Happy Easter guys! I hope you had a meaningful and restful Holy Week. Btw guys, before the Holy Week my hubby and I went to Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm in Silang. I heard from my friend ,Dennie, that Royal Jelly and Bee Pollen were good for immune and reproductive system.Later, a former colleague shared that she has been taking Royal Jelly for the same reasons. I would often see the sign of Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm every time we go to Tagaytay but I never had a chance to stop by the store. So last week, I insisted on buying Honeybee products to my husband. I made him kulit that they were nice presents for my MIL because later we would visit Korea. Told him also that since my OB-gyne's clinic was near Silang, it won't be that far.Buti na lang pinagbigyan ako ni hubby.
My gulay guys!
I really thought that Dasma was just few minutes away from the farm. After 40 minutes my husband asked why we had not gotten off from the bus yet. I kept on asking and telling manong bus conductor where the farm was. In my last attempt to ask, he cut me in before I could finish my sentence.
"sabihin ko inyo kung bababa na kayo" , The conductor sassed with a face that spelled like trouble if I dared ask him again the same question lol.
When we finally got off from the bus, I asked the locals where we could get a tricycle to bring us to the store. They told us that the store was within walking distance. So we ended up wading through the dirt road under the blinding sun and scorching hot 33 degree Celsius midday weather. My husband could not shut up his yap on our way to the farm. Naihi pa ako sa kalagitnaan ng aming paglalakbay. Buti na lang maraming damo sa paligid-ligid. wa pakels.
And when we finally reached the store , buy na agad ang lola before pa magwala si hubby.
The store sells variety of honey bee products.
Teka...What's the matter peanut butter over there? Usyoso mode on. lol.
The owner himself was giving free Bee sting therapy for people with diabetes, psoriasis, cancer and rheumatism. There were also patients recovering from stroke.
My husband is such a chicken when it comes to insects and anything that crawls drive him nuts.
"yobo, would you like to try?" .
"nooooo! I don't like!" he replied while shaking his head as if it would dislodge from his neck.
"who are the first-timers here?" asked the Bee farm owner while looking at us. I think he knew that we were first time visitors.
I dragged my husband and pinned him down on the chair before he could complain. He was asked to take off his shoes for allergy test. Well, the allergy test was like ant's bite according to him so it did not hurt him that much.
After 30 minutes, when there were no allergic reactions, he was asked to sit again. He was hesitant but everybody's eyes was on him so he had no choice. The owner asked what was his sickness. We told him about my husband's frequent headaches and lethargic mood. His recent blood pressure was 140/100 which was not ideal.
Bee sting on my husband's hands.
His airs vanished on the second round lol. His mouth opened wide but no words came out (hahaha) with eyes all popped out. He stood up outright and circled the hall more than five times while shaking both of his hands. I laughed hard. Rude.
He told me to try it too. But I just had my FSH fertility treatment injection.According to the owner , it is not ideal to have bee sting therapy while under synthetic medicine.
" You want me to die" , I retorted . hehehe.
More pictures below.
Hindi po ako pumasok sa toilet ng lalaki hehehe. There's a communal toilet in the farm. I did not take a picture of the inudoro. Sagwa e lols. Before we left, I made sure naka wee wee na ko.
May shower pa. winner!
BTW guys, the store is open from Tuesday to Sunday. If you want to try the Bee sting therapy, you must come on Wednesday between 10 am - 12 noon. I will bring my father there when I come back from Korea. He has gout and his sugar level is above normal. Also, he has been taking maintenance medicine for almost 10 years. A lot of patients there got better since they have started the Bee sting therapy.
This old man came in with a walking cane after two bee stings, he could walk slowly without the stick.
You could also purchase their items online at www.ilogmaria.com/shop/. They accept payments thru BPI and Globe G-cash. You will shoulder the shipping fee at minimal cost. If you do not have your own car and do not intend to have a bee sting therapy, I suggest that you purchase the items you want online; it's more convenient.
If you want to tour their sanctuary, you must come every Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 8:00 - 10:00 am .
Here are the products we bought : Virgin Honey, Royal Jelly and Bee Pollen.
If you have read my 30 Days of blogging entry , I blogged about the health benefits of the items above. Here's the link 30 days of blogging : Share a recipe, book or product you have recently tried
By the way again guys,if you want to try the bee sting therapy, naku it is really itchy and expect that the area stung by the bee would be swollen for days as in up to two weeks or months pa sa iba My husband was so kulit , he scratched his hands so sugat sugat sya.
Tip : Put ice over the itchy area. If it's uber itchy and swollen na talga CRY. lols. It's a BIG as in BIG no no mag apply or take ng synthetic drugs.
That's it , pancit!
