Thanks God "Labuyo" was gone away. "Labuyo" is the 12th typhoon that struck the Phililippines this year and the weather news said 'it was the strongest typhoon so far for this year'.
Left some provinces under state of calamity. Ripped countless roofs by it's strong wind, some houses swept by landslides and floods. Farms or plantations were destroyed, lot of trees and electrical poles knocked down ( more or less it will take 2 months to restore the electricity).
It's good that the gov't officials are ready for this kind of disaster. And people knows where to run to and protect themselves.Helps from some NGO's too come faster.
I always thankful to God that we're on the safer place, but because of the weather i've got sore throat and I don't want it to worsen. I have to do something and I thought of "Salabat" would be better than taking any medicine.
"Salabat" is hot ginger tea. It's so simple to prepare.
Peel, slice and pound the ginger and add water . Boil the concoction for several minutes, then add lemon slices and some honey or sugar, depending on your tastes.
Love the smell of ginger's spicy, minty aroma, and I feel a slight of relief when the warm drink slide down my throat.
Instant ginger powder are available in groceries too, but I like the fresh boiling crushed ginger concoction more.
Health Benefit of Ginger:
Relieve Menstrual Cramp
Treat Cold and Flu
Treat Morning Sickness
Reduce Pain and Inflammation
Treat Motion Sickness
Prevent Diabetic Nephropathy (Ginger can also be used to prevent kidney damage as a result of diabetes).
In a Science class, the teacher asked her students to give an example of things which are countless. One student answered: Water Another 1 answered: Sand And another one: Air The teacher noticed that everybody were participating except for one. She called his attention and asked the same question. The student stand up and answered:Blessings....
Have you ever count your blessings?
I bet you can't if you try because since your birth and every day of your life you're blessed by God with so many things. Foods, clothing, shelter, cash in ATM, & love of your family. When you woke up in the morning healthy, you're so blessed than those who suffered from uncurable illnesses and might not survive later.
Don't take for granted the uncounted blessings of life until they are removed from you.
Acknowledge God’s blessings simply by just saying.....
Ah... this post was never been published yet, it's been in my Chikara draft page since June 2009, now it's time to be out, ha ha... But some of my new Jenny dolls are not included here yet.
- a 10.5" inches fashion doll produced by a Japanese company - Takara,
since 1982. The doll was originally known as Takara Barbie, but became
"Jenny" in 1986 after Takara ended their licensing agreement with
Mattel. The difference between the Takara Barbie and the Western Barbie
was that Takara Barbie was altered to suit Japanese preference. Takara
Barbie is shorter, her eyes are round, the mouth is closed and the
doll's figure is less mature than the Western Barbie. Like Western
Barbie, Jenny wears a large variety of outfits which often include
street fashion, school uniforms and kimonos and other uniquely Japanese
costumes . Source: Wikipedia: Jenny Dolls
