Home and Garden.

Hi folks:) Borak session is at the end of this entry ya:)


We welcome Ribbon and Heart at our home today.The original Ribbon was lost few months back,the girls and Uwan miss her a lot, today i took the three of them to Pet Shop and we bought these two furry cuties:)


Tia and Mia are really happy,uwan too infact:):) 


I asked husband whether he has any carpentries skills..he said "of course!"..well if you say so let's find some wood and roof and build ribbon and heart's home together:):) i would love to do that..when i was small my abah was very handy,he can build bangsal,reban ayam,pagar and many,many things.And it is always nice to see the result even if he made a simple bench for our garden.The best handwork that i really love was a rose arch..he built an arch and my emak planted country roses at the base,after few months we have roses bushes crawling the arch..the roses were pink and had sweet smell,it was really lovely..if i close my eyes i can still smell the sweet scent:)



he,he i finally can upload and edit pictures using my Macbook Air now..thank you to Ikin,she came this evening and  gave me an extensive tutorial:) I love my Mac more now..scrolling,editing, is so much easier and fun:):) I love this vignette effect..you gonna see more of it after this.


This entry is very much about garden..if you don't like gardening and planting you gonna be bored to death! her..heee.We bought bitter gourd(peria katak) and angled loofa (petola) seeds from Cameron so we gonna  grow it today. I always love gardening and i feel that planting&growing bring wonderful feeling and satisfaction. I want Tia Mia to develop this hobby and they have showed a very good sign.


We started with transferring Hyacinthus into bigger pot..i have a big challenge here since few readers are looking forward to the result:) Shamsuhada..harap2 den punya Hyachintus ni hidup and boleh bagi "recipe" kat kau:):)


The two getting ready to plant the seeds:):)


I taught them step by step on how to put soil in the pot,making hole in the middle etc,etc..as we going through it i told them few things about gardening like cactus cannot be watered everyday as they retain water in their body,plants need sun for making their own food and like any other living things they need to be love and cherish too:):).


Both are good at planting,they are fast learners:)



Our garden is not big but we have enough space to do our activities.


Hyachintus already been transferred into bigger pot,i have put some fertilizers and it needs to be watered twice a day.


Mia watering the pots.


Tia with her bitter gourd seeds.



Okay Tia..now make a small hole and put the seeds inside,keep apart each seed from one another.


Seeds and special fertilizers already in the pot.


Mia watering the ivy.


Now all ready,hope it will bear good result in few weeks time.


These are the mini cactus we bought from CH:)


And they found home near our garden sink.


Done with garden.let's go inside and see what need to be change..cuti gonna end soon..so better do alih mengalih,tukar menukar now;)


Kitchen got a new green floor mat and table cloth.


The table cloth was from British Homes before they closed down..tersorok  lama in the wardrobe..so made a point to change the kitchen table cloth today.


Rack at the back needs some tidying and cleaning too.


Even ini pun kena kemas kan..i suka tengok bawang,kentang simpan dalam rattan basket in pullout cabinet but my present small kitchen don;t allow me to have it..i once had it at the sold house,one day if i have an island in the kitchen i will make sure to have the pullout rattan basket.


I bought many potted plants from Ikea yesterday..the stove got a pot too:):)


And a white pot for the kitchen table.


Actually i ve been wanting to replace my sofa in the bedroom for a long time as it is very old and worn out already.But it is not easy to dispose an old furniture at my area..so i decided to give it a little facelift:)


Yesterday i bought a RM19.90 green blanket from Ikea and  gave the sofa a nice wrap:):) It gave an instant refreshing look.This sofa holds many memories; it was our pride and joy when were just got married, it witnessed me sang rhymes and read babies books when Tia Mia were babies..few years back every morning without fail before i go to office i will sit on the sofa with Tia and Mia on my right and left lap and read book to them.So this old lady need a facelift and is saved by Ikea blankie;):)


One whole day doing 'home and garden'..now time to layan tummy..as ikin was in the house today i cooked fish curry with CH eggplant,mixed veges soup and sardines with petai:)


Walaupun Home and Garden entry i just wanna show a korean jubah i bought for myself while shopping baju for uwan today:) Nice isn't it? I met an elderly lady at the shop,she was buying baju for herself so she told me that  i will look nice in this dress as i have the 'height'..she was very friendly and went on seeking my advice on the blouse and pant that she's going to buy:):)


Okay lah that's about it ..today's garden tips;wash all your garden tools after using ,keep it together   in either a box or basket so that it will be easier for you to use it next time.


Papa is not working tomorrow and we have promised these two sunshines to go see Alvin and The Chipmunks.If the plan is on this will be their first trip to cinema,Ikin has recommended Gold Class at GSC,she said the package includes food (sandwiches,popcorns,drinks and blanket) there will be very small audience in 1 cinema.It is quite pricey as it priced at RM40.00 + RM10.00 = RM50.00 per head...but it is quite tempting to give a try..let see tomorrow whether we can get a place;):)

tia and mia will have variety of hobbies ikut mama ni. lepas ni belajar bertukang pulak

tia mia having hands on science lessons! taking care of living things, plants and animals, satisfaction guaranteed!

u have eyes for finding beautiful things such as their pink, green flower hats! and u treat ur belongings with love and treasure its memories..sayang kan the sofa which witnessed motherly love :)

rose kampung memang wangi walaupun kelopak dia mudah terlerai..dulu kat rumah nie ada..memang tahan lasak. Kadang2 benda yang kecil2 boleh jugak bawak perubahan dalam rumah kita kan..walaupun simple2 things mcm tukar alas meja, alas kaki bersih dan baru dah make me feel good :-). Ivy tu da besar me tengok, hari tu beli mcm kecil jer nampak..semalam pergi jugak ikea nak mencari tempat black pepper, tapi dah takde lagi yang wood punya..nampak few ivy tapi pokok dia kecik2..takut kalau beli tak hidup..Happy New year to mamatiamia and family :-)
