8 Stitch Lil Sew Portable Sewing Machine

I recently purchased this very cute 8 Stitch Lil Sew Portable Sewing Machine though Lazada.  I saw this on sale and I took advantage of the huge discount and the good reviews.  I long wanted to have a sewing machine because one of my frustrations is to be able to sew even simple projects for our home.  You know, simple stuff like pillow cases, hanging organizers, ribbons and other teeny weeny stuff for the kitchen. :)

This item was delivered very fast, around 2 to 3 days after I've placed my order online.  However, I need to request for a replacement since the item did not in complete package.  The foot pedal was not included in the box.  I've tested the machine though and it works perfectly fine.  In fact, I am already very excited to try sewing my shih-tzu's shirts but I have to patiently wait for the replacement unit. Alas after almost 2 weeks of waiting, I've finally received the replacement unit, now in complete package.  I've tried using it on the same day and wow in less than an hour, I was able to sew 2 cute shirts for my baby shih-tzu.  The machine works fine and I think it would be good for my other craft projects. I'm really really excited to do more things with this portable sewing machine and I would be blogging about my finished products here, of course.  Hope my machine would last long. :)

Till my next project!

My Favorite Beef Broccoli

I love broccoli and every time I go to SM Supermarket, I never fail to buy a head of broccoli.  I used to cook this with beef.  Aside from the fact that this is a super healthy food, the dish is so easy to prepare and budget friendly as well.  A plate of Beef Broccoli normally costs me a little over a hundred pesos and it would be good for two persons already.  My secret to this delicious dish is the oyster sauce and fried garlic.  Both really add a great flavor to my dish so it's really super yummy.

My daughter who never eat vegetables would always try this dish, so I make it a point to cook this once in a while to have her eat veggies. 

Ingredients are so simple:

about 300 grams of beef strips
1 head of Broccoli
1 clove of garlic
1 medium sized red onion
two table spoons of soy sauce
1/4 cup oyster sauce
1 tbsp of sugar
onion leeks (optional)


1.) Heat oil on pan, then fry the beef strips on medium heat.
2.) Saute garlic and onion. Set aside some fried garlic for toppings 
3.) Add two tablespoons of soy sauce and mix well.
4.) Add the sliced Broccoli, then add the sugar and oyster sauce.
5.) Cook over low heat and finally top with onion leeks and fried garlic.
6.) Serve with hot rice.
Bon Appetit!

Modern Pergola Designs

Next to gardens, I am attracted to patios especially the ones with modern pergola designs.  Some pergolas I've seen are with roof and ceiling but some are open to get natural light and air but given the weather condition in the Philippines which is quite unpredictable and sometimes terrible, open pergolas are already out of my options.   

Just love these modern pergola designs I've seen online:

A pergola shade is definitely a practical solution for every outdoor space.  A presence of this in your outdoor rooms make your outdoor living space more inviting, relaxing and provides you and your guests with a bit of privacy.  Depending on how nice you built your outdoor rooms with these attractive pergola designs will dictate how much time you are going to spend outdoors.

I always love to stay outdoors. Getting natural light and air plus a view of nature is something that relaxes me most of the time.  There are lots of pergola designs to choose from and I think this will be a good addition to your already exciting patios or outdoor rooms.

Small Side Yard Ideas

I am planning to work on some improvements for my small side yard starting next month. Because of this, I am on a look out for some ideas online.  I already have a basic plan of how should I go about with this project but since the amount of space is indeed a challenge, I guess, I should be thinking about how to incorporate outdoor furniture without making the place crowded.  I also like to add some plants where possible.  Having all these in one small side space seemed to be impossible but I'm sure that this can be done with the proper lay out and advance planning.

Love these design ideas below:

I am just so excited to have this thing started.  This could be an additional place at home to entertain visitors and I want to give them a fresh look after this project. :)

Preparing Your Home For Christmas

Time flies so fast, we are already on the "ber"months, and before we knew it, it's going to be Christmas time again.  There are so many things that excite me about Christmas and one of which is preparing your home for the most special season of the year.  How do we do this of course depends on our budget.  We could decorate our homes with lavish Christmas decors, make DIY projects so you could decorate your homes on a budget or if you don't have enough time to do this and you are on a tight budget as well, the best option is to look for SDOTD.  I always make sure that I go for smart purchases, thus I never practice impulse shopping.  Waiting for the right timing will make your money go along way.  For instance, you could look for crazy deals that could give you your money's worth.  Some shops open this opportunity once in a while, so whether you are saving for gifts or for home decors this coming Christmas season, you have to keep yourself informed on this once in a season opportunity.  

Well, of course if you are into arts and crafts, don't forget that you could make use of your skills as well to prepare your home for Christmas.  Making your own decors or home made gifts will surely be a hit this coming holiday season.
