Pork burger steak

There are many variations of burgers like hamburgers or beefburgers, chicken burger, cheeseburger, vegetable burger and many more.  

This time i am going to introduce another easy cooking tip.  

My pork burger steak :) 


Pork belly meat (cut into stripes or thin slices), 
onion, cabbage, flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper, 
Sauce--- worcestershire or worcestor sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce, mirin, sugar.

How to cook:

Pour a flour on the plate ...then lay the pork belly on a plate ...sprinkle with salt and pepper ...then garlic powder or minced garlic.  Mash the meat then form the meat in one patty ... flatten the top and sides to ensure that the thickness is the same throughout.  

 Heat the pan with olive oil,  fry the meat  both sides ... 
Then set aside.  

Saute onion in the pan, put worcestershire sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce, mirin, sugar.
Add meat.  

Prepare the cut into wedges cabbage on a plate, place the meat on top of it and pour the sauce to the meat.

Steve jobs’ Last Words

Inspiring thoughts ... 

Just same thoughts when i suffered and fought off breast cancer ... that's the time i learned how to value more my life ... my family and love ones and most of all ... our Saviour and Creator ... our Almighty God who healed me and saved me ... Thank you so much for another chance to live.  
 No matter how rich we are ...we can't take our Earthly treasures with us to heaven ... Generosity is a treasure we can take with us though.  If we give on Earth, we will be given to while in Heaven. That's a simple fair promise.
Dont forget ... health is wealth too ;-)  

Steve jobs’ Last Words -

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.

In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:

Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days ...

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.

What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? - "Sick bed" …

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – "Life".

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – "Book of Healthy Life".

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends...

Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

Philippine NAKAMA at UTAWIT Grand Final

My Philippine NAKAMA group travelled all the way from Shizuoka to give support and cheer for our Shizuoka representative, Gina here in Tokyo for the Grand Final of UTAWIT 2015. 
Then ... i just waited for the group here in Tokyo and met them all at the venue in Akasaka Shimin Center.
As to be expected ...Gina did a great performance of her IKAW version. 
The 11 finalist from different regions were all good ... however,  i did bet that our Shizuoka representative has a great chance to win this time.  Not because she is a friend or she is our representative.  Gina's performance was outstanding.  Many kababayan said that our representative was terrific and not impossible if she will win.  
When the final result was announced ... unfortunately, we were unable to get any place ... quite disappointing ...but that's it ... we maybe did not win but we learned :P 
Anyway,  Gina is still a winner in my heart and i am sure many felt the same way too. 
Thanks to UTAWIT organizers and participants ... we will try our luck again next time. 
Thanks to all my NAKAMA family who supported this event and thanks be to God that they arrived safe back home to Shizuoka.
