Cheapest Dishwasher

I am tired of hand washing our dishes. It consumes a lot of time, especially when I am in a hurry to finish something else. For that reason, I am looking for the cheapest dishwasher, so I can skip hand washing the dishes and proceed to my other responsibilities. 

laundry-and-dishwasher-info.com


That said, I need to find the cheapest dishwasher that has a sensor washing feature. It can help in saving water and reducing the duration of a wash cycle. Good thing is that this feature is available even on budget models.

A self-cleaning filter that has hard-food disposer is another feature that I am looking for in the cheapest dishwater on the market. In this feature, I can skip from pre-rinsing congealed dishes, thus saving water and time. It keeps the wash water free of food particles.

I have started my research for the cheapest dishwasher but I have not seen yet that offers useful features at affordable rate.

Mt. Apo: The Highest Mountain in the Philippines

I have been doing cardio exercises to prepare myself from the proposed Mt. Apo climbing activity this coming Holy Week.

Mt. Apo is the highest mountain in the Philippines. It is also the second highest mountain in Southeast Asia. Apart from that, Mt. Apo is also home to Vanda sanderiana, exotic fruits, and, of course, the endangered Philippine Eagle.

Among my siblings, I am the only one who has not climbed up to the peak of the Mt. Apo. Hopefully, this Holy Week, I would reach the top of the highest mountain in the Philippines (cross fingers).

Waterproof Dog Beds

Although I am still on the lookout for an affordable shih tzu, I want to purchase a waterproof dog bed. With this type of dog bed, my (soon-to-be) pet dog can stay dry outdoors even on rainy days.

Waterproof dog beds can be easily cleaned and require little maintenance. This dog bed option is a great way to prevent building up of molds and bacteria, thus, protecting owners and their respective pet dogs.

I like this waterproof bed called “The Tuffie Nest” from tuffies.co.uk. Apart from being waterproof, it is also chew-proof which is perfect for a chewing dog like shih tzu.

Addicted to Google Sketchup: My New Pastime

Since I have learned how to “push/pull” in Sketchup, I cannot stop from making designs of almost anything-- from cabinet to bunk bed to floor plan. 

My unfinished cabinet

There are two versions of Sketchup: Google Sketchup and Sketchup Pro. I am using the former as it is a freeware. I am not an engineer or an architect, so I do not need the more capable Sketchup Pro.

With the free-downloadable version of Sketchup, I can already make a floor plan with interior design using its basic tools. The free version can export .dae file and .kmz file format of Google Earth.

I am new to Google Sketchup so I still have many things to learn, like how to properly use the component tool and rotate. Thankfully, there are sketchup tutorials that I can play every time I need help with my design.

Bunk Bed: A Space Saver

Bunk bed is great for rooms with limited space as it occupies minimum space while maximizing available floor space. In my own room, I already have one standard bunk bed and I am planning to add one. The extra bed will be used by my nieces when they come and visit DC.

I have seen various bunk beds in different malls here in DC but nothing really caught my attention. But this space saver bunk bed from ResourceFurniture.com really tickled my fancy.

It looks like a simple couch but by lifting one of its parts, it can transform into a bunk bed.

Genius, is it not? I want to order this type of space saving bunk bed but I do not think Resource Furniture delivers their products outside the US. :(

Moneybookers: Is It Better than PayPal?


After my account in MoneyBookers (MB) has been verified, I tested its capacity in withdrawing money to my bank account in the Philippines.

The withdrawal process in MB is as simple as withdrawing money in PayPal. However, MB has a confirmation process that involves entering of birth date.


Fees
Unlike PayPal’s fee (2.9%+$0.30), receiving money in MoneyBookers is free. But withdrawing money entails a flat fee of $2.37, depending on the FOREX market. For that reason, it is better to withdraw a bigger amount in MB.

Inability to view amount in Philippine currency
This is probably one of the drawbacks of using MB. I was not able to view the total withdrawal amount in Philippine peso before proceeding to wire transfer. However, based on my manual computation, MoneyBookers has higher exchange rate than PayPal. 

Wire transfer
According to Moneybookers, it will take up to 5 business days before the amount reaches my bank account. In PayPal, money transfer can be completed within 2 to 3 business days. When I used Moneybookers, wire transfer only took 2 days to complete.

Because of the positive result of the withdrawal process in Moneybookers, I prefer Moneybookers to PayPal provided the amount to be withdrawn is more than $300. I just hope that transferring money using Moneybookers will continue to be a hassle-free transaction.

Will I recommend Moneybookers?
Absolutely. NO

You may use this link -- Moneybookers -- to sign up for MB. ABSOLUTELY, NOT RECOMMENDED.
