Embarking On Our Nest

Recommended Posts

Went to get home appliances and lightings today!

So I will be getting track lights for kitchen! woohooo! ID spot on with his suggestion to my idea. Hubby gave in. (i won) :sport-smiley-018:

Didn't get that today. Gotta head my way down to balstier one day.

Damage to wallet!!!

ignore the honeywell, not part of the damage today but ya, it's gonna be at the new house too!

So for appliances, bought my bread toaster, iron, vacuum cleaner, steam cleaner!

Lightings, got a chandelier for master bedroom, 2 normal for bedroom, one dining light, 2 toilet lights...

Jason Young of Philips attended to us, patient guy who joke with us and yet still answered all of our questions with no annoyance at all.

Thumbs up for him! shall write in my compliment letter for him!

Wanted to get the other chandelier at the back of the pic. But Jason advised against it, cause it will turn yellowish. oh well. practicality taken into consideration! ;)

After lightings, met roy to re-select my tiles for common toilet.

Ended up changing my grey wall tiles to a brighter grey, and having a white feature wall! woots. in love with my tiles! Also gonna have mosaic... *grins* :good:

I still havent get my 3d drawing. Was told he will chase the designer for it. Roy also said that he will give us a schedule. LOL.

His new staff is helping to oversee our project and help to bug him on it at times. good for us i guess! hahaha.

He also showed us how well the wall was hacked without hurting my living room tiles. Can see he is very satisfied with his workers. hahaha. of course, i did tell him that it is indeed a job well done! Shall take a close up photos to show u all. =))

Samsung Fridge

Best Denki staff told us that samsung two door fridge is better than any other brands because the two separate storage areas have individual air flow system. Try slamming the door hard and you will realise that the other door does not move at all.

Indeed, tried for both samsung and LG. LG's door will move!

Might not be taking 2 door fridge tho, too big for two and I have lesser top to work on.

To discuss further on this!

sYawns. I have never been so hardworking putting all these down. Havent even finish my wedding photos editing and yet I'm blogging all these. HAHA.

Now, should be last post or probably 2nd last of the day, anything that I've snapped

se2b.jpg

Tv.. now considering if we should just get one without 3d to save on costs. How?

Bosch waster filter. Like this sleek look, but cumbersome to refill. Only 2 litres storage...

tlja.jpg

And I like this! Nescafe Dolce Gusto. (dunno if i got the name right)

Home made green tea latte and hot chocolate???

water oven!!! initially set my eye on this. But looks like gotta cut this out of my budget. bummer.

washing machine

this is likely to be on the confirm buy list.

Hub not keen to get inverter, says no point since for washing machine you won't switch it on as much as compared to fridge (every day). Thus, you only save like 20-50cents each time you switch it on for laundry yet you are paying $300 more at least at one go. No point.

Saw these items at song cho! Well-known for its stainless steel properties... But also really expensive! omg.

Wow! You are really getting on hands on lots of purchases this week, guess your wallet is crying for help! Hahaha! :lol:

Anyway for the Nescafe Dolce Gusto, my advice is don't get this model at all :no:. The reason is that my office also have this coffee maker but apparently it's difficult to brew a proper cup of aromatic coffee. Need a lot of personal judgment on the liquid flow as this machine do not automatically stop the "liquid flow" once the right mixture of coffee+milk+water is reached. Hahaha.. It's your choice but think twice before buying. :rolleyes:

met roy again to discuss on the tils layout for kitchen and two toilets.

Again, his designer say tomorrow for 3d image. Urm, thinking a little too long right! :wacko:

Shall start chasing him tomorrow for my 3d.

anyway he drew on the wall to inform the tiler and serve as a reminder to tiler. M'sian uncle call Ong. LOL.

SO this is the drawing of common toilet

fkix.jpg

White feature wall for shower area, mosaic tiles will line the side of feature. Black tiles for floor, and doing step down instead of kerb.

As for master bedroom, Roy says he wanna do something different from Common bath, so the feature wall tiles will be at the wall where the toilet bowl is...

ahff.jpg

The mosiac tiles will then be where the shower is.

I really can't picture if it looks good :(

Fingers crossed..

I think you are referring to the other manual model. This model in the picture it's the automatic one. Choose the water level according to what the capsule tells you and it will cut off when it's at the selected level.

anyway missed out few things,

we discussed on glass panels for our kitchen as well.

My original idea way back was to have half glass wall. Cause kitchen is super dark.

BUT, kitchen is also super warm!

So, idea gone, wall hacked in full.

Then I thought of this idea where by I can have two small panels of glass and probably able to have the sliding door somewhere. But, ID pointed out it is not do-able - there is no where to slide the glass into!

ignl.jpg

so ID suggested fixed panel at left side of wall... But, to us that serves no purpose and no difference to the wall that was there earlier.

The kitchen will be bright but it will be really warm.

Sliding glass doow will slide into the fixed panel... But.. very hot right? haiz.

zae4.jpg

Anyway I drew this myself.LOL.

Hubby then suggested if we could have all sliding, that is two sliding doors interlocked, the doors will be kept beside the fridge?

vrij.png

Again my own drawing to explain. But this will, when we pull the sliding glass doors out, the black tiles will show.

Why so headache huh? Hubby think this is the best option tho.

We can keep our kitchen open concept, yet when we want to cook, we can just pull the sliding glass doors.
