Lili's Thank You Note..

Lili's birthday was a blast, although it was celebrated simply with a few of her friends, our family and some neighbors. She received gifts mostly purses, shoes and money and she was happy with everything, even the simple greetings only. My Lili does not need branded items like prada sunglasses or expensive gadgets. She was raised to appreciate everything, although she has her wants too, but she is more concerned with how much one sincerely gives, and thanking persons for what they give.



I got this awesome thank you note cum self-made card  after her birthday..

5 Reasons Chicken is a Super Meat

You've probably heard people say that you should eat more chicken, and a real reason for this exists. Chicken has a lot of benefits, and here are five of the reasons why it is considered to be a super meat.

A Healthy Alternative

Loading up on red meats and pork is not really the best idea because both of these tend to add fat to your body. On top of that, they can really affect your cholesterol and heart health in a negative manner. Chicken, on the contrary, is much better for you, and it is considered to be a lean meat. When you are looking to lose some weight or lead an overall healthier lifestyle, chicken is the meat you want to eat.

It's Versatile

Chicken is also a super meat because it can be used in so many different ways. You can throw some sauce and mozzarella on it and bake it in the oven, or you can chop it up and serve it with a pasta dash. When you have ground chicken, making chicken burgers or chicken tacos is a breeze. Of course, you can make some fried chicken too, but then you are really losing the health value of it. Click here for more fun recipes to try out.

It Pleases Many Palates

When you are having a dinner party or other type of formal reception, you obviously have plenty of choices to make. Deciding what you are going to feed everyone is certainly a decision that needs to be taken care of. Opting for anything too out-of-the-ordinary might mean that your guests are unhappy with their dishes. Fortunately, chicken is a meat that so many people like. When you put it on the menu for the event, you truly can make all of your guests happy.

Giving You Power

Chicken is low in fat, but it also has plenty of protein in it. Protein can really give you energy when you feel that you are in a slump, and it is also good for your health in otherwise. It helps to build up strong muscles and bones, so you'll know that you are really comprehensively providing for your health when you eat it. Protein has such a tremendous role in your body, and you absolutely need it to stay strong and to tackle all of life's challenges.

Kids Love It!

You've probably seen children who love their little chicken nuggets. Even if you do not want to feed chicken nuggets to your children, you can let them know that the meat is chicken. By simply saying chicken, you may be able to introduce your little ones to an array of foods that they would have never consumed otherwise.
When you hear of a super meat, you might not immediately think of chicken. Fortunately, this type of food has so many benefits to it, and you really cannot deny the power that it brings to your dinner table.

Kalayaan 2013: Ambagan Tungo sa Malawakang Kaunlaran

We were told to report to the Capitol Grounds, by our Principal, to attend the Independence Day Flag Raising this morning.  The Misamis Oriental Chorale opened the event with their rendition of a Christian song for the invocation and they also sung the National Anthem while the flag was being raised.


What I find most inspiring was the message of our mayor elect who is currently the governor of Misamis Oriental, Oscar Moreno. It was quite a long message, but I made sure I have captured it on video to share here, when I am done uploading it at youtube. 


After which, wreath laying followed, with lots of pictorials to cap the event.



What I love most about today's event is that, we were all reminded that although we are free, we have some responsibility to keep our nation free. Freedom, not only from domination or from outside forces, but freedom from poverty as well as illiteracy.

Handog ng Police Station 1

I saw one of our students holding a plastic envelope with notebooks and all other school supplies, and I asked him why he and his classmates are holding the same loot, all of the same brand. 


I found out that the policemen from police station 1 have in fact gathered their resources for a gift giving activity to public schools in the area. And one of the schools they visited with the loot was our school. So that answered my question as I entered the gates of our school. I wondered why a police patrol car was parked just in front of the admin office. I thought there was a problem that needed their assistance. 


It was actually them who came and gave our grade 7 students assistance in terms of providing school supplies that they can use for this school year, 2013-2014. 


Here you can see police officers giving out more by asking some relevant questions, and each correct answer  was given a prize. 


I was not able to get the names of these officers, but I would like to thank them for their sincere efforts in helping some of our students. School supplies are not cheap these days. Some of the parents of our students could not afford to buy them. That is a sad fact.. 


On our way out, I met three officers holding their banner, so I asked them for a photo for the purpose of this blog post. 


Thank you so much dear officers from Police Station 1. Surely, your help for our grade 7 students will go a long way. Kudos!!!

Whew!

I have now an added expense for school year 2013-2014 as I have pledged to send a working student to a four year college course. I do not know how everything will work out, but I know it will. I have paid for Lili's tuition in full for the entire school year, so I guess I will only have to worry about this working student's tuition and monthly fees. Sometimes, I think of taking on a business cash advance and build a simple business to help me earn a few more bucks to help with all the upcoming expenses, but I am not sure if it will be a good idea for me. The struggle is that I have not fully recovered from my medical expenses when I got sick in May, plus the enrollment of Lili and that of the working student, but again, I am positive everything will be okay. I trust the Universe will align my path to positivity and financial freedom. 

Being positive about this situation is all I can do, because I know I should inject positivism if I want to survive this..

Congratz Lili!

Today, my Lili has joined the 11th Summer Recital of their music school. I am happy that after only 9 meetings or sessions as she has only started this summer, she can already play the violin.    



I was feeling mixed emotion earlier while I was taking a video of her performance.. and I was really very proud when she was well applauded after her performance..
