Seaking Fresh Frozen Seafood

We used to eat out a lot but ever since I discovered Seaking's Fresh Frozen Seafood products, cooking at home is now easier. Prepping time is shorter because the boneless bangus are ready to cook straight from the pack. It's so convenient.

Seaking Boneless Milkfish Bangus Marinated Hot has been a staple in my weekly menu. I challenge myself to cook more for my family because it's healthier and well, cost-efficient too.

It's good to know that Seaking company has its own processing plant with a 20-ton per day capapcity in Malabon City. Fish are now sourced from accredited fish farms in Pangasinan. These farms required to have a BFAR Certificate for Good Aquaculture Practices to ensure environmental sustainability, animal welfare, and food safety.

Ayumi Ange Curl Lash + Resha Anti-Aging Spalia Gold Facial Experience

It's December and right now, I am swamped with invites to attend various parties and reunions with families and friends. Eeep... I need a makeover 😁

Ayumi Greenhills

Last Friday, I visited Ayumi (Greenhills) Japan Eyelash & Nail Art Salon located at the Mezzanine Level Unimart to avail of Ange Curl Lash and Resha's Anti-Aging Spalia Gold Facial.

I started my morning with a 60-minute relaxing facial treatment called Anti-Aging Spalia Gold Facial Php 1,800). Okay, calm down, the treatment doesn't involve pricking. If it does, I will not be even writing about it. I am blessed with a pimple-free skin but not a flawless one because I have freckles. But freckles are the least of my concern, I embrace them wholeheartedly.

Traveling to Indonesia | You Might Need a Polio Vaccine

What is Polio?

Polomyelitis (polio) is a highly infectious
 disease that is caused when a person is infected by the polio virus that invades the nervous system. Poliomyelitis can cause paralysis and even death. Polio vaccines are vaccines used to prevent poliomyelitis. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends all children be fully vaccinated with polio.

How Polio is Spread?
  • Lack of good hand washing practices
  • Contact with tiny amounts of feces (poop) of an infected person
  • Drinking water or eating food contaminated with infected feces
Signs & Symptoms of Polio
  • most people with polio do not feel sick
  • some people have only minor symptoms such as fever, tiredness, nausea, headache, nasal congestion, sore throat, cough, stiffness in the neck and back, and pain in the arms and legs
  • in rare case, polio infection causes permanent loss of muscle function (paralysis)
  • polio can be fatal if the muscles used for breathing are paralyzed or if there is an infection of the brain
Alert - Level 2 | Practiced Enhanced Precautions

We are traveling to Indonesia for leisure in December. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is a polio outbreak reported in Papua Province, Indonesia. CDC recommends that all people visiting Indonesia be fully vaccinated against polio. The current outbreak is caused by vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV), a sign of low oral polio vaccine coverage in the country.

What is Vaccine-Derived Polio?

Polio caused by a vaccine strain is called vaccine-derived polio. The oral polio vaccine (made from a weakened strain of the poliovirus) is given as drops in the mouth to protect against polio. This vaccine has been extremely effective in wiping out polio in developing countries, when most of the population get vaccinated.

How Vaccine-Derived Polio is Spread?

In areas where there are low rates of vaccination against polio and sanitation is poor, the weakened vaccine virus can spread from person to person. Over time, as the virus spreads, it can regain its ability to cause disease in people who are not vaccinated. 

Before traveling to Indonesia, adults who completed their routine polio vaccine series as children should receive a single, lifetime adult booster dose of polio vaccine. Although we are not staying there for more than 4 weeks, we opted to get vaccinated to be on the safe side.
