Home Sweet Home

One of the things I loved about living with my parents prior to getting hitched was the huge space and lawn our home boasts. Seriously, this has got to be the biggest garden space I've seen around the neighbourhood. I bet my cats would have a field day if I were to let them loose in the garden. I'll let you take a peek of course, to prove my point!

See the expansive space? It's so huge that even the gardener has a hard time mowing the grass. Not to mention watering all the plants and flowers blooming in the garden. I didn't get a chance to take pictures of my mom's flower garden; it started to rain immediately after snapping these shots but believe me when I say that this huge garden needs more than just potted plants and pretty shrubs to keep it looking great. Smiley

Anyway I plan to go shopping with my mom tomorrow and I'm going to suggest
window flower boxes or window boxes planters for all the windows at home! Actually, that's the reason I woke up "early "today; need to complete all pending jobs so I can happily spend tomorrow with my parents!

I think window planters are just awesome and I would love waking up to fresh beautiful flowers right outside my window. Can you imagine the sweet smell of roses wafting into your room every time you open the window? So yeah, even though I no longer live with my parents, I would love to have pretty garden window boxes greet my arrival
whenever I visit! What do you think? Smiley

Ane,  July 08, 2010 7:35 PM

I don't like living in a big house Marzie, I dream of living in a small condo.. :-P I love our home now cause Lucas and Chakai can play outside the garden and experience nature, but it is a killer to clean, and we don't have helpers!

Mariuca,  July 08, 2010 7:35 PM

=-O =-O :-[ :-[ :-[ LOL it's okay! I will come see later after u update ha ha! *DONT_KNOW* *DONT_KNOW*

One huge-ass lawn we have here Ane lol! Lemme see urs!!! *DONT_KNOW* *DONT_KNOW* 8-) 8-) 8-)

Ane,  July 08, 2010 7:37 PM

I don't garden, I don't have a green thumb, and once I tried but the plants literally died because I over did it.. :-P We hire our neighbors gardener when the grass needs to be mowed and the plants need weeding, which we do like 5-6 times a year only, and mostly during the rainy season only because that's when weeds and the grass grow.. :-D

Mariuca,  July 08, 2010 7:38 PM

I know Ane! For my parents it's okay cause they have a maid and what not to help keep the huge house spic and span at all times, dat's why I too prefer living in a smaller condo... but I want to look for a new place with a garden... hopefully a condo too... :-$ :-$ :-$ :-$

Ane,  July 08, 2010 7:38 PM

In as much as I would love to trade our house for a cozy condo, which is easier to clean, B likes to live in a house, so tough luck for me.. :-D

Ane,  July 08, 2010 7:39 PM

Yay I made it! t took forever to load your page cause I have like 20 tabs open at the same time but it's a good thing I made it.. :-D

Mariuca,  July 08, 2010 7:40 PM

Woot! And I think u made the MM one too, I haven checked and updated the older chops, will do so tonight, thanks sweetie! :-D :-D :-D

Mariuca,  July 08, 2010 7:42 PM

Having a huge garden will def require outside help to keep things pretty! The only thing I've ever planted was ...hmmm.. watermelon and some chillies hehehe! And they both bore fruits so I was pleased... and then they died and they never bothered planting again lol.... =-X =-X :* :* :*

Mariuca,  July 08, 2010 7:43 PM

Condo-living can be super awesome and I am in the market for a new one, hopefully can find a good one within our budget.... :-$ :-$ :-$ *DONT_KNOW* *DONT_KNOW*

Feron,  July 09, 2010 11:53 AM

Hello Marzie... it's been a long time! You're right you really have to re-landscape the garden area of your mom's home.

Nice idea to have some flowery plants even in window boxes.

Have a nice weekend! :) ;) :)

Incik RestNrilekS,  July 10, 2010 8:15 PM

Olla Marzie..

aduihhh penat tapi kenyang. Baru lepas makan burger warong "double spesel with cheese" Lebih kurang macam versi BIG MAC la tapi versi Burger Malaysia. Haa makan, meleleh cheese, kalah MC.D hahaha

Haa dah lepas makan, ni kalau kerjakan laman rumah you, sure terbakar kalori. Besarnya Lamannnnnn =-O
Aiyoooooo tuuu rumah ke palace =-O

Can do mini gather-gather, sambil to benji, phoebe, chubs, awan, heejerah all can tukar gossip somemore and umpat about us.. ahaks ahaks

Happy saturday.. penat ni baru balik extra work. so this week saturday, sunday and monday ada kerja sket.. hehehehe :-D :-D :-D

foongpc,  July 10, 2010 10:01 PM

Wah! So big the house! You come from a rich family ah?

foongpc,  July 10, 2010 10:08 PM

I also like house with big big garden! : )

foongpc,  July 10, 2010 10:09 PM

That's why I prefer landed properties compared to condos! But I don't like gardening so someone has to do all those gardening for me! Haha

Shemah,  July 10, 2010 11:28 PM

I saw a landed property here in USJ with a modest lawn but pretty big.. semi-D.. hehehe angan2 lah konon nak beli. Tup tup 1.7 million.. so gotta wait a little bit longer lahh.. tunggu dah jutawan gitu! LMAO!

Because right now, the prices of condos pun dah juta2 might as well get landed.. especially a yard that my children can run round and round on.. LOL! :D But then, if I got the chance, I don't mind getting myself a duplex kat Matahari @ Mont Kiara.. hahahahahaha.. angan2 mat jenin..

But definitely lah got pros and cons of living in any type of property.. but for long term living.. kan best landed, macam ur parents house. At least family can get together buat kenduri everything.. all there. With tons of space..

Here's to hoping we get our dream homes! :D

ayie,  July 11, 2010 3:32 PM
