Embarking On Our Nest

Recommended Posts

wanted to check out if cabinets are up. But not yet. haha. probably too anxious!

Noticed that my toilet doors are up tho!

It's aluminium door, with frosted glass in between.

Decided to get this after noticing the bathroom door of my friend's house is sinking and the door can't be locked properly.

Still looks as good! Will take another photo after the black tapes are removed.

So here it is now

And here's my switch by the wardrobe - Tentatively only a lobang now. lol

I was still talking to hub, we dont seem to have a theme.

Rojak I will say.

But as of now, it is still as per what I envisioned it to be.

Pity I couldnt do up a scandi theme cause it will not match no matter how. LOL.

Still like how it is progressing tho!

Hello Ck83, I do not have the contact. It's my ID's contact. =). it's aluminium framed door with frosted glass.

Like it much, and no concerns like glass doors which will sink over time.

Cost me about $500 if not wrong..

lack of updates recently due to pure laziness and lack of interest in continuing this blog. haha.

so.

just gonna post up some pictures and let them do the talking!

Wall tile changed because not using Citygas.a8py.jpg

guy from Teng Yong Curtain came down on 24 Aug to measure curtains length etc. Confirmed quote came out as $300 from initially expected!

The cloth designs they have.

Buit chose this instead! A bit dark for my liking... Prefer white or lighter colors. Hub prefers some contrast.

Common bedroom wall has some holes! But ID confirmed that they will do back properly.

The drilling of console into the wall cracked the thin wall. haha.

more pics of carpentry work..

common wardrobe, love the colors

showing the empty space, maybe can put a clothes hanger in future.

and my mbr wardrobe.

laminates are wrong! as in, should have more of the white shiny pieces! ! !

Feeling a little upset that it's not what we have planned. Carpenter has probably not told Roy and just decide to do it his own way.

Can only take it as it is.

feeling a tad bit unhappy on this. but again, adopting the 80-20 view on this. it's not exactly ugly anyway.

and also Mr Jimmy Chiam of Jit Sheng Aluminium did a great job.

The lobang at kitchen there fixed with windows

very thankful to a friend who helped to go through all the hassle to bring these two fans back!

felt so embarassed that he had to go around buying these!

Very happy with this buy too! Ceiling fan saved half price, as for stand fans, probably about 30%?

went to hunt for rice cookers and saw this very chio black hitachi one.

But not sure about the reviews for it too!

Then, there's also Philips's rice cooker. This one has a very thick inner pot, which claims to be good?

yzd9.jpg

and this, older model i think

Saw some zorjirushi and tiger's rice cooker which i was not able to take pics cause the sales person was hanging around.

Still considering if to get either one of tiger or zor? Or hitachi/ toshiba/ philips? OR just get the normal old school type? Since cooking rice for 45 min is just way too long!

We are used to having food once we are back, so the old school models which only take about 15 min seem like better options for us!

Happy news that make my day today!!

Super super happy.

First of all, kudos to Fortytwo.sg. They really have great service I will say.

I had ordered my bedframe yesterday only to find out that earliest delivery date is 21 Sep. I was planning to move in on 15 Sep!

So, I was dismayed, although that means I really just have to sleep on the floor.

But, still trying my luck, I asked if I could arrange for earlier delivery.

And this morning! just received a call from them to say that due to a postponed delivery by a customer, they are able to give me that piece and deliver on 14 Sep!

Now, that's really flexibility we are talking here.

So, really big big thumbs up here cause it really make my day! (even if it is due to a coincidental chance that someone postpone)

=D

Also went to check out on new house again yesterday.

Slowly liking how things are forming.

Should have used cool white for downlight, cause we are switching on more of it due to cost efficiency. hahaha.

Shall post up pics once uploaded to imageshack.

House is finally done up!

Moved in 2 weeks back and was busy enjoying the house.

Pics here and probably conclusion on my reno later.. =)

A comparison of 3d versus the actual.

Love how my kitchen looks like now.

Kitchen looks the best so far. LOL

My master bedroom.

Love the chandelier.

Realised one issue with the frosted glass toilet door.

It allows light to shine through, so it is a little too bright when i let down my 95% black out curtain.

had to cover the toilet windows with towel nowadays!

So, unless the toilet door is not directly facing the bed, maybe a good idea not to use!

my master bedroom toilet! (trying my best to hide one corner. LOL)

and the long awaited painting to be up!

Moved this all the way from Aussie while on my honeymoon.

We know BKK will have loads of this but didn't think we will be travelling to BKK anytime soon.

For AUD200, it's quite cheap.. =)
