It's More Gay in the Philippines!

In time with the new tagline for the Philippine tourism, "It's more fun in the Philippines", I have decided  to write what has been long overdue since this event happened during the Christmas holiday...when my kid attended his first Christmas party in Jollibee. He joined the Kid's Club that's why we got an invitation so I said to myself, "Sure, why not?" We just paid P200 which I think was a good deal because it included 2 meals, fun games and of course seeing the Jollibee mascot...which is the rockstar for all kids! 
Kids and even parents go crazy each time they see Jollibee (some even force their kids to have their pic taken with Jollibee even if the kid was scared and crying...tsk tsk). 
Now I am sure you are wondering why I entitled this blog "It's more gay in the Philippines"...well because Filipinos simply love gay people...I don't have anything against them since they are really fun to be with...but they are starting to invade everything even children's parties...seeing them dance so gayish would make kid's think that is more fun being gay so I would be gay too! I was glad that my kid did not react much seeing them dance...but I did cos I had fun watching the gay duo show their moves. LOL
 
All the gay dancing was fine with me but what I can't really stand is hearing Willie Revillame songs non-stop during break time and intermissions...it really drove me crazy! Kids would even sing along and dance to songs like "ikaw na lang" and "kendeng kendeng?" (I am sure you are wondering why I know his songs because I watch Wil Time Big Time sometimes but c'mon hearing them in a children's party???) I thought I would hear songs like "Twinkle, Twinkle" or "The Wheels on the Bus" which are more educational. 
Now game time! the staff asked for bigger kids first to join the contest and the gay guy asked my kid to join since he looked like he was already 5. I said he was just 3 but he still forced him to join (I'm not even sure if he heard me or bothered hearing what I got to say). Contestants have to hold their breath for a long time and say "Merry Christmas" as long as they can...since my kid did not understand the instructions that well because he was just 3 years old...he instead sang "Merry Christmas to you" and people laughed. I hope that did not cause any damage to my kid because I know that in some kids...they get insecurities and inferiority complex because they were ridiculed or embarrassed in front of many people. 
I was guilty of laughing because my kid was just so adorable! I just made him feel that what he did made people  laugh and that was cool. He made a comeback when he attended a swimming party recently by winning the game for saying "happy birthday" the longest...woohoo! proud of you baby!
 Warning: If you are a conservative parent and very strict in raising up your kid then don't bring him to a Jollibee party.

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Ingredients:

3 tomatoes chopped into medium pieces
1 white onion chopped into small pieces
2 salted red eggs (itlog na maalat/pula) ch…
