寫 "漪" 生 活

Home Sweet Home (8) – HUAT AH! We’ve moved!


This is such a fulfiling and long and tiring and no-words-can-describe-our-excitement process, from day one till now, we can’t be more grateful.

More than three years of wait.. it’s really no kidding. Now let me share some Before-and-After pictures for the fun of it! Hee hee… it’s also a long time since I felt so excited to blog everything down for my own membrance, Of course, also to share with my readers, wheover is still reading my blog, thank you!! I know, I haven’t even complete my honeymoon entries lorr…

First Before&After picture gotta be this, we took the first pic on our key collection day, and then, after 6 months…. at last!! Everybody out there, stop saying “So fast!” le… hahaahahaha….

Before and After

I always thought I took many pictures, but in fact, I didn’t! This is the rare few pictures of the before pictures… lol.. coz when we first enter the flat, there is no lighting! and even after reno, still no lighting! coz those pendant lights have to be installed the last so that at the carpentry stage, the workers will not knock into the lights… which explains why the dark and dull pictures…

Living Hall - Before & After

Loves these Muuto lights! Hehee…

Walkway - Before & After

The place that undergone the greatest revamp, our bathrooms!! From overlay of wall/floor tiles, to changing of wash basins, and to building of shower screens… etc.

Kitchen, a place that I haven’t been spending much of my 30 years in. I hope I can learn cooking in this place from now on. 🙂

Kitchen - Before & After

And so, we started packing weeks ago, boxing up stuffs, but could only pre-shift some stuffs two days before our Shifting Day, because Mr K only schedules our chemical wash on Thursday! Hahaha… no choice! Within two days of moving, countless to&fro trips from our parents’ place to our place, no kidding, super shagged can…. but nothing can stop us, we’ve moved in on 18th May 2014!!

五月 是我喜歡的月份,18 也可以是“要發”,一切都很棒。我们搬家囖!

Oh ya, also the Sony Smart TV!!! OMG~ I thought it’s too huge for our living room, but I let Pail decide on all electronic purchases lah.. and now, it’s super shiok! This TV can connect to our wifi connection at home, and it allows us to pair up to Youtube from our Mac/iPhone.. so geeky!! kekekeke…. =p

We do not have a balcony, but we created one! hehehee… love this shelf from Taobao!!! There are many of such shelves, but this is the only white and wood look one!! Wheee~~~


The cutest door-stopper ever~~~~~ it works as it has a certain weight, but the HDB main door is too heavy, so we DIY-ed a rubber door-stopper to add on friction, and now it works! 😀
