No SPRING SEASON in the Philippines

Yes! There’s no spring season in the Philippines, but only spring clamps. This is the reason why I am envious to my blogger friends living in countries where they could experience the four different seasons.

Spring is said to be the transition between winter and summer. Hence the time when flowers bloom at its most beauteous aura as evident from the above image which I took from Wikipedia.

Yes! How I wish to experience spring season, though I know that would be very impossible to happen in the Philippines, but at least experiencing it in other countries would be enough for me.

A FAB time around the world with Smeg appliances

Smeg is an Italian domestic appliance company that started in Italy. But they didn’t stay there. Like any brand worth its weight in brilliance they branched out and you can now see them in all corners of the world. This is particularly true of their amazing FAB range. A selection of 1950s influenced designs that look great and bring a real sense of style to the home.

Bright, vibrant colors such as cherry red and powder blue can be found adorning Smeg FAB fridge freezers and dishwashers. They look very cool and retro, kind of like something you might find in a classic American-style diner.

What’s amazing is just how much the world has taken these appliances to heart. You can find them on almost any continent (I’m not sure Antarctica has got these yet!), and in so many different countries. Taking a look this Smeg 50’s style map you can see that people have taken pictures of their Smeg and just where it’s located in the world.

For example, don’t be surprised to visit Bejing, China and see a FAB fridge from place to place. Or traveling through Europe you might chance across a FAB in a trendy Parisian nightclub or Belgium cooking studio. A New York apartment might wow you with its great taste in kitchen appliance design as a glossy black Smeg fridge enhances a super stylish decor.

We have always had an affinity for our past. It seems nostalgia and modernity can exist side by side, and this is clear when you see the FAB range. A classic look for the contemporary world.
