Contrary to Italian Spaghetti, Filipino Spaghetti is sweet. Another obvious difference is that it has hotdogs. People from around the world recognize the Philippines’ version of spaghetti through one of the famous fast food chains in the country – Jollibee. Here’s a homemade recipe we found from @panlasangpinoy. Enjoy!
2 lbs Spaghetti pasta
3 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
½ cup tomato paste
1 lb. minced ham
1½ lbs ground pork
6 to 8 pieces red hotdogs, sliced diagonally
½ cup granulated white sugar
1 medium yellow onion, minced
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 cups beef broth
1 cup shredded Velveeta cheese
2 tablespoons cooking oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Cook the spaghetti pasta according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a cooking pot.
3. Saute the garlic and onion.
4. Add the ham. Cook for 3 minutes.
5. Put-in the ground pork. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
6. Pour-in the tomato sauce and beef broth. Stir and let boil. Simmer for 60 minutes.
7. Add the hotdogs and tomato paste. Stir and cook for 10 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
8. Put-in the sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir until the ingredients are well incorporated.
9. Arrange the spaghetti pasta in an individual plate. Pour the meat sauce over the pasta and top with cheese.
10. Serve. Share and enjoy!

Is there a million things you would like to do? I feel like that, because I'm so passionated about life and all the beautiful things I would love to do or try out. There are many benefits to a minimalistic lifestyle....so even though days can get busy especially when you have kids...I have had time to read books, time to exercise more regularly, travelling and get back to a more creative mode again. When you do the things your actually love then automatically you grow and you become a better version of yourself, well most of the time anyways 😉 I hope simplifying will benefit you so you can enjoy more of the things you love. With smile and simplicity, Kristina x

Minimizing?? In case you've been wondering what I've been up to today.
I have planned an 8 week minimizing our tiny apartment.
I did the bathroom last week and this week and next I am tackling our bedroom--so first thing I tackled was my closet (yes this closet and 3 small drawers are now all the clothes I officially own, crazy right?!! But I am effing in LOVE with this minimalist look 😍😍😍) Can you say #minimalistwin ?!? This plan so far is going GREAT and I am TOTALLY in my element when it comes to getting rid of stuff and downsizing--seriously though it's like just as exciting as Christmas time for me is ❄️🎄🎁 Probably think I am weird, right?
Well, my belief is that normal doesn't make the world go round--being WEIRD TOTALLY does 😜🙃😂 WHO are my peeps who love to get rid of stuff?? Come on, I know you're out there--I can't be the only one 🙋🏻
It's London, it's super summer hot at 34 degrees! So today we are enjoying the cold water in our bathtub, the cold white wine in our fridge and sweet red pieces of water melon in our garden. What do you enjoy when it is amazingly summer hot? 🥂
Trying to make the mundane marvelous is one of my favorite pastimes.
Trashcans, diaper pail, toilet brush; items that are always in plain sight, yet typically hold a relegated position, often receive an ample amount of delicate effort at our place.
Now, a true zero waster does not have a trash can to begin with. As a half-ass one, I do. Although a secondhand, thrifted one.
Usually "beautiful" trashcans, or ones that are marketed as such, cost an arm and leg. I ain't got that kind of money. I've been using a flower pot in the bathroom, and a stock pot in the kitchen (under $5) for years. Stock pot makes a great kitchen trash can. It doesn't look like a trash can, it has a good size, it's made of metal, has a cover, and lends a vintage vibe, which I like, in small dose.
Because of Neer, mine has been sitting on the counter for the last couple of months. Lately, it has been elevated on a cake stand (also #secondhand , #thrifted ) for more pretty points. Ha! #zerowaste#zerodechet#minimalisthome#buyfewerbuybetter#BuyItOnce#RetroChic#slowhome#slowliving#noplastic
"Mommy. I'm so glad we have winny boy. I forgot what it was like before he was brought to us by that worker. Having him here makes me happy." // “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:2-4 #howihome
Did you know that India spoke a language more than Hindi? According to The Times of India, only 59% of Indians spoke Hindi. Others spoke Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil and Urdu. There’s so much to love about India and its culture, but more than that, we love how diverse their food choices are. #CaziHome
In even the most adventurous of wanderers, there exists a homebody: a piece of you that wants to feel comfortable in a place that reflects you and the people and things and moments you love. It's the piece of you that lingers in bed for a few minutes after the alarm goes off, that gets satisfaction from a well-polished toilet, that just wants a bowl of cereal at 10:30pm. It's the bit that holds loved ones close even though you don't have a bra on yet and the bit that needs a place to collapse after a grueling day. The clever businessperson, the world traveler, the busy socialite, the outdoor enthusiast--all the different you's that keep you going--thrive thanks to the homebody that keeps you grounded. Long live the homebody.

We had some relatives over this weekend and got these bouquets. Lovely gesture, but tall mixed bouquets are not my cup of tea... Stay tuned for some deconstruction. And yes, it's ok to do that, and that applies to all kinds of gifts - make them work for you and your home. Chances are you'll enjoy them much more, but if not - pass them on to someone else. That's ok too. It's the gesture from the giver that counts.
