Home Idea

One of my neighbor here had their front yard assembled like a patio and put some Bermuda grass and a twig swing with patio cushions. I just noticed that they left hem soaking in the rain, tsk..tsk. I think setting a yard like them is not a good idea. Our place is prone to rain because were situated in a mountainous area, so ideally our front yards should be covered, that was what the architect told us and now I know he’s right. With these continuous rains an extended area to dry your clothes outside is best.

Rain, Rain, Please Go Away

Monsoon rains flooded most of the towns today. A lot of people were affected and I felt sad hearing the news about it. I only feel secured now that my family is living a an area that is not prone to flood but before I do get get scared with these kind of rain, continuous and non stopping :(( Hope the rain would stop so that no more families will suffer.

Stocking Space

I was the one who thought about the interior of our new home and we hired carpenters to execute the design, sadly I was frustrated with the outcome of the cabinets. They are not what I imagined it to be. I don’t know, maybe they rushed on doing the job or perhaps they only have little knowledge on cabinetmaking on that really have the skill or mastery thus the result. I’m thinking now of ordering ready to assemble kitchen cabinets to stop my frustrations. I need more stocking space anyway so perhaps these might do well.
