Friday Briefing

Good morning kabayan,

Mag-ingat, there is a winter storm warning for the Tri-state from Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.

Be prepared, whether you’re going out or staying in. Monday is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr day, a holiday so it’s going to be a long weekend for some.

For real time weather information visit the National Weather Service.

Moving along, thank goodness it’s Friday and here’s what you need to know.

This cold spell is making us crave for some soup, and we found this Beef Nilaga recipe from Asian in America Food Blog by Ms Betty Ann Besa-Quirino, thanks for making it available and simple to follow. We’re heading out to the supermarket to get the ingredients. Check it out and cook it too. Masarap ito.

Thanks for reading. Share this, like us on social media and continue to send us good vibes, we appreciate it.

Stay warm, be safe.

That’s it for this edition of our newsletter.
