Steamed Shrimp

Among the many creatures of the sea, my favorite is the squid. I love squid adobo and calamares but when I was pregnant I loathe the taste of it. I don’t know why but even the sight of it irritates me.

What I was crazy about when I was pregnant were shrimps. I love shrimp swimming in garlic butter and you can  serve it to me everyday for all I care. I also love camias, pineapple and cheesecake during that time. And sometimes, I do wonder what would my next pregnancy cravings be should I get pregnant again. Would they be the same or different?

Since I started working on my “homebased” career, I stopped making social security contributions. I guess I was too lazy to go to their office and make voluntary payments monthly but I’m planning to start this year. I know I better start making voluntary payments if I want to claim maternity benefits and SSS benefits. For the maternity benefits, I need to pay for at least a year before I get eligible for it. Next month would be a great start.

Let me  just leave you with a tasty shrimp recipe and I’m done for today…
