I am got this recipe in one of cooking segments in TV. Good timing because I just bought some alimasag few hours earlier. However, the recipe featured fried alimango. Why not try with steamed alimasag?

Seafoods Sunday

Last Sunday, I went to market and bought stuffs needed for the week's menu. Since I was alone in the market, I got a chance to buy what I want. Right, Mommy?

As I searched for fish in the wet section, I got cravings for seafoods so I got some pieces of shrimps and alimasag (crab) instead of Maya-maya (snapper fish). These will be our lunch for the day.

Herbal Plants: Serpentina (King of Bitters)

I am a supporter of herbal medicine. I planted oregano, lemon grass, balbas-pusa (Cat’s whiskers), ashitaba, serpentina.

Healing Galing are selling serpentina tablet made from plant or known as King of Bitters. Why King of Bitters? Because of its extreme bitterness that a tiny leaf’s infusion (tiny leaf added with hot water) is 10 times or more bitter than the extract of a large ampalaya.  Adding a teaspoon of honey can reduce the bitterness.

Serpentina or King of Bitters Plant
(Andrographis paniculata)
What are the benefits that you can get from this plant?
From what I know, this is good for diabetic in regulating or lowering blood sugar. Furthermore it is also known for its antibiotic property. This is the reason why we took this herbal plant when we are having cough and colds.

Aside from lowering blood sugar and antibiotic properties, there are other benefits that we can get from this bitter plant:
Analagesic – pain killer
Anti-inflammatory – reduces swelling
Antibacterial – has a remarkable effect in reducing diarrhea and other bacterial infections
Antimalarial – helps prevent parasite infection and multiplication in the blood stream
Antihepatotoxic and Hepatoprotective – eliminates liver toxins and protects liver and gall bladder
Antipyretic – reduces fever
Antithrombotic – blood clot prevention. Helps prevent heart attack.
Antiviral – inhibits viral activity including HIV (further studies are being made)
Antioxidant – fights free radicals
Canceolytic – cancer fighter or better to say cancer killer
Cardiopotective – protects heart muscles
Choleretic – increases the flow of bile
Depurative – cleans the system especially the blood stream
Expectorant – releases mucus in the respiratory system
Hypoglycemic – lowers blood sugar and protect against diabetes
Immune enhancer – increases immune system
Vermicidal – kills intestinal worms

It can be used againts coughs, headaches, edema, earache, pain conditions, inflammation and muscular pain, arthritis, rheumatism, fibro myalgia, multiple sclerosis, depression, diarrhea, dysentery, cholera, candida, lupus, diabetes, piles, fevers, fatigue, hepatitis, herpes, leprosy, loss of appetite, swollen lymph nodes and other lymphatic conditions, jaundice, dyspepsia, dermatitis, eczema, burns, pneumonia, bronchitis, tuberculosis, chicken pox, mumps; sluggish liver, spleen, kidneys and adrenal glands; sleeplessness, vaginitis, and constipation.

On the other hand, cautions must be taken with this plant because there are records but rare cases of skin itching. Furthermore, it is not recommended for breastfeeding and pregnant women due to its abortive effect.

There are various ways to prepare and use this plant. It can be taken dried leaves or infusion. Most literatures suggest that you need to take 5 to 6 grams of dried leaves per day. Dried leaves can be placed in gelatin capsule (the one I made and give to Matt’s Tita to help reduce or better eliminate her breast lumps. I used 250mg per capsule) or infusion of 1:2 fluid extract taken 3-12 ml per day. The latter is quite good if you can stand the bitterness.

Serpentina has many uses that could benefit our health. The said plant has very low toxicity and no overdosage cases have been reported. Perhaps it is because unlike any other herbs, you won’t wish to have more than the recommended dosage due to its extreme bitterness.

Hopefully, I can reach the minimum value before the end of the month so I can have my fourth cashout next month.

Where is Healing Galing Office?

These are the simplest ways if you want to go to Healing Galing office not only to buy products but for a free consultation. Their office is located at

Career Development Institute
522 Quirino Hi-way,
Brgy. Talipapa,
Novaliches Quezon City

There are several ways to get to their office.

If you are from the North via NLEx, make an exit at Mindanao Avenue and take the ramp to Novaliches. Turn right at the Mindanao Avenue-Quirino Highway Crossing. Just few meters from the intersection, you will find the Man Automotive Concessionaires Corp. and just in front of it is the Healing Galing office.

If you are from Manila Area, just go to Balintawak Circle and take a jeepney bound to Novaliches Bayan. Ask the driver if he will cross Mindanao Avenue. Just drop before reaching Mindanao Avenue-Quirino Hi-way intersection in front of 7-11 and take few walks backwards.

If you have your own vehicle, it is better to go there during weekends since you can have free parking in front of Eastwest bank beside the CDI Building.

There are other ways to get to their office but the best thing you need to keep in mind is to reach the Mindanao Avenue-Quirino Hi-way intersection and the Career Development Institute Building because their office is just few walks away from the said intersection.

Healing Galing Visit

My MIL was found to have slight Parkinson's Disease. She was given several medications by her neurologist but it seems that these medications are used for maintenance and not to cure her. I heard in one of my favorite radio program, Healing Galing about the said condition and how to treat it in natural ways.

Last Sunday, we decided to bring her at their office in Novaliches.

Made to Order Crochet Items

We started selling made to order Made to Order Crochet Items  in Momaye’s Shoppe about 3 months ago. Mommy and I agreed that she will take charge of the booties, shoes and sandals while I will do the hats. As of now, I made almost 30 hats with about 20 different designs and still counting. Here are some some of the designs.


Doing the items is really tiring but fulfilling when we received feedbacks from the customers after receiving the items.

For your orders, you may visit Momaye’s Shoppe and place your orders and other inquiries.
