How to Get the Best Wedding Dress

A wedding dress represents culture, tradition, and religion. One of the highlights of a wedding is the bride's wedding gown. A wedding dress depicts emotions from the people who will be witnessing the ceremony, a mixture of happiness, delight, enjoyments, bliss, and somehow a fairy tale event that they will be witnessing. 

Wedding dresses can be decided by the bride itself or with the help of the family members, sometimes tradition such as handing over the wedding dress of a family member such as the mother of the bride that was used years ago as a token or an heirloom; wedding gowns and dresses can be rented just for the occasion itself; most of the time a wedding gown is custom made, cut and fitted only for the bride. Wedding gowns vary from design, color, style, and material. If you have the budget to splurge on a wedding gown you can go as lavish as you want. Some and few go for the practical side for a simple yet elegant looking gown. 

There are a lot of ways to get the best wedding dress of your dreams, you can go by scouting stores in the mall for ready-made gowns and make alterations later on. There are lots of physical stores you can get that specific wedding dress you need. Also, going online and ordering online is an option too. It will save you time and money when you compared it. You can also get the best wedding bridesmaids dresses online! You can have time with the ladies in your entourage when choosing online. 

Here are some examples I find online for wedding dresses and veils to bridesmaid's dresses:

Weddings are celebrated all year round, whether your a June or December bride preparing for your wedding ahead of time can give you that best and satisfying results on your wedding day, besides the bride normally has the last and final say on there wedding. Do you agree?

Enjoy and best wishes to you!

Do You Fall Into #MalnutritionTraps?

The country has been facing a rise in the number of underweight and overweight Filipinos for more than 20 years. The World Health Organization (WHO) defined this phenomenon as the “Double Burden of Malnutrition” or the “prevalence of both undernutrition and overweight in the same community, nation, or region.”

To address this problem, our government launched the Pinggang Pinoy® campaign in 2014. Pinggang Pinoy® is an easy-to-understand food guide showing proper food group portioning on a per-meal basis. This reflects the principles of MOderation, VAriety, and BAlance (MOVABA) to promote healthier eating habits.

Solving the Philippines’ Double Burden of Malnutrition should be a collaborative effort between the public and private sectors as it is not an easy feat. With this, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation partnered with government agencies to conduct education programs to raise awareness and promote the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® in malnutrition hotspots, where incidences of Double Burden Malnutrition are high. This training was given to homemakers/mothers who have malnourished (underweight, stunting, wasting, overweight and obese) school-aged children.

The pilot run resulted in improvements in the knowledge & attitudes of households related to the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® within target areas. However, behavior changes towards healthier eating habits remain to be a challenge. The program uncovered a number #MalnutritionTraps that some Pinoy households easily fall into. The following #MalnutritionTraps provide a picture of how unhealthy eating habits may lead to Double Burden of Malnutrition:

1. Overconsumption of carbohydrates: Voracious rice eaters can easily fill half of their plates with rice. Others have pandesal & noodles as regular meal deprived of other nutrients derived from a well-balanced meal.

2. Underconsumption of vegetables and/fruits: It is common for some to be content with rice & meat to satisfy their hunger and skip/take an insufficient amount of vegetables/fruits. Fact is, the variety of colors found in Glow foods are important sources of vitamins & minerals to sustain our energy & keep us from getting sick.

3. Overconsumption of protein: Typical Filipino “SILOG” meals include a double serving of proteins (e.g. Tapa+Itlog, Tocino+Itlog, Longanisa+Itlog, Bangus+Itlog). Eating different kinds of protein is fine for as long as they are taken in moderation. We must also avoid protein dishes served high in fat, cholesterol, and sodium.

More stories about #MalnutritionTraps can be referenced from these documentary videos:

“Puro Carbs”

“Breakfast Skipper”

“Kulang sa Protina”

“Pamilya Unlirice"

To help Filipinos break free from #MalnutritionTraps, Ajinomoto’s Culinary Nutrition Team prepared Healthy & Delicious Pinggang Pinoy® Recipes, downloadable through Busy and budget-restricted homemakers will also find these Pinggang Pinoy® recipes useful because all are easy-to-do and affordable (P250/day for a family of 5).
