Garden Features You Can Have Now The Kids Are Grown-Up

When you have little ones, your first priority is to make sure your humble abode is child-friendly. Therefore, there are a lot of features parents have to go without for their house as it’s not practical with little ones. So when your kids grow up, it gives you the opportunity to invest in features that you have had to live without. In fact, in terms of your garden, here are some features you can have now the kids are grown up.

Outdoor cooking equipment

It’s always a challenge cooking outside when you have little ones to look after. At the end of the day, you take your eye off them for a minute, and they could end up burning themselves on the BBQ. Therefore, a lot of parents avoid cooking outside when they have little ones. So now your kids are grown up, it’s time to take the opportunity to get some outdoor cooking equipment. After all, nothing beats cooking some meat and vegetables on the grill. It might be that you decide to get a large gas or charcoal BBQ for your garden. After all, this will be perfect in the summer months. Or you might even get a fully stocked outdoor kitchen so that you have everything you need to whip up some meals. In fact, you can look on http://www.housebeautiful.com/room-decorating/kitchens/g9/outdoor-kitchen-design-ideas-0511/ for some outdoor kitchen ideas that you will love.


A beautiful garden pond

It’s always a challenge to have a pond in your garden if you have little ones. After all, you need to ensure they don’t get too close as you don’t want them to be at risk of drowning. Therefore, it often means you have to go without a pond in the garden. Now that your kids are all grown up, it’s time to get a beautiful garden pond. After all, you can now have one of a significant size in your garden. And it’s a stunning feature which will bring character to your yard. Therefore, look at the variety of ponds to find one which will be great in your garden. And remember to get the tools to ensure it stays in good condition. After all, you want a clear pond which will keep your fish healthy. Therefore, look on sites like http://www.swelluk.com/pond/pond-pumps-62.html to find the tools you need for your pond. And once it’s all set-up, you can find some beautiful fish!

A hot tub

Of course, you can install a hot tub in your yard when you have little ones. But it’s always a hazard when you have kids around. After all, they could fall in while you are not around and hurt themselves. And if the bubbles are going, they could be at risk of drowning. Therefore, now is the perfect time to add the relaxing feature to your yard. If the sun comes out, it can be a great way to spend an evening with your other half. It’s also perfect for when guests come over; they will be desperate to have a go in the tub!


And now you can grow as many vegetables as you like. After all, you don’t have to worry about little ones taking a bite of something that’s only half formed!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO...

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
