Sinabawang Tuna Chunks With Malunggay


For the past week, I have been under the weather. The sudden change of climate made me suffer


from rhinitis. Even if I am not feeling well, I don't want to compromise how I take care of the kids. That's how we are moms right? We still try our best to take care of the family. 

Anyway, because I want to uncomplicate things at home, I made a simple dish which you can whip for only 10 minutes of your time, healthy and delicious. You know very well that my children loves fish and soup so much that they want to eat it every single day of our lives. To make everyone else happy, I added malunggay leaves to boost my milk supply and make my little girl happy as well. Leaves for her is life. HAHA.

RECIPE:

Ingredients:


1 can Tuna Chunks (Gold Seas)
Onion, quartered
Garlic, pounded
Tomato, halved
Malunggay leaves 
Kalamansi
Salt to taste

Procedure:

1. Boil 500ml water. Once it is already boiling, add onion, garlic, and tomato.
2. Add tuna chunks, let it boil for one minute.
3. Add malunggay leaves, let it boil for one minute.
4. Add kalamansi and salt to taste.
5. Serve. 


You can use other brands of tuna. I prefer this one because the tuna is not shredded. Oh, the one in the photo is dried malunggay leaves. Mom always brings me dried malunggay leaves whenever she visit and I just stock them in the pantry. Her malunggay leaves tastes way better than those that I buy here in the market.

My Laundry Secret and Fashion Care

I will share with you a secret. I have superpowers. YES, you read it right.

If you have been following me for years, it is no secret that I am nannyless and that we only tend to ourselves and with a little help from family. I never got help for the same reasons few years ago and I can be happier with that, most especially I am imparting responsibilities and chores to my children.

But you know what, with all the chores that needs to be done in our home, washing clothes is my most favourite. In fact, I don’t like it done by laundry shops because I am very keen to our clothes’ cleanliness. Even if I cannot iron them all, at least I know it smells fresh and clean. Getting a good washing machine is my top priority aside from a refrigerator in our home because it aids my superpowers to get things done. Now you know why I have superpowers? HAHA. 



















We are five in our home and we change clothes several times a day plus I use cloth diaper to my youngest which adds up to the pile of laundry (don’t get me wrong on this, I love washing but I am just stating facts as to how much laundry we accumulate in a week). Since my kids
have their own choices of clothes, I cannot impose my own choice even if the fabrics includes those that are delicate ones.

FashionCare is important to me, the very reason why I do our laundry. I have to carefully address each fabric/clothes how to properly make them clean. I need proper detergent, washing machine like Electrolux that has all the qualities I need to aid my laundry time. I can switch the mode to which fabrics I am going to wash--to the right amount of temperature plus the correct spin action our clothes need. Electrolux washing machines can be very helpful to us most especially moms like me who are nannyless and does all the chores at home.

Getting our laundry done doesn’t need so much drama and fashion care isn’t that much of an issue. It just needs right washing machine to help me make my family comfortable with the clothes they wear to make them confident enough to face challenges everyday because they know what they wear smells fresh and clean all day long.

So what about you? Do you have any super powers like me? Share your thoughts.

Letter to My First Born On His 7th Birthday


Dear My Love,

Several years ago, I wished to become a mom for the reason that I want to have a family of my own and have a reason for my existence. Everything was falling a part that time. I felt like losing all of what I worked for because everything is not going my way. 


But then you came, those tears of failures vanished. In an instant, it became joy. All of a sudden, I am growing a lovely human being inside and from that moment on, I fell inlove once again. The hate and sorrows turned into bliss and laughter. Those months of you in my womb gave me endless anxiety because I was a first time mom. But you never gave me a hard time. You made me strong that I never knew I was. I bravely faced all tests, needles and the pain I have to endure just to see you and hold you in my arms. When I saw you from the OR, you were the most wonderful gift ever given to me. I felt complete.

Please continue to be a good boy and responsible eldest to your siblings. I hope you achieve your dreams one day and that you will never fail to be as humble and as a loving son to us. May you become successful with all your endeavours. We will be here to support you all the way, please remember that. 

Happiest birthday my love. We love you so much!

Love,

Mama

KKK Kilusang Kontra Kuto With LiceAliz


Have you ever imagined yourself as a kid scratching all day for no apparent reason? That was what I can remember decades ago when I had my first and last lice infestation. If my memory serves me right, I got it from our nannies when we shared combs and they were the ones also who had hard time of removing it. There was no other means of removing it aside from the magic suyod. I was thankful though that they didn’t do harsh things on my crowning glory but dealt with it in a gentle way.

But did you know that it has become a problem with most of the school children? Most of them are in public elementary schools wherein there is proper information dissemination yet. It primarily affects their studies and eventually become a social stigma and to the extent that it has become a reason for bullying amongst others.

But first let us first know some facts about lice infestation or pediculosis in medical term.

  • It can lay as much as 100 eggs.
  • Their eggs can hatch after 7 days and can lay another 100 eggs. So that will be 700 in total. WHAT?!?
  • They can live up to 3 days if they are not in someone’s head. It means they can still be alive if dislodged somewhere in those combs/brushes and could still possibly be transferred to someone’s head. But please note though that they don’t have wings, they only crawl.
  • Most of the females are the one affected by pediculosis. 




Mommy Blogger Lani shares her experiences with lice infestation

Starting this September, Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo will be conducting Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto as a part of its Kilusang Kontra Kuto effort to educate the public on lice infestation issues. The Licealiz caravan will travel to different schools and barangays all over the country to hold shampooing programs and lectures for students and their parents.

A survey of communities visited by the Licealiz caravan last year found that 47% of respondents from Visayas and 76% of respondents from Mindanao said that their children were bullied and teased for having head lice, causing some of them to miss school to avoid their peers. The parents, on the other hand, feel incompetent and embarrassed for being unable to prevent head lice from infesting their children.

Now that we have LiceAliz, it is not close to impossible eradicating lice and be educated with how we can fully eradicate it in children. We can also prevent the social stigma it may bring to children.

How do we use LiceAliz shampoo?
  • Wet hair.
  • Apply shampoo to wet hair.
  • Massage hair scalp and leave shampoo for 10 minutes.
  • Rinse hair.
  • Use suyod to comb hair and remove dead lice.

LiceAliz Shampoo has two variants and is available at Mercury Drug and other leading stores nationwide for P71.75 SRP for 60ml bottle. It is also available in 10ml sachet for P12.75 SRP.
