Think Positive

Always think positive are the three words that I usually told to my three young teenagers every time we got online and talked.An additional inspiring stories of a well known personalities world wide that I'm giving them as an examples based on some quotations that they need to know.

Rizah is just thirteen years old but she has so many things that differ from children's of same ages. She is the tallest among her classmates that sometimes she felt insulted in school. Paranormal words are always heard from her classmates.These are the things I worried that I saw her on webcam as if her inferiority complex had grown more.Additional thoughts she had was having a white patches , a dying skin pigments called vitiligo on her legs and on the upper portion or above the knees.We did some medical therapies like applying steroid creams , it helps but not totally returned to natural color of the skin.

In genetics it was hereditary but I asked the history of our both families , me and my husband , no one remembered that one relatives has this skin disease.As we all know that until now this kind of skin disease was still unknown to which experts and researchers cannot give any functions what will be the medicine to cure and to where its origin came from.There is one speculations that maybe the sufferer was luck of vitamin B12 or she has an anemia related illnesses.There is advises to avoid on exposing to sunlight or should apply or use sunscreen cream if they are outdoors.At the end of long research I came across to an end of just using cosmetics to cover the patches.

In psychological studies it affects the mental health of a person suffering vitiligo. As a mother I am so worried to my daughter because she is very conscious that might someone knew she has this skin disorder. She always asking me to buy medicines here abroad to cure her vitiligo. I'm saying always think positive but in time like this I myself losing the momentum to think positive that lead to my feelings of home sicknesses.

Kitchen Stuffs to send Home

I have 3 pieces of small kitchen stuffs that I need to send home soon. I got this as an early gift for Ros'ha'shana (Jewish new year) from the third son of my employer. I'm very very happy to have these stuffs even the bread prices in my country has a high costs.These are all using electricity which is a big weight to our budget also and slashing our pocket too.

kumkum- just a minute to boil water for coffee . Sometimes I used the hot boiled water in cooking rice so that it will not takes long time to cook rice. One time when the boiler in the bathroom was not fixed I boiled water here then mixed to cold running water to a pale or basin that we used for taking a bath. It was once that accidentally don't have power.

Slice bread toaster-it was funny sometimes that I inserted two pieces of slice bread then I forgot because I start cleaning the floor. I found it in the floor already , surely it jumped because I switched it to automatic if it is toasted.

bread sandwich toaster-one morning I put two sandwiches with a 3% cheese inserted to it but I went to comfort room just to urinate when I came back and checked it was already over toasted and burnt. eekkzzzzz...I did another pair

School Activities

Yanyan updates me of her activities on hospital training in Bulacan area.She is complaining of the head nurse assigned to them that they are left alone and not assisting them to the way it should be. So...I comforted her saying that much better to do things on her own way to learn and discover things of what she is doing during daily routine of duty in hospital.As of today the groups of nursing students are back in Manila to make their reports and back to school for their regular classes.A little bit hard for Yanyan that most her vacant hours is to stay on the Internet shop doing research work .Sometimes she went to a laundry nearby for her uniforms to wash and ironing it.I felt guilty of not helping or doing things for her during the busy days in school.

Rizah will have a science fair contest this coming week. Hope she could make it because her batch status went down to 23 rank , I think . Sad but I can't help her and hubby has too many things to do and always not feeling well due to his unconditional illness. Wheeww.,.. I'm hoping and praying to our Almighty God that I can be more stronger for all the challenges given to me.

Norman has usual routine playing basketball, play station maniacs and gamers every time without classes in school.So ...this all the latest from our home and for my three young teenagers life without me with them every day of their lives.

"TURON" made of BANANA

Looked what kind of banana I cooked- Cavendish banana! Half ripe Cavendish bananas cut into half sizes then slice into two pieces of each halves, sprinkled with brown or white refined sugar and wrapped it with egg roll wrapper then fry in small amount of regular cooking oil. It is called "turon" in my country that my three young teenagers love to eat.I missed them both because that turon I cooked is not same taste I imagined when I was home.

Our Banana in the Philippines has different varieties that we can cook in different menu's too.But here abroad has only one kind and they called it same name as anywhere we heard or "Cavendish Banana" that I saw and bought in the market.Unlike in my country Philippines we have "saba\" , "la tondan", "matabya", "pakil", "bungoran", "uri-od", etc.These bananas are another source of income and foods instead of rice as the main meals. We can cooked "saba" as like vegetables, turon like image above I cooked few minutes ago, banana crackers, etc. While the rest of varieties can be eat as raw foods.I missed them all, wahhhhh.....tears,cry, sigh..I feel homesick again. That is why I cooked what my kids really want during afternoon snacks.But now I'm alone here I eat 'em all to have one reason why I'm gaining weight.

ang RAMBUTAN bow!

(paki translate nga exactly mga kababayan ko - sa english ha?, please) "If you plant a seed you have to harvest soon" (di ko sure yan) is not just the saying but it was all true. The image is a rambutan fruit that I planted before I went abroad.Last month hubby sent me pictures of all trees bearing fruit in our backyard .In my location now they don't have this kind of fruit nor I seen it here or heard, so I just imagine the taste how it was during the season when I was home.

Rambutan has a hairy or leathery fruit skin with the sweet taste if it is ripe and ready to eat. Green color (on image) fruit skin outside if it is not yet ripe and yellow or ruby red if it is already ripe.The inside portion of that fruit was look like white gilatin (jelly) transparently wrapped around the seeds. If measured the amount we eat is smaller than the size of each seed.This fruit is popularity growing in South East Asia and to any tropical zone countries , it could be in rain forest area , in the backyard that become a scenery plant when bearing fruits and in low land areas that don't have constant water .It has different varities also, some are light red color and bloody red color too , there is yellow combination red color and light yellow color fruit.

I am happy even though I did not eat some during the season when hubby told that the first bearing fruit is for the kids to eat. It was a fruit festival for my three young teenagers.Norman and Rizah eat a lot compared to Yanyan because she is in Manila.Hubby has just sent her 5 kilos of lanzones and box of rambutan . Every morning Angkie(my adopted blue baby - now is okey, healed miraculously) is the first one picking up before they eat their and trunks that full of fruits are already touches the grassy ground.
