Hello spring time! Hello everyone! Wow, quite such awhile since I was away in this blog. This is the effect for being busy most of the time. First of all, I want to express my gratitude to my Big Boss for giving us a wonderful weather today. It was such a nice spring weather with blues sky and sunshine the whole day. I feel alive and recharge again!
various kinds of tulips in my backyard. I love these spring flowers!
I got some photos of tulips for you here! For me, tulips are magical flowers. Everytime I see them in my garden, it always reminds me of my visit to the World’s Second Biggest Garden, the Keukenhof which is located in Lisse, the Netherlands. I had the chance to explore that garden paradise with friends back in spring 2013. I really love that place. I am glad that I have some tulips in my garden which reminds me of Keukenhof from time to time. I am glad that the tulips keep on coming back every spring season. I am always excited to see them blooming. (more…)
Let me share this story first before I proceed with the main topic. I have a friend who is married to an American guy. Actually, the husband is earning a good money because he has a good job as an officer in the US Army. Last year, I had a conversation with this friend of mine. The husband asked her if she really wanted a new car. Can you imagine driving a luxury car like BMW if your husband will buy one for you?
To make the story short…. she told her husband that her car is still not so old and she can drive it for more years. They decided not to buy one because she said that for that money, she can already buy hectares of land in her home country. I agree with her decision. Once you drive the car for some kilometers, it starts to depreciate. On the other hand, if you will invest it in buying real property like a parcel or hectares of land, in some years, it will appreciate. This simply means that investing on buying a land is the one of the best investments you can do because its value will increase after some years especially if you have a good location. (more…)
This is indeed a long term project. We started this ten years ago and up to now it is still going on. I guess, this home improvement for our retirement home will take some more years. I would say, another 5-10 years depending in the finances. Until we will retire there, I believed it is already done.
The terrace/patio which is still going on. I hope the workers can already paint it before I arrive there…soon!
I am really proud of this project. It cost a lot of hard work and money but it is slowly paying off because as of now, we are seeing the concrete results and the house is already standing. (more…)
Turn on the television on any day, and you’re likely to see an advert for some new cleaning product that promises to do what no other cleaning product has been able to accomplish. A fashionably dressed actor joyfully demonstrates how to remove those tough stains with little or no effort at all, then steps back and admires her handy work (It is usually a woman, isn’t it?).
Let’s be honest here. When was the last time you wore a snappy outfit to clean your house? And if we’re being honest, we can’t help but wonder why that super housekeeper on the telly allowed her walls to get so dingy in the first place. But that’s all beside the point, really. What really matters to us is whether the products we use will actually perform as advertised, how much they will cost, and what chemicals are in the toxic brew that can dissolve away such filth without the user breaking a sweat (or into hives, for that matter).

As the learning landscape shifts towards a technology-driven experience, it’s becoming more common for Australian schools to adopt the ‘BYO iPad’ policy. As remaining on the forefront of technology is now almost an essential part of life, it seems only natural to ensure our future leaders become associated with new advanced technologies within their everyday learning environment. Here at Brus Media we know it may seem unnecessary to teach six-year-olds how to use a tablet, however the facts remain that tablets have many advantages that go beyond general entertainment, videos and gaming apps. Tablets have certainly gained momentum for business use, general use and entertainment use. Here’s why schools have jumped in on the tablet revolution as well. (more…)
