Our singing Christmas tree

December is here the happiest month for me, not only because of the coming holiday season but is also my birth month which falls exactly on Christmas day. 🙂 It’s time to take out all the  decors from the storage and set it up to feel the holiday season. It was the kids who kept on insisting to start decorating as they are all the ones that are more excited, well who won’t be, lol..

Our Christmas tree

Our singing Christmas tree

Anyways, I had the Christmas tree set up, but checked first all the lights if these were still working, unfortunately we had to discard one that we used last year on the tree and replaced it with the one we use on the window, this one is quite old but still very much in good condition. It plays Christmas medleys as it light up the tree, a two in one function. The tree is placed in the terrace, so at night when I want to relax, I just sit there, watch the twinkling lights and listen to the music, mesmerizing the joyful moments that holiday season brings from the time I was a little child and the happiness it’s giving to my children and will be giving to the children of my children and hopefully up to the next generations to come.

Listening to the Christmas carols played with roland rd 700 is also wonderful to the heart.

Like any ordinary woman/mother, I too have many fears that kept me sleepless at night and that is the safety of my family. What can be more painful than losing someone you love from sickness or accident. I pray to God night and day to protect them wherever they go and get home safe and sound. Listening to these fearless ladies strengthened my faith and encourage me to be more resilient and positive that everything will be alright.



Our Fearless ladies shared their own fears but these didn’t stop them from pursuing their goals in life and on the contrary encourages them more to get the things they want and successfully did.

Hanging plants in the terrace



Adding plants into your home not only beautify but helps in removing some of the toxins in the air inside and outside your home. Giving out fresh oxygen and eliminate harmful carbon dioxide in the environment, thus making our space more healthier to live on.


We are living in the city and having a big spacious lawn is out of the question unless you are a millionaire that can afford such a big space, which we are not. Even if we want to plant various fruit bearing trees, space is always the problem, so we just make do of what is available for us.  Growing small plants, veggies and decorative plants in plant boxes and pots like in the photos is the only option.

Here are the plants in my small terrace, to occupy all available space I made hanging plants, all real , no fake or made of plastics plants in the house for me, lol. These made our surroundings green and relaxing, just staring all the greens around make us proud with our efforts in taking care of them plus the fruits of our labor when we harvest fresh and organic veggies from our urban garden. Same feeling when you find the best chorus pedal for your kid’s guitar.
