A new member 🐶

This year Easter falls on a very special day. A day that brings us much joy and happiness to the family.

image

Meet Mochi (our very new member to the family, a shih tzu puppy)

image

*excuse my tear stains on my eyes.. i was overjoyed that my adopted momma is finally bringing me home but a little nervous as it was my first car ride* 

Born on the 8th of February 2016 (on Chinese New Year day) she somehow was fated to be apart of our lives. It has been a couple of months that i have considered if it would be a good idea to have a pet dog and which breed i should be looking at. My daughter adores dogs (just like her momma). However,  I didn’t want to get a dog because it’s cute and realising later on that it doesn’t fit the family in terms of character and temperament. As a breeder’s daughter, i do know my breeds rather well and did my fare share in understanding and taking care of the little ones once upon a time ago.

I spent many long months of days and night thinking and considering all factors. It was simply a mere coincidence that this sweetheart crawled into our hearts and the moment i saw her with my children we (my breeder friend and i) simply knew she was the one.

image

Mochi is a sweet little young thing that is extremely calm and gentle in her actions from the way she walks, to the way she eats, to the way she plays, to the way she interacts with people. My son (being afraid of all dogs) had an amazing chemistry ONLY with her. That particular moment when i saw them both interacting was simply priceless.

12801302_10154026209263092_3573671638643915178_n

On Easter Day (27th March 2016), she was ready to come home with us and she had so much love and attention from the family. She was simply the little Star Sparkling our lives.

image

We are truly thankful that god has allowed us to be her adoptive parents and being apart of her life since she was 2 weeks old. Watching her grow days by days to week by week, has most certainly created that special bond and familiarity for her as well as us. It has most certainly created a special bond for her to adapt to our family. The process of her being home with us became extremely easy as she has been so used to seeing and sniffing us over the past few weeks.

12806243_10154037919328092_5676616838933788277_n

Hence, by night fall.. she pretty much fell asleep like a baby without any cries or drama.

100% Pure Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask Review

As a modern mom in training and a beauty junkie, i try to find the latest yet safest products in the market for myself and my family to use. It is undeniable that I am a huge fan of natural and botanical products. Recently i discovered a new product line that had me completely hooked. Known as 100% Pure it is made from 100% natural ingredients, and also 100% vegan developed and in USA.

image

100% PureAre the absolute most healthy, the most pure line of nourishing personal care made with the highest quality ingredients. Free of any harmful toxins that are common in other cosmetics because our skin absorbs. 100% Pure loves animals – and are completely cruelty free and charitable towards animal welfare. 

Upon discovering the brand, i had the luxury of trying out the Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask and ever since the day i tried it. I have been completely hooked.

Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask is a Super hydrating mask that delivers water to thirsty, dehydrated skin cells so complexion is rejuvenated, plump and refreshed. As a general fact, dehydrated skin shows lines and forms wrinkles, sagging and bumps. When your skin is hydrated, you look more rested and vibrant. “”Hydrating”” is adding water into your skin cells whereas “”moisturizing”” is adding oil – healthy skin needs a good combination of both. This hydrating mask immediately boosts water into skin cells, vegetarian hyaluronic acid locks in hydration while rose hydrosol and cucumber juice calms and soothes.

This awesome mask can be used whenever your skin needs an extra boost of hydration. You can apply a thick layer all around face. Leave on for 15 minutes or until mask has been absorbed. Clean with water or wait until fully absorbed and massage excess in for an overnight mask. It’s even gentle enough for around the eye area. What’s not to love, right?

This is me after taking a shower and about to apply on the Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask.

imageI have officially used the product for about almost 2 weeks now and i must say i am totally loving its effect given to my skin. The first 5 days (i used it alternative days) i left the product on my face for a good 15 minutes and cleanse it off. It did give that supple and hydrated feeling. I was genuinely in love and amazed by how wonderful the product had made my skin feel.

AND SO.. i decided to try to use it as SLEEPING MASK.

image

I squeezed a generous amount onto my skin. It has a very thick like paste and it smells of refreshing cucumber. I personally love the smell. It’s texture feels extremely nourishing too as i slather a generous amount over my cheeks, forehead, chin, nose, eyes and my neck!

imageI LOVED THE PRODUCT THAT MUCH THAT I’M EVEN APPLYING IT OVER MY NECK. I SWEAR IT IS THAT GOOD!

To some you may feel that it is a little rich as it is after all a cream like texture (not gel or lotion/watery kind of mask) but it is not at all oily and it absorbs into the skin nourishing and hydrating the skin at the same time. This product will no doubt give you the hydration that your skin needs.

I WAS TOTALLY AMAZED WHEN I WOKE UP THE NEXT DAY.

Upon washing my face, i see a natural glow on my skin (photo below is taken under natural lighting with NO MAKEUP) and needless to say my skin feels totally supple and hydrated. I am so in LOVE with 100% Pure Aqua Boost Hydrating Mask and would definitely recommend YOU to give it a try! It works AMAZING as a sleeping mask and a instant hydration mask that does amazing wonders and most importantly IT DOES NOT AT ALL CLOG THE PORES!

*Personally, i definitely see myself using this product more as a sleeping mask. I JUST LOVE IT! It’s so easy to use, saves time, no hassle and does amazing wonders for my skin all at the same time. What else could i ask for, right? *

Osmanthus & Rose Tea Jelly Recipe

Since my last post on Spring Break Indoor Fun Activities i had numerous emails asking about Osmanthus Jelly Recipe as some of you may have already known i added a twist to it. My basic guideline were based on a YouTube tutorial (Much thanks to Girls vs Apron youtube video).

However, i decided to make a batch that has both Osmanthus and Rose Tea.

Needless to say, it turned out to be a delightful hit as i watch both and my children enjoyed them up in a jiffy… I would say, it is perfect for tea/dessert on a warm day.

Benefits :

Osmanthus flower is naturally caffeine-free and consists of dried golden yellow flower buds. Loose leaf is typically made by placing the buds in an infuser and placing the infuser into your mug. The frangrant flower has a slightly sweet, buttery flavor and a flowery aroma. Furthermore it is known to be high in antioxidants.

Rose hips flower (the flowers which have swollen to seed) are an excellent source of vitamins A, B3, C, D and E. They also contain bioflavonoids, citric acid, flavonoids, fructose, malic acid, tannins and zinc.

Here’s my Version of the Osmanthus and Rose Tea Jelly Recipe. 

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 Teaspoon Osmanthus Flower
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Rose Flower (i find rose flower tends to have a stronger scent to it, hence if added too much is not advisable).
  • 3 Tablespoon of Wolvesberries (i had mine soaked for only 15 mins in warm water)
  • Konnyaku Powder

Method: 

Firstly, followed instructions behind the Konnyaku Powder for water quantity and directions and simmer to boil.

image

Gently stir and you will gradually notice that the texture will thicken slightly. This is normal. When this happens, i added in the Dried Osmanthus leaves as we as the Dried Rose leaves and let the aroma infused into the jelly.

image

Meanwhile, as the wolf berries are soaked and ready, i placed them into the respective mould without the water. Then, i added in the jelly mixture into the moulds and let them sit in the kitchen for a good 15 min before placing them in the fridge.

image

The next day, you have your Jelly cold and ready to be consumed. (YUP ITS THAT EASY!)

As i made 2 batches, the ones with the cute moulds were the Osmanthus and Rose Tea Jelly. Where as, the 3 tier moulds were just the Original Osmanthus Jelly.

image

Personally, i like the looks of the 3 tier ones just because it looks just somehow seems prettier. Wouldn’t you agree? Would definitely make another batch in the near future with this mould. Hope you enjoy trying out this recipe as much as i did! 🙂

Spring Break Indoor Fun Activities

The first term of school has just ended and now the children are on a week off for First Term Holiday Break (Spring Break). I love it when i have my children at home with me. They make my days more lively and we get to spend more bonding time together as a whole. For this week i have a number of exciting home activities planned out for them (much thanks to the internet that i have done some fun research in finding out some awesome activities to do together). It would most definitely have been more fun if we were able to head outdoors however, due to the fact that the haze is back it’s simply no longer advisable. Here are some of my favourite ideas that i have planned to try out during this Holiday. Hopefully some of you find them useful too!

image

Freeze Dancing. This is a complete no brainer Dance when the music is on and Freeze when the music stops. 🙂 Dancing around with the music on like no one is watching is actually a fun and light hearted thing to do with the children. I love and secretly enjoy being free and doing silly movements with them ( big bonus : i’m also burning my calories at the same time). Needless to say, my children loves and it too because once we play this game.. they never wants to stop!

image

Baking is a must to try if you haven’t already done so with your children. It creates this amazing bond while watching them gleam with happiness when they see their finished baked goodies. HeRe is a quick and easy recipe that i have recently found and am eager to try! Prehaps, you can try it too!

image

Jelly Making. My children and i loves to spend time in the kitchen together. (I guess you could have guessed that by now.) Jelly making was my little girl’s idea. She loves jelly hence i have looked up on the web for one of our all time favorite jelly recipe known as the Osmanthus Jelly Recipe. Click the link to find Girl vs Apron youtube Video for recipe and method.

imageMake a watercolour Masterpiece. My children loves art (especially my boy) and to get to make something together with both my children is definitely something that will be fun and fulfilling for all of us. Imagine how happy the children will be waking up seeing their masterpiece and thinking back that they did this with mommy. ( i think that is pretty special and most definitely you gained something that money can never buy! ) As Easter Celebration is around the corner, you can make an easter bunny Masterpiece. It’s surely going to be very special and memorable too!

imagePlant your own Beans. I like to choose my favourite Jar to do this with. It’s easy to do and its amazing how fast it grows. The whole process takes about 5-14 days and the children will be amazed and excited to see plus learn a little about planting and science at the same time. To do this, all you have to do is take about 2-3 green beans and plant it in a small transparent glass bottle with cotton/paper towel and water it a little everyday. Cool + Amazing + Exciting + Easy! Still unsure? Here’s a link to where i got this cool idea from with its steps and method. Sprouting Peas – A Growing Experiment

image

Make A Natural Play doh. My children loves to play with play doh. It’s something about rolling little balls in their hands and turning it into something creative and fun. This Spring i had this idea of making play doh with my children but instead of adding in colors, i wanted to try to add in herbs. It is really interesting and will be an advantage that they will also get to learn about herbs and familiarize themselves with its fragrance and senses. To make this refer below:

Ingredients:
3/4 fresh Herbs (basil/Lavender/Rosemary)
1.5 cups boiling water
2 cups plain flour
2 tbsps cream of tartar
1/2 cup fine salt
2 tbsps vegetable oil

Method:
Grind the herbs  into a watery paste by using a pounder and adding a few drops of warm water
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl
Add the oil and stir through
Then pour in the boiling water and stir until it comes together
Add the herb mixture, a little at a time. You can add water if it gets too sticky a little at a time.
Take it out of the bowl and knead it on a surface for a few minutes. During kneading it will lose its stickiness and become soft and stretchy.
If it’s still too sticky add a little more flour, if too dry a little more water. It’s pretty easy, Really!! 

Hope you enjoy these activities. I can’t wait to get down with them with my children for the next couple of days! 🙂

Sibling Rivalry – Getting Along with the Treasure Box Method.

imageMy littles ones has the most remarkable relationship with each other. When one of them is away or out and about they will be constantly asking about each other. They simply seem inseparable! Yet when they are together they have this really sweet yet amazing bond that occassionally ends up having sibling rivalry.

At times, everything they touch seems to end up in screams, cries and fights but sometimes they somehow get to work it out and play along and enjoy the essence of playing with each other. It is never a pleasant sight when things don’t go the way they wished and ended up in tears.

Hence, i resorted in searching for ways/methods that i can teach them about family importance and kindness resolutions. I basically tried everything from being stern, to being nice until i was pretty much lost and desperate for an effective solution. Parenting is never easy but i believe that it is one of the most fulfilling job that anyone can have.

image

Then, i discovered an amazing idea … it is the Treasure Box method. Every morning, i will explain to both my children how important it is to be nice to each other and the benefits of having each other to play with and to be able to do things with. Then, i take out THE TREASURE BOX.

My main aim and objective for The Treasure Box method is to allow both my children to understand and encourage the fundamental fact of their successful and fun moments together. It is a positive approach that i feel encourages better behaviour in a fun way.

How does it work? Easy. I just acknowledge and write down all the cooperative moments of them playing and working together and fill it up in the treasure box.

image

At the end of the evening, they look forward to opening The Treasure Box with me while i read back to them the little things they have done together. I acknowledged the not so pleasant feelings when they don’t as well but also explained to the both of them the benefits when they do.

These little message reminders in The Treasure Box are miracles that is designed to reinforce the ideas to the both of them that they are both happier and will be successful when they are kind to each other. Needless to say, i can also tell that they look pretty please with themselves upon reading and hearing me acknowledging their positive little messages i have written for them when i read it out loud at the end of the evening.

Now both my children tries their very best to work together in achieving the simple goal of filling up The Treasure Box with “nice things they do together and for each other”. 🙂

KL City Dentist Review

Are you one of those who is afraid of the Dentist?

As a little girl, i have been blessed with rather straight teeth. Oral hygiene is something i have learnt from a very young age as well. I remember when i was a little girl ( around 6-7 years old of age ) i had my first visit to the dentist in UK. (My family were there to pursue education and i was blessed to have had the opportunity to had a chance to study there for 4 years for my early education.) My very first experience to the dentist was the most pleasant experience i have ever had. I was taught proper ways to maintain my teeth, and the importance of oral health.

Ever since then (Thanks to my good experience) I never really feared going to the dentist!

When i came back to Malaysia and had to continue my education, in a school in Penang i was extremely lucky as i had a dentist within the school compound (Mind you, this is a public school and not a private or International School). I visited her (the dentist, which unfortunately i can’t remember her name) probably 3-4 times in a year as i liked to have my teeth polished with that familiar strawberry flavoured after taste in my mouth. 🙂

To find a good Dentist can be rather daunting. I often hear people’s comments and fears about going to the dentist being afraid of pain and sensitivity or the fear that it MIGHT be painful. However, i strongly feel and believe that to adopt a good healthy oral hygiene is important and should start from young. It is important to bring the children to a good dentist to have a pleasant first hand experience with them so that in the future they would know the importance of going to the dentist as well as basic oral health care at home.

Hence, today i’m sharing with you my first hand experience over at KL City Dentist. A Dentist that i can honestly say i have full confidence over in bringing my family for regular check ups and maintenance.

image

image

image

The view of this place is amazingly beautiful and the coziness of its environment is utmost comfortable.. allowing each patient to feel less nervous.

image

image

Over at this Clinic there are 3 Doctors that specialises in various aspects of Dentistry.

Dr.Mong Xeng Tien 

Dr.Tan Huann Lan

Dr. Su Kien Looi 

My Doctor for the day was the VERY HANDSOME Dr. Mong Xeng Tien. A professional Dentist with extremely gentle hands.

image

As i entered the room, it was breath taking and beautiful. The 360 view of KL City was very calming and relaxing unlike the usual 4 walls concept of a normal clinic.

image

This is their room 2. Which also has a beautiful breath taking interior design.

image

My consultation with Dr. Mong was extremely pleasant. He explained to me his expertise to make me understand and that i am in complete good hands. He was extremely professional and knowledgable in oral health.

As he checked my teeth, he also suggested that i had an x-ray to make sure my old fillings were all intact and doesn’t have anything hidden inside or in between them.

image

I gladly opened my mouth as he used his magic hands to work his magic for my teeth. Checking to see what was required to be treated one by one.

image

It was completely relaxing as the clinic is equipped with the latest technology and equipments. At one point, the screen in front of me changed to YouTube Channel with Michael Buble singing one of his hits. This definitely makes the whole experience of going to KL City Dentist that much more pleasant as it wasn’t boring or nerve wrecking at all as my attention was mainly diverted to the YouTube Channel playing in front of me.

image

This is the X-ray of my teeth. He explained to me that all was in perfectly good condition. 🙂

image

He then started doing his magic of cleaning, scaling and polishing.

image

Here are the before and after photos of his my teeth.

Before (Upper) with the yucky stains!

If you in Kuala Lumpur and are looking for a gentle Dentist Doctor to go to with the latest equipped technology, equipments and yet comfortable experience. I would highly recommend you to see Dr. Mong Xeng Tien. He is by far one of the gentlest dentist doctor i met thus far. My experience with him was not painful at all. I would highly recommend him as a dentist for you to bring your children as well as basic oral health and hygiene check up should most definitely start and practice from a young age.

Jerlynn’L Sharing Love through Everyday Living

I love it when i get invited to events. It gets ten fold better when i can bring my children with me!

imageIt was my first time hearing about Jerlynn’L also known to be the sister company of Shizens (known to be well known for their Cosmetics range of products.

Jerlynn’L on the contrary is known to be targeted towards children. Their concept is nature based using botanicals and natural ingredients safe enough for both the environment as well as our children.

imageI was utmost delighted to find out more about this brand especially with the ‘hoo and haa’s circulating in Facebook at the moment about Johnson’s admitting to having cancerous chemicals in their products. If you’re not aware.. you can read HeRe  for further information. Many momma’s i know have personally stopped using Johnson’s and pharmacy’s around my area are currently having Johnson’s products recalled back to the respective agents and factories as not many dares to purchase them.

imageJerlynn’L on the contrary embarks its virtuous journey in promoting proper skin care habits to children advocating preventive and regenerative benefits to restore their skin health. Their basic range of products includes Hair Wash, Hair Conditioner & Detangler, Bug No More, Daily Moisture Lotion and Body Wash.

Jerlynn’L also carries products to protect the skin from the sun and for our babies little bottom as well.

image

For the face they have, brightening cream as well as the basic body & face cream and Sunblock with SPF 30.

imageIt is believable that to sustain good skin health starts early on and with good skin care habits, skin should not be complicated but efficacious and safe. Hence, Prevent (for protective) Nurture (for maintenance) and Renew (for repairing) is utmost important and can be found in the products provided.

Its ingredients are carefully selected using earth – sourced ingredients to cater for children’s skin that requires different nourishments from adults skin.

During the product sharing event they shared a creative concept of sharing love through everyday living. Being an art lover i was extremely in love with the idea of DIY Soap Making, DIY Cotton Candy Making, and last but not least DIY Popcorn Making. Their concept was not only creative but it encourages bonding sessions with the children.

image

Here is us (me and the children) playing/making creative art using Play Doh like Soap. It is so amazing that soap itself can be created in such a manner whereby the children can use to create something that inspire them at the same time they can use it to wash their hands!

image

Both my young ones were very involve in the activity session we shared.

image

My son took a personal liking with their lotions which is made from natural botanicals which smells awesomely good.

image

As we continued on in creative art, i could see how much my children is enjoying themselves.

image

Needless to say, they weren’t the only ones. 😛

image

Next Joey Yeo, also known as the Brand Manager shared with us in detail about their newly launched products and allowing us to have a first hand experience in scooping up what looks like ice cream which in fact is an air freshener for the room.

image

I sincerely thought it was pretty cool and unique.

image

Being a MOM, Eucalyptus is no doubt one of my favourite scent. Did you know that Eucalyptus has amazing and wonderful health benefits which are well known to have a wide range of properties including anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, decongestant, deodorant, antiseptic, antibacterial, stimulating, and other medicinal qualities.

image

It was pretty cool and challenging at the same time to scoop up a dollop of ice cream like freshner as it kept on falling apart.

image

When i finally was successful, i couldn’t help but i was gleeing from cheek to cheek. 😛

image

I had a wonderful time at the event and i am utmost grateful to be invited yet having to participate in learning a great deal about a wonderful brand and products that brings more good than harm to my little ones.

image

As you can see… we all had an amazing time especially the children!

Family funtastic at KidZania Kuala Lumpur!

imageA couple weeks back we (the family and myself) were invited to have a family day over at KidZania Kuala Lumpur! It was our first time ever as we (the husband and i) have always somehow thought that our kids were too young to explore in this indoor learning playground.

Boy was i ever so wrong!

The KidZania experience is about real-life experiences, empowering, inspiring and educating kids through role-play. It was indeed an eye opening experience not only for the children but for the husband and myself as well. Featuring over 90 professions working within a real economy, KidZania allows kids to transcend the boundaries of the grown up world to play their part in a community and also experience the tricks-of-the-trade of their possible dream careers.

imageOur day started with the children extremely excited for a fun filled adventurous day. As we entered the building towards KidZania the children had no idea of what is to be expected nor did the husband and i. I was completely amazed at how organised and systematic everything seems. They followed a certain procedure whereby upon getting our tickets the children and ourselves (the husband and i) were given a wrist tag that we had to wear at all times within the facility.

image

The children were also given a cheque each which is suppose to be used to withdraw cash when we head on inside!

image

Thats us.. being a little crazy just before entering.

image

Upon entering, we headed over to the bank and the children used their cheque to redeem their cash. It was indeed an eye opening experience for them. I was pretty much amazed at everything i see within the facility.

image

Once the children had their cash on hand.. it was fun time!

image

We first headed over to the optometrist where both the children had a wonderful time and role play in understanding the importance of taking care of their eyes.

image

They were both extremely attentive over what the ‘kakak’ (Big Sister) explained and shared with them on the do’s and don’t about caring for the eye. Each of them even had the opportunity to learn how to remove and wash the lenses of the spectacles provided. I was shockingly amazed by how curious both my children were about the occupation of an optometrist.

image

Thank you ‘Kakak’ for her time and warm effort in explaining through all the little questions my children had asked that day!

image

We then walked along and the fire engine had caught our eye. Needless to say, the children wanted to give it a go.

image

They gave their 101% attention during their role play as the fire girl and fire boy.

image

They even had an amazing time having a drill of what a fire girl/boy should do when there is a fire.

image

It was simply brilliant and to watch them interact the way they did that day was simply priceless.

Moving on was the Vitamin Factory. This place is no doubt any kids haven! Upon making payment with the cash they have earned from being an optometrist and a fire girl/boy, they entered the factory to learn how to make Vitagen.

image

Each child were given a chance to mix and stir while learning the process of how Vitagen is made. It was truly a wonderful experience for the children and to watch their faces bloom into excitement when they saw how a vitagen popped out from the other end of the machine was simply priceless.

image

image

The next stop was encouraged by ME. I thought it was pretty cool to let the children learn how important it is to take care of their teeth. Hence, the children went into becoming a Dentist.

image

Both kids had an funfastic adventure being a dentist digging and removing ‘monsters’ (tar tar and black stuffs) from the toy model on the chair.

image

image

They children each participated in learning the right way to brush their teeth and the importance of taking care of their teeth as well. My son was extremely helpful (as you can see from the photo below) 😛

image

We then head over to collect some photos taken on that day. It was simply adorable that i couldn’t decide on which to pick. >.<

image

Our last occupation for the day were one of the children favourites. They wanted to learn about being a police girl and boy.

image

Little details hanging outside the police force.

image

Being extremely efficient and helpful, they played their role very well and was one of the favourites within the police force.

image

Salute to the boy

image

Salute to the police girl.

image

The idea of role play has given me a whole new perspective and i strongly believe that KidZania is simply a superb way of learning while allowing children have a taste of how our realistic world is like. It teaches them things that words alone can never be enough to express of fully understand. Role playing in KidZania opens up a new level of education and entertainment. I would highly recommend them to parents who would wish for their children to learn through play.

The one thing i regret most was not to bring my children here much earlier. I would most certainly look forward in bringing them to KidZania once again. Thanks for KidZania, our family day was indeed FUNFASTIC!!

It is an understatement when i express how filthy the water in my neighbourhood is. This may be caused by various factors such as construction happening in my area… but as a momma i would do whatever i can and whichever way i know how for the benefit of my family.

image

Upon installing 3M water filter and having used it for a couple of months now, i am able to confidently say that i can’t live without it! Installation was fast and easy and today i can honestly say that I have completely rely and trust the filtration provided by 3M water filter.

It has been so convenient that we occasionally drink directly (straight away) without boiling from 3M DWS2500T-CN model. This particular model and CTM-01 has a brilliant technology to prevent bacteria growth from inside filter. (YES.. bacteria growth occurs in filters that are not maintain well which leads to catching a bacteria infection/illness if and when our immune system is down). I love DW2500T-CN model most as it can filter bacteria up to 99.9% as per 3M has claimed.

The significance of before and after installing 3M water filter is extremely drastic for me and my family. Now washing clothes no longer stains as the water is now 100% clear (unlike before sometimes they come out brownish like Teh O’ colour and i have to wash them clothes 2-3x just to get the stains removed) and needless to say i am so much more at ease knowing that my family is drinking and even bathing in cleaner, clearer filtered water. Hence, skin sensitive issues i am 100% sure it is not coming from the water that we bath in.

image

There are so many water filters out there and honestly, with all the marketing and promotions offered from each company provided it is really hard to choose and to know which suits the family best… HOWEVER i am genuinely comfortable and thankful for coming across 3M Water Filtration. As i did my research and find out more about it.. i am grateful of how it has offered me and my family clean, clear tasting water at an affordable price. It is reliable and i can honestly say that i trust every single drop of water from 3M water filter. I would most certainly recommend my readers to have an open mind and do some research on choosing the best water filtration to suit for your family and should most definitely consider what 3M water filter have to offer if you need to have one fixed.
