Aion Plas Chamois: For That Squeaky-Clean Finish!

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

Have you ever experienced cleaning any glass surface with an old cloth or cotton, but instead of achieving a squeaky-clean finish, you're frustrated with the many streaks and bits of thread-like lints left on the glass? Well, we experience that all the time. So, in our quest of finding a cleaning material that will give us that squeaky-clean, streak-free and lint-free finish, we tumbled upon Aion Plas Chamois.

A closer look at Aion Plas Chamois

Aion Plas Chamois is a powerful cleaning tool developed in Japan's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. It was even hailed as Japan's #1 best-selling super-absorbent towel for its top quality and high performance. Here are just some of the reasons why Aion Plas Chamois is Japan's #1:

  • CAN EASILY BE DRAINED - Unlike regular towels or clothes, Aion Plas Chamois can be easily drained by squeezing. Other towels, although already squeezed, are still too damp or too wet that you cannot use them again for drying any surface.

  • EXCELLENT ABSORPTION PROPERTIES - Experienced bringing a wet piece of cleaning material and noticed that wherever you go, you leave a trail of water spills on the floor? This happens often with cleaning materials that cannot hold and absorb water. With Aion Plas Chamois, you no longer need to worry about water spills on the floor because it can hold and absorb liquid up to 300% of its total weight.

  • MAKES ONE CLEAN WIPE - While other cleaning materials needed to be wiped at least three times on any surface to achieve that smooth finish, Aion Plas Chamois can do it with just one wipe. This is good news for people who consider cleaning a boring and exhausting activity, like me! Plus, Aion Plas Chamois comes in different colors, so it will truly liven up and put a bit of color in your cleaning experience

  • CLEANS WITHOUT LEAVING ANY MARK - With its soft and fine-textured properties, no one ever need to worry about marks and lints. Aion Plas Chamois cleans without putting a single scratch on your windows, and without leaving any lints.

Aion Plas Chamois has all these amazing features thanks to its propriety patented PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol) Sponge technology. Aion's PVA Sponge has a capillarity structure of three dimensional network of micro pores, hence, it has an amazing water absorption and water retaining properties.

To help you  give a concrete idea how Aion Plas Chamois exactly works, check out this video:


To date, we've been a regular user of Aion Plas Chamois ever since we discovered it. Here are just some of the ways with which we use Aion Plas Chamois:

Drying pets: I grew up in a family of pet lovers, and that's probably the reason why I can't remember a time when we didn't have any pets to complete our family. Every weekend, it has been a traditional way of family bonding to bathe our pets. Ever since, after our pets have taken their baths, we would dry them using towels (regular towels people use). This proved to be difficult because of the following reasons:
(1) The towels were too long for our pets that they sometimes touch the floor, getting it dirty.
(2) The towels easily get wet but squeezing them doesn't really dry them out. Often times, we have to use two towels for one dog to dry them properly.

It was actually my father who thought of using Aion Plas Chamois to dry our pets. And I guess that it's one of the best drying materials for any pets. Aion Plas Chamois is shorter than the usual towels, thus, it won't touch the floor while you're drying your pets. Once it gets wet, you could simply squeeze the water out and it instantly becomes dry, thereby providing more room for water absorption.

Even my pet cat gets excited over the idea of taking a bath with Aion Plas Chamois! :)

Cleaning mirrors: Our mirrors, specially the one we use in the bathroom, accumulates so much dirt that it's sometimes impossible to see your reflection. We've tried using tricks we've read from the internet (using wet newspapers, cottons, old cloths, pouring vinegar) but they all proved to be failures. Using them would almost always leave smudges, streaks or lints on our mirrors, which was kind of irritating because it was nearly impossible removing all those tiny bits of lints. With Aion Plas Chamois, cleaning mirrors (or any other glassy surface) was easy-breezy because it cleans without leaving any marks!

Notice how the marks on the left picture (before) were gone after a few wipes with Aion Plas Chamois!

Cleaning cars: I remember one time, when my dad was cleaning his car's windows using an old cloth, he accidentally put a scratch mark on his window. Turns out that the old clothe's size label (found at the back of the neck where you'll see the clothe's size and care label) was too rough for the car's window. Aside from that, using old clothes, or any other chamois of low quality, would require at least three wipes to totally dry the window. This made the car-cleaning more exhausting than it already is for my dad (who loves his car so much that he washes it every day). So imagine his relief when he used Aion Plas Chamois for the first time. With its super-absorbent quality, all he needed to do was a single wipe and the window instantly dried!

Cleaning sinks: Even though we know that it's perfectly normal for kitchen sinks to be frequently wet, my mother insists on keeping our sink dry and sleek. Maintaining our kitchen sink dry was really hard, especially when you're using an old piece of cloth. Wiping the wet sink with an old piece of cloth would often scatter the water - which gets our floor wet too, since the water from the sink gets pushed to the edges. Aion Plas Chamois does the opposite: it absorbs water while it is being wiped on any surface.

Aion Plas Chamois: Great for cleaning sinks and avoiding water spills on the sink's edges!

Drying kitchen utensils: After washing any kitchen utensils, we would always dry them out using any clean piece of cloth or towel before storing them in the cupboard and cabinet. We noticed that this was a bad idea since every time we would these utensils come eating time, we'd spend minutes trying to lift off the lints or cotton waste on our dining ware. With Aion Plas Chamois, we no longer have to worry about any lint or cotton waste left on our plates or spoons.

Lint-free kitchen utensils, only with Aion Plas Chamois!

My Chooks-To-Go Kwelavan Experience!

Thursday, October 23, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

In the recently held Blogapalooza event at the SMX Convention Center of SM Aura, one of the booths that undoubtedly caught the attention of all attendees was Chooks-to-Go. I guess that bloggers can't help but flock to this fun-filled booth, thanks to the inviting aroma of their whole roasted chickens, no matter how concealed they were, plus their exciting and award-winning game: the Kwelavan.  Add to that their flaming (or rather, roasting) red-themed booth and their equally flaming hot crew (you can achieve their looks by having the Chooks-To-Go diet daw, as mentioned by's Mr. Vince). :D

So, upon seeing Chooks-To-Go's booth, I immediately registered and waited for my turn to experience their super nakakaaliw and kwelang-kwelang KWELAVAN. Even if I was still waiting for my turn, I was already thinking up of ways to top the other bloggers' scores. I listened for the crew's tips and guides ("dahan-dahan lang sa paglipad", "talon agad", "sa harap ka sumuntok") while still managing to smile and strike a decent-looking "stolen" pose as there were at least 2 Chooks-To-Go camera men in the vicinity plus a whole lot of other bloggers armed with their cameras. I also had to think of ways not to look too wacky on the photos (while playing in the Kwelavan) and at the same time not to be too mindful of how I would look like on the photos/videos since this might affect my scores and my overall Kwelavan experience (competitive lang talaga hahaha).

While waiting for my turn: I'm next!

What exactly is Kwelavan? In the simplest sense... it's a van full of kwela! It's an interactive gaming console that brings out the ka-kwelahan and kakulitan of every Pinoy. It's aptly named too because the game itself is Pinoy na Pinoy (parang Chooks-To-Go, proudly Pinoy). The game features the newest characters of Chooks-To-Go, ang mag-bestfriend na sina Tom Crew at Chikoy. Kwelavan is also an award-winning game: it has been awarded BEST ADVERGAME and BEST GAME ENGINE during the Philippine Game Festival 2014. How cool is that? :)

So, here goes my kwelang Kwelavan experience: At the start of the game, every player should position themselves inside the label on the floor which says: LARO DITO. You can already sense how Pinoy na Pinoy this game will be. Once positioned, players should imitate the pose shown on the screen (a person standing with both hands up). This is so that the game would know if you will be playing individually or with a partner. The game will then randomize the three different games you will play (out of the five games available). I got: Human Tetris, Chookstacle Course and one other game whose name I forgot, huhu (Jus-Ku-Po, ulyanin na haha). But I'm guessing that the game's name is close to Slice A Chooks.

Ready to play? Pwes, laro na dito!

First task of the game: GAYAHIN ANG POSE!

Register in the game either individually or with a partner by simply imitating the pose

Doing the first task of the game: ready nang lumipad, este, maglaro! :)

After the game has registered you and your Kwelavan partner, the game will then randomize the three games you'll play. I got: Human Tetris, Chookstacle Course and Slice A Chooks

Humas Tetris: Hold mo lang yang pose mo para manalo!

Chookstacle Course: Ready ka nang tumalon at yumuko?

Pag may nakitang chookstacle, tumalon o yumuko agad!

Slice A Chooks: Bago kainin ang masarap kahit walang sauce na Chooks-To-Go, make sure na sliced na ito! Iwasan lang ang sauce - hindi na kailangan yan!
Image Source

In Human Tetris, we had to imitate three different poses shown on the screen. In Chookstacle Course, we had to jump or duck to avoid the obstacles, this was pretty simple since there were cues like "Talon!" and "Yuko!". And lastly, in Slice A Chooks, we had to slice the chickens by doing karate-like moves while avoiding the hot sauce. Of the three games that I played, I think Human Tetris was the most challenging. I had to imitate wacky poses and maintain my balance while the game is processing/scanning the pose. I was able to fit in all three poses until the hip part only, pero tamang tama kasi yung hip part ang paborito ko sa Chooks To Go roasted chickens! :)

Nag-enjoy na nga ako sa Kwelavan, nanalo pa ako ng prizes! After playing, the Chooks-To-Go crew were very eager to give me my photo, voucher and umbrella. What more can I ask for? Check out my Chooks-To-Go prizes after playing Kwelavan! :)

What's better than a Chooks-To-Go roasted chicken? Edi.. discounted Chooks-To-Go roasted chickens! :)

Thank You Card: Ang sweet ng Chooks-To-Go! Kasing sweet ng kanilang Sweet Roasted Chicken! Saktong-sakto yung photo kong mukhang touched sa sweetness ng Chooks-To-Go! :)

Tamang-tama sa maulang panahon ang prize na 'to!

All in all, Kwelavan absolutely made my Blogapalooza event more awesome than it already is. I also got to feel like an artista because after playing, I was interviewed by the Chooks-To-Go crew! :)

Red Brick Road of Teresa

Thursday, October 23, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

And because it's almost November (the new "hell month" or "sabaw month" for UP students ever since the calendar shift), we're starting to write our graded essays that will undergo class workshops. For the first essay, we could write either about a place (travelogue) or a profile (any person except for ourselves). I chose to write a travelogue because I've been meaning to write about Teresa for the longest time. For people who love PUP Sta. Mesa / Teresa, please don't get me wrong for the first few paragraphs. Believe me, I've come to love PUP / Teresa as much as you do, even if I didn't study there. PUP is home to most of my closest high school buddies, and home to one of the most cheapest street food hubs in the Metro - and I absolutely LOVE street food :) 

At the end of my essay, I've included some of my Creative Writing: Nonfiction classmates' comments. Feel free to comment on my essay too! Whether they be positive or negative, as long as they're written in a constructive way. :) I'll be surely needing those comments, plus a few suggestions would also be nice, since I'll be submitting a revision of this essay by December.


Red Brick Road of Teresa*

Once again, I found myself wondering what to do in my 6-hour long vacant period. A little planning might have helped but I've always believed that indecision at the last minute always pushes you to the best destinations. I was talking on the phone with one of my high school buddies when I mentioned by dilemma. "Why are you even asking?" she said. "Go to Teresa". At that time, Teresa seemed to be a not-so-good idea. Judging my travel time from UP to PUP Sta Mesa and vice versa, I already found myself saying "no" to the idea. Besides, I don't even know how to travel to Teresa. 

But there I was, commuting and leaving the sanctuary that UP is for the noisy, crowded and dirty Teresa (as described by my high school buddies who study there). Teresa was seven LRT stations away from Katipunan, but I opted to ride their famous "patok" jeepneys. Riding the jeepney was easier because Teresa is located at the jeepneys' terminal, so no worries of getting lost there (all passengers will alight at the Teresa terminal, also known as Stop N Shop). Alighting at Teresa, I already wanted to get back to the jeepney for a ride back to UP (Katipunan). The place was just too loud and too crowded for me. It felt as if the noise was invading my very soul, probably because I was so accustomed to UP's more serene environment. Two minutes in Teresa, and the place literally made me feel like my senses were being assaulted.

"Once you're on the red brick road, you're on the right place", said my high school buddy. So I guess I'm not lost. This half-kilometer (my distance estimation) stretch of red brick road became famous for its student-on-a-tight-budget meals and merchandises sold t the lowest price possible. One of the first few things that you'll notice about Teresa is that it smells like something is always on the fry (using frying oil for the nth time), as if the whole community's diet all year round was anything deep-fried. The place also smelled and looked like it never once experienced rain: everything was dry and everywhere felt scorching hot.

There is almost no green life in view, save for the few potted plants in front of establishments to prevent vehicles from parking. The road is so crammed with a variety of vehicles: cars, pedicabs, trucks and motorcycles that one must have the skills of a public transportation driver to pass through this busy and crowded road. Not one place was uncommercialized. Every single place was utilized from small kiosks that sell halo-halos served all-year round and delicacies from different regions in the country (sisig, piaya, palitaw, biko, etc) to the Daniel Padilla stores (humorously labeled as such because ♫ ne seye ne eng lehet..) that sell school supplies, kikay kits, KPop/JPop items, stationery items, and whatever thing you could think of. Teresa is also home to calamares cuts as big as palm for Php 5, and isaws as long as unsharpened Mongol and as wide as the average smartphones for Php 5 (beat that Mang Larry).

As mentioned earlier, Teresa has noise levels that can rival that of Divisoria's during the Christmas season. There's the sound of the PNR train that passes by every 15 minutes or so. Curse words are heard so frequently that after an hour's stay in Teresa, you'll hear yourself saying one.

I've learned to love all of Teresa's "perfect imperfections" primarily because of the people in Teresa, They're as loud and as warm as the place itself, personalities I failed to find in the coldness and isolation of UP. Even on my first visit to Teresa, I found myself smiling and laughing at the conversations of a group of friends walking inches from me. I found myself being given an extra serving of rice and sabaw by the friendly Manang ("extra sabaw para kay ateng sabaw"). I found myself laughing and joking with the energetic and friendly siomai vendor ("dine-in o let it go?").

I found myself yearning for that 6-hour long vacant period, for a trip back to the red brick road of Teresa.

Have you ever been so stressed you made a poem? Well I did. Here goes:

Gusto kong mamundok
At tumira sa ilalim ng langit
At humuni na parang ibong naliligo sa banyo
At gumapang sa damuhan na parang asong bagong ligo
At magmuni-muni
Ng kahit anong hindi tungkol sa buhay
Ano ba ang "kahit ano"
Na hindi tungkol sa buhay?

So how bad is it? Hahaha :)
