Skinless Chicken Afritada with Boiled Eggs

Afritada is one of the common viands Filipinos cook for lunch or dinner. It has variations, it  can be cooked with pork, beef, fish or even just vegetables. I've seen my Mama served this when I was a kid but I never learned from her. Maybe because I was mostly not in the kitchen while she was cooking.

When cooking chicken, I always make sure it is skinless for a healthier meal for my family. I like adding boiled eggs because my kids and I like eggs a lot! I even bring the eggs at the gym for my snack.

The frying part of the potatoes and carrots I learned from Janet Sison. She cooks one mean Afritada and more!

The best part, which I call Afritada Rice, is one of my practical and tipid tips. Sayang naman kasi ang natirang sauce, madami pa yun e.

Hair and Make Up by Jayson Principe

I first met Jayson Principe last July 2019 after Mrs. PTA Coronation. He was the choreographer of my co-candidate Suzette, where Suzette won as Best in Talent. I found out later on when Jayson added me in Facebook that it was him who also did Suzette's make-up at the coronation night.

When Julia's make-up artist was not able to make it for Mr. and Ms. MandSci 2020 Passing of Crown, I immediately messaged Jayson. It helps that Jayson and I live in the same city because in no time Jayson came to the rescue.

If you live within Mandaluyong, Pasig, San Juan and nearby Manila (Sta. Ana and Sta. Mesa, and will be needing a make up artist, you might want to try Hair and Make Up by Jayson Principe. You may contact him at 0929-8123437.
