  1. https://www.philstar.com/headlines/2020/03/31/2004508/duterte-unveils-p200-billion-aid-low-income-families-affected-quarantine When I read this just now, I happily told my wife.... and told her to expect it on the radio and TV. I was surprised by her skeptical and pessimistic response.... as she cited what happened after Yolanda and Ursula. I really hope the people who need it, get it.
  2. Hi all... Just the simplest of questions... Can anyone tell me if there is anywhere in Davao where I can buy real sour cream - you know, the thick kind like in USA, Australia, etc. All I ever seem to find is the ubiquitous "Nestle" sour cream which tastes okay, but is runny and also has awful containers with lids that fall apart after a while in the refrigerator. I know how to make sour cream from yogurt, but would just like to find if it is available at any stores here. Sometimes one of these containers seems to have the thickened style but most are the watery consistency. Also, maybe only 50% of the time I go to SM or Gaisano or Robertsons - even on the same day - do I even find this Nestle product available... Frequently "sorry, out of stock," anyway... Okay....actually two questions now that I am here. How about Indian curry spices? Any store recommendations? Again, the four major stores here don't carry much selection, just "curry powder" and a few of the specific spices...
  3. One does wonder about the inspiration as to the name
  4. Finally went to Landers in Cebu, Past 3 years have always gone to S&R for most of my USA foods. Well Landers is very similar. The membership(online) is at half price at P400. With that can get free haircuts, fuel discounts of P1-P1.5, which is something S&R does not have. Very clean facility, and the staff was very helpful! Even going on a Thursday, there were not many people around so checkout was very quick with no waiting in lines. The product selection was varied such as S&R, even some of the products were the same. Landers also carries the Kirtland brand which is the Costco, S%R brands. The meat selections were better than S&R currently carries. We prefer to buy beef in blocks and take home to cut and freeze in zip locks. The food court was very busy. Maybe cuz we were there around lunch time. Checking the food court items were very similar to S&R with a few differences in salads and such. Although they both have products different from one another. I think from now on, I will go to Landers first, and what I don't find there, go to S&R to finish what I couldn't find. I haven't compared yet price differences, I'll do that next month for like items. So for my vote, Landers gets a 4 out 5, S&R about 3 out 5. Will be adding more info next month!
  5. While I was reading Jollygoodfellow's post on finding good ham, it got me to thinking about all the foods/food products that I used to take for granted when living in the States. I hadn't really thought about it too much. I had a few small restaurants back in the day so cooking has always come easy for me. Still, I make a lot of things here simply because I can't find sources here or the products that are here are really expensive. So... my question is. What do you now make yourself that you never would have dreamed of making when you were in your home country? Me, I make all kinds of stuff.. and have benefited greatly from doing so. The food is healthier and the family enjoys it more. Here's a list of things I can think of right off the top of my head: Ham, Sausage, BBQ sauce, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, butter, tartar sauce, sour cream, mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, spice rubs, pancake syrup, pasta, bread and other stuff I can't think of right now. I would love to make my own cheese and have tried a few times. Never turned out so good, though. So, what do you make? I am curious to know. Thanks, Jeff
  6. Stumbled across this on fb link.............Not sure about the prices as seem a tad high! Nice to get occasional foodstuff from home for any Brits http://www.ourawesomeplanet.com/awesome/2015/07/tesco-in-manila-at-sm-supermarkets.html
