Create a Magical, Fairytale Garden for Your Home

Finding inspiration for your garden can be tricky. You want it to be usable, while also feeling creative. If you have kids, or you just want to tap into your childish side, taking inspiration from fairytales and magic is a great idea. Many of us go looking for fairies or gnomes in the garden when we're little, so why not bring them into your home? You can create a magical land in your own backyard with some fun inspiration from fairy tales, legends and mythical beasts. It could be fun for both children and adults, and an interesting way to design your garden.

Build a Fantastical Structure

A fun place where the kids can hide and even adults might be able to squeeze in can give your garden a standout feature. One idea is to build a treehouse, which could be anything from a castle to a pirate ship. If you have a suitable tree or two, you could create an incredibly fun space where the kids can explore and play. A treehouse isn't the only option though. How about a little hobbit hole that provides a comfortable den to relax in? Or perhaps a castle or playhouse that stands on its own. Even a gazebo or a little cabin or shed could be made to look like a fairytale location.


Light It Up

The right lights can do an awful lot for your fairytale garden. They can give your garden a magical quality, so it's not just dark at night. You could start with something simple, like a string of solar-powered lights through a tree or bush. But if you want to do something more sophisticated, a company like Allen Outdoor Solutions can help with permanent outdoor lighting. As well as creating a magical garden that you can use once the sun has gone down, you can improve the security of your home and make your garden safer.

Create a Mini World

If you have ever searched for fairies at the bottom of the garden, creating a mini world in your backyard is a fun idea. You can add tiny features that make it look like miniature creatures are living around your home. For an easy, readymade way to do it, you can use doll's house furniture or other miniatures. It's also easy to find mini plant pots or small plants, as well as use bird houses. If you're particularly crafty, you can make your own items too.

Introduce Fairytale Creatures

You might just stick to having some fairytale homes, but you can also dot some magical creatures around your garden. If you feel like a lot of the fairy or gnome ornaments you usually get are a bit cheesy, have a look around to see what else you can find. While some things might look a bit cheap for the look you want, others will help to give your garden a fun but sophisticated look.


Create a fairytale garden for your home if you want a fun space that you can enjoy every day. Adults and children alike can benefit from a creative outdoor space.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
