How to make....

I was surfing the internet yesterday for some games/craft ideas to be presented in an upcoming Sunday School meeting. I was actually looking for tips on how to prepare a cardboard maze and thought of googling it. At the mean time, Michelle was seated next to me, so while I was typing the keywords to google.. Michelle was distracted and was looking on what I was typing.... I typed in the following words "how to make..." and to my surprise (google actually displayed some of the most searched phrased that match my search) "how to make love... XXXXXXX results" appeared on the screen to which Michelle says aloud ... "ha ha mummy it says how to make love".... immediately I typed something else and terminate the scene automatically... Gosh don't want to be caught in the situation where she asked me the details.... just imagine your eight-year old asking you "mummy what is making love?" LOL

Our new home - Before n After

As promised... below are some before n after shots of our new home.

We'll start with the garden... before, the area is about 12'x24'

Job done: Extended our backyard garden double the size, planted some carpet grass and re-arrange some of our collections... we are planning to add more species after CNY, so far we have organized a potbless here, we're going to use this area for more family gatherings and fellowship with friends and neighbours.

The dining area.. before

Job done: Not much, repaint the wall with a coat of fresh bold apple green mixed with a lighter tone of green, balinese painting on the wall.

Next the kitchen...

Task done: We maintained the L-shape cabinets and kitchen tops and just changed the cabinet doors' surface, added a 3'x 4' island and a stand alone cabinet with a build-in oven.

Alright, the kids are sleepy and I got to stop here...stay tuned for more pics and updates.

What could possibly be worst?

I've been car pooling with hubby since Monday...coz his giant road bully is aging and need to be hospitalized for ?? days or weeks. So yesterday, after work he picked me up and off we went to run some errands..

1st incident:
Pick up a customized 2.5' x 6.0' mirror for our wardrobe..
After much effort by the store worker and hubby, the mirror refused to enter our car.. we have to wait for his giant bully to do the job.. mission 1 failed.

2nd incident:
Hubby went back home and started his "drilling" project, we bought some paintings from Bali last year and finally we got the chance to hang them up... Drilling done and when adjusting the painting whether to hang it vertically or horizontally, hubby broke one of our living room's light..there goes my beautiful now we have a broken light.

3rd incident:
While adjusting the hanging string at the back of the painting, he hammered his own thumb... so now we have a sore-thumb... what could be worst eh..

4th incident:
So now the lights are gone, hubby attempted to hide the defect by switching the position of the light cover and in the process, adjusted the bulb... okay he managed to sort of "hide" the defect. He switched on the lights and "plang", guess what... short-circuit, the bulbs of course went dead, so are the other associated lights/fan so now we have a broken light, a sore thumb and a short-circuit...

To stop all this from continuing... I suggested he bathed and took his dinner... I told him that I would have to take over the wheel when we go out later.. as I'm not too sure what is going to happen..

All this happens within 2 hours.. so you tell me what could be worst eh?
