Review: Cleaning with the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop

No comments:
I clean my own room and for health purposes, I try to walk around barefoot as often as I can. So it is really important to me that my floors are kept clean. Recently, I was sent a new, innovative kind of mop to try - the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop.

I've actually tried a couple of different types and brands over the years. I started with those cloth mopheads but they easily tore off and thinned out. Besides, they were not exactly absorbent. Most times, it would just make turn the floor dirt into wet clumps but it would transfer the clumps from one place to another as you moved the mop back and forth. I needed a broom to sweep up all the damp clumps to finish off the cleaning.

Next, I shifted to a more expensive kind, the one that had sponge-like mop bristles. This was more dirt-absorbent and came with a plastic bucket. But still, after a while, it would thin out as the sponge strands would come off due to wear and tear.

The Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop which arrived at home was HUGE!!!

My first thought: It looks like my vacuum cleaner!

UK's Costa Coffee is here in the Philippines!

No comments:
Dispel the myth. Londoners do not just drink tea. They love coffee as well.

Last week, I got a chance to experience what UK's #1 coffee is all about as Costa Coffee made us experience it firsthand during their soft launch for bloggers.


The first ever Costa Coffee store is at Eastwood Citywalk 1, near the Activity Center. That's not too far from me. They will be opening up 4 more stores very soon -- Robinsons Ermita, Tera Towers, Bonifacio Global City, and Robinsons Antipolo.

Qualimed opens in UP Town Center

No comments:
In spite of the fact that Katipunan is densely populated with residential houses and condominiums and home to at least three major schools and a few smaller ones in the periphery, as well as numerous eating places, I always wondered why it sorely lacked one thing for decades -- a decent, modern diagnostics and healthcare facility.

Not anymore though!

With the opening of the UP Town Center and its mall facilities, the QualiMed Health Network, a network of clinics, surgery centers, and hospitals, owned by Mercado General Hospital, Inc. in partnership with Ayala Land, Inc., has put up a Qualimed clinic in its mall area to service the area.

Magnum Manila's pop-up store says goodbye with a brand new menu

No comments:
You know that feeling when something you know is bound to come to an end actually comes to an end?

It was a day of mixed emotions for all of us at the media event. We recalled how, just over a year ago, we were in this same place celebrating the opening of Magnum Manila's pop-up store, enjoying the menu prepared for us by Chef Him Uy de Baron as well as the chocolate creations by award-winning pastry chef Miko Aspiras. And now this same group gathered once more to bid goodbye to Magnum Manila as it prepares to close its doors on July 26, 2015.

On the 1st International Day of Yoga, Waves of Peace will flow from Manila to Mindanao, Mindanao to Manila

No comments:
Last Dec. 11, 2014, the United Nations (UN) declared June 21 as the International Day of Yoga. This move was supported by 175 countries, the highest record number of declarations and co-sponsors of any UN General Assembly Resolution.



Globally, yoga communities are organizing different events to celebrate the first celebration. In the Philippines, one yoga community's intention is to send waves of peace to Mindanao, with Mindanao doing the same for Manila.
