DIY Macrame Wall Hanging Decor

So, if you remember, I did a bedroom make over a few weeks ago; but that wasn’t fully completed yet and I’ve only done one part of my room (check this post for the bedroom make over: Beach-Themed Tiny Bedroom Quarantine Makeover). I don’t have the luxury to do it in one go for time and budget constraints. As much as possible I didn’t want to spend so much with the “renovation”, so I did a couple of DIYs for this makeover project, one is the DIY Hand-Painted Quote Canvas Art. I also mentioned in my room makeover blog post that I’m thinking of having a macramé wall hanging décor to put on the other wall so it wont look so plain. 

I looked up some macramé on online shops but didn’t find something that I super like and the size that I want will cost me a lot. So instead, I decided to create my own macramé wall hanging décor. Back in high school, I learned to do macramé for a homeroom class project. I can remember what year I was at that time, but I clearly reckon we created macramé hanging plant pot holder.

How To Renovate A Period Property

Period properties can be incredibly attractive, they are often beautiful to look at, and the sense of history that you feel as you walk through them is something that you just can’t find in a more modern home. A lot of people also tend to go for period properties because older homes often have more space around them and are perceived to have a more solid construction.

The only downside with a period property, of course, is that they were built in a time before insulation and other modern building techniques, so it can be more challenging to keep them warm and dry while still maintaining the aesthetic that you are hoping for.

Jus and Jerry's - Gourmet Chinese Food

It’s not breaking news or a surprise that Chinese cuisine has a great influence on Filipino food; after all the interaction between China and the Philippines started over a thousand years ago. Filipino cuisine has so many Chinese inspired dishes and that there are so many Chinese food that are “Filipinized” or made to taste that is suitable for the Filipino palate.

For me personally, one of my comfort food is gourmet Chinese dishes. That’s why even if I live on the far  East side of Metro Manila, there are times I brave the traffic (pre-pandemic) just to go to Chinatown a couple of times in a year. Dumplings and smokey stir-fried Wok-cooked dishes comforts my soul and taste buds

AICE, the affordable ice cream brand that originated from Singapore, has recently launched its newest flavor Milk & Eggs in an exclusive online event with food, lifestyle bloggers and influencers.

Gang Gang Boneless Fried Chicken: with REAL TASTE - not just the sauce!

I can’t count how many times my family cooked a chicken dish during the lockdown. Sometimes we even repeat a recipe in a week. But have gotten sick of eating chicken over and over again? Never! But I would love to try and eat something new; I mean like new chicken dishes. Got my wish granted faster than I expected. 

From the same brains and talents behind one of Tomas Morato’s hippest places to dine: Boa Kitchen + Socials, comes Gang Gang Boneless Fried Chicken. I’m not sure where they got the name  of their newest venture but for some reason, I thought about Psy’s song Oppa Gangnam Style. Well, there’s a connect don’t worry LOL.
