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…

Oil Spills: Chen’s Must Have Oils

The first time I heard about Young Living, I really had no idea what it was all about. I’ve known about essential oils but associated it with rustic, old ways of healing or treating a malaise. So yes, I kinda dismissed it as soon as I heard about it…until I’ve read posts from my good…
