Hill of Tara

It's always been a great deal for me and my husband to see the lovely heritage of Ireland. We even said to ourselves that we must see every corner of this country before seeing other countries. Hope that will not be far long especially now that it's more fun to travel with our toddler to spice up the trips. 

One of the famous hill to visit here in Ireland is located in County Meath. It is called Hill of Tara or in Irish : Cnoc na Teamhrach (please do not ask me how to pronounce that because I certainly do not know, sorry about that). 

The place was known for its' ancient monuments on top and surrounding the hill. Here are few of my shots of this legendary hill. 


The "Mound of the Hostages" - a small Neolithic passage tomb (constructed 3,400 B.C.)

The Lia Fáil (Stone of Destiny) atop the Hill of Tara, County Meath ( a phallic stone that is said to scream for the rightful High King)



Surrounding Landscape of Hill of Tara



St. Patrick's Church on the Hill of Tara (was evident to be standing since 1190s but the modern church was built 1822-23)


The Wishing Tree at the Hill of Tara (also known as May Bushes, Rag Trees or Fairy Bushes
During the month of May, this tree is highly decorated with pieces of colourful ribbon or fabric tied by local people or visitors as symbol of their wishes and prayers.

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
