Red Ribbon sells their ensaymada and mamon that are expiring in 2 days still at regular price


My daughter bought these ensaymada and mamon from Red Ribbon on June 30, 2018, 2 days before they expire on July 2, 2018. There seems to be no problem di ba? Pero doon sa mga sanay mamili ng pagkain lalo na ng highly perishable food, ang mga pagkain na mag eexpire na kinabukasan or day after tomorrow ay ibinebenta na ng half the price or kalahati na lang ng presyo nila. 

In Rustan's two weeks pa lang bago mag-expire ang kanilang food items especially yong mga meat products, they sell those stuff "Buy 1 take 1."

In SM, they sell their food products at half the price one day before the expiry date.

Pero itong nabili ng daughter ko, full price pa rin nya nabili ito. 
Dahil akala ng daughter ko ay matagal pa ang expiry date, bumili sya ng tig-isang pack each with 10 ensaymada and 10 mamon in every pack. Kaya nong July 2, 2018, nong kinakain ko na yong ensayamada, sabi ko sa kanya, bakit parang malapit na itong mag expire. True enough pagtingin ko sa balot boom!! malapit na ngang mapanes. Galing nyo din Red Ribbon.

Delimondo ranch style corned beef



Delimondo Ranch Style Corned beef
I've finally seen this brand of corned beef on my favorite supermarket's shelves. I discovered Delimondo through my sister who said she would like to bring Delimondo corned beef when they go home to Canada.

This is what I bring home every time I go to Hongkong - Peking Duck




This is how a typical restaurant that sells Peking duck looks like. Roasted ducks are displayed hanging by a display window for customers to see. They are very irresistible. The Chinese people love to eat Peking duck. And, some Filipinos like me and members of my family love to eat Peking Duck, too. We like the roast duck dipped in plum sauce.




 This one whole Peking duck does not look as fresh as when I bought it at the restaurant because I bought it the day before our departure. When I opened it at home, this was how it looked like - dry and wrinkled because it stayed overnight in the freezer. However, it still tasted great after I placed it in the microwave oven. 



This is what I ordered at the restaurant where we ate in Mongkok and where I ordered one whole duck to be brought home. The lady packed the duck very well when she learned that I will bring it in the airplane going home. I bought the one whole duck for $145 Hongkong dollars.

The restaurant located at the heart of Mongkok was small but it was clean and not noisy. The lady owner was courteous and very pleasant to us. I want to go back to that restaurant again when I go back to Hongkong in the near future.
