional)
  • Beat the 3 eggs in a bowl then add cumin, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Put the oil into a pan and sauté the onions. Add the chickpeas stir fry for a minute.
  • Then add the egg mixture. When the omelette is almost done put the cheese on top and let it cooked for at least 30 seconds more.
  • Serve while it's hot 
Sooooo Eeeaasssyyyy Right?
Now It's your turn to try it and let me know if it is justifiable to call the chickpeas mocked tuna :D

Happy Tummy Me once again :D


"My" Hot and Spicy Korean Rice Cake (Ddeokbokki)

Spicy Korean Rice Cake? Hmmmnn..I want please!!!

Yeah, I'm drooling to have korean spicy rice cakes right now so I'm making my own :D

My Spicy Korean rice cake was made from scratch! :D
I tried to do my homemade long cylinder shaped rice cakes or garaeddok or garaetteok :)


  • 2 cups glutinous rice flour
  • 1/2 ts salt
  • 3/4 cup of boiling water if using a microwave, 1 cup if using a steamer
  • 1 ts sesame oil


Making rice cake with a microwave
  • Combine the rice flour, salt, and boiling water in a bowl
  • Cover it with plastic wrap, leaving a small gap to let the steam release and microwave it for 2 minutes
  • Mix the rice cake dough with a wooden spoon, recover with the plastic wrap and cook for another 2 minutes
  • Spread 1/2 ts sesame oil to the chopping board, put the rice cake in the oily spot and pound with a pestle for 5 minutes until its smooth and elastic.
Prepare the rice cakes for ddeokbokki (spicy rice cake)

  • Cut it into 8 equal parts and roll each part into a 4 inch cylinder shaped rice cake
  • Put ½ ts sesame oil onto your hands and gently rub the rice cakes to coat them in a thin sheen of oil. This will give them a nice flavor and keep them from sticking to each other.

  • long cylinder shaped rice cake (homemade) or 1 pound bought from grocery stores
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 shrimp cube (for the broth)
  • 1/3 cup hot pepper paste (gochujang)
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 3 green onions (onion springs) cut into 3 inch long pieces
  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 250 gms of squidballs
  • Add the water, and shrimp cube in a shallow pan.
  • Bring to a boil for 15 minutes over medium high heat without the lid.
  • Combine hot pepper paste, hot pepper flakes, and sugar in a small bowl. Remove the anchovies and kelp from the pot and add the rice cake, the mixture in the bowl, the green onion, and the optional fish cakes and hard boiled eggs.

  • Stir gently with a wooden spoon when it starts to boil. Keep stirring until the rice cake turns soft and the sauce thickens and looks shiny, which should take about 7 to 10 minutes
  • Remove from the heat and serve hot.
**recipe credits to: though I've made some substitutions of the ingredients according to the items availability here in my place.

Be sure to serve it while it's hot because it is more tasty :D Also, I've used glutinous rice flour here which makes the rice cakes to soft. So, if you are planning to do your homemade long cylinder shaped rice cake use rice flour instead to make it more firm.

I love spicy foods. Do you? If so can you share some recipes for me to try?
I'd love to hear from you... till next post ladies and gents :D


SEXY AND SULTRY: June Saladbox Unboxing...

Since I received my May Box late I've expected already that my June Box will be delivered on the 3rd week of the month. Was I wrong? Hmmmn... Yes! I received the box just yesterday!!! However, that didn't ruined my excitement to take a peak inside the box and wonder if I'll have the same items as those ladies who were able to received their boxes earlier than me.

This months team is SEXY AND SULTRY....


This box looks neater than the first one (May)

TADA!!! Got 6 Items for this month.

Here are the items included in the box:

Full Size 3.8g Php 250

Full Size 9ml Php 270

Sample Size / Full Size 50ml Php 960

I love most of the items specially the nail lacquer shade. However, I'm not really a fan of anything that is shimmering like the Amuse lipstick, but I'll still give it a try and post my review.

Overall, I think Saladbox still have great items on their box and definitely worth the money. This box alone cost Php 1099 in total, so I was able to save Php 599. The only downside is their delivery promptness. Oh well, staff said they will have a better delivery this month as they already change their courier. I still have one more box (July) to wait so let's see if delivery will have an improvement. If so I will renew my subscription :)

Marinated Chicken in Garlic,Cumin and Calamansi Pockets ♥

I am so determined  to once again lose weight, so I jog, I do Zumba Exhilarate, Hip Hop Abs and Combat Workout... hahahaha do I sound like an exercise addict? Anyways exercise will not gonna work if you won't include proper meal planning. Now I have the exhilarate pack that includes recipes of the food that you'll need to eat for 10 days. However, some of the ingredients are not available here or so expensive. So, here's what I did. I either experiment or reinvent the recipes based on the exhilarate meal plan :)

Here's one sample of my reinvented recipe :D

Marinated Chicken in Cumin and Calamansi Pockets

What you need for the recipe:

For the Marinated Chicken
10 calamansi (juiced and seeded, can use 2 lemon instead of calamansi)
1 tbsp of cumin powder
pinch of salt
1 cloves of garlic (chopped)
4 cuts of chicken breast skin and bone removed

  • Mix everything together and marinade for about 3 hours. 
  • Preheat non stick skillet on the stove top. Fry the chickens, turning occasionally to avoid burnt meat.
  • Set aside the cooked chicken meat for later use.
Here's the cooked marinated chicken in garlic, cumin and calamansi

For the pita pockets, you can either buy at the nearest grocery store or make your own "no yeast" pita/tortilla. Click here

Now here's what you got to do with those meat and pita breads.

You will need:
1 ripe avocado, sliced
1 ripe mango, sliced
3 tomatoes, seeded and cut into small cubes
1 big white onion, cut into small cubes
3 green chillis, sliced thinly
4 marinated chicken,sliced (you can also use beef and pork if you want)
some mayonnaise and hot sauce (optional)


Cut the pita into halves, open the pockets and put everything inside according to how much of each ingredients you like. Put some mayonnaise and hot sauce for additional taste. Though I prefer mine without the mayonnaise. A little hot sauce will do though. :)

And here's my lunchie ...

Yum!!! Do you also love to eat healthy? Share me some healthy food tips so I can try them too! :))


Apocalypse II - Revelation (The Movie)

***transferred from my old blog

I watched Revelation (movie) after I got baptized 11 years ago. The conversation between "satan" and Thorold Stone still lingers in my mind. T'was amazing how a person who didn't believe in God before the rapture can be firm on  his belief during the tribulation times. Let me share how Thorold battles with satan during the tribulation's days of wonders.

Thorold got acquainted with the "haters"(believers of God) through Willy, the programmer who designs the day of wonders virtual world and the stepbrother of Helen Hannah a TV reporter who announces on air that Franco Macalouso (Satan) is the beast (anti-christ).  They were set to put a virus on the program, but while they were looking to the base hub Cindy (blind lady) and Willy (wheel chair bound) tried the virtual reality glasses to enter the world of wonders and  both got deceived and received the mark of the beast (666). Now, Willy ask Thorold who is already set to upload the virus, that he needs to put the glasses and have the day of wonders play before he can upload the virus (they were trying to deceived him because of their allegiance with the anti-christ). So, Thorold put on the glasses and here's what happen inside the day of  wonders....

Satan > Welcome to the day of wonders Thorold Stone. They've been waiting for us.

Thorold > Where am I?

S > Well, it's a little bit of heaven, only better.
       (Satan showed Thorold's wife and daughter who were raptured while they were playing in the park)

Wife > Don't abandon us again Thorold it's time to put up your mind and listen to him, its the only way.

S > Take a look at them Thorold, exactly as you remembered. You know why? Because they are inside of you (pointing Thorolds heart) everything that is here is inside of you.. that's why I'm here to teach you, that's what the day of wonders is all about. For you, It's your family for others  it's something else, but all of it can be yours. All you have to do is believe, know who I am and believe. You can  have everything you want. Everything.

Wife > Please Thorold you can be with us today.

T > (close his eyes) What about the rest of eternity? (wife cant answer so is satan)
      Whoa! I'm so wrong about you. I actually  think your an alien.

      (satan laugh)

S > Yes I know. (continue laughing) And now you believe? Don't you?

T > Now, I believe . (Teary-eyed)

S > Now all you have to do is give me your pledge of allegiance and everything you ever dreamed of will be yours.

T > Your not about love at all. I  would rather believe my Creator who would die for his creation than his creation would die for him.

S > My Son.

T > I . Am. Not. Your. Son. satan., (satan getting pissed and mad) and  they are not my family.
  I know where my family is, where they'd be  safe from you  for eternity.

 (satan now shows his true self)

S > So be it, you made your choice. (family image vanished) now you'll pay the price. Not even your God can save you.

T > He already is...

Satan  made a snake-like hissing sound, two soldiers appear and Thorold was tortured and  he was being locked up in the guillotine table.

T>   (satan go near him) the day of wonders, you  make them say they worship you or they'll  die?

S >  I don't have to make them, they have to worship me. you know why? do you? because I give them everything they want just like Eve in the garden of Eden, they snap it up in a second and those who don't will die. So either way, I win.  Pretty soon everything in this world will be mine, earth will be mine and there's no reason  for God to come back  on this earth.

T> I know for all of us who say no. What about those who said yes? What have they done?

S >  You should know, but by then its going to be too late. Once they made the pledge of allegiance they will all be mine for eternity and those that aren't are dead . Its a wonderful day, dont you think?

T > Lord I did not know you in my life, by your grace may I do so in death.

S > Very touching. Goodbye Thorold...(drops guillotine blade)....

Thorold did not receive the mark of the beast. He might not been spared from cutting his head out of his body, but his soul will join the other believers who were raptured because he didn't receive the mark and he is ready to die for God.

The video below is the copy of  the whole movie better watch it and be aware. Don't wait for this things to happen first before you receive Christ as your personal Lord God and Savior.

Act Now!!! Accept Christ as you personal Savior and let this prayer be your guide.

Here's a a video copy of the full movie.


Pacquiao vs. Marquez (4)

***transferred from my old blog

 After Church yesterday first thing that I notice when I got home was the group of people in the living room all anxious. Then I remember t'was one of those Pacquiao fights that they don't wanna miss. I am not a boxing enthusiast so I just tried to catch a glimpse on the boob tube to see if Marquez already have the hey-my-face-have-blood-paint look just like what Manny does to his previous opponent. To my surprise Marquez was the one who punched Pacquiao so hard that he looks like he just saw a thousand stars circling around his head. That's the last scene I saw from the fight before I went upstairs to accompany my baby cousin while he sleeps. Few minutes later people downstairs were screaming (was actually thinking that Pacquiao already beats Marquez into a pulp), which later on I've discovered was because Pacquiao was Knockout during round 6.

    No big deal for me since I'm not a boxing fan I don't wanna join the hype of the post Pacquiao/Marquez fight. Well, not until I saw a news about Pacquiao's mom blaming Pastors over Pacquiao's lost and some netizens telling him that he shouldn't have change his religion.

    Seriously, people don't think first before they post/comment something. This kind of reaction from the people makes me sad. Why do people now preach that Manny losing over Marquez was because of his new found faith or what others say his new "religion". Wake up people; is this what we think of God who created us into His likeness? Who justifieth us from all our iniquities? God doesn't favor one religion over the other. One's religion is not important; it is your personal relationship with God. Losing doesn't mean you weren't favored. 

   I am not a fan of Manny, but because of how he handle his loss and how in a small way he proved that he was a totally changed man. Manny Pacquiao is a Grand slam winner for me, because at the end of the fight...

        ...he still have a living God who cares for him.
        ...Marquez may have grabbed his title but not his assurance of eternal life.

      For Manny Pacquiao always remember this...

Romans 12:2 ESV 

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.      


Are you ready for this? Act now before it's too late...

***repost from my old blog


Are you ready for this? Act now before it's too late...

Salvation is a gift from God that will enable you to spend eternity in Heaven. To receive this gift, you need to accept Christ into your life, repent of your sins and begin living a life that is pleasing to God. If you feel you have done too many bad things for God to forgive you, you are wrong. Whether you are old or young, rich or poor, a liar, a thief, an adulterer, a murderer and so on, if you truly repent in your heart and accept Jesus, YOU WILL BE SAVED... Say the Prayer of Salvation & Ask Jesus Into Your Heart Now


Please note: The Salvation Prayer (sometimes referred to as the Sinner's Prayer) below, isn't any "official prayer" but rather a sample prayer to follow when asking Jesus into your heart. You can pray to God in your own words.

Regarding the location of the Sinner's Prayer in the Bible? Well, there isn't one mentioned; it is only implied. The basis of the Sinner's Prayer comes from Romans 10:9-10. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

Salvation Prayer

Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.

I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.

You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.

Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.

Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.

If you just said this prayer and you meant it with all your heart and you have repented for your sins, we believe that you just got saved and are born again. You may ask, "Now that I am saved, what's next?" First of all you need to get into a bible-based church, and study God's Word. Once you have found a church home, you will want to become water-baptized. By accepting Christ you are baptized in the spirit, but it is through water-baptism that you show your obedience to the Lord. Water baptism is a symbol of your salvation from the dead. You were dead but now you live, for the Lord Jesus Christ has redeemed you for a price! The price was His death on the cross. May God Bless You!

A Mother's Day Letter to my Mom :D

***repost from my old blog

I guess the surprise mother's day celebration for the Liberty Baptist Church Mommies is already finished so that means I'm free to post here my mother's day message to my Mom. :)

It’s that time of the month again,when kids start to think what will be the best gift they will give to their moms. The downside is not every kid has means to buy gifts and not everyone has the opportunity to be with their moms on this special occasion. Well, one of those kids happens to be me, though not a child anymore I’m still young at heart and because my mom looks so young with her age I need to catch up, hahaha… enough of those antics this was supposed to be a mother’s day message to my ever dearest and ever beautiful mom(It’s not obvious that I’m a proud daughter right?) Now let’s get serious.

To Mrs. Imelda Cayanan Ocampo, you don’t know how proud and blessed we are to have you as a mom, best friend, confidante and uh “rival”sometimes  :D  We are blessed to have a God-fearing mom whose life is a living proof how God favors people with a selfless heart and a great faith.  We are so blessed to have a mom like you who never cease to pray for us, support us and direct us into paths that we will be proud of. As we grow up, and even we are millions of miles away from each other I don’t remember a time when you failed to extend your love for us. Sure there are some misunderstandings and exaggerated debates but those are just proofs that we love each other dearly and that you want the best for us.  When we were young we look up on you as our Hero.  In our young minds you are our hero. You never showed us any signs of hopelessness even though inside you're already breaking.As we grow up we realize that you're also an ordinary woman with no super power,but that realization gives us a new definition of MOM. You became our BEST FRIEND. Maybe not that special just like a hero, but by being our best friend you give us all what we need and the best thing about it is that you are just one hug away from us :) Your life is a great testimony and because of that you made sure that as a faithful servant of God the paths that you take will be well lighted so that we can take the same path you are walking. Thank you for the everyday family devotion that we’ve shared when we were young including papa, because of those devotions we didn’t go completely astray and compromise with what’s in the world. You’ve truly take Proverbs 22:6 by heart and we can see the results now:D it may not be instant but the result is for eternity. :D As I have told you before, a Godly woman will face condemnation and criticisms, but will stand still because God favors her. I'm proud to have a mom who is God-fearing, and because of that you became our living example on how to live a Christian life. You might not be perfect in our human eyes but God knows how pure your heart is. LOVE YOU MAMA, for us you’re perfect. YOU ARE OUR ONE PERFECT FAN :) HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO YOU and to all the mothers in LIBERTY BAPTIST CHURCH.


P.S : we included a video also enjoy!!! :D

My Own Home Made Pita Bread

In order to lose weight I made a meal plan for myself and started customizing the recipes based on their availability here in my place and their cost :) ... I didn't also include yeast in my recipe.

So for my homemade pita here's what I did:

3 cups of flour
1 tsp. of salt
1 tsp oil
1 cup milk
1 tsp calamansi juice
*few extra flour for kneading

1. Combine the flour and salt in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl combine the oil, milk and calamansi juice. 2. Mix now the wet ingredients to the dry one until you were able to form a dough
3. Knead the dough for five minutes.
4. Roll the dough hprizontally and divide it into 12 parts. Knead each part to form a ball.
5. Preheat a skillet or griddle over medium heat fire.
5. Use a rolling pin to roll out the ball approximately 6 inches in diameter. Set aside.
6. Add a drop of oil or butter to the skillet then spread, and lay one circle flat in the pan for 90 seconds or until bubble begin to appear. Flip the other side until slightly browned.
7. Stack the cooked pitas with paper towel in between each one to absorb excess oil and to keep them from sticking together.

*Recipes are from Suzanne Akerman, eHow contributor. I just substituted some ingredients based on their availability at the time I made these pitas.

Now you can have a yummy pita that can serve as your main meal instead of rice. Serve it with your favorite meat or even veggies for vegetarian. You can also try to put Marinated Chicken in Cumin and Calamansi Pockets.

Do you love homemade? How 'bout sharing your recipes too? :)
