Stunning Purple Orchid

One of our neighbours is an orchid seller.  His house has becomes an orchid nursery with lots of orchid plants, he has got several dogs to guard his plants too.

With a gesture of thanks for giving him some of our unwanted woods, he gave us a pot of this Purple Orchid.  Though it is only an ordinary orchid species, we feel very thankful.  

One thing I like about orchid is its long lasting flowers.  Here is the stunning purple orchid at its full blooms.   

There are a lot to learn about caring the orchids, but for now, let it blooms and we will learn as it grows.

Online shopping spree

I have had an online shopping spree last month. After a long wait for the parcels to arrive to my office, only realised that most of the parcel are actually delivered to my office post box as all of them are from different sellers and the size of the items as small. they can be easily slotted into post box.  Glad that my purchases arrived safely.  Since we can not personally touch the items before buying, there is no surprise that some are of low quality but still usable and the prices are relatively cheap, so can not complain much. 

glass crystal ball chandelier, arrived with no scratches, very satisfy with them.
surprisingly this silver bracelet is quite heavy and the quality is better than I expected
due to long distance handling process, I can expect some kind of damage, luckily this can be fixed easily. Below is the front of the hair clip.

very light weight bangles
jewelry set, a bit light weight

I am very satisfied with this peacock hair clip, I tried it on immediately

 below are a heavy weight dragon key chain (good quality), dragon image pendent, clove necklace and a pair of heart shape earrings

I like this set of Jewelries, the quality is better than the earlier set above.

Home Feng Shui Decorations

Do you believe in Feng Shui ?  To me, it is about being in the environment that involves natural Science, Geography and the human visual.  When someone feeling uncomfortable in a certain area that's the effect of "bad" feng shui to that particular person, then something need to be done to make the place comfortable for his/her living, like de-cluttering and cleaning up (which we are trying hard to do), or removing intruding shape edges, etc.

We always see a lot of feng shui decorations in and around the buildings, shops and people's house.  Most of those decorations are very pleasing to our eyes, with that effect, our mood and spirits are lifted up.  That is the magic of figurines feng shui I think.

I particularly like the little colourful fountain that I bought around this Chinese New Year, I hope the movement of the water and the colourful lights will bring in positive chi into our home.

What do you think of my Feng Shui decorations ? Do you apply Feng Shui at your home or office ?

My home grown fig trees update in March 2017

After 10 months into planting fig trees, we have experienced many ups and downs like many other endeavors. Trees too need our loving tender care. For the last few weeks, our fig trees have started fruiting. Under ideal conditions, a fig takes more or less 2 months to ripen. Let me give you a tour around our home grown fig trees which are bearing fruits.

Different varieties has its own distinct texture and taste, that's why fig collectors are cultivating many different types of varieties and their prices are also varies.  Will update again when they are ripen.
