Pancit Canton Day

Pancit Canton Especial

I missed eating noodles. Before I went home last night, I dropped by in one of my favorite restaurant that cooked specialty meals like this special pancit canton. Ingredients like shrimps,chicken and pork together with carrots, celery and cabbage stir fried with sauce in fine noodles. The noodles were specially prepared by the restaurant and cooked home-made just for the noodle specialty recipes. What a delicious noodle meal!

Functions and Work Load

I had a meeting yesterday at the office regarding job functions and responsibilities. The functions given were a piece of cake for me (honestly speaking). However, it is the bulk of the said functions that I could not take as of this time. It is hard because after the moving in to the new office, the set-up is disorganized yet. There were lacking fixtures and equipment that are very much needed to do my functions. Output and efficiency are affected by the current set-up. I hope this could be resolved the soonest time.

Farewell, Michael Jackson

I stayed up late last night just to watched the live broadcast from Staples Center, Los Angeles on the memorial service for Michael Jackson. Many people attended including big celebrities that payed tribute to the genius man in the music industry. It was a sad moment to the fans and family because MJ is a big loss. I was still young then when I heard about his name and his popular music. I could say that he is really an icon. His demise could be forgotten by people but his music will continue to live on. Thank you, Michael Jackson for the music and inspiration that you brought to the world. Farewell and may you rest in Peace.

FERN-C the Super Vitamin C

I had been taking my daily dose of vitamin C in sodium ascorbate form ( FERN-C ) for the past 3 years now. It is an alkaline-based , natural vitamin C in a pH range of 7.5 to 7.8. For quite a long time of using this product, I can proudly say that my personal health is doing great. I take 2 capsules daily and in times when I can feel stress or too busy in my everyday activities, I can take up to 10 capsules a day without being overdosed or feeling dizzy.

Here are some of the beneficial results of taking Vitamin C:

1>As super anti-oxidant, it strengthens the immune system of the body.

2>It protects the body against flu, cough, bronchitis, respiratory problems, viral and bacterial infections.

3>Safeguards the heart and entire cardiovascular system from bad cholesterol deposits.

4>Helps ease mental stress and protects against stress-related disorders.

5>The anti-histamine actions of vitamin C enable people to tolerate food they otherwise could not eat because of allergy problems.

6>Reduces insulin requirements of diabetics.

7>Serves as a natural anesthetic and anti-inflammatory.

It is best for us to take Vitamin C in alkaline-based and NOT acidic-based. Alkaline based is a natural vitamin C. It can be taken as much as 10,000-20,000 mg/day; safe and effective. The higher the dosage the better. It dissolves quickly and is absorbed by the body 5-8 times faster than the acidic vitamin c tablets. It can be taken before or after meals; non-acidic, tummy-friendly. The body’s absorption is up to 95% and only 5% is being flushed out.

Our family has been very health conscious especially on the case of my Uncle Gene. Few years ago, he undergone an operation in which one of his kidneys was removed due to a cyst formation. Later, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and abdominal aortic aneurism (AAA). The doctors advised surgical removal of aneurism but no guarantee of success after. This could just pose an eminent danger to his life. His condition is sensitive and really needs extra care. At his age now of 75, he lives life and takes responsibility on his health. He was taking 60 capsules of vitamin C sodium ascorbate (FERN-C) per day until to date. I think this alternative approach has been proven to be successful as far as his condition is concerned.

Our future hopes and goals can best be build through a good foundation of our health, so start taking vitamin C sodium ascorbate and feel better.. live longer….

Father’s Day – Hungarian Meal

Beef Hungarian Goulash

We celebrated Father’s Day yesterday and as a treat to all my avid eating fans at home , I cooked this special meal from the country of Hungary. I learned to cook this recipe during my lessons on international cuisine. This is a menu of choice beef top-round tendered by beer and flavored with herb and spices. I’ve been tasting mostly local dishes at home but when I learned to prepare this foreign menu, I always made it as one of my recipes for special occasions.

Gifts for Me

My weekend was great because I received some gifts brought by my sis from Manila. They are just small items but somehow brought little happiness in compensation for life’s hard work. I got this Valentino time piece watch–simple but elegant and you can wear it in any day activity.

These pieces of lingerie by Hotpink in Rustans are also nice presents for me. Great style, comfortable and very feminine.

Juts another week of little blessings always worthy to be thankful for.

A (H1N1) Influenza On the Rise

The swine flu virus have risen to almost 92 here in the Philippines and according to the Department of Health news it is the highest in Asia now. This outbreak has been always in the daily news and it is alarming to hear as the number of cases increase these days. I think it is important for us to be cautiously attentive about the spread of this deadly virus because anybody can be infected of it. It pays to take extra care of our self this time especially our health by strengthening the the body’s immunity against the disease. Also minimize going to crowded places like parks or malls because you will not know anybody is already a carrier of this disease. It pays to be safe than sorry.

No More Traffic Day

I am happy to travel today from home to the city’s downtown center without the aggregation of things (pedestrians or vehicles) coming and going in the city. I had been suffering the daily traffic jam for the past two (2) months because of the construction and repair of some major highways. The roads were always in congestion of private and public transport services. It is a great relief for me now that I am able to report at the office just on time. What a great start of the day for this another week of living! 😀

Mt. Apo at a glance

A late afternoon shot of the Mt.Apo, the tallest peak in the Philippines. I had been waiting to capture this majestic view of the mountain. When I visited last week the crocodile park open field, that was then I had a chance to shot this sky scene and worth sharing for today’s Friday. Happy Skywatching to all!
