Home Beautification Project 2016 Update


Currently, we are doing home renovation or should I say beautification. Instead of hiring someone to do the task, yours truly made it, but of course with the help of Mommy.

The project is not as fast as expected since I can only do this after work and during weekends.

To give you some updates, I am already done repainting the kitchen and I have to add some shelf for the condiments.

Kitchen is almost done here
On our living room, I finally made this simple wall where to place the TV.

Chemist Dad Working in the Living Room

The TV set is already in place and the Christmas Tree is already up but curtains, carpet and cover for the sofa is not yet finalized.

Our Living Room, not yet finished
I am also looking for a nice speaker to complete the home entertainment experience at its best. I want to have a unit that gives the best sound like how a shure beta 91 captures the beat of the drums.

There are still lots of tasks to be done and hopefully, I can finish these before the year ends. Later, I will be doing the repainting of the remaining walls as well as the stairs.

That's all for now and I will keep you updated on our Home Beautification Project 2016.

Repainting with Davies Paints


As mentioned before we are doing home repainting. As of today, I already finished the kitchen and in our dining area. more to go.Whew!

When we had our previous repainting two or three years ago, I decided to buy a pail of paint mixed in a paint center nearby. The paint lasted though there are areas that started to fade. The quality is not good since when you rub it with a wet rag, the paint disappears.

Davies Paints

I don't want this to happen again. this time, I decided to buy a trusted brand that will.last for years even it will cost a bit more. I opt to use Davies Paints.

Coat Saver

For the plain white or "flat", I opt for Coat Saver Flat Latex Paint. By the way, this brand is also made by Davies Paints.

First coat that hides the old paint

As to the description, it has high hiding capacity which is true. You can already see the difference after the first coat and after the second coat, you can no longer see any trace of the old paint.

Davies Megacryl

For the final color, I picked the Davies Megacryl Semi-Gloss Latex Paint. I did not buy the ready-to-use colors but opt to have white or base color and mix with the tint. This procedure is available at Ace Hardware, but I am not sure if all branches offer the same. By the way, I picked for the Mission Beige tone.

All you have to do is to pick the color you want from their "color fan", enter the code into the computer and voila, you got the color you pick.

One thing that is good with this method is you can have exactly the same color anytime. Unlike the ready-made, there is a possibility that the color you picked might run-out of stock.

Since the Megacryl is a semi-gloss, removing dirt or stain is easy. Just scrub it with a wet rag.

Davies Aqua Gloss-it

Since there are cabinets and doors to be repainted as well as the stairs, I need to have another color. This will be also used as accents or contrast to the color of the walls. Since these colors will be used in concrete, wood and metal, I picked the Davies Aqua Gloss-it. This is a 3-in-1 Water-Based, Glossy Enamel meaning it can be used for any surface.

To get its optimum painting ability, I did not add water to the paint even if a small amount is recommended

One more thing why I chose these set of paints is they have low odor. Parang walang nagpipintura sa bahay.

I need to leave from here and continue my repainting task.

On Christmas Gift Ideas For Dads and Groupon


This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Forty days to go before Christmas. You can already feel the cold breeze, especially in early morning.Have you already started buying gifts? If not, here are some of the gift ideas for fellow Dads like me.

Finding best buys in stores and malls can be tiring nowadays since there are lots of individuals, just like everyone else, searching for their Christmas list too. One way to get rid of this scenario is thru online shopping.

One thing that you should take into consideration is the credibility of the site to avoid scams. Groupon is one of the many online shopping store in the web. As early as today, they are giving discounts via Groupon Coupons.

Here are some Christmas gift ideas for Dads like me.

Shirts
This is a “cliché” and the simplest gift that can be given to Dads. Although easy to find, looking for a perfect piece is not simple. You must know what is their preference in terms of color and fit. Polo shirts or simple t-shirt will do. If you are not sure of the color, choose plain white like the one I saw from Hanes.

Shoes
You can choose  a wide variety of shoes when you go to the mall. From casual to formal and even sports shoes will be a great option. If I am to be asked, I prefer sneakers, low or high cut will do. World Balance, Converse or Skechers will be a good option for me.

Gadgets
Since we are already in the last part of the year, most gadgets will have markdown prices. This will be the best time to purchase one.


Leathers

Belts and wallets will be definitely included in the list of possible items to be wrapped as Christmas presents though there are other leather accessories to find in stores.


Wine and Liquors

There are times Dad needs to have a chill, either alone of with company. Giving alcoholic drinks like wine or liquors is quite good. This is can be also stored for a longer time making a great memorable gift.

Most Dads love doing home tasks mechanic or DIYs at home. Wrapping tools for these hobbies will surely put a smile on their face. 



How about you, what are your gift suggestions for Dads?

A Place To Call Home TV Series


Pinoy Teleseryes are good but most plots are cliché, meaning they have almost the same story. This makes me a bit uninterested in watching these soap operas.


I tried diverting my interest in watching foreign TV series and I found another quality TV Series. This time it is not from the US but from Australia entitled A Place to Call Home.

A Place to Call Home
Photo Source: FOXTEL

The setting of A Place to Call Home is in the rural part of New South Wales after the Second World War.

The story revolves on Sarah Adams who came back from Europe. After 20 years, Sarah returned and wanted to start a new life in Australia. 

On her travel going back to Australia, Sarah clashed with a wealthy family in the ocean liner – the Bligh, headed with Elizabeth.

Sarah saved the drunk James Bligh, Elizabeth’s grandson, trying to end his life by jumping off the ship. Elizabeth asked Sarah to keep the incident a secret among them.

Upon Sarah’s return to her mother’s house, she found out that her mother is ill and looking for her. Unfortunately, she needs to get out of the house since her mother refused to accept her. Sarah can only return to the house if she is willing to deny her being Jew.

Nothing to go, Sarah send a note to George Bligh, Elizabeth’s son, and asked help. George and Sarah had an immediate connection in the ocean line.

Knowing that she is a nurse, George referred her to Dr. Jack Duncan and started immediately as the new community nurse.

From there, the secrets of Sara Adams and the Bligh Family will start to reveal.

Who is Sarah Adams in the past? How was her life in Europe during Second World War? How she survived the war?

What are the secrets of Bligh family? Why did Elizabeth want to keep James’ suicidal act a secret? Why James do wanted to end his life?

How do Elizabeth and Sarah deal with each other?

A Place to Call Home Casts (Source: The Guardian)

Currently, A Place to Call Home airs on its 4th season but I am still on the 2nd. Though the series is set in the 1950s after the Second World War, there are lots issues there are seen in our current time. Every Episode is also full of twists and revelations.

You can watch all the episodes in Putlockers and if you want to download and watch it later, you can do this thru Internet Download Manager.

Are you a follower of this series too?

Our Home Renovation Plan 2016


Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Mommy and I have been meaning to have another home renovation. So last Sunday we went to the nearest mall to start shopping for the stuff we need. We will start with re-painting our interior walls so we bought paints and paint tools. (Read: Sunday Fun Date with Daddy A and Matthew)

It was just a quick trip because of lack of time. Oh yes, that's the main reason why until now we are not yet done with our home renovation that we planned early this year. It is not a major renovation but we will start with wall re-painting in the kitchen and living room. Mommy and I are talking about new interior design for our small living room.

Our Living Room with Matthew

The arrangement will not be completed if bedroom will be excluded. We are eyeing for a bed frame especially when Matthew needs to sleep in a separate room. Of course, the new mattress is needed and I saw one on Groupon Goods.


Not only mattress or things for a room or entire house renovation can be seen there but fashion and accessories, health and beauty, sports and leisure, groceries and pet products, and electronics and gadgets as well. 

There so many things to do and buy but we lack time because of our daily work. Good thing online shopping is invented. I can shop while I am at work or at home. It's not just about convenience because you can also get good online deals from site like Groupon.

What is your experience with Groupon?

Weeks ago, I received a package from unknown and I was surprised to open the box containing these items:

Sugar Blend

Sugar Blend is the newest product of Merisant Company, a global leader for table-top sweeteners. They are also the manufacturer of Equal, Canderel, and Pure Via.

From the press release:

Based on the 2016 Food Consumption Survey by the Food and NutritionResearch Institute of Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST), sugar rank fifth I the top 20 most commonly consumed food products in Filipino Households. With this in mind and along with the conscious effort to deliver more value to consumers, MErisant has come up with a versatile and affordable sweetener product that can go a long way in terms od providing healthy sweetness to your everyday food and drinks.

The new Sugar Blend can be used for baking, cooking, and sweetening, but uses half amount compared to the sweetness of table sugar and even half with calories. It is made with sugar and a high-intensity sweetener called sucralose. For one tablespoon of Sugar Blend, it can give an equivalent sweetness of 2 tablespoons of table sugar.

Sugar Blend works well with all types of desserts as well as other everyday dishes where a sweetness is needed. It can be used to replace sugar in beverages such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate and all kinds of juices and refreshments.

I can’t wait to try Sugar Blend in my baking activities.

Going to Baguio is easy either by land or air. If you are from Luzon, you can reach the city via bus. If you are from Visayas and Mindanao regions, search for cheap flights to Manila at Traveloka, then ride a bus to Baguio.

Aside from its really cooler weather, and strawberry picking of course, there are other happenings and places in Baguio that you can visit this Christmas Season.

The Christmas Village

On Short Trip to Isabela and Rice Classification


Last week, I was sent by the management to conduct and audit to some of our raw material suppliers in Isabela and Munoz, Nueva Ecija.

I was excited since it will be the first time for me to visit Isabela.

Together with my colleague, we headed Nueva Ecija first as one of the lists in the suppliers. Since the said rice mill is in my hometown, I decided to drive and leave the car to my parent’s house. Afterward, we headed Isabela via bus.

We traveled for 8 hours with two stop-overs before reaching Cauayan, Isabela and had our stay at Ocho Rios Hotel. We had our dinner at the near carinderia. I heard that food in this place is inexpensive. And I have to agree, our dinner cost only 180 pesos for the two of us.

The following day, we have to do our work to audit several rice mills. There is information that I learned on this audit.

First, commercial rice sold in the market are all the same. If you heard of Dinorado, Sinandomeng, Jollibee and other name of rice differs only by the percentage of whole grain.

Second, brown rice is also of the same with commercial rice. This kind of rice is the product of the first step in rice milling – the dehulling. After the skin of paly has been removed, brown rice is the output. This is healthier since the bran is still intact which contributes fiber in the rice.

Third, to attain white rice, the grains passes three steps of a whitening procedure. It will then pass through a polishing step where water is sprayed to give a glossy finish to the grains.

Fourth, there are certain customers that like to have the rice came from at least 3-month old palay. This rice is best used for fried rice since it has. The younger the age of palay, the stickier the rice.

After the visiting the rice mills, we need to go back to Bulacan so we don’t have time for leisure. All I got is this picture while waiting for the bus in front of the Provincial Capitol Building.



We reached Nueva Ecija around 11pm. I just get the car and drive going back to Bulacan.

To fight sleepiness, I had to set the car in full volume. At that time, we were listening to a radio station where the DJs sing live accompanied by guitar. I guess that will be better if used drums are added to give more beat to the music.

Have you been to Isabela too?

Things to Consider in Home Renovation


About two more years to go and we are finally done paying our small but home sweet home. Time flies so fast na parang kailan lang I was visiting the house weekly until we finally set there.

Our house 8 years ago.


After two years, Mommy and I plan to have a major renovation. We want to fix the room for Matthew, more space in the kitchen, another bathroom upstairs, a relaxing spot on the second floor, and many more. At ang nakakagulat, Matthew wanted to have a swimming pool!

Before having a house renovation, here are some factors that you need to consider in pursuing home renovation.

Design
Though there are many things we wanted to change in our home, having a final design will guide the people who will do the renovation making the process smooth. Also, by having a design in advance will give you an estimated value for the materials and time frame.

Others consider consultation with a Feng Shui expert for good lucks. If the budget for this is not included, here are some basic tips that can be used as a guide: http://www.americanclassichomes.com/blog/feng-shui-for-american-homes/.

Budget
After having the desired design, next thing to put in consideration is the budget. Without considering the budget, a delay in finishing the project will be encountered.

Tip: If you are on a tight budget, doing DIYs can help a lot.

Season
In my previous experiences, the best season for home renovation is during summer. The probability of encountering heavy rainfall is very rare making the process of drying on some areas like cement and adhesives faster. 

Furthermore, in case the project is not yet done especially in roofing, worrying about getting the entire house wet will be reduced.

Furniture and Fixtures
Choosing the right fixtures and furniture must be put into consideration too. After having the home design, searching for the right furniture must be made. 

If hiring an interior designer, a close communication with the renovation team is needed to determine what size and forms of the furniture will fit the new house.

Fire Safety

Also, it is very important to make our home fireproof. Because we don't want to go to waste all our hard earned investments right? Invest on the right fire extinguisher too. To know what's the right fire extinguisher to buy check out fire protection online.

There are still other considerations that are not yet mentioned above. Can you think of something?

Basic Works at Home That Every Dad Should Learn


Having your own home is not as easy as you think of. There are many  things need to learn especially by dads like me. Simple or complicated tasks were taught to us in our primary school days just like I mentioned in my speech last year. Though you can hire someone to fix it but knowing how to do it will save you a lot.

Here are some things that every dad should know:

Electrical
Simple replacement of busted lamps, reconnecting cut wires, changing electrical plugs, making your own extension wires are just some that I think every dad must know. This will save you much than asking help of the nearest electricians. Just be sure that you are connecting the right wires to the right way.

Cooking
Most of the dads used to assign this task to moms but cooking is one of my passion and I am happy working in the kitchen. I used to wake up earlier to prepare for our breakfast and lunch.

Preparing the ingredients is the most time consuming part of cooking. Preparing all the ingredients at night and store it in the fridge is a way to save time para sa umaga, salang na lang. In less than an hour, you have already your breakfast and lunch ready.

Gardening
Daddy A. planting dragon fruit cuttings

A home without greens is quite dull. Having pots of ornamental plants will give additional accent and making a fresher look at your own home. Having pots and plants does not end there, you need to know how to take care of it. This year, one of my targets is to have a plant box in front of our home which leads the next skill – masonry and carpentry.

By the way, as I was checking my lemon plants this morning, I saw couple of flowers starting to emerge. Seeing how your plants develop is a great achievement.

Masonry and Carpentry
Daddy A. does the drilling
I have a weakness in this part. As of now, I don’t have an idea on how to prepare concrete mix. Though there are some instructional videos on the net, doing it in actual is still different. Whenever Papa visited us, I used to ask him to make the masonry and carpentry works.

Plumbing
Leaks on a sink, lavatory or toilet bowl, drips in a faucet, changing shower knobs and fixing broken water pipes are the most common plumbing problems in every household. Looking for a plumber and someone to assist him is quite a problem for me who works full time.

Painting
This year, Mommy and I agreed to change the paint of our home. Though I can hire someone to do it, I don’t have enough time to supervise the workers. With this, I decided to have the task on my own. Though I can only do it during weekends, I know I can finish it naman kahit papano. All you need is to know the basic mixing of paint and how to apply and re-apply it on the part you need to paint.

Last holidays, Papa told me that having simple DIY tools at home like a drill, saw, pliers, hammer, vice grip, and crew drivers is all you need to complete the different tasks mentioned above.

Though I am not an expert in the above-mentioned skills, my knowledge of the basics is more than enough to fix simple things at home.

Before I forgot, I haven't included baby-sitting, laundry, crafting, and house cleaning in the list. But I think you may skip cleaning, and even save time, if there are industrial cleaning services uk available in your place.

How about you?

What other skills do you think every Dad at home should know?

Movie Sharing: Eddie the Eagle


Rio Olympics has recently ended and in connection to this, I just watched a movie about Winter Olympics – Eddie the Eagle. This is a true to life story of Eddie Edwards, an Olympic Ski Jumper.


Eddie-the-Eagle-Movie-Poster-2
Photo Source: OXSTU
Since the age of 10, Eddie wanted to participate in joining the Olympic games. He kept on practicing in various events but fails miserably.

On his teenage years, he gave up joining the Summer Olympics in exchange of skiing in the winter Olympics. Though he is good at it, he was rejected by the British Olympics officials. Because of it, ventures into another event – ski jumping since the country hasn’t participated in this event for 6 decades already.

He went to a training camp in Germany and self-trained. After having success in the 15-meter jump, he was injured on his first try in the 40-meter. Bronson Peary (Hugh Jackman) discouraged him in continuing his becoming Olympic Jumper but Eddie is full of spirit to fulfill his dream.

Eddie knew that Peary was a former Olympic champion and asked him to be his trainer. The 1988 Winter Olympics will start soon and Eddie needs to make just one jump to qualify for the said game. He landed on the 38 meters. However, the British Olympic officials decided to change the rule and need to jump at least 61 meters. This is to avoid Eddie from joining the team.

With full of determination, Eddie decided to continue his training. He landed exactly on 61 meters on the practice. Unfortunately, during the official game, Eddie falls and disqualified. He returned home with a feeling of devastated and decided to work for his father. One day, he receives a letter that his practice jump is a valid one making him eligible for the Winter Olympics.

Eddie talked Peary about the decision but he was discouraged to continue because he will make a complete fool of himself and his country if he continues. Still, with full of determination, Eddie decided to join the Winter Olympics.

He placed last in the 70-meter jump landed on 60.5-meter mark but this sets a new British record. He became famous and was known as “Eddie the Eagle”. He decided to make the 90-meter jump where he never tried before. Though he landed last, again he sets a new British record. He was cheered by millions of spectators around the globe. He was eventually accepted by the British Olympic officials afterward.

Though he didn’t win a medal in the Winter Olympics, he received a heroes welcome as he returned home.

The movie shows us that if you dream of something, always keep the determination on fire and never give-up.

By the way, I like one of the songs played in the movie entitled Jump by Van Halen. This is the song played when Peary made the 90-meter jump. Listening to such song using a nice audio system will definitely make you dance with the music. It is better to use speakon cables to make the audio quality better.

Have you watched this movie too?

What is Your Interior Design Style?


It is more than half a year since we had a "major" rearrangement on our interior. New sofa set, dining table, and curtains. We are planning on having another rearrangement. There are also plans before that haven’t materialized due to busy schedules and made-to-order items in our online shoppe.

Curtains are constantly changed every month while sofa seat covers are done every two months. Since we only have two sets of seat covers, I made another one over the weekend. Next project will be curtains. We still have lots of fabrics at home for this one.

Our Sofa Set

Though there are plans in mind, I cannot think of ways on how to do it and what should be the first thing on the list. All I have in mind, for now, is to maximize our home and use some areas for another purpose.

For example, in the kitchen, placing shelves or racks under the counter is feasible. This can be used to store pans and pots. The same thing can be also made under the stairs for my tools. Since I already have a Bosch DIY impact drill set making these is not a problem. I can make shelves or racks under the kitchen counter as storage for pots and pans. The same can be also made under the stairs as storage for my tools.

We also have lots of picture frames bought in Divisoria but until now, none of it is hanging on the walls. I just wanted to have a repainting on the walls first before placing the frames.

Anyways, if you are trying to have an interior décor or arrangements at your place, you may take the interior design quiz and you might get an idea on how to decorate your home. Just visit the link: http://blog.nextdayblinds.com/blog/2016/7/22/whats-your-interior-design-style.html

Shabby Chic

I got the Shabby Chic design. Romantic and vintage-inspired styles are two things you appreciate. Decor in your home should have a quaint, cottage-esque feel with rosy tones throughout. Furniture and window coverings that look distressed, yet elegant, will make your home feel cozy and comfortable.

Do you have plans of re-decorating your home?

Unboxing ASUS Zenfone Selfie


This is the 2nd ASUS product that I will share - a cell phone.

I am not into a high-end gadgets that most of my phone lasts for years before I change into a new unit. The last time I had a new phone, or should I say we - Mommy and me, was almost two years ago.

Last week, I asked Mommy if she wanted to have a new tablet. She declined and pick a new phone instead. This is part of an anniversary gift for her. Then she asked me if I wanted to have a new gadget too. I simply smiled with bright eyes which means definitely YES.

ASUS Zenfone Selfie

Just like what I said, I am not considering if the gadget is in high-end, pricey, or cozy. As long as the specifications are great I can live with it. When it comes to brand, I want to try other brands instead of having the same brand so I can also compare and will make me help decide what brand to buy next.

With all the choices I ended picking the ASUS Zenfone Selfie.

Here are the features that helped me decide to pick this phone.

Storage
ASUS Zenfone Selfie has a huge internal memory of 32GB (expandable up to 256GB via a memory card). This storage capacity is already enough for me to save music, movies, photos and install games.

Camera

Rear Camera with Dual-tone LED Flash
The Asus Zenfone Selfie has a 13MP with led flash, both rear (f/2.0, 28mm,laser autofocus, dual-LED flash) and front f/2.2, 1080p, autofocus, dula-LED flash), which makes you not to worry what camera are you going to use especially when taking selfies.

Front Camera with Dual-tone LED Flash

Processor
ASUS Zenfone Selfie is powered by Android Lollipop 5.0.2 and 3GB RAM and 1.5GHz Octa-core processor making is faster compared to my old unit. According to some articles this can be upgraded to Adroid 6.0 Marshmallow.

Screen
ASUS Zenfone Selfie Screen (Tempered glass screen protector not included)
The 5.5-inch (1080x1920 pixel) display screen is vivid which allows you to enjoy viewing photos as well as watching movies.

Battery
The ASUS Zenfone Selfie comes with a removable 3000mAH lithium-polymer battery. This means that you are going to enjoy more time with your phone before needing a recharge. For example, a 12% remaining in the battery can last up to about 5 hours idle time.
