Le Pinay in Dubai… :)

Welcome to my world! My happiness.. my favorite things… my travels… my journey… My life. :) I’m a rookie housewife in Dubai- trying to be a domestic goddess! “JOIE DE VIVRE” – (FRENCH for joie, “joy”; de, “of”; vivre, “living”; “THE JOY OF LIVING”) is a term sometimes imported into English to express a cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit. Joie de vivre, as one scholar has written, can be a: JOY OF CONVERSATION, JOY OF EATING, JOY OF ANYTHING ONE MIGHT DO…

Allergy attack… Looking for a Good Air Purifier :P October 19, 2008

Lately I’ve been having allergies and breathing difficulties… I haven’t eaten anything unusual, and I haven’t been going out at all… so there’s only one culprit… dust! And when I surfed online… I was so surprised to find out that “indoor pollution” is 5x worse than outdoor pollution… that includes microscopic dust, fumes from detergents, from cooking, from food, dust mites, and the list goes on and on…

I usually spend the whole day in our flat (with aircon on coz I didn’t want the dust from outside to get in), so I guess I’d been breathing all these indoor pollution the whole time 😦 no wonder it triggered my allergy.  Anyway, my hubby and I have been looking for an air purifier at different stores, but we couldn’t find any. I don’t need the big ones coz our flat’s small.

By the way, does the air purifier with leaf design and swishing water work? (pls refer to pic)… There’s a lot of brands with this same design… If this kind works for you, hope you can let me know what brand you use…

If anyone can suggest a good air purifier (available here in Dubai), please do let me know. Thanks! 🙂
