SHANGHAI ON BUDGET(1st Solo Backpacking)
(View of Pudong District from THE BUND)
Shanghai - China’s most dynamic city. It’s not a small or cheap city, it has world class metro & one of the best Chinese cuisine. Although it is the face of modern China, it has also retained many of its historical buildings & cultural areas.
This is probably my first “solo backpacking” trip. Yes! my first time going solo, and I’m really proud of myself after this trip. I’ve been wanting to go to Shanghai since last year (2011), that is why I always check Cebu Pacific’s Piso Fare promo(1 peso fare) and grabbed the opportunity when they had a sale going to China.
TOY DRAWER HANDLES
I’ve been out of tumblr these days, I’m kinda busy with my thesis. hehe
For now, I got you something really simple, haha, The picture above showing drawe handles made from toys, I think I don’t need to stretch it out in how to make it, it’s really obvious.. hehe..
If you got some painting skills, why not try one of these at home. :)
I think the pattern/image is easy to paint, since it uses just two-three colors. :D
EXPOSED CABLE ART
Got some annoying exposed cables? Solution: CABLE ART! pin those cables to you wall and and form it to figures. :)
TREE BRANCH ROOM DIVIDER
A tropical approach in a living room, tree branches/dead tree trunk used a as screen or room divider,you don’t actually need to do some sort of finishing to the tree trunk itself, to retain its natural look. :)
TREE TRUNK WALL TREATMENT
A tropical treatment to a plain wall, tree trunk was cut parallel to its circle. But be sure not to cut down young or living trees since we’re trying to be friendly to our mother nature. :)
CAN LIGHTING:MANILA OCEAN PARK RESTAURANT
This is not actually new to me, what’s new is when I saw it in a classy restaurant at Manila Ocean Park.
NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM : COFFEE TABLE
We’ve seen some superb retro projects before with the Giant NES Controller and DIY Pinball Coffee Table, but this Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) coffee table really raises the bar. The giant version of the original is not just for looks – the NES coffee table’s front cover has a fully functional jumbo sized NES controller for playing old 8-bit video games.
COMIC STRIP WALLPAPER
You can actually use recycled comic book pages or, have it photocopied for a uniform black & white effect. This could add drama into any space and can save you money from buying the usual wallpaper.
