De-Clutter for a Much Bigger Space

I took three days off from blogging last week to focus on my general cleaning. Both my husband and daughter were complaining that the house is too crowded yet. We live in this house that we thought is big enough for us the first time we bought it. But for 11 years of living here, furniture, appliances and other stuffs are being added every year, occupying every space there is. To de-clutter is the best solution for us to have enough space to walk on and so I did. So after three days of de-cluttering with the help of my mother, voila! The house looks bigger again, very clean and with good ventilation.

My husband and daughter loved it but I got a new problem now, where to store all the stuffs I put in the boxes. If only there is a near self-storage in our place, I will not need to worry because they can keep the boxes safely for me. My husband suggested a garage sale but I cannot let go of these things because of their sentimental values. Mostly are gifts on our wedding and objects that can be used on special occasions. Maybe I need another hanging cabinet installed in the laundry area as storage. 
If your space is at premium like ours, take a good look around your house and get ready to de-clutter for a much bigger space.

Filipino Discipline at Its Finest (Part 2)

I do not know why most people find it hard to follow instructions or rules on signages. They jaywalk where there is no jaywalking sign, unload on  the places with unloading signs, cross the streets with red traffic lights on, etc. I am not sure if it is the same on the other parts of the world but it is very common here in the Philippines. 
When we went to Parks and Wild Life, there was this Myna bird’s cage with sign “bawal magsabi ng panget o di kanais-nais na salita” (it is prohibited to say ugly or other unlikely words). 
Myna birds can easily mimic human talking that is why. Mostly children and families are visiting the zoos so the zoo administrator is protecting the zoo’s image. I explained this to my daughter when she asked why there is such sign, then we walked away. We were just few steps away when someone in front of the Myna cage shouted “pangit!” (ugly!). What a shame that these people cannot follow simple rules. Oh, again, I am not generalizing. Filipinos are disciplined people. There are only few who love to flaunt their disobedience.

Helpful Insect Predators

The first thing that come in our mind when we heard the word predator is killer. Not all predators are freakish and horrifying. After watching the television this morning, I have learned that insect predators like lizards, frogs, spiders and bats are indicators of a healthy environment. Each group may have different life cycle and habits but one thing is for sure, the lesser they are, the risky it is for the environment. There will be more insects thus an imbalance in the ecosystem. Maybe this is one reason why the Dengue mosquitoes are continuously breeding and spreading. I seldom see lizards and haven’t seen frogs for years now. If these predators become endangered, more diseases will be spread by insects.
These predators can be found in our house, yards and their natural habitats. If we will only allow them to live, they can help to stop the spread of these killer mosquitoes. That is how helpful these predators are.
