Malunggay (moringa) for Expecting and Breastfeeding Moms

Have you heard about malunggay powder or malunggay flakes? Do you know how to use any of these?

As we all know malunggay is very useful for pregnant women to avoid anemia and other blood related problems. Lack of iron for expecting moms can cause blood related diseases not only to the mother but also with your baby and worst you might lost your baby.

One good source of iron is malunggay. Pero nakakasawa naman yata kung araw-araw na lang ay may dahon ng malunggay sa pagkain naten diba? That's why I suggest malunggay powder. You can use it in all dishes without affecting the presentation of the dish, dahil hindi naman visible yong powder sa food. Apart from that, you can also use malunggay powder as tea. It can be dissolved in water since it is powdered.

Malunggay powder only cost Php700 per kilo and it can last for 2 years if proper storage is practice. Avoid contamination and exposure in direct sunlight. Do not use wet spoon when scooping it and make sure that the jar you used to store the malunggay powder is tightly close.

On the other hand, for moms who loves to bake, you may also use malunggay flakes for your bread or cake. Actually you may use both depending on your preference. If you want malunggay very visible in the bread or cake, you may use flakes since it is cracked leaves only unlike powder, it can mixed with other powdered ingredients.

How we planned for Sundae's Baptism

I have fun planning for my Sundae's baptism. Choosing the ninongs and ninangs was never hard because they volunteered already. I listed everyone who said they wanted to be her ninong/ninang even if they can't make it on the day of the baptism. She has 12 ninangs and 9 ninongs. My sister-in-law is the primary ninang and my husband's childhood friend was the primary ninong.

Secondary ninang are my youngest sister-Angie, my sister-in-law-Lovely (2nd sibling of the family), my mountaineer friend-Anna, who wasn't there since she's in Singapore, my college friend-Chloe, my housemate-Vhel, my closest workmate-Ivy, my chidlhood friend-Maricar who wasn't there as well, she's in KSA, my husband's cousin, Aimee, my bestfriend-Roxan, and elementary friends Roxanne and Apple who weren't able to make since they are out of the country.

Secondary ninong are my husbands eldest brother-Mark Gil, cousins-Andreo, Ydezzer and Raul, college closest friend-Jherald and William, former workmate-Nelson and my cousin Chrison.

In church we paid P500 for the baptism regular schedule, and P20 per head of secondary ninong and ninang.

Reception was held at Chowking-Remar, along Aurora Blvd. in front of Gateway Mall. We ordered 50 Oriental Chicken Lauriat which is Php155 per plate for total of Php7,750 and a personalize Red Ribbon mocha cake for Php960.

Invitation was designed by my officemate, Anj, as well as the cake and souvenir. We spent, Php700 for the acrylic blank keychain, 100 pcs. Invitation printing cost Php6 at Picture City who has 10+3 promo. I printed 10 each design plus the promo total of 26. Invitation cost less since there is Facebook, I only gave invitation to the ninong and ninang for souvenir as well :).

Souvenir print cost Php150 each for an 8R photo paper size with 64 prints each page. That makes 64 keychains only. Total printing costs P510.

Her souvenir

These are her invitation, printed with two different pictures.

Welcome to the Christian world my Sundae!
Marcella Sundae or my Sundae was baptized on October 30, 2011 at the Transfiguration of our Lord Parish. It was a success, after the long planning time! I've been longing to have her baptized since she was 4 months, but my eldest brother was not here so I waited for him to get back home. I wanted my brother to here since I want every member of my family to witness it. Thank God he made it on the 27th of October. He was expecting his flight home on the 2nd of November.

And now I'm planning for her 1st birthday on New Year - January 1. I'm open for suggestions-souvenirs, program, etc! Please post it here.
