Sarangani Bay Prime Bangus Product Review: Freshest Bounty from the Sea

Sarangani Bay Prime Bangus

I have always worked as a freelancer because it was a personal decision on my part to be with my family and to manage the family household closely. By that I mean, I take care of Kyle, my nephew whom I had raised as my own child personally. I personally plan, market and choose the food that I cook for the rest of the week. Of course, I get a little help from my mom, but modesty aside, I do better than her at the kitchen.

Cooking for me is like my way of expressing my love for my family. I’m not saying I’m such a good cook because there have been many instances where I end up cooking a hit or a miss. What I’m proud however is that at least I can whip up a nice dish once in a while. I am happy when I make a meal worth remembering as well as when I am able to cook up something delicious and healthy for my family.

Kyle is already in his teens (he’s turning 17) while my mom is already a senior citizen who happens to have some heart issues so I make sure they eat well. I’m very partial in serving them fish to provide them with Omega 3—which was proven to help prevent certain heart diseases.
