Quick, easy & healthy meals

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hormel Foods. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hormel is one imported brand I can count on for a quick, delicious and healthy easy meal for my family. As a housewife, I am pre-occupied with my daily routine and that’s doing the household chores and taking care of our needs from an orderly house to clean clothes and of course the most important one, the food. With such a busy day I know I can count on Hormel products at times I need to prepare the table in such a short period of time. That’s one important reason why I have Hormel in my grocery list always.

Beef is so tasty and it’s one of kids’ favorites. I do have 2 kids and both are schooling. For a busy mom like me hormel products always save my day. I can easily prepare breakfast or even their packed lunch in minutes with the help of this healthy and delicious Dinty Moore Beef Stew. I do have it in can and in tray so I can choose considering the time involve. It is so easy to prepare. I can just heat up a can of beef stew in a pan in minutes and serve it with rice. So easy and quick indeed and for sure healthy for the kids because it has no preservatives and less calories.

I remember one incident when hubby was craving for a midnight snack. It was the first time I prepared my version of “Philly Steak Cheese Sandwich” for him. So easy to prepare with Beef Roast Au Jus Entrée, sliced onion, cheese dip, buns and pounded pepper around. There are other recipes available in Hormel’s recipe section and you can do too check them out and maybe like me make your own version of it.

Thanks to Hormel Foods! Preparing quick, healthy and delicious meals and snacks for the family becomes easy.

30-foot Zip line @ Splash Island

Last March 28, journalists from print and broadcast celebrated MEDIA FAMILY DAY @ SPLASH ISLAND. Said event was attended by reporters, writers and broadcasters from different networks and radio stations together with their families that truly enjoy a day of aqua filled adventure in the well-maintained and world class facilities of Splash Island.

Hubby and my kids tried to ride on the 30-foot zip line of the resort. The harness put in place then went up to the 30-foot structure, fastened the harness on the metal cord and ride. They rode together on the first way then separated on their way back. It was indeed a joy ride and more rides to do on our next visit.

Come and enjoy summer @ Splash Island.

My daughter's Year-End Recognition Day

Today is the Year-End Recognition Day of my daughter, Ysabel Nicole. She is in Grade 3 at St. Matthew College in San Mateo, Rizal. She’s always included in the recognition since her Grade 1 when she was transferred to that school. This school year’s recognition she was able to reap 3 gold medals for herself. She ranked the overall TOP 1 from her level (with 7 subject proficiencies), no. 1 also in the Deportment Category and no. 1 in the extra-curricular activities.

Every Year-End Recognition, her school gives recognition on 3 categories: overall academic performance, deportment (attitude) and extra-curricular activities. I know the hardships and perseverance my daughter went through this school year but it all pays off.

From me, papa and Justin we are so very proud of you and keep up the good work.

Is Turkish flour carcinogenic?

I have seen on TV the news about this Turkish flour and of course I am worried not only for my family but for all the people who consume flour-based foods like bread and pasta. Reports came out that said flour contains “mycotoxins” and other attributes that cause cancer. Actually Senator Aquilino Pimentel Jr. is calling for a total ban on imports of Turkish flour citing certain tests made on the said flour in 2007 by leading Turkish Universities. It came out in the said tests that 81 percent of samples of flour taken were contaminated with OTA (Ochratoxin A).

However the Filipino-Chinese Bakery Association opposed the ban because this Turkish flour is cheaper by 100 pesos per sack as compared to regular flour. They wanted the authorities to prove the carcinogenic attributes of the said flour before they push through with the total ban.

I guess the Bureau of Food and Drugs or BFAD must do their job well on this matter because it is truly of public safety issue.

Zenni Optical helps you see it clearly

Good things need not to be expensive like prescription eyeglasses. At Zenni Optical, there are vast selection of eyeglasses to choose from that are fashionable, stylish, of very high quality products of great durability, safety and comfort at a price you can easily afford. In fact with such prices you can afford to have different styles of eyeglasses to suit your outfit or maybe your mood and even an occasion you need to attend too.

Am I wrong to say affordable? Of course not and many people around the world can attest to that. An article written by Eric that "Cheap eyeglasses are a reality" is a manifestation of this fact that can be found in this link: Zenni Optical understands and treasures the hard earned money of its valued customers. With the use of latest modern materials, manufacturing and marketing strategies they bring their products direct to their customers from their very own factory. In that regard they are able to eliminate expenses that will add up to the costs of their eyeglasses like middlemen, retail overhead and even advertising cost. They rely barely on the feedback from their satisfied customers to spread good things about their products, their very own manufactured brand ZENNI.

Let me give you an example of how Zenni Optical’s eyeglasses can be as affordable as you can imagine. They have this Item#2319 (see inserted frame) which is a medium narrow size translucent full-rim frame that can only costs you $8. With such a price, style and quality you can be able to buy and collect other designs without hurting your pocket or ruining your budget.

Beware: Summer coolers with magic sugar

If you like buying halo-halo and other summer coolers from street vendors and shabby canteen then you need to take extra caution. The Department of Health (DOH) thru Health Secretary Esperanza Cabral warns the public with the used of “magic sugar” by several vendors as artificial sweetener due to high cane sugar prices. She said that this may cause a number of health risks because it contains sodium cyclamate. It is a substance banned in most countries since it is unfit for human consumption.

YouTube: Arnel Pineda sings Lupang Hinirang

Aside from waiting for the main event, Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey fight, people also awaits the rendition of Journey’s Filipino front man Arnel Pineda of “Lupang Hinirang.” The singing of the national anthem always creates controversy in some fights of Manny and the recent fight is one. National Historical Institute’s (NHI) Teddy Atienza, chief of NHI’s Heraldry Section, disclosed that the board was not pleased when it heard Pineda’s version.

I think NHI must make its own ruling to avoid such controversy. They always find something wrong in the renditions now and before and in that regard they must draw the line to avoid future issues.

Carlos "Caloy" Castro dies @ 74

There are people that no matter how famous or known they are they were still able to keep their feet on the ground. It was on December of 2004 when I met an executive officer in the company I worked with after my schooling. He is so charming, kind and very accommodating that even at your first meeting you will like his personalities. As time passes by the more I see how genuine he is and why people get to love and respect him.

My Ninong Carlos “Sir Caloy” Castro just passed away around 10pm of March 12 due to Pneumonia at Tondo General Hospital. I can’t help but cry despite of many years of not seeing each other because my love and highest respect for him never lose with our distance and it will always remain that way.

Farewell Ninong Caloy!

Malampaya oil field: Gov't selling its share

I have read the article of Ms. Miriam Coronel Ferrer over ABS-CBN’s website and I can’t help but swing my head left and right and ask this government a big WHY? If all the given details in that article are right why this government sells an asset that can serve as a goose that lays a golden egg for our beloved country? There are only about 2 months before the 2010 Elections and aside from the midnight appointments controversy this government is still not giving up of cheating people and its worst corruption doings.

I guess this issue must be address and made known to the public before it’s too late for the country to know that our 10 percent share in the Malampaya oil field is gone with the wind.

YouTube: Jovit Baldivino @ Pilipinas Got Talent

Pilipinas Got Talent” paved the way to one of the YouTube sensations nowadays, Jovit Baldivino. I was really amazed as he sung his version of Journey’s “Faithfully” during his audition on February 27. But aside from loving his voice I got to love the personality of this boy. Apart from the attitudes of boys in his age, this boy is dedicated on his studies and at the same time trying to help his family in their living. Jovit is a vocalist of an all-male band called “Valedeta” and his exposure in “PGT” helped the group got more gigs.

Congratulations and good luck! Hope you can make it till the end. You not only share your talent to the viewers but moreover we admired you for being such a good son and brother to your family and a good example to youth. More blessings to come.
