I like gardens, but am not a fan of tending one. That’s why I love our home so much, because the only bits of garden we get are strips of nature which are easily manageable. I was so excited when I found out that we have rose plants in our garden, and even more so when a couple of them started to bloom.
Future additions to the garden: another herb bucket (for parsley, mint and something-else), lime, capsicum, chillis. And maybe some cyclamens and daisies.
I was completely blown away when I stumbled upon this video on YouTube. Talk about an incredible design and utilisation of space. With more highrise accomodation coming up in Asia, I reckon it wouldn’t be long before people begin to transform their tiny apartment into efficient living like this.
Although I have to say, as impressed as I am with such a design, I believe that it would only be suitable for singles, at most a couple. You would have to childproof the heck out of the apartment if you have young children too
When one’s asked the question “what’s your favourite scent?”, it’s natural to immediately think of a favourite perfume. Sure I do have a number of favourite fragrances (Burberry’s Brit Sheer, Estee Lauder Pure White Linen Light Breeze to name a few), but when it comes to a favourite scent, I’d have to say, nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread.
I live in an apartment near a few bakeries, and each morning I’m greeted with the most delicious smell of freshly baked loaves on the balcony. It’s absolutely divine. Catching a whiff of it works up an appetite for a hearty breakfast each morning, that’s for sure.
That’s the mornings. In the afternoons, there’ll be smells of fried chicken wafting in the air from nearby takeaways (gives you a rough idea on where I live, eh?). Not as good as the smell of baked bread, but it does give me KFC cravings from time to time.
What’s your favourite scent? Smell of rain splashing on the grass? Indian curries?
