brickwalls.

the first thing that caught my eyes from this house was the beautiful white fences that were contrasting the red brick walls... on my mind, i thought "now THAT is my kind of house."
though, i would make the walls and fences much lower than this one, and the whole house much much smaller (when there comes the time when i could afford to buy my own house, hehe..), so it would look much livelier and less soul-less :)

i do believe that our house, our appearances, our clothes, and/or even our taste in music could really define and represent our true-selves to the community..they somehow show who we really are to people.

i am not a big fan of huge houses (although i am definitely not against it), but sometimes they could look so lonely. i do think people nowadays build their fences and brick-walls so high as if they want others to stay away from them.
the bigger the house, the less connection it has to the outer world.

and sadly, many of these huge houses are not very welcoming...now THAT is what i definitely don't like.
and i find it ironic when the riches build their houses as big as castles when they barely stay at home and always being too busy digging fortunes to make another gigantic house...so at the end, their maids are the only people you could find living in their houses.

well, i often say to myself that i DO NOT want that kind of life.
i want not just a house, but a home.
i wouldn't mind a tiny house with a big life in it, not the other way around :)
i want a house that is openly and warmly welcoming any guest (but this doesn't include burglars though :P)
but fortunately, there are still a lot of big houses that actually have more life with its family in it...and i consider that as a truly blessing :)





spot the photographer! :P

  4. haha I'm kind of like this too. I really like cosy, small houses although as someone who's lived in both big and small houses- I definitely appreciate all the good things that come with both! the silver necklace is really pretty :)
