DIY Week

Last week ain’t so good with a debacle in the office. My fault entirely and so I threw myself into some DIY projects to get a positive flow going. Here are some of the projects I did. After getting to visit Dai Quang Minh in District 5 here in Ho Chi Minh City, I set…

Snug as a bug

I have trouble keeping both my rowdy boys calmed down in the evenings to get some sleep. Who am I kidding? I have trouble falling asleep myself. Lucky are those who have this amazing ability to fall asleep whenever their heads hit the pillow — like my husband. So in the evenings, before we all…
