Marking Our Territory Soon at Our Cool Home in Rodriguez (Montalban), Rizal


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Inilabas uli ang umbrella marked as Wazzup Pilipinas!

As usual, umuulan uli dito. Rain comes most of the time here especially at night kaya mas ideal mag gardening dito. If hindi umuulan, malamig talaga sa gabi until morning at paggising namin ay puro hamog ang ibabaw ng mga kotse.

We are back in Rodriguez (Montalban), Rizal to give in to the special request of one of our sons, and that is the installation of air conditioning.

Basically, aside from making the house a weekend getaway, we are going to make it our workshop too. If this pandemic is not going away soon, we should have a place to use as a blogging, vlogging and livestreaming studio.












Seeing fireworks! Dahil sa paggawa ng metal housing for the aircon.

Actually, malamig dito tuwing gabi at umaga pero need mo pa rin ng aircon dahil mainit sa tanghali kahit may double-sided insulation foam na yung loob ng ceiling namin. You're fine if you'll open all windows and doors but your privacy is gone. You could also stay outside under the shade where it's cooler. (We are lucky our house here is facing east where the sun rises every morning), but we need a cooler ambiance indoors since we need to be plugged in most of the time.



The installation of window-type aircon for our Montalban, Rizal home was necessary. Kinunan ko uli nung naikabit na.

Bought the 1 hp Kelvinator brand for 13k. There are more expensive brands, especially the inverter split types which they say will save you on electricity cost, but the investment cost is higher at almost double.

My first familiarity with the brand is as a refrigerator brand. So air-conditioning is still a similarly cooling product.

The brand is owned by Swedish manufacturing giant Electrolux which Gen X peeps would remember by their 80's commercial which used a revised portion of the lyrics of the song to sound like this:

"I'm gonna knock on your door, ring on your bell, tap on your window too. So why don’t you open your door…  So I can show you more…
I’m your friendly Electrolux man.”

"I'm Gonna Knock on Your Door", written by Aaron Schroeder and Sid Wayne, is a song that was originally released by the Isley Brothers in 1959 and became a hit for teenage actor Eddie Hodges in 1961.

Electrolux is one of the smaller players in Australia's air conditioner market which is good enough for me as long as it's not a brand from China. But the box says it's a quality product of Concepcion-Carrier ...hhhmmm

Kelvinator's products usually perform well in Canstar Blue's customer satisfaction ratings, so the brand is evidently doing something right. Canstar Blue is Australia's most trusted comparison site, comparing over 120 consumer product and service categories, including energy.

Kelvinator air conditioners are, on the whole, a little cheaper than the more popular 'premium' brands out there. Nowadays, there seems to be very little difference in quality and performance among brands because most of our appliances that are still working are not among those high-end brands.

But after inspecting the box, nakalagay na it is a Concepcion-Carrier ... Hindi yata updated info na research ko online

Pero bakit ba tayo naglolokohan. Sa hinabahaba ng kuwento ko, doon pa rin tayo sa totoo, yun lang kasi ang extra budget namin for now. ..hehehe :)



Oh Christmas tree, my Christmas tree!

Nabasa ng ulan yung box at nasira kaya binuo ko na itong punong simbolo ng Pasko

Kapag hindi pa ako nauna sa pag greet sa inyo ng Merry Christmas ay ewan ko na lang talaga :)



Inabutan na ng dinner time!

Bought pork barbecue outside the main entrance to our phase where commercial establishments can be found. Ito talaga favorite ko kapag nandito kami sa Rodriguez (Montalban), Rizal home namin.

Grilled or barbecued is supposed to be healthier than anything fried that fastfood restos sell. Kaya kanina ay litsong manok from Baliwag ang lunch namin.

May nagsabi na masama daw yung sunog na parts but for me iyon ang mas masarap

Naturally, wala ng freshly cooked veggies or any other viand in the evening. Curfew here starts at 8pm so you have to buy early para hindi masaraduhan.

P15 each lang pero before Covid-19 pandemic ay P13, tapos lumiit pa.

I bought only 10 sticks for the five of us dahil may tira pang litsong manok kaninang tanghali.

I would also normally buy milk tea to accompany the barbecues, but I think the milk tea store now closes earlier than the usual.

Done installation of the aircon at almost 11pm na. They started after lunch and ended before midnight. Wow!

We let it run all night for testing.
