The Green House Effect

I saw this house while I was about to go to work one day. I’m always fascinated by nature and having seen this spectacle, I know I just have to stop, take a moment and admire the view. What I love about it is the greenery that surrounds the house. I’ve always wanted my home to have such luscious view of nature. Unfortunately though, our house is far from being one owing to the fact that I am pretty much out of home the whole day because of work. And in those times when I’m at home, all I did was catch up on my endless list of tv series and be a mother of two kids, suffice it to say that I really don’t have time. There, I said it or I’m just making excuses? I don’t really know, I never once tried to grow a single plant on my own. So I didn’t know if I’m one of those people they say who have green thumbs or not. Nevertheless, I love nature, I love green. I Love the purple flower hanging all over the gate.

Pineapple anyone?
A thing of beauty…

Who knows? Maybe someday I’ll have a home with a Green House Effect – or maybe not. (fingers crossing…)



You may wonder what the title meant. Well, SSG stands for Sinfully and Guiltily Good. Those are the words I was thinking after I’ve had a taste of Porky Best Chicharon, since I’ve declared myself a “trying hard” conscious fella about what I eat as much as possible (I’m constantly trying – and failing – to loose weight this past few days).

I was at Gaisano Grand Mall Digos when I saw this cart, cooking chicharon on the spot. It wasn’t the first time I saw this cart, in fact I always pass by it every time I go to the mall’s Food Court Area. I always thought that chicharon in malls are readily packed and sold (that’s why I wondered why bother putting a cart that sells chicharon when you can just pick it up at the grocery area?) But this time, what caught my attention was, the actual cooking of Chicharon.  Apparently this Porky Best Chicharon cart cooks the product while the customers wait. Now that’s definitely not what I expected.

This is the finished product, they have this display, so the customers have to option to choose newly cooked or the readily packed ones.

The product is adequately priced. I bought the smallest pack for only P29.00 and may I just say, it tastes so good I can’t get enough of one, but nope I didn’t have another.

As tempting as it is, my alter-ego got the better of me coz I decided that once is enough already. When it comes to food I think the golden rule is to “keep everything in moderation”. That said, maybe I’ll have to give in to this indulgence once in a while (like once a month? And no more than one small pack), just to satisfy my rather  insatiable taste for salty foods.
