Online Shopping for Kitchen Appliances: Always Find the Best Deals For You

We are in a challenging economic situation, and regardless of what we require, the majority of us are looking for the best deals possible. This includes shopping for kitchen equipment such as air fryers, induction cooktops, coffee makers, toasters, and blenders, as well as other convenience products and, more importantly, smart kitchen gadgets that are both efficient and energy-efficient. None of these items are inexpensive, especially for those on a tight budget, but if you know where to look online, you can find some fantastic deals on everything you need to complete your kitchen.


When you purchase kitchen equipment online, you can save anywhere from 30% to 50%, and sometimes even up to 75%! You just must have the patience to scout and compare prices wisely. Do not buy the first thing you see when shopping. To ensure that you are obtaining the best deals, comparison shop. And obtaining the best deals doesn't always imply getting the best pricing.

When it comes to shipping and delivery costs. Remember that you will have to pay for shipping and handling, so read the shipping policies of each store carefully. So, look for an online store that charges a low delivery rate for your product to arrive. Online stores occasionally provide vouchers and store discounts, so keep an eye out for those as well. All discounts and special offers that you can use on your order will be the best!


Check out all of the payment options available to you; online payments are almost certainly available. Make sure the website you're shopping from has plenty of security protections to protect you from identity theft if you're making cashless online payments. If you're hesitant about using a credit card or making an internet purchase, search for cash-on-delivery, or COD.



I recently visited the AllHome Official Store after seeing it posted on Facebook, and I was ecstatic to find all of the amazing deals! Right at the outset of the 'BER months season, they started promoting discounts. What's great about this is that you can purchase online as well as go to your local AllHome Store and shop there! You have access to anything you require for your home, both online and in their stores. The AllHome Bataan branch is the closest AllHome Store to my area, which is an hour away by car.

I like how their website is very simple to use and how easy it is to find things because everything is organized by category.

Ajinomoto and Municipality of Cainta partner to fight malnutrition with Mag-Pinggang Pinoy® Tayo! Program




The Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) Group and the Municipality of Cainta held a hybrid ceremonial contract signing event last December 3, 2021 to mark their commitment to strengthen the Mag-Pinggang Pinoy® Tayo! (MPPT) program in a bid to address malnutrition in the country. The event was held in Banquet Hall East, Filinvest East, Cainta and broadcasted in a virtual meeting.

MPPT, a program launched by APC Group in 2018, aims to promote the practice of Pinggang Pinoy®, an easy-to-understand healthy food plate guide for Filipinos developed by the Department of Science and Technology – Food and Nutrition Research Institute.

“This program embodies our Nutrition Commitment towards extending the healthy life expectancy of Filipinos. We also recognize the importance of our collaboration with the local government unit of Cainta. Together, we will create an ecosystem that would make the MPPT program effective and sustainable,” said APC Group President Tsutomu Nara during the event.

The Ajinomoto Group’s Nutrition Commitment is to help extend the healthy life expectancy of 1 billion people by 2030 utilizing its expertise in Amino Science. This allows the company to support delicious salt reduction using umami, provide products to contribute to people's wellness and provide health and nutrition improvement information as well as easy recipes/menus.

Joining APC President Nara in representing the company is Mr. Hironori Aoki, Director, Marketing, Sales and Public Relations. Meanwhile, the Municipality of Cainta was represented by Hon. Mayor Johnielle Keith “Kit” Nieto and its Municipal Health Officer Dr. Edgardo Gonzaga. Also in attendance were representatives of MPPT partners and supporters: UPLB-MPPT Project Team led by Dr. Angelina DR. Felix of the Institute of Human Nutrition and Food- College of Human Ecology, UPLB; Dr. Pauline Jean Rossel-Ubial, former Secretary of Health; and Ms. Sarah Coe, Redscope Communications CEO.

“Thank you Ajinomoto for this opportunity, for having decided to give back, and for your willingness and your generosity in providing us everything we need. There is actually a lot more to do for us just to make sure that the people are always healthy.” said Hon. Mayor Johnielle Keith “Kit” Nieto in his address to the company and all the people that make MPPT possible.

The APC Group, Cainta, and its MPPT advocates are determined to combat malnutrition especially amid the ongoing pandemic where food systems have been disrupted and have continued to affect vulnerable groups like children. In line with this, the drafted MPPT program in Cainta consists of the following: (1) online capacity building of community health workers, (2) online nutrition education of homemakers, and (3) one-meal dietary supplementation among identified undernourished children for 120 days.

“This is truly one of the most important projects of the APC Group,” said Hironori Aoki, APC Group Director of Marketing, Sales and Public Relations. “Ajinomoto is not only a food company but a solution providing company guided by the Ajinomoto Group Creating Shared Value (ASV) with a mission to help resolve emerging social issues such as malnutrition through thoughtful initiatives.”

How to Renew Your PRC License Online without CPD Credits 2021


At this time of pandemic, you can renew your PRC license with partial or no Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits or units, just like I did! 

After three years, my professional license will expire this year, in 2021. And, because of a lack of finances and time before I was hired, I haven't attended any CPD courses since then. As the virus spread, all government offices closed their doors, but online transactions remained open. 

Despite the fact that there were options to apply for online renewal of such a license, I was unable to proceed owing to travel restrictions until I opted to schedule an appointment for the PRC ID pick-up on December 1, 2021 on October 16, 2021.

Check out the vlog here and see my experience renewing my PRC professional license at this time of pandemic! 





Visit https://online.prc.gov.ph to learn more about LERIS| Professional Regulation Commission.

1. Make an account and fill out all of the required information about your education and other vital details from your PRC license. 
2. You must also upload a photo that corresponds to the requirements; this photo will be utilized and affixed to the PRC card when it is renewed. There are instructions on how to upload photos and what types of photos to use. If the photo does not meet the requirements, the system will reject it.

NOTE: PRC license renewals without full CPD or incomplete units will only be accepted until December 2021.

3. Check the available booking schedule for a specific PRC Satellite office near you; certain areas and regions in the Philippines offer door-to-door PRC card delivery; in my case, the nearest PRC satellite office is Robinson's Starmills in Pampanga, which is a two-hour bus ride away.

4. Pay your corresponding renewal fees; for Nursing its P450 for another three years via Paymaya payment + P8 Paymaya processing fee. 

5. Download and print your scheduled date and time of visit and present it on the date of your visit, do not forget to bring your old PRC license card as they will ask for it for validation. 

6. Arrive early at the satellite office so you may observe and assess the surroundings, as well as how packed or sparse the space will be. Remember, because to the present Covid virus, social distancing and health precautions are required. 

When I inquired if I might forward the form I had with me, I was accommodated 30 minutes sooner than my appointed time.

What Kinds of Disposable Gloves Are Used in Healthcare

Disposable gloves have become the key component for healthcare workers. The use of disposable gloves in protecting hands from infecting diseases during healthcare works easily and effectively. Because of the various purposes under various conditions in every setting, gloves have evolved into many different types, and understanding these types thoroughly will achieve better safety and use for both patients and healthcare workers.



In healthcare, three types of gloves are commonly used: examination, surgical, and utility or heavy-duty household gloves.

1. Gloves use for examination

Workers wear these gloves when performing routine tasks that require them to come into contact with mucous membranes and skin. These gloves are typically made of vinyl, a synthetic material that is inexpensive and easy to produce. While vinyl is inelastic (does not stretch as well as latex), the gloves are often made to be loose-fitting and easily removed. In some cases, higher-quality examination gloves made of latex or nitrile are required; these can be purchased at medical supply stores in most cities. Keep in mind that all examination gloves are extremely thin and should not be recycled back for reuse.

2. Gloves for surgery 

During some infectious medical procedures and surgical procedures, these gloves should be worn. Workers use them for all procedures, including contact with deep-seated tissue beneath the skin. Latex rubber is the best material for surgical gloves because it has a natural elasticity, sensitivity, and durability, as well as a comfortable feel. However, it is more expensive than vinyl and has a serious latex allergy problem, so a new synthetic rubber-like material known as "nitrile" has been developed mow. Its properties are similar to those of latex. Nitrile gloves have a lower risk of causing allergic reactions. Surgical gloves, unlike examination gloves, can be reused; however, this will most likely be on a case-by-case basis. This type of glove must be carefully checked for tears or cuts during the manufacturing process to avoid contamination during the use process.


3. Household utility or heavy-duty gloves 

They should be worn when handling and operating medical equipment, instruments, or other machines; cleaning contaminated waste; and disinfecting all contaminated equipment. They can be used, for example, when handling used instruments and equipment that may have come into contact with blood or bodily fluids, as well as when handling medical waste and linens. Utility Latex Exam Gloves are made of thick rubber as a result of this. As a result of this, these gloves are much less sensitive, have good durability, and provide maximum protection as a barrier. While these gloves are often less flexible and may cause discomfort to workers.

How to Style and Care for Virgin Weave Hair and How to Keep It Safe

Virgin hair weaves are especially popular among women who enjoy changing up their hairstyles on a regular basis. The essentials for short-haired women's go-to method of sporting instantly long, luscious hair. In addition to providing styling benefits, weaves protect natural hair from harsh dyeing chemicals and damaging extreme heat. As a result, these have become a widely popular option throughout the country, worn by celebrities and ordinary citizens alike.



Many women prefer Malaysian hair weave because it allows them to blend in with their natural hair. It has a natural, healthy low luster, as opposed to synthetic hair's clearly artificial sheen. Because it is made of real hair, the weave can be washed, conditioned, and styled just like natural hair. Furthermore, virgin quality weaves, such as those provided by hair vendors  are stronger. This is due primarily to their retained cuticles, layers of overlapping cells that safeguard and provide your hair shaft its radiance.

Even high-quality virgin hair weave, however, cannot be fully utilized if it is not properly suited to natural hair. When hair is pulled too tightly, it can be painful, which is a common complaint when applying the weave. Expert stylists advise women to have their weaves loosened or removed if they experience any discomfort, as this can lead to traction alopecia.


Traction alopecia is an inflammatory condition that occurs when the hair on your scalp is pulled tighter. When your body detects an attack, it sends inflammatory cells to the affected area, where scarring attempts to heal it. Scarring suppresses hair growth, resulting in baldness. You can browse more Lace Front Wigs products to find something that suits your style and preferences.



Weaves are perfectly safe to wear when applied professionally. Nonetheless, natural hair bundles require a rest. Weaves should only be worn for a few days, and the scalp should be left alone for a few days before refitting the weaves so the hair can rest in its natural state. Overdoing weaves or wearing them for longer periods of time than recommended can certainly harm natural hair.

Weaves provide women with much-needed styling versatility. Concurrently, weaves help natural hair grow out healthy by shielding it from the rigors of styling. When the weaves are removed, a woman can enjoy her lush new hair with proper care.

Ben&Ben push the mental health discussion forward with “Lunod” music video

The MV is accompanied by an EP release featuring multiple versions of the track, and an exclusive launch of Lunod-themed café




It doesn’t always have to be sink or swim when it comes to mental health.

Ben&Ben chronicle the experience of drowning in torrential distress and anxiety on the music video of their new single “Lunod.” Directed by award-winning filmmaker Jerrold Tarog (Heneral Luna, Sana Dati), the visual narrative pushes the discussion forward with its metaphorical depiction of individuals trying to keep their head above water and find their way out of a dark, harrowing tunnel.




“The music video is a deeply introspective and symbolic interpretation of the song, which is all tied in together from the concept and writing, down to the location,” lead vocalist, guitarist and Lunod chief songwriter Paolo Benjamin explains. “In the video, the song is narrated as the band, with Zild and Juan Karlos, move deeper and deeper into the tunnel slowly—losing breath, then in the latter half taking powerful strides to move out of it. This signals a ‘rebirth’ into a new, more mature version of the self.”

The cinematic visuals were shot at the El Deposito water reservoir, an underground location known for its historical significance to the events that lead to the Philippine Revolution, Philippine-American War, and World War II. 




“Lunod” serves as the band’s reunion project with Jerrold Tarog, who helmed the music video for their 2018 track “Susi,” off the historical epic drama, Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral. “We love collaborating with visionaries in their fields, and so it was a dream working with him,” the acclaimed folk-pop group reveals.

Ahead of the music video release, the nine-piece collective dropped a live acoustic performance of “Lunod” last month. The version, which features collaborators Zild and juan karlos, strips down the bluesy, classic rock arrangements of the original for a more subdued take. The intimate interpretation of the song is part of an exclusive EP release featuring multiple iterations of “Lunod” in various formats, including an extended version of the track.

“The multiple versions for ‘Lunod’ were intended to bring a full listening experience to our listeners; for them to hear what more could be brought out of the song,” Ben&Ben shares in a statement. “We decided to release for streaming the acoustic jam of ‘Lunod,’ the extended version in the music video.”




Aside from the EP, ‘Lunod’ received a remix treatment from hip-hop artist Zelijah, who channeled his struggles with mental health on the production level, and even added a rap verse to convey the mental strains that he went through during the pandemic, and after being diagnosed as bipolar. The “Bipolar remix” of the track gives Zelijah the opportunity to put his own character into the song, and reinterpret it with ethereal sonic elements that blend trap, hip-hop, modern electronica, and rock music genres.

Apart from the ‘Lunod’ EP, Ben&Ben and its label, Sony Music Philippines, recently opened a Lunod-themed café at Latitude Bean+Bar in Malate, Manila as part of Ben&Ben’s Kuwaderno Pop-Up Café activities, which will run from November 25-27. The pop-up café includes a Lunod art installation inspired by Zelijah’s Bipolar Remix, as well as other art activities related to mental health.

The Kuwaderno Pop-Up Café features several exclusive activities for Liwanag and ordinary folks to immerse themselves into Ben&Ben’s critically acclaimed album and upcoming digital concert. The two other exclusive pop-ups are located at Jess + Pat’s in Maginhawa, QC, and Kale Café in Fairview, QC.

Music fans can also purchase tickets to Kuwaderno: A Ben&Ben Online Concert directly at the three pop-up locations in Metro Manila. Set to redefine the concert-going experience with the biggest headline concert of their career, Ben&Ben’s upcoming digital concert will be integrating live music performance with multiple creative disciplines such as theatre, dance, orchestra, and technology to create an audio-visual spectacle like no other.

Ben&Ben’s “Lunod,” featuring Zild and juan karlos, is out now on all streaming platforms worldwide via Sony Music Philippines. Watch the music video here.

“Lunod” collaborators Zild and juan karlos are also set to join Ben&Ben on Kuwaderno: A Ben&Ben Online Concert, happening on December 05, 2021 (Sun) from 8pm to 11pm. Get your tickets here.

Written in both English and Filipino, the series is made for childhood care providers and parents to help their kids learn important values in life. The ‘Little Life Lessons on’ catalog contains inspirational stories that depict kindness, obedience, respect, and love, among many others.

 

The motivational imprint also takes pride of its Family Bible Illustrated edition, which has 365 pages of bible stories, meditations, and prayers for the whole family to reflect on together, and The Comic Book Bible, which offers a treasury of stories, known and loved by generations of readers.

Burrin’s Welcome To The Mass, a beautifully illustrated book that ‘explains the Mass by linking the liturgy to scenes from the Gospels.’ 

 

The classic and new titles are available at the Guiding Light official website, https://www.guidinglight.com.ph.

How To Choose The Right Waist Trainer Corset


Waist trainers are becoming a fashion statement as well as a craze. Celebrities using them and endorsing them on social media are a key part of how the waist trainer is known to the general public. If you decide to get one for yourself, keep in mind how and what to get. 


Waist trainers are intended to strengthen your physical body structure by focusing on your core. It's the same as putting on a corset. How to get the best waist trainer for women?



The overbust and underbust waist trainers are the two styles of waist trainers available in the market today.


Overbust helps you maintain a healthier body posture by reducing and preventing upper back and shoulder strain. As a result, large body types with big boobs have superior support. Although, as compared to the underbust style of waist trainer, this is the least popular. Plus size waist trainers are available in a variety of styles and designs, allowing plus size women to find the perfect fit.






The underbust waist trainer is the most popular of the two; it reaches below your breasts and gives you comfort, mobility, and breathing ease. It's simple to put on and fits under your clothes. When it comes to price, underbust waist trainers are less expensive than overbust waist trainers. Check out the deals from Black Friday shapewear deals and get your desired waist trainer ready for the holiday season.




What to look forward to when wearing a waist trainer: 

Varying compression settings will shape you in all appropriate areas when usefully worn as an undergarment, it can also be worn outside undergarment as it gives one a distinct fashion statement. 

It will elevate your butt and breasts and sculpt, contour, and manage your tummy, hips, and thighs like a second skin. 

With its seamless base that will keep its fit all day, it shaves off inches in minutes and makes you snug for evening outfits or everyday workwear. 
You'll appear leaner as a result of it. Everywhere. It will lift and firm your body in all the correct areas, and no one will be able to tell what's underneath. Get smooth, bulge-free lines with your waist trainer!

Is there a minimum or maximum length for a nail? This, in turn, will be determined by your everyday activities. I occasionally let my nails grow long without being trimmed or styled, leaving them raw and unmanicured. With daily housework, particularly in the kitchen, I occasionally find it difficult to keep my nails at the same length. I normally like square-shaped nails because they are easier to manage for me, and I only have round and pointed nails on rare occasions.


What I do to keep my nails long and healthy. 


Do not bite your nails, and I never do. 

  • Biting your nails can result in sharp edges, unevenness, and an unhealthy appearance. People who habitually bite their nails have been linked to stress, worry, and even health issues.



I always make time to shape and trim them properly. 

- When I have time to trim my cuticles, I always have my cuticle remover handy. This will appear to be neat, tidy, and even. Your nails will look healthier if you remove any dry skin or the cuticle.

Take care of your nails. 

-I constantly protect my nails against sharp items, therefore I never use them to open a bottle of Coke or anything like that.

Hands and nails should be moisturized. 

-After cooking or doing laundry, I always moisturize my hands and nails to keep my skin and nails from drying out and chipping. Hand creams and lotions that are high in Vitamin E are the greatest way to moisturize.

Extra protection for your hands and nails.

-If you can work and protect your hands and nails by wearing fabric or rubber gloves please do. 

Colors you like on your nails 

-If you're going to paint your nails, use the best and most eco-friendly brands you can find. For my nails, I prefer neutral hues. I enjoy it with colors, but it isn't eye-catching, especially for regular use. On exceptional occasions, I choose bold and vivid nail paints.
