How to block games in Facebook

  1. When you see notification or anyone sharing any games, just hover over to the top right hand corner and click the the downward arrow 
  2. Select HIDE ALL FROM ______ (whatever games you want to block)
  3. You will get a notification that you won't see that game anymore.
Sometimes we get notification and invitation from our friends. It doesn't mean that they sent it to you, the games auto sent it themselves. So if you don't wanna get any notification of games, you can do this without "unfriending" your annoying friend. :D

Organizing tips passed on to next generation

I have been doing this to my exercise books since I was in primary school. I find that it's a "no brainer method" for packing school bag and also it's faster for me to get the books out from my school bag without moving from my chair.

 Yes, they say lazy ppl are very creative. I am one of those. I have passed this organizing technique to my eldest since last year cos he came back with black knees everyday and when I asked him why, he replied "because I have to kneel on the floor to find books in my bag". This year he planned what colour for which subject. Noticed that the reddish pink one is smaller compared to others. That's because... *whisper* that particular teacher is more fierce so we don't wanna make it so obvious that we are lazy. He he he he

DIY: Tape organizer

This was one of my Postponed DIY. Finally have the time to do it. 

Things you need:
  1. 2 thumbtacks
  2. PVC pipe(I  got mine from the plastic book wrapper roll- Wah they actually use PVC now instead of paper!) 
  3. 2 PET bottle cap

Cut one part the bottle cap just enough for the PVC pipe to pass through

Use a thumbtack and press the PET bottle to the side of the bookshelf/rack. Then measure the PVC pipe, just long enough to slide through the opening of te PET cap.

Tadaa! Now you can hang and organize your tapes. No more searching hi and low for it when you need it.

You can save space by hanging it high and placing other stationaries at the bottom.

Yay! Another DIY mission accomplish before year end! Happy New Year! 

Video: Sunflower Day To Day

Finally after many round of trying to plant sunflower, I did it! From 5 seeds, 2 germinated and finally one made it with many sunflowers now. Been taking pics of the sunflowers everyday since it started to bloom till the day it withered. At first the sunflower seeds rot cos of the rain but I manage to harvest seeds from the 2nd flower. It' s just amazing to see it change everyday, at least for a crazy gardener like me.

Simple watering system for your garden

One thing that really makes me worry is not able to water my plants when I'm out, especially when I travel. So after some trial and error, finally I'm able to construct a simple watering system for my mini veg garden. You need a watering timer like this.

It's about rm120-rm150.
P/S: it comes with a cover, to block water from going in. Remember to close the cover otherwise your timer will be soaked in water and it's a total lost.

And you need a few other tools, which I will mention in the video.
I did this for my gardening page right before i left for my Sydney trip.

There are many places that you can buy the tools, some imported so its more expensive and if you're like me who likes to save $ you can try buying from Formeniaga. I heard they're having year end sale now.

Okay some ppl asked me why not just install the 360degree sprinkler that we use for grass. You can use that, however I have a few reasons:
1. you only water the pots that you want to water. No water wastage and you don't encourage weeds growth.
2. some plants like pumpkin leaves, the leaves will have powdery mildew if the leaves touches water when it's hot. So watering the soil is better.

I hope you find the infos and video here useful.
Happy Gardening!
