  3. Thanks for the tips sis. I haven't seen any coil here in Dubai. The ones sold here are the electric ones and sprays. There's actually not much mosquitoes around but we still have "Off" lotion at home. Better be safe than sorry.

  4. I have watched this news at 24 Oras. Reminds me of my younger years when we were so dependent on that Lion-Tiger Katol. Lol. Now, I don't think I still can use it if I go home to Philippines. Its smoke is not too friendly to my breathing conditions anymore.

  7. Katol, patayin ang katol. The familiar phrase my wife is uttering whenever she smells a lighted mosquito coil. I have read that inhaling mosquito coil fumes is much hazardous to one's health that smoking.

  11. I don't like using mosquito coils sis as I don't like the smell of it. Moreover, the smell of it sticks to our clothes. Good thing there are already repellants to use for me and my kids. :)
