Garage Door

The three floor apartment we’re living at has  two garage space, one at the front and the other one in the left side.  It is just right because most of the families here in Korea has their own cars, two or more.   I think our landlord need a roof and garage door on the left side garage because when it is snowing the garage is full of frost, the other night I saw his son (if I am not mistaken) covering his car with cartoon boxes so the windshield will be snow free.

I believed installing roof and garage door will free the car from snow and the landlord in shoveling the pile of snow. It will also stop some of the school kids to play ball games when the cars are not around.  Like what happened one fine day  where I am busy in front of my computer when I heard some kids shouting and kicking a ball outside, I didn’t  mind them because I thought it is normal but when I went to the bathroom and turn on the light and ventilation I can hear them moving  away from the garage silently, it seems they thought nobody is around and they can play freely so when they hear someone is around they sneak out like thieves.

Interior Design at Home

I believed interior designing is a talent and a multifaceted profession that includes conceptual development, liaising with the stakeholders of a project and the management and execution of the design. It is not easy as what other thinks, it requires a lot of planning, decision making and time management.

I have no talent in actual interior designing because as what I have said I am kind of packrat where everything is important to me, everything has value in short. So when ever we have new furniture at home I just display or put them in a place where I think they will look good, I don’t consider balancing anymore. As long as there’s space there’s a usage for it.

Well at least even though I  have no talent in actual interior designing I have a little talent in virtual interior designing, how do your like my living room (header)?

Water Well Drilling

When I am still a kid fetching water in the pump is my everyday task. I have to make sure that all the plastic containers at home is full of water or else my mother will scold me. Time came a little progress  occurred in our community, using  water pump is  not on demand anymore. Fetching water became easier by the use of water system,  most houses has their own water pipes now but the water is not good for drinking just for washing, bathing and daily usage.

Not all families are covered by the water system because there are some houses which happened to be far from the main road where the pipes are running.  Some of this houses still uses water pump for their water supply and those people who happens living in the valley uses water well especially when they have vegetable garden to water everyday. Water well drilling is common when the supply of water is not abundant and you are living in urban area like us.

Window Boxes

As we have no space/garden  to cultivate here in our apartment I have told  my husband about my idea and that is planting a plant into plant box which is a good idea if there’s no garage in front of our apartment building but the mere fact that  there’s a garage it is not a good idea at all. So there’s no way we can grow flowers or few vegetables in a plant box because without sunlight they will die.

Our last option to bring harmony and have green living things in our apartment is to buy and install window boxes in our balcony. There are some affordable  and custom made window boxes that last a lifetime, most of them are made from no rot cellular PVC called VERSATEX , that gives the planters a matte finish which scatters light rather than reflecting it and the end result is a planter that looks and feels like a wood rather than a plastic.

It  seems a good idea isn’t it? Well before we decide to have one we should ask permission to our landlord first especially he is keeping his bike and other cleaning tools at the the back side of the apartment.
