  1. The Eames Elephant

    February 22, 2009 by barbara

    While looking around for an external hard drive for my laptop, I stumbled upon this cute toy for children.  It is the Eames Elephant at Vitra.com.  It can be used as a toy or as a decorative item for children’s bedroom.  Designed in 1945, the Eames Toy Elephant was made of plywood.  However, it is now available in plastic version and comes in a variety of colors such as pink, light blue, red, white, green and white.  This friendly-looking animal with its distinctive, over-sized ears is sure to bring cheer and enjoyment to many children’s and parent’s heart.


  2. Dissolving Paper Soap

    If you are a clean freak like me, I am sure you are going to love this Wild Rose Fragrance Dissolving Paper Soap from Organize.com.  It is one of the most convenient and hygenic ways to clean your hands when no soap is available.  The Dissolving Paper Soap has 30 single use soap sheets in a set ($6).  All you need to do is take out a sheet and add some water.  It does not contain liquid so it is completely safe to be carried on board a flight.  Definitely a lifesaver for outdoor enthusiasts or frequent flyers.

    Kids are going to love eating their snacks from this cute and fun Snack Ball container.  The orange part on top swivels open to reveal the precious snacks. It is rigid so parents do not have to worry about accidentally crushing the snacks.  Oh, another great thing is that this Snack Ball container is BPA Free, PVC Free and Phthalate Free.  Great for travelling, shopping or a walk in the park.  Two halves unscrew for easy cleaning and the lid snaps in place to keep snacks inside. The Snack Ball container is recommended for ages 9+ months and is just the perfect size for little hands.  Check out Boon Inc. if you wish to get one for your kids.


  6. Promotional Gifts

    February 2, 2009 by barbara

    I love getting freebies. Who doesn’t eh?  Just recently when we were at the mall, a satellite tv company was promoting a new programme and their staff was handing out promotional items to shoppers.  When we walked past their stall, the staff handed each of us a really nice custom branded pen.  I was really surprised that the staff even handed one to my toddler.  What a great marketing tool.   So far I have received promotional items such as t-shirts, mugs, stickers, clocks and even promotional bags such as recycled tote bags and eco-friendly shopping bags.  Isn’t that cool?

     


  7. My Friend’s New House

    February 2, 2009 by barbara

    During the Chinese New Year, I visited my good friend at her new house.  She and her family moved in about one month ago.  Boy, the house is huge and really beautiful.  It is a bungalow complete with a swimming pool.  There are 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 2 kitchens.  The house is tastefully furnished and I must say that my friend is very good when it comes to decorating her home.  She uses very simple but elegant decor items and everything is in the shade of brown and white.  Just lovely like those Wilmington NC real estate houses.

  9. Travelling During Chinese New Year

    January 22, 2009 by barbara

    The Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year falls on the 26th January this year.   My family will be travelling back to our hometown on the first day of the New Year for a celebration/gathering at my aunt’s house.  I just started to pack some clothes and I cannot believe that my 3-year old toddler’s clothes filled up one luggage
    bag.  We are only going away for 4 days but as a protective mother, I normally pack extra clothes for her.   There will be 3 luggage bags for the whole family.  Perhaps I should get one big luggage big so we do not need to lug 3 bags when we go away.  Have a safe journey if you also travelling during this festive season.
