Parents should be well aware of the ability and capacity of their child before buying a puzzle best for him or her. Don't just rely on the age guideline written on the box. Children should be encouraged to play jigsaw puzzles not only because it's fun but also of the great effects. 

Effects of Puzzle 
  • Develop the sense of patterning which supports the child's skills in reading, logic and math.
  • A child learns how to think strategically as he put pieces together.
  • You may heard a child talking to himself while doing the puzzle, it is the sign that he is trying to solve the problem. Analyzing which piece goes to a place. 
  • Concentration is another important thing that is developed not only to a child but also to adult. This is the reason why jigsaw puzzle is such a relaxing activity. You are focus in doing one thing. This is definitely a good way of freeing your mind from other things.
  • Playing puzzle creates a quality time with family and improves cooperation seen by sharing techniques or strategy.

The effect of puzzles have been proven so many times. Although, it is very important to match the puzzle's difficulty to the age  and ability of a child or an adult. Otherwise, a person might get bored because it is too easy or discouraged because it is way to hard. 

You must choose a design that is appealing to a child or to you (whoever will do the puzzle). A very familiar thing, place, animals or even cartoon characters are very good options.

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

Seeing the Other Side of the World

I've been living here in Ireland for nearly five years now. I never thought I will be given a chance to the other side of the world. When I decided to come with my husband here, I carried a special joy in my heart because I know my life will change according to God's will. 

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
