Philippine Park:Tasty Tempura Sauce

Parks in the Philippines are usually crowded on the weekends. Kids don’t have classes and some parents don’t go to work making it a rightful occasion to visit the park and play like the other kids.

The fun slide that my son used to play with the other kids on the park.

But what really excites me and my husband is not the park itself but the tempura that is sold just in any corner of the park. They make the playground livelier and what makes it salable is the tasty sauce normally in its sweet and spicy combination to give a varied taste for the kids and the adults.

Lame Ang Sauce Tilaw Lang means ” The Sauce Is Tasty, Just Try”

The tempura stand is made up of a three-wheeled bike that can easily be drawn anywhere the owner wants.

Yes, the owner can move the cart just anywhere in the place. Cart owners normally carry with them orange juice or soda to pair with the tempura they’re selling. For some they even have more snacks for the kids to choose from that includes corned chips, popcorn, corn grits, salted peanuts, biscuits and many more.

My son love tempura most with a sweetened sauce. He can’t endure the spicy one. A stick normally cost 10 pesos that around 25 cents in dollar so it’s not that expensive for parents to have. Very affordable I thought.

It costs 10 pesos a stick or more or less 25 cents in dollar. Affordable and delicious.

A True Story of a Man: Love And Family

Not all love ends well. But the consolation is, it always brings forth hope, sacrifice, and lesson and the most importantly it brings life.

Once there was man named Shehzadje who belonged to a poor family. His father is an electrician and his mother is a house wife. His life is full of sorrow. Family, parents, siblings, and even loves life. He once had a problem that hit him hard and cut his heart deep. He fell in love with his own cousin, Lubna.

In Pakistan, falling in love with a relative is possible. Arranged marriages have been an integral part of Pakistani society for years and it is traditional to have arranged marriages. Arranged matches are made after taking into account factors such as the wealth and social standing of their families. A marriage can also be made within the extended family such as between cousins.

But what’s sad about this story was it’s a one sided love. Lubna refused him and doesn’t want to be loved by Shehzadje. Things were getting complicated. Both families were already involved with the situation. One big problem he had was his father who kept angry toward him.

When he was on the 7th grade, that even to his inexperienced, he still came to realize many things about the reality of life. Eventually, he joined his father’s shop to be a help. His father used to play cards and indulged into vices and most of the time lost a huge amount of money. The shop’s sales weaken that the he has to handle it with care. He can’t afford to loose it. But his father is still ungrateful to him. Anytime he called him thief and much more abusive words which I don’t care to write here.

Shehzadje is a well-mannered man that every one would tend to like him. And since the shop was too weak for him to save, he effort to work some other occupations like making samosa– a stuffed pastry and a popular snack in South Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, and the Mediterranean. He also made pakora– a fried snack seen in Asia created from one or two ingredients such as onion, eggplant, potato and many more. After some time the sales weaken again and so he joined to become a taxi driver.

He drove taxi on the road and made money for his family. After 2 years his joined driving taxi and got engaged with a woman in his village. But his father still didn’t like him that most of the time he called him mediocre that he didn’t work very well. He didn’t want to argue and so ignored any talk from his father and work hard instead. He took care of his family and faced many problems and accomplished them very well.

He has two brothers and because of his determination he made them strong enough. He can afford to give all for them. That’s how he loves his brothers. But his father was never happy with him. One time, for the love for his brother he gave his own taxi for him to have his own earnings but his father couldn’t appreciate that.

Shehzadje joined his friend’s taxi and after a couple of years he got married but didn’t enjoy his new life. After two days of his marriage, his father fought with him that he couldn’t go to work for several reasons. At that time he didn’t have money and didn’t have any work. So he talked with his friend to accept him as a laborer.

He struggled hard and took his own shop in the new village and work there hard. He made the shop so stable. In contrary to that, his father was not happy and fought with him at any time for the small amount of money he brought home.

After one year, his wife got pregnant, gave birth to a one cute little child names Shehreyar. As expected his father never felt happy about it but instead fought with him. After some time his brother was without work. He gave him some money to work but lost it. With a few amount of money, his brother bought another taxi for him but he was not angry. He can never be angry with his brother.

He has to find another taxi. Good thing, his friend’s taxi was in standby so he asked him to drive that and earned. Not for long, his brother’s friend took the taxi from him and left him without work.

Shehzadje’s life was a roller coaster. Until now he is still fighting for life. but he never lost hope. He never feels tired to continue. He was inspired t o live for his family, his brothers, his wife and now his baby Shehreyar. He continued to take the quest and never give up. He has still the faith that he can do it.

Recently, Shehzadje bought a new taxi for him. He is now happy and contented with life along with his new shop. His father pushed him to separate but never did he think of doing that. In Pakistani culture and society, any son who separates from his parents is misunderstood as neglectful and rude towards his parents. So even to his father’s idea to detach, he still didn’t. He is such a good man, a humble son, a kind brother, a loving husband and hopefully a model father to his son.

Would he stay the same? I hope.

Older Woman, Younger Man in Marriage

The world has changed a lot and it keeps changing. The past was far beyond the present. And the changes are quite obvious.

Centuries ago, men normally searched for women at least in their age or mostly younger than them. This is due to the norms in the past, making women subject for men. Men in the past ruled and dominated, making them the authority at home as well as in the society. At that time woman’s opinion are rarely accepted. And mostly, they are rejected and taken without importance.

Since people evolved in their way of living, concepts, views and approaches also transcend. The present turns out to be the total opposite of the past at times.

Today, relationships and even marriages is assimilated adversely by most conservatives. And one of the issues which are commonly misunderstood is the marriage between an older woman and a younger man.

Unavoidably true, men nowadays tend to look for woman older than them. A few contradict but the trend is unstoppable. In America and in some parts of Europe, the case is not already taken as an issue. Recently, a few in some parts of Asia embraces it.

Among them, thousands of couple is believed to be successful. It proves that huge age gaps and age differences between spouses don’t really affects the success in marriage.

How many old people act immature? How many older husbands pass their burdens to their younger wives? And how many marriages turn out happy even in the huge differences? It’s the understanding and love that matters not the said differences.

Perhaps, the world has opened its eyes and considers things even if it’s far beyond the norms. I for one agree that age doesn’t matter but the maturity of the person does.

How Do Pheromones Operates to Human Mind?

Simply true, humans appear to have an active pheromones and is read by a cell tissue in our brain–the most important organ involved associated with behavior.
Pheromones are chemical signals first discovered as a sex attractant in insects. Science recorded several study regarding a particular chemical excreted by an insect that triggers a social response from the members of the same species.

But do pheromones operate the same way in mammals? Accordingly, reproductively relevant social-environmental odor cues may interact with the genetic substrates of mammalian behavior. Simply true, humans also appear to have have an active pheromones and is read by a cell tissue in our brain–the most important organ involved associated with behavior.

How does pheromones function to humans? Pheromones function in the selection of a partner and even in dealing with the people surrounding a person that aggregates pheromones. This has been found strongly with the famous CCleopatra.

Nowadays, there are few perfume and cologne products which are said to have the chemicals needed to attract the opposite sex. But there’s this truth that I want to tell you. We have enough chemicals in our body that attracts the man who is suited for the pheromones we possess.

Truly love is a mystery. There are thousands of reasons and explanations of why a man falls in love to woman. But what ever is true. We all know that human beings as we are,  are capable of falling not just with the superficial.
