Since our apartment is fully carpeted, it takes more effort to do the vacuuming. The Philips brand that we are currently using was bought in Singapore and is not really suited for carpet cleaning. No matter how many times I drag the poor thing to and fro, I still see some dirt on the floor. My friend who just bought this Dyson brand swears that well, it sucks! She has asthma and has seen better mornings (without the usual nose clogs) since they started using this. When I got the chance to see this in their apartment, I noticed that it’s bagless! It is notRead More →

You are looking at the future of gardening right there! This UFO looking AeroGarden appliance here is perfect for growing little veggies in your very own kitchen. It comes in different styles and shades, too! The price is kind of steep though, 279AUD a piece! But even if the price is right, I’d still choose to dirty my hands with real soil and get the satisfaction out of doing real gardening. I wonder if Better Homes and Gardens will feature this in their show?  Read More →

We have been dreaming of owning a huge plasma TV since we were still in Singapore. One thing that always holds us back from buying one is that we don’t have our own place yet. It will be hard to move a highly sensitive TV from one place to another. Hopefully, in a few years’ time, when we have our own home, we’d be able to buy the HD Plasma TV of our dreams. I’m sure by then, Amelie would want to have an accompanying Wii to play with. Hee. This Panasonic Viera HD TV is what I am dreaming of having in our futureRead More →

I grabbed this Tickle test from Abie of myplanetpurple.com. I think we also have the same results. Tee hee. Who’s Your Hollywood Mom Match? My Result: Reese Witherspoon Being a parent has never looked so classy! Understated and always tasteful, someone as timelessly chic as you isn’t easy to come by. So it makes sense that your Hollywood mom match would be the super-sweet and ever-elegant Reese Witherspoon. Sure, you still deal with spit up and changing diapers: The difference is that you manage to look good even when handling the basics of momhood. And beyond your poise and appearances you still shine with theRead More →
