Summer in your heart

We are lucky here in Malaysia because we have sun through out the year (even i long for the spring to see the never ending blooms).Living in tropical country have fashioned the people's mind to have tropical garden with tropical house, but if you love english garden with lots and lots of bloom and yearn for cosy porch and deck the tropical weather won't stop you.There is so much that you can do if you are creative enough, some people would stay away from painting their house white or plant perennial flowers because they are not easy to maintain,the easiet way is to have tropical garden or the balinese look,if you go anywhere along the sungai buluh nurseries you will find 'all bali looks" we are more bali than bali themselves:). If you spent sometimes on american or european architecture you will find that they are very similar to 'malay architecture' especially the victorian look,they have porch,decking which is same to our verandah concept,they have carving panels,swing,rocking chairs,railing,steps which are all similar to us.Most of us can't find many activities at home,if we need fun we normally go out from the house and spent time at the malls or any outdoor activities, we will meet old friends at starbucks,dome and we rather go to cinema than watching movies at home. If you create your home in such way that it becomes heaven to you and your family,you don't have to go far to find serenity,having barbeque at your backyard is more fun than having spare ribs at chilies,sipping mocha at cosy porch with your dear friends is more meaningful than sitting at the uncomfortable chairs at dome, making pizza at your outdoor dining with your kids is more wonderful than sitting at the mall watching people and spreading a tartan cloth under the big tree with good novel and a basket of strawberries and cream will heal you tiredness and rejuvenate your soul.Lets love our homes.

This is the new area that we're going to live, i love the blooms along the street.


A picture i ve taken from one of the blog belongs to a lady in America,the bushes add tranquility to the house.

It will be so nice if you could set up a setting like this at your porch and catch up with old friends.


I rather sit here with my mocha, magazine, wear my comfy clothes,no make up..i wont miss Starbucks.

The deck and railing adds charm to the house..so much of resort feel here.


You will be so lucky if you have this view from your deck.

A covered porch is a good solution especially if you want to put cushions and other fabric based materials at your porch.

I would like to have a small space like the above picture next to my garden where i can store all my knick knacks,do my painting etc there.

A simple but cosy setting will welcome any guests.

I wish to have a gorgoues entrance like the above.

MamaTiaMia said...

hi ann, on how to maintain the whiteness,i dont find it difficult as i like the white colour to age and become slightly yellowish and i like the chips and cracks too as it will become more vintage.For kitchen cabinet if you have it in white you must get a powerfull hood and you ca't excape doing chores like wiping and touching up here and there especially if you have a white fencing.

annhuzi said...

wow lots of work but sure worth it ya, serve as gd workout too :)

Hi just came upon your blog from Google after I
entered in, "Blogger: We Tell Sweet Stories" or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). In any case, I'm grateful I found it simply because your subject material is exactly what I'm looking for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't mind if I gather some material from here and I will of course credit you as the
source. Thank you.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance. I must say you've done a very good job with this.
Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari.

Superb Blog!
