Tips and Recipes to Elevate Your Home Cooking with Ninong Ry

 Recreate each recipe at home with the help of GLife’s curated brands and merchants 

Nothing beats the comfort of having a home-cooked meal, and if there’s someone who knows a thing or two about preparing delectable dishes for the family, it’s Ninong Ry. He brings his special recipes to life with the help of GLife, sourcing all the best ingredients and kitchen gadgets to ensure his dishes are always outstanding. 


A feature on the GCash app, GLife brings together a curated line-up of merchants and services into one dashboard to allow users to shop for what they need effortlessly in just a few quick taps. 


Whether he’s looking for the freshest vegetables and meats or he’s on the hunt for new equipment to level up his kitchen, Ninong Ry finds it all on GLife. Take note of these tips from everyone’s favourite ninong, and get ready to elevate your home cooking! 


Tip 1: Great food needs great cookware, and when you plan to make steak at home, you need a sturdy cast iron pan.


A nice, tender steak doesn’t require a trip to a fine dining restaurant; all you need is a  cast iron skillet at home to cook a perfectly delicious and juicy steak. A cast iron pan evenly distributes and retains heat, so when you cook steak, the entire surface takes on a beautifully caramelised sear. 


“Lahat ng gusto mong i-sear, masesear mo ng maayos dito kumpara sa ibang material,” explains Ninong Ry. “Mas mataas ang searing, mas masarap ang luto, mas mag eenjoy ang pamilya.” 


A nice cast iron pan may be purchased for PHP 630.00 from Rampage City on GLife. Through this tried and tested technique using a cast iron pan, you can begin having epic steak nights at home! 



Tip 2: Make the smart choice with your sandwiches by grilling them. You can even get creative and grill with a waffle iron! 


“Madalas ginagamit ko ang waffle iron ko pag sawa na akong mag pancake. Same mixture, babawasan lang ng liquid, pwedeng pwede nang maging waffle. Ginagawa ko din minsan na sandwich bread yung mga waffle na gawa ko para maiba naman,” shares Ninong Ry. 


With a waffle iron, the outside of your sandwich becomes crispy, but the centre remains soft and gooey, especially when you add lots of cheese! Ninong Ry recommends the Sonifer SF-6043, a portable waffle iron that costs only PHP 674.00 on GLife.



Tip 3: Need help in picking the right kind of beef for different dishes? Get the finest Sirloin or Salpicao cuts + homemade steak sauce from Chingolo Deli. 


Chingolo Deli is Ninong Ry's go-to deli for meats since they're sourced from grass-fed herds. Their meats are hormone and antibiotic free, so they’re not only delicious, but also healthier for you and your family.


The Bolzico meat at Chingolo Deli is a 100% Argentinian certified grass-fed Angus beef, but they also have a large selection of meats from which you can prepare a superb sirloin dish or beef salpicao dinner. They also sell homemade steak sauce to go with their prime steak cuts. The best part? They’re all available on your GCash app thanks to GLife! 




Tip 4: Make the smart choice for more savings when shopping and choose PureGo for the freshest and most affordable grocery finds. 


With thousands of products from hundreds of recognized and trustworthy brands, PureGo makes online grocery shopping simple. “PureGo is incredibly convenient,” Ninong Ry promises. "Kumpleto sila sa grocery goods, kaya di na naming kailangang lumabas, and sure na sariwa ang mga karne at gulay nila, kaya tiwala ako na maganda.”


You can access PureGo on GLife via the GCash app, and select your desired groceries. Payments may be made through a variety of methods, including GCash, and your products will be delivered to your home the same day, allowing you to enjoy your fresh buy and prepare wonderful meals without the trouble of grocery shopping!


With these tips, you can now excitedly level up your home cooking game. Using ingredients from PureGo and using your new cast iron pan and waffle iron from GLife, here are two recipes from Ninong Ry that you can try out!

Moms in Tech: How these Mothers at Shopee Unlocked Success in a Fast-Paced Industry

MANILA, MAY 6, 2022 - With the rapid growth of e-commerce, more women are exploring the tech industry and finding success online. Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, continues to provide members of its platform with the support needed to thrive in tech. In time for Mother’s Day, three mothers share their experiences on how they ventured out of their comfort zones and into e-commerce. Karen, Primarose, and Glenda are a testament to what working mothers in tech are capable of achieving –  whether they are riders, livestream partners, or employees of Shopee.



Karen: Homegrown Shopee Leader 

Having previously worked in the operations side of the FMCG industry, Karen Perez, a wife and mother to two daughters, made the switch to join Shopee and become its first employee in the Philippines seven years ago to lead its Operations Team. She had hesitations, but she knew that being part of the tech industry would help her develop even more as a professional. “I already had one daughter and was pregnant with my youngest by the time I joined Shopee, and I had apprehensions about joining a young company. Eventually, I accepted the opportunity because I was excited to be part of the growing e-commerce sector.”


She recently took on a new role as the Head of People at Shopee Philippines. For those around her, this comes as no surprise as she has always approached leadership by building personal relationships in the workplace. She went from dealing with the backend aspects of the business to focusing her time to caring for people and their well-being. Karen shares, “I am grateful that my unique skill sets are recognized and I am given all these opportunities to grow within and lead the organization.” Despite the differences between the two fields, Karen believes that her experience both as a mother and wife helped mold her into the leader that she wanted to be. She credits the culture of Shopee for allowing her to be that. “Being both a mother and a department head has shown me what it means to be a good leader. Much like motherhood, leadership, at its very core, is caring for one’s people.” 


What is most rewarding for Karen is getting the admiration of the people whose opinion matters to her the most: her children. “Recently, I asked my eldest daughter what she wants to be when she grows up and she simply said, ‘I want to be like you.’ I am grateful to be doing meaningful work, and I hope my children strive to do the same someday.” 


Primarose: Rising to the challenge at Shopee Xpress

Primarose is a wife, a mother to three children, and a Shopee Xpress rider. Her unique journey with Shopee Xpress first began in June of 2021 after the pandemic forced her to close her souvenir store.


Being one of the few female riders in her line of profession, Primarose knows she has to be determined, and she has no regrets. She shared “Iba na ang panahon natin ngayon, hindi lang lalaki ang pwede magtrabaho. Nais ko ipakita sa mga ibang ina na kayang kaya rin nila makamit ang kanilang mga hangad.” (We live in a different age where women also have the opportunity to work. I want to show other mothers that they are capable of reaching their aspirations.)


She is now reaping the rewards of her efforts as she is now able to help provide for her family, and even take them out to eat in restaurants and go on outings. “Sa lahat ng nangyari mula sa pandemya, nagpapasalamat ako ng lubos na nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon na magiging Shopee Xpress rider. Naging makahulugan ang pagiging ina at asawa ko dahil nabigay ko sa kanila ang pangangailangan nila mula sa trabaho ko bilang rider.” (Of all the things to have come out of this pandemic, I am most grateful that it gave me the opportunity to become a Shopee Xpress rider. I feel fulfilled as both a mother and wife knowing that I am able to provide for my family through my job.)


Mommy Gee: Finding balance as a working mother

Prior to becoming a Shopee livestreamer, Glenda, also known as Mommy Gee, started her journey in creating online content by posting about what means most to her: her children. She is a single mom working multiple jobs to support her three children, and struggled with something most moms would know about: time management. Besides doing online content, Mommy Gee is also a licensed real estate agent and entrepreneur as she owns a Korean food franchise. When the pandemic struck, her real estate job experienced a hit which is why she chose to become a Shopee livestreamer. She shared, “As a single mother to three children, I felt the need to take on as much as I could to make up for the many lost opportunities I faced during the onslaught of the pandemic. ” 


Mommy Gee chose to persevere doing livestream. At first, she wasn’t confident doing it but as time went by, she became more confident and eventually began to enjoy it. She loves helping people find their Shopee budols, and more importantly, connecting and making friends online. “As a single mother, I feel very blessed to have a job that allows me to spend more time with my children at home while also also giving me the opportunity to connect with a supportive online community.” shared Mommy Gee.


She encourages other working mothers to venture out of their comfort zones and persevere. Mommy Gee said “Starting out as a Shopee Livestreamer did not come easy for me, but I stuck with my decision and persevered. Seeing how much I have grown and learned since then is what pushes me to continue challenging myself.”
