Painting Project: Bed Frame

I took on a new project this weekend – painting!

Meng gave me a bed frame for free last week (thanks bud!), which I will be placing in the guest room. It’s a beautiful color of medium oak but I’m repainting it to white to suit the guest room’s theme. Bear in mind though that the guest room revamp is nowhere near completion yet, lol. I already have the “finished product” image in my head. But what I don’t have, are the funds to buy the right things for it just yet.

Anyway, I’m loving this new project of mine! I enjoy doing something so different from my previous restricted lifestyle in the apartment. I love the freedom and the space that I’ve been given here.

Life just seems extraordinarily beautiful this particular Saturday afternoon.

Kitchen Corner

As you all know, I’ve moved to a new place now. It’s a quaint little house with rustic, old charms and I love it.

One thing I love about moving is that I get to buy new items and furniture to decorate the whole place! So moving into this place definitely keeps my hands busy, haha. I’m still in the process of unpacking everything and trying to make full use of the storage given. I suppose decorating this place will be an ongoing project that I will enjoy very much.

Meanwhile, I will be posting photos from time to time to show you all what I’ve been working on. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

This is one of our kitchen corners.

The beautiful lilies are a just-because gift from Kin one night. I was queuing up for bubble tea at the shopping mall with my brother and his girlfriend and Kin suddenly disappeared from my sight. Minutes later, he came back with a bouquet of flower in his hand, awwww……

That’s all for today and hopefully there will be more to come!

Dilemma

Been contemplating whether to cut my hair short since forever. And whilst I contemplated for the past two to three years, my hair grew to great lengths and it is now just slightly above my butt crack wtf.

I don’t really want to risk having my hair smeared with you-know-what so I thought I should at least give it a trim. Or should I brace myself and cut it short (at least 15 inches to be cut here)?

By the way, I actually wanted to insert a vain photo of myself with my super long, luscious hair (meh!) but since I still don’t have any internet connection at my new place, I’m writing this post from the office (sshhhh) and I don’t have any vain photos of myself on my work laptop so I suppose the vain photo will have to come some other day when I have internet connection at home! Hahahaha! I won’t fail to make you want to gouge your eyes out 😛

Let me know what you all think.

House Hunting

I’ve been busy looking for another place to move to for months now. The whole house-hunting project wasn’t easy and we were disappointed several times when our applications got rejected but guess what, God saved the best one for us after all.

I’ve been staying at my current for three years already and it’s finally time to move! I have nothing to complain about my current place except for the lack of space. In fact, I love it for so many, many reasons:

  • It’s so near my work place – just two streets down! I can walk/cycle/drive to work effortlessly (depending on my level of laziness each day, hehe.)
  • It’s near the new shopping mall, Claremont Quarter. Love, love, love the interior of this mall so it makes my shopping experience there just wonderful.
  • It’s near the post office – two streets away as well!!! Waiting for a parcel but they dropped you the ever-so-annoying “pick-me-up-at-the-post-office” card instead (common problem for apartment residents)? This never really annoyed me that much since I can easily walk across two streets to collect it! Oh yeah! *I rock pose*
  • It’s near the train station. The train station and train tracks are literally just across the street from my place. It was hell during the first few nights after I moved in because I never had to sleep with crazy beeping, buzzing & HONKING noises of trains! After three good years of training, I’m now immune to it. In fact, it’s actually quite soothing to listen to, since this is how being at “home” sounds like to me now.
  • It’s near the medical centre. If I’m feeling unwell, I can just take a short drive of three to five minutes to see a doctor. Oh, and the chemist is just another two minutes drive away.
  • It’s secure. I wouldn’t necessarily call it safe with a pub nearby (drunkards almost every night and definitely throughout the weekends, plus the Claremont serial killer is still on the run!!!) but it’s definitely rather secure because of the security gates we have. The new place we are moving to is not fenced and I don’t think the back door has a security screen =(
  • The people. We have some really friendly and wonderful neighbors. Although most of them are gong gongs po pos, they had made our stay here very pleasant (not much ridiculously loud noises, except from the new resident downstairs, hmph!). Wing Kin and I have helped others with things like changing a punctured tyre (I played no part in this besides watching hahaha!), retrieving a cellphone that dropped into the manhole (!), etc. They have also helped me when I stupidly locked myself out of my unit with no keys and cellphone and was in my pajamas without a bra when Kin was in Miri T_T
  • Last but not least, I had a lot of fond memories here in this place. For the last three years, I ate, drank, shat, slept, danced, played, injured myself, argued, prayed, laughed and cried in this cozy little place I call “home”. I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t miss this place at all after I move out. I will definitely miss this place – for the convenience, the comfort, the luxury and the memories it gave me…

I have exactly one week to move everything into the new place but I won’t get the keys till Monday so that only leaves me four days on hand to sort everything out. Feeling a mixed emotion of excitement and anxiety – I am SO excited about moving but I’m worried that I can’t get things done on time!

This weekend will be crazy! I have boxes in the apartment right now and I have to try to stuff three years worth of junk into them. Wish me luck!!!

Can’t wait to show you guys the humble new place I’m moving into as well! Wheeeee~
