Mauritius Souvenirs

It’s hard to visit any country without bringing back a souvenir and lucky enough for tourists, Mauritius has something for everyone and all budgets. A lot of souvenirs available from Mauritius are also handmade so there are many unique pieces available to buy. As a child I used to buy souvenirs for all my friends as they had never been to Mauritius, in those days they were very cheap, I even got a Sari for a work col...

Fix It Pro Scratch Repair Pen Review

Fix It Pro Scratch Repair Pen Review

No matter how careful you are with your vehicle, at some point or the other, you will start to notice scratches appearing on the paintwork. It could be when you were parked at the supermarket to do your shopping, someone opened their vehicle’s door a bit too far and that caused one of your front doors to be scratched in the middle. For me, the worst part of my car was around the door handle area and I guess a lot of ...

Why can’t you be happy for other people’s success?

Why can’t you be happy for other people’s success?

We are living in a material world today and it’s a shame to recognise that people are jealous of others’ success. If you see that somebody else is getting ahead of you, your heart aches. It doesn't really matter whether it’s a close friend/relative who’s succeeding or it’s just somebody you work with or know. At the end of the day, the feeling of jealousy should not really be there. If you think about it carefully, y...

How to play music from your iPhone / iPod through your car radio

How to play music from your iPhone / iPod through your car radio

Last time I checked, I had around 500 songs on my iPhone and that number keeps growing on everyday as I find new songs to add to my playlist. I must admit I always carry my smartphone everywhere I go because it has all the functionalities I use – calling, texting, camera, music, internet browser and other amazing apps. However the only caveat was I couldn’t listen to the songs when I was driving because my car has on...

DIY Car Window Tinting Fiasco

DIY Car Window Tinting Fiasco

For a while now, I wanted to get the windows on my car tinted. The idea occurred to me when I was trying to find an alternative way to sun shades and I thought it would give me and my family more privacy as well. Other people may have different reasons but for me I wanted to block the sunrays when in the car and be able to travel comfortably without the uneasiness of people staring at you and that would give us the a...

Jump starting an automatic car with a dead battery

Jump starting an automatic car with a dead battery

Over the weekend, I decided to put up the car window tint film that I bought from ebay and since I knew it was going to take a long time, I switched on the engine to listen to some music so as to avoid boredom. Well that was a very big mistake! Actually the engine was not on but I had to turn the ignition enough to be able to roll the windows up and down. I must have been busy tinting the windows for at least 2 hours...
