"Shitty" Toilet

Sinced i've moved to the site office, i've been experiencing the worse working environment in my entire career. But it is all compensated thru an allowance provided by my employer. So, i can just shut up and not complain. Anyhow, i just cant tolerate this 'shitty' toilet that i have to live with for the next 2 years until my project is completed.

Can u shit in here? With all the construction noise coming from outside with all the hammering, drilling & whatever else going and thingking that the whole cubicle might just tremble & walls falling apart! I just cant bare to squat in peace...So, lucky me, a 5-star hotel is just opposite the site..and toilet..

Ahh..much better.. =)

Wood Hangers

Todays suits & shirts are far more refined, but even those contemporary slender jackets or dress shirts can’t beat a cheap hanger in due time. Prevent your suits and shirts shoulder construction from getting flimsy & dented on the shoulders due to the pathetic steel or plastic hangers. Investing on a wooden hanger would benefit your clothes for a very long time. The classy old-world wood appearance befitting the closet of a person who has taste and style.

Designer Miuccia Prada's fashion house was formally known as I Pellettieri d'Italia, and that's what its outlet store still goes by. The inconsistency tends to confuse less-savvy tourists. (For fashionistas looking to score last season's It-bag for just $200, that's not a bad thing.) Shoppers can also find deep discounts--50% or more--on Prada's second-tier line Miu Miu.
