I just watched the finale of the X-Factor Australia and I was really amazed with the finalist most especially to the grand winner Dami Im. She’s such an inspiration. She’s unbelievably developed well her talent of singing in the show. As an Asian, I’m so proud of her and as music lover, I’m now a fan. Well done Dami Im! I think she’s the first Asian who won X-Factor if I’m not mistaken. I was wondering if she played modern player telecaster in one of her performances. Did she? I think I missed it. I just saw her played the piano. I’ll just dig some of her performances that I haven’t watch in YouTube.
I’ve been reading modern home magazine lately and I love the tips and information I found on this magazine. I will apply it surely to our new house.
Here are the top three home styling tips I just read:
1. Work out your decorating style. Once you know what your decorating style is, it makes it so much easier to choose furniture, art and decorative pieces that you will really love, and love for a long time to come.
2. Choosing the right lighting is very important in styling a room. Using lamp such as floor lamps and table lamps is lovable as they give off a beautiful soft light unlike harsh overhead lighting. They are also a great way to introduce a colour or style within your room.
3. Decide whether you want your piece of art to be the focal point in your interior or not. If you have too many focal points in a room it can cause a disjointed and overwhelming feeling. Art can either be the starting point in interior or it can add to the style you’re developing with multiple items working together.
Apricot is a yummy fruit. I start to like it recently when I tasted an organic one. My friend used to make delicious jam out of it. But tonight I found out apricot kernels here are useful too. It has been found to have one of the highest levels, in addition to containing B15 and enzymes. It’s interesting to know this health benefits and apricot seeds. But I don’t think I will like the bitter taste of a raw apricot kernel.
I want to do things that mostly men do at home. I want to build and create here and there at our home. What I mean is that I want to do shelving on my own. But it’s impossible to do it on my own. I don’t have sources, I’m not that strong. All I can do is simple gardening and cleaning and cooking. I want to do decking on our backyards. My husband is not gifted with handyman talents. He always leaves things behind. He’s just good in starting and not finishing it. Sometimes end up a disaster. Not a wise person at all. Just good in his IT career and computer stuff and some womanly stuff.
We finally moved to our own new house and it feels good to have a bigger space. It’s been 2 months actually since we moved in and obviously this is a late post. I can’t just update straight away. Anyway, kids are happy to have their own room. On the first and second night that we got the keys of our house, we all slept together in one room. It was like a camping because we just put our mattress on the floor and covered it with blankets. Kids really like it and even want to do it more often. That’s how sweet they are.
We’ve been busy looking for things and will fit our new house. Some big things need big savings like our pergolas and door screens. We decided to go for curtains rather than blinds to minimize the expenses. I like curtains because I can always change it according to season or whenever. There are things that I don’t like how the builders build some parts of our house but I have to stick with until I got big budget to change it according to what I want. Some things are not just not right but tolerable. We still feel grateful for this great blessing God has granted to us.
My youngest is getting interested in music at an early age. He is starting to try different things and I am quite surprise to hear him play some decent tunes on the keyboard. But I just realized that he is quite good at making beat sounds. I was thinking of getting him Yamaha electronic drums at Musicians Friend to get him going and making proper beats. He seems to be very keen at it. Of course, I know that he just follows most of his likes from his brothers. But the drums seems to be his own.
I am always happy to help out in parties. I mean, I go to a party and pitch in with the chores. I’ve never actually helped out organizing the party myself, but there is always a first for everything. So this party that a friend of ours was having wasn’t just any party. It was going to be big one. I needed to get print shop software from eoncode.com to get some of the invites done. Of course, that was the only I was in charge of. So it had to be best invites that people would get from any party.
Some couples are just lucky to have their dream come true fairy-tale wedding. They’re able to plan it perfectly. Engagement party! Then, plan the wedding day. Hens night for the bride. Stag party for the groom. Then the most memorable day of their life is the day that they tie the knot. How nice it is when they’d exchange their vows and wedding bands. Speaking of wedding bands, I’ve seen mens wedding band from jewelryvortex.com and they look so priceless, I mean so nice and precious. Maybe if one of you still looking for the best wedding bands, this place online might be the answer.
We just had our inspection this morning and they called it pre hand over house inspection. Every things is good and nearly really ready for us to move in. Excited? Well, I don’t understand because something inside of me is not really. Maybe I had enough of waiting and moving lol. For sure, I’ll be busy as in when the time comes. I’ll be surelly exhausted and will get sick again after. Gosh! I feel so negative today. So before any negative thoughts, so much of this post. Just posting snaps of our newly built house.
I’ve been active lately doing things that will conquer the laziness due to winter weather. I took the kids to their martial arts lesson twice a week and every Saturday swimming lessons. Always hurrying in dropping and picking up the kids at school. I also have active things to do for my self while kids are away. Because of that, I felt that carrying a shoulder and any other ladies bags is not suitable for my everyday routine. I should be carrying backpack. I’ve seen this Gregory Backpacks online and there’s orange colour gregory wasatch 12 daypack / bike pack there that I really like. But then again, I’m thinking to get a pink colour one or a flowery design backpack. Oh well, one of this day I’ll be getting one for sure.
