Heartwarming Mother’s Day Gift — Maligayang Araw ni Inay

A day before Mother’s Day, 10 May 2014, The Araw ni Inay — Tuli, Bunot, Bukol, & Blood Donation Mission gifted by Familia Mariñas & Friends for Antipoleños were a total success. The mission were also aided by groups of volunteers.

  • Tuli — Circumcision
  • Bunot — Dental Checkup and tooth extraction
  • Bukol — Benign Tumor check up and or surgery
  • Dugo ko Alay ko sa PGH — Blood donation for the Philippine General Hospital

The mission were dedicated to the late Mrs. Cristina “Inang Tinay” in honor of her kindness as a mother of the family and as a mother of the Antipoleños. Familia Mariñas has always been humble and giving as they always consider extending their help to the people of Antipolo City.

In behalf of all the beneficiaries of the surgical and dental mission, we sincerely thank and very much appreciate your constant kindness! — Happy Mother’s Day!

The Mission in Action

The mission took place at Cristimar Village, Basketball Court, Antipolo City and I was able to bring two of my nephews for circumcision. After the circumcision, a free medicine were also given (20 caps antibiotics, 10 caps pain relievers, a small bottle of betadine), enough until the wound gets well.

It is really a gift for us since circumcision may cost no less than a thousand pesos per individual as the same with tooth extraction.

Boiled Lady’s Fingers or Okra

Not by any scientific study, when taste buds are satiated to a particular taste, the tendency is to crave for other tastes. Try boiled okra dipped in fish sauce with siling labuyo to lower the level of your extravagant gustation.

Why crave for expensive dishes when you can satisfy your taste buds with cheaper ones. No offense to some people who just pretend that they do not like the slimy characteristics of okra, but I know that they themselves hate peoples that is pretentious therefore please refrain from being one.

Boiled okra dipped in fish sauce with siling labuyo matched with fried fish.

Okra is really gooey but you can lessen it by just adding to sour dishes like sinigang or paksiw or just dipping it on calamansi juice or vinegar with siling labuyo. The taste is really sweet as the same with most vegetable and it do not have an aftertaste.

Lady’s fingers or okra has and always been recommended nutritious food ever since.

I wonder why some Antipoleños still have malnutrition problems since it is one of the cheapest vegetable on the market and it is very easy to grow. Okra is cheap and available in all seasons. You can actually grow an okra plants in a pot.

My friend Arnel has a small plot of okra and eggplant just beside their house in Gloria Heights and he could even share the vegetables to the neighbors. Instead of planting that medicinal marijuana which is still illegal in the Philippines, plant okra to stay healthy.

Why Okra?

Okra is rich in Vitamin C, Folate, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Niacin, Thiamin, Vitamin B6, Magnesium, Manganese, Beta Carotene, Lutein, Zeaxanthin. Wow,  a very promising vegetable that is also rich in antioxidants.
