early spring special

New York weather has been crazy lately. I thought I created this mixed of hot and cold spicy BBQ chicken wings and shrimps over the salad, very refreshing I guess. Actually I deep fried both chicken wings and shrimps and dipped them to my homemade hot sauce which is the combination of fresh tomatos,garlic,ginger,celery,union and hot tobacos.

it's all about sexy

Being with a style you love, choose the kind of chair that makes you feel comfortable pick the right fabric and the wood finish that works best for you. Give the chair a completed look, select trims, nailhead and professional detailing.

Things we love

I know I was born into the design lifestyle with a strong visual inclination. I always buy stuffs that I love and you should too. Usually I know exactly what I was looking for while browsing and I have a good idea of where they are going in my home and once I got a taste of it, I wanted more and I began to entertain ideas about finishing things in my house... but as you know designers like us never finish with our own home design.

Before & After



Chilis fever

I decided to try my own chili out of the blue, not sure why. Went to Walmart picked some ingredients and with my own special touch recipe, it came out good.

not just a lamp shade anymore

If you think you have the ugliest or old lamp shades, they are probably ugly and old and need to throw them away, pick the right design and refresh the look. Sometimes less expensive shade can light up your room.

2nd re-organized

After that 1st project done posted back April 14, I thought why not carry on with the 2nd closet while summer still around.
