Domex: 1 Million Clean Toilets

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

I remember during my half a year stay in Beijing, I would constantly dread going to the bathroom during school hours.  Not only are most of the toilets there on the floor but they stink so bad even if there were cleaners every so often.

One time, the attendant saw my facial reaction when I entered the bathroom.  She brazenly said out loud in Mandarin (thinking I couldn't understand what she was saying) *Where do you find a toilet that is not stinky?* since I understood what she was saying I said out loud *In my house in the Philippines!* She looked surprised.  

Having an OC mom, you can say that I have set certain standards when it comes to a clean bathrooms.  Yes, I confess that I use a multiple of products for cleaning the bathroom.  Mind you, I know how to clean a bathroom.  There was a class in ICA that taught us how to clean the whole house.  Let's just say that I was very attentive then and I've kept those learnings with me until now.



I confess that I have never used #DomexPH before.  I know the brand and see it in my supermarket run.  I have held them in my hands and almost put it in my cart, but I hesitate and return it on the shelf.  I am what you call a *creature of habit*.  I like using products that I have tried and tested - I rarely try a new product just for kicks, yeah - that's me.  So with me, a sample really means a lot - it can make or break me with a *love* of a product.




Last week, I learned something new and that is that #DomexPH is already three products in one.  It's a thick bleach that does the work of three different products that I buy individually.  It's a toilet cleaner, an all around cleanser, and a bleach!



 I also learned about #DomexPH's *1 million Clean Toilets* campaign.  It totally makes sense to clean toilets - because let's face it - it's not the cleanest part of the house.  It's nice too to be able to start in our homes - to make our family members aware that proper sanitation starts at home, with us!





REUSABLE Bags for SALE!!

Monday, November 21, 2016

Years ago - 2013 to be exact.  I won a prize - and the prize were two (2) pieces of this #BagsGoReusable bags - I won it via Tita K's Live Love Lolz.  It made such a good impression on me that I brought it with me to Tokyo (which I gave to my friend She).  Since I was left with a lone piece, I decided to contact the brand to buy more - and I did.  Since I soooo love the product, I think after a couple of months, I bought another batch - and even gave it to my friends for Christmas.  



I have at least one piece with me in my bag.  I've instructed my yayas to keep one in their bags when we go out.  I bring ALL my #BagsGoReusable bags whenever I travel (local and international).  It has been Kailee's diaper bag since we started bringing her along whenever we travel (that was in 2013!)  So imagine the YEARS I have been using this product.

Two things that I love about this bag:
First - you can fold it FLAT - you don't need to roll it in a certain manner.  All you need is to fold it and put it in your bag - it saves a LOT of space - BELIEVE ME.

Second - the material is the one used in parachutes.  So unlike the non woven material of most *eco* bags, this does NOT easily tear when used often.  It's DURABLE.

I used to think that paying around P240.00 for a piece was quite hefty - but you know what - I've been using my #BagsGoResusable bags since 2013 - and till now, they're still very strong and reliable.  Now, that's the kind of quality I believe in.



Last Friday, I saw a post of the distributor online.  She was doing a mega SALE on the bags - now, she's selling off her stocks at an unbelievable price of only P150.00 - I swear, it was such a steal that I immediately decided that I wanted to get 15 pieces more to myself.  Yes, that's how much I believe in the product that I am willing to buy fifteen - yes you read that right - 15 MORE pieces to keep for myself.

Since I believe in the product and personally use it on a daily basis - I thought, why not help my friend sell a product that I have so much belief in.



So here I am - pitching to you guys to buy this reusable bag.  They cost Php150.00 and I swear, they're the best kind out there.  It's washable and doesn't tear.  Imagine how tough a parachute is - that's how touch the bag is!!

You can order through me, there is NO MINIMUM quantity as long as you can pick up in Quezon City.  Colors are all available.  Shipping charges apply depending on the area.

Please do send me an email ( candishhh@gmail.com )with your name and contact number if you're interested, I'll do my very best to get in touch with you as soon as I can.

I hope you can support my friend.

Thanks again for reading and I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Merry Christmas!

Jun: The goodness of an Uber Driver

Wednesday, November 09, 2016

So, when we got back to Manila - it was midnight.  I was trying to call the driver assigned to us but both his numbers were not reachable.  To make the long story short - we didn't have anyone picking us up from the airport.

So what's the solution?  Get an Uber.

Unfortunately, all I saw on my app were UberX vehicles - we won't fit.  We had to get an UberBlack.  The map on the app was empty - there were no UberBlack cars around.  There was a message to check back after a few minutes.

I tried to book via Grab but it was always small cars available.

Then lo and behold - a lone UberBlack car - so I booked him immediately.  On his profile was the car make - Ford Everest.  I asked my Panget and he said - we'd fit.  So we waited for about 10 minutes and our car arrived.

I'm very used to riding Uber.  So I was just relaxed - while my Panget was anxious.  The ride was very smooth - our Uber driver was very careful in driving.  When we were near the house, my Panget started chatting him up and he was very nice.  We got home safely and thanked him.  He was telling us that he lived near Terminal 3, but decided to turn on the Uber app and there we were.  I was telling him thank you because he was a lifesaver - if he didn't turn on his app, we won't be able to go home *safely*.  Before he left, I asked for his name - he said his name is Jun.

At about 2:30am, I noticed that my other cellphone (XiaoMi Redmi) was missing.  I looked everywhere in the house and nada.  I called my Sun number and went on a hunting the vibrate sound spree and nothing.  So I finally decided to send Jun - a message:


So last Friday - my driver met with Jun along Shaw Blvd to get my cellphone.

THERE ARE STILL GOOD PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY!!

Thank you Jun - super duper!  May God bless you more pa!! :)


Thank you Jun and THANK YOU UBER!

Tokyo Diaries: Car Pick Up Service by Mizo

Tuesday, November 08, 2016

Whenever I travel with kids, I try my best not to get stressed and so most of the time, I arrange for a car pick up service (to and from the airport), that way - I won't need to worry if we can fit the bus or what time we'll arrive at our destination and etc.  Most will say I'm maarte - but I say, I'm practical and smart.  Hahaha!!

During my last 2 trips to Tokyo - I've had different car service pick ups, one was Tokyo Asahi Kotsu and last year was Yen.  Both have been very good - it was just that with Yen, we had other passengers with us during our trip back to the airport - I assumed it was private, but I guess - he was just trying to make money, but that's okay.

This trip - I asked Yen how much he charged for a pick up, he sent me a reply via Line Messenger that it was JPY15,000.00.  To be honest, I expected that much since he charges at least JPY3,000.00 per head per way.  But I made sure to ask around for a lower rate, so I emailed here and there.  The rates I got were from JPY18,000.00 to JPY11,000.00, and as you guessed - I got the JPY11,000.00

The good thing with this company - the Tokyo Airporter, was that you didn't need to pay in advance.  Well, you can - via credit card or you can pay in cash upfront when you get dropped off (at your destination) by the car service.  The only risk was that - you might not get picked up at all.  But it's Japan, I would think most people are good natured and so for sure, you'll get picked up.

When we arrived in Haneda Airport and got our backs, we were waking toward the arrival area.  My Panget saw the sign that held my name.  We approached the man holding the sign, he greeted us in  English.  I was glad!  He took over pushing our cart from my Panget and was very nice and chatty.  He told us to wait for him at the car park's entrance.  We waited about 5 minutes and he was there with his mini van.  He did all the heavy lifting, carrying the luggages to the car.

His mini van was very comfortable - he offered us water and even had a portable wifi for us to use!  It took us about 35 minutes from the airport to our drop off address.  On the way, we were talking about how the president of the Philippines just left and that how this month, he was going to Cebu to eat lechon.  Mizo is very nice and polite.  His car is clean and comfortable too.  He then handed us his card for future reference.  I liked that he was on most messaging apps - Whatsapp, WeChat, Line, Viber, Skype, KakaoTalk and Facebook.  You can even email him!

Here is his card below.  He can do pick ups in Narita or Haneda.  He said he'd be happy to welcome any of my friends.  So I'm sharing his contact details - here:




A few days after we arrived in Tokyo, I decided to ask him for his rate for a return trip to Haneda.  He gave a very reasonable rate - and so I booked him right away.  We were messaging one another via Whatsapp.

I messaged him to come pick us up at 1:00PM.  My Panget said to give allowance because he might be late.  So on the day that we were leaving, we decided to walk around instead of just waiting for our pick up.  We thought, we had a good hour just to walk the streets.  And so at 12NN we decided to stepped out of our place, I was shocked to see him outside on the street!  He was already there!  I loved that he is prompt.  When he saw us, he apologized for being early.  He said that he will wait in the car.  Hahaha..  So funny and strange that a person apologizes for being early.  I love the Japanese!  So when we came back at about 12:30-ish, I asked my Panget if he wanted to leave for the airport, I mean since the pick-up was already there - and he said yes.

So if you're worry is if Mizo will be late or if he will arrive - YES HE WILL!  He replies fast too.

Please consider him if you're going to Tokyo with kids and elders.

Good Luck!! :)

Benjamin: The good Japanese man who helped me hear Mass in Meguro

Monday, November 07, 2016

Whenever I'm out of the country, and it falls on a Sunday - I make sure to research where I can hear Sunday Mass.  Two Sundays ago, I was in Tokyo.  Last year, I heard Mass in the Franciscan Chapel Center in Rippongi and the community there was so warm.  As much as I wanted to hear Mass there, it was a bit of a distance to where I was staying.  Researching led me to St. Patrick's Church in Ikebukuro and they have a Mass schedule at 7am.

I left our place at 6:40am, I was praying hard to have a taxi swing by where I was standing and true enough, after just saying a short prayer a taxi was there.  I gave the address in by 6:55am I was at St. Patrick's Church.



At the courtyard were tables and tents, nuns cleaning and arranging stuff.  It looked like they were having an event.  I didn't mind it as I was used to those kinds of things here in Manila.  I found it odd though, that when I entered the Church, it was still dim.  I thought to myself, maybe everything will be opened and people will start coming in at 6:59am.  But I was getting a bit worried.  I noticed that I was the only one inside the Church, and another man - who went up to the altar.

I stood up and walked out to see if there were people coming in, there was none.  I looked around and saw a bulletin board - there was a sheet of paper that had the schedules for Sunday Mass.  As I looked to my right, the man who went to the altar was there - he was smiling at me.  And so I asked him if he spoke English, he said a little bit.  So I pointed to the 7:00am schedule of Sunday Mass and he gave me a shake of the head and said *No Mass, bazaar* and then pointed to the tables at the courtyard.  He even called a nun to ask (in Japanese) and the nun shook her head too.  I asked if he knew a nearby Church - and he said *You know Meguro?*, I shook my head and said I didn't.  So I said, thank you to both of them.

At that point, I realized that the only Church I knew was far away, but the good thing was that - the mass was at 9:00am, I still had time.  I needed help to get to the nearest subway, so I went to look for a nun, and found none.  Good thing, the man I spoke to was still there - he was getting ready to head out on his bike - I asked him where the nearest station was.  He went into an office to ask someone and then proceeded to tell me to follow him.  As I was following him, I thought to myself - that I think God was telling me that I needed to go to the Franciscan Chapel Center to hear Mass.  I was thinking, had I just gone to a familiar Church, I wouldn't need to wake up so early.

As we were walking, I was thanking him.  And then he suddenly blurted *We go together*.  I thought to myself, he must really needed to hear Mass early too.  So as we were walking, (he was walking fast with his bike on the side and I was trailing behind him) he then motioned for me to sit at the back of his bike.  I was shocked and said *Are you sure?* because if you know me and seen me, I'm not small - I'm quite - big.  But he insisted.  So I did.  I sat on the back portion of his bike and held onto his shoulder for support.  In my head I was sorry that I weighed so much, because for sure - he had a hard time pedaling.  But he still pedaled and pedaled.

In the middle of the bike ride, I wondered - where is this man taking me?  I blindly trusted him to lead me to a Church.  What was I thinking?!  And then I thought again - Japanese people are really nice, I'm sure he's not bad.  I think the bike ride was about 5- 10 minutes.  My thigh muscles were beginning to sore as I was holding both my feet up so I my feet won't drag on the road, I couldn't adjust as if I did, we would immediately fall.  We ventured into a small street, he then stopped and I got off the bike, he chained his bike to a bike area and said that we'd ride the train.



I didn't know what station we were at but I prepared money to pay for the train ride.  We went to a ticket machine and he punched JPY200.00, so I handed him money but he refused it.  He paid for my train ride!  We went up an elevator and when we got to the platform he pointed to the sign and said *Ikebukuro Station*.  That station was a stop away from where I was staying.  A few seconds after the train arrived and we got in.

Meguro was not nearby - it was a bit far from Ikebukuro Station.  To show you how far it was - here's an image I screen capped from Google Maps.



The ride was a bit long but it was okay, I didn't mind it as the mass transport in Japan very efficient.  I assumed that the Mass we were hearing was at 7:30am because he was in a bit of a rush.  The train ride was about 20-25 minutes and while waiting, he handed me his phone - I took it and saw that on the screen was that Sunday's readings and gospel in English.  It was really nice of him, right?  There are still good people left in this planet.

We reached the Meguro Station at 7:35am I think and while walking, he told me that going back, I would be alone because he needed to go.  I assumed this much as he was telling me to remember the route (I assumed so I can trace back where I came from).  And we walked, walked fast - until we reached a courtyard.  When we entered, he went to the statue of Mary and touched it and did a sign of the cross, he then walked in a Church with me following behind him.  We entered a dim empty Church, he then looked at me and pointed to another door.  I guess Mass was being said in a different room.  And when we entered, it was a small room - and Mass was already being said.  I sat down on the first chair that I could see while he sat on another end.

I gather, it was already the homily part and since I didn't understand Japanese, I googled parts of a Mass on my phone and silently followed.  I read the gospel again it was from Saint Luke 19:1-10.  I was thankful for technology that I was able to follow the Mass.

After communion, while I was kneeling down to say thanks to the Lord, someone touched my shoulder.  It was the man who led me to this Church in Meguro.  He said that he needed to leave and waved *bye* to me.  But before he left, I asked for his name - it was Benjamin.  I then motioned for him to wait because I wanted to take a picture of him - and he obliged.  I said my thanks to him and shook his hand.  When he left, I closed my eyes and I started crying.  I couldn't explain why but I was crying (too bad) I didn't have tissue, so I was wiping my tears using my hands!

This is Benjamin.



In a foreign country, where everything is not familiar, one thing is - and that is the goodness in a person.  Benjamin didn't know me, we couldn't even have a straight conversation, but he was nice enough to bring me to a Church in Meguro to hear Sunday Mass.  The Lord is truly alive in this man.  I kept on thinking, why did he choose to help me?  He chose to make me ride his bike, he pedaled even if I was heavy, he even paid for my train fare!  This man is good, truly good.

And that is why I am writing this, to show you who he is and to give thanks to him and the Lord.

Thank you Benjamin.  You didn't have to help, but you did.  Thank you Lord for bringing me an angel to help me get to a Church to give thanks to you.

I can now use the hashtag #Blessed because I really was.  I encountered a stranger that was an angel.  There is still good in this world.  Thank you again, Benjamin!
