Gardening at Home

This is what I missed here. I can’t even plant a single plant unlike when I am still in Philippines I have a small backyard garden with string beans, ladies finger, sweet potato and eggplant. I cultivated them and do weeding when I have nothing else to do.

Photo not Mine

The picture above is not mine, my classmate’s seedlings on their green house. It seems she is having a lot of fun, at least she won’t missed the things she always do in our hometown, yeah she just migrated in the US month ago.

Window Curtains

We’re not able to sleep well last night. It is too bright inside our room, the garage light is on and our neighbor’s light is also on all night until morning, dunno what are they doing. We already plan to buy window blinds for our window but thinking that the landlord will not like it if we put hole or tear his wallpaper it stop us from buying it.

Last night I finalized  a plan. I am going to bring curtains here in our apartment once I went home in the Philippines, we have old curtains at home that can be used here. I am just going to buy hangers that can be stick to the wooden frame of our window instead of using concrete nails in our wall.

Bamboo Blinds and Shades

One of our neighbor in the Philippines built their house in the middle of the fields, it looks  like a rest house which looks very refreshing during summer.  Most of the materials they used are bamboo shoots, coconut leaves and lumber. It is a two story house  with stairs to the second floor and  what make their house more attractive is their beautiful  flower garden on their backyard.  The only problem is too much light during day time because it is built in an open place, the curtains are not enough when it is windy, I think they should use bamboo shade on their window.  There are bamboo shades or commonly called bamboo blinds that are cheap and affordable that will match their entire decoration.

Bleach for Vegetables and Fruits

The other day I went to the market again this time to buy kimchi for my stew. We just arrived home  from shopping our daily needs when I had a decision to cook my chicken stew  but  I found out my husband ate some of the kimchi, in short it is not enough anymore to cook my stew.

Aside from kimchi I decided to buy bleach, the bleach I have bought year ago is already empty. I hop to another supermarket to another looking for the same brand but I still end buying another brand.

I wonder what is on this bleach why it washes vegetables, fruits and fish. I wish I can read Korean huh?  Most of the bleach in the supermarket is also applicable to the images on this brand. Anyway bleach is commonly use to disinfect and clean the house,  the kitchen, bathroom and of course to remove stain on white clothes and to use it on food is new to me.
