As in my title above, I am in a frenzy buying metals like gold coins and silver stuffs. Gold has gone down in the past few months. Little India is buzzing with people going into jewellery shops and pawn shops buying gold, silver and all that glittery stuffs. Yes, the price of gold is really more affordable, compared to a year ago. But I prefer going online when it comes to shopping for the best bargain. Among the regular site I usually check is the www.goldeneaglecoin.com because you can get a lot of information and news. As a gold coin collector, nothing but the best is always in my agenda. And, the value will rise again and so shall my profits. Some friends of mine have started to do the same after learning about this lucrative hobby of mine… ah well. Sharing is a good thing.
I surfed online for ages yesterday. I wanted to find out what would be the fashion trend for 2014 and one site I read wrote that it would be Vintage clothings. Hmmm… I had not went into detail reading then so this morning I wondered if Vintage clothing meant newly designed clothes that had the old aged look or it meant that clothes that had value because they belong to the old age era and reworn again being a second hand goods were the reason for Vintage.
I knew it is too early to tell but sometimes it is a good thing to find out early as I am looking into starting a clothes retail business so any tip on fashion trends are really useful.
I have been meaning to get some proper reading lights in the living hall. The ones we have currently are warm lightings. It’s nice and all but not really great when you need to read. With warm lightings, sometimes I can feel that I need to squint my eyes after a while because the reading material gets dimmer and dimmer. However I am quite happy to get some alternative decorative lights for the dining area and when I saw an ad while reading a blog, the line that reads italian lighting - click here really worked on me. I was really curious what kind of lighting do Italians use… would that be something of the classical era whereby we get chandeliers and all that sort of beautiful stuff? What do you think?
In case you haven’t noticed, school vacation has started. Kids are happy, the roads aren’t as jammed and the buses aren’t hogging roads. Bus lanes are free to run without buses and cars coming into the way to drop kids off. School security guards are also more relaxed and offices in school are quiet. No kids, no shouting, no arguing, no crying in the school compound… what a big difference.
The school is slated to do some painting and upgrading works since the holidays will be for a month. No kids to disturb them and lower risk of accidents. Great.
On the best thing is that no more cars waiting and parking outside my house each morning and afternoon too! No one to trample my little grass and no ice cream and sweet wrappers littered here…hahahhaha
But. I miss those kids’ laughter and their joyful unreserved chats, and smiles…
I want to print some namecards for my friend, as a gift for her new business. She is going to start a boutique selling beautiful clothes for big sized women and men. I figured this business is a great idea as we all will grow bigger, errr usually after childbirth or as we aged and not really taking care of fitness and diet as much. Also, men do put on weight after marriage because… hmm simply because of their wives progress in cooking! Don’t you think so? I guess I must go and ask those local business card printers if they can give me a good deal and what I need in order to print a namecard for my friend. Some of my friends say that it can be done in a day or two for simple ones and up to a week for more complicated ones.
I hope they have some samples for me to grab some idea… or should I give her a voucher from the printer itself?
I am crazy over claypot chicken rice lately. I don’t know why but I suppose it’s a craving that suddenly hit me. I went on a hunt for this yummy meal and found a few, but not to my expectations… I want to taste the original claypot rice that they actually cook over a charcoal stove slowly. You can smell the fragrant charcoal infused into the rice that is moist and flavoured with chicken chunks, egg, Chinese sausage, some bits of salted fish and mushroom…mmm they are really yummy.
So, to make sure I get what I want, really want, I am now on the hunt for claypots… so that I can cook them over my charcoal stove. I need to satisfy my cravings soon!
Anyone tried those purple clay pots that is now very popular for slow cooking? Not for stove but I was wondering if they are useful for home cooking..
Older means Wiser… well, that is what my best friend told me when I quipped that I can’t hear what she was saying when I said I’m getting older, and my ears aren’t that great anymore… what a compliment, especially when a couple of middle aged women goes shopping and talking at the top of their voices as if we were standing right in front of those beautiful Roland Amplifiers in the music shop nearby… Well we always love to go to this mall because it is occupied by mostly musicians and band players and the music bars are just popping up everywhere in the basement. People who teach and play a musical instrument come here to meet up, share ideas, shop for their stuff or just to play and strut their instruments with their own groups. It’s cool. We can get free live music when the band plays or practices. We would grab a nice latte or iced coffee and sit nearby and listen to them. Free booze on Wednesdays’ Ladies Night… well well well, why not.
Vesak day is about 3 weeks away. I haven’t celebrated Vesak day for many years. I am thinking that I should. I used to follow my mom to the temple more often as a child and now that I am married and many many years later, I think I should have adopted what mom used to do.
Maybe because living away from home is my excuse for not doing all these. I could have called her or other elderly to find out about the cultures but then I am such a lazy person… I guess growing older makes one sober and wiser, if I am.. Anyway, I shall give mom a call and see how she is…… I miss her dreadfully. sigh.
Wish there are more holidays… I need breaks. Time off, Spa hols, Massages.. oh well. Keep on dreaming, yours truly…
For now I heard that Gold prices has gone down. Is that good news or bad? For people who bought gold when it was expensive in the past year or two, not too good. But for those who had been eyeing that piece of pretty piece at your local goldsmith, then, it is the right time to buy one, or two.
I know I once set my eyes on gold eagle coins because I wanted to invest in gold after hearing from my friend who has been investing in gold and other matter as a living. He drives a taxi and invest in some gold company and gets a pretty good amount of interest monthly.
But before one can even do anything like that, a capital is of course needed. Well, if I had that sum of money, I’d go for a holiday..which I need, badly..hahahah
The politics in Malaysia looks like it’s gonna be exciting. It’s going to be a 50-50 chance, I believe. Many people I know wants a change and I’m not sure how exactly how the result is going to turn out. How the people feel will decided how the country fall on.
Whenever I am on facebook, I see a my friends being very active posting YouTubes and articles on both sides of the political party and their promises should they be selected. All in all, the people will decide and the results will show what the people want.
On the other hand, in Singapore here, news are abundant too. And many people are really talking about it. Will a change be good? Will it affect the current status? Will life be better for the people? How chaotic will situations become? But I do know one thing for sure, which ever party that wins, life needs to go back to normal after the voting and results. Business will be ongoing and we definitely will go on our daily life as it is. Kids will go back to school, people back to work and business remains in operations.
Don’t you think so?
