House builds by WHAT?

The same question, House builds by what? Brick? Wood? NOPE!

Let’s come with something unusual! Have you ever heard about houses built by empty bottles? You will know what am I talking about after viewing all pictures showed below =D

Bottle House Built in Mexico

Amazing! Am I right? Through the pictures we can know that every each part of the house, all are made by those empty bottles! Whether it stable/safe or not? Seriously, I don’t know…but can you imagine how many bottles they need to collect and build such a big house? Here are some other pictures which are the same: “Bottle House”

Wow, this bottle house having a gorgeous metal tree inside

In architecture, reuse often plays second fiddle to recycling when it comes to the building materials. As affordable and environmentally benign ways to build become more common, more unique structures will result from the reuse of discarded materials like bottles.

These photos show us that beauty and recycling can match if there is enough imagination.

Nowadays we can do anything with any material.

There are already container houses, and now houses built with bottles, so what will it be next time? Have an idea?

Seriously! Are They Cakes?

Found some imaginative cakes I would like to share with you. Well, I don’t really know is they’re tasty but their aspect is sure impressive!
So would you plan to eat them or you keep them? =D

Maybe some basketball fans/ players dream to have a cake like this one for their birthday, who knows…

Haha, is this a burger or cake? Confusing~

OMG! LV bag?! It must be very expensive...XD

Hmm…Which part should I start to eat? The jewelry?

Zombie Birthday Cake…

Little Toilet

Pac Man Cupcakes

Seriously, these cakes are more masterpieces than simple cakes.
Sometimes people forget that cooking is ART, I mean, just transforming basics aliments into something totally unexpected is so exciting.
I love the way people who cooked them played on: the texture, the colors; with people’s imagination… these cakes really look like something else, it’s just crazy.

Anyway, interesting cakes can make the special occasion even more special and interesting. Those special and unique designs sure help to create a sweet memory.

Hats & Caps

Hats/Caps are definitely fashion items you should wear carefully; wearing them with an inappropriate outfit can be very risky for your look.
Now let me share with you different kinds of hats and see how they can be worn! 

Toque/ Beanie
Such hats are known in other English-speaking countries by a variety of names, including beanie (American); the terms tuque and toque are unique to Canada and northern areas of the United States. Both male and female can wear this fashion accessorize.

Baseball Cap
It is a type of soft cap with a rounded crown and a stiff bill eyeshade projecting in front. The front of the cap typically contains some unique designs or logos of sports teams such as baseball teams.

The back of the cap may be “fitted” to the wearer’s head size or it may have a plastic, Velcro or elastic adjuster so that it can be quickly adjusted to fit different wearers.

Cloche Hat
Cloche hat is typically for only female. It is a bell-shaped hat and features a narrow brim, rounded crown and made by soft material. The word “cloche” comes from the French word meaning “bell”. 

Although cloche hat was most popular in 1920s, but it is getting more and more stylish in recent years. With the wearer’s eyes only slightly below the brim, it become fashionable to turn the brims on cloche hat upwards.

It uses soft felt material and a narrow brim to complement its sharp intended crown. The materials used to make the hat range from wool, tweed and rabbit hair. It is popular in America’s pop culture such as Michael Jackson, Jonny Depp and Justin Timberlake.

Indie Horror Short “Microcinema” Scores Two More with Ronda Hatton Kudo and a Slot at Shock Stock Horror Convention

The hits keep coming for the Harvest Tide Productions first online and internationally self-distributed horror short independent film: “Microcinema”, written and directed by Harvest Tide Productions.
Starring Alex Lewis and Aurora Grabill, “Microcinema” is the story of Peter Martell: a highly educated, well-to-do young man with too much free time on his hands. He spends it watching snuff films. One day he makes the bold decision to cross the line from observer to participant.
Ready to go to work, he tracks his first victim into a haunted New England wood, where the boundary between participant and observer takes a different turn.

“Microcinema” recently won a fan-based 2012 Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Award Honorable Mention for best Short Film.

In 2011, “Microcinema” scored on several best-of lists and gained momentum as a cult favorite and a hit with horror reviewers. 

Chris Conduit of The Conduit Speaks put "Microcinema" as the best horror short of the year giving it his Conduit Award.

"Microcinema” is now available on the film’s website for under .99 cents.
“The best horror for under a dollar.”

 What the critics are saying about “Microcinema”

"The film is brave and unrelenting. It is a breath of fresh air to a lot of the common horror tricks that are being trotted out time and again.”-Alexandra West, Scare Tactics Blog.

"Skip Shea is an adept director with equal ability to write, his short film gets more across than most full length films.  4 out of 5 Stars" - The Bleeding Dead Film Reviews.

Live Life to the Fullest

I’ve always been intrigued by Korea.

I think that Korea is a country which gives its meaning to the word “share”: They do so much to share their culture with other countries, to create an interest for this country, to make people want to know more about South Korea… 

I also love Korean architecture and Korean gardens, just looking pictures of them give me a peaceful feeling. I love their gardens’ harmony…sometimes, just by looking at them; ideas pop out of my mind. I hope I’ll be able to visit them one day.

As I like eating good things, I love their food: I think their food associate healthiness, taste and creativity very well. I like the way they transform basic aliments into something unbelievably creative.

Well, I really consider Korean gardens and food as ART, true ART (with a big A).

I must add that It’s amazing to too see a small country like South Korea succeed to impose a real phenomenon on the international platform: the KPOP phenomenon…I’ve heard that their concerts are often sold out few hours and sometimes few minutes after the reservations opened.

In the past South Korea experienced many difficult periods but their perseverance really demonstrates that working hard and never back down when you face hardship can lead you wherever you want.

I’m sure that Korea’s success inspired many Asian countries and showed that you’re never too small to shine on the international platform.

If you ask me why should I be selected as the one to join the Touch Korea Tour? 

First of all I can say I’m enough passionate about South Korea to join the Touch Korea Tour, I enjoy trying new experiences and I’m sure that joining that tour would be a great one. Not taking part of this uncommon adventure would be really regretful and my motto life is “Living without regrets”. 

Live Life to the Fullest

Also, participate to this tour would allow me to share my experience with people who sure are very interested in the topic.

Sharing with others is for me more than a passion; it’s a way of life. It would be great if could transfer my interest for this country to much more Malaysian people.

I really want to see Korean architecture and gardens by myself, I really want to amaze by what I may see there, I really want to live a fantastic experience and I really want to go to a country that inspires me a lot!
I want to be able to feel this country creativity, with all my body and my entire mind.

I think there’s no single word in this world to describe how much I love this country and how much I’m passionate about it.

Joining the Touch Korea Tour would allow me not only to realize one of my dreams but also to get more inspiration to promote my country from the way Korean people achieve to promote their country.
