Inspiration Tuesday...

What can I share to Inspire You?

We all have our ways of inspiring everyone or might someone out there, who, in a way, I can inspire of my travels and adventures. Me and GH love to travel. Just one continent left, Sout America, then we travelled the whole continents.

Can I inspire him and you what the world offer us? Well, those who travel know what I feel and I am feel blessed to visit the wonders of our beautiful world.

Yes... I know, I am not going younger, so I decided to mobilize now that I still can do the things I never done when I was younger. An experience for a lifetime.

Right now, our cottage is not in the best shape (yet) after the bathroom make-over. 

The problem started end of April when we found out that there was a big water damaged on the floorings. Blah... blah... insurance... handymen... blah blah... and at the end, it feels, AM NOT BOTHERED! It took 3 months to put up together, imagine? Until now, the painter who will paint the window pane and the ceiling is no where to contact. So, back to square ONE?
This was already half done. I couldn't find the rotten flooring...what can you say? HOLY MOLLY!
Here is the finished flooring... at least nothing is rotten under.

If you see the b4 photo, behind that wall is the Man's cave (GH TV room) It was damaged too.
Man Cave in it's Highness Make-Over

GH (hubz of mine for 31 years), decided to have a trip to The Philippines, Bintan Island (Indonesia) and of course, Singapore. We we're out for adventure for 5 long weeks. That means... the whole summer in Sweden. He just want to forget the hassel we had.

So, I am sharing partly from Singapore

Me and GH work at one of Sweden's largest bank and we have our branch office in Singapore. The HO in Asia. As I need to chill in The Philippines, GH make an itinerary that the last 2 weeks of our vacation, we will be in Singapore. He had to work for another gigantous release of our bank dealing system. Happy weeks, my pleasure and business trip. Isn't it amazing? I couldn't say "NO". 
Well, we stayed at Fairmont Hotel Singapore. One of the finest hote, 5***** in the country. It was fantastic stay. Our room was in the 26th floor, the highest floor of the hotel. We upgraded to a Penthouse. OMG! I was blowned away. Just the view...

My view from my bed. That is Marina Bay Sands Tower Hotel and overlooking at the whole North side of Singapore. This was taken when the country was in haze. Indonesia's forest was on fire...
This the view, Skyline, left side from Marina Bay Sands Tower Hotel.These 2 our main view from the bed
Dancing Trees are one of our view too. They dances 7.45 every evening. Famous attraction.
At the other side is The Swiss Hotel and if you see the tennis area, just behind that is Raffel's Hotel
This was my best place during my Asian breakfast... 3 restos to choose as we are Presidential guests.
Our Chef always wear a smile, everytime I come and say "Xie-xie"
 We even have our own Room Attendant (what a luxurious life)
Loving the Willow Spa. Looks like, I am alone in this area. Another luxury time in here.

Well, this is all for now. The quick peek of Singaporean life. Who don't love living here? Awww... the problem is, HOT and HUMID.
Till we see again, fellow bloggers.
You all, rocks with your inspiration posts. I love and I will come and visit you.

Thank you, Marty for always hosting. One of the best Linky party in the Blogger World.
GB you.

Late Summer TS On my First TS Summer Break

A very long SUMMER BREAK

Oh yeah! It feels--- it was ages ago, visiting my blog due to so many reasons during summer.

So many stories and photos to share from our Asian Summer Adventure. A wonderful time together with families and friends, old and new.

So, today, I came across some lovelies, while I am fixing our luggage from Asian trip...
Aren't they lovely? They are from Zara HOme purchase in Lissabon, Portugal
Pls. don't mind my runners LoL* I don't have time to iron for now...
I am not sure where I purchase my flatwares...
Can you see, the sun is shining still?
So, I went in a hurry to gather what in hand
I am mixing whatever, I saw...  

Old and new mix together seems work for me. How about you?
These are my beautiful antique English egg holders

Hope to see you again, now I am in my normal life.

God Bless Us All...

Where Are All the Days Gone?

Months and Days went too quickly

Absolutely, fast enough specially when you are enjoying what you're doing, right? I couldn't catch and hang with it. It is a bit shame for me, isn't it? 

Well, I'm here, browsing to your blogs but quickly. It became my lifestyle. Crazy enough, that I browse and read my fave blogs rather than reading horrible news. 

Anyways, as of now, I took a long vacation from work and it is summer break from school. So, I am a stay home wife. No kids, no stress and nothing but to chill. It is a wellness break for my side after all the issues at work. Life is more easier. Less money but more healthier and happier.

I went to a 2 months Trainee program at Sheraton Hotel Stockholm, as I am studying Hotel Management. It was a lot of work and stress, but doing what I love makes me more energetic and all the positiveness in my life, make me more happy. I will be pursuing my last term Trainee in Autumn. I will be assisting the HR Executive and the Training and Development Manager. I am into International Relations and personnel is my cup of coffee. So, I wish to share my knowledge and help my mentors. Cool thing, though my expertise is more on financial sector.

In contrary, life in DaBox is still on the top. We have a water damage in the bathroom and till now, our handymen are still struggling to finish. They are almost there. Keep your fingers cross. These men are not quick, as I want them to.

For now...
Here is some of Mix-mix days when I was in hibernation...
GH just upgrade my planter's corner with charcoal grill is hiding , LoL*
We have a huge grill in the open porch
This was our setting the day before our Swedish Midsummer.
Nothing special, really? I am just having a funtime 
Then, here comes the day most busiest day in Sweden. Midsummer day is their holy day. Ha ha
Due to Brexit, hubby don't have time to make our own Maypole. He been working the whole night. So, I did not bother either. I just gathered some flowers as the spirit of Summer.
Prepared my own Tuna Sandwich Cake with mix toppings. This is very famous in food in Scandinavia. It is quick and simple. So, tasty too. Very Scandinavian style.
We celebrated our midsummer just the 2 of us. Quiet and we love it. We seems we enjoyed too.
I managed to baked my own Midsummer strawberry and lemoncurd cake.
The Swedish strawberries was absolutely sweet but, it cost like gold this day.
I served Halo-halo, a very traditional Filipino dessert. YUMMY...
YES! Happy indeed! It's SUMMER Time. Life is more easier. 
Daughter and dear BF came to visit this weekend. Me, LOVE
As a homemaker, I also managed to make a rhubarb syrup.
 Just leave and boil for awhile and this can be a good drink...
Here they are... 4 liter of rhubarb syrup. 100% homemade and free from any unhealthy stuffs.

As I said, Summer life is more easier. No heavy jacket nor heavy snowboots. But that's another lifestyle, right? As of now, wishing everyone a very enjoyable Summer with lots of sun, beaches, foodies, family gatherings and FUNTIME...

God Bless Us All
Thank You Susan for the party...
