In case you wanted to visit me or our family, these are the roads going to our home.
This road is connected to Kawayan Drive. I have no idea why it was named Kawayan where you couldn’t find any Kawayan on this place. Kawayan means “Bamboo”, and this is the right side if you are coming from our home. Have you seen Janjan on the photo?
…and this is the left side if you coming from our home.
…and this is the way going to home.
… and finally, this is our home. Our gate painted with chocolate brown, the house painted with green. It is a 2 storey house and it has a big yard inside.
When I was at the wet market, I saw this big round look like coconut. It was displayed outside the grocery store. There was a guard standing near to it. I asked him what it was. He told me that it was a “Miracle Fruit”. The guard gave me a small flyer, and I have read that this Miracle Fruit can cure many diseases. You just cook with the meat inside with water, and drink the water when it is ready. The price for this Miracle Fruit is Php. 20.00 per kilo, but the weight of 1 fruit approx 3 to 4 kilos. I was interested to buy but the doctor doesn’t allow me to carry heavy things. So, I would probably go back there, but I will bring Jason, my first son, so I have somebody to carry the fruit to the house. Happy Monday everyone.
These photos were taken a few months ago. I love going to this place in the afternoon, but we haven’t visited this place lately because of the weather. We always have rains late in the afternoon that is why it’s been awhile now since the last time we visited this place. Anyway, this place is not really far from where we live. It’s only 5 minutes drive from our place. I have planned to go on Sunday morning, so I can join the group of women doing their morning exercise. The last time I was there, I was just watching them dancing. I wanted to join but I was wet at that time because it was high tide, and we went on swimming.
Saluyot is one of the nutritious vegetables in the Philippines. When I visited my son in his school, I saw a food pyramid chart and one of the recommended vegetables to be part of our dietary foods is saluyot, or jute leaves in English. In the family, it’s only me and my mother who eats this vegetable. Do you know that this saluyot can give you long life, good health, and youthful looks? I am glad that I don’t need to buy saluyot in the market because my father plants it in the backyard and on my vacant lot. How about you, do you eat saluyot?
A few days ago, my brother who is living in Canada called me on the phone. I was honestly annoyed because he called in the middle of the night. We are 12 hours ahead of time. The bad thing is, every time he called, we spent over an hour on the phone because he is using a card, and he wanted to consume all the money on the card. He said, the card cannot be used for second call, so to maximize the usage of the card, we will stop talking until to the last minute.
Anyway, the reason why he called it is because he wanted to know the prices of guitars here either acoustic or electric guitar. He told me that guitars in Canada are so expensive, and he has planned to visit us by next year. So, if I could find a cheaper guitar, he will buy a guitar here when he comes. I went to the music store at the mall and I got prices on the guitars he mentioned to me. I also found this gig rig mixer with rack. I thought it is so expensive, but the price is reasonable. I know my friend needs this kind of mixer because she has mobile instrument business. I have not seen her for weeks now but I can send her a sms to her mobile phone. I know she will be happy for it if I tell her that I found a mixer with rack and wheels.
I love this kind of roof for the porch. I bought a new house far from where I live right now, but it doesn’t have a porch yet. So, I am planning to put like this to our new home. Lovely, isn’t it? By the way, I will show you on my next post, the house that I bought weeks ago.
A pop-up sink stopper is linked to an ingenious mechanism that raises and lowers the stopper to open and close the drain. If the sink doesn’t hold water or the stopper doesn’t pop-up, the pivot rod needs to be adjusted. Look under the sink, you will see a small metal rod (the pivot rod), that extends from the drain pipe into a hole in a narrow metal strip (clevis strap) and is held in place with a V-shaped clip (spring clip). To adjust the pivot rod, pinch the spring clip, and pull it off. Move the pivot rod into a different hole, replace the spring clip, and test the drain.
Most of us start and end our days in the bathroom. This room should always be pleasant, comfortable, and in good repair.
Fill a chip in a porcelain or enamel sink.
Porcelain and enamel sinks are pretty durable, but accidents happen. There’s no reason to ignore a chipped sink. You can buy porcelain or enamel repair kit at any hardware store or home center. Most of these kids include filler and paint that you brush on like nail polish.
As I have mentioned from my other blog that I don’t want to get up from the bed. I know there are simple ways you can do throughout the day to get long lasting energy like when you get up in the morning, try to look at the light or much better expose yourself to two minutes of bright light. It helps your body to shut down its production of melatonin, a sleep hormone that can cause you feel sleepy. According to the expert, our brain produces this hormone at night to keep us sleepy, but a morning blast of light tells our brain to quit making melatonin so energy levels can effectively soar. Oh well, I need to get up because I have so much thing to do today like shopping for groceries, plus my son asked me to buy his shaving cream. I wish I could shop online and shop this taylor of old bond street shaving cream for him, but I don’t have credit card right now. Ok, that’s all for now.
When I had a house tripping last month, I took some shots of the model houses that we visited and this is one of them. It was properly arranged and very presentable to the guests. Even the place was so small; the interior design was perfect for me. The only thing which I don’t like was the master’s bedroom. There was no bathroom inside the master’s bedroom. If possible, I would love to have my own bathroom with bath tub of course so I can hide from there if I need to be alone. Lol However, the whole package is good, enough for a newly wed couple or for couples who have one to two kids.
