Dominos Fabulous Four

DominosMY_Fab4_Microsite-Desktop

There are days when I don’t feel like cooking so we order pizza. Well, that’s because Domino’s is the only food delivery service that is available to my housing area at the moment. Usually my eldest will want cheese pizza while the second one wants bread, the cinnamon one.

Occasionally, we also order the add on menu like mozzarella stix or chicken crunchies.

So when I saw the promotion for this Fabulous Four today, I thought let’s give it a try.

The box comes with 4 add on menu which I’m pretty confident the children will eat at least 3 out of 4 -the cinnadots, chicken crunchies and mozzarella stix.

The chicken drummets was not eaten, they tasted it a bit but don’t like it.

Sigh, what can I say, the children are really fussy eaters, sob sob!

How To Measure Your Ring Size

Lately there’s a lot of nice rings from China sold on eBay. Being an avid eBay bidder, I’ve been trying my luck to get a nice one below the price of USD1. The shipping worldwide is usually free.

44cent-ring

The above ring I got with the price of USD0.44. This one is in size 7. The first few rings that I managed to bid were in bigger size as I was not sure what is my ring size.

ring-size-US

The chart above shows the measurement for the ring size. This is for US ring size.

ring-size-9

I have received the one in the picture above and it is so nice, like the antique type you saw in historical drama. However it is size 9 and definitely too big for me to wear. I am still waiting for a few more designs which I managed to win.

Washi Tape On eBay

washi-tape-box

A few months ago I started collecting washi tape after seeing how pretty it adorned cards and letters sent by my penpal. I bought most of my washi tape collection through bidding on eBay. First I compared the price on eBay with the price that local seller offers and when the bidding price is much lower than the local price, then only I will proceed to bid.

So far I have about 30 washi tapes with different size – 5mm, 7mm and 15mm. I hope to use them on the travel journal as well which is on its way from China. I will share the outcome of my washi tape art later :)

Augmented Reality Flash Card

augmented-reality-flashcard-space

A friend gave this to my son as his birthday present last year. At that time he was still too young to appreciate the 4D flash card. This year we decided to buy him his own iPod rather than having both of them fighting over the one at home. So Hubby installed the apps and showed him how the flashcards work.

Embark on a fantastic space exploration experience right within the confines of your home with Space 4D+ by Octagon Studio.

Space 4D+ is a collection of educational Augmented Reality flashcards about space. In these cards are a mine of information about the solar system, planets, space objects, satellites, rovers and space missions. See the solar system and the planets come amazingly to life in Augmented Reality.

All you need to do is to download the Space 4D+ app FREE from App Store or Google Play store and then scan the cards.

To activate the space 4D+ cards, users have to register a serial number that is printed to the instruction card. Each serial number can be used on a maximum of three (3) devices. After registering the serial number, the user can scan the cards using the space 4D+ to begin a fascinating journey of discovery.

I’m thinking to get another set of card from Lazada, maybe the one on dinosaur.

Of Jarum Tujuh And Bougainvillea

jarum-tujuh-bougainvillea

I have no intention to do any gardening this morning because I just had my morning shower and I just want to sit down and enjoy my cup of hot Milo. But then when I went out to water the plants I realized these two pots of jarum tujuh and bunga kertas were almost toppled to the ground.

So putting on my gardener’s hat, I tried to put those plants upright but they just can’t because of the heavy foliage. Those thorny branches from jarum tujuh somehow got tangled with the thick old branches of the bougainvillea..sigh!

So I thought since that’s how the problem looks like, I might as well prune some of the thick foliage of jarum tujuh with my big gardening scissors. After a quick pruning, the plant looks just nice but I was left with a massive junk of thorny branches.

Next I tried to tackle the problem with the bougainvillea. First in order to make it stable, I pruned most of the branches even the old one. I’ve had this bunga kertas for the past 13 years, mind you. After pruning it, I was able to move the pot around. But then I noticed that there’s a thick root coming out from underneath the pot, so no matter how I nudged the pot it keeps on leaning to one side. I have no choice but to severe the root from the soil underneath the pot. Once I was able to put the pot upright, I started to clean up all the debris.

The cleaning process took some time because the branches got tangled with money plants. As I raked the foliage, they keep on tangling more. I have to stop raking and cut all the money plants first.

It makes me realized one thing about how problem arises in life. Sometimes menial stuff happens that at first just annoy and irritate us. We get busy with life and let it festers some more. We don’t extinguish the problem from its root and soon it creates havoc.

We get tangled so bad until we get hurt from the toppling and the heavy foliage with thorns eventually scratches our soul. To be free we need to severe some connection. In order to move on and move forward, we have to let go something even if we have had it with us for so long.

That’s what I learned from my plants today. And this song lingers in my head somehow.

Entah mengapa mataku ini
Halaman orang nampak berseri
Laman sendiri berwarna warni
Tak bererti

Terlalu asyik memandang bintang
Merenung bulan tinggi di awan
Bumi dipijak
Rumput yang hijau kulupakan..
