Project Gift: Christmas

In light of this coming Christmas, we have pledge to do something different for the next 12 months, culminating at Christmas 2011. The season and essence of Christmas have always been about giving. Shopping for perfect presents, inviting guests for Christmas dinners, sharing Christmas tunes in carols and the list goes on. But the core […]

Taking a closer look at our trash!

Believe it or not, since the introduction of recycling bins in our kitchen, we have just been constantly surprise (and appalled) at the mounting recyclable waste accumulated over time. Almost every product we buy off-the-shelf has an element that can be recycled.  Everything from plastic wrappers, plastic bottles or cups, old newspapers, cereal boxes, juice […]

The best (and busiest) time of the year

The best time of the year also means the busiest time of the year! While others are clearing their annual leave, or strolling in the malls doing their Christmas shopping or simply lazing in front of the idiot box, my schedule has been packed ever since Dec rolled along. It’s relentless but oddly there’s no […]

Our Christmas tree makes its debut

One of many things I love about Christmas is setting up the tree. There’s something warm, magical and fuzzy about it. With Christmas jazzies playing at the background, the entire room just evolves into a big sparkle! Perhaps it was the memories I grew up when setting up the Christmas tree. Either mom or dad […]

Our lil garden has grown!

Calamintha… hyrangea… calla lily…spiky cactus, our green thumbs has gotten the better of us. Now the porch has an array of natural beauties to greet us.  We had initially thought of transferring our sprouting brinjal plant into another pot, hence we needed more soil. Which brought us to the nursery and instead of coming back […]
