Smart Plasma Mask with Build in Ionizer: Mask We All Need

I have a new mask called Smart Plasma Mask to keep me protected and I must say, this is the mask that we all need. Let me tell you off-hand that at Php 5500, it’s pricey for a mask but affordable as an Ionizer. I started with the price so that you know how much the investment is before you continue reading the article. With that, let me tell you that this device is super worth it.

Let’s start with the “why”… why did I buy this mask?

I haven’t been outside that much since March 14. See… I still remember the date. The longest time that I left the house was when Zeeka had a stomach ache and we had to go to the hospital. Turns out, she was just VERY constipated (thank goodness!). I bought the mask because one of the things that I have noticed when we wear masks is that, we can’t breathe easily when we’re wearing the N95 masks that we have. This is good because that means it really blocks the virus. But when you have senior citizens and kids, it’s hard for them to wear these because they get annoyed.

Next is that with the face shields that we are required to wear with the mask, it’s uncomfortable. Don’t know about you but I perspire a lot (so does my husband and daughter) and when we wear these two things together, we’re drenched in sweat.

And the last thing that I’ve noticed is that when we remove our mask in a restaurant, we just place it anywhere. With this, it’s not really that “hygienic”.

So I did my research and found this high tech mask! As you know, I love reviewing unique things like this, so I did and tried the device.

Before going to the review of the mask, let’s start with what makes this Smart Plasma Mask different from other “power masks”. It’s different because it’s also has a built-in Ionizer.

What is an Ionizer?

Ionezers create negative ions. Negative ions attach to dust and make it fall. This is why people with severe rhinitis like me are advised to have ionizers in the room. As for it’s chemical reaction, negative ions break down virus and bacteria. This is why people use it during this time of COVID.

Have you heard people say that if you have allergies or respiratory problems, you should go to the beach? The scientific explanation is really because of the amount of the negative ions in the air.

Check out this chart that shows the different negative ion concentrations.

So usually at home, we have a low concentration of negative ions.

All About the Smart Plasma Mask

The Smart Plasma Mask has a negative ion concentration of 80,000 /cm3. I started using it as an ionizer also in our room this week. Just to let you know, I tried to wean off from my antihistamines. I’ve been taking one tablet a day since a year ago. This year, I really want to stop using.

Last Sunday, I stopped, so Monday I really felt terrible. They only thing that helped me breathe, at least a little, was this Smart Plasma Mask. I would place it on my bedside just like this and I would leave it turned on using the switch holder.

It really helped me a lot, and because of this, I have been turning it on every evening since that time.

During the day, EJ loves using it also when he does errands. He said that it’s very comfortable to use and it’s easier to breathe.

What he finds really fascinating is the design of the mask when you ‘re not wearing it. You can just hand it around your neck!

Some FAQs!

How long does the battery last?

It lasts your 2-3 days without charging

How long can I leave it on?

8 hours is fine (like leaving it overnight). Please turn it off in the morning by removing the switch holder.

If something happens to the device, who can I turn to?

Globe implements Network Upgrade

I’ve been a client of Globe for 12 years. I just found out because I got a text National G Day! And super happy so see that there are a lot of initiatives being spearheaded by Globe.

Today, I learned that Globe announced its largest network upgrade to date since it introduced data 10 years ago. This was in line with their nationwide network transformation program. This upgrade is so timely especially at a time when we business owners, parents with kids who are distance learning, employees working from home (practically everyone!) need faster data connectivity.

Globe Network Upgrade: 3 pronged strategy

The first is to  accelerate cell site builds to expand coverage and increase capacity for data.  With the strong support of ARTA and the recently signed Bayanihan to Recover As One or Bayanihan 2, the faster processing and release of various national and LGU permits are crucial to jumpstart the infrastructure builds to improve the country’s overall state of connectivity.  

The second is to upgrade all its sites to have 4G/LTE using many different frequencies, which are important for both coverage and speeds. With 4G everywhere, the whole country will be data-ready and capable to meet the increasing demands of customers for bandwidth and faster speeds.  

The third is to fast track the fiberization of Filipino  homes to improve data experience using wireline connectivity.  As Filipinos spend more time at home because of the lockdowns, Globe hopes to address the growing demand for home broadband with a much larger fiber footprint, using only the most advanced technologies.

All the network upgrades are expected to be completed by 2021. 

Globe president and CEO Ernest Cu said, “Globe is in a much better position now to fulfill the demands of its customers.  In heeding the call of the government, we shall endeavor to provide our customers with improved network performance and quality of service.  We look towards the future where our country would have a strong digital economy backed by  resilient and reliable connectivity.”

Globe is the country’s leader in mobile and hopes to cement its leadership in the broadband category. For 2020, the company committed to spend Php 50.3 billion in capex, majority of which will be spent on its network upgrade initiatives.   

The company previously released a series of network related updates  including the  build of 900 cellsites with five shared independent tower companies (towercos), securing 190 permits from 85 local government units (LGU), network upgrades in eight key areas of Visayas and Mindanao,  as well as putting up 32 new towers in several key barangays in Quezon City. Globe is also rolling out fiber lines in Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Batangas, Cebu and Davao del Sur. The telco’s fiber roll out during the last 8 months  already represents a 51.4% increase over full year 2019.  To date, the company is proactively migrating customers from copper lines  to fiber free of charge.

I’m also excited for Globe’s 5G network, targeting areas in key locations such as Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Makati CBD, Rockwell Center, Ortigas CBD, strategic areas along EDSA and C5, Taguig, Pasig, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Paranaque, Muntinlupa, Las Pin͂as, Valenzuela, and Caloocan. 

Aside from Globe network update, Globe is committed to support 10 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, such as UNSDG No. 9 on building resilient infrastructure, promoting sustainable industrialization and fostering innovation. To know more visit www.globe.com.ph

JML Fresh Air Mist Ultrasonic Aroma Humidifier: Perfect Gift to Start the Year Right

My favorite past time now is looking through stuff in online stores and window shopping! I just feel so relaxed when navigating through these sites and when walking through the isles (even if I know oftentimes, I don’t get to buy anything). It’s so tempting though to buy new and innovative things and gadgets that you see.

JML Fresh Air Mist

For the longest time, I have been eyeing different humidifiers. The one that popped out was the JML Fresh Air Mist Ultrasonic Aroma Humidifier. I saw this at Ace Hardware actually. But, before we talk about this product, the reason why is that my husband, EJ, wakes up every day and coughs like hell. He has pretty bad dry cough in the morning. I did some reading and people online say that humidifiers can help with this.

Oh, and I wake up to cracked lips, sometimes, too! Both these things may be because of the dry air in our room.

So, let’s talk about humidifiers! You may not know it but I saw several types online. What we had when we were kids was what is called a steam vaporizers. Do you still remember this? I still remember that my mom would use to place efficascent oil into the machine, and had me stay in front of the humidifier when I had colds.

What caught my attention are the ultrasonic humidifiers! Sounds so futuristic, right?

Well, these humidifiers produce a mist using ultrasonic vibration. The one that caught my attention early on was the JML Fresh Air Mist Ultrasonic Aroma Humidifier.

The JML Fresh Air Mist Utrasonic Aroma Humidifier can carry 2.5L of water. Humidifiers this size can be use for a room that is 10-25m². This was actually perfect for our room!

Have you ever tried using the JML Fresh Air Mist Ultrasonic Aroma Humidifier? Let me know!

Easy Sewing with EasyStitch Max from JML Philippines

When school started, we had to adjust the length of all 3 pairs of jogging pants of my daughter. Since we didn’t have a sewing machine, we had to sew it by hand.

I’ve always wanted to have a sewing machine though. It brings back fond memories. My grandmother had a sewing machine at her house. This was the one made out of steel which was weirdly (this was what I thought when I was young) attached to a wooden table.

I remember feeling so amazed at how clothes get patched up by this magical contraption. I also love the sound and how people would step on the foot pedal in a rhythm that I found so hypnotising.

So now that I have my own condo unit, I really wanted to get one. It just makes the house feel “complete”. Haha! Well, we normally don’t know when we need one, but we’d all love to be ready for that moment.

The only thing that stopped me from getting one is SPACE. But, I discovered the Easy Stitch Max!

This sewing machine’s size is perfect for our home! This is how it looks!

When I posted this, people asked me if it works like a real sewing machine. Yes, it does, and it works as well as the “real” sewing machine in our mind.

Before I go to the How To’s and the review, let’s go through the parts!

Things to note before using the Easy Stitch Max:

  • It runs on batteries so please be ready with four pieces of AA batteries. Before placing batteries, make sure that the machine is switched off.
  • If you’re replacing the needle, too, remove batteries and disconnect the adapter. Remove the protection plate and be sure that the needle is in the highest position. Just like the traditional sewing machine, loosen the needle and replace it. Be sure that the needle is pushed all the way back and tighten the clamp screw.

Threading Upper Thread

This is the tricky part. I always forget where to insert the thread and what the order is. so I’ll just leave this image here from the instruction manual so that you can follow it. The image below is for threading the lower bobbin.

Threading the Lower Bobbin

What I like about the Easy Stitch Max

I love that you can choose the stitch pattern you like. If you look closely, it’s that little knob with the different patterns! Check out the zigzag stitches. Normally, when you sew by hand, you need to go through the cloth all over again. In this case, the machine takes care of it.

You can also adjust the stitch length. There is an indicator in the machine that you can use. There is a reverse stitch, too, used at the beginning / end of seam.

Since it’s electric, I love that you can choose the speed of sewing. With the traditional sewing machine, you’ll have to control the speed using the foot pedal. Oh, the Easy Stitch Max also has a foot control which turn the machine on. This is so that you can hold your garment and have full control.

And, last but not the least, do you know that this sewing machine has a work light? So cool!

So what do you think? Will you hurry to Ace Hardware or go to Lazada (https://www.lazada.com.ph/jml/) to purchase one? This magical sewing machine sells for Php 4,199.75!

Keep Pests Away with Pest Shield Pro — Create a Force Field!

Two weeks ago, I was incessantly complaining to EJ about the amount of little cockroaches we had at home. We had some people from a pest control company come 4 years ago and did a good job of eliminating most of the cockroaches in the house. We would see a few show up once in a while, but recently, we’ve been seeing a lot!

Then last week, just after calling the pest control company, I found this interesting device online. It’s called the Pest Shield Pro Repeller.

It said that it was a force field against pests, so this really made me obviously curious. Each device was at around Php 1500. I installed the first one near Zeeka’s bathroom and another one in the office. We also had cockroaches in the office, but it wasn’t as much of a problem anymore since we covered the drainage. I just placed one for security! haha 🙂

Normally, in the evening, our helper would spray an insecticide in Zeeka’s bathroom. My daughter would use our bathroom in the evening to pee, so that she won’t have to inhale the chemicals. Then, in the morning, we’d see at least on cockroach dead by the door or by the hallway near the bathroom.

We plugged in the JML Philippines Pest Shield Pro in the socket along the hallway and kept the bathroom door open. We plugged it in last Tuesday, and we have never seen any cockroach since that time!

So what is this amazing device and how does it keep rodents, roaches, ants, spiders and bugs away?

It basically uses sonic and electromagnetic technologies. You’ll notice that each unit has a green light (sonic) and red light (electromagnetic) that lights up when the device is on. That indicates that it’s working. It’s safe to use, too!

I love that it has a night light, too. It’s perfect since I plugged it into a socket located at our hallway.

Some of the things that you need to remember when you use the Pest Shield Pro:

  • The Pest Shield Pro operates on 220 volt outlets.
  • Do not expose to dripping or splashing water. Keep it away from water in general.
  • When you’re not using the device, remove any plugged items in the built in socket in the device.
  • When plugged, make sure that nothing is beside it (at least within 6 inches).
  • No candles should be near the device or any source of flame.
  • If you break it, you will need to replace it. You cannot have a device repaired anymore.
  • The built-in outlet can be used for two pronged appliances, polarized plugs with a maximum power draw of 8 amps. Do not plug appliances that require more.
  • One Pest Shield Pro is enough for a 1050 square feet area.

Verdict: I’m very happy with what I have seen and how this device has worked for me. I wish all brick and mortar stores, resorts and hotel (especially food establishments and convenience stores) use this. Because I have seen rats roam around some of the stores here! 🙂 haha!

Keep your family safe from diseases, usually caused by pests! Try our the JML Philippines’ Pest Shield Pro.
