100 Pesos Budget – Try Misua and Patola Soup
It’s raining cats and dogs in the Philippines right now because of the Typoon named Maring. It started last Saturday afternoon and until now (Monday August 19) it is still raining hard. This is the reason why some areas are flooded already.
Anyway, during this kind of weather it is better to stay at home and just eat. Yes, we Filipinos love to eat hahaha.
If you have a tight budget, this easy to do recipe is a must try. It only cost around P100 or less and is already good for 3-4 persons (depending on their appetites). This is perfect for this cold and rainy day.
