  1. Backpack Umbrella

    June 19, 2011 by barbara

    This Backpack umbrella is worn on the back and provides rain and sun protection while keeping the hands free.  It is great when you need to lug the grocery bags, a dog’s leash or child’s hand.  The umbrella fits into a pack which is strapped at the back.  It only takes a few seconds to unzip the pack, remove the umbrella and attach it to the pack’s built-in and adjustable support rod.  The umbrella covers a 39 1/4″ diameter.  It collapses easily against its pole.  No doubt looks funny but it is practical.  Available at Hammacher Schlemmer.

  2. Dragon’s Blood Elixir Hot Sauce

    June 18, 2011 by barbara

    Father’s Day is tomorrow.  Have you made any plans on how to celebrate this special day?  My good friend just bought 2 tactical rifle scopes for her husband and her dad for Father’s Day.  I did not get any gifts for the spouse this year but we are going out for a dinner. I was surfing the net just now and came across this Dragon’s Blood Elixir Hot Sauce that will certainly set the mouth on fire.  Since the spouse in into bbq these days, this sauce is just perfect. Love the name of this sauce.  May be too late for Father’s Day gift but I am sure the spouse won’t mind.

    HandyShell case for iPad2 is a must for those who are always afraid of dropping their toys.  It features a multi-function handle that offers a firm hold.  HandyShell’s handle is designed around a strong hinge to hold it firmly in place.  It can be used as a thumb ring for a one-hand grip or a stand in portrait or landscape mode.  You can even hand the iPad on the wall.  Available at at SpeckProducts.com.

  4. Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispies Squares

    June 17, 2011 by barbara

    Chocolate-dipped food seems to be the rage right now.  You can find chocolate-dipped marshmallow, cookies and cakes on sticks these days.  They are really nice party food I must say.  I was at the night market last night and came upon a stall selling chocolate-dipped bananas on sticks.  I did not get any though and they sure look funny.   I just came across this Jumbo Chocolate-Dipped Rice Krispies Squares from Etsy.com. It is 4 inches and dipped in creamy white or milk chocolate.  Then it is rolled in toppings like M&Ms, Reese pieces, oreos, etc.  Something different eh?  Perhaps I should try making this for my kid’s birthday party.

    This is so cute.  I just love this Pastasaurus Pasta Server from Perpetual Kid.   This prehistoric pasta server features an ergonomically designed handle and pasta-snaring teeth.   It is just perfect for serving your little guests.  I like its bright green colour.  I think I should get one too since I love cooking pasta. This lean, mean spaghetti serving machine makes a great gift too.


  6. The Perfect Sandals For Beach Holiday

    June 14, 2011 by barbara

    Before I look up the Marcus scrubs for a friend, I was scouring the internet, looking for a pair of nice sandals for my coming holiday.  We will be heading out to the beach again.  I have not stepped foot in this island for over 20 years hence, I am very looking forward to this trip.  I saw this pair of nice Salt-Water Sandals from DNA Footwear just now and I think it is just perfect for the beach vacation.

    What’s great about this sandal is that it is flexible, durable, comfortable and best of all, it stand up even in salt water.   They even have a few designs for the little feet.
