Savor the deliciousness of the new Porksavor™


Filipinos love food with strong meaty flavors, which is why saucy, soupy or stir-fried dishes would usually be accentuated with pork meat or broth. It is for this reason that Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) came up with a new product called Porksavor™ All-in-One Seasoning.

Porksavor™ is made from natural pork meat extract and bone broth, complete with spices and seasonings to bring out the deliciousness of home-cooked dishes. The new Porksavor™ is available in 8-gram packs for only PhP 2.00 Suggested Retail Price (SRP). It is truly an affordable way to draw pork flavor goodness in dishes without the cholesterol.

Here are some appetizing recipes that you can try using Porksavor™ All-in-One Seasoning:

Back to School: Advice for Elijah

It’s been more than a month since Elijah started going to Prep and I can see that he is enjoying and learning new things.

We are still adjusting because Elijah’s class starts at 7:30 am. We have to wake up at 6:00 am because he tends to move and eat very slow. We also have to sleep very early, like around 9:00 pm, so there will be no crying when it is time to wake up in the morning.

Below are the advice I give to my son every single day.

  • Always wear a smile.
  • Teacher said “do not talk to each other” but it is okay to talk to your teacher when needed and also to your seat mate during break time.
  • Talk very slowly and clear.
  • Always raise your hand if you know the answer.
  • Write.
  • Sleep every afternoon.
  • Finish your snack.
  • Homework now, iPad later.
  • Be active.
  • Brush your teeth before taking a bath. ( He insist on using Swish Mouthwash but I said he can when he he is big enough)

We have bottles of Swish Mouthwash ( a quality product of Unilab) in the bathroom and he keeps on asking why are we using it and when can he use it. I told him it is for adults only and it keeps our breathe fresh during the day.

Elijah is the youngest among his classmates and I do not expect him to be on top of their class. Let us not push our kids too much as learning is not a competition.
