The first person they suspected was their Indonesian maid which she denied she has anything to do with it. There was no proof that she did it and according to my brother, she can be trusted. Well, for me, hmmm ...frankly I dont trust anyone.
Although my brother reported the case to the police station, they are not able to claim any losses from the insurance company because there were no sign of breaking in.
Now my brother is seriously thinking of installing the ADT security system at home like the alarm and home security surveillance system. It should be a good move to keep his house under monitoring 24 hours a day and 7 days and week.
With the crime rate and burglary on the rise day by day, a good home security system is important to help minimize the chances of you and your family dealing with these crimes, it also provide safety for a family and give complete peace of mind whether we are at home or away from home.

My empty pots which were once grown with flower were kept at the back of my house too waiting for 'the bad neighbour to move out', hopefully soon!

There are directv in NY, CA, FL etc.... So entertainment is really not a problem when I am old and wherever I will be. I think I am worrying too much and been thinking too far as if I will live up to 100 years old like our fellow blogger, foongpc. LOL
Anyway, I will be visiting Angie with 2 of her friends in July. She has helped us booked our returned ticket from 15th July. So, stay tuned for my update ok!

I cannot be staying inside my house all the time. I need to breath and I need to do my gardening. The trouble is the terrible neighbor at the left hand side is really irritating. I have tolerated them all these while by ignoring them. ‘Shoo… shoo… go away’, I told them softly and off course they didn’t hear me. Well, if it makes them happy, then go ahead, just hope they don’t coup up and end up with having illnesses. What a silly way to release their tension.
To avoid seeing them, I have some ideas but not sure yet to do it. See, while I was shopping for lightings this afternoon; I found this shop providing custom made pergola and I think a pergola at the left hand side of my garden with blinds should be a good temporally solution to my problem. So when I don’t feel like seeing the terrible neighbor, I just have to pulled down the blinds. And with some beautifully designed lightings, furniture and furnishing it should be a great place for me to relax, do my gardening, reading and even blogging inside. Hahaha, don’t you think that is a great idea?
Now, I am going to look for some fine art lamps for my private, cozy corner.

Wao, that was nothing to joke about at all. It seems like a small matter but it could lead to big fire too.
Actually I have just changed the lighting from an ordinary fluorescent light to a fancier one thinking more expensive one would be safer. Too bad it turn out to be opposite.
After the incident, many things came to my mind:
1. What is the cause of the problem?
2. Who is at fault? Was it the manufacturer, the contractor or my house wiring problem?
3. What type of lighting should I go for?
4. Which brand is safer and more durable?
Whatever is the reason, I still have to have lighting in my house. Now, let me plan a little what lighting to use before I call in a contractor.
For dinning hall, I would like something dimmer because on a table, there should be enough light to see the person across the table but not too bright that distract from the mood of the candle like kind of mood I am creating.
And the planning goes on for my hall downstairs and upstairs, my room, my children’s rooms, etc. Not an easy task because I would like to have some beautiful designer lamp which might involve more money. But I think it is worth the money because a beautiful lamp is like an art and it does not only help brighten up, it helps beautify our rooms. So there will be some fancier designed lighting to replace the outdated ones.
I think I will go visit some online store like shopwiki for some lamps buying guides.
