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.”

JOE & THE ANCHOR RELEASES POWERFUL PIANO BALLAD ‘LEAVING YOU NOW’





Indie-pop band Joe & The Anchor release new piano ballad ‘Leaving You Now’ - an emotional break-up song about experiencing first love, to grow apart and realizing there is nothing left in the relationship worth fighting for. The singer Joakim's powerful yet emotional voice goes straight to the heart. 


“Leaving You Now has been with us for a long time. We’ve all been in that situation, when the first real love of your life turns into your first heartbreak. We tried to really capture that feeling when we wrote this song” - JATA about the song. Listen here


The single is the second one from their upcoming album ‘Coming of Age’ which explores the feelings of growing up, the fragility of life, love, and taking things for granted. Following a difficult few month when the band members had to experience the harsh reality of loss, Joe & The Anchor decided to process the events through music. During a hectic and focused period of time, the band wrote and recorded what would later develop into a full-length album, which will be released during the spring of 2022. 

The passionate vocals made me listen over and over again as it draws me to the captivating lyrics, although it will leaves the listener a heartbreaking sense of feeling. I sense how passionate, powerful and all in full emotions!  

I am glad that I had the chance to meet and greet Joe and the Anchor and was able to listen to them as their share their experience with us in making the music. I hope to watch Joe, Victor, Ruben, and Robin perform for the Filipino fans here in the Philippines, soon! 

The song got me LSS while posting this and I wanted to share with you all the lyrics of the single 'Leaving You Know'. 

Why Am I, Still Caving In

Why Can’t I, Get Rid Of It,

Our Long Nights I’m Thinking About You,

Maybe If, I Didn’t Know,

Just How Much It Hurts To Go,

I Could Have Put This Behind Me


Chorus:

Cause Baby I Don’t Know What To Say,

Cause I Know I’m Losing Any Way,

But I’m Just So Tired Of, This Enemy Inside,

So Darling, I’m Leaving You Now



Why Am I, Back Here Again

Why Can’t I, Just Let Her In,

My Long Nights Without You Beside Me, Oh No

Why Can’t I, Make Up My Mind,

Always Leaving You Behind,

Still I Keep Thinking About You


Chorus:

Cause Baby I Don’t Know What To Say,

Cause I Know I’m Losing Any Way,

But I’m Just So Tired Of, This Enemy Inside,

So Darling, I’m Leaving You Now


Cause Baby I Don’t Know What To Say,

Cause I Know I’ll Lose You Any Way,

But I’m Just So Tired Of, This Enemy Inside,

So Darling, I’m Leaving You Now


Darling, I’m Leaving You Now


Darling, 

I’m Leaving

You Now

The incredibly high votes show how engaged and supportive their fan base 'Sailors' is! The band also played Sweden's largest digital festival ‘Låt Live Leva’ as well as for TEDx (watch snippets of both performances here).

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.
