2.  Filipino Breakfast Food Items

I buy these very common Filipino breakfast food grocery items such as the following:

  • Lucky Me Instant Noodle Soup - I usually grab a box of instant noodle soup containing 12 packages with different flavors and instant pancit canton packages.  Store and place these in the pantry for easy breakfast and for emergency backup in case of food shortages.
  • Century Light Tuna - I stock up the pantry with a lot of Century Tuna that comes in different Pinoy flavors.  These are perfect with steamed white rice and comes in handy when you are wanting to have a quick lunch.
  • Spam Luncheon Meat -  I buy a box of these canned goods as it is so easy to cook and prepare for breakfast in the morning.  I usually serve spamsilog for agahan and the kids love it.

8.  Filipino Condiments

I also buy these Filipino condiments that are very popular in the Philippines.  I use these ingredients for making Pinoy recipes such as the following:

  • Jufran Banana Sauce - This is a great condiment and is used as a sawsawan or sauce for fried food or prinitong pagkain like hotdogs, longganisa, tocino, fish like bangus, tilapia, or galunggong, and street food items like fishballs, kikiam, etc.
  • Lady's Choice Sandwich Spread - This is mayonnaise with tiny pits of pickled relish.  It is great on sandwich or tinapay that I usually prepare as snack or baon for my kids.

9.  Filipino Beauty Products

Most Filipino stores also have a separate aisle where they put Filipino Beauty products such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotions, moisturizers, and more. I got this Sebo de Macho skin moisturizer that I usually use for minimizing the appearance of scar marks from insect bites, pimples, bruises, minor cuts and burns.

10.  Filipino Whitening Products

I also bought this Kojie san Skin Brightening and Whitening Soap that is used in whitening and lightening dark underarms, dark elbows, and dark knees.  It is a kojic acid soap that has a nice gentle fragrance and orange in color.  It has the same whitening and moisturizing effects as a papaya soap.

Every time I take a bath, I would gently rub this soap on wet skin and then I use a loofah to lather and scrub dead skin cells off the dark spots on my body.
