Few weeks ago, we visited a poultry farm due to some complaints regarding the feeds delivered to the farm.

During conversation with the farm owner, I noticed a very familiar plant in front of their office. So I asked one of the farm personels if that plant is really the one I know and it was confirmed, it was a Mulberry plant.

I picked some fruits and eat it. I am not aware that the farm owner saw me eating the berries and asked me, “Marunong ka pala kumain nyan?”.

This plant has been one of my favorites way back to our home town. This was very common in our vicinity because of the Silk Worm Production where leaves are used as food by the worms.

The farm owner further told us that the plant came from China which is the reason for having a larger berries compared to the one I used to eat. He also added that there are lots of health benefits we can get from the plant. I researched on health benefits of Mulberry and here are some of its the healing galing powers.

I Want a Foldable Bicycle

Yesterday, Matt had an educational trip to Laguna area. We left the school at around 6:30am and we need to be at the first destination - Jose Rizal's Home in Calamba, Laguna at around 9:00am. Unfortunately, we arrived the first destination at around 11:30am.

The main reason is TRAFFIC! We were caught in traffic at EDSA. Imagine, just passing the Kamuning fly-over took us about an hour.

With the increase number of vehicles travelling in EDSA, it is time for us to check for alternatives in order to avoid the traffic rush in the metro. One thing I have in mind is taking bicycle. Aside from getting away of the vehicle-congested roads, there are also other benefits that you can get in choosing this alternative.

Healthy Mind and Body - Riding the bicycle is one of the best workouts both cardiovascular and muscle-toning exercise burning more calories and strengthening different muscle groups. This also helps you clear's one head before going to work making you more concentrate on your work.

Christmas Wishlist: A Short Update

Christmas is fast approaching. Have you already completed your gift list or does someone already granted some of your wishlist? If not, you might be included in the naughty list by your Santa Claus. Just kidding.

There are four items in my Christmas Wishlist for this year. All belongs to electronics and gadgets. Last month, I already had one of the items in the list - a new smart phone. Another item in the list will be slashed down this month - the LED TV. Mommy and I already eyed the unit to be purchased soon but we are still considering some things before buying a new television unit.

First, our Christmas Party will be held next week. Who might know, we can bring home a new TV from the raffle draw. Asa mode lang. 

Second, I am waiting for my credit card cut-off so it will appear on my statement on January 2015 and will be paid in February 2015. #smartbuying.

Lastly, we haven't decided where it will be placed; on table-top or wall mount.

One thing for sure about this - the new TV will materialized before the year ends.

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to
allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong,
allow them to experience life on their own terms,
allow them to take the subway...
let them be better people,
let them believe more in themselves.”
