On Friday (8-10-2012), one of our dogs, Batutay scratched my bedroom door at the middle of the night. I don’t know what’s up, angrily opened the door and when she saw me, there is an obvious sign of relief and the full wagging of tail shows she’s quite happy. She entered my room without my permission jumped on my bed and slept. Then, I came into conclusion that she felt cold, so I just let her sleep beside me.
When we humans are feeling cold, aside from curling on bed with blanket covering us, one of the ways to warm up ourselves is by sipping a warm soup.
Locally, a Chicken and Ginger Soup is called Tinolang Manok, this is a boiled chicken with ginger and more spices. This is one of my favorite dish since I was a kid.
