Yogurt

Not sure if you would agree but I find that yogurt is really healthy. It's good eaten alone, with fruit or as a salad dressing. I'd like to share the recipe with you.

In a pot, heat 1 liter of milk until just warm. Dissolve 3 tablespoons plain yogurt and 1 tablespoon of sugar. cover and keep inside the oven or in any warm, dark place for about 10 hours.

Milk can be either liquid or powder. When using powder, reconstitute it with 3 cups water to 1 cup milk proportions. I use the High Calcium, Low Fat Monami Milk. So far, it has yielded the best tasting yogurt.

Sugar can be omitted if you are on a diet. I added it to the recipe to let the bacteria grow faster. I remember that technique from breadmaking.

So, there you are. Happy eating!

Kumon and my Daughter

Remember my older post about Kumon? So far it has done great wonders for my daughter. She is now one of those people who are being trained to take the MTAP Math competition sponsored by MetroBank. It was a tough elimination since she goes to a school of scholars. And to think that she sort of hated the subject before. Now she professes her love for it because it, according to her, is so easy. Well, like I always say, the down side is the lack of analytical thinking. I'm now trying to check on ENOPI. My friend says it's a good Math school. She teaches there, so what can I expect?

SeaMed Review Center

I've just recently taken the nursing board exam. It was not quite easy but not quite hard either. Although I can't say I studied hard for it, it was a good thing I studied on burns, perioperative techniques, and emergency nursing. The nursing board are really trying to be sure that when an emergency situation comes, the pinoy nurse will know what to do.

For those who would be taking the philippine board, I'd like to recommend the SeaMed Review Center. Sir Mark Asuncion (he's kwenek to us reviewees), Dr. Malvar, Sir Laboy and Sir Villegas are the best reviewers. The downside is that the review takes only 4 hours but those 4 hours are really worth it. The rationale is that you will take home the tests so you can answer and study them and they will give you the same test the following day which you can do at a faster rate because you're already familiar with it. Makes sense. They have a computer room where you can review too until 5 pm. In case you don't want to go through the trouble of lining up at the PRC, you can ask them to file your application for the NLE with them for a fee. I paid 1,500 php. Don't worry, they're legit. If you want to go to PRC yourself, that's fine too.

By the way, SeaMed is located at 867 G. Tolentino St. Sampaloc, Manila. tel # 735-2579. It is just actually almost at the corner of Tolentino and Quezon Boulevard, just about 2 corners before reaching the corner of PRC. They are next door neighbors of Pentagon and Carl Balita's Review Center.
