Vlog: Batangas Lomi and More - Our Amazing Filipino Foods Encounters

Tayo mag-lomi!!! Sino gang sasama?

This is the typical line you will hear from a Batangueno or local of the Batangas province. Why? Because in this place is where lomi is born and for that reason alone, lomi is the food almost everybody wants. Don't believe it? Well, you better be.




In this vlog, my my wife and I go places just to get a taste of this lomi. Specifically, we ordered lomi from several restaurants in Batangas and Cavite. We tasted it, commented on it, and there you go, a vlog that speaks the truth about Batangas lomi or simply "lomi".



Yes, lomi has undergone innovations over the past years. Lomi is now more decorative, with toppings almost filling half of the bowl. The tasty lomi is a must-try for you, for everyone who wants something different, something special.

And of course, the authentic "Mga Pagkaing Pinoy. These foods will always be there, in every resto or canteen you will dine it. We always love to order kaldereta, pancit, lechon, dinuguan and sisig. These menus are always a big part of the Filipino life.

Lomi will always be there. I can in fact cook a lomi for you; for when I was a kid, we used to have this Lomi House -  a canteen or karinderya as we say it here in the Philippines. And there is a legit lomi recipe, to be honest, and that's the one with pork liver. So look for it whenever you want to order one.

Want lomi? So there you have it.

"Business as Usual" as the Filipinos Define It (Vulcanizing Shop, Sari-Sari Store, Bakery) – Part 1

I asked the shop owner about these old unused tires on what are they doing with it. The Vulcanizing shop owners says, “Oh, someone will pick up those tires and pay us 5 or 10 pesos each. Sometimes they just take it for free”. Vulcanizing Shop - A Classic Example of Filipino Business You’ve most probably seen and been into a local, typical vulcanizing shop like this one in the photo. The business concept is very simple. Here’s a customer with his flat or deflated tire and the vulcanizing boy will repair it using a rubber compound patch, a heating tool, and an air pump. If it’s a regular car or van tire, repairing one may only take 10 minutes the cost of which is around 30 to 60 pesos. If it’s a tire from a truck or bus, it could be around 30 minutes and the repair would cost the vehicle owner around 100 to 150 pesos. Here’s the thing. A shop like this one could potentially earn a revenue of 1000 up to 2000 per day just by repairing a flat tire. Why? Well, with thousands of

Beautiful Life in the Philippines in These Times of Pandemic

Life is beautiful if you will find ways to make it beautiful... This is what I learned from life experiences here in the planet. As the line from the poem Invictus states: I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul. We are responsible for our happiness, at least in a world where everyone has freedom. Now, as to what happiness would mean to you, it something you must know. But defining happiness should not be complicated. Perhaps, this blog post can explain...  Cows Freely Eating Grasses in a Green Field A Lady Witnessing the Rising of the Sun Morning Sun as it Climbs Up to Start the Day We all experienced the horrible impact of pandemic over the past two years, and yet we still feel the difficulties and challenges up to this very moment coping up with the so-called "new normal".

Introducing "JN FarmGarden" of Organic Plants and Natural Lifestyle in Batangas

It is great to live our lives in the way we want it, that's true. However, more often that not, it doesn't really happen based on our plans, even from our brilliant ideas. Life as I learned it, works differently in this world. There are factors that makes life happier, sad and sometimes beyond our expectations. But why don't we look at it in a more positive and engaging way, despite the odds out there. I mean, if something makes you happy, why don't we focus on it rather than on the ones the stops you from doing so. Let me share my experiences as an example. In 2019, everything is just a dream. Like on this first photo, this is just the simple dream - a simple house in the bukid. The First Papaya Then about 4 years later, this red ripe papaya was the first of its kind to be harvested in our mini farm here in Taysan, Batangas. A lot of things, good and bad, happen in between. And this cute little dog we named "Oki" or "Okee" or "Owky" sudden
