Hint: It likes water
Hello fellow bloggers! Is it Friday already? And it's the last day of the month! Where does the time disappear too? Today's thingamajig is usually some shade of brown. It starts off wet and ends up dried. It is a natural occurring substance. What is it?

And guess what? This is my 500th post! I guess it adds up, when I post at least 2 photos a day...

It was a level.

Hint: you may keep this in your garage
Hello there! Hope you are having a good day so far. I'm feeling a bit congested today. This thingamajig can be made of metal or wood. This is not something most people use regularly, unless it was your job. What is it?

Hint: It will start to stink after awhile
Hello! Today's another nice sunshine-y day! It's a great day for people watching. It's one of my favourite past times! I should start taking more photos of people, especially of hot guys! Maybe I should start another blog. Today's thingamajig is a very common in households. Most people use this at least once a day. What is it?

They were dried shrimp.
Dried shrimp are regular shrimp that have been sun dried. They are used to flavour soups and sauces. Supposedly, they have that "umami" taste. But I wouldn't know, I am allergic to seafood.

Bonus points if you said "dried shrimp."

It was a binder clip.
You still get a point for guessing clip, but bonus points if you said "binder clip."

Hint: it used to be alive
Today's second thingamajig is quite small, especially now that it's no longer alive. This is common in Asian cuisine. It can be used to make soups and sauces. What do you think it is?

Photo of the day, #232

Hint: It's small enough to fit your pocket
Happy Two-sday! Hope today you will have double the fun and silliness! Life is too short to be serious. The first thingamajig is small and humble! You can find these at home, work or school. They come in different colours and usually made of metal. What is it?

Photo #231 Revealed

It was a hanger.

Hint: it's can also be made of wood or plastic
Happy Monday! I had a pretty good weekend and hope you did too! Today's thingamajig can be found indoors. It is a very common household item. They come in many different styles and colours. This one is made of stainless steel, but it can be made of other materials. They are handy to have around because they keep things organized. What is it?

Photo #230 Revealed

It was a heat vent cover.

Speaking of vents, I would like to do some venting. I find it quite gross when people spit on the sidewalks, especially when they make that hacking sound... 

Monday is a great day for venting. Anything you would like to get off your chest?

Happy Sunday! It's another gorgeous day here! It's a great day for ice cream! But then again, ice cream is good anytime, anywhere. Today's thingamajig comes in many colours and styles. It could be made of plastic or some kind of metal. You can find these indoors. What is this?

Special Post: Look what I got in the mail!

Clockwise from top left: Tazo tea bags, reusable spoon + fork, a very cool reusable plastic water bottle that folds flat, card and Godiva chocolates, Extra gum, Cupcake cookbook and some cute sticky notes

Earlier this month, I participated in the "Favourite Things Swap," hosted by Leanne @ Join the Gossip. The idea behind the swap was to meet new bloggers and as a bonus, receive some nice surprises in the mail!  We were to spend $20 before shipping on our partner, which was chosen by Leanne at random, and send her some of our favourite things! 

My swap partner was Leesh from The Blarkness Chronicles. She is a fellow Canadian who blogs about food, fashion, beauty products and whatever else that intrigues her. 

Leesh, if you are reading this: I love my package! Thank you all the gifts. I didn't expect to receive so many thingamajigs! I love all the green items! ;) You were thoughtful and considerate. I couldn't have asked for a better partner! Much love!

This my first time participating in a swap and I had a ton of fun! I love getting snail mail! Thank you Leanne, for hosting and organizing this swap!

Hint: It also comes in green
Well, hello again! Fancy meeting you here! Hope your weekend is off to a great start. the weather here has been really nice. The temperatures are higher than average for this time of the year. We got nice blue skies and it's warm enough for guys to go shirtless! ;) Today's thingamajig is an easy one. You don't need any more hints. What is it?

Photo #228 Revealed

It was sweet potato.
I love you, sweet potato!

Hint: this could be a nickname for someone
Well hello there! Nice of you to visit! You are too good to me! Today's thingamajig is one of my favourite things, maybe it's because I'm Asian? They come in various sizes and shapes. They are fairly inexpensive to buy in the stores. What is it?

You can get dates at the grocery store!

I've heard that grocery stores are a great place to pick up singles. Anyone tried it? Any success stories?

Close enough if you said some kind of puff pastry or danish.

Hint: it's good with tea
Hi there! Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday so far! This week was also the start of a new tv season. Have you watched any new shows? Today's thingamajig comes in many flavours. It could be sweet or savoury. They are great anytime of the day, but it's a nice way to start off the day with it and a cup of hot tea. What is this tasty treat?

Photo #225 Revealed

They were solar panels.

It was a hair crimper.
Crimped hair was especially popular during the late 80s and early 90s.
But with fashion trends these days, what was old is new again! 

As an example, this is Christina Aguilera in 2011.

What do you think of her look?

This is what the future could look like. 
The second thingamajig of the day is something that I hope to see more of in the future. It's not a fad. In fact, I think that this will gain more popularity in the future and could be the answer to some of our problems. It may be expensive now to buy, but it is well worth the price in the long run. What do you think it is?

Photo of the day, #224

Hint: It's a type of appliance
Happy Two-sday! The first thingamajig needs to be plugged in for it to work. This isn't exactly a common household item. It's one of those things that you might consider a fad. This would have been popular twenty-thirty years ago. If you are a female, you may be at an advantage. What do you think this is?

Photo #223 Revealed

It was a backpack.
Aren't those the cutest backpacks you've ever seen?

Well hello again! Hope your Monday isn't mundane. Today's thingamajig can be made of canvas, nylon, and cotton. They come in various shapes and sizes to accommodate various needs.The ones sold to younger kids are smaller and brighter in colour. That being said, this is not just for kids. Adults use this as well. What is it?

Hint: they come in many colours, as you can see
Well hello there! Have a sundae! It's Sunday! Did I ever tell you how much I love ice cream? Chocolate is one of my favourite flavours! Today's thingamajig is an easy one, especially for my female followers. You don't need anymore hints. What is it?

It's Shemar Moore Shirtless!

Image from Google.
This sexy hunk of a man is Shemar Moore! Some of you ladies may have seen him on the daytime soap, "The Young and the Restless." He was the hottest guy on that show. If you want to see more of this sexy man, catch him on primetime tv on "Criminal Minds."

They were rice crackers.
Not as good as potato chips, but they are healthier!

Hint: it's sold in stacks
Hey you! Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far! Today's thingamajig has a texture like Styrofoam. But unlike Styrofoam, it isn't harmful to the environment and it's biodegradable. They are usually round in shape. What is it?

For bonus points, guess who this mystery guy is!


  • He's an actor. He's mainly known for his TV roles.
  • he's been on daytime and prime time TV
  • he was a former fashion model 
  • he has appeared in a music video

Who is he?

This sexy hunk of a guy will be revealed in tomorrow's "Shirtless Sundays."


Photo #220 Revealed

It was beetroot.
Did you know that beetroot contains, betanin, a natural food dye? Wearing old clothes and gloves is a good idea when handling beets, as they can stain your clothes and hands red. Commercially, it is added to foods to improve the colour and taste of tomato paste, sauces, jellies and jam. 

For some people, eating red beets (as they also come in yellow!), could cause their pee to become pink or a reddish colour temporarily. Does it ever happen to you?

Hint: You may want to wear gloves to handle it
Happy Friday! Hope your Friday is fun and frivolous! Today's thingamajig is usually cooked before using. And the best way to cook it, is to steam it. This is supposed to be good for you. It may be the secret to living a long and healthy life! What is it? 

Why going paperless isn't always a great idea...

Hint: it's a very common household item
Hey there! Nice of you to visit me! Today's thingamajig is so common that most people own countless amount of these. They come in many colours and styles.  I've also seen ones that are scented. They are usually made of plastic, but I have seen them made of biodegradable materials. What is it?

And also, I have added a search box to the blog. As some of you may know, I don't post the same thing twice. So if you are new to my blog, you can do a search first before posting your comment. Hope this helps!

It was a calculator.
I know they still sell them in stores, but do people still use calculators? 

And by the way, I already took a photo of a floppy disk. It was actually my very first post!

Hint: these are becoming obsolete
Hello there! Hope you are having a good day! I'm not in the best of moods today. It's that time of month for me, if you know what I mean. It's not always fun being a woman. Anyways, today's thingamajig is becoming obsolete because of the technology that is available today. They were quite popular in the 80s and 90s.  It's made of plastic and is portable. Japan and the United States are two major manufacturers. What is it?

Photo #217 Revealed

It was cauliflower.
It's true, cauliflower comes in orange, purple, green and of course, white! You can usually find them at the farmer's market.

They were staples.

Hint: This is just one of the colours it comes in
Well hello there! Today's second thingamajig of the day comes in many colours, orange being one of them. Some varieties are more popular than others and those are the ones we see in stores. You can grill, steam, boil, bake or even deep fry them. What is it?

Photo of the day, #216

Hint: it can be a choking hazard
It's another Two-sday! In case you weren't here last Tuesday, I've started posting 2 photos, instead of the usual one on Tuesdays. The first thingamajig is something that little kids shouldn't be playing with. They are small enough to be a choking hazard. Besides, it's not a toy.  It's a very common item that you can find in homes, offices and schools. What is it?

Photo #215 Revealed

It was a croissant. 
It's especially delicious with some crispy bacon and some cheese! Try it some time! :)

Hint: This is especially popular in France
Hi there! Hope you all had a great weekend! Did you do anything worth mentioning? Yesterday night, I made some double chocolate muffins with a graham cracker struesel topping. Words can't express how yummy it is! If only you can taste the deliciousness. Anyways,  today's thingamajig is a baked good made of flour and other ingredients. It could be savory or sweet. It is popular during breakfast. What is it?
