Tips on How to Make House Cleaning a Fun Activity


Mothers are probably one of the busiest people here on earth. Their schedule starts early in the morning, getting the kids ready to school and it continues throughout the whole day. This is one of the reasons why skills in time management is very important. If not for proper planning, it might be impossible to finish all the scheduled tasks for the day.

Keeping the home clean is another activity that is often regarded as a mom’s responsibility. While most fathers would be in charge in repairs and major housework, mothers on the other hand are tasked to perform house cleaning. Of course sweeping the floors and making the beds are a daily routine but it will be best to do a general house cleaning at least once a week.

Grazie Productive Pinoy!


“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.” – Paul J. Meyer

The quotation best explains the reason why Productive Pinoy, authored by Yeng Remulla is selling like hotcakes in the market today. His witty and clever method of discussing the ways and means on how to reawaken and recreate old Filipino traits that would bring significant results is the catch to gain more readers. The book is very educational for the young minds and adults as well.

Excellent Yet Economical Bifocals


Poor eyesight is a genetic condition that runs in our family. The four of us, me, my husband and two children are having poor eye health. Thus, all of us are wearing bifocals.  We often remind each other to “don’t expect your world to look bright if you are not wearing your pair of eyeglasses”, lol.

My husband and I being at the prime of our lives were both prescribed by our optometrist to wear Progressive glasses for comfort, using only one pair for distance and reading. However, my husband made his lenses photochromic in order for him not to wear shades when working outdoors.  Our two sons were also both nearsighted and astigmatic just like ours. We also make sure that our lenses be on an anti-glare, because all of us are always infront of the computer for long hours too.

Important Things to Consider when Buying a Home

As we are eyeing into purchasing an owned family abode. Me and my husband conducted a family meeting to discuss and hear ideas from our two sons to consolidate our plans of where and what type of house do we need to buy. It will be a permanent dwelling so we need to assent to the most important things to look for and consider when buying a home.

We were happy to know that our children agree with our ideas of an ideal home. We opt to buy a house that will fit the family needs, interests and wants. Which is most preferred a high rise dwelling or a single-detached house and lot? Majority voted for the single-detached house with a spacious lot in front and back. We all want to have a small backyard garden to do mini-farming, as we are all enthusiasts of agriculture and taking care of house pets at the same time.

We are planning to buy for a home that is uniquely designed to fit our wishes and budget. We prefer a green home that is energy-efficient and is more comfortable and healthier. The vicinity in which it is located is also a priority. A home equipped with eco-friendly structure and appliances. Living in a neighborhood close and in touch with nature will surely promote a healthy lifestyle. What about you, what are the things you look for when buying a home?
