Chow Mein, the classic stir-fried egg noodles, is definitely one of the most popular Chinese dishes in and outside China. This chicken Chow Mein recipe is actually inspired from Marc of No Recipes. I changed some of the ingredients like adding hoisin sauce and omitting the potato starch and Shaoxing wine. The truth is I do not have both so I thought I would improvise. It turned out really well actually, but that is not surprising since I…Read more→

How to get a Formal Obligation (Verpflichtungserkärung) for Schengen Visa Application

As I mentioned in a previous post about the requirements and procedures for applying for a Schengen Visa, we opted to get a formal obligation for my parents' visit this coming July. This document is only needed if the visitor's travel will be sponsored or paid for by a host in Germany. Applicable for the purpose of business, visiting family/friends and participation in a Language course.

It is normally eaten with rice, of course, and I usually make a dip from fish sauce with chili flakes. It is perfect for the rainy days but is usually eaten all year round and even in the heat of the summer. It may…Read more→
Schengen Visa Application – DIY (German Embassy, Philippines)

Schengen Visa Application – DIY (German Embassy, Philippines)

I think I have mentioned before, that while I was growing up, I suffered from severe motion sickness. As a child, I used to fear even a short jeepney/car ride as just the mere smell of gasoline would make my stomach turn. So at this time, my greatest dream was to travel to various parts of the Philippines and maybe the world. Who would have guessed that I would end up miles away from home, definitely not the car-sick little girl me back then. Now that I am away from home and family, one…Read more→
