Life is Better with Hope

Lifestyle, Musings, Personal By January 7, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Now blessed with a lovely home, I struggle to keep everything neat and organised. Pinterest has been such a great help to me these past months – assisting me in designing the flat for renovations; choosing themes and colour palettes; decorating, and now organising. I now have a good home and my primary job is to be a good homemaker.

I make weekly meal plans and grocery lists. We strive to eat according to season, and eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables from local grocers that put up stalls every morning at the square near our home. I try to live by my goal of eating natural and organic, being environmental-friendly by bringing my own biodegradable and reusable plastic bags and paper bags, and segregate our trash accordingly. We live a minimalist lifestyle by only buying what we need. This applies to personal care and even clothing. Years ago, I decided to clean out my closet. It took four years of slowly getting rid of things I did not actually like or need. Some time ago I also realised that being an environmentalist also went hand in hand with being a minimalist, so I decided to invest on good quality and expensive clothing, and made the effort of keeping and following the washing instructions to best preserve them. I was Kondo-ing even before the word Kondo came out. I am a strange person and maybe I am becoming more and more strange as years go by.

“Today is World Oceans Day!

The planet’s oceans and coasts are home to an incredible array of life – and are vital to human health, livelihoods, and cultures. But damaging and unsustainable human activities are taking their toll on marine habitats and marine species around the world.

WWF works toward a future in which well-managed oceans and coasts are resilient, full of life, and capable of supporting sustainable development.
