Retro Typewriter

This Retro typewriter connects to a tablet, wow it’s like the classic and modern combined together in this era of technology where everything is almost possible.

I still remember my college years (yep, I’m old-school, lol) and having to punched each keys when doing my assignments then in our manual typewriter, we can’t afford the electric typewriter :). The sound “takatakatak” it produced in the middle of the night when I was hurrying to finish the project to be submitted on the next day but didn’t want to wake up everybody that were already asleep. And when accidentally punched a wrong letter, there’s a white ink or eraser to cover it up, then punch the right key, whewww.. hahaha, good o’l days!

Wishing to get this new keyboard/typewriter for old time’s sake, lol and of course it’s easier now to use that the classic one..

Calamansi Tree harvests – Urban Gardening

 

This is our Citrus tree in front of the house, local name for this fruit is Calamansi (Calamondin) Scientific name: × Citrofortunella microcarpa. The juice tasted like lemonade with a tint of sweetness.

This is my first full harvest two months ago, extracted the juice, put in a small container and freeze for future use.

and this is the second harvest two weeks ago, did the same, extracted the juice and stored in the freezer to preserve and use anytime when not in season and bit pricey. This fruit is rich in vitamin C and can be drink as juice or use as condiments/ingredients for cooking and also a delicious dip for fried dishes. I feel so happy that after years of waiting we finally tasted the fruit (literally) of our labor specially my hubby who is into urban gardening, feels like  using a mackie srm450 speaker to express his happiness, lol…

Why buy when you can do-it-yourself (D-I-Y Project)

 

Remember this car seat that hubby turned into a sofa and now sitting at our terrace where we relax after a busy day.

And a wooden bench he made from wood scraps he bought at a surplus hardware. I’m thinking if he could make another one like the piano bench at musiciansfriend.com I saw yesterday while browsing the internet, told him the idea and he is very much willing to get his hands for new D-I-Y project at home, he’s already drawing the picture and  measurements for this new project and excited to start soon and so do I, to see how it will turn out. 🙂
