A Journey to Our New Home 4: The Installation of Our Dual Inverter Aircon

Before the final completion of our new home sweet home, it needs to install first our new dual inverter split type aircon to test that the electrical connections in our house is functioning correctly. Therefore even though the other parts of the house were not yet fully completed, the aircon was installed.

The question goes, why do we choose a dual inverter split type air conditioner rather than the traditional one. Well, it is mainly because, it consumes low energy! Yes, this LG dual inverter aircon has 70% less energy savings. Far lower electric consumption compared to the traditional window type aircon.

This aircon unit is 1.5 hp which can fully cool my whole master's bedroom!

When you buy this type of aircon unit, there is also a team who will install it in your home. They were technical people who will properly installed and test the unit in your home.   

There is a corresponding installation service charge you need to pay in addition to the total cost of the unit.

The installation team will also determine if the aircon is capable to cool the whole room. If not, they won't install the unit and they will ask you to upgrade your aircon's specs.

Meeting the Queens of the Universe

Our country, the Philippines proves that it is the land of the beauty queens! Yes, in the history of the beauty pageants, we already got four Pinays who win the prestige Miss Universe title.

Starting from Ms. Gloria Diaz in 1969, followed by Ms. Margie Moran  in 1973, then Ms. Pia Wurtzbach in 2015, and the most recent, Ms. Catriona Gray this 2018 - the Filipino people are lucky enough to have these four beautiful ladies bringing the pride and victory to our country.

But of all the Filipino people, I am the most lucky of them! Yes, because I got the privilege to meet, take a picture, and interview three of these beauty queens. Well, check this out below:


Except for Ms. Margie Moran, I already met Ms. Gloria Diaz, Ms. Pia Wurtzbach, and Ms. Catriona Gray! Let's take a look on my first photos with these three beauty queens:

With Ms. Gloria Diaz, Miss Universe 1969:




With Ms. Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Universe 2015:
