my post is a little bit late this week. sorry guys! here it is:
notice that nice intricate patterns on its ebony surface... true artistry etched on the block of dark material... what is it?
charcoal! hehehe... hubby's office is being renovated and at the time i visited him, the workers were painting the walls already. as expected, the smell of paint was overpowering, but they had no choice for it was business as usual at the office. what they did was just place plastic bags of coal on strategic spots of their office, they believed that the coal would absorb the smell, and therefore lessen it. seemed to work... =)
