On my journey to and from work each morning and evening, I tend to listen to Classic FM on the radio. But as the reception tends to be poor the nearer I get to my work place, I decided that enough was enough and I had to find a solution. Hence I decided to buy the Seguro Bluetooth FM transmitter car kit – cost £11.49 from Amazon.co.uk. Continue reading Seguro Bluetooth FM Transmitter Car Kit
Drinking a nice cup of coffee has become part of my daily routine. For the times when I am not able to use my Delonghi bean-to-cup coffee machine to make my coffee, I needed to get a portable coffee maker which could make great coffee with ground coffee and which does not cost too much. Hence when I found the Staresso Manual coffee maker for £29.99 on Amazon.co.uk, I had to buy this to try. Continue reading Staresso Manual Coffee maker
Recently I thought it would be worth exploring other cocktails which may be worth making. One of those is the Singapore Sling, which is highly well known but that we had never actually drunk during our visits to Singapore. And as I had most of the ingredients to make this anyway, I decided to give it a go. Continue reading Singapore Sling
Previously when I first got into drinking a cup of coffee in the morning, I did not know better so I bought the Dolce Gusto Melody coffee machine to brew the coffee. I then realised that it had limited numbers of coffee pods, none of which appealed to me. Hence I tried opening up the used pods and replacing them with ground coffee and placed aluminium foil over it to form the lid, just so I could make a cup I would be happy to drink.
As it was a lot of work and not always successful, I finally gave up and bought a Bean-to-Cup machine by Delonghi to meet my coffee needs. But now that there are refillable pods available for the Dolce Gusto, I thought I would buy these to try – will save money in the long run, reduce the amount of waste produced by those disposable pods, and more importantly allow for the use of better coffee beans/ground coffee to make that nice cup of coffee worth drinking. Continue reading Lictin Pack of 3 Refillable Dolce Gusto Pods
Recently we were made aware of a quaint little cafe along St Clement’s Street in Oxford, called Rachel’s Cafe, as one of our neighbours bought us some moon cakes from there around the Mid-Autumn festival. Hence we decided that we would go visit there to get lunch and more moon cakes late last Saturday morning. Continue reading Rachel’s Cafe in Oxford
Recently when I went on my weekly grocery shopping, I went to the freezer section to buy my usual frozen blueberries and strawberries for my fruit-protein smoothie. While there, I noted that there were plenty of other fruits and vegetables available to purchase – clearly healthy eating and smoothies is big business, which is why there are so many options available. I noted that there were wheatgrass and acai berry pellets for making smoothies, and hence I bought these as well. The wheatgrass pellet pack costs more at £3.00 per 100g, while the acai berry pack costs £2.00 per 100g pack (same as the other fruit packs). Continue reading Wheatgrass and Acai berry Pellets
Ever since I bought the Amazon Echo dot, I have been wishing for the ability to use it as an intercom within our house. With our house spread over 3 floors, having an intercom would make it easier to communicate with my daughters when they are upstairs or for them to check with my wife when dinner will be served. Hence when it was announced by Amazon that calling and messaging was coming to their devices and through the Amazon Alexa App, I could not wait to get this setup.
