Southern Tagalog Integrated Agri Reseach Center
Favorite thing: Batangas just like most of the provinces rely largely in agriculture. Being strategically located no wonder Southern Tagalog Integrated Agricultural Research Center (STIARC) was established in Marawoy, Lipa City, Batangas. It is a dynamic Center that effectively responds to the needs of the agriculture sector in Region IV-A (CALABARZON) in support to the goals and objectives through excellence in Research and Development.
I was able to visit the Center when I attended a Fertilizer and Pesticides Seminar for those who will be venturing on the business. It was a wonderful experience as I thought that the government particularly the Dept.of Agriculture where STIARC is under is doing nothing to alleviate the flight of the agricultural sector.

Pandesal with Malunggay (Miracle Vegetable)
Favorite thing: Pandesal bread is the number one alternative for rice or kamote during breakfast. It is eaten with either scrambled or sunny side up egg, cheese, ham, bacon etc... What amazed me most when I went to a local bakery in Calapan, I found a pandesal flavored with malunggay. Although I know of the benifit of malunggay to a lactating mother never did I realize that it also essential to others.
Malunggay, known scientifically as Moringa oleifera Lamk, is one of the world's most useful plants. It is used as food, effective flocculant or water treatment, antibiotic, source of oil, and coagulant for turbid waters.
It is also called "mother's best friend", and "miracle vegetable" by many who know malunggay's beneficial uses. It is cultivated in all countries of the tropics. It is easy to plant and is available year-round.
When I visited Robinson's Mall in Lipa, Batangas I noticed Pan de Manila where I noticed this Pandesal with Malunggay. It tastes good! Try it!
