Hi Dear Readers!
Starting today, I’ll be sharing with you random thoughts that could inspire each and everyone. I hope, somehow, this could help us learn more in coping up with life and staying positive despite of all the trials that we’re facing.
So, LIFE LESSON #1:
“KEEP YOUR HEART FREE FROM HATE.”
Focus on what’s important in your life. Don’t waste your time hating people. It does no good to you emotionally and spiritually. Let God deal with these things. Don’t be consumed by hate because HATE or HATRED is a weak emotion. It’s a sign of failure.
HATRED IS SELF-PUNISHMENT. You are just letting yourself to be sad and miserable instead of being happy and enjoying life. You make yourself unproductive because HATE is your FOCUS.
Instead of hating things… hating people… DO SOMETHING positive that would benefit you. Let go of that hatred in your heart.
Spread love… Make your smile contagious. 🙂
I can still remember nung bata pa ako na hinihintay ko buwan-buwan yung pag-uwe ni “mame” sa Lucena (Quezon Province). Laking lola kami ni kuya kasi nagtatrabaho sina mame sa Maynila, hindi naman kami maisama agad doon kasi wala naman titingin sa amin o maghahatid papasok sa school. Every end of the month or first week ng month, umuuwe sina dade at mame sa probinsya para bisitahin kami ni kuya, mag-iwan sa mga lola ng panggastos, saka magbigay sa amin ng pangbaon sa school. Two days lang sila palage, tapos aalis na. Tapos, malungkot na ulit…wala na ulit akong kasamang mommy sa loob ng isang buwan. Magbibilang na naman ng maraming araw hanggang makabalik sila.
Ang bilis ng panahon, ngayon, ako na yung nanay. May dalwang chikitings na ako na naghihintay sa akin sa pag-uwe galing sa trabaho. Sila naman yung naka-abang ngayon at naiinip sa paghihintay sa ‘kin. Minsan, sasabihan pa ako na ‘wag na akong umalis, ‘wag nang magtrabaho. Kung pwede lang sana… hehe.

“I’m getting old.” *sad*
I’ve been suffering from lots and lots of different ailments these past few months. Two of my major complaints are from my head and back.
Then I came across a “to-the-rescue” product at the department store in SM City Molino. It’s Relief Hot Compress. Hmmm, interesting!
The product costs Php 199 if you have an SM Advantage Card. However, if you don’t have one, I am not sure if it’s Php 399 or Php 499…but somewhat in that price range. Price-wise, it’s pretty amazing with an SM advantage card. Alright, let’s proceed with my honest review…
I bought the colored brown hot compress. It looks like a pillow but feels and looks like a stuff toy. It’s very handy, easy to bring anywhere. It has liquid inside. I am not sure if it’s water or any other liquid. I haven’t mentioned it yet, but, it’s an electronic hot compress. So, from the word “electronic” itself, I’m sure you get an idea or first impression that it’s rechargeable. If that’s what you think, YOU GET IT RIGHT! It’s very fast and convenient than the traditional heat compress. I think you only recharge it for about 10 minutes. Just plug it and wait for the indicator light to turn off then you can readily use it. This electronic heat compress helps a lot with relaxation. To be fair, it retains the heat for 30-40 minutes. It good enough to provide short term relief to your backache, dysmenorrhea or sore muscles.
There’s no need to worry about spilling. I’ve been using this product for more than 1 month now and I never experienced spilling of the the liquid inside. I’ve only found two disadvantage of this product:
- It smells a lot of burnt electric wire right after recharging. Sometimes, that bad odor lasts for 5-10 minutes.
- You cannot control the temperature.
This is my short/simple review. So far, it does its job very well. I can give you an update after a few more months upon using this product.
