What similarities do you have with your siblings? Obsession to K-drama? Hoarding of books? Killing plants? That’s all of me.
But there is one hobby that I share with my sister: we both like buying appliances (and gadgets).
One day while having a chat with my sibling online (possibly when she prefers to have a nap), she mentioned about saving up to buy IVO water purifier from Lazada.
When did they stop buying alkaline water? Why didn’t I know about it? Have I been spending a lot of time on Netflix watching K-drama and anime? (Yes to the last sentence.)
Apparently my family wants to have less contact with the outside world in time of pandemic.
As I am writing this post, one more month and the world will reach a one year anniversary of experiencing lockdown. Time flies.
How long does the virus want to persist? Nobody knows.
My sister decided to buy IVO water purifier on Lazada instead of having the alkalinewater deliver at our house. Recently she also bought groceries online on Waltermart.
She is trying a lot of new things online these days which is nothing new to me since she used to be an online freelancer on Upwork (formerly Odesk) and a blogger.
I owed to her why I am blogging and earning passive income; she showed me the ropes of SEO and niche blogging.
I hope that the computer I sent to her will be put to good use.

What’s It Like Using IVO Water Purifier
My sister kindly sent me photos and feedback about IVO SB151 faucet-mounted water purifier (1500L).
The truth is I’ve been pestering her to do it because I need it “for the blog” like I always say which is true. I wished I could get more information though.
I digressed. Back to online shopping. Lazada is like Amazon in Canada.
This made me wonder why there’s no Amazon in Asia. Someday. Maybe.

The largest IKEA in the world will open in Mall of Asia in July 2021 so it’s probably not far fetched to have an Amazon.ph or Asia.
Here’s a bit of feedback from my sister in English (she sent a text it in Tagalog):
- Easy to install. The filter comes with many fittings for the faucet. The filter is easier to install on a gooseneck faucet. (Didn’t have any idea what she’s talking about.)
- Clear and odourless water. The filtered water doesn’t taste and smell like Chlorine as if it comes from a water refilling station. Sometimes the water from refilling station has after taste.
Did I do justice in translating her words? I hope so? Can I be a translator? No. Flat-out no. Keep writing.
I’m afraid (for real) that I have to bother my sister again when it’s about time to change the filter.

Baby Boomers Vs Millennials
I want to address this issue in this post because I find it amusing and that is the generation gap.
Our family has huge generation gap. Our parents are baby boomers. We, the offspring, are millennials, the generation whose day to day life involve technology. My life is on my phone (notes, emails, books, maps etc.).
My parents are reluctant in using the filter.
They are the same parents that I know who doesn’t like to eat fast food like Jollibee, McDonald etc. But recently they like Chowking and Tokyo Tokyo. I’ll have tempura please for my cheat day.
So as a sister who was encouraged by my techie younger sister, I obliged.
I asked my parents to use the water purifier then they can heat up the water through the electric kettle that I bought when I had a vacation in the Philippines.
It’s the same thing as drinking water from refilling water station.
Though I am not sure if it’s cheaper. In the long run, I think we can save more with IVO water purifier and filter that do not disappoint.
As far as I can remember, our family has been buying clean water from water refilling station so I was thrilled for a change, using convenient water filter.
I do look forward though, in a future recycling program in the Philippines.
For now my family (or more like my sister) is fond of using IVO water purifier. A few months for now, we’ll see if it is worth using continuously budget and health wise.
What water filter are you using? Do you like Alkaline or distilled water?
