Pusong Bato

Akala ko natagpuan ko na,
Pag-ibig na inaasam-asam;
Akala ko na nakamit ko na,
Pagsintang walang agam-agam.

Ngunit bakit kung kailan panatag na,
Ay saka biglang nag-iba;
Ang noo'y masayang pagsasama,
Tila nahaluan ng pagdududa.

Puso ko'y nagdurugo,
Katawan ay nanlulumo;
Damdamin ay nabilanggo,
Bakit ako'y ipinagkanulo.

Hanggan kailan magtitiis?
Ito ang nais na mabatid;
Hanggang kailan tatangis?
Upang pasakit ay mapatid.

Panahon na para sumuko,
Sa puso kong pagod ay payo;
Sadyang may mga bagay sa mundo,
Na hindi nararapat sayo.

Paalam na mahal ko,
Ayoko ng magpakagago;
Sa taong di marunong magpakatotoo,
Pagkat puso nya'y tunay ngang sintigas ng bato!

Pholigo, the healthier way to go!

Everyone who knows me knew that I am a Foodie and am definitely not a picky eater. :) And my being adventurous in life surely extends to my eating habit! I am very much open minded to try and eat almost anything under the sun. Hahaha... We only live once anyway so I might as well make the most out of it, right?! Growing up, I used to be too skinny (yeah, you read it right!). I used to be just around 90 to 105 lbs.  And this fact sure did fired up my love for eating as I really wanted to gain even just a little more weight. Fast forward, I am now weighing more or less 140 lbs! Whoah! What happened to me?! 

Acknowledging the fact that my metabolism have really slowed down and that I am no longer getting any younger, for the past months now, I have been on the lookout of ways on how to improve my weight, my health and my lifestyle. The mushrooming Korean and buffet restaurants are likewise not being of help. The struggle of resisting the temptation is real! hahaha

Fortunately, God sent me an angel. And this angel, introduced me to the wonderful benefits that PhOligo has to offer.

PhOligo, the healthier way to go!

But what really is PhOligo?

It is a globally known natural plant-derived prebiotic powder used as a nutrition fortifier. Aside from its innate good taste, its excellent versatility in application makes it the perfect addition to any any food or beverage. Personally, I love adding it to my coffee and tea, and even in my juices, and I swear, it doesn't alter the taste of any of these drinks. What I just don't like much is adding it to plain water as I can somehow taste the PhOligo in it. Have not tried adding it in any meals though. Next time, I will.

PhOligo creates the ideal digestive environment as it has been proven to nourish and support the growth as well as the activities of beneficial bacteria in the colon, thus improving general health and well being. It helps relieve constipation and reduce the production of toxins in the colon.

Regular bowel movement is really not a concern for me but since I started incorporating PhOligo in my diet, I noticed that my trip to the comfort room have increased. Instead of going to the bathroom only once every morning, there were days that I also sit on the throne during night time. Bumibilis na yata ulit metabolism ko! :) Another observation is that I do not have to struggle anymore. hahhaha Everything was flushed out in a flash! lol! But for me, the most significant effect of Pholigo on me is that my body feels lighter now. Ang gaan sa pakiramdam! Mukhang madami-dami na ring toxins ang nailabas ng katawan ko and it really feels good! I guess now there is the possibility for me to lose weight! Let's see! Haahahaha

But wait, there is more to PhOligo than just creating the ideal digestive environment. It also aids in the absorption of vitamins and minerals, and this may also be the reason why I am feeling so good. Antoher benefit of this prebiotic powder is that it also develops and improves the immune system, which in turn also helps reduce risks for a wide variety of disorders.

Having enumerated all of the above wonderful effects, would I recommend PhOligo? I give it a Big Yes!

So, are you now interested to know more about PhOligo? Go and visit their website here.

Do You Fall into #MalnutritionTraps?

For more than 20 years now, Philippines has been facing the rise on the number of underweight and overweight Filipino. The World Health Organization (WHO) defined this phenomenon as the “Double Burden of Malnutrition” or the “prevalence of both under nutrition and overweight in the same community, nation, or region.”

To address this problem, the government launched the Pinggang Pinoy® campaign in 2014. But, what really is this campaign all about? Pinggang Pinoy® is an easy-to-understand food guide showing proper food group portioning on a per-meal basis which reflects the principles of MOderation, VAriety and BAlance (MOVABA) to promote healthier eating habits.

Acknowledging the fact that solving the Philippines’ Double Burden of Malnutrition is not an easy feat, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation recognizes the need for a collaborative effort between the public and private sectors. With this, Ajinomoto partnered with government agencies to conduct education programs to raise awareness and promote the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® in malnutrition hotspots, where incidences of Double Burden Malnutrition are high. Trainings were given to homemakers/mothers who have malnourished (underweight, stunting, wasting, overweight and obese) school-aged children.

The pilot run resulted to improvements of the knowledge & attitudes of households related to the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® within target areas. However, behavior changes towards healthier eating habits remains to be a challenge. The program uncovered a number #MalnutritionTraps that some Pinoy households easily fall into. The following #MalnutritionTraps provide a picture of how unhealthy eating habits may lead to Double Burden of Malnutrition:

 1. Overconsumption of carbohydrates: Voracious rice eaters can easily fill half of their plates with rice. Others have pandesal & noodles as regular meal deprived of other nutrients derived from a well-balanced meal.

 2. Under consumption of vegetables and/fruits: It is common for some to be content with rice & meat to satisfy their hunger and skip/take insufficient amount of vegetables/fruits. Fact is, the variety of colors found in Glow foods are important sources of vitamins & minerals to sustain our energy & keep us from getting sick.

3. Overconsumption of protein: Typical Filipino “SILOG” meals include double serving of proteins (e.g. Tapa+Itlog, Tocino+Itlog, Longanisa+Itlog, Bangus+Itlog). Eating different kinds of protein is fine for as long as they are taken in moderation. We must also avoid protein dishes served high in fat, cholesterol and sodium.

More stories about #MalnutritionTraps can be referenced from these documentary videos:

"Puro Carbs"

"Kulang sa Protina"
"Pamilya Unlirice"

"Breakfast Skipper"

To help Filipinos break free from #MalnutritionTraps, Ajinomoto’s Culinary Nutrition Team prepared Healthy & Delicious Pinggang Pinoy® Recipes, downloadable through Busy and budget-restricted homemakers will also find these Pinggang Pinoy® recipes useful because all are easy-to-do and affordable (P250/day for family of 5).

Goodbye 2018! Welcome 2019!

I know its been a while since I last posted, and I really miss you all! And I really miss blogging ( I really do.).

The past months had been really hectic for me and I really don't know why. I used to be great in managing my time, I don't know what happened... I think it is time for me to finally admit now... I am aging! I am really getting old! Huhuhu... Can no longer stay up much late like I used to. And when I do, it usually takes me at least 3 days to fully charge my body again! Waaah!

Or maybe, I just need to take more vitamins?! Hahahahaha

Anyway, before I blame my age further, let me greet you my readers ( I really do hope that you are still out there, no matter how few you may be! Hahahaha) a very Happy New Year! Let us all be positive and let us all welcome 2019 with open arms! 2018 might have a lot of ups and downs, which I won't be enumerating anymore, but I am just glad that I was able to surpassed them all! I know you all do too! And that's all that matters! :)

And this year, unlike the past years, I won't be making any promises anymore. For 2019, I will just try to do whatever I can – in my own time and in my own pace! I will no longer let anyone or anything dictate my decisions and my pace, it is my life anyway! I am right, right?! ;)

Again, Happy New Year to all! Goodbye 2018! Welcome 2019! Let us all be merry and spread the good vibes on Earth and on the World Wide Web!!!
