How to Plan Your Own Holiday in 7 Steps

More and more people in the younger generation are now planning their own free-and-easy getaways, whether it is because they want to save money, want more privacy or just because they are control-freaks. Being a control freak myself, I do prefer planning my own trips more than joining a tour group. For me, it started off by planning short road trips into Malaysia’s Malacca almost 10 years ago, and then longer and longer trips. The more I find out about a place, the more I realised the process is as fun as the destination! The last road trip/tour I’d...

Second-hand Furniture Shopping for New BTO

We have been really busy with our new HDB BTO (Build to order). It is the first time we are getting a HDB from the government and to our shock and surprise, there is so much to be done! Getting a contractor or ID is only 30% of the battle. Next up, we have furniture. When it comes to furniture, we all think of IKEA.

The meal consists of a strawberry drink and I was immediately “wowed” by the drink and plating. I decided to take...

What in the Galaxy are Porgs? (Amigurumi pattern)

So we got a glimpse of Porgs in the latest Star Wars featurette. Although admittedly I’m not a massive Star Wars fan but I am still somewhat of a nerd and like sci-fi/fantasy stuffs. I have watched 90% of all the Star Wars movies including the most recent, the Last Jedi, featuring the first female Jedi lead character, an elderly Luke Skywalker and a new young Darth Vader. I feel kinda old know that the familiar Star Wars that I grew up watching is giving way to a new generation. However, I’m looking forward to the next movie and...
