2018 Week 23: Nutrition Farming Seminar

June 4-10, 2018

I registered my auntie and I to a Nutrition Farming seminar offered by Agribusiness. I saw their advert in FB. The seminar was last June 9, 2018.

Initially, the seminar is inclusive of a farm tour in Cabanatuan. However, days prior June 9, I was informed that there will no longer be a farm tour because the plants have already been harvested and there was nothing to see. I hesitated at first but still checked with my aunt if she’s still interested even if without the farm tour. I just wanted to make sure because she’ll be travelling to Manila from Atok Benguet just for that.

It was a good decision to still attend because we learned a lot! Sulit ang Php 1,500.00. The funniest was that the speakers frequently go to Atok Benguet for talks. The venue is just 4 kilometers away from my auntie’s home hahahaha! But she said she never heard about them. Also, one of the speakers’ host is my auntie’s batchmate hehehe.

The main speaker is Ka Maning who is known to be the father of nutrition farming. With him is his son JR and , another consultant.

There were only a few of us. I had the chance to talk to a farmer from Dumaguete. He travelled to Manila just for that.

Another young participant is a haciendero from Sariyaya Quezon. They have a vast property there (as in by the hectares). They don’t have farm tours at this point but they’re planning to have one in the future. In fairness, cutie si haciendero hahahahahaha.

One other girl participant was from Bulacan. They have a rice field which they want to convert into a farm and she wants to learn some techniques on how to go about it.

The other girl is from Batanes! She wants to have a farm there because vegetables are so expensive in their place because of transport.

There were I think 15-20 participants all eager to learn. We finished at around 4 PM.

Thanks to that seminar, we were able to get a shop’s name in Cubao that sells seedlings. I’ll check it out one of these days to compare prices.

My auntie and I went to Quezon City Memorial Circle to check out the plants. Unfortunately, the area we went to last year was already closed due to the MRT construction. The shops have been dispersed in several parts of the area. And there are fewer shops now and since it was raining, most shops were closed.

On to dinner! We were supposed to eat at Romantic Baboy in Tomas Morato. However, the line was long so we just went to Megamall to feast at Vikings hehe. That’s my belated Mother’s Day and advance birthday treat for my auntie. Sabay na para tipid hahahaha.

The rain that night was crazy strong! But happy tummy so it offsets the inconvenience of walking through the strong rain just to get home hehe.

The end.

2017 Week 6: Chillax Weekend

February 6-12, 2017

Work

Other than the same things, I celebrated my 14th work anniversary last February 10. My gosh, 14 years. But thank you, Lord.

Weekend

A friend and I were supposed to go to The Plant & Garden Show at the QC Memorial Circle last Saturday but she had some take home work so we cancelled. I just stayed home and did some domestic chores. Some only, not all, and those that need to be done, like laundry. The rest can wait hahaha.

I also brought out my cross stitch project which I put at the back of the cabinet for years! I felt a little guilty for not diligently working on it but I’m glad I brought it out once again because I was inspired to continue doing it when I saw that I was almost done with one page of the pattern. I’m doing The Last Supper though, and it’s big so good luck to me. I’ll hang this in my hallway in Baguio. My next project is the Banaue Rice Terraces, also to be displayed in Baguio hehehe. I bought the materials years ago…and I hope to complete everything at least 1-2 years from now. Di rin kasi talaga biro ang magcross stitch sa totoo lang. And of course, kailangan din ipahinga ang mata.

After mass on Sunday, I went to the mall for some window shopping. Yung totoo talaga, gusto ko lang maglakad-lakad. Maiba naman kesa nakakulong sa bahay. Plus, I needed to buy some grocery and what else, DMC thread hehehe.

When I got tired malling, I went home and did some more cross stitching while occassionally watching TV.

Oooppsss, I would also like to share this. A friend shared it in FB. I’m interested in Poulty Production and Processing. Maraming nagsusulputang kainan kasi. For sure kailangan nila ng mga manok! Tik tik tilaok! :p

AgriSeminar

Enroll na!

I will inquire and share it here kung anuman ang nalaman ko.

The end.

Have a great week ahead.
