    Share ko lang Ms. Connie about this recent article fwd to me. With the growing number of veggies & fruits being imported, their use of formalin is really scary. I’d go for local grown veggies. :-) This is the article:

    Coco Water Prolongs Freshness of Vegetables

    Use coconut water instead of formalin (formaldehyde) in prolonging the freshness of vegetables.

    The use of coconut water is simpler, safer, and more economical use than using formalin, which may scare vegetable buyers.

    In a demonstration by researchers at the College of Agriculture, University of the Philippines Los Ba�os (CA-UPLB), stringbeans dipped in fresh coconut water for at least two minutes stayed fresh and marketable even up to four days after harvest. The shriveling or drying of the beans was also reduced.

    The CA-UPLB researchers said that the coconut water contains cytokinins or hormones responsible for retaining the green color (chlorophyll) of stringbean pods. (BPG)

    I love the chop suey dish. I missed eating it.
    But I will love it much if my girlfriend will cook it for me. So, I hope I will have a girlfriend who knows how to serve this perfectly for my taste.

    Hi ms. connie,

    thank yo for sharing this. I was thinking of what to cook for lunch and came across your chop suey. I followed it, though i don’t have sesame oil, it turned out good anyway… but i’ll go to grocery to find for sesame oil next time. I also had no pcs of pork to fry in our fridge…. so i used giniling instead… hehehe!!! my 4 year old loves it with all the vegetables combined :) Thank you! More power to your cooking and website… :)
