Yay, I won 2 tickets for the special movie screening of Man of Steel sponsored by Schick and NuffnangPH! Oh, I am so keyed up to watch another Superman movie, that’s tonight - 10PM at Shang Cineplex Cinema 2. Wohoo!
Update: June 15
I and hubby watched the Man of Steel last night, we are both Superman fanatics, and waited for years for another sequel, was 2006 the last?
Well, what is my impression after watching Man of Steel? I am not astounded of the movie, it lacks something. But Superman is still my beloved superhero, no one can change that.
Although I already know the origins of Superman, that Man of Steel rehashed, I love that the movie tackles the human side of Superman/Clark Kent. And even I found the fighting scenes, repetitive and dragging, it has subjected me to a gigantic and deafening action sequences that I’ve ever seen, ha-ha. I didn’t even blink and suppressed my pee!
Another thing that caught my attention was the soulful eyes of Henry Cavill! So sexy, ha-ha.
Of course we also have FREE snacks – 2 tumblers of popcorn and soft drinks, and a bag of Schick giveaway handed by NuffnangPH staff after watching the movie.
Thank you Schick and Nuffnang!

Do you eat tofu or soybean curd? I am a fan of tofu, aside from potatoes, beans and pasta that I stack in my pantry; a block of tofu is always at hand in my fridge.
I eat tofu probably twice or thrice a week; it’s my cheapest and dependable ulam ha-ha! Yes, it is the cheapest protein anyone can get. You know I am a frugal mom and on schooldays that I was always left alone, all alone to eat my lunch, next to pasta dishes that I can quickly cooked and the left over food that I can reheat; tofu is one of the easiest, quickest, cheapest and healthy viand for my lunch!
What’s in tofu?
Tofu is made from dried soybeans, it is produced by grinding, then filtered and boiled to form a milk-like sub-stance, which is compressed and left to congeal. The mass is dried up into a jellylike solid, it is cut into a palm sized cubes.
Since it is made from soybean it is high in protein and low in fat. The day I discern that this following benefits I get for eating tofu:
1. helps lower bad cholesterol
2. lessen symptoms associated with menopause because it contains isoflavone
3. lowers risk of cancer
4. makes middle-aged bones stronger
I became a tofu fan!
I have friends that don’t like tofu, they say tofu taste bland. No! I insist to them that tofu is versatile, the spongy texture of tofu acquire the taste of any ingredient it is mixed with. I have cooked my tofu in more than a few ways – stir fry with any vegetables and with different kinds of sauces like oyster sauce, teriyaki sauce, chili-garlic sauce etc.
Oh, yesterday these was my lunch, I have a fried tofu with spicy vinegar dip, paired with breaded okra. Delicious!
