Wet Market Sunday: The Broken Rice

OMG, may chika ako with my online job hunting goal, but that would be in my next post. I'll get this Wet Market Sunday post over with first.

  • BANANA and VEGGIES: Php 120
- Banana : Php 50 (Php 45 per kilo)
- Sayote: Php 15 each
- Cucumber
- Onion: Php 11 (100g)
- Tomato: Php 6 (100g)
- Eggplant
- Squash: Php 10
- Sili: Php 5 per pack

  • BANGUS: Php 50 (Php 100 per kilo)

  • EGGS: Php 15 (Php 5 each)

  • Rice: Php 99 (Php 33 per kilo)
I found the exact kilos of rice we, meaning Stark, Pepper and I, consume in a week. And that's 3 kilos. I don't eat rice that much, I make it to a point to only eat 1 1/2 cups of rice a day ( that's lunch and for me, that's a heavy meal already.) If you noticed, I have been buying corn grits for Stark and Pepper a while back but switched to rice instead para I can buy it in one go. (I usually mix half a cup of cooked rice, a cup of dog food, sawdust and veggies for Stark and Pepper's meal.)
Ganador is one of the premium rice in the market right now. It's about Php 50 to Php 55 per kilo and I don't buy that , I go for Broken Rice of Ganador (Php 33 per kilo.) According to Google,  Broken rice is a grade of rice consisting of grains broken in the milling process. Well, mine is still Ganador but it's broken into pieces because of the milling process AND it's cheap... way cheaper, right? I kind of like the broken rice more than NFA (they are kind of the same price, but I saw Php 27 per kilo NFA rice.) By the way, I am aware of the rice controversy, you know, that plastic rice. I know how to spot those. I only buy rice from my trusted "suki".

One thing I love about broken rice is that it's kind of wet-ish when it is already cooked. For some reason, I prefer wet-ish rice more than the firm one.

  • SAWDUST for Stark and Pepper: Php 60 (Php 30 per kilo)
  • GROUND MEAT: Php 37.49 (Php 133 per kilo)
  • BONES for Stark and Pepper: Php 54 (Php 51 per kilo- On sale) I still have bones from last week but decided to buy more coz it was still on sale. They rarely go on sale so might as well stock up.

Sorry if you have to tilt your head:


  • Cooking oil (1/4): Php 21.50
  • Camel Sukang Puti: Php 4.30 I'll buy big one if I happen to be in SNR
  • 3x16 Plastic for Ice (for carpenters): Php 18.50
  • Happy Sanitary Pads: Php 13.15 Again, I can't be hanging my diy reusable sanitary pads out in the open because of the house construction. It resumed a week ago,as I have mentioned in my previous post.

  • Yakult Light Culture: Php 50 They ran out of the regular ones. I love that more than this one.
  • Baker's Best Bread: Php 22.25
  • Energen Cereal: Php 29
  • Kopiko Cafe Blanca: Php 56
  • Pechay: Php 6.30 Bought this at La Nueva because it was on sale ( Php 20 per kilo.) Regular price in my suki: Php 45 per kilo
  • Swan Sardines: Php 12.40 When I saw the misua noodles, I was like, "Damn, I need to cook this before it goes bad." I usually put sayote and sili with sardines in my misua soup. I find that combo yummy.

TOTAL: Php 668.89


  1. Love the haul ate! I will be waiting for online job I'm finding one also haha help me hahahah

  2. Mas gusto ko rin yung Yakult na original kesa sa light version an bagong labas nila. I use Yakult in my smoothie, yummy. Hehe. :)
