Lately, I’m obsessed with

I turn to food when I am happy, sad, relaxed, hormonal, stressed, tired, and so on. Food is good. I do not need to be hungry to eat. It is not the healthiest attitude in the world but it is sure one I believe in. This love of food I inherited from my mother, whoContinue reading “Lately, I’m obsessed with”

I want to relax but plastic gives me anxiety

I watch a couple of cafe vlogs on YouTube for relaxation. One is focused on making hot and cold coffee drinks while the other features gorgeous bread and sandwiches. The preparation of all these nice food entertain me – the sounds, colors, ingredients, and attention to detail are inspiring – but there is one aspectContinue reading “I want to relax but plastic gives me anxiety”

What I eat in a day – healthy or naughty?

I love food. I am like Winnie The Pooh in this regard. If I am not eating it, I am thinking about it. Sharing food also gives me a lot of joy. Today, I thought I would share what I usually eat in a day – just simple homecooked meals from our small kitchen. BreakfastContinue reading “What I eat in a day – healthy or naughty?”

Touring my backyard, literally

Over the weekend, I managed to put in some work in further greening our backyard. Most of it is already teeming with plants but the wrought iron plant structure attached to the back of the tiny house has yet to receive some love. It took three tries until I finally settled on a grouping thatContinue reading “Touring my backyard, literally”

The past two months have been busy at the tiny house though thankfully not stressful. Because of the looser restrictions, we have been able to entertain some guests and it was a fun learning experience. It is only the start but here are some of my realizations following my slew of domestic adventures on howContinue reading “How to cook for people at home and also keep your sanity”

My top 5 houseplants with the prettiest leaves

In my recent plant propagation post, I was replying to The Parmigiana Whisperer when the idea for this new post came. She is right – plants are incredibly pretty and there are ones with stunning leaves. Flowers are great but everyday lovely foliage is even better. Below are my top 5 houseplants with to-die-for leaves!

12 Common houseplants I am currently in love with

I have not done a plants post in a while so what better way to catch up than share some of my favorite plants? There are plants at every corner of our tiny house and I honestly love them all. However, there are some that I just go nuts over every time my eyes landContinue reading “12 Common houseplants I am currently in love with”

It is always tea time at Cafe Domingo + Tiny House

I do not have a dream dinner date but I would be thrilled to get invited to the March Hare’s Tea Party. Or perhaps I should just invite myself like Alice did? I would wear my white knee-length dress with black foliage print and sit perhaps between the Mad Hatter and the narcoleptic Dormouse.

What our cats taught me about love

By now, it is hard to imagine life at the tiny house without Phobos, Deimos, and Fake Deimos. It is every bit their home as much as it is ours. My sister always says the cats decided to adopt us and not the other way around, and I really have nothing to debate that. OurContinue reading “What our cats taught me about love”

How can we thank you enough?

On behalf of the 70 families who received our Christmas food bags last night, we would like to thank everyone who supported our annual community outreach project. You have given these people a meal to share for Christmas, and more importantly, hope that their situation can improve and the assurance that they are not forgotten.
