    Daiso 101 – 15 Useful Things from Daiso and what I do with them.

Daiso 101 – 15 Useful Things from Daiso and what I do with them.

By |October 6th, 2015|

I confess, I am a Daiso-holic. And I know there are a lot of you out there who are the same, and maybe some of you choose to be closet ones, but still… I know a lot cannot resist the lure of stepping in and just browsing around, right? Com’on, there is no shame. We are all just super good at saving money and buying useful things at a fraction of their price sometimes. Other times, it’s for convenience sake!  😛

Spent a few hours at night prepping the pressies with the husband. Here’s a image of the final product!

teacher’s day presents.

By |September 6th, 2013|

and so, tomorrow is teacher’s day. if you have school going children like me, have you prepped the presents? or has it been a really tedious process, pondering about what presents to give them?

i do feel people these days are, in general, more critical then appreciative towards everyone around them. or it could have been the wide spread use of social media which has amplified the negative voices. I know I am fully guilty of dishing out complaints a lot more than praises or compliments on a daily basis. its so much easier to complain, and take things for granted.
