Ms. Dust Buster

Ching says, KAYA!

As a child in the Philippines, when I got home from school, the first thing I did was look for the walis and sweep the whole house. I was playful and made every moment with the walis joyful. My parents tried to hide their disappointment and unhappiness over my affair with the walis. They even nicknamed me “Miss Walis”.

As I grew, my interest became more diverse and complex, particularly with college and then going abroad. After years of traveling throughout the Southern Hemisphere, I thought, I was prepared for everything, but I never thought I would find a replacement for my walis. But, there is! It’s the VACUUM CLEANER.

I embraced it the moment I first saw it! I found out that using the vacuum cleaner around the house has brought me joy rivaling my childhood emotions when sweeping with the WALIS.

When I was a little girl, I hated ironing, but I loved to sweep the whole house with our walis (broom).
Now, that I'm grown, I still dislike to iron, but I love to vacuum the house with our vacuum sweeper.
