  1. Watch A Chip Off The Old Block Online

    December 28, 2009 by barbara

    I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Christmas celebration.  While hubs was fiddling with the faucets in the bathrooms during the holidays, I spent my time watching A Chip Off The Old Block online.  I enjoy watching this comedy a lot because I like 60’s fashion.  Also my favourite actors and actresses are in this 20-episode drama.  They are Ron Ng, Myolie Wu and Shirley Yeung.  I have watched 8 episodes so far.  What about you? Are you a fan of A Chip Off The Old Block too?  Next drama on my list is The Watchdog’s Tale.  I just can’t wait.

    A good friend of mine has just moved into her new home recently.  She’ll be having a housewarming/Christmas party in 2 weeks’ time.  I have been shopping around for a nice housewarming gift for her.  I was looking at some water filters, throws, pots, rugs and many others but I still cannot decide what to get her.  I also came across a lovely candle holder from

  7. Finger Tongs To Protect Your Fingers When Cooking

    December 14, 2009 by barbara


    Sometimes when I cook, I would use my fingers to flip the food.  Eventhough I have the spatula with me, it’s still not enough to help me turn some food over.  I’m too lazy to walk over to the other side of my kitchen to get a pair of  chopsticks or a fork to help me.  Hence, I get my fingers burned sometimes. Well, I really do need these finger tongs from  This heat-resistant silicone fingertongs allows me to cook safely with my hands.  It is safe to use on coated pans, FDA food-safe silicone, non-stick and flexible.  Hmmm…Christmas is just around the corner.  I wonder if Santa is going to get me one 😉

  8. Favourite Online Shops

    While the man is into cars and Ferrari parts, I am into fashionable clothes, shoes, bags and accessories.  I love browsing my favourite stores such as Gap, Forever21, Club Monaco, Anthropologie and more.  A woman can never have too many clothes, shoes and bags.  My husband says that I am a certified shopper.  I am still shopping eventhough my closet is bursting with clothes.  So is my shoe closet :)  Below are some of the nice things I saw today.
