Yema Php 25 per bag 30 pcs  ($.47 per bag 30 pcs.)

My water tank got broken so I had it fixed and these are the materials.

Plumber fixing my water tank
One of the disadvantages of owning a house is that things get broken so you have to pay/save for maintenance 


  1. Hi :) Pls dont feed your dogs with sardines. It's bad for their health :(

    1. Please read carefully. It’s not for my dogs. It’s for two stray dogs which I called “my adopted”. They have been eating diapers.Canned sardines are better than diapers, no? Modesty aside, I feed Stark and Pepper Vitality.


I'd love to hear from you. I read and appreciate all comments. :)
