There is no need for a fireplace in the Philippines even if it is a gel fireplace. In a tropical country, rainy days will not require you to have one even during the months of ‘ber’.
You may wonder what a gel fireplace is. It is a portable fireplace which also means it is movable because of its small size. It uses alcohol gel burning that is why it is clean. No smoke puts out when using it.
But who knows if there are houses here in my country that uses them? I hear that in the mountains the temperature gets really cold. I remember having to wish for a fireplace at the inn where I reside in the region where I compete for a national writing contest. It was freezing cold there before. I hear it is not as cold now.
