Have Fun But Be Healthy

As part of Filipino culture, eating and merry-making are very common to us. We celebrate almost anything with friends and families from birthdays, graduation, feasts to funerals, weddings and baptisms.

You will normally see the dining table full of various viands. The people in the little counties will surely serve their "tuba" or coconut wine as their form of liquor. We previously tasted this as wine of the month since we go for social drinking. It is sweet and savory and the alcohol-effect takes longer than the commercial liquors.

The wine is quite distinguished from liquors since these are naturally made without the chemicals or other liquor ingredients. Study also show that they help your heart and reduce risks of brain disorders like Alzheimer's disease.

We can always have fun but it should not give us an excuse to exploit our health.
