Breeze with ActivBleach: Removes 1 Million Stains In 1 Wash

I got the privilege to post the PRESS RELEASE of Breeze ActivBleach for their event last September of this year. It happened simultaneously all over the Philippines.


http://www.breeze.com.ph/


Breeze with ActivBleach was developed to all moms who have growing, curious and adventurous kids. It removes intense stains that no other powder detergent can give.

I received a package from STRATWORKS, a package full of BREEZE ACTIVBLEACH products, in exchange for posting their PRESS RELEASE here in my site.




Honestly, we are not using Breeze ActivBleach in our household because in our baranggay Breeze product is always OUT OF STOCK or NOT AVAILABLE in the sari-sari
store. So thanks so much STRATWORKS especially to Ms. Grace Bermejo for giving me the chance to use this product for the FIRST TIME.




Yes, you read it exactly!  It is my first time to use Breeze ActivBleach. 

Using our washing machine, I wash my daughters white uniform. Been a week that I have a problem with her uniform, it has an ink stain at the back of her white polo shirt, she told me her classmate did not notice that her pen is leaking, you know how extremely irritating and frustrating this can be.




Though the stain lightens its color using the other brand of detergent, still when you hang it on a brighter side, you can still see the dark stain on the uniform.

BREEZE ACTIVBLEACH is so promising, it says that by using this product it allows busy moms to spend less time washing clothes. Actually washing clothes is not my favorite things to do, but however with BREEZE ACTIVBLEACH I will make it a try to see for myself if this product really fulfill their PROMISE.

After 1 WASH see the result.......




SATISFACTION at its BEST!  Unbelievable! I attest it really REMOVE STAIN in 1 WASH and it only takes me 1 minute to remove the stain. 

Another thing I experience using Breeze ActivBleach is by hand washing my stuff toys.





If the stuff toy looks delicate, do not wash it in the washing machine.
  


The toys are CLEAN and my HANDS are still SOFT.  Love it! 

We want something that LESSEN our WASH LOAD and at the same time we can SAVE MONEY-WATER CONSUMPTION and the USE of ELECTRICITY.

Now with BREEZE ACTIVBLEACH, choosing a laundry detergent is getting a little easier.  Nothing to worry at all...SIGE SA MANTSA!

World Toilet Day 2014: a DOMEX Fiesta Way

It's so weird to hear the word toilet, isn't it? Or let me rephrase it, "it is hard to appreciate the important of TOILETS-until you try to imagine a LIFE without them".


World Toilet Day is a global observance and not a public holiday.

Did you know that more people all around the world have a mobile phone than a toilet. According to the research, out of the world's seven billion people, six billion have mobile phones. Only 4.5 billion have the access to toilet, meaning the remaining 2.5 billion people that lives mostly at the rural areas, don't have a proper sanitation. See the picture here? There are many people who are longing to have a clean toilet of their own.


www.wateraid.org


WORLD TOILET DAY is a UNITED NATION observance, and the highlights of this is to educate people how important is the TOILET to every one.






Clean toilets, germ-free communities

All over the country, people are welcoming the construction of new toilet facilities and the repair of dilapidated ones, since becoming aware of its role in disease prevention, especially among children.

According to the Department of Health, of the estimated 3,420 diarrhea-related deaths among Filipino children under 5 every year, around 2,000 could have been prevented by access to safe water, improved toilet sanitation and personal hygiene.


Here's a video of a Community welcoming the 

arrival of clean toilets in a “Fiesta” scenario.







This video should serve as a wake-up call for most of us. The little things we take for granted, like having a clean toilet, could mean the world to others and could definitely help save lives.~said by Dennis Chua, DOMEX BRAND MANAGER. 


It’s a scene typically played out during fiestas: People rushing to the streets, drawn to the sound of a marching band. Everyone is smiling, eager to see the “star” of the celebration. But instead of showing the face of a movie celebrity, a beauty queen or a politician, the video reveals an unlikely, yet welcome sight—a new, clean toilet facility.


The video aims to make people realize the value of a toilet which most of us, unfortunately, take for granted, said Chua

Aptly titled “Fiesta”, the Domex video, produced by Unilever Philippines, is available on Youtube and shows how underprivileged Filipinos welcome the “arrival” of clean toilet facilities in their communities. 

By watching the ‘Fiesta’ video and asking our friends to watch it, we are not only raising awareness for toilet appreciation and sanitation, more importantly, we are helping less privileged communities gain access to clean toilet facilities, said Benjie Yap, Unilever Foods and Home Care Vice President.

The “Fiesta” video contributes to the efforts of Domex’s One Million Clean Toilets Movement. Each unique view translates into a pledge for the advocacy campaign which collects pledges from households to conscientiously maintain their own hygienic bathrooms. For every pledge received, Domex will donate P5 to UNICEF’s sanitation program, towards improving access to basic sanitation in deprived areas around the world, including the Philippines.

For every view of the said video, counts as a pledge.



So let us help other communities to gain access to a clean toilet facilities today!

Let's save lives together. To make a pledge, please do visit FB PAGE DOMEX 1 MILLION CLEAN TOILET .

Manage Your Facebook Without Downloading The Facebook Messenger App

In April 2014, FACEBOOK owner Mark Zuckerberg announced that the FACEBOOK MESSENGER would no longer be available in the main app and that users are need to DOWNLOAD the separate MESSENGER APP for chat functionality.

Here goes the problem, everyone hates the new Facebook Messenger App.  Why? In my case, number one is the LOW in SPACE in my PHONE STORAGE and the insidious privacy permissions that Facebook is doing- the spying and accessing our conversation and reading our private messages.

So far this is the most violation done by FACEBOOK to us, VIOLATING OUR PRIVACY RIGHT.

That is why, I deleted FACEBOOK MESSENGER APP in my mobile.




How did I manage to use the main app with the old version of the Facebook Messenger?



(1) Click the REMIND ME button. It pops out every 2 or 3 times in your Facebook Messenger.



(2) Then after a week, you will see LEARN MORE. Do not click that, instead LOG OUT from your Facebook Main App. Then SIGN IN again. And you will see the old version of the FACEBOOK MESSENGER back again.


There's no need to download the Mobile Facebook Messenger App. I've been using this technique for almost 7 months now since I deleted the Facebook Messenger App in my mobile phone.

Your longing to continue using the old version of the Facebook Messenger, if you want the old version you can follow these steps and this will help you go back to the old messenger.


*If these steps didn't help you reset your password, or no choice you have to deal with the new one.

TSU: The Modern And Latest Social Network That Gives You Revenue

Tired of posting, sharing, liking, commenting and doing things using FACEBOOK and TWITTER without gaining anything? Actually, there is already a social media site that gives revenue in every original post you do, by liking, and commenting and that is BUBBLEWS. Been here for almost 4 years now and I am grateful to be a member of this site.  

And now it is nice to know that there is a modern and latest social network that gives you revenue and that is 'tsu'.




Why not try tsu, a free network that gives the SOCIAL REVENUES back to you!


I'm certain you feel SICK of Facebook and Twitter the likes of selling out its users and exploiting people who originally create the content that makes them rich. Oh well, if you feel that way we are on the same sentiments.


Tsu is the right place for you to earn and at the same time socialize. There aim is to REWARD its users and own their works.

Everyone is free to join by posting and sharing their thoughts, write original articles, share owned photos/images and with that you will be REWARDED. Got it? If not here's a video that will give you idea about The PHILOSOPHY of TSU.
      


The problem is that you create social content but you get NOTHING. Isn't it so unfair that these social medias USE you? Get your CONTENT and your AUDIENCE that you should OWN IT!

What is the different with TSU compared to the others?

  1. REMOVING ourselves for SIGN-UP process.
  2. Everyone who are already members with TSU has its own MEMBER CODE, this code will be use in order to become a member too.

HOW IT WORKS?

PalRaine-Tsu-Code


By the way tsu is pronounced as 'sue' 

It is very easy to get familiarize with 'Tsu' because its format looks like FACEBOOK.



How to make a great post to boost your ratings.  I will give you a sample here:


Here I post my article from one of my site, the system will automatically post the desired photos from your site and you don't have nothing to worry uploading images, and if you don't like the image you can click the X to remove and move the cursor to your best image.

Another thing that I like about this site is that you can SHARE your site and other social medias.



I know that you are eager to see the analytic side of it. By the way, I only joined yesterday, so expect that I don't have that earnings yet.  But I want to share what I've discovered from the site.




See my PROGRESS? Here it will tell you how many 'tsu' members VIEW your profile, LIKE any of your post and give COMMENTS. You will also see how many FOLLOWERS and FRIENDS you have in your FAMILY TREE.

FAMILY TREE?  What is that? One of the things that you can EARN more REVENUES is to have a BIG NETWORKING FAMILY TREE.



The more you invite, the more chances of GAINING. Once you CLICK MY CODE you are included to my FAMILY TREE basically you are my downline. 

This is not a NETWORKING wherein you are going to sell anything or any products online.

THE Tsu ALGORITHM (taken from Tsu FAQ



Accept Tsu peer-to-peer payments.  What is this?

If you want to to receive any revenue from Tsu, you have to go to your settings, select PRIVACY and CHECK "Accept tsu peer-to-peer payments".





The question here now, if we can get money from Tsu. Let's see because the site is less than a week old. And I am new here also, it's early to tell.

At this stage this site is good.  I love the platform use, very fast, good to the eyes and easy to use.

Nothing to worry because patience is a virtue, right? We will wait for the positive and negative scenario. For now, I love posting my site links here.  This is another opportunity for me as a blogger to SHARE my articles in order to gain views.

*Don't forget to add my CODE: https://www.tsu.co/Pal_Raine

Christmas in the Philippines

Christmas here in the Philippines start on the first "ber" month.  Yes, that's true! Our's is the longest celebration of the nativity of Jesus Christ here on earth. You will see lights with different colors, Christmas caroling and Christmas carols on the radio stimulate the air, it constantly fill with foods and drinks for occasion and apparels for sale for a BIG discount.


MANA Davao 2012


You will see neighbors and even strangers greet MERRY CHRISTMAS sincerely with a SMILE. Seniors too, received gifts from their loved ones from a faraway places.


It is said that the joy of Christmas is for children.

This is the month wherein children are dress in their best clothes and shoes for Christmas party in school, time to visit and show respect of their grandparents, godfather, godmother and relatives and received traditional gifts like toys and money.

The most colorful and happiest day in the year. But we don't forget the important practice we have here in the Philippines, the art of SHARING and GIVING during CHRISTMAS SEASON.  






As they say, this is the best way to express BY GIVING more than RECEIVING. 

Last year our country experience a great sadness due to TYPHOON YOLANDA struck with great fury and left a trail of devastation. But our country manages to rise up and still celebrates Christmas in simple way. 
Traditionally we do have parties, a lot of food prepared and lot of money spent for gifts but instead we send what we have saved to support people who have been affected by the typhoon. 


The whole Philippines celebrate Christmas in a quite way, we share our good and fortune to the people of Tacloban. 


Celebrating Christmas in the Philippines is also focusing with our spiritual preparation, in a way how we welcome our MESSIAH into our LIFE! How we manage our Christian spirit with GRATITUDE and TRUST to GOD who provides everything what we have.

The long celebration of Christmas in my country is not to waste money and be boastful with what you have in life, but to prepare your hearts for the whole period of the season. This will help creates a good and positive spirit as we prepare for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Here is a video that I would like you to hear, sing and REFLECT. The song is entitled "Thank You, Ang Babait Ninyo"(Thank You, You Are So Good To Us).




Merry Christmas Philippines!

You are blessed.
They are blessed.
Together we are blessed.
