Is it difficult for you to find really hot or cold water when you are away from home? Get yourself a thermos and you will never have to drink luke-warm water again. It is like having a boiler or a refrigerator with you at all times. If you catch a flu you will have a steady supply of hot water, and when you’re walking in the sun you can be sure your water will stay cold. Don’t forget to keep a thermos in your backpack when you head out on a trip or go camping. Keep the cover on tight and a good thermos can keep water hot, or cold, for up to 24 hours.

Save yourself the trouble and go to the nearest market to buy scented gel that smells like whatever flower you desire. go to the nearest market and buy the scented gel with fragrance you desire right now. The smell will last for 30 days or more, so you can leave your flowers in the garden where for everyone to see.

You can save yourself lots of time without sacrificing any of the lovely smell.

Apsara sculpture
Although these dancing ladies are famous for their portraits on the walls of Angkor Wat and relics in the national museum, you can make your own dwelling much more attractive by buying a wooden or stone Apsara sculpture for your own living space.

You can even make it a party and get the karaoke going once the evening wares on.
