How to Make a Weighted Blanket

Wazzup Pilipinas!

There are so many baby gift ideas you can create at home. One of the most practical is a blanket gift. Such a gift is actually quite simple to make. Just be creative when creating gift baskets to make it memorable. But how to make a weighted blanket? Here are some helpful tips to follow:

Choose a container. Traditional gift baskets typically use wicker baskets, but you can still use other options such as a laundry basket, toy box, bucket, baby bath, or even a cart. Be creative, think of a useful container that the mother can use after emptying it.

Make a budget. Blanket items are adorable, and it's very easy to get carried away by choosing these attractive and cute items. With this, you will first need to establish a budget to avoid excessive spending.

Select blankets. When choosing blankets, consider the location and weather conditions. You should try to get blankets for each season. Get light blankets for the sunny season and thick blankets for the cold season.

Mattress Buying Guide

Your bed is the most important furniture in your home. The average person needs 6 to 8 hours of sleep per night. If you have an uncomfortable mattress, this time can lead to restless nights, uncomfortable back problems, and fatigue throughout the day.

Choosing the right euro top mattress for the job can be an overwhelming task. How do you know what to buy? Using this guide, you will discover the different features of the mattress to help you find the right mattress so you can sleep all night long.

A top mattress for every occasion

The comfort options when choosing your mattress are endless. Do you prefer a firm and supportive sleep surface? Or do you like to feel like you're sleeping on a cloud? Spring Air offers many mattress tops adapted to your comfort level:

Firm Support Mattress - A firm support mattress provides tighter springs and better surface support than other mattresses. This combination gives the mattress an ideal sleeping surface, ideal for people with back pain.

Plush Mattress - A plush mattress uses multiple layers of foam and fabric to give the mattress a soft, pleasant sleep surface. Plush mattresses also provide better edge support to help prevent rolling.

Pillow Top Mattress - A pillow top mattress uses layers of foam or fabric to help hold the body in place and prevent spilling. The soft materials woven in the upper part of the mattress give the cushioned top mattresses superior comfort.

Euro Top mattresses - Euro Top mattresses are designed with an additional top layer sewn on the top of the mattress and filled with memory foam or plush fabric. This means that you get a comfortable sleeping surface that prevents anyone from rolling on edge.

People are turning to the latex mattress to replace uncomfortable spring mattresses and memory foam. The latex mattress has become more affordable than ever before and has made many people realize the benefits of latex. This growing awareness has added to the popularity (well deserved).

One of the most important benefits of any solid-core mattress is the relief of pressure points. Unlike a coil spring mattress or spring mattress, a latex core mattress has strong support layers. A spring mattress presses against you and creates pressure points and hot spots where you are the heaviest and where your body needs the mattress to give the most. A latex mattress, however, is the most compliant where you need it.

The shape of your body (like the famous memory foam mattresses), latex will support your body throughout your shape and conform in a unique way to each sleeper. This gives a latex mattress an incomparable sensation. Many chronic insomniacs find restful sleep after transitioning to a latex mattress.

Although latex foam offers a similar feel, many people have had to switch to latex because they cannot stand the smell of their memory foam mattresses. The final advantage that latex offers Visco foam lies in the surface sensation of the bed. The latex has a slightly higher internal density and a firmer feeling than that of the shape memory foam.

Still a Mio line up scooter that caters a unique market. The difference is that it has a huge wheel, huge compartment with a 25 liter gas capacity. Also had a 12 volt charging station for your gadget. 
.                                                                                                        .
Speaking of gadgets I remember Atom did a tetchy stuff with his phone. speaking English-Portuguese translation while talking to taxi driver during our last Rio world cup tour. So I believe Yamaha did a cool decision of making him as modern Ambassador in delivering news and global unique stories. 

Anyways, at the Media Appreciation Year-End Party. Yamaha makes the press feel to be a celebrity at that time - as we do ramp, story telling, on the spot team photography, did sporting exercise and team building kind of activity. It was fun to be a part of Yamaha family for quite sometime. 

Most of the time we were covering events, enduring heat of the sun while drivers did the race and test drives those different motorcycle models. Aside from blogging on the back end as we return home.

DOTr, MARINA Launch Cavite – Manila Ferry Service; Rides Free for One Month

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Residents of Cavite may now reach Metro Manila faster by water travel, as the Department of Transportation (DOTr), through the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA), and with the help of the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA), and the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) formally launched the Cavite – Manila Ferry Service on December 8, 2019.

At the inaugural ceremony, DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade announced that starting tomorrow, 9 December 2019, passengers may start using the ferry service from the Cavite City Port Terminal going to the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Complex in Pasay City, and to the Liwasang Bonifacio Terminal (Plaza Lawton) in Manila, and vice versa.

“Andito kami ngayon pagka’t hangarin namin na ilunsad at i-revive ang ferry operation ng Cavite. Itong operation ng Cavite ay matagal ding nawala, matagal ding nakalimutan, kaya sabi namin, umpisahan, buhayin, at itaguyod ulit ‘yung ferry operation ng Cavite,” Secretary Tugade said.

The transportation chief also announced more good news: the riding public will get to avail of the ferry service for free until 9 January 2019, in coordination with Shogun Ships Co. Inc. and Seaborne Shipping Company Inc.

“Kausap ko ‘yung Shogun, Seaborne, ang sabi ko, ‘itong proyektong ito, gusto ko pamaskong handog sa mga Cavite, dapat ito libre. Hanggang matapos ang Kapaskuhan sa January 9, libre ang pamasahe sa ferry. Ito ‘yung pamaskong handog ng administrasyong Duterte sa inyo,” Secretary Tugade said.

Immediately following the launch, the ferry service kicked off its operations with an inaugural voyage from the Cavite City Port Terminal to the Liwasang Bonifacio Terminal (Lawton) in Manila. Upon arrival, it was announced that passengers who will ride the “MV Island Sabtang” will get free rides until 31 January 2019.

Two vessels will start operating tomorrow, with two to three more to be added next month to serve the routes.

Through the ferry service, travel time from Cavite City Port Terminal to Liwasang Bonifacio Terminal is estimated at 40 to 45 minutes. Meanwhile, travel time between the Cavite City Port Terminal and CCP, and vice versa, is around 15 minutes.

MV Island Sabtang from Shogun Ships Co. Inc. can accommodate 57 passengers, while MB Seaborne Mercury can accommodate 27 passengers. Fares for both rides are still under negotiation, as Secretary Tugade continues to push for lower prices.

For his part, Cavite City Mayor Bernardo Paredes thanked the DOTr and its attached agencies under the maritime sector for initiating the ferry service in a bid to help ease road traffic to and from Metro Manila.

“Sa ngalan ng ating pamahalaan at mamamayan ng ating siyudad, ang inyo pong lingkod ay lubos na nagagalak at nagpapasalamat sa inyong presensya upang matunghayan ang opisyal na pagbubukas ng Cavite-Manila Ferry Service. Ang nasabing proyekto ay makapagbibigay ng alternatibong pamamaraan ng transportasyon na tutugon sa ating kasalukuyang suliranin sa trapiko, na bago tayo makarating sa Metro Manila ay mag-uubos tayo ng mga 2-3 oras, ngayon, mga 40 minutes na lang,” Mayor Paredes said.

The Cavite – Manila Ferry Service is an offshoot of the "water jeepney” concept that was developed in Cebu, and was announced during the operational dry run of the Sangley Airport in Cavite. Secretary Tugade hopes that the riding public will utilize the service, as it offers a quick, convenient, and comfortable mode of transportation.

“Binubuhay natin ang konsepto ng ‘water jeepney’ sa Cavite, at sana ‘ho tangkilikin ninyo, para masabi natin, ‘okay ka, ferry ko’,” Secretary Tugade added.

Aside from the ferry service, the DOTr and MARINA also launched high priority maritime-related projects, such as the registration of recreational boats to boost tourism, and the opening of the MARINA Central Office Processing Center at the ParaƱaque Integrated Terminal Exchange for the benefit of Filipino seafarers.
