๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นFOOD STUFF SHOPPING IN MILAN – LAST DAY IN MILAN ๐Ÿงณ iTravelย 

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณOn the last day of our stay in Milan. We go around frustrated and really don’t wanna go home to work and live home and under this day. Although this is our first travel after the Pandemic also the first travel of this year 2022. We went shopping for some stuff for cooking. And I got my Starbucks cup too. We tried also the Branch of Jollibee in Milan and I tell you frankly, we are not satisfied with all the taste. We are used to European style already. It’s all strange for me. And for my daughter too, being born in Europe and we don’t have Jollibee in Vienna. Anyway, the following day we are leaving Milan and will be back in mundane activities in Vienna. Looking forward to the next travel vlog somewhere in Europe or in an Asian country.

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญHAPUNAN-DINNER-ABENDESSEN WITH MY HOME PREP MEAL

HOW TO…….

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณThe best time for dinner is between 5pm and 7pm. This gives the stomach and intestines enough time to digest the food they eat before the metabolism switches to sleep mode at night. The stress of the day is over, and the work is done. But in our case, if you are working from 11:30 before noontime until 10pm then you travel on the way home we need almost 30 minutes. Arrive at home almost half an hour before 11 pm then I have to cook for dinner. But luckily tonight I was already at around 6 pm so I have enough time to prepare our meal. So for tonight’s meal every Filipino, sinigang with Sea Bream and Shrimps, and fried squid. For dessert, I made a fruit cocktail with sour cream and grapes. Hubby is happy and of course my tummy too. I love the vegetables that it goes with this viand. happy prepping everyone.

1 Sea Bream

2oog Shrimp

a bunch of Spinach

3 Chilis

2 tbsps. Sinigang Seasoning

๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡นANOTHER GASTRONOMIC ADVENTURE WITH AN EX-COLLEAGUE – CELEBRATED CHINESE NEW YEAR – EAT-OUT DINNER

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ Event gastronomy in Vienna, the culinary attractions in Vienna are diverse. If you are looking for something for everyone who is enthusiastic about a meal with a high entertainment value and event character, Vienna has a lot to offer. But these are small Restaurants in the city that are run by Asian people whom we love to try from time to time. Exempted is the Vegan ice which is run by Austrian and the Krah Krah Restaurant in the First District of Vienna which I tried with my ex-colleague. First Stop, lunch at Krah Krah Restaurant run by Austrian. 1980s Ale pub with the garden serving international food and drink including giant sandwiches. Rabensteig 8 A-1010 Vienna

The next one is one of our favourite Restaurants near Naschmarkt. With authentic Asian Cuisine. Restaurant Chinazentrum Zhong Xin For more than 15 years they have been spoiling guests from all over the world with traditional Chinese food and drinks at the Naschmarkt in 1060 Vienna. A Far Eastern ambience awaits you in our restaurant. “Zhongxin” means centre and their first location from 2002-to 2014 was on Rechte Wienzeile 29, 1040 Vienna. In 2014 they relocated to 1060 Vienna. Linke Wienzeile 44 1060 Vienna

The third one is Soya Noodles their meals are inspired by simple Asian cuisine. Prepare them daily from fresh ingredients and they do not use glutamate. They love coconut, ginger, chilli and Thai basil, so you can find them in most of their meals. AmerlingstraรŸe 19, A-1060 Vienna

The last one is the Veganista Ice Cream. Run by two sisters who have been vegan for over 20 years and have been passionately pursuing a big dream: to produce honest and delicious ice cream. No artificial flavours, colours or powders. Simply the best ice cream with the best ingredients. AmerlingstraรŸe 19, Vienna

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญDAING NA BANGUS (Milk Fish)- LUGAW (RicePorridge) WITH PORK LOIN IN UMAMI SAUCE & TOFU – SAUTEED CHAYOTE๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸณiCook

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ”Kamayan na”, eating by hands no fork and spoon. Fried daing na Bangus, boiled okra and eggplant, spring onion and tomato, bagoong with chilli, and basmati rice. For breakfast, rice porridge (lugaw) topped with tofu and pork loin in umami sauce. Then my sauteed chayote with broccoli, carrot and ground meat, seasoned with mushroom sauce for lunch and dinner too. I love it, very Filipino. That’s all for today’s meal prepping at home.

TAGALOG: ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณPagkaing kinalakihan kung saan naging tao. Masarap at masustansiya rin na nakakapagbigay tulong sa ating kalusugan. Huwag lamang sobrahan gaya ng bagoong. Maalat na hindi maganda kung masobrahan nang kain. Dahil sa alta presyon o mataas na blood pressure ganon din sa puso. Bawat bagay na sobra ay hindi maganda sa kalusugan. Ah! basta masarap lahat ito. Nakaka miss kumain nang ganito lalo na kapag sa ibayong dagat ka naninirahan tulad ko. Salamat at kahit papaano ay may mabibili o may pagkukunan kahit na dito sa Vienna na kung saan ako ay naninirahan mahigit tatlong dekada na. Maraming salamat sa biyaya panginoon naming mapagmahal.

GASTRONOMIC ADVENTURE in VIENNA

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณA sort of tourism that is based on visiting food festivals, restaurants and special places in order to taste a special and not so special type of food, to watch the food being produced or to eat food cooked by a famous chef, and today it is quite popular also for me as an individual. My family always loves it if I bring them with me anywhere where I decided to try something. But most of the time hubby and I. I don’t want to sound like an epicure, but when it comes to food my love is there at the highest level sometimes I am delighted in fine food. I hope you like this video for today, thank you so much for joining me. If you live in the vicinity of Vienna, this is for you.

ANOTHER HIKING DAY with MY DOG MARY๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ•

Another hiking day for the three of us, my niece and daughter with my doggy Mary and her mom Riyana my daughter’s dog.

Hiking day and walks around Puchberg

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณI’m a type 2 diabetic hiking is also recommended, as it lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases and increases physical and mental well-being. However, diabetes patients should keep an eye on their blood sugar levels when hiking to avoid fluctuations in blood sugar. Sport is important for diabetes patients. Moderate but regular physical activity improves the performance of the heart, the oxygen supply and lowers the blood sugar level. Endurance sports are particularly suitable for people with diabetes mellitus. However, they should not strive for records, but pay attention to their energy reserves. Hiking is a popular sport, in Austria and Germany around 40 million people are active hikers. Diabetics can also practice hiking, as can walking. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณThank you so much for dropping by and please like, share and subscribe for more Videos and recipes around the Globe and Eating and Hiking as Medicine on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL.——-Dolly here

Feeling like sorry ๐Ÿ˜ for myself since July 25, 2019. The day I tried to be strong but it doesn’t work for me.๐Ÿฅบ I thought I am, until now I’m still fighting. I should always remind myself:

“Don’t let the critics let you down.” ——-unknown

“Choose the hills wisely on which you must do battle.” ——-unknown

Thanks God of reminding me,

He is my refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble. Therefore I will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though it’s water roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. โ€ข Psalm 46:1-3

Slowly but surely my blog helps me out with my struggles. It makes me happy. ๐Ÿ˜Œ Every time I want to post or write something here it eases me.
