HP 60 Ink Cartridge Refill

Ink Refill Stations are everywhere nowadays and they are somewhat cheaper when compared to buying genuine inks. But HP and Epson challenged these refill stations with cheaper ink cartridges. Brand New  Black HP 60 ink cartridges (value/economy pack) costs around 400-500 pesos only and can compete with stations that charge around 300-400 pesos per refill.

Jumpstarting A Stalled Car with Battery Cables

Honoring our dead relatives. Every November 1, it has been a family tradition to visit and pray for our departed loved ones. We have a small and cozy mausoleum that houses the graves of our deceased relatives. Our family has always been in charge of cleaning it up a couple of days before Nov.1. These past years, I've been very busy with work and stuff that we usually just hire someone to clean it. But fortunately, I was able to free up some time this year to do it myself.
