My New Portable Water Purifier
In my one week vacation in the Philippines, I was able to do some shopping. I shopped for canned goods, new long sleeves which I am excited to wear on Monday and lastly the portable water purifier. Before I left left for a vacation, I was canvassing here in Singapore the prices of the portable water purifier. It costs from 39 SGD to 69 SGD.

In the Philippines, I was able to see the same brand which is sold in Singapore. Sadly, the Brita brand is out of stock in Ace hardware. Though they sell a local brand which looks like a small version of a pail.  Looks fugly though.

When I went to the Makati area, I was able to buy the Brita 42629 Slim Pitcher in SM Makati. I was very happy that it only costs 700 PHP, almost half of the price in Singapore. The portable water purifier comes already with one filter which will last for 3 to 4 months. I also bought an extra Brita Pitcher Replacement Filters so all in all, I paid around 1,000 PHP. Not bad, right?

So what's up with my water purifier fetish? Well, I was doing a research weeks ago about water and if it affects the skin and the hair. As you all know, I am worried of my thinning hair. I learned that too much chlorine in the water can cause hair loss and also dries up our skin.

Back to my portable water purifier, aside from chlorine, it also removes residues and improves the smell of the water. The purifier water tastes better now and looks very clear.  Now, should I bathe with my purified water? Har har.

Thanks for this post. It reminds me again of buying one for us at home because I am just totally dependent on the water boy who keep dropping by at home and leave 5 containers every week which is already a lot of money to spend.

By the way, thanks for inviting me to your contest. I'll try to find a time to participate.

Have a great day.

I heard about the chlorine effect as well.. I think everyone should drink clean and safe water. We always buy mineral/purified from water station maybe I'll check that on SM Makati as well lapit lang sa work ko!

a better question would be, should I purify the water I used to bathe? (and drink it of course!)
