  1. Being Tidy & Organized = Loving Myself

    by , Yesterday at 10:43 PM (My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal)
    I realize this after 3 nights of procrastinating cleaning my room..tidying up the shopping bags & organizing their content.
    I have been putting it off because I want to enjoy my small staycation at home.
    But looking at all that mess doesn't make me happy indeed.
    I decided to drop everything & begin cleaning, organizing. It was tiring, but the results made me feel good,peaceful & calmer.

  2. Enjoying My Day Off

    by , 07-30-2014 at 05:44 AM (My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal)
    Today is nice & sunny..
    I went to do grocery shopping, had a nice lunch (frugal price but tasting good) and also stopped by the Gadget store to check an android phone with auto focus camera but it's out of stock.
    I also stopped by at a Chinese stall to buy steamed dumplings (dimsum) & yogurt at a small dairy shop.
    Now I'm home relaxing, thinking about cleaning my room & organizing the drawers.

    We have embarked on a kitchen renovation. Contractor is signed up to come mid-August to start ripping things out. I am packing up dining room stuff to make room for kitchen stuff as it is our makeshift kitchen ...
  5. A New Day

    by , 04-25-2014 at 09:37 AM (Living A Simple Life)
    I realize that I can't just stop working at my part-time job but I can drop down to one 4 hour shift which is on Sunday evenings. I can live with that and feel such a relief as I have been so burnt out!

    Today I am taking over in the kitchen with the meal cooking, I haven't really done this in a long time as my fiancees boys are kind of picky. I will not ask them what they would like to eat as their dad does , I find that they can't agree, especially the 12 year old. Take it or ...
