Modular Homes can be stylish, energy-efficient and income-earning too

What comes to mind when you hear the word “pre-fab home”?
Bet you thought of soldiers’ barracks, temporary shelters or low-cost houses that the government put up for mass housing in the 60s and 70s.
But prefabricated homes have come a long way. Whether its purpose is to be a family home, a vacation getaway, or a home that one can use for business, one can now find a trendy modular home to cherish and be proud of because it looks good and performs superbly as a dwelling unit too.

Pre-fab homes today are practically custom-built, beautifully designed, sturdy, long-lasting, energy-efficient, and ready to meet the challenges posed by the elements. Although built in quick time, no compromise has been made on its quality or integrity. New homes that use this fast and flexible building technique have also been hailed for using sustainable, recycled, low-energy materials and fixtures that result in functional, space-efficient, eco-friendly design.

Last October 17, 2014  for the forth time  I received a text again a sort of  scam  (see photo below) . So I've decided to tweet it to both  cell network because apparently the person who's trying to scam me  is using both SUN and GLOBE.  
After an hour or two  a representative from GLOBE network twitted me asking for my mobile number without any or extra information on how to solve it. I'm kinda disappointed with her reply big time. Then I thought of, if I'll give you my number can you solve it? or if will give you my number how many scammers and advertisers will be benefited from it?  ugh never mind.

A bite of good story: A street kid with jolly heart

"Kanina while having lunch sa Jollibee, may bata na pumasok at dumeretso sa counter. Clearly, isa itong pulubi. Pero ang nakakatuwa kasi eh TALAGANG ikakain nya yung nalimos nyang pera. Marami ang natingin sa kanya at obvious na natutuwa. Kahit ako at ang kasama ko ay tuwang tuwa na nakita namin. Omurder sya ng spaghetti with drinks at nagtable malapit saamin kaya nagawan ko syang kuhanan. Maya maya ay lumapit ang isang crew na may dala pang jolly hotdog.(Hindi lang kami sure kung kanino galing ang jolly hotdog) At pilit itinatanggi ng bata ang jolly hotdog, na hindi raw kanya iyon at hindi raw sya ang umorder noon... Hehehe
Kung makakasigurado lng talaga tayo na ang lahat ng batang nanlilimos ay ipangkakain nila ang nalilimos nilang pera, hinding hindi na ako mag aatubileng magbigay."

Buensuenos (Good Dreams) is a handicraft store located in Zamboanga City, selling eco-friendly raw materials for décor purposes and specializes in beautiful handcrafted products to cater every home and office.
In line with the country’s advocacy in cleaning our environment, Buensuenos came up with UP-CYCLING, the process (used materials) so as to produce something that is better than the original form, by making use of plastic spoons, empty plastic water bottles that are just wasted, mini pinecones, coco twigs, coco flowers, and umbrella plant stalks. All these materials are locally. 
This is the two-sided endeavor. Aside from cleaning the environment, we are also helping some less fortunate women by giving them skill training and eventually got employed as handicraft worker.

Zamboanga's native beads and wild seeds are all in one up-cycled product

Here in the Philippines some of our natural resources are becoming extinct nowadays, such as plants that produces beads  and other decorative products.

Job's Tears and Abricus Precatorius (Eye Jequerity) are slowly fading in the wild. So as  a call for reviving these indengenous plants Buensueños came up with an idea that can reproduce or replant Job's tears and Eye Jequerity  by encouraging people to plant more because these plants  will help them generate income in the near future.

Buensueños is producing up-cycled products and natural/raw materials that is mainly sustainable in Zamboanga City. Buensueños aims to promote the thrust of the government in recycling and upcycling materials and at the same time giving continuous livelihood projects in the mountain and in the urban areas in the City.

Some of Buensueños products are:
Tealight (made of spoon with Wild pine cones, Salawak seeds, Job’s Tears and Eye Jequerity), Lampshade made of bamboo, Basket made Coconut stick, Bread basket made stalks of Umbrella plant , hand aplique products and a lot more.
