    Everybody Dies, so Why Bother?

    As I scroll down my social media timelines, I see my friends, colleagues, and acquaintances writing their year-end/decade-end essays. I wanted to go on a different path and convince myself I didn’t need to write one. Who gives a shit about reading mine anyway? LOL But here I am, doing the opposite. First of all, I want to say how proud I am of YOU. Yes YOU, the one reading my post. Despite all of the hardships, turmoils, and challenges that came you’re way. It’s already a great accomplishment that you’re still hanging on, breathing. 2010-2019 A Bullet Summary Next, I’ll share 10-year recap of what happened in my so-called…

    Air Purifier for Allergies and Asthma Relief – Is it Effective?

    I’ve had allergies from cats, dust, and pollen ever since I can remember. I’m sick of the never-ending runny nose, sneezing, cough, itchy throat, etc. What sucks is we have a cat at home, whom we LOVE so so much. Typical anthistamines like Cetrizine or Loratidine give temporary relief. But lately, not one single medicine is working anymore. Until one fine day, my boyfriend sent me a FB post on Dyson’s Air Purifier for allergies. I told him that thing costs almost 50,000 pesos and I can’t afford something that expensive.  I was even torn between choosing an air humidifier vs air purifier.    What is an Air Purifier? It…

    Air Humidifier vs Air Purifier – Which one should you get?

    I’ve been suffering from allergic rhinitis ever since. So my boyfriend advised me to purchase an air humidifier vs air purifier. So off I went to the mall to get one. Until the sales lady told me, “They’re different products mam. Each have different functions”.   I initially thought it’s an all-in-one product. Like it’s both a humidifier and purifier. I was wrong. Benefits of owning an Air Purifier/Air Humidifier Both products are great for people with sinus and respiratory issues, however, the way they offer relief is different. An air purifier cycles your room’s air through a series of filters. These filters remove allergens and contaminants to make the air…

    Cleaning the Toilet – Domestication of an Undomesticated Mommy

    Here’s another confession. I’m an undomesticated mom. I was raised by my family relying on them or house help and it’s too late for the blame game. I don’t do the dishes, laundry, cleaning the toilet, etc. We’ve recently moved out from my parents (I’m a single mom) a few months ago and it’s only Jop and myself. We live in a small apartment so it’s easy to tidy up even for a newbie like me. The most challenging chore?  Cleaning the toilet. It’s the most used area in our house right? We do our #2 and #3 and we don’t want to use a stinky toilet so I asked…
