Goto Monster: Not Your Ordinary Goto

We all have our own defaults when we think of comfort food. And for us Filipinos, I’m pretty much sure that one of them is congee or porridge. It would surely come up on our lists of top 10 comfort food especially when were under the weather or just want some pick-me-upper. It’s not a definite claim, but I believe a lot of people all over the world likes congee too, especially if when the Chinese influence have reached these far areas in the world.




Congee is a type of rice porridge or gruel popular in many Asian countries. When eaten as plain rice congee, it is most often served with side dishes. When additional ingredients such as meat, fish, and flavorings are added while preparing the congee, it is most often served as a meal on its own, especially for persons who are ill. Names for congee are as varied as the style of its preparation. Despite its many variations, it is usually a thick porridge of rice largely disintegrated after prolonged cooking in water.

How to Choose a Two-Way Radio for Outdoor Adventures

Going deep into the woods or taking a solo trek in the mountains offers a much needed respite to those looking to break away from everyday life. The mountains not only offer a refreshing retreat to campers, hikers, hunters, photographers and birdwatchers, they’re also relatively less crowded - the tough terrain keeps weekend picnickers away, preserving the sanctity of the place.




If you spend a lot of your leisure time in outdoor activities, you know how important it is to leave home with the right equipment. Preparation is the cornerstone of a successful outdoor experience, and planning for contingencies is a part of the deal.

Steps To Filing An Auto Insurance Claim

In an insurance policy, a claim is when you ask the company to compensate for the damages which you have sustained after an accident. This is the legal procedure you follow and ask the insurance company to reimburse you for the damages. You have paid a huge amount for the car insurance and if there is an accident, it makes sense to make a claim. Here are the five steps to file your insurance claim.




1. Report to the police
First and foremost, you need to have an officer write down the details of the accident in a police report. You might panic after an accident but it is best to allow the police to assess a situation so that in the future, if the third party turns difficult, you will have the police to ensure that you are safe. The police can also help in case of injuries or damage to the vehicle. A police report will help you with the claim.

How to Brew Coffee Like a Pro

A good cup of coffee can make even the earliest of mornings and longest of days a little more bearable. However, if you’re tired of wasting money on expensive house blends from your local coffee bar, it’s time to learn a few tricks that will bring tasty, strong and affordable coffee right to your home. Here are the secrets to brewing coffee like a pro. 


Keep your equipment clean 
Besides having good brewing equipment like a dripper, grinder and kettle, you also need to keep it clean. This is a step that many people skip, which results in less than perfect taste. Clean the filter of your machine and your bean containers regularly. This easy step will prevent flavor overlapping and remove oily buildup. It’s a great way to get the pure and clear coffee taste you seek and keep your equipment in top shape for many years.

Things You Should Keep In Mind While Traveling

Who doesn’t love to travel? Exploring places, cultures, and cuisines which are not ours is everybody’s wish. Traveling can open your eyes to multiple ways of life. Recently I have been to Canada and here’s what I’ve learned to make traveling a richer experience. Here’s a list of things that you should keep in mind:




Planning May Not Help: Planning your trip and itineraries is really good and very helpful, but it doesn’t go always as planned. Be open to unplanned turns and twists that you may encounter while traveling. Maybe you missed your train, maybe you exhaust your budget before your trip ends. Don’t let these obstacles ruin it for you. There are always ways to get around. Choose a different mode of commute. You can even hitch hike if you want to. Be open to opportunities that come your way.

Perfect Vacation Calls for a Perfect Plan

That wonderful time of the year has finally arrived and you can’t wait to reach the destination where you will spend your vacation. If you are traveling with your partner and a kid or two, it’s crucial to get organized so that every minute of your vacation would be enjoyable.




Make a list of essentials
People tend to bring way too many things in their suitcases and end up using only a few of them. The problem is that you won’t have enough space left for some new clothes, shoes, souvenirs, sweets or drinks. That’s why you should make a list of essentials for every member of your family. In order to include your kids in the organization process, give them little bags and tell them to pack the most important stuff they need. That’s how you will avoid the danger of forgetting the teddy bear without which your child won’t fall asleep easily. Once you write down the essential stuff, you will pack lightly in no time!

Most Common Hair Problems for Women

Happiness comes from inside. If you are a healthy and a positive person from your heart and mind, your gorgeousness will radiate from within and bring out the glow of your inner beauty on your face. All of this is very much true. But we cannot deny the fact that for women, her outer beauty effects how she really feels inside. Women are much more conscious about their appearance as compared to men. It is not just about the make-up, branded dress, perfumes, and heels; her real beauty lies in how she maintains her skin, her hair, her nails, her health, and her hygiene.




Hair is the most essential part of women’s lives. When a woman enters a room, it is one of the first things to be noticed. Whether they are curls, straight or wavy, they need to be healthy, shiny and lustrous. Hair defines the kind of mood she is in. There is so much a woman can do with her hair. With one look at her hair, you can make out the kind of day she has planned for herself: a messy bun for her workout, a cute ponytail for a coffee date, a formal bun for a meeting, and a flaunting wave for the weekend.
