  • Summer DIY projects

    By carmel | March 14, 2015

    Summer is here! Just the thought of it makes a lot of us excited with so many DIY projects in mind for the homebodies. Personally, I long to have some break as well and do a bit of arts and crafts, or finish some sewing projects. But, so many piled up tasks are yet to be done.

    For my handyman Dad, he is also busy with tinkering around the house. For instance, our kitchen door lock needs some replacement. Read the rest of this entry »

    Golden family event

    By carmel | March 14, 2015

    Last year was a hectic one for our family. Our parents celebrated their 50th golden wedding anniversary last December and we decided to have it with family and friends. There was a renewal of marriage vows in a small chapel in a subdivision just within our locality, and dinner in a nearby resort.

    All the preparations were mostly handled by yours truly, as my siblings were all abroad. They helped a lot in the planning and preparation, but I did most of the hands-on tasks, from making the invitations and tokens, to booking the venue for the ceremony and the reception, and the many other details such as the flowers, decors, photographer, videographer, etc.

    Dreaming of a White Christmas

    By carmel | February 21, 2015

    Wow! What a delight to see my weather app showing 25 degrees Celsius temperature outside. The sun is up and shining but the weather is cool. I hereby declare today as my favorite weekday. LOL. My big sis in Finland may not be joining me in my merriment though as they are experiencing winter over there, snow-covered rooftops and streets, and fireplaces/heaters full blast inside.

    Christmas may be over in northern Europe but the cold weather is still around. Last December, my siblings from Europe visited us for the holidays and for a special grand family occasion. So that gave them a bit of time away from the cold.

    Our two house companions

    By carmel | February 21, 2015

    They are always excited upon hearing our arrival even at the gate. Yup their senses are so keen, even if we’re many meters away yet. I’m talking about our two house companions, our doggies. One of them is older now, and the other is younger, but they look like brothers, with their coat color and build. The older one has mellowed down, and we’ve noticed that he is not that active as before. One time, he was not feeling well, and Dad gave him antibiotics, which proved effective as he’s now doing fine.

    I know pet owners are also concerned about their house companions, especially if they’re not behaving normally, or if there are some unusual signs in their furry coat. One can do a bit of research online when seeing such abnormal behaviour or appearances on their pets, and learn more than just do a guessing game. Read the rest of this entry »

    100% all-natural is in

    By carmel | February 21, 2015

    Once you’ve tried using all-natural products, mostly likely it will be for good. This is what I’ve personally experienced with using paraben-free SLS-free organic soaps, shampoo, and other personal care products with no harmful chemicals. I have felt the difference on my skin and am using them since 2013 until now and I’m never looking back.

    Thus, it’s good to know that there are many companies catching up with using all-natural ingredients for their customers. Read the rest of this entry »
