Emergency Kits

We just had another destructive typhoon experience last weekend. This weather disturbance is known as Mario (Fung-Wong).

The fact that it almost came closed to being compared with that of Ondoy or Ketsana that took a lot of lives and destroyed a massive amount of infrastructure, means is it a very big one.

A lot of families places where the floodwater rose five years ago during Ondoy did not experience the same harrowing experience. Some were ready with their emergency kits and extra food.

So, what’s in an emergency kit?

  • OTC meds with expiration date a year or two more
  • Soap and shampoo
  • Candles and matches
  • Flashlight and extra batteries (make sure these are still fresh and have not leaked at all)
  • Towels, extra bedsheet and tissue paper.
  • Extra cash
  • Canned food
  • First-aid kit.

If I missed something I’m sure, merz apothecary can help you with these items I was not able to include.

What we don’t need are the situations that call for the use of these items in the kit. Wouldn’t that be better?

Hardware Store Loot

I have always been “proud” of the fact that I’d rather go to a hardware store than go to a clothes store. Maybe I was born to be a carpenter, I just don’t know about it nor have my skills been acquired to be one :D

In one of my trips to a hardware store, I got these:

I had hopes to attach these slide under one of the shelves in the home library so I can attach a tray to be pulled and pushed when needed. Sadly, I wasn’t able to put these together, *inserts groan sound here…*

Those online hardware stores that sells 10 inch drawer slides like the linked site are sites I like to look at because when I finally have time to go to a real store, I know what I need to get.

Pinto Art Museum

I wrote about Pinto Art Museum in this article. I also published posts here and here.

Below are two newer photos I took (and published in an Instagram account I use) when we came back three weeks ago with the children:

Christmas Eve Window Shopping

I don’t know what has gotten into us the day before Christmas but we decided to go to this business center where bazaars are a-plenty. I was planning to get some colorful beads to make bracelets but I was extremely disappointed. This low building where I used to see the beads being sold are now just selling smartphones and tablets cases and protective screen covers. Shows just what the people are buying for themselves.

There were also stalls that sell “imitation” tablets and smartphones with a known manufacturer’s brand on the gadgets. I don’t know if it is even legal to do that kind of business. But then again, people were buying these things.

One of the stores where a lot of people go to are those that sell speakers, music players, and karaoke gadgets.

We just bought a guitar capo for the daughter and asked about beatboxes which the boy is interested in.
