World Cup Craze

Well not exactly but KS and I have been watching the World Cup since the first match. We don't watch every single game but the ones we support and sometimes place small bets on for the fun of it. And so far I am still in the black. :)

Anyway, KS and I (or rather more me than him) are big on recycling. Well we get these blue plastic bags outside our house every fortnightly and there's no easier way (or excuses not to) to recycle with all the convenience. So I bought these 2 bins from Ikea and line them with the blue bags (now I get 2 instead of the usual 1 coz we recycle lots of stuff) and I got the stickers "Paper" and "Plastic" from Daiso (I don't see them anymore, I bought them a while back). I throw newspapers, flyers, credit card inserts, etc. into the "Paper" bin and drink bottles, detergent bottles, shampoo/shower bottles, etc. into the "Plastic" bin. Join me in being environmentally friendly and save the earth especially if you receive these recycling bags at your door steps too.

Some purchases from my recent UK trip:

Photography magazines which are usually more expensive here with the shipping charges.

A sewing book I bought at a steal - £2.99 which is around S$6+.

No I didn't buy the fabric from UK. Recently, I made a trip to Chinatown coz I was craving for some Koi milk tea and bought these! Not sure what I am going to do with them, kinda bought it on an impulse...hmmm...I need more storage!

3 things that made me smile:
  1. Won some $ from the World Cup games
  2. Came home today with dinner on the table (bought by KS) and cupcakes for dessert from T
  3. The neighbour's little girl who rushed out to say "goodbye" to me when she heard me unlocking the padlock.
Have a great week ahead!

Hehe I drew inspiration from those bins! I like how the Australians are big on recycling and how people bring their own shopping bags to the supermarkets. I want to do my bit to save the earth and influence the people around me. :)
