Permanent marker pen

I decided to buy a permanent marker pen on the bookstore the other day because I needed it in some important notes on cards and gift tags. I found this red pen with two tips on both ends. The one has smaller ballpoint while the other tip is bigger. The quality is good because it does not blot and marks easily when written on any paper surfaces. This marker pen has many useful writing purposes for me.

Soft broom

Home cleaning is always an important activity in the household. It keeps home healthy to live in. When my old broom was worn out, I decided to bought a new one in the local market. This soft broom is made of a grass that grows in the highlands and mountains. A very indigenous natural product that really helps as a cleaning aid.  I can see that the strands were being tight securely so that it would not easily detached in continued use. This soft broom usually lasts about nine to ten months at home.

Sky watching at home

Staying at home is always my favorite past time because it feels relaxing to me looking at those nice views especially when I bring with me my camera. I took this shot one afternoon at the back area. The weather was gloomy and rain was expected.  This tree has been standing the sunny and rainy weathers and I was wondering why it did not grow its leaves much as compared to the mango tree beside. Well I had no idea maybe part of natures' purpose for this tree. I hope to get more sky shots when I have time again.

Floor tiles

These floor tiles had been serving the kitchen area for more than five years now. Floors are very important part of the house because they form part of the entire space or area  which occupies many things like furniture and fixtures, appliances, beddings and many more household items.   The peach motif of the floor  is very cool and it matches with any kind of color to have in the area. The advantage of having tiles is that it is very easy to clean with just soap and clean water. Also it is very durable and that it can withstand in time.

Roof Sealant

The long vacation this week was just a good timing because we were able to do some house fixings. I bought this roof sealant in the hardware last weekend and requested my brother to climb the roof and had it sealed on each of the roof nails on the galvanized iron. I like this kind of sealant because it immediately dries up and seals easily when in contact with metal or  aluminum objects. Sealing was very fast for my brother as the pouch is an easy squeeze. Now I am confident that if ever heavy rain comes, my roof is protected with this sealant.

After I paid the item in the cashier, I was qualified for these two shopping coupons. I also use my shopper's card here to avail points. I felt  happy because my time to shop & wait on the store was complimented by these coupons. I hope to be lucky to avail of the prizes in the grand draw this year.

Another devastating news that made headlines this week was the earthquake in Turkey where as much as 1000 people were buried a live when buildings collapsed. I can sense that earthquake is roaming in many countries and quite alarming that anytime no country is ever safe to experience a strong earthquake. many lives were lost because of this calamity. The earth that we are living has already aged and many natural calamities were happening in different parts of the globe. This time the people needs awareness, care and concern to the surroundings.

Comforter laundry

Every weekend is my schedule for laundry at home. I see to it that my personal bedding is freshly wash and clean. This white comforter is the one used by my brother. Color white is quite susceptible to dirt so it needs an often laundry after a week of use. Since the comforter cloth is so thick and quilted, I let it soaked in water with powder soap overnight. The had it washed the following day to make sure the blanket is free from stains and dirt. After that I had this comforter be totally dried using an electric washer/drier. Hang under the sun for the whole day and then fold after. I can feel the cleanliness of this white comforter and again ready to use for the bedding.

I had all my time one afternoon at home and tried taking pictures at home. This door knob that was installed in the front molave door of the house just caught my attention.

The door knob has many use as it serves as protection from burglaries from entering the personal premises. I bought this at a quite pricey amount and the price just equaled to the quality performance that it possess until this time.

I had been a consistent user of organic products of Plantex.

This is my personal way of helping for the environment by using organic products in the household and personal use. I can readily purchase the products as the store outlet is always available in the downtown area.

I can remember the first birthday celebration of my niece last month which was attended by many families, relatives and  friends. We enjoyed the celebration a lot as much as the visitors who were around. Many foods, drinks and desserts were being served to all the guests. Before we went home, a cute birthday token was given and this was a kitty marker. Colored pink that has many uses. It can be a book marker, personalized accessory in cellphones, bags and other fashion belongings. More than the celebration, foods and gifts, what is important is the christening and the thanksgiving of the family for the new life of my nephew.

Molave door

This front door at home has been serving its purpose for twelve years already.  It is made from a hard wood named molave that is of very good quality and kind. I think seldom this time to find hard wood like this because of forest protection of trees. We chose sunriser design for good luck. When choosing for long lasting home furnishings I always look for quality and durability. For many years this door withstand the test of sunny and rainy weathers and the quality of color never fades. There is a screen door placed in front of the door which also serves as a protection from the wood. I hope this molave door would last for many more years to come.

I consider my hair as one of my priority with regards to personal grooming. Everyday I see to it that my hair is clean, conditioned and brush/comb properly.

Its mild formulation can adjust to many different kinds of hair texture and kind.  This is already part of my daily hair regimen.

Organic moisturizing oil

I have noticed that my skin needs thorough moisturizing. Maybe because of the weather changes and also my skin easily gets dehydrated. I am no longer solved with hand and body lotion as it is no longer effective as moisturizer. I choose this organic moisturizing oil this time. It is made from lemon grass extracts that thoroughly moisturizes extra dry skin. I apply a few spritz on my hands, arms and legs. It feels soothing when I applied it for the entire day. No dry skin feeling and spasms are being minimized. I prefer organic this time for a more youthful glow.
