Today is the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year. My family and I had a sumptuous reunion dinner last night with our relatives. It was great to enjoy a lovely meal with the family. Tonight we will be having another dinner with my husband’s uncle and his family. I think I would need to get myself a fitness equipment when the new year celebration is over. All this eating will surely make my clothes tighter. I hope all of you had a great celebration with your family and friends.

I saw these Get The Hint Stickers at Urban Outfitters recently and can’t help feeling amused. This pack of adhesive stickers are great for giving out hints such as Breaking news (good news, bad news), Load of Crap and Gentle Reminders (Do this, Take hgh releaser). They are especially fun around the office. Each pad has approximately 20 sheets. Start sticking them now.

Chinese New Year is only 2 weeks away and I haven’t bought any new clothes for the celebration. It has always been a tradition in my family (in most family too) for everyone to usher in the New Year with new clothes and shoes. I have checked out a few stores at the malls but nothing caught my eye. Most of the clothes are sleeveless and I don’t wear sleeveless because I have flabby arms. I was checking out my favourite store online – JCrew and saw something that I really like.
Tissue Garland Tank
Vintage Matchstick Jeans
You think I would be able to fit into them and look great? Well perhaps I should get a threadmill with the nordictrack promotion code and start exercising. There is 2 weeks more to Chinese New Year so I think I should be able to lose a couple of pounds

I came across some really good ways to repurpose everyday items from RealSimple.com. I never knew so many things can be so useful, just like auto insurance. I definitely look at things in a different way now. Here are some of my favorites.
1) WD 40
It can be used to remove crayons from any surface such as plastic, metal, TV screens or freshly painted walls. Just apply a small amount and rub away with a clean cloth.
It can be used to remove old stickers from mirrors, glass and bumpers. Just apply a generous helping to persistent adhesives and scrape it off with a putty knife.
3) Laundry bag
Great for keeping lids, baby bottle caps and other small items from falling through the dishwasher rack.
They can be used to clean a ceiling fan. Just slide an old pillowcase over a blade, then grip the case and pull it back. This will keep the dirt contained.
When your container has smell, just use some newspaper and put it into a plastic container, seal it and let it sit overnight. By next day, all the smell will be absorbed by the newspaper. What a great Food container deodorizer.
