How to Prepare Your Home for a Newborn

5:55:00 AM


Welcoming a child into your home can be exciting! Most people do it to start the next step of their life, while others face it as more of a surprise step forward. Either way, when the child is finally there, we all want to be as prepared as possible. But, unfortunately, it can be hard to bridge the gap from living with no children to suddenly having a screaming child in your home!

Here are the top things to do to prepare your household for this new child and why it's not as hard as it seems!

Set Up A Sanitary Diaper Station

Nothing is as important as being ready for the number of diapers you're going to have to change. Whistler homes for sale could be filled to the brim with the number of diapers a child needs in a year, so it's a good idea to be as prepared as possible going into this. Make a station that has a large flat surface that you can pad, and get either a trash can with a lid or a diaper genie that will allow for you to take the trash out as soon as you need to but still store a day's worth of diapers without stinking up your entire home. Ensure that this is near a bathroom so you can wash your hands after.

Discuss Schedules for Who Helps the Child and When

Babies need help around the clock. This means constant feedings, ensuring that they're clean and cared for, and paying attention to what their needs are at every moment. Unfortunately, as human beings, we need sleep! It's okay to get overwhelmed, but if you have a partner, you can use each other for breaks and ensure the child is cared for. Talk to your family about setting a schedule that will keep the child happy and safe.

Install A Baby Monitor of Some Type

Baby monitors are useful because they allow us to keep a keen eye and ear out when our children need our help. Instead of having to get up and check on them every couple of minutes, you can use the baby monitor to ensure they're sleeping well and doing alright. These monitors can also be useful for when you move your baby out to their nursery, so you can keep an eye on them without having them sleep in your room every night.

Place the Crib In Your Room for the First Couple of Weeks

Although we set up nurseries to be our go-to place for our babies, we often surprise ourselves by needing them as close to us as possible when we first bring them home. There's nothing wrong with this! Instead of putting your child in a separate room for the first couple of weeks, it's a good idea to keep the crib in your room. This will make it easier to get used to when the baby will wake you up, as well as help your body set into the schedule of getting up every couple of hours.

Strengthening Information About Fire Prevention with Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance's Webinar with BFP

9:57:00 PM


Just like with our health, prevention is better than cure. One of the best ways to prevent fire and damages on properties is to be informed. This month is the season to be more aware of the surroundings and situations.  The damage of getting your house razed by fire is insurmountable; fires at home can break out anytime and anywhere and can damage livelihood, household appliances, and more. In 2018, the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) recorded a total of 14,316 incidents of fire from January until December.

This is why every March is Fire Prevention Month in the Philippines, and BFP’s campaign for this month is safety consciousness among our people every day of the year as a positive preventive approach to a problem that can be solved by more caution, vigilance, sobriety, the exercise of common sense and respect for the law.” It is a campaign that focuses on exercising vigilance at home and keeping oneself knowledgeable on the best way to protect your home and family from destruction brought about by fire.

“Cebuana Lhuillier has always committed to being of help to the Filipinos at all times, and our call for Fire Prevention is a reflection of that, our insurance products that aim to keep our clients protected at all times is a complementary effort to our advocacy for this month,” said Jean Henri Lhuillier, President, and CEO of Cebuana Lhuillier.

PJ Lhuillier’s insurance arm, the Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Brokers, Inc (CLIB), has also expressed its support for BFP’s campaign through the years. It has been a staunch advocate of having Filipinos insured, posting almost a 35% contribution to the total number of insured Filipinos through microinsurance. CLIB has also worked together closely with the Insurance Commission in promoting microinsurance in the country, they have settled over more than 5,300 million claims worth over Php 500 million they have serviced over 16,500 claimants. Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Brokers’, Inc. is also the first and only ISO-certified insurance broker in the Philippines.

Also launched this month in conjunction with the celebration of Fire Prevention Month is a promo dubbed “Panalo ka sa ProtectMax” where clients of the ProtectMax product of CLIB get a chance to win Php 25,000. The promo is open to all clients who will purchase 5 ProtectMax COCs; these 5 COCs are equal to the e-raffle entry. For the promo, 20 lucky raffle winners will be selected and will win Php 25,000.

“This Fire Prevention month, it is very important to drumbeat awareness on fire safety and prevention, and the importance of being protected. CLIB believes that an information and education drive is very important to ensure that everyone is well-informed against conflagration,” said Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Brokers’ Inc., Jonathan Batangan.

Mang Inasal Welcome Diners with Strict Safety Measures

9:31:00 AM

The new norm in every restaurant, this is probably the best way to keep everyone safe while enjoying our favorite food. As parts of the country steadily ease restrictions on community quarantines, the restaurant industry is also preparing to resume dine-in services which have been placed on hold because of the extended lockdown.

People have been longing to enjoy a meal at their favorite dining places, but many still feel apprehensive and cautious.

Each customer undergoes a mandatory temperature check and passes through a foot bath disinfection mat as they enter the store.

One well-loved Pinoy restaurant that has been preparing to welcome back its loyal customers is Mang Inasal, reputed for its bestselling nuot-sa-ihaw sarap Chicken Inasal. Knowing how much people have missed their favorite Mang Inasal meals and seeking to allay their fears, Mang Inasal has set in place strict protocols to ensure delicious food and safe dining experience for their customers.

Floor markings are placed to guide customers on proper physical distancing.

Anyone who wants to enter the store must wear a face mask. The customer’s temperature will be checked and only those with temperature of 37.5-degree Centigrade and below will be allowed to enter. A footbath disinfection mat is also placed at the entrance. Only a limited number of customers are allowed inside the store at any given time. Sanitizers are provided for customers at the door entrance, counter table, and wash area for their use.

In keeping with the Department of Trade and Industry guidelines, Mang Inasal is requesting customers to fill out a Customer Health Form before being allowed to enter the store.

Counter barriers keep both store crew and customers safe.

For in-store safety, physical distancing is closely monitored as floor markers set one-meter distance for counter queues. Contact-less payment is enforced with the use of acrylic cash tray and acrylic barriers. Meanwhile, foot knobs are used as restroom doors, and regular disinfection of facilities and the sanitation of workers form part of Mang Inasal’s stringent safety protocols.

Dine-in customers are enjoined to be seated apart for physical distancing purposes. One-meter table-to-table distance segregates diners while in selected Mang Inasal stores a table barrier is placed for face-to-face dining.

Mang Inasal encourages electronic, cashless transactions

For customers opting to do cash payments, trays are provided for contact-less transactions.

Store crew sanitize the door and door handles every 30 minutes even as they pursue intensified cleaning and sanitation of fixtures and facilities. Similarly, heightened safety protocols for food preparation and handling—on top of existing procedures that are already thorough—are also being implemented. These include the crew wearing face mask, face shield, and gloves; handwashing and sanitation every hour and when necessary; and the appointment of a Hygiene Ambassador – a crew member wearing an identifying button pin and personal protective equipment and who go around reminding crew and diners of the safety measures. The Hygiene Ambassador himself cleans and disinfects the tables after every use.

To further ensure customer safety, wrapped rice is served for unli-rice orders. Meanwhile, selected Mang Inasal stores have placed barriers on the table for face-to-face dining.

Even the serving of unli-rice has been modified for safety purposes. Those who place unli-rice orders will be automatically served two cups of rice. Should they ask for more rice, the crew in charge will provide extra wrapped rice. Meanwhile pre-portioned condiments are served together with the ordered meal.

All these show that Mang Inasal not only serves good food enjoyed by many, but it also has the safety and well-being of its stakeholders as a priority.

A designated Mang Inasal Hygiene Ambassador reminds the store team to wash their hands every hour and sanitize every 30 minutes. He also conducts the cleaning and disinfection of the dining tables after every use

“We know how much everyone has missed dining at Mang Inasal,” says Business Unit Head Jojo P. Subido. “As we work towards the gradual return of in-store dining, we make sure to put our stakeholders at ease by placing their welfare as our top priority. In instituting all these precautions, we kept in mind our customers’ needs and concerns so that they can enjoy the Mang Inasal experience once again—safely and comfortably. We look forward to welcoming you back to our stores.”

As of this writing, over 80 percent of Mang Inasal stores around the country are open for dine-in.

All open public surfaces within the Mang Inasal store are cleaned and disinfected by a designated Hygiene Ambassador. 

Meanwhile, customers from Metro Manila can continue enjoying Mang Inasal meals by placing their orders through #7-3333 or via GrabFood, Foodpanda, and LalaFood. They can also place their orders through Jose, the Mang Inasal Chatbot in Facebook Messenger.

They can likewise go to selected Mang Inasal stores for takeout or for Park, Pickup and Go arrangements.
