Apples, apples, apples! Apples are very known now a days, guess what? Last night we went to a dept. store nearby and we saw a lot of people buying a lot of apples. Then I remembered a friend of ours who told us just recently that we need to eat a lot of apples to be freed from H1N1 (swine flu) and take Vitamin C daily. That's why apples are in demand these days. Then hubby gave me a wink to buy apples too. I bought apple cider juice because our friend recommended us to buy this kind of healthy drink which he used to drink before. I can't bear the pain on my throat so we take time to buy. I had a sore throat after taking antibiotic last week when I was sick. My throat was swollen so I need an apple cider juice aside from the apple cider vinegar that our friend gave to us. Here are some health benefits from Apple Cider: * Apple Pectin * is a water-soluble fiber richly found in apples * Vitamin C * helps protect your body against free radicals and assist with the production of skin-nourishing collagen * Potassium* is abundant in apples and helps maintain pH balance and the right level of electrolytes *Calcium* helps strengthen bone and teeth structure I'm a health conscious person and as much as possible I will refrain from taking a lot of medicines so I need to eat or drink healthy food. When I read the benefits of apple cider I decided to take it and gave a try. I already drunk 2 packs and I felt good.

Watery Wednesday is up again, I love waters. Without water, people can't live longer. Without water those living in the rivers, seas and ocean might die, therefore water is very important to all living things above the earth or beneath the ocean. Every time we travel, my 6-year old will always take pictures when he saw water along the way. Sometimes he would tell me, Mama there's water, I'll take some pictures, and we all laugh at him. Glad to join this meme every Wednesday, it helps me keep going. Visit more posts here. They got fantastic views of today's meme.
Last night we went to a friend's house because we asked him for some apple cider vinegar to help ease my aching tonsilitis. It's good that they still have that kind of vinegar. It's quite expensive here in Thailand and I just need an ounce so we just ask from them. Then our friend told us that during their classes yesterday, a teacher found out that a student was not feeling well and the teacher discovered after asking the student that he visited another friend who was sick. Immediately the teacher send the student home and all of the teachers were already conscious that H1N1 is already in the city but the gov't is silent about some cases. Maybe because they don't want the people to panic or .... not sure and why? Then all the classes were stopped for a while and everybody cleaned their own rooms to avoid contamination. Another school was also having the same problem as what our friend told us... many students are not feeling well. And another friend told me today that there is a school that was closed for 3 days due to H1N1 cases. We went to a dept. store just this evening, and we brought with us something to cover our mouth. Only few people came and bought something, hubby noticed that only few are wearing masks and he said, I might conscious to wear it because we saw only few people are using. But I told him, he needs to wear it, "an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure". So it's better to be careful but in the end, we didn't wear it, lol! Because both of us were conscious of what others would see us. Then we decided to buy an alcohol, guess what? We could not find inside the store. We're saying, what's happening, why we could not find any, not even a small one? Then we went to another drugstore inside the dept. store, then the sales lady told us that "mai mei liew", that means no more stocks, oh boy, then we went to another drugstore and we're glad that they have a little bottle left, so we bought 2 small bottles just for our kids. I remember many years ago, when SARS was killing many around the globe, it was the same with H1N1. It was also pandemic and many lost their loved ones. But one thing for sure, amidst these circumstances and world turmoils we are safe in God's hands. Our lives are in His hands and no one could take it away from Him, our Almighty Father. He is our shield and defender. He is our Rock in whom we trust, no matter what happens... Thank you Father for being there for taking care of us!
