Summer time. The heat and the sun and the garden works making us thirsty. We needed a refreshing drink. An iced tea! My husband's been hooked to iced tea since coming back from our Philippine vacation. We were bombarded there, in most restaurants and hotel coffee shops, with
this cool drink, and most of the time as bottomless offers. He used to shun iced tea and now he's craving for it.
And what would be the number one thing you needed to create a great iced tea? Ice cubes! I had to fill and freeze those ice packs for him but there was never enough. And his impatience brought him the idea of buying an ice cube maker. He's been obssessively checking out the internet, bugging me to check eBay and compare the prices; we even checked the markets but we only saw those big industrialized ones that costed way too much.
And one night, he wont stop googling until we found one in eBay; and since the seller's got Paypal and it is a buynow offer, and the price is just right - I clicked to buy. After a day, my husband's new 'toy' arrived. He was too excited about it; he wanted to start making ice right there and then (he's in the office and am at home), hahaha. Well, he obviously had to wait thus when he arrived home, he's eager to make a (dozen) bucket-full of ice. But first he needed a place for this huge machine... and nope, I didnt help him. I dont really find the machine so practical, but I dont want to put a damp to his happiness.
And plus I dont really know where we should place that thing. The kitchen counter is already full with gadgets and gizmos, I wanted space! So I jokingly told him, maybe with your ice machine, we needed a new house, hahaha. Well, he laughed with me while pushing and shoving the items in the kitchen and he tried to make me happy by saying that we would need this ice machine only for summer. Alright, and where should we store that in winter?
Anyway, here's the result:
And that's only one corner in the kitchen. The rest of the gadgets are scattered on the other side of the counter top. Hayyy, I want space.
