Ideas for Kid's Packed Lunch to School

School has been ongoing formore than a month now and I feel a little guilty about the packed lunch I prepare for my kids to school.  It has most often been rice meals with fried or processed foods like fried chicken, chicken nuggets, fried fish fillet, hotdog or longganiza.  Though sometimes, I prepare sauteed vegetables together with the fried items, and at times I prepare spaghetti or adobo.

I need some new packed lunch ideas or dishes which are easy to prepare and cook (because my mornings are time pressured); not quickly perishable (because they bring it to school in the morning so it has to be safe to eat until lunch); budget friendly ( I have 4 kids going to school so it should be cost friendly); and of course healthy meals to sustain my active kids.

I used Google search and one of the top sites that came up Home Packed Lunches Your Kids Will Eat offers 2 sets of 5 day packed lunch menu.  The other site Lunch Box Ideas also gives a variety of healthy options for preparing packed lunches like tortilla/wraps/burritos, burgers, pizza, pasta based meals.  Hmmm....I think I need to take cookery classes which is actually not a bad idea at all.

I need to find a cookery school  like Seasoned Courses in our place where I can learn basic cooking and practical skills of preparing food in a variety of food groups like meat, fish, poultry, vegetables and pasta.  It's good that they have 1-3 days cookery courses, perfect for busy moms like me.  They also say that with their courses, "you will learn how to make good, tasty food with minimal cost, fuss and time - so you can prioritise other things!"  That is simply what I'm looking for.

I actually have been wanting to take short course cooking lessons for a long time.  I'm thinking not only using it for preparing for my kids' meals but also it can blossom into a home-based business.  I've read of an inspiring story about a mom who instead of just preparing packed lunches for her kids, ended up preparing packed lunches for other kids in her child's school.  That is a profitable idea, isn't it?

Anyway, for now let me just share this video with cool packed school lunch ideas.  Hope this post was helpful.

Processed foods are really unhealthy. Try to avoid that if possible. Home-cooked meal can be as quick as 30 mins to prepare.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
