Ilocos Poqui-Poqui Recipe

Ilocos Poqui-Poqui Recipe
Several years back, I and my friends had a tour around the Ilocos region. We visited some known old churches, famous landmarks and their finest beaches. And of course we also tried renowned Ilocano dishes like, vigan longanisa, pinakbet, kilawin, bagnet and many more. Most food menu of restaurants in Ilocos has Poqui-Poqui, which is an eggplant dish and we were afraid to try them because it doesn’t really look appetizing and it doesn’t have a detailed description.

Salad as Part of the Diet

Salad as Part of the Diet
During my last checkup, my doctor told me that I need to lose weight if I wanted to avoid serious health problems.
