Malunggay Opisyal na Gulay ng Pinoy at Pinay

The House committee on revisions on law approved a bill declaring Malunggay as the Philippine National Vegetable. The month of November of every year was also declared the “National Malunggay Month.” This bill was authored by Pangasinan Rep Gina de Venecia.

This small but terrible vegetable is rich in Vitamins C and A, iron and high-density lipoprotein of good cholesterol, making it an effective cure for illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, inflammation, infections, cancer and aging issues (hmm, aging issues...gotta eat more!)

I'm so happy and proud to announce that I now have my own Malunggay, ang opisyal na gulay ng mga Pinoy at Pinay.

My very own malunggay after two months of waiting

This was given by my friend Malou for she knows I'd like to grow my own malunggay tree. She told me it's easy to grow but I didn't believe her because I know I don't have green thumb. Just after 2 months the photo above proved that Malou's right after all.
