    Spices to spice things up

  15. Plant a tree
  16. I never knew how interesting this would be until I tried it myself. Get to a nearest supermarket to get a nice pot, some black soil, and your favorite seed (choose from vegetables & fruit like tomatoes, corn, herbs, or pretty flowers like daisy, orchids or roses). Make sure to water it at least once every day for 2 weeks until you see the first leaf. After that, you’ll want to keep visiting your plant friend. Try even talking to it by asking it to grow faster. 😉 If you live in an apartment, try indoor plants. See i-village for top indoor plants idea.

     

     

  17. Adopt a Pet
  18. A cat, dog, rabbits, fishes make great companionship and is a way to keep ourselves occupied. A pet would need feeding, cleaning up, love & care. Just make sure to consider the responsibility factors before owning a pet.

    Man's best friend

  19. Take a drive for food hunt
  20. Team up with some friends or family over the weekend for a food hunt somewhere far. Places like Ipoh, & Penang are well known for good & cheap food. It’ll be a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city too.

     

  21. Go Window Shopping
  22. Month end is still far away? It’s okey, just go window shopping. Look at stuffs, touch them, feel them, try it on, and then walk out of the shop. No need to spend anything or swipe the credit card for it, unless of course you really feel it’s a life/death deal you can’t miss. If you feel guilty of the staffs giving you a cheap look, just remember that they are paid to work there, and it’s not your responsibility to make them feel satisfied.

     

  23. Paint your nails/try NailArt (girls only) use diamonds, glittery stuffs and decorate…
  24. You’ll need many colors of nail polish, nail clippers & buffers, toothpicks, nail art stickers and a top coat, and never ever forget the nail polish remover. It can get really messy for beginners. Refer to step-by-step nail art for more ideas.

    Give your nails new look

  25. Read a book
  26. Books used to be a way to put me to sleep those days. And then I figured that no one should be forcing you to read a book but yourself. Try asking yourself what interest you the most. It could be fiction, motivational, romance, horror/thriller, mystery and many other interesting genres’ of books available. Take time read a few pages before picking a book that will interest you. Each writer will have a different approach to suit different readers. In no time, you’ll find yourself totally hooked to a book and no time for boredom!
