8 Stitch Lil Sew Portable Sewing Machine

I recently purchased this very cute 8 Stitch Lil Sew Portable Sewing Machine though Lazada.  I saw this on sale and I took advantage of the huge discount and the good reviews.  I long wanted to have a sewing machine because one of my frustrations is to be able to sew even simple projects for our home.  You know, simple stuff like pillow cases, hanging organizers, ribbons and other teeny weeny stuff for the kitchen. :)

This item was delivered very fast, around 2 to 3 days after I've placed my order online.  However, I need to request for a replacement since the item did not in complete package.  The foot pedal was not included in the box.  I've tested the machine though and it works perfectly fine.  In fact, I am already very excited to try sewing my shih-tzu's shirts but I have to patiently wait for the replacement unit. Alas after almost 2 weeks of waiting, I've finally received the replacement unit, now in complete package.  I've tried using it on the same day and wow in less than an hour, I was able to sew 2 cute shirts for my baby shih-tzu.  The machine works fine and I think it would be good for my other craft projects. I'm really really excited to do more things with this portable sewing machine and I would be blogging about my finished products here, of course.  Hope my machine would last long. :)

Till my next project!

My Favorite Beef Broccoli

I love broccoli and every time I go to SM Supermarket, I never fail to buy a head of broccoli.  I used to cook this with beef.  Aside from the fact that this is a super healthy food, the dish is so easy to prepare and budget friendly as well.  A plate of Beef Broccoli normally costs me a little over a hundred pesos and it would be good for two persons already.  My secret to this delicious dish is the oyster sauce and fried garlic.  Both really add a great flavor to my dish so it's really super yummy.

My daughter who never eat vegetables would always try this dish, so I make it a point to cook this once in a while to have her eat veggies. 

Ingredients are so simple:

about 300 grams of beef strips
1 head of Broccoli
1 clove of garlic
1 medium sized red onion
two table spoons of soy sauce
1/4 cup oyster sauce
1 tbsp of sugar
onion leeks (optional)


1.) Heat oil on pan, then fry the beef strips on medium heat.
2.) Saute garlic and onion. Set aside some fried garlic for toppings 
3.) Add two tablespoons of soy sauce and mix well.
4.) Add the sliced Broccoli, then add the sugar and oyster sauce.
5.) Cook over low heat and finally top with onion leeks and fried garlic.
6.) Serve with hot rice.
Bon Appetit!
