Why You Have To Grab Aquaflask And Bring It With You Always?


What is Aquaflask? - for me it's the cousin of Clean Canteen. Ha ha ha!

Just look at the pic and you'll know instantly, it's a thermal flask - for water or juices; with shining shimmering splendid variety of colors.

Where to get or buy? - it's currently at a discounted price since last year, you have to hurry to the malls ; normally Aquaflask sales teams are located in the center isles, or among booths of the mall or message me in my email posted on this blog, if you want to order directly from me. 

What are the benefits of having an aquaflask? - it makes you love water, more; over and over again. just 2 having my thermal flask and i am already achieving my water intake allocation before the day ends. 

I'm a stone-former; a urologist told me to drink 2-3 Liters of water a day; a great feeling - Aquaflask is helping me attain this goal.

Get the 32 Oz (almost equivalent to 1 liter capacity) - it's pretty handy, not big, not small.

So, what is the significance of drinking H20? ... read these 13 major benefits collated by Medical News Today.

1. It lubricates the joints

2. It forms saliva and mucus

3. It delivers oxygen throughout the body

4. It boosts skin health and beauty

5. It cushions the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues

6. It regulates body temperature

7. It flushes body wastes

8. It helps maintain blood pressure

9. It makes minerals and nutrients accessible

10. It prevents kidney damage

11. Boosts performance during exercise

12. Promotes weight loss (especially warm water)

13. It helps reduce hang-over.

Last tip? - buy the boots, it'll help repel any dents or scratches from sudden drop or bumps. The boots are the base covers made of silicon.

Last Last Tip? - I used my 64 Oz as an harinola. Yeah!, my 2nd floor has no CR and am lazy going down during the night, so i'm shooting it in on the marine blue thermal flask - easy to clean! LOL!

Yourself Alone, Is The Source Of Motivation

"if you continue to wait until you're ready, you'll be waiting for the rest of your life" 

~ steven barlett

I came across with an IG post somewhere along these lines, it's worth sharing.

 The cost of ambition:

- late nights, early mornings

- lots of associates, very few friends

- you will be single unless you are lucky enough to find someone who understands your lifestyle

- people will want you to do good, but never better than them

For these reasons, you will do many things along.

It's hard i know, it's difficult-yes, that's given. 

It's all in the mind: those thoughts, when chances are seemingly so small to succeed, and yet, if you crush those thoughts pulling down your ambitions, or your dreams; and replace it with the "push", you're on the right track because no one is going to do that, but you!

iMessage, iPhone, RCS, and Racism

(this is an opinion!) 

iMessage: iconic blue text

Just thinking out loud:

  • Apple's iMessage is so powerful, Google is making it a big deal for Apple (the creator of the iMessage exclusively available in the walled-garden of iOS devices) to adjust its messaging platform; by asking (or begging) for iMessage to be universally available & compatible with Android devices or adapt the RCS platform.
    • what is RCS platform? - Rich Communication Services is a communication protocol between mobile telephone carriers and between phone and carrier, aiming at replacing SMS messages with a text-message system that is richer, provides phonebook polling, and can transmit in-call multimedia. It is part of the broader IP Multimedia Subsystem.

  • Green Text vs Blue Text - The Difference! (using the default text message of your smartphone)
    • iMessage's glaring beacon, instantly kicks-in for iOS users when they see the blue text conversation, the blue bubble!; not to mention the aesthetic - animated dots - signifying the other person is responding back, prolly typing or editing the message he's trying to send. 
    • non-iOS devices like Android or Huawei defaults to green text through its main text message app. The green text appears when the owner sends it to an Android device, and when the Android owner responds, the text is non-blue.
    • What's the importance if your text mate doesn't have the blue text?
      • it means you can't do the "Pew Pew" mode. (laugh if you can relate to this)
      • you can't flirt with Animojis, Emojies, Awesome stickos!
      • read receipts, delivery receipts are unknown
      • threaded conversations can't be done.
      • dropping a file, an image, a map, a voice not... are not possible
      • encryption is not observed if you're texting with a green text while the blue ones are encrypted (it happens only within your own devices, not shared over some Apple server: at least according to Apple)
      • and the list of benefits not received goes on - if you are texting with a green one.

  • Do iPhones and (iOS devices) trying to monopolize and trying to project superiority? Is it some kind of  passive-agressive type of racism?
    • read on from Ars and decide for your own!!!
