Kraft Cheez Whiz Palamantasan Revolutionizes Proper Nutrition

A screenshot of Palamantasan website, http://www.palamantasan.com

I remember when I was in Elementary, every during the month of June, our teachers used to collect 5 pesos from each of their students and this did not exclude me and what is the purpose? To buy ingredients and other cooking requirements for a Sospas (rice porridge with chicken meat). Actually, this is how public schools celebrated or culminated the Nutrition month of June. This is not new since this is common to Philippine schools most especially in barrio or rural areas. It is nice to hear the good news that Nutrition advocacy has step up in different level through the help of Kraft Cheez Whiz Palamantasan.

Last Saturday, July 17, 2010 was a not-to-be forgotten event for a Cebu blogger like me. I attended the Kraft Cheez Whiz Palamantasan School Eliminations. It was more than a Nutrition Month activity, I witnessed group of talented kids, students who are competing for some contest categories such as Jarchitecture, Essay writing, Cheering Competition and Sabayang Pagbigkas which basically give opportunities to students in showcasing their skills and intelligence. But how can a Filipino graders enjoy and proudly present their abilities if in the first place, they are lack in proper Nutrition?

That is why Kraft Cheez Whiz, one of the most-loved cheese brands in the country in partnership with the Department of Education has come up with Palamantasan–the first interschool competition among grade school students nationwide in a quest for nutrition education. In Lapu-lapu Central Elementary School, trough the help of Kraft Cheez Whiz dubbed as Palamantasan ng Sarap, successfully discovered the talents that Cebuano kids had as they awarded the winners of the specified contests.

Fun Starts at School, My Idea of Fun

What is your IDEA of FUN? A question that entails a meaningful story

When I was in grade school, our teacher told us a story about this teenager and it started with a line “I’m happy, I am now 10 and 5…”. After that, she asked us, how old is the main character of the story, and some of us answered 10 while others said 5, but it’s actually 15. A group of my classmates amazed and asked how come they didn’t notice it. But for me, I had hard time thinking how old really is the character…this phase of guessing and thinking is a delight. Since grade school, I am treating education and schooling as enjoyable pages of a person’s life.  And until now, it is a great FUN and it never fails me to get excited when the season of “papers and pen” comes.
But FUN is not just to go and be happy with some useless stuff. My idea of Fun is to accomplish this F.U.N formula that I believe in and will contribute a lot in our life’s endeavor and struggle.

A close shot of my book, pens and note which will be used for my schooling, my biggest FUN in life

Finalize your Education
This is my first and foremost priority, not just for my own good but for my life’s satisfaction and success. Success in the way that I would accomplish all my needs and obtain my greatest FUN in life, boosted Career and well-built future family.  The best way to obtain this is to finalize and to take a good education.  I bet everybody knows about it and hope to treat this as part of their FUN life.

On June 16, my 4th year and last year of schooling will start. I’ve been studying for two years already in Cebu Institute of Technology where I always do a FUN learning. Because I enjoyed schooling, I am now ready for the school opening and hopefully, I will spend my FUN school time throughout the semester with ease and smile.

Got a shot of my things for school, my notebook and bag with the forever useful Encyclopedia Americana

Utilize the Knowledge
How useless would it be, if a person spent many years for good education and in the end, will just sit back and assumed nothing happens?  We must use our earned knowledge. This is our tool outside, in the real world, in the battlefield — this is our shield and with this, we will be successful and the ultimate FUN will be accomplished.

Above is a picture taken from Cebu Bloggers Society’s Bloggers Social Responsibility (BSR). Our Co-CBS member, Melith taught high school students about computer basics. This is how CBS utilizes its knowledge, a great way of sharing the FUN.

Negate the Unnecessary
In my own dictionary, to negate means to eradicate. Thus, we must eradicate the unnecessary things and happenings in our life in order to obtain the much awaited FUN. How to eradicate those? Well, very simple, focus on the bright side of life, work with it, expand and give it a heavy value to your life, enjoy with it, love it, experience with it and lastly, make FUN with it  —  Just focus and be optimistic.

Remember, Unnecessary is synonymous to unneeded; obviously means, those things which are unnecessary are not needed in our life. Live life to the fullest and focus on the good things around you.

At first people assumed that Gabii sa Kabilin event here in Cebu was a tiresome activity but as the event went on, we, CBS participants felt at ease and had enjoyed the culture and traditions that Cebu has. LEFT: A shot from the Gabii sa Kabilin Event.
RIGHT: By focusing on the output of this event, 6 CBS members aggressively cleaned the walls,posts and nearby buildings at Pari-an St so with Colon and Mabini St. A result was a never-ending FUN of food trip and story telling. Photo: A picture of me cleaning the wall just near the Parian Monuments

FUN doesn’t always mean activities that are enjoyable or amusing. Sometimes, we ignore those people, events or activities in our life which at first, we treat them as hassle bugs. But if we just swim and explore deeply on them, then we will find out that real FUN is there waiting for our embrace. This is how I formulized my idea of Fun, Finalize your Education + Utilize the Knowledge + Negate the Unnecessary = ultimate FUN. How about you?
