This is the day when I wish I am a mother so I can demand for a gift
Happy Mother’s Day to all hard-working, selfless and by far the only creature I know who can love unconditionally. Cheers to all your sacrifices. An insanely wonderful daughter like me is so easy to raise I may not be a mom yet but I know how much my mom loves me that’s why I am lucky.
So if you haven’t wrapped something for mommy, it’s not yet too late to apologize for misbehaving, haha!
If you know me, I only have 7 living room basics in my dream home: a comfy sofa, a stylish ottoman, a beautiful self-portrait, an elegant chandelier, an array of lamps, a travel photo wall and a piano. Is that 7? It doesn’t hurt to have a view of the infinity pool but I have accepted the fact that I will just fully utilize the pools in the 2 clubhouses of the subdivision. Infinity pools have no room for the budget-conscious me and in fact I even do not know when we will have the courage and the $$$ to build our dream house…but we are working, so hard for it.
If there is one thing that Rolex wants to have in his living room too is an aquarium. According to him, it will bring peace, serenity and good luck. This is not really my favorite thing until I discovered ways on how to make use of an aquarium other than the beliefs of luck and world peace.
I took this photo from the dental clinic yesterday where Rolex had a check up. How amazing that this aquarium was turned into a center table. I definitely like the idea. That’s hitting 2 birds with one stone, an aquarium + a table in one. However, I also came to realize that I can actually hit 2 birds with one stone with this idea : an aquarium + my self-portrait.
Do you get what I mean? Which do you prefer?

I love throw pillows as much as I love sofas. At the moment, I am fixated with polka dots. At home right now, my throw pillows are in purple and white polka dots. For a time I was also obsessed with stripes then I found these really cute animal printed throw pillows in very delightful colors at www.zalora.com .
Hand printed in Lithuania, this Zebra Pillow from Dwell Studio Home brings a surprise to every home. I’m sure kids will love this in their rooms and even kids at heart too.
I can’t wait for Homeland to start in September. I am still catching up with Scandal weekly. Both me and Rolex do but there is one new series that I am pretty sure, only me would endure and not him : The Carrie Diaries. While trying to figure out how can I watch it knowing that my housemate a.k.a my husband will not be very happy, I stumbled upon Candace Bushnell, the author of Sex and the City’s Manhattan apartment which she shares with her husband. Just a thought, did her husband like to watch Sex and the City? Oh well…
