Rodney On Rainy Days

This guy is feelin' blue. It's been raining for days and it means Dad can't go to the beach with him for an early morning jog, again.... and he's not allowed to go out alone.

Poor Rodney!

Hmmm, better take a nap, then... and dream about sunny days and good times!

Siomai Dumplings

I've been craving for dumplings. So, as I requested, me and Mom cooked steamed siomai dumplings yesterday.

Here are the Ingredients:

1 kg ground pork
3/4 cup chopped carrots
2 tbsp or 4 cloves minced garlic
2 medium/1 large minced onion(s)
spring onions
1 egg
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon salt
siomai wrapper


1. Combine all the ingredients for the filling in a bowl.

2. Wrap about 1 tsp of meat in each wrapper until nothing is left unfilled.

4. Boil water and brush steamer with oil and when the water gets to boil, arrange the siomai in the steamer and let stand for 15-20 minutes, longer for larger pieces.

For the Chilli Sauce:

Chillies (Siling Labuyo)
3 tablespoons cooking oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

***Sautee garlic and chopped chillies


I prefer fried siomai with soy sauce, calamansi and chilli sauce.

Google Drive

Since I started working online jobs, I've been using Dropbox for years. I even installed it in my blackberry. It is very useful, secured and still using it until now.Recently, Google launched the Google Drive. Like dropbox, Google Drive is a place where you can create, share, collaborate, and keep all of your stuff. You can upload and access all of your files, such as videos, photos, Google Docs, PDFs and etc.

I decided to try this one because I love google apps and it offers a capacity of 5 gb for free while dropbox offers 2gb. It also allows the user to attach photos from Drive to posts in Google+, and also let's you attach stuff from Drive directly to emails in Gmail.

Google Drive is available for:
  • PC and Mac
  • Chrome OS
  • iPhone and iPad
  • Android devices
Download Google Drive here.
