St. Fiachra's Garden

St Fiachra's Garden is found at the center of Irish National Stud. It was named after the patron saint of gardeners, St. Fiachra (St. Fiacre).

Waterfall at St. Fiachra's Garden, In Front of the Monastic Cells
This garden is about 4 acres of lakes, woodland, wetlands and islands and was designed in 1999. As you reach the heart of Irish National Stud, a beautiful waterfall in the middle of the rocks will welcome you. The sound of the running water is very soothing. I even paused there for few minutes to enjoy the cool breeze while contemplating.

Water, trees and shrub surround it.
In front of the waterfall is the Monastic Cells made of limestone. 

The dome-shaped chamber is also the home of crystal sculpture, which originated in Waterford. (Waterford is the famous place where high caliber crystals are made. I also been there and will tell you about it in my future blog post.)

Waterford Crystal Sculpture

St. Fiachra was born in Ireland on 6th century. He had an intense knowledge of medicinal plants that lead him to cure illness like hemorrhoids and venereal diseases. That’s why he also became the patron of venereal disease sufferers and patron of medicine.

  1. The garden is so beautiful especially the 2nd picture. It's like a dream land that you never want to leave and just stay in the place, having a good time. If I just have plenty of money, I would book a ticket and fly to Ireland with no regrets. :D

Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives.  Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside.  Colosseum admission fee: Full ticket - €18.00 EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25)  EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18) Opening hours: Mid February - mid March: 9 AM - 4.30 PM Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM End March - end August: 9 AM - 7.00 PM

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in

House as Clean as a Hound's Tooth

Modern cleaning products contain harmful ingredients. Anyone in contact with these products can be affected rendering health problems like irritations, allergies or even respiratory illnesses. It cannot be denied that  household cleaners  available in the market will give us outstanding results. But, are they truly safe for us to use? Be extra careful in choosing cleaning goods. Loads of toxic ingredients might be in the formulation and just waiting to attack. Toilet bowl cleaner for example has chlorinated phenol that are harmful in respiratory and circulatory system. Ethylene Glycol Butyl Ether is present in all purpose cleaner and other cleaners damages nervous system, liver and kidney. Deodorizers has formaldehyde, which is a respiratory irritant and probable human carcinogen under conditions of unusually high or prolonged exposure. These are just few of the many hazardous chemicals composing cleaners. Unfortunately, it is not easy to pin point goods with hazardous ingredients. If
