I did some chalking! Here's how it looks.
It was too hot to sleep, so I did this instead. My chalkboard wall is turning to be my go-to place whenever I feel the need to "do something with my hands". Before this triangle "wallpaper", I had on a whimsical bird on a...

Sharing my experiences on IKEAhackers with about 50 people today ... I am relieved that it's over and happy it went well. #publicspeaking   
Outside of this blog, I don't talk much about my work and what I do on IKEAhackers. So when my church asked me to share a bit of my story to a group of young working adults, I thought I should step up and share the things I'v...

Applause! For one because I remember my first public appearance. It was horrifying and rewarding at the same time. Congrats you did it!

Phew! It took a while but this is the last part of my trip update. :) It details my visit to the Concept Centre and discussion on the trademark issue.
Read Part 1 here. Read Part 2 here. Our last day was spent at the IKEA Concept Centre in Delft. It is an actual IKEA store with learning and research spliced in. In here, IKEA studies customers' interactions with their pr...

Read about my trademark talks with IKEA. 
It's been more than 3 weeks since my trip to Sweden and the Netherlands and I finally found time to gather my thoughts and write about my meeting with IKEA. I know some of you have been anxious to know the outcome and my apol...

Red's gone. Say hello to my new chalkboard wall! 
Just wanted to post an update on the red wall. It's now a chalkboard (Nippon Satin Glo Crater Black). Truth be told, I had a bit of painter's remorse the few days after the red wall was gone. The room felt a tad darker and I ...

Sebnem sent this link my way and it just made me go all ... awww... inside. Hope it warms your day too.  http://www.boredpanda.com/japanese-cat-bed-ikea-duktig/ #ikeahack   #catlovers

More stories from my trip to IKEA of Sweden. Writing this post and thinking back on my 3 days made me smile. I would love to go back there one day. 
Read Part 1 here. After a good night's rest, I was ready to be wowed by IKEA of Sweden (IoS). I was told that this is where IKEA is most IKEA. The DNA thickest. The heart. And indeed it is. The new extension of IoS opened not...
