  1. this video is giving my google reader a soundtrack automatically. sounds so eerie and took me a while to figure out which it was.

  2. Hi Tina,

    The floating mug was especially cool. I suppose it is the novelty and the creativity of the design.

    Interestingly, I have a neighbour who also has a giant rubber swimming pool in their backyard for the kids. It has been there almost ever since they moved in a year or so ago. The water is always filled and changed and the young kids can be seen e.joying themselves splashing around. This is understandable since Singapore is so hot and humid. It is a great way for kids to grow up haha!

    Oh wow…some of the pictures of the Swiss bunkers are amazing! I’m a huge history buff so I enjoy looking at the bunkers haha! I love the camoflage for some of them. You won’t notice the bunkers unless you were looking or aware of their existence. Brilliant! Pictures 11, 16 and 18 are my favourites!

    Thanks for sharing your great links! I certainly enjoyed them! :D

  3. Man, that is one depressing top ten book list.

  4. Hello,

    Those links are great, thank you! Could you however ensure that when you click on a link it opens a new tab/browser as currently you go on a new page, flick through photos for example and end up having to click on the back page browser button in order to get back to your main page.



  5. Great collection of links. Love the list of WP plugins, it definitely includes some good ones… and of course the ‘Most Charming Bookends” from Anthropologie are hard not to want.

  6. Aaaaaaaarrrgh! An auto-playing video!
