Chinese New Year is one of the most

People customarily participate in parades and dragon dances that are organized and held in Binondo (China Town). The most known tradition include firecrackers that are believed to drive off bad luck and

the Tikoy, a Chinese sticky sweet treat that symbolizes the attraction of good luck.

In line with all the merriments, we would like to remind everyone to follow these precautions:

Handle fireworks with caution

only buy legal fireworks from reputable stores.  Always read the instructions and make sure you take all the necessary precautions before lighting them

Smoke Detector

Make sure you installed the Meiji Smoke Detector with Alarm (MSD-01/ MSD-02)
in your kitchens and never leave your cooking unattended. This stand-alone smoke detector alarms you when it detects smoke; to avoid the tragedies of fire.

Keep Candles Out of Reach

Keep candles out of reach of children and combustible materials. After all the gatherings, check for smouldering cigarette butts or firecrackers and extinguish it properly

Avoid Overloading

Avoid overloading electrical sockets and extension sets. An extension set has a limit to how many amperes it can take so, to help reduce the risk of fire, be careful not to overload them. The Meiji 13 and 20 Series Extension Cord (MES-1303 to 1306, WRP 2104/ 2027) has a
power rating from 1,200 to 2,500 Watts that comes in 3 to 5-meter ranges. It consists of 3 to 6 international outlets for the 13 series and 3 parallel outlets for the 20 series. CNY dishes

Christmas is just around the corner and I’m sure that by now, you have already adorned your houses with Christmas trees, garlands and colourful parols. It is the most festive time of year and having a safe and secure home will keep the holidays brighter for you and your family. Before you get busy in buying your Christmas gifts and other preparations, please take a while to review our holiday electrical safety reminders to avoid any potential danger.

#1: Determine the number of available outlets

When decorating, determine first the number of available outlets and its location. Be sure that your installed electrical outlet can accommodate the total load of your Christmas decors. The most common problem when hanging Christmas lights is the unavailability of an electric outlet. If your outlet is far from your Christmas lights/ decors, use the Meiji 20 Series Extension sets (WRP 2104/2027) that are made up of polycarbonate ABS plastic material and ranges from 3-5 Metered wires. It also has 3 outlets rated from 1200 to 2500 Watts and your choice of white, black and even green colours.

This series consists of 3 to 6 international outlets with individual switches, shutters for child protection and fuses for each outlet. It also contains a circuit breaker to better protect your higher rated appliances. It is made up of fire-retardant plastic in grey colour, rated at a total of 2,500 Watts.

The MFL-DL with LED dancing lights, MFL-RM with LED blinking colourful balls, The MFL-G that has steady gold fiber optic with colourful LEDs, and the MFL-SS which has LED stars with 8 different motions.

Energy efficiency is another benefit of using this tree since LEDs only consumes 1/3 energy. This will add up to big savings on your electricity bill by the time the holiday season is over.

# 4: Do not overload electrical outlets.

Overloaded electrical outlets and faulty wires are a common cause of holiday fires. Avoid overloading outlets and only plug one high-wattage appliance into each outlet. Read the power consumption of your appliance and make sure it is within the capacity of your outlet.

# 6: Always unplug electrical decorations before replacing bulbs or fuses of your Christmas lights to avoid electric shock.

# 7: Make sure that you have a stand-alone Meiji Smoke Detector with Alarm (MSD-01/ MSD-02)

Smoke detectors are essential especially for homes whose owners could not personally monitor the kitchen everyday. These smoke alarms prevent fires from getting too hard to handle causing loss or damage.

Smoke is the primary warning before a fire. And if this can be prevented from the start, then what a relief!
