Its Rainy Day

When I woke up in the morning I feel the cold and rainy weather. Just because they have another typhoon name Jolina. I really glad because in our place is not affected the flood because the other nearest places is also affected the Jolina’s typhoon. Well, after one month is also ber month, and we know that this is Christmas is coming. You can feel the cold and bad weather condition. Anyway, just because of the rainy days hubby cooked the macaroni soup for our snack.  Although its rainy day hubby bought 1 pc, of chicken and ingredients of macaroni soup, near in the market. Hubby is a kind person, and after he cooked the macaroni soup he also prepared disposable cups and according to him he gives the all customer in our computer shop. This is not the first time he did to our customer. I think this is the bright idea to encourage more customers in our shop. Good job hubby!

Tahong shell or saltwater mussel is one of my favorite food. Hubby cooked tahong as our lunch.  The soup of this tahong is the best served when hot.  There are a lot of health benefits that you can get the tahong such as high inn protein, selenium, iodine, and heart health omega 3 fatty acids. And for the muscles are relatively low in fat and calories.
