blue and pink

Oh My God...look at this place. I love it. I don't usually like to see something pink for a room decoraiton but this one completely blows my mind. I can say that pink is not bad at all if you can really combine it with other colors. And this house is the pioneer of it. Look at how nice black is combined with pink. Who would've thoght that pink can actually be friends with black. This is an apartment located in Paris with the architect named Anne Geistdoerfer. The apartment has open sunny spaces, furnished with fantasy, a library for many books completed with delightful green and pink accents. it's like living in one of those island of the fairies.

This is Love...

I found this really nice words of love on Le Love. If you love romantic things, you should check out the blog, it's full of love love and love. The reason why I'm posting this is's Friday...yay! Friday I'm love, Saturday I'm in love, Sunday I'm in love..It's a weekend fill up with tons of Love...

"As I sat in a crowded room full of strange faces,soberly observing,imagining the mysteries behind each set of unrecognizable eyes,I turned to see this smile.A sparkle in his eyes, his arms outstretched,in an instant our bodies were contiguous where, even over the thump, thump of the deafening beat,our hearts rang strong against one another.Tangled together,we were a pendulum amongst battered barstools and broken tables.Strangers' stories lay neglected and forgotten,a heap of mystery in a cold dark corner.For this is the only story that matters.It is kept safe and warm between our beating hearts.Eyes locked, we could not help but smile:"This is Love."

Bloom House...

This unique house with distinctive decor is called Bloom house, it is located in Los Angeles. It has a really great interior, decorated with unusual and colorful furniture. The design is by Greg Lynn. I think this house is a cute modern house rather than a nice modern house. It means that when someone enters the room and see the ambiance, it brings sort of the happiness feelings to the person. Can you feel it? I can feel it right away=) I feel like I'm living in a carton space on one planet far from earth.

What life is about..

Here's one long posting. It's about 50 questions to make you think. Have you ever wondered about the simple things about life that sometimes you find it hard to find the answer? Here are those questions. For me, life is about knowing the right answer to the right question. it's about how to make a good decision about what to do or how to react. But there are times in our life when we made a slight mistake or even a big one. That's the time you must review the steps you've taken and if necessary, make good correction and the better thing you can do is to make it like a guidance for life. As if you've done the wrong thing, so next time you must not do it again. Life can be like a trial-error process but once you've done it right, make sure you always make the right step ahead.

50 questions to make you think

  1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?

  11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do?
  12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
  13. Would you break the law to save a loved one?
  14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?
  15. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
  16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?
  17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?

Chocolate anyone? ooooh I'm very sure that no one can reject chocolate. Kids, man, woman, old, young..anyone likes chocolate. I was craving on chocolate but too bad I didn't keep any chocolate left in my house so I guess I'll have to stop craving it until I buy my fave chocolate. We all know that chocolate is said to be good for our health. Isn't it amazing? BUT, you have to know what king of chocolate is good for our health. Not every chocolate is good. And of course, the chocolate with high sugar will not be good for our health. So, here's an information about chocolate.

Chocolate comes of age as a health treat.Chocolate. There are few foods that evoke as much passion as this decadent treat. Folklore from many cultures claimed that consuming chocolate instilled faith, health, strength, and sexual passion. Once an indulgence of royalty, it is now a treasured and accessible - and yes, even healthy - treat. So where did our infatuation with chocolate begin?

Where does chocolate come from, anyway?

The cacao tree, whose pods contain seeds that can be processed into chocolate, was discovered 2,000 years ago in the tropical rainforests of the Americas. The first people known to have consumed cacao were the Classic Period Maya (250-900 A.D.). They mixed ground cacao (cocoa) seeds with seasonings to make a bitter, spicy drink that was believed to be a health elixir.

What was chocolate's great allure?
To the Mayans, cocoa pods symbolized life and fertility. The pod was often represented in religious rituals, including marriage ceremonies, and was referred to as food of the gods. In central Mexico, the Aztecs believed that wisdom and power came from eating the fruit of the cocoa tree, and that it had nourishing, fortifying, and even aphrodisiac qualities. The Aztec emperor Montezuma even drank liquid chocolate daily to enhance his libido.Europeans get a taste of chocolate - and fall in love.Europeans got their first taste of chocolate in 1519, when Montezuma offered the spicy drink to Spanish explorer Cortes and his army. The Spanish conquistadors brought cocoa seeds back to Spain, where they introduced new spices and sugar to the liquid concoction. The fad drink spread throughout Europe, where it remained a beverage of the elite for centuries.
Chocolate becomes known for its powers of seduction.Chocolate's reputation as an aphrodisiac flourished in the French royal court. Erotic art and literature were inspired by the seductive substance. Casanova, the infamous womanizer, made a habit of drinking chocolate before his romantic escapades. Even today, romantic lore commonly identifies chocolate as an aphrodisiac.Chocolate goes global.The first machine-made chocolate was produced in Barcelona in 1780, paving the way for the mass production of chocolate. Later, mechanical inventions made it possible to produce smooth, creamy, solid chocolate for eating - not just the liquid for drinking. The first solid chocolate bar was developed by British chocolate maker Fry & Sons in the early 1800s.

When did chocolate become associated with Valentine's Day?
"It's believed that during the 17th century, lovers began exchanging mementos on Valentine's Day - sweet treats were one of them. In 1868, the first Valentine's Day box of chocolates was introduced [by Richard Cadbury]," - says Susan L. Fussell, senior director of communications for the National Confectioners Association.Three cheers for chocolate!In 1875, the first milk chocolate was introduced to the market by Daniel Peter of Switzerland. Chocolate became so popular around the world that even during World War II the U.S. government shipped cocoa beans to the troops.

Is chocolate really an aphrodisiac?
Not really, even though throughout its history, chocolate has been purported as one. Chocolate contains small amounts of a chemical called phenylethylamine (PEA), a.k.a. the "love drug," and it's been linked to the regulation of physical energy, mood, and attention. A tiny amount of PEA is released at moments of emotional euphoria, elevating blood pressure and heart rate. There is no evidence that PEA found in foods increases PEA in the brain - although many chocolate lovers may beg to differ!The 21st Century: Chocolate makes health headlines.Dark chocolate (as opposed to milk or white chocolate) contains healthful flavonoids similar to those found in tea, red wine, fruits, and vegetables. Studies have shown that small portions of dark chocolate can improve blood vessel flow and may improve blood sugar and insulin sensitivity to help reduce the risk of diabetes. But beware, chocolate candy has plenty of saturated fat and sugar, which can lead to weight gain, so enjoy small portions of as part of a healthy diet.

Need a time alone?

Do you like to be alone? Not alone in terms of being a loner or not being in a relationship or not being socialized but be alone as in having a "Me-time". Sometimes we all need to be alone. Just about 15 minutes of having a "Me-time" will do you good. In those 15 minutes you will be able to think whatever you want to think or just do nothing and clear up your mind. Trust me, you will feel good. What I like most of having a "Me-time" is being able to discover the things I've never discovered before about myself and the world surrounding me. One source stated that spending time alone is also extremely beneficial to our mental health and happiness. There must be some reason for that, right? Hare are why...
  • Self Discovery: Spending time alone gives you the ability to discover things about yourself and to get a real understanding of who you are. We have grown to appreciate the art of getting to know others, but in reality, it is even more important to get to know ourselves, our preferences, our likes and dislikes without other people’s influences.
  • Higher Sense of Independence and Increased Self-Esteem: Being alone and getting comfortable with being alone gives you a higher sense of independence. Relying on yourself to make choices and decisions increases your self confidence, which then permeates other aspects of your life, including the times you are in the presence of others.
  • No Need to Compromise: Often, we compromise when we are in the presence of others. We usually work with one another to reach agreement on everything, from what we will have for dinner to what TV show to watch. Spending time alone allows you to indulge yourself with the things you want to do and the things you love, without any negotiation.

  • Rejuvenation for Your Soul: Getting away from others allows you to decompress and relax. It gives you a break from the have tos and allows you to focus on the want tos. It lets you address your own needs as opposed to everyone elses and gives you the opportunity to rejuvenate and push the ‘restart’ button.

  • A Fresh Perspective: Time alone gives you the opportunity to clear your mind and to weed through a lot of thoughts. This allows you to get to the heart of what YOU really think as opposed to being told or influenced by others and their opinions. It gives you time to reflect on what is important in your life and how you feel about every day situations that need to be addressed.

  • Higher Appreciation for Those You Love: Giving yourself the ability to be alone allows you to have a greater appreciation for the time you spend with others. If you never have time for yourself, you’ll wish you did. It is important to find some balance in this; but once you do, you’ll enjoy your relationships even more.

The Seven Deadly Sins

What do you know about 'The Seven Deadly Sins'? I often hear the term but I have absolutely no idea what it is about. When I look up on the web, it says that 'The Seven Deadly Sins' is also known as the Capital Vices or Cardinal Sins, is a classification of the most objectionable vices which has been used since early Christian times to educate and instruct followers concerning (immoral) fallen man's tendency to sin. It consists of "Lust", "Gluttony", "Greed", "Sloth", "Wrath", "Envy", and "Pride".

But these seven deadly sins I'm posting is a bit different from the original deadly sins in a ways that it was made to guide us to our daily life attitudes and behaviour. So, you want to know what those sins are? Here goes...

  1. Waiting to be happy
    One of the biggest misconceptions ever is that once you’re successful, once you own a house, when you have a lot of money, or once you’re retired, you’ll finally be happy.
    But the truth is, you need happiness to achieve all of that in the first place.
    There’s an excellent text by Crystal Boyd from her book “Happiness is a Journey.” It reminds readers to not wait to be happy. And she does so in a really profound way that everyone can relate to. Remember, the longer you wait to be happy the less time you’ll actually have to be happy.
  2. Achieving success without helping others
    If you truly want to be successful then you can’t focus your entire efforts on yourself. You must help other people achieve their goals and their own success.
    There’s an old saying that the road to success is lonely, but it won’t be when you help others.
  3. Belittling the dreams of others
    Your dreams aren’t superior to any other person’s dreams.
  4. Complacency
    It’s one thing to be satisfied with what you have, but it’s another story when you’ve completely settled.When you settle and don’t create any new dreams to go after, you’ve basically given up.
  5. Not questioning
    One of the greatest things we can do for ourselves is to question our lives and things in it as much as possible.
    Questions like:
    - Why me?
    - Why not me?
    - Do I really love what I’m doing?
    We don’t need to have the answers right away, but we must keep thinking.
  6. Not attempt to change the world
    Changing the world is not as hard as it may seem. Even if you change the community and world around you, you’re doing a lot. Simple acts can create drastic change.
  7. Fearing
    The whole point of the original seven deadly sins was to instill fear in people. But living in fear isn’t living. Even if you’ve committed some of these sins don’t fear; acknowledging you’ve done so is all the forgiveness you need.

Branded Fashion Cupcakes

These cupcakes were inspired by the world's famous brands Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, Agent Provocateur and Betsey Johnson. “Fashion Cupcakes” is prop-styled by Lisa Edsalv and shot by Swedish photographer Therese Aldgard. I would like to have the LV cupcake and the Betsey cupcake....How about you? Anyway, what do you think about the Chanel cupcake? When I look at it I feel like it's not meant to be eaten ha ha..I don't know why, maybe because it's black. I don't really like to put any black coloured food in my mouth. It just feels strange. That's why I prefer to have sweet colours Betsey cupcake and chocolate LV cupcake. I bet these must be an expensive cupcakes.
