Weekends and it’s Friday! Comments Off on Weekends and it’s Friday!

Thank God it’s Friday. Yes, the weekends is here again and i’m really looking forward to it.This is a big week in the house as my boy is into week 7 of the term. This is also a week of assignments, assessements, presentations and much more to do.

With so many going on, I have yet to find time to clean the house. I aim to buy some storage bins so that I can put some stuff away. But there’s just so little space in the house we are living in right now. Perhaps, we should look into one of those storage cabin where we can chuck things into the ‘room’. The problem is you can end up stocking things you don’t even need at all!

Shopping for Father’s Day Comments Off on Shopping for Father’s Day

In Australia, Father’s day is celebrated on the first Sunday of September. Thus, I’m just cracking my head on what I should get for my hubby on that special day.

I was just shopping around in the internet and stumbled upon some carrera tag heuer watches which I thought would be suitable for him. They are pretty cool, classy and sporty, which reflects hubby’s personality. My hubby is that sort who doesn’t like formal looks so the Tag will be a great gift idea for him! Now, I just have to check one that fits my budget and hopefully it’s not going to burn a big in my pocket!

When people travel, they like to bring things home for remembrance.

For me, I like to bring home a pin, a dollar or coin of the place I traveled to. It just helps me remember the place a bit better. It would be nice to bring back the dollar coin when I travel to STates again next time. I was there years ago but it’s been a long time since I last visited the US. I believe not much may have changed but one thing for sure, my shopping dollar will go a longer way!

Music is Integral in our Lives Comments Off on Music is Integral in our Lives

There hasn’t been much traveling plans this year and I think it’s just one of those moments where I just want to sit back and relax.

I’ve been running quite a bit and as I get into it, I’m discovering running with music. It’s nice to run and walk with music in the ears, no wonder so many people I know have ear phones with them when they are running. I was looking at the MF apogee one and it looks like a cool pocket sized device for people on the go. It’s great for traveling, great for sports…etc. Music is integral in our lives and there is so many benefits to it. Are you tapping it?
