“Senti Mode”


I’m on my senti mode the other day that I was able to compose this poem

WHY

Why do people hurt you?
Why do they lie?
Why do they say you have no right?
When they let you into their life.

Why do people love?
Why do they leave?
Why do they become sad?
When you want them to be happy with you all their life.

Why do they let you love them?
Why do you let them love you too?
Why do they leave you?
When you don’t want to leave them too.

why do people get hurt?
Why do they feel the pain?
Why do they fool you?
When they are supposed to be loving you.

Why do they make you cry?
Why do they take you for granted?
Why do they say goodbye?
When you don’t have the reasons why.

Why do people continue to love?
Why do they love to love?
Why do they long to be loved?
When you’re loving them too much.

I won 2 FREE CONCERT TICKETS from TICKETNET!!!


I join online promos or contests if I want to but I believed that I’m not that lucky when it comes to those things until this morning when Mr. Jose Bigornia, Creative Head of the Araneta Group, e-mailed me that I was chosen as the lucky TicketNet registrant of the month (July) and I won two (2) tickets to the AL JARREAU & GEORGE BENSON concert to be held on September 8 at the Big Dome. When I went to Ticketnet’s website, I even saw my name there displayed.

As far as I remember, I registered in Ticketnet a month ago. I saw the post of its promo in Boy Kuripot’s blog in http://boy-kuripot.blogspot.com. I was really surprised and happy that I was chosen and given free tickets. I’ll be enjoying this concert of jazz music from Al Jarreau & George Benson.

If you want to win tickets like I did, register at http://www.ticketnet.com.ph

Thanks Ticketnet!!!

Chowking Halu-Halo & Razon’s Halu-Halo


Chowking’s Halu-Halo

I love eating halu-halo because it’s very delicious and refreshing. I always eat halu-halo in Chowking. I really love the taste of their halu-halo. Try their Half Dozen halu-halo for the price of P29.

Since I love trying something new to eat, I tried eating halu-halo in Razon’s Robinson’s Manila. Razon’s is the pride of Guagua, Pampanga. It is known for it’s halu-halo and pansit luglug.

Razon’s Halu-Halo

Razon’s halu-halo really taste the same as Chowking’s halu-halo. Is Chowking getting their halu-halo from Razon’s? Even though both have the same taste, I can say that Chowking’s halu-halo taste even creamier and better than Razon’s because Chowking put more milk and other ingredients (nata de coco, banana, leche plan, ube, buko, etc.) making it more delicious. You can buy Razon’s halu-halo for P73.

DON’T EAT TOO MUCH RICE


The human body was never meant to consume rice! You see, our genes have hardly changed in more than 30,000 years. However, our food choices and lifestyle have changed dramatically. The caveman would hardly recognize our food or way of life.

Caveman food was never cooked as fire was not yet tamed. Thus, he ate only those foods that you can eat without treatment with or by fire. He ate fruits, vegetables, fish (sushi anyone?), eggs, nuts and meat. Yes, even meat. You can even eat meat raw if you were starving in the forest. You have the necessary enzymes to digest meat.

However, rice, like wheat and corn, cannot be eaten raw. It must be cooked. Even if you were starving i n the desert, you cannot eat rice in the raw form. This is because we do not have the system of enzymes to break rice down. You were never meant to eat rice. To make matters worse, you not only eat rice, but also make it the bulk of your food.

In some parts of Asia , rice forms up to 85% of the plate. Even if you take rice, keep it to a minimum. Remember, it is only for your tongue – not your body. Actually, rice and other grains like wheat and corn are actually worse than sugar. There are many reasons:

>>> Rice becomes sugar – lots of it.

This is a fact that no nutritionist can deny: rice is chemically no different from sugar. One bowl of cooked rice is the caloric equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar. This does not matter whether it is white, brown or herbal rice. Brown rice is richer in fibre, some B vitamins and minerals but it is still the caloric equal of 10 teaspoons of sugar. To get the same 10 teaspoons of sugar, you need to consume lots of kangkong – 10 bowls of it.


>>> Rice is digested to become sugar.

Rice cannot be digested before it is thoroughly cooked. However, when thoroughly cooked, it becomes sugar and spikes circulating blood sugar within half an hour – almost as quickly as it would if you took a sugar candy. Rice is very low in the “rainbow of anti-oxidants”

This complete anti-oxidant rainbow is necessary for the effective and safe utilization of sugar. Fruits come with a sugar called fructose. However, they are not empty calories as the fruit is packed with a whole host of other nutrients that help its proper assimilation and digestion.

  

 

>>> Rice has no fibre.

The fibre of the kangkong fills you up long before your blood sugar spikes. This is because the fibre bulks and fills up your stomach. Since white rice has no fibre, you end up eating lots of “calorie dense” food before you get filled up. Brown rice has more fibre but still the same amount of sugar.

>>> Rice is tasteless.

Sugar is sweet. There is only so much that you can eat at one sitting. How many teaspoons of sugar can you eat before you feel like throwing up? Could you imagine eating 10 teaspoons of sugar in one seating?

>>> Rice is always the main part of the meal.

While sugar may fill your dessert or sweeten your coffee, it will never be the main part of any meal. You could eat maybe two to three teaspoons of sugar at one meal. However, you could easily eat the equal value of two to three bowls (20 – 30 teaspoons) of sugar in one meal. I am always amused when I see someone eat sometimes five bowls of rice (equals 50 teaspoons of sugar) and then asks for tea tarik kurang manis! Are you a rice addict? Going rice-less may not be easy but you can go rice-less. Eating less rice could be lot easier than you think. Here are some strategies that you can pursue in your quest to eat less rice:

There is no real “built in” mechanism for us to prevent overeating of rice
How much kangkong can you eat? How much fried chicken can you eat? How much steamed fish can you eat? Think about that! In one seating, you cannot take lots of chicken, fish or cucumber, but you can take lots of rice. Eating rice causes you to eat more salt.

  

 

You tend to take more curry that has salt to help flavor rice. We also tend to consume more ketchup and soy sauce which are also rich in salt.

Eating rice causes you to drink less water. The more rice you eat, the less water you will drink as there is no mechanism to prevent the overeating of rice. Rice, wheat and corn come hidden in our daily food. As rice is tasteless, it tends to end up in other foods that substitute rice like rice flour, noodles and bread. We tend to eat the hidden forms which still get digested into sugar. Rice, even when cooked, is difficult to digest

Can’t eat raw rice? Try eating rice half cooked. Contrary to popular belief, rice is very difficult to digest. It is “heavy stuff”. If you have problems with digestion, try skipping rice for a few days. You will be amazed at how the problem will just go away.  

Rice prevents the absorption of several vitamins and minerals. Rice when taken in bulk will reduce the absorption of vital nutrients like zinc, iron and the B vitamins.

Eat less rice – Cut your rice by half. Barry Sears, author of the Zone Diet, advises “eating rice like spice”.

>>> Instead, increase your fruits and vegetables.

>>> Take more lean meats and fish.

You can even take more eggs and nuts. Have “riceless” meals. Take no rice or wheat at say, breakfast. Go for eggs instead.

>>> Go on “riceless” days.

Go “western” once a week. Take no rice and breads for one day every week. That can’t be too difficult. Appreciate the richness of your food. Go for taste, colors and smells. Make eating a culinary delight. Enjoy your food in the original flavors.

 

 

 

>>> Avoid the salt shaker or ketchup.

You will automatically eat less rice. Eat your fruit dessert before your meals. The fibre rich fruits will “bulk up” in your stomach. Thus, you will eat less rice and more fruits.
