A day of my life passing

My experience with a day of life

I actually really have NOTHING to talk about which is really depressing. HAHA. I have alot of things to blog about but they seem kind of mundane and I don’t really have much inspiration. Sooooooo, I’ll just bomb alot of photos in here that we took on one of our trips to Chinatown and Ikea. The pictures are preeety self explanatory. So just look and enjoy?

CHINATOWN! (:

Chinatown

This was taken outside one of the Tamil temples there.

gift

This is actually a really great gift you can give to people who really like calligraphy or like Chinese Chinese style stuff. My friend was someone who was like really very traditional Chinese and she learns like Chinese poems and calligraphy and stuff like that. So, its really hard for me to buy a gift for her but I found this perfect gift!!

You all should buy it, I would say its better to get it done with multiple colours like mine and not just a plain colour and prefably in Chinese characters cause I don’t really like the English characters that he did. Also, I suggest you don’t pay the extra money for the extra scroll. I suggest you keep the money and buy a full glass frame from Ikea (about 5 bucks?) and frame it yourself. It would look soooooo much better than on the flimsy scroll. =X

Its about 20 bucks I think the drawing. So its pretty worth it, he takes around half an hour to draw and you can stand there and observe him while he does it. Its really amazing cause this art piece is done with a simple piece of wood block and various colours!

So check it out when you can! (:

IKEA!

First up, you should always go for the free drinks in Ikea if your a member! (Free flow of coke, ice lemon tea, sprite) One member is entitled to TWO free drinks! So you can totally pop down and bring your business partner or spouse or something. Purchase some of their food (NOT THE FISH) and then drink till your hearts contents!

CHEERS! And a quote to share about families…
“Important families are like potatoes. The best parts are underground.” -Francis Bacon

The happiness between each family is often what is not seen in the surface. Dig deep within you and the beauty of your family will never fail to astound you. (:
