Taking Care of the Family with PHILCARE ER Vantage 80

The early part of 2016 has been a little hard and challenging for my family and I. That's also the reason for my hiatus but I'll share that on a different post soon. Anyway, the start of the year, my little boy got Acute Gastroentiritis due to some raw pork barbeque he ate during the holidays. He got confined and it was difficult for hubby and I as we did not have any yaya to stay with him in the hospital. We had to take some days off and be with him at the hospital. Good thing, he was able to come out of the sickness really quickly and I am super proud of my brave little boy. This February, it was my turn to get hospitalized, as I got Scarlet Fever after a trip in Davao. I am planning to share that with you too soon. (hihi, pending posts) Then now, just as soon as March entered, my hubby got injured while playing basketball so it meant another expense on medicine and therapy. I just still feel positive as the three of us are able to overcome our sickness. But, honestly speaking, whenever one of our family members get sick we can't be worried about
the expenses. Hospital bills, checkups, medicines and other related expenses hurts a family budget especially that they are immediate and unexpected. Especially for a family like mine where we only make ends meet every time, getting sick is really stressful. I think you'd agree with me that whenever someone gets sick it affects more than just the person's health or body but also their daily life in general. I had to take some days off at work, which meant no pay for the day to take care of my son. When I got scarlet I was advised by the doctor to be absent at work because it might infect my students. For a part timer like me, it really does affect my work, and my finances, and family life.

So in order to have a desired quality life for my family and I, it is important for me to make sure that we are all healthy and in case we get sick we are never worried where to get money to pay for it. With better health of the entire family, we can live our lives with full happiness and well-being. I'd like to think that with better health I can provide my child more opportunities for him to grow and develop.
 Fortunately, I have found out about PhilCare, a pioneer and recognized leader in HMO Philippines. As soon as I heard about it I got curious and excited about their prepaid cards that can be used for a year which can cover from 6 months to 64 years old individuals. The ER Vantage cards is PhilCare's contribution to meet Filipino families like mine's changing needs. They also have the same principle that I hold true for my family which is to be prepared for any medical emergency we can encounter.

Fool Proof Sinigang Recipe with AJI-SINIGANG® Cube

            My favorite Filipino food of all time is Sinigang. I love its sourness and how it makes me "kilig" every time I sip its soup and eat its veggies. Sinigang reminds me of our home in Bulacan and every weekend when we visit my parents, my father never fails to serve us with his specialty Sinigang. Though I love Sinigang I still am very picky on what kind of Sinigang I eat. There are some Sinigang that lacks that savory taste. That is why it is very important to have a flavoring and seasoning that will have that kilig and asin-linamnam taste that sinigang should have. Now here's something to fool proof your Sinigang everytime. Introducing AJI-SINIGANG® Cube Sinigang Soup.

        The Sour-Savory Goodness of the new AJI-SINIGANG® Cube Sinigang Soup is a ‘must’ in most Pinoy households’ weekly menu. The whole family enjoys a bowl of warm and refreshing Sinigang dish in hot or cold weather conditions. It has been observed though that most people using sinigang mixes available in the market would need to add other savory and meaty seasonings i.e. pork cube and all-in-one seasonings to achieve the ideal sinigang taste, which is not just about sourness but savory taste as well.

           The new Ajinomoto® Sinigang Cube is all that you will ever need to cook Sinigang with the preferred blend of sour-savory (asim-linamnam) taste. It is perfect in providing the balanced rich, savory deliciousness and appetizing sourness to any sinigang dish. Each cube is “ZoopSiksik™” because it is packed with the right level of tamarind sourness and savory taste from meaty extracts.

           AJI-SINIGANG® Cube is available in single 13g pillow pack cube for P5.00 and 8 pieces of 13g packed in re-sealable stand-up pouch for P38.00.
