How many of you so into the beach and island life-style, that you want to own one, even at least for just a week period of time if it is unaffordable to own for a lifetime period?


Spending most of your days with serene endless blue sea and warm white sands will surely sounds good, especially if you are looking to be secluded and get that private life going. Well there’s a whole area on private island whether to own one or to rent one.

I came accross this island called Royal Davui, Fiji.
It is our for rent from US$7,200/week


well if it is still within your affordable one, might consider to hold a private event, such as wedding or special gathering in private island, how cool would that be?


not all rent fees are that high there are some that are under $500/wk
check it out here. (I saw something like $89/wk for some island in philiphines)

Here’s my favorite one $4,900/wk for Huvafen Fushi Island Resort, Maldives, Asia. All pictures here:

Private dining, can someone please explain to me what’s this effect? is it a fiber optic pool lighting or what? It’s so romantic.

Well isn’t it a world class underwater spa? it’s where you can get that relaxation massage with the true blue ambiance surrounding you. It’s kinda of reminds me of that Ithaa Hilton Maldives Underwater restaurant.

there are more islands listings from all over the world’s areas, if interested check it out for yourself here all pictures and sources are from privateislandsonline.com.


Improv Everywhere: Human Mirror Mission

Don’t get bored – check out Improv Everywhere’s scenes of chaos and joy especially this one: Human Mirror Mission.

Entertain your-self with their experiement, watch this video:

The idea for Improv Everywhere here is to create human mirror effect by filling up a subway train with identical twins. here’s a little description of their mission taken from improveverywhere.com:

We would get on the 6 train at the start of the line at Brooklyn Bridge and the twins would sit on either side of the car, directly across from their sibling. Once in place, their job would be to mirror each other as closely as possible. If one scratches his head, so should the other. If anyone asked them what was going on, they should claim not to notice anything unusual and not to even be able to see their sibling.

I think it is just so cool, what a thoughtful thing to do and experiement with.

2645111826 2187433783

There are some people in the train/subway that are noticing they’re standing among rows of identical twins. How amazing would that be to get that very first-hand experience surrounded by more than 15 couples (30 identical twins)?

some of the people reactions are just hillarious, cuz the twins acted their parts too, within the role and props that they’re given. find out more pictures, more fun comments from: Improv Everywhere – the source that causes scenes of chaos and joy to happen in public places more specifically in New York I guess, since it’s where the group is based at.

unusual items – product of human’s invention

Posted by editor On August - 25 - 2008

This dog peek-a-boo thing is kinda cute, right?

Above is a very interesting glass holder tray

A spider resemblance for a crawling reading wall-lamp, won’t you agree that this is quite a cool design for wall-sconce lamp?

Titanic lamp? sinking lamp?


I would want this ladder too for its cool decorative look, but it doesn’t look too assuring though if one can survive standing long enough in that paper-thick ladder.




Finally interesting kitchen gadgets: a cookie mug, a transparent toaster and a banana protector.
I am loving the transparent toaster, would like to get one of those.

These puppies are so adorable, I found them in puppiesforsalebynet.com while checking around for tea cup sizes pet. I spent hours looking into this site, amazed by most of the pictures of these little adorable creatures. Well too bad they’re only pictures, I kind of question if this tiny tea cup will actually ever exist as an adult size tea cup creatures any how this site called superstarpuppies.com give a good measuring guides and discussions regarding the issue.

I think puppiesforsalebynet.com is an amazing place if you’re looking for getting a tiny-size or tea cup sizes doggy (they have other breed not just yorkies) but the bad part is their price which is ranging from couple thousands to around five thousands for each, extremely pricey…
and just incase you are wondering to take a look at different place try to check it here.

Well not too long ago I discover a boutique resort rests in Bali by the name of UBUD HANGING GARDEN. Well since the name has a special attachment to me personally, I decided to hit this place for a pre honeymoon get-away. To my suprised, it is such an amazing spot to be, I have a high recomendation for this boutique hotel.

At that time it is just 6 months after opening, so it’s fairly new and other than the access road to reach this hidden treasure I have no other complain. The access road was still a dirt road at that time, but now it’s a fully paved/asphalt road.

Here’re some of the resort’s pictures:

Yes you need that heated pool to enjoy the stary clear night and the view of the green foresty valley with the beautifully crafted Hindu temple accross (note: you can only see the temple clearly if you get the panoramic deluxe pool villa)

I really do enjoy their open air bathroom, btw the temperature is about 29 degree celcius all year round, so it wouldn’t be a problem to take an open shower.

When I look at MirrorMedia.com and Séura, Inc. producing this cool gadget, I think it’s such a sweet invention to share with, especially if you are an interior design fan, or just a design fan like myself!

It’s basically an LCD TV hidden in the mirror, it’s camouflaging really well so that when it’s not on it’s plainly look just like a mirror, but if you press the on button, then it will start displaying that hidden LCD, it can be for a TV or for a media (as in for computer’s screen)

I find it quite useful if you like a clutter free environment. Because to be honest, TV isn’t an easy item to be incorporated in a good clean-type interor design/staging, especially in a living room that encorporate a fire place to be feature as its focal point.
