I was thrilled when I got invited to Elements by Home-Fix. To be frank, its been years since I last stepped into Home-Fix, and the last time i did was when I need to get batteries urgently. 

So, why was I thrilled then? First of all, its because I past by Elements by Home-Fix a week ago and it seems to be so inviting, it has transformed into a new age DIY lifestyle store but I didn't have the time to go in. Secondly, my house will be ready in about a year's time to be exact, its time to visit DIY shops to get some good ideas and also KIV some useful stuffs in my list. 

Taking you on a tour around the shop, of course I did not manage to take each & every single item in the shop. I hope you will be as impressed as I am.

Hurom juicers preserve the natural taste and nutrition of fruits and vegetables by gently squeezing and pressing them through its technology instead of grinding them like other juicers. No wonder my green apple juice tasted concentrated.

If you are like me, maybe you don't know Nippon Paint's paints are no long plain jane anymore!

Paint was once only about colours, and choosing between matte & glossy. Those days were gone. Momento by Nippon Paint has special effects paints! 

I was thinking of wallpapers for my house but not anymore! Paints are more lasting and I am glad that they have evolved into special effects paints :O

Exclusive! "Leaders in air flow technology", Vornado is an established innovator and manufacturer of room circulators and air purifiers from USA. The Vornado story begins with an inventor's vision to improve aircraft design in the early 1920's. Ralph K. Odor began to experiment with unique aerodynamics that increased the efficiency and performance of standard propeller planes and realised that his findings could change the inefficient electric fan designs that dominated the industry at the time. Vornado's unparalleled performance can be traced to its signature vortex action; the result of four proprietary components found only within Vornado technology. Initially applied to air circulators and heaters, Vortex Action Page 6 of 7 allowed for Vornado products to affect not just the air around the unit like traditional fans and heaters, but to evenly distribute all of the air throughout an entire room. The effectiveness of these first products propelled the new Vornado back into the position as a leader in air comfort products. The same revolutionary thinking that created a superior fan has been poured into every aspect of Vornado's offerings today. Safer. Quieter. More intuitive. More effective.
