CHAPTER I
INTRODUCTION
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Most of the people nowadays are giving much priority on health and wellness of their well being. Proper exercise, adequate sleep and eating nutritious food and well balanced meal, fruits and vegetables are some of the basic correct practices in order to achieve healthy body and well being. However, it is a fact that having well balanced meal a day would require additional expenses and more time to cook and prepare the same. Thus, it would be very difficult for poor families to be able to serve nutritious meal in their dining table. Moreover, there is this perception of people that nutritious foods are not delicious food and ordinarily to some of them tasteless and not delicious to look at especially in the eyes of the children. That is why the goal of every parent in every household to serve appetizing and nutritious meal is always unachieved and has become an empty promise.
One way to address this problem is to choose a vegetable or fruit that is not costly, readily available and loaded with nutritional value. Cook or prepare it in such a way that it would look delicious and appetizing for children. In such a way, the children would enjoy the nutritional value and good taste of food.
One of the not so costly vegetable is Malunggay (Moringa oleifera). It is considered as “poor man’s vegetable” because it is cheap in price, could be found everywhere and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Aside from eating malunggay, it is also being used as main ingredient to fortify Filipinos’ staple food such as bread, noodles and other snacks. With the introduction of malunggay as ingredient in various forms of gastronomic preparation, people are now beginning to enjoy the presence of malunggay in our staple food and delicacies.
Even in the preparation of condiments which are popular among school children, malunggay can be...

The Comparison of the Two Movies of Jose Rizal

...Comparison of the two movies: Jose Rizal and Rizal sa Dapitan Jose Rizal is a three-hour epic on the life and struggles of poet and patriot Jose Rizal, the national hero and martyr of the Philippines, played by Cesar Montano. Directed by Marilou Diaz-Abaya, this is GMA Films’ entry to the 1998 Metro Manila Film Festival. It is considered as one of the biggest budgeted films in the Philippine movie history with a record of P80-million. This film was dubbed as the most spectacular and “controversial” Philippine film epic because of its record-breaking 80-million budget. The film won several prestigious awards and has also premiered at several well-known film festivals around the world including the Berlin International Film Festival in 1998 and has also won as the 2nd runner-up in the Audience Award of the Toronto Filmfest. The problem with Jose Rizal if that it concentrates on historical accuracy rather than artistic contribution. The film, as mentioned, is basically a history book adapted to film. My problem with this Rizal film is that the depth of this film’s Rizal is as much as the depth of Rizal you’d get from a high schooler’s Filipino textbook. However, there arealso negative comments that I must say about the movie. The plot was full of twists and turns. It is confusing to watch because of too many flashbacks and you couldn’t guess whether it is still in flashback or not. Also, some scenes are brutal, and some are not suitable for young kids such as the bed scene......

...JOSE RIZAL, the national hero of the Philippines and pride of the Malayan race, was born on June 19, 1861, in the town of Calamba, Laguna. He was the seventh child in a family of 11 children (2 boys and 9 girls). Both his parents were educated and belonged to distinguished families. His father, Francisco Mercado Rizal, an industrious farmer whom Rizal called "a model of fathers," came from Biñan, Laguna; while his mother, Teodora Alonzo y Quintos, a highly cultured and accomplished woman whom Rizal called "loving and prudent mother," was born in Meisic, Sta. Cruz, Manila. Jose Rizal’s Ancestors  He had Chinese blood from his father’s side and Spanish and Japanese blood from his mother’s side. Recent genealogical research even traces him to Lacan Dula (one of the chiefs met by the first Spaniards in Manila). His paternal ancestor was Lam-Co, an immigrant from Fujian (Jinjiang, Quanzhou), South China. At the age of 35, Lam-co was baptized in 1697. He became Domingo Lam-co. Lam-co had a distinguished lineage. He belonged to the Cua clan of south China. The Cuas today are prosperous and distinguished families in Asia. The Cuas are a very ancient line, which can be traced to many generations to the times when unified China was still non-existent. They are the descendants of Shu Du, the 5th son of Zhou Wu Wang, the political genius who started the Chou dynasty. It was 600 years later when his descendants formalized the usage of the surname Cai. Domingo Lam-co, Rizal’s......

Jose Rizal

...JOSE RIZAL JOSÉ PROTACIO RIZAL MERCADO Y ALONSO REALONDA (born 19 June 1861, Calamba, Philippines- died 30 December 1896, Manila, Philippines), patriot, physician and man of letters whose life and literary works were an inspiration to the Philippine nationalist movement. Rizal was the son of a prosperous landowner and sugar planter of Chinese-Filipino descent on the island of Luzon. His mother, Teodora Alonso, one of the most highly educated women in the Philippines at that time, exerted a powerful influence on his intellectual development. He was educated at the Ateneo de Manila and the University of Santo Tomas in Manila. In 1882, he went to study medicine and liberal arts at the University of Madrid. A brilliant student, he soon became the leader of the small community of Filipino students in Spain and committed himself to the reform of Spanish rule in his home country, though he never advocated Philippine independence. The chief enemy of reform, in his eyes, was not Spain, which was going through a profound revolution, but the Franciscan, Augustinian and Dominican friars who held the country in political and economic paralysis. Rizal continued his medical studies in Paris and Heidelberg. In 1886, he published his first novel in Spanish, Noli Me Tangere, a passionate exposure of the evils of the friars rule, comparable in its effect to Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin. A sequel,El Filibusterismo, 1891, established his reputation as the leading spokesman of......

Rizal Law

...EVOLUTION AND CONTEXT OF THE LAW Republic Act No. 1425, known as the Rizal Law, mandates all educational institutions in the Philippines to offer courses about José Rizal. The full name of the law is An Act to Include in the Curricula of All Public and Private Schools, Colleges and Universities Courses On the Life, Works and Writings of Jose Rizal, Particularly His Novels Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, Authorizing the Printing and Distribution Thereof, and for Other Purposes. The measure was strongly opposed by the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines due to the anti-clerical themes in Noli Me Tángere and El Filibusterismo. Senator Claro M. Recto was the main proponent of the Rizal Bill. He sought to sponsor the bill at Congress. However, this was met with stiff opposition from the Catholic Church. During the 1955 Senate election, the church charged Recto with being a communist and an anti-Catholic. After Recto's election, the Church continued to oppose the bill mandating the reading of Rizal's novels Noli Me Tángere and El Filibusterismo, claiming it would violate freedom of conscience and religion. In the campaign to oppose the Rizal bill, the Catholic Church urged its adherents to write to their congressmen and senators showing their opposition to the bill; later, it organized symposiums. In one of these symposiums, Fr. Jesus Cavanna argued that the novels belonged to the past and that teaching them would misrepresent current conditions. Radio......

...RIZAL SA DAPITAN The movie “Rizal sa Dapitan” shows Rizal’s life in exile in the said place before his execution. During his exile, he refused to just mope around and wait for his freedom. Instead, he made his exile in Dapitan very fruitful as much as possible. For fruitful leisure, he planted several kinds of plants, made an irrigation system, and sculpted. He offered free medicinal check-ups for the locals and even performed a surgery on his mother, blinded by a severe cataract, when she and Jose Rizal’s sisters left from Hong Kong to visit him. He became a local teacher or “maestro” for the young boys, offering free education for the less fortunate. And of course, like any other young man, he fell in love and got married to an Irish-American who came from Hong Kong to Dapitan, Josephine Bracken, who asked for help to cure her blind father. Towards the end of the movie, a fellow doctor and a member of the KKK, Pio Valenzuela, visited him to ask for advice on their planned “revolution”. But since the colony was not yet ready for a revolution, he just advised that the KKK should first stock up on armory and weapon through their rich fellow countrymen and train for battle. By watching the movie, I learned more on the life of our national hero. I was even able to establish the “good and bad” about our beloved Jose Rizal. For the “bad”, I can only think of one thing. During Josephine’s pregnancy, Jose Rizal’s sister, Maria, accused Josephine as a spy sent by the wicked......

Swot Analysis: Rizal Law

...ANALYSIS ON RIZAL LAW _____________________________ Presented to Dr. Estimada CAS Faculty In partial fulfilment of the Requirement of the Subject Rizal ______________________________ May 2014 Introduction In school, we students study the life and works of our national hero Jose P. Rizal. Our teachers taught us that the Calamba hero was born as the seventh of the children of Doña Teodora and Don Francisco. We can also remember how he pursued his studies until he was able to travel to different places and encountered different challenges. We can’t as well forget his two of his great works Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. And the event on how he died in Luneta is still in our memories as we observe Rizal Day on December 30 yearly. We Filipinos are until today educated about Dr. Rizal. One can possibly wonder why we are studying our national hero as a subject itself. It is simply because Rizal Course is mandated by law under Republic Act 1425 or known as Rizal Law. Many may not be familiar with this law. This act was before Senate Bill No. 438 written and sponsored by former Senator Claro M. Recto and then written by former Senator Jose P. Laurel as R.A. 1425. On the 12th day of June 1956, the bill was enacted. Rizal law is made up of six sections that can be conceptualized in the law’s three major provisions. First, it directs educational agencies to include in the curricula of all schools, colleges and universities, public or private, the study of the life......
