Photobook

Just got my FIRST photobook and i am so pleased with it!!! (despite the not so cheap price ;p)

i have thought of compiling a photobook before but for some reason or other, i never got down to doing it .... and since i have time on my hands now - i revisited the idea a few weeks back and i am very happy that i went ahead with it :)

whilst i know i wanted a photobook, i wasn't sure which service provider to turn to.  a search on the internet turned up a few names and i tried to find feedback/reviews on these. 

i narrowed it down to 2 : just1book and photobook.com.sg .... but in the end, i did my first photobook with p;log!! which wasn't even in my shortlist in the first place. why?  all because they had a coupon in the NDP 2013 coupon booklet.  i was flipping through the booklet and saw the $20 coupon so decided that OK, p;log shall be it!!

Geeee, all the research beforehand for nothing?!?! LOLOL.

anywayz, i placed my order last friday and the book was delivered to me on Tuesday! and i am very pleased with it!! i am now inspired to compile more photobooks .... heehee.

and because this experience has been very smooth and painless, i am thinking of trying out another service provider! i shall let u know how that turns out when i am done with that!!

Renovation Learning - Toilet Bowls

I am such an ignoramus -- i didn't even realise there are 2 different types of toilet bowls.  I must have been walking around with my eyes closed.

1 - the wall-hung (in other words suspended) kind  -- typically used in hotels, malls and other establishments
2 - the floor connected type - the kind that i have been using since i was young -_-

only when my fren mentioned about the difference............ i had an epiphany!!! LOLOLOLOL. toilet bowls are toilet bowls you know -- i just use them i don't scrutinise them ....

so it opened my eyes and i began to notice the different toilet bowls wherever i went :D

if like me you are walking around your eyes closed -- please encourage me by sharing your moment of epiphany! hehehehe.

just for fun, here's a picture of the wall hung bowl. 

WALL HUNG Toilet HET
this toilet bowl picture i got from http://www.cheviotproducts.com/bathroom-toilets/wall-hung-toilet-het

and here is a picture of a typical toilet bowl we often see :
Bathroom Toilets, Petitell Round Front Toilet Bowl / Tank - White



i got this picture from : http://www.weismanhomeoutlets.com/pitetell-round-front-toilet-bowl-white/pedestal-sinks-toilets/

The things we learn every day!!! Even if its as mundane as about toilet bowls!!!!

 Choosing toilet bowls was really not easy. i had initially thought that it was about which brand.  then i realise i had to decide which type first! before the brand -_-

in the end, we got our thrones from Ideal Bathroom  - they were having a sale for selected toilet seats. i had initially chosen TOTO ones but they were more expensive so i settled for Ideal. Keeping fingers crossed!!

honestly ..... not very clever...

sometimes i wish i am not so transparent/real/honest - whatever term that one may like to use. 

i do think i have quite a high level of self awareness - but it ends there. i don't "tamper" with what i know. the brighter/more streetsmart folks will probably "adjust" their behaviour -- for a "more positive" outcome.

I am, unfortunately, an extremely open book.  one key reason i will not go far in the corporate world.

when someone says something that is superfluous, unconstructive, "empty" -- my "displeasure" shows -- it is written all over my face and my eyes especially!!! i can't stop them from rolling!! LOLOLOLOLOL/

corporate world aside -- even in my personal world - i can be too honest.

i know i should just nod my head, smile, make some equally superfluous comment when someone says something that i would like to roll my eyes at.  but i can't bring myself to do it.  i am so irritated by myself at times.  i have told myself to try harder. and i will!! i must practice not to be so literal and real. seriously. being a hypocrite sometimes goes a long way to keeping peace!!!
