Anything Under The Sun, All seasons and aspects of my life

Smell of orange juice 30.09.07

When I go on duty, I always have with me my water bottle. It always make me feel irritated every time  I put juice like orange juice in it, it smells. So search and found the solution with my problems. I hope it will help you too. When you have smell of orange juice or any other juices in a water jug, this is how to remove the smell: pour a solution of baking soda and water into the jug and leave overnight. Rinse very well with clear water. I tried it. It really works. A warning : if you’ve had this problem for sometime, it might be next to impossible to do anything about it because the odor has already seeped into the container walls.

An ounce of prevention 20.09.07

I don’t want that my ear will get infected again. I am very careful now to take good care of my ear. I am guided with this tips to prevent external otitis (inflammation of the ear canal):
• Carefully dry your ears with a hair dryer or towel after swimming or bathing.
• Put several drops of a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar or of water and rubbing alcohol in the ear canal to aid drying after swimming.
• Avoid excessive ear cleaning (simply wipe out whatever is at the opening of the ear canal).
• Put cotton balls in your eyes when applying hair spray or dye.

My first home birth 06.09.07


This is my first home birth delivery as a nurse-midwife. My cousin delivered her 3rd baby on Nov. 09, 2002, at home. This was my first delivery experience outside the clinic or hospital. It took a lot of courage and faith that God will take good care of everything. It was a different feeling because I am helping my cousin not just other patients that I took care of, that I am not blood related. It was a pressure because the whole family was depending on me with the birth. To God be the glory all things went well. The baby came out fast with no problems. A baby boy named Kent. It was a victorious event not just for me but the whole clan. It was the first time I felt I am really a nurse-midwife. It was so fulfilling..

tenanus ijection

This is me taken when I did a prenatal check up. I injected this patient with tetanus injection for prevention of tetanus.
Every pregnant women living in an area where there is neonatal tetanus should be vaccinated against tetanus at the first antenatal visit or every pregnancy. If she has not previously had the full course of tetanus protection, she should be vaccinated again 1-2 months later, then again 6 months after that.

Plan to start my own business 09.08.07

Lately, I was thinking of starting your own business. Before I start my own business, I should  familiarize myself with the different categories my business may fall into. I need to be well prepared for it because I can not just start it without any other considerations. I need to define your business categories for several purposes, mainly for filling forms with local and national government offices, for bank financing, and to obtain government assistance for my business. In the Conduct of entrepreneur’s business, there are three types of business whose differences are primarily based on the liabilities assumed by business owner: sole or individual proprietorship, partnership or corporation. Whichever I belong to, I hope my business flourish with the kind of management I ought to have. I can’t wait to manage my own business.

I love bathing babies 02.08.07

This is me bathing my cousin’s baby.One of the things I love in my profession is bathing babies. I delivered this baby at home on April 24, 2006. It was a great experience for me. He is now almost 2 y.o. As I look back two years ago, it made me realize how time passed so fast. He was just a baby by then. But now he already talks to me and runs around. He is such a handsome boy.

Just in time 23.07.07

Today I worked Day shift 6am-2pm. I set my alarm clock at 5:30 am. My alarm went off but I think I was still half awake and turned it off without my awareness. I was dreaming that I am already prepared for my shift. Then finally I suddenly wake up and when I looked at the clock, it was already 5:56am. All my adrenaline came rushing. I jumped off the bed and was fully awake in just a moment. I was kind of confused as to what do I need to do first. Finally I figured it out. Of course, I was not able to have a full shower as I used to before my every shift. Fortunately, I arrived in the birth room two minutes before endorsement time. It is good that I am just staying in the clinic where I work.

A good opportunity to buy 16.07.07

I had to admit that our purchase was unplanned. A land owner wanted to sell the land in emergency, I took the opportunity and since I am interested in getting that property. I was glad that we bought it at the right time, no one else had bought it, though I heard that one buyer was talking of buying it at greeter price we paid. If you are a first time buyer with limited funds, do not invest in more than one house or lot, of course if your funding is limited. Any extra funds should be used to increase the down payment or monthly dues in order to reduce your financial burden.

A good opportunity to buy is when you can lock-up the mortgage rate when it is low. This will allow you to build up equity faster even if the value of the house does not increase as fast as you like. Same as with landed property. There is always timing for everything.

Home as an investment 13.07.07

home investmentWe have talked about it already. One day God willing we will build a house in the Philippines. I am excited about that. We have a prospective site now, but have not buy yet the land there in that place. The one we bought is just for another investment. I always keep in mind that the house you built or bought is an investment for the future, even though at present, you have no plan of selling it. Profit comes not in the future but at the moment you bought the house that is priced right, located in a good neighborhood, with amenities and modern facilities and with other features that are sure to bring more value to the home; with that alone we will have very good investment.
