I had been using various water heaters since my college days but none of them really impress me.I specially mention those heaters with rounded metal body, although they're pretty cheaper but in most cases it won't last long and unsafe to use when unattended.

We are lucky nowadays to have what we called electric kettle, a much improved water heater that allows us to boil much faster and automatically cuts off electric circuit.

Presenting to you is the Asahi EK- 181.

The Asahi Ek-181 is sleek water kettle or heater capable of boiling water up to 1.8 liter. It has excellent removable water filters that you won't find in an ordinary Kyowa or MasterCraft kettle.

The EK-181 features stainless steel heater tube, cool touch grip- easy grip, On-Off switch with light indicator and water level indicator in the front of the device.

Armed with safety features, it has double insulated AC Cord with ground protection wire, overheat and boil dry thermal cut off protection, and the top cover has pop-up lock to ensuring the kettle water won't accidentally spills.

This electric kettle is available in white-blue, white-skyblue and white-red color. Also available in smaller sizes.

The EK-181 is price tag at P500 plus on most retailers nationwide.

- Easy to clean, beautiful-looking, big capacity, safe to use, and minimal boiling noise.

-Asahi Water Kettle is only covered by 1 week warranty (while fans are 5 years from d.o.p and 1 years for gas stoves)
-Won't work on non-230V rated power outlets

Company Background

Several years ago, Asahi or Asahi Electrical Manufacturing Corporation was just known for their affordable electric fans in the Philippines, due to their commitment to produce home appliance that meet established standards for quality and safety most of their product had bagged multiple Philippines choice awards as superbrands.

Today, Asahi manufactured wide range of home appliances from super kalan, gas stoves, fans, rice cooker, electric kettle, electric iron, oven, and a lot more.

Do you love Asahi products? How's your experience with it? Inform us by your comment below.

Do you experience lately in blogger post where thumbnail pics are gone missing? If yes then, you are not alone. Many users have been facing the same issues already since last week. We advice that you don't change anything in your template or make a bit drastic action becuase there's seem a new bug  in blogger platform.

The root of the problem according to Livewithg is blogger automatically inserts "s" on the image source http. 

So, to solve the issue follow these steps (this perfectly works on my other blog!):

  • Open up the post for editing that is missing a thumbnail.
  • Near the top left of the post editor, you’ll notice there’s a switcher. Click “HTML”.  You will now see the raw HTML version of your post.
  • Now find the image that you have uploaded (it should usually be the first one). And replace https:// with http:// (remove the s). Make sure to do it after the src=" tag. The same URL may also show up after href=" tag, you don’t have to worry about that. Just make sure src="https:// is replaced with src="http://.
  • Cick Update to publish the changes.
  • Now go visit your homepage. Do a hard refresh (Control + F5 or Shift +F5) to clear any caches. You should be seeing the thumbnail now.

If you had noticed blogger post preview also gets broken when uses https url encryption.

According to Mashable post, the main purpose of HTTPS encryption to is provide benefits like confidentiality, integrity and identity. Your information remains confidential from prying eyes because only your browser and the server can decrypt the traffic. Integrity protects the data from being modified without your knowledge.

AVAST Software had released in advance the Avast Antivirus 2015 which can be now downloaded for free. Boasting the package of best antivirus and anti-malware protection, the ability to remove annoying browser toolbars, one-click scanning for malware, updates, network security, and PC performance, and the world’s first home network scanner.

Home network scanner
Avast identified a growing area of insecurity close to home (actually right in your home!): Your home Wi-Fi network. Easily hacked passwords make home routers an effortless entry point for hackers or even free-loading neighbors. Avast 2015 security solutions include the first-ever home network scanner, which will help you prevent hacker attacks on your router and network.

One-click Smart Scan

To help simplify device security for your family, Avast 2015 now allows you to use a one-click smart scan to scan for hacker threats, software that needs to be updated, your home network security, and your PC‘s operating status.

Unique cleanup and updater features

One of the weakest links in people’s security is out-of-date software. Hackers take advantage of old software, but it’s actually one of the simplest areas to defend. With the improved Avast Software Updater, you are notified when there is a patch or update to the software you’re running – regardless of who it’s from.

PUPs (potentially unwanted programs) like toolbars and search resets are not only annoying; they’re dangerous. They collect information distributed to advertisers or anyone willing to pay for it. The improved Avast Browser Cleanup removes annoying toolbars and search settings, allowing you to choose the settings you want and accelerate PC performance.

Additional protection includes an added buffer with hardware-assisted virtualization, creating a virtual “test area” to automatically analyze suspicious items. PUP (potentially unwanted programs) detection identifies programs users may not have intended to install, giving them the option to remove them to accelerate PC performance.

The Avast 2015 security solution is available in four variations for home use—Avast Free Antivirus, Avast Pro Antivirus, Avast Internet Security, and Avast Premier—and in 45 languages. Avast also provides world-class protection for businesses and mobile devices. Visit to learn more and download.
