Adobo sa Dilaw+ Steamed Okra

A couple of days ago Metro Manila was placed on a Community Quarantine to contain the spread of corona virus and the result was mass gathering of people around check points. I think they didn’t expect that a lot of people who lived in and out of the metro would still going to work to and from even though there is a threat to get the illness. So last night, an Enhanced Community Quarantine was imposed…

So what does an Enhanced Community Quarantine for Luzon means?

  1. By virtue of an Executive Order of the Office of the President we will have a Luzon-wide community quarantine.
  2. We will have a curfew of 8pm to 5am for non-essential personnel on the streets. Exempted are health care workers, peace and order officers, workers from the night shift of the Processing zones with valid ID’s, and LGU officers.
  3. Malls are ordered closed for the duration of the executive order.
  4. Restaurants can only accept take-home and delivery services. Dine in is strictly prohibited.
  5. Banks, groceries, supermarkets, pharmacies, pawn shops, hardwares, and wet markets will remain open.
  6. Fiestas, karakols, parades, and other related public assemblies are cancelled.
  7. Common religious congregations are strongly discouraged.
  8. Gaming parlours, computer gaming shops, wellness Centers, cockpits arenas, will be closed.
  9. Students on OJT are no longer required to report.
  10. Needless loitering in the streets at any time of the day will be denied.
  11. Public playgrounds, basketball courts, beaches, and public parks will be closed.
  12. Public utility offices, Bayad centers, and related financial services will remain open.
  13. ‘Tianges’, open dry good markets, side walk vending, will be closed.
  14. This will become effective March 17, at 12:01 am.

It’s really getting scarier by the day because a lot of people are getting infected.

As a mom, what I can do to help is to keep my family safe at home and give them healthy, delicious food that boosts the immune system. I am aiming for those that are easy to cook with less ingredients, of course. If at all possible, I also want to serve vegetables every meal.

Today, I prepared ADOBO SA DILAW. It’s a version of Adobo that uses turmeric or luyang dilaw to flavor it instead of soy sauce. You can also use turmeric powder. It’s so easy to cook. I paired it with  Steamed Okra to make it healthier.


I really wish we all have the capability to stay at home and be safe…not worrying about buying food nor paying bills. I salute all those companies and employers who chose to help their employee by making them work at home, giving them an advance loan/salaries/13th month pay, or giving premium salaries for those who go to work despite this difficulty.

This too shall pass“, mommies. Kapit lang tayo. Let’s stay at home, be healthy. Magtulungan tayo. We’ll all make it through.
