GLOBAL EXPATS FEATURE: Helen and Her Adventures

GLOBAL EXPATS FEATURE: Helen and Her Adventures

Hey PeN pals!

Get to know the newest addition to our community!

Helen Sumampong- Cienca hails from Bohol, Philippines.

She left Bohol to chase her dreams; she became a pharmacist  in California, U.S.A.

You can say her typical day could be quite hectic and demanding that’s why she sees to it that her days off would be worthwhile.

She pampers herself and go shopping sometimes but when she’s on the mood, they go on exciting places you would definitely enjoy, too!

Helen lives in Brea which is strategically near to everything! Peek into Helen’s charmed life!

Last winter, they went to Mountain High where you can see the beauty of nature covered with fine snow!

Just look how they are enjoying the little snowman. Isn’t cool that she gets to make the most of her time with her family? Helen is such a wonderful woman.

Mountain High can be enjoyed by skiing or doing other extreme sports.

They can easily treat the kids and have some fun time at Disneyland, too. Helen can go to Disneyland in Anaheim – anytime – since they are just minutes away! When kids are around, life becomes extra sweet, right? It doesn’t look like it but Helen is a doting grand mom already!

Helen also visits Las Vegas for some real relaxation with friends and her husband, Clyde.

Check out the Seven Magic Mountains they visited recently. The Seven Magic Mountains is a public-site art installation in the Nevada desert. Can you imagine how heavy those rocks are?!

And lastly, her trip to the Grand Canyon deserves an indescribable admiration. Nature’s wonder is beyond beautiful.

SANTA ROSA FIRE AFTERMATH VIDEO – OCTOBER 2017

SANTA ROSA FIRE AFTERMATH VIDEO – OCTOBER 2017

The above footage was filmed using an iPhone (Coffee Park).

This was the result of the deadly wildfires (Nothern California) that destroyed parts of North Bay. Neighborhoods were wiped out and iconic structures were unrecognizable.

The death toll reached 41 and the number is expected to rise.

People are flying drones, but are not encouraged to do so because firefighting planes might not be able to fly over affected areas.

27 ALREADY KILLED BY HEPATITIS OUTBREAK IN CALIFORNIA

27 ALREADY KILLED BY HEPATITIS OUTBREAK IN CALIFORNIA

A total of 421 patients have contracted the Hepatitis A disease since early 2017, said the Public Health Services Division in the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency.

With 27 deaths and 292 hospitalizations, California has declared a Hepatitis A outbreak mostly victimizing homeless individuals according to the agency.

An overview of the user report from PeN’s PULSE Virus Tracker

Vaccination efforts are being implemented on strategic locations in the county.

According to WHO,” Hepatitis A is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis A virus. The virus is primarily spread when an uninfected (and unvaccinated) person ingests food or water that is contaminated with the faeces of an infected person. The disease is closely associated with unsafe water or food, inadequate sanitation and poor personal hygiene.”

Hepatitis A can be avoided by thoroughly cleaning your hands after using the toilet and avoiding direct contact to contaminated stool, blood samples and other bodily fluid. Avoiding contaminated water and food is also important to prevent having the disease.
