We Love Multi-Function Products, Guide for Travellers

We Love Multi-Function Products, Guide for Travellers

I love to travel and I hate carrying a lot of things! That’s why I am always on the lookout for items which have multi-function. Today, I was doing a bit of browsing and saw this post with all the Multi-Function Items You Should Never Travel Without. The post is more than 7 years old, but is still very useful. So, which ones do you need to pack?


I don’t have to explain further how SMART these smartphones are, right? Of course, you can send messages and make calls. You can use it as your clock, your notepad, your movie player and even your reliable map. Just make sure it’s fully charged. Which reminds me of the next thing you have to bring with you whenever you are travelling.

Speaking of smartphone, download an app that lets you do so many things like PeN. 

Universal Charger 

A friend of mine forgot her laptop charger when we travelled to Hong Kong a couple of years ago. Good thing I had my universal laptop charger. Otherwise, she would be missing hundreds of emails.

Credit Card Survival Tool

Such tool has a knife edge, screwdriver, ruler, can opener, 4 position wrench, and saw blade. Now, who’s ready for camping?


Because there are areas where you can’t access clean water to wash your hands! The next best thing is to clean it with wipes.

Spare travel wallet

It’s a wallet (only bigger than the conventional ones) where you can put copies of your travel documents, spare cash, and other cards. Make sure to keep it in a very secure place – like the back of your backpack, or a secret compartment of your luggage.

Rubber bands

You can tie your hair, organize your things, or secure your eyeglasses with your trusty rubber bands.

Zip-lock bags

Keep your leftovers or maybe soiled clothes in Zip-lock bags. At least it won’t stink!

Duct Tape

Because this can solve EVERY DAMN THING!

REAL TALK: Dengvaxia and Why You Don’t Need It YET

REAL TALK: Dengvaxia and Why You Don’t Need It YET

“There are 4 types of Dengue strains and all of those were transmitted to the Dengvaxia vaccine recipients “, says a pediatric doctor from St. Lukes Hospital Bonifacio Global City in the Philippines.

The pathophysiology of the vaccine clearly implies that ‘Dengvaxia’ isn’t fit for public consumption.

The statistics of Dengue cases in the Philippines may have compelled WHO, Sanofi Pasteur and the Philppine government through its Department of Health to conduct mass testing of the vaccine mostly to public school students.

What was supposed to cure Dengue outbreaks in targeted communities have simply failed to deliver and did exactly unforthcoming- Dengvaxia gave 4 strains of Dengue viruses to the vaccine receptors as if they already had the virus for 4 times already.

As a result, the vaccine will aggravate the respondent’s condition once they get infected by the Dengue-causing mosquito.

What can ‘Dengvaxia’ recipients do? “NOTHING. Unfortunately, they need to be careful not to have the Dengue virus in their system since they cannot afford to have the consequences from the vaccine”, added the source from St. Luke’s BGC.

It was believed that Sanofi Pasteur conducted a clinical trial in the Philippines through the Department of Health with then DOH Secretary Janet Garin‘s supervision.

Clinical trials have different phases and Dengvaxia was said to be on Phase 3. It

was administered to unintentional victims who basically had zero-knowledge of what could arise after testing the vaccine on them.

The Philippine government advises the public not to panic despite the commotion that is already circling the issue.

To understand the phases of clinical testing, watch this:
