    Check out this really cool instant inflatable pool from iwantoneofthose.com. You do not need any fancy pumps or pool supplies to inflate it.  It can hold itself up with the water you fill it with. All you need to do is to inflate the top edge ring and as you fill the pool, the water will lift the sides.  What a brilliant idea. This pool is 8ft wide, 2ft deep and only takes minutes to set up and dismantle.  It is made from heavy duty 3 ply PVC and polyester.  Great for the family to have a good dip when the weather is warm.  Get one now if you want to keep cool this summer.

    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.

  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.
