Finally, we bought a house! I always have a dream that one day I will have my dream house. For about ten years, I have been dreaming but never expected that my dream would finally come true. On certain days, I love to imagine how our house would look like. Will Burlap themed home decor with burlap draperies be good for my new house? My daughter wants her room to be painted pink and purple; my middle son wants a teepee in his room while my eldest has his own secret idea on how his room would look like. For me, I'm still searching for the decor that would bring sparkles in my eyes. Anyway, no matter what decor we use, it is of the utmost importance that our home should be cozy and filled with love. I'm looking forward towards it.

Life without a maid is manageable but it's not easy. For me, I know very clearly that I have to take care of my health or I'll never be able to cope with my children, the house chores and my work. One day, I saw these in my in laws' house. They are delicious! I tried to find these in KL but couldn't find any. If any of you know where to get these, I'll appreciate if you could drop me a note.

Upholstered furniture varies, from commercial upholstery to marine upholstery. Marine upholstery is different as it should take into account dampness, hard usage and sunlight. Besides these, each screw and staple must be of stainless steel. Any wood used must be of marine quality. Nylon zippers and Dacron thread are used for sewing while marine upholstery foam with a thin film of plastic is used to keep the water out. Hence, marine upholstery must use materials that are of quality.

When it comes to music lessons, I often ask myself if I should force my children to take up piano lessons if they have interest in other musical instruments. My eldest likes the piano, my daughter loves the violin while my middle child favors the drum and the ukuleles. For me, I think interest is more important and although many people tell me that we should not encourage children to give up easily, I still feel that passion rules. What do you think?
My grandmother is, once again, staying with my parents. Now that she is old and starts forgetting, her children decided that it is not safe for her to stay with the maid alone in her house anymore. Hence, they are taking care of her on a rotation basis. It is rather difficult to take care of grandma as she wakes up every hour to go to the toilet at night. She has diabetes and high blood pressure. So, it is a routine for her children to take her blood pressure with welch allyn sphygmomanometer and blood glucose level with the glucometer daily. No matter how difficult it is, children should take the responsibility of taking care of their parents when they are old.
This is my trial version of a confinement recipe, taught by my friend, CN. Her version was without the vegetables. The chicken was marinated with wine, ginger sauce, salt, sugar, sesame oil and corn flour. Then, steam it. I thought CN's ginger wine chicken looks more delicious. One day, I shall try this dish again.
I love music! I would move to the beat and rhythm of music. Although I didn't have the opportunity to take up piano lessons, I love listening to all sorts of music. I especially love the sound of saxophone and admire those who can play the saxophone well. To those who love the saxophone and wish to get one, try searching for baritone sax at wwbw.
