My version of Sausage and Mushroom Claypot Rice

Whether you're a newbie in the kitchen, unable to get some Chinese food nearby or just want to change the game on your usual bowl of rice, this is one of the easiest things you can do for yourself and your loved ones! 

When I made this, I only used a normal cooking pot and ingredients in my pantry, but you can go ahead and add more veggies  - I recommend using bok choy or gai lan if you have them. This recipe is super flexible - from using different kinds of rice or adding meats / poultry like chicken, pork, beef or duck.

This dish kinda reminds me of that time where I tried some claypot rice with abalone. It was so luxurious I almost cried. 

For me, I think the key elements to a good claypot rice is the rice (duh haha), the use of chinese sausage and the sweet salty sauce that you pour over once it's done before serving. You can play around different condiments to go along with it such as chili garlic sauce and hoisin. Most supermarkets here in Manila can give you access to good Chinese staples like chinese sausage, dark soy sauce and rice wine so don't worry if you don't have them at the moment.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp vegetable oil 
1 cup uncooked rice, washed and drained
1 stalk leeks, chopped
1 1/2 cups water
1 small can of shitake mushrooms, sliced
1 chinese sausage, sliced
1 tbsp Chicken Hot Pot Soup Base (I used Lee Kum Kee)
Chopped green onion

Like making risotto, I toasted the washed rice for a bit with some oil and leeks. Add the water, sausage and mushrooms and hot pot soup base and mix before simmering like you would normally cook rice.

Sauce:
1 tsp chopped ginger
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp regular soy sauce
1 tbsp cooking rice wine
1/2 tsp sesame oil

Pour the sauce on top of the cooked rice. Serve it as is or mix it thoroughly before serving. Enjoy!

My Snow Caps Review: The Effects Of Taking Snow Caps Oral Glutathione Capsules

There was a time where I was actually afraid of taking vitamins and food supplements because I was worried it would just make me feel bloated and fat. That time, I was young, naïve and a bit careless. It was the same case until I reached mid-20s and I started to look after myself even more.   So I decided to take vitamins every now and then to help me get through the daily stress and inevitable circumstances of drinking with friends. But never did I imagine that I will be taking glutathione, simply because I don't have a goal of having white and fair skin. I love my brown color, thank you very much. Little did I know that the effects of Gluthathione are far more impressive from what I know. Naturally, glutathione is produced by the liver and is considered as ont of the most powerful antioxidants which inhibits the production of toxins and free radicals. These toxins are usually caused by stress and other external lifestyle factors such as drinking, smoking and fatigue.

A Traveller's Guide When Eating Tamilok In Palawan

I'm not sure if it's just me, but if you are travelling in Palawan, you would notice that that a lot of the locals would know exactly what to say when it comes to the go-to tourist spots, especially promoting their exotic  Tamilok.

But just in case you might be itching for  Tamilok, you should also know that there are certain rules to abide by. And this is just a quick guide when purchasing  Tamilok in Palawan. THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO PALAWAN'S FAMOUS TAMILOK     -Tamilok, thanks to Google, becomes a familiar term when you search for it. One of the locals told me that "it's not a wood, and it's not a worm". I'm not sure if you guys have encountered that same local
