Mobile and Infrared Saunas

I was watching a magazine show when a very interesting news caught my attention. It's all about this very unique mobile sauna of Finland. I have heard that there are some mobile saunas in US too which is very amazing. As what the term suggests, mobile saunas are saunas on wheels. Just think of the RV! Like those Recreational Vehicles which are complete with all those living amenities like kitchen, living room and bath room , these mobile saunas offer almost the same facility that a real sauna has.
Well, I have been to a sauna before and I really had a nice experience there too. But have you ever though of having your very own sauna at home? Is it possible? Yes it is! You can have those commercial infrared sauna(s).
This infrared sauna(s) uses infrared radiant heat unlike the those typical ones which uses air or steam to warm the body. It's very recommendable for busy people who can afford to have much time to visit a sauna. Aside from the convenience, these saunas is well known for their durability as well. It offers a nice and inviting design and whether you're aiming to have shabby , contemporary or modern style for your house, it will surely suits perfectly .
So would you like to have these saunas at home? Why not right?

Walk Away ~ Alanis Morissette

Here's another Pop-dance oriented song from Alanis. Walk Away is included in her first album entitled Alanis (released in 1991). Its protagonist sends a warning to her boyfriend who "never think[s] twice before [he] break all the rules", telling him "I'll walk away and say good bye if you don't want me anymore ... if I don't get the love we had before". The single's video features Matt LeBlanc as Morissette's boyfriend who arrives late for a date with her, and it includes scenes in which Morissette dances. The promotional single for the song includes a radio edit only. The song charted at number 35 in Canada."Walk Away" was one of the demo recordings Leslie Howe and Morissette created with keyboardist Serge Côté in the studio, after Howe and her entertainment manager Stephan Klovan had decided to try to secure a record contract for her.

Too Hot ~ Alanis Morissette

"Too Hot" is a pop-dance song co-written by Alanis Morissette and Leslie Howe, and produced by Howe for Morissette's debut album Alanis (1991). The song is driven by drum machines, electronic keyboards and a guitar, and Morissette's brothers Chad and Wade provided some of the backing vocals. In the chorus the song's protagonist tells a boy aspiring towards a goal that he's "Always too hot" and "never too cold", adding that his "best shot" is "too hot to hold"; with this in mind, she urges him to "go for gold". At the 1992 Juno Awards "Too Hot" received a nomination for "Single of the Year", and the song's "Hott Shot" remix was nominated in the category of "Best Dance Recording". ***My Note*** It's very surprising to see this kind of Dance Oriented songs from Alanis Morissette's album. I never thought that she would came up with such song ahaha. Anyway, be the judge, what do you think?

For me, it's really unusual to see her dancing LOL

American Idol 2012 Top 13 Revealed

From 24 Contestants it went down to half and we finally have the Top 13 finalists of this year's American Idol. It's a pretty interesting batch actually and I'm so happy to see 2 fellow Asians in this group including our very own Jessica Sanchez and Korean-American Heejun Han. Both of them are crowd pleaser so I'm sure they will make it far in this competition. I'm not sure but I don't think we will have the James Durbin or Adam Lambert experience here because last week's performance is quite boring for me (in exception to Jessica and Phillips performances).
Anyway, let me introduce you the Top 13 Finalists of American Idol 2012.
1. Colton Dixom
2. DeAndre Brackensick
3. Elise Testone

Remembering Alanis Morissette

I know, i told you few days ago that I will not be sticking to a certain theme for this month but I changed my mind and I just can't help it LOL. I am not really into rock genre not unless you're referring to Alanis Morissette. Her music is simply stunning and creatively done. Alanis is a Canadian singer-songwriter, guitarist, record producer, and actress. She has won 16 Juno Awards and seven Grammy Awards, was nominated for two Golden Globe Awards and also shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination.
Her first international album was the rock-influenced Jagged Little Pill, released in 1995. Jagged has sold more than 33 million units globally. Alanis, is obviously our theme for this month so expect to see a lot of post showcasing her music and style.

I want to become a Pasty Chef

Will you believe me if i say that I wanted to become a pastry chef someday? Unfortunately, i'm way too far from it because I do not have any idea on how to bake. We do have some cook books at home but we don't have any equipments for it. I'm always fascinated by those gorgeous cakes that are being showcased at some notable magazines. I wish i have the skills to make at least some cup cakes or even some icings.
Well, it's not too late right? Cooking is a skill and you can always train yourself to improve. After all, there are many vocational courses right now that will teach you some basic baking and culinary techniques which can be very useful for an aspiring chef pastry like me.
But before taking any course, I may have to purchase some cooking and baking equipments first so that I can practice it myself at home too!
I think i would go for a complete set of KitchenAid Professional. The brand itself is known for being high in quality and highly versatile that can perform multiple functions. I actually went to , a website that focuses more on KitchenAid products and provide necessary information about the items. I think this is a great way to start my dream to become a pastry chef. Am i too ambitious for it? haha
