Highlights of February 2015

February was certainly a really short and busy month for me.  I went away on a short trip to Taiwan  to spend a weekend with R.

It was a really visual feast me as I had the opportunity to visit a few different places during my 4 day trip. Last week I shared about our visit to the Chocolate Wonderland  and I have yet to share pictures about the Fisherman Wharf where it was located!!

I took nearly 700+ pictures that weekend and have yet to share the photos I took at the seaside, rose garden, tulip garden and lantern festival. I guess that you have to be contented with some snippets that I’ve included in this post. 🙂

It was nearly the end of the Sakura season but I was lucky to spot some of these blooms at a private grove that we visited.  Looking at flowers always cheer me up. Do they do the same for you?

Looking at the cascading waters of a waterfall feels me with awe. The wonder of nature hidden in pockets in the valley in a national park. Taiwan certainly has lots of nice trails and places to visit.

If the mountainside isn’t for you then head to the seaside and you be amazed by the unique rock formations that can be viewed.

February was certainly a month to celebrate love. It was a time for me to celebrate the love of my life  in a post all dedicated to him.  Even though we still have our differences but there is nothing that can’t be work out if we try our best to communicate in our relationship with each other.

Besides focusing on romantic love I also shared a love with this new obsession that the kids have with hama beads . Tiger girl and I have been crafting nearly everyday since I introduced this craft to them this year. It’s one of the ways that I enjoy bonding with her when she’s home after school.

I managed to get some reading done in February and reviewed  these two books

The Art of Having it All

Thinking New: Harnessing the Power of Belief

These motivational books have  help me refocus and realign my thinking and strategies towards reaching my goals. I will be trying out the suggestions in  the 2nd book explicitly to enhance my ability in reaching my weight lost goals.

How was your February?

  1. Flowers really are one of God’s masterpieces. That rock formation kind of looked like a sleeping lizard. Does only SG have Hama beads?

    1. @Ceemee,
      I buy it online from TAOBAO.com which is a China based webmall and get it delivered through a forwarder in Singapore. I believe that is maybe avaliable for delivery where you are if you do have access to online sellers.

  2. Funny enough I was just discussing how quick this February passed by with my hubby this morning, only for me to see this post.

    Beautiful and colorful flower collections with great tips as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh yes the spring blossoms enhearten us – our bulbs are up here in Scotland, but snow came again overnight to cover them!

    A delightful series of shots Dominique – happy week to you!!! YAM xx
