Our Tuesday – 15 September 2015

Today is an emergency government declared holiday for schools in several states in Malaysia, caused by the haze. Coincidentally, it is also the girls’ school anniversary holiday today. When we went to the coffee shop for breakfast this morning, we saw many kids still in their uniform having brekkie. Their parents were obviously not aware of the holiday, which was only declared at midnight! Yup, we have a bunch of jokers up there but I ain’t going to elaborate further lest I get myself into trouble… you get what I mean?  Anyway, today’s haze situation ain’t as terrible as yesterday, thanks to the rain.  Yesterday was horrendous!

After breakfast, we segued into Les Deux Garcons to have coffee, cakes and salad.

Then we went shopping and Grandma bought Cass a My Melody lantern.  I am going to miss seeing my last baby playing with a lantern. I am pretty sure that by next year, Cass will be past the stage of lantern-playing, just like her 2 che ches.

At home, holiday mood filled the air and the girls ain’t perturbed by the hazy air at all. The  3rd term school holiday begins this weekend and they are so looking forward to having koong koong and granny here!

Tomorrow is yet another public holiday (Malaysia Day). We will be home-bound and staying away from town. News (hopefully rumors) have it that the  Shirt Rally may turn chaotic. So we will just stick in our neighborhood. The girls will be at their grand uncle’s house to get a lasagna cooking tutorial from him 🙂

For those living in the Klang Valley, stay safe and stay healthy. Let’s pray that the haze situation improves and that the Shirt Rally will be anything but peaceful.

My First Diamond Coral Gold Water Filter

H20 consists of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. This substance also known as water, is one of the most essential elements to our body and all living things in this planet.

Water makes up more than two thirds of human body weight, and without water, we would die in a few days. The human brain is made up of 95% water, blood is 82% and lungs 90%. A mere 2% drop in our body’s water supply can trigger signs of dehydration. This is why clean water is so vital for our body to stay healthy and to function optimally.

This week, one of my wishes finally came true!  I had long wanted to get a water filter for our wet kitchen so that we can wash and soak our veggies, rice, grains and raw meat using filtered water.  Currently, we only have one water filter (using electric) in the dry kitchen. We collect water for cooking and boiling from this water filter.  I have always wanted to wash and soak our veggies using filtered water but it’s really inconvenient to be doing all the washing in our dry kitchen, which is pretty cramped.  So with both eyes closed, we have been washing our meat and veggies with regular tap water.

I have lots of qualms over the quality of unfiltered water at the place where I live. Our toilet bowls often have mud-like stains though we wash them every day. Our white clothes turn yellowish over time. This is evidence that our unfiltered water is indeed adulterated with rust from old water pipes and other contaminants and dirt, which cannot be immediately seen by the naked eyes.

With many many thanks to Diamond, the world renowned experts in water filters, they have given me one of the best gifts this year by loaning me their latest water filter model – the Diamond Coral Gold!  The duration I get to use the Diamond Coral Gold water filter will be for 1 year, after which I can either return it to them OR take up their High Value Trade In offer. I shall explain more on the High Value Trade In campaign in my next post.

This is how my Diamond Coral Gold water filter looks like – full of elegance and efficient in filtering our drinking water.

 

 

Diamond Coral water filters use 100% natural purifying materials such as as diatomite, coral calcium, coconut shells and bamboo charcoal base activated carbon. This system can purify harmful elements over a hundred times and it can get rid of radioactive elements found in the water while keeping intact the minerals vital to the human bodies.

The filtered water can be consumed without boiling. However, if you have young kids with sensitive tummies, you can boil the water to have a peace of mind.

The Diamond technician who came to my place was a jovial chap who knew his stuff well.  I bombarded him with a long list of questions on the water filter and he patiently answered all my questions 😀  He was also very punctual on the appointment day and gave me ample notice (by calling me on my phone) before turning up at my place.

 

After slightly less than an hour, my Diamond Coral Gold water filter was finally installed!  Before Mr Diamond left, he snapped a few pictures of newly installed water filter and asked my mil to stand next to it. She was reluctant to be the model but finally gave in since Mr Diamond was such a nice chap LOL!  This is a requirement by the company as proof that the machine has been successfully installed at the client’s home.

With a water filter in our wet kitchen, cooking is now made easier. The mil and I don’t have to carry our pots and pans into the dry kitchen to fill them up with filtered water for boiling soups and cooking rice.

Diamond Coral water machine is the world’s few water filter machines that passed over 200 performance measurements and safety testing. They are awarded NSF42 and 53 Gold Seal by the USA Water Quality Association (WQA).

As I am typing this post, my MIL is busy whipping up a storm in the kitchen. Now she does not need to walk in and out of both the kitchens to get filtered water.

Water filters are not a want, they are a need, a necessity for better health. If you do not have one yet, well, you can consider Diamond.  Do hop over to Diamond website to check the models and the packages.
