    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.

  6. 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.

  10. Staying Fit & Trim In 2009

    January 16, 2009 by barbara

    I started to go on a diet about 6 months ago.  Since then, I have lost about ten pounds. Yay!!!  I am so happy and proud of myself for following strictly with the diet.  I feel great now because I have lost 2 dress sizes.  It is certainly not easy being on a diet. I cannot eat most of the things that I enjoy such as muffins, scones, bagels, pastas, noodles and everything that has a lot of carbo.  I am trying my best to maintain my current weight now by still continuing with the diet.  However, I have decided to let go every Sunday and this means I get to eat whatever I want on that.  I try not to go crazy stuffing myself with food on Freedom day but eat moderately instead.  With this arrangement, I hope my cravings for certain food will reduce.

    One of my wishes or resolutions for this year is to stay fit and healthy.  I intend to join a yoga class in the morning after my toddler has gone to school. She goes to school for 3 hours daily so that is the best time for some “ME” time.  Before I could check out a gym class in my neighbourhood, a friend of mine suggested that I join her for Line Dancing class.  Ain’t that great?  I love to dance.   My friend has been with the class for 5 months now and yesterday, I followed her to class to check it out.   I really enjoyed it although I find that the line dancing steps are pretty tough to follow.  Well, I am sure with a lot of practice and perseverance, I will be able to dance just like the ladies in the line dancing class.  Now, all I have to do is to start shopping for some exercise gears such as tights and t-shirts,.  I also need a pair of good shoes for dancing so I will be checking out some stylish and comfortable shoes. Oh I also need a few pairs of socks too :)
