TSA Locks

More expensive bags and luggage right now, like Samsonite luggage, all sport TSA locks which supposedly makes securing your luggage easier. Supposedly also, it's a durable, secure locking system.

However, my husband's recent trip to Malaysia proved that such locks are really easy to pick. Unfortunately for him, he also forgot that his media player was in the luggage so he lost it.

So although TSA locks are easy to use, lock and open, make sure you also hand carry your valuables. You can also secure your luggage by shutting the zips together with plastic locks.

Delimondo Corned Beef

I have heard of Delimondo Corned Beef for a while now but since I am not really a fan of corned beef, I never cared to sample it. I also haven't been to the Legazpi Sunday Market where such is sold.

But then a classmate brought some in our FSL class and decided to give me a can because I haven't tried it. I prepared it with a potato, chopped, and some onions. And it was really, really tasty. Really quite different from the usual corned beef. It also comes with a lot of its own oil (which could prove a bummer if you used plastic dining ware) so you need not add anymore when you're heating it. It's really very delicious. One can if good for 2-4 people (depending on whether you have anything else to eat with it, and how much you eat of it). Perfect for both rice and bread!

If you cannot wait for the Sunday Market, you can purchase these from Petra and Pilar, at Chinos Roces Ave. cor. Exportbank Drive, Makati.

Anvil Publishing Book Sale

Anvil Publishing is helping parents on a budget come up with cool Christmas gifts with its ongoing Book Sale. Friends have already bagged P5 Archie Comics and stocks are replenished every few days. Make sure you drop by, November 17 to December 12, Mondays to Saturdays (8 a.m. to 9 p.m.).

New Year Check-up

One of the things people should really be scheduling, or including in their New Year's resolutions, is getting a check-up come January. Especiallly for people abroad who feasted during Thanksgiving and then the Holidays. Most probably, everyone let go of diets and control and partook of freshly-baked cookies and bread, steaming mugs of cocoa or sinful orders of frappes, dessert upon dessert from the Christmas table, stuffings and turkey and pumpkin pie, and all the fruit cake and candies we can get our hands on.

A check up in January will give you the reality check of how much you slipped, or what needs work, or just to assure you that you are not the worse for wear. Better safe than sorry, right? So maximize your Blue Advantage and schedule those check ups and doctor visits as early as now. At most, your teeth will require cleaning anyway.

Immunity Foundation

Wikipedia defines Immunity as "a biological term that describes a state of having sufficient biological defenses to avoid infection, disease, or other unwanted biological invasion."

Every parent hopes for a healthy child, one that will not get sick at every change of environment or temperature. Aside from the cost of the check-ups and medicines, expense that could have been more happily spent buying a new book or a trip, illness in the family disrupts routines and exhausts family members, especially if the sick one is a child.

So how can parents build a great immunity foundation for their own children?

Everything starts with the root. Parents who lead healthy lifestyles and eat healthy meals are more likely to produce healthier offspring. A healthy mom is less likely to have pregnancy complications and difficulties, and the baby is also more likely to be term and just the right size at birth.

Mothers should also breastfeed their child exclusively for the first six months and to continue breastfeeding up to two years and beyond. This way, not only does a mother provide her infant with nutrition in perfect proportions but she also passes on her antibodies to her child. Breast milk also provides probiotics to the baby which can be very crucial in protecting her once she reaches an age wherein she puts everything in her mouth. Breastfeeding also limits the possibility of an infant getting diarrhea from non-sterile feeding equipment and water. What's more, an infant does not get exposed to processed cow's milk in formula, which contains hormones and other possible contaminants from all the handling and storage.

Once a child is already ready for solids, pureed vegetables and fruits are the way to go. Providing only healthy options for babies will raise them eating right. Do not make processed food, junk food and fast food so readily available at home. And when you do go to fast food joints, always order the healthier options. Get rice and viand instead of french fries (which may be potato but has very high sodium content).

For school age kids, prepare snacks and baons ahead of time for easy reheating and packing in the morning. Make your own chicken nuggets and pork balls instead of buying them to make sure there are no artificial seasonings. Extend fried meat favorites with vegetables, or make empanadas instead. Provide variety so the child is more likely to eat. Take a leaf from bento boxes, put something of everything good for each meal. So for lunch, pack a golf-sized ball of rice, some vegetable strips, a hard-boiled egg, 2-3 chicken nuggets and a banana. The next day, pack a tuna sandwich, apple and milk instead.

Providing the proper nutrition is just one factor of Immunity Foundation. Lifestyle is equally important as well. Babies need all the sleep they need and kids should not be driven to and fro so many activities day in and out. It is important that routines are established so they get adequate rest and sleep during the day. It is also very important that they engage in activity daily. Play should involve movement. Being exposed outdoors, to some sun and fresh air, is imperative.

It is also very important that you work with a pediatrician you trust who will advise you lengthily about your son's nutrition, development and vaccination. Do all this and your child will be set on the right track and there would be less worries and possible heartaches in future.

The Better Investment

Not everyone will be blessed with a Christmas bonus but at least, most people who are working will get 13th month pay as mandated by law. And though many malls and bazaars are doing a great job inspiring us to buy and buy and buy, let us all make sure that part of the money we get will go to better investments, samples of which include:

1) Insurance - go over the insurance quote that was already given you by your agent for your home, car or your kids' education. You may not be able to start payments on everything but you can at least make an informed choice on what to prioritize.

2) Car - change your tires, clean your air conditioning, check break/clutch fluid, install shocks, etc. It may seem pointless if the car is running fine right now but investing in your car is investing in you, and your family's safety so don't skip it.

3) Health - apart from a health plan, have that executive check-up you need or start paying more for healthier items (like whole-grain breads and fresh cow's milk). Also add important supplements like Vitamin C and Fish Oil in your daily routine and buy the running shoes that you need to help you exercise.

4) Family - it does not have to be a grand trip but maybe an overnight camping trip at a nearby lake will do you good. Maybe family games or a new set of something (books, perhaps) can facilitate bonding times and communication in your home. Maybe an extra bathroom is really, really important already.

5) Savings - always save something for rainy days and emergencies. If luck is on your side, this may just pay for a luxury in future but if not, at least you need not be borrowing money or pawning stuff.

When you know what your priorities are, you will know how to stretch whatever money you receive as bonus. So remind yourself asap on what you should be investing in... and if you notice, all these actually spell 'peace of mind'.

Tres Reyes - Melchor Island

Melchor Island is the nearest to mainland Marinduque of the Tres Reyes group of islands. Plus, they say that the other two (Gaspar and Balthazar) aren't really conducive for docking.

Melchor offers crushed corals as sand. In front, there are cottages for rent and a thriving community of locals. Marinduque waters is clean and perfect for swimming. However, there is a strong current in the waters in front of Melchor so visitors are always advised not to go too far. It offers a view of mainland Marinduque, Malindig Volcano and farther in the horizon, Elephant Island.

Boatmen and guides usually bring guests to the back of Melchor, where a cove of sorts offers shade and privacy to swimmers. The waters here is also more conducive to swimming and snorkelling.

Aristocrat's Chicken BBQ

There is now Reyes Barbeque and Casa Reyes Resraurant but the original restaurant, Aristocrat, continues to cater to old-time patrons and new, younger clientele. It also helps that the restaurant has expanded and opened up branches in major malls now, bringing their fare not just to Manila-based residents but to other places as well (my SIL first enjoyed Aristocrat in a mall in Pampanga).

The most popular food order remains to be the chicken barbecue. I still don't know why one order includes three chicken pieces but nobody did say you cannot share. Plus, Aristocrat offers good food at affordable prices.

And do check out their bakeshop. I highly recommend the TORTA DE LOS REYES which is like chocolate sans rival in a purely sinful and yet heavenly way.

Season for Colds

Why is it that when the Christmas Season approaches, people also start going down with the colds? Ear infections, pneumonia and allergy is also prevalent nowadays.

The only real defense is to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle. Enough rest and sleep and stress management is key.

Fortifying yourself with Vitamin C or malunggay capsules will also help. For the highly allergic, maybe some antibodies shots is called for. Also, you may have to change your humidifier filters and get your air conditioning units cleaned.

But do enjoy the outdoors. Staying inside does not really help colds and allergies. Do avoid crowds though as much as you can while you're still down so you won't catch more opportunistic infections.

Becky's Kitchen

It was a long while since we bought anything from Becky's. I guess it didn't help that I started baking with my in-laws plus I've already gone on several Becky binges in the past.

But anyway, we revisited their cakes again. I was super surprised that their POTATO ALMOND KRUNCH (their best cake ever ever!!!) already cost P525. But it still tastes every bit of heaven so I can forgive the price hike. I guess since they only have two stores anyway, they'd rather increase their prices and trust their faithful patrons to grin and bear it, rather than sacrifice proportions and ingredients.

Becky's cakes (and their brownies, for sure) are not exactly new york vacations but I can vouch for the gustatory delight they bring.

Doña Salud Resort

Doña Salud Private Hotsrping Resort is located in Pansol, Calamba, Laguna. It was recommended by a friend so we arranged to celebrate our birthday there with our immediate family.

Generally, we were happy with the resort. We stayed at Villa Flor (which can be rented for 24 hours for P10,000). It has three bedrooms (one of which is the master's) with their bathrooms. There are also two shower rooms and a CR outside, near the pool. There is a billiards table (which we didn't use), a videoke (which we didn't use much), dining area and kitchen.

Rent for use of the gas range is P200 while additional beds cost P100/ea. Blankets are not provided but could be rented for P50. All beds in the bedrooms have trundle beds under so the place can really accommodate groups of people as big as 20-30.

The map to the place could have been better, but anyway, all one has to do is watch out for the Binalot restaurant after the public school (at your right, if you're coming from Calamba Crossing). The entrance to Solemar Subdivision is just right across Binalot.

The aircons were working super fine, it was cold. There's a spotlight on the pool at night. There are no TVs in the rooms though. There is a grill area and they even provide the tongs. The master's bedroom is nearest the kitchen and videoke/dining area. Surprisingly also, we weren't bugged by mosquitoes and flies so everybody really had fun being outdoors.

The 4-bedroom villas cost P16k for overnight (and P18k during December). There is a room not within any villa that could be rented for P1k that's also air conditioned.

All in all, we were really satisfied and the staff were very accommodating and responsive too.

Five Pounds Target

How overweight are you?

I am twenty-five pounds over my weight limit for my height, and thirty-five pounds over my ideal weight. That is already a staggering amount of weight to lose and the more intimidated I feel, the more I don't start moving.

Sure, some weight loss supplement can probably help but since I am still breastfeeding, that's not really an option right now. Plus, you always want to change your lifestyle and not just your appearance, if you are to feel good about yourself.

Am trying the FIVE POUNDS TARGET. I will resolve to lose five pounds healthily. Just five pounds. I will still be overweight then but I also know i'd feel the difference. Hopefully, the baby targets will help me ultimately get back to a healthy weight. And at least, this way, I don't feel like it's impossible.

Google Wave

Many people are probably wondering why there are so many alerting them for invites to Google Wave or celebrating that they finally have a Wave account. More are hankering for invites.

Here is a great guide on getting started on Google Wave. Essentially, it's the next generation e-mail that's not quite e-mail, and live chat that's not quite just chat. It's e-mail people can edit in real time, attach videos to, and only one copy gets retained. I have yet to really explore all it can offer and once the Almighty Google has fixed all its bugs, they say that it will make Facebook and Plurk and Twitter obsolete.

FPPF Wedding Photography Workshop

Manong's is located at the Filinvest area, near a driving range. It can pass for a semi-fine dining restaurant if you sit indoors, but I think it's more known as a Dencio's type of dining place where you eat sisig and drink and allow yourself to be noisy and smoke.

The prices are Dencio's, Gerry's Grill range. I didn't appreciate much the california maki we ordered because it had too much rice but the tokwa't-baboy was good. I loved the gravy on their sizzling bangus belly and I appreciated the free soup they gave (we had to ask for them though, for my son).

Oh, I also didn't like their sago't gulaman because it was a tad too sweet (and they were overzealous with their flavoring).

They have this garden area that's lit at night, with a bridge going there and a bench on the bridge, perfect for talks over drinks.

Generally, it's still a good place to eat if you're in the area. And I guess it's a blessing that the food there isn't so good that you'll need to hit the dip bar after. And the staff were very friendly and accommodating too.
