I went down to AOS today and was sales-talked all the way to but this AO smith 25L storage tank heater. Then I came back home to find lots of reviews that people have been having difficulties with it. Any of you care to share experience with AO smith storage heater? I can't seem to post pictures from iPad. I will try again later :(

bad news :( my ID says that most probable we can't share 1 storage heater for the 2 bathrooms due to the structure of the place between the common and master bathroom. it's all beam which my ID says maybe quite impossible to run the piping. anyway the salesman from AOS told me that he will send his plumbers to rectify the problem finger crossed

anyway, these are our purchases recently


a one-piece water closet (magnum) (S$350 each)


AO smith 25L storage heater which i'm not sure whether it can be used now :(



this is a carysil silgranit kitchen sink. I don't know what is the difference with the bianco granite sink but this Carysil is cheaper.

Some updates on the house today.

I went down in the morning to find that most of the tiling works are more or less done.

common bathroom (my mother in law seems to think that the colors are too dark) but actually our toilets don't really enjoy much light like the rest of the house does because the toilet windows are obstructed by the other block

For my master bedroom, though at first we kinda decided that we wanted pole system for our clothes storage but decided that maybe it can't even fit the hanger and we will have to brush trough many of our clothes when going in to the room. It's very upsetting because the depth of the recess area to the door is only 45 cm.

we kind of rejected the idea of having a 35cm deep wardrobe that ikea has because of the thought that we can't really hang many clothes with such little spaces but I decided to go down and check out how many can it hold.

these are my findings

13884715559_08d7c11370_k.jpgCAM01386 by asy_moshi_moshi, on Flickr

this is the look of the 35 cm deep wardrobe and in 1 rail i managed to put 18 clothes with the bulkiest wooden ikea hanger

14091382313_60a44537e2_k.jpgCAM01385 by asy_moshi_moshi, on Flickr

then i put all the 18 clothes to the normal clothes rail that the 60cm deep wardrobe usually can have and this is how much space it took (100cm length)

14071798614_735cec01d4_k.jpgCAM01387 by asy_moshi_moshi, on Flickr

it takes maybe 2/5 of the whole wardrobe! and as for the 35 cm deep wardrobe (100cm) it has 2 rails which makes them not so mich different from the 60cm deep wardrobe with the same length. Therefore, we decided to get the 35 cm deep ikea wardrobe instead! yayyyy

As my renovation is coming to a close and I am not doing many carpentry work, I started sourcing for some home accessories to keep the house to be too boring and dull. so here are some of the things that i will be installing and have bought for my reno

1. shower curtain, as I can't do up any shower screen due to space limitation.

14143942184_7b51f6d57f_o.pngshower curtain by asy_moshi_moshi, on Flickr

Got this for 19 from singsale and thought that it looks quite nice.

2. a matching dustbin and toilet brush with the shower curtain :) also from singsale. 25/set

3. a set of 2 water dispenser ($69) also from singsale

apology that I can't give the link for these as some links already expire. but no harm checking singsale once in a while as they do have very affordable home and living accessories. the only downside is that they take forever to come. like 3 weeks to 1 month.

So, we are at the last phase of renovation work. There are some touch-ups to be done like wallpaper, curtain, kitchen carpentry, some accessories for the toilets, etc etc. It doesn't seem to end... However, the house can be lived in already, We have our TV, though not wall-mounted yet and things are more or less in placed. Enough talking here are some pictures of the current condition of the house.

There are some problem with the holes that can fit the sink. we bought this vanity from tradehub 21 and when they cut the hole it was too near to the sink so they have to redo it again. Thank goodness they have good service and willing to change the solid surface

master bathroom. Notice the different lighting in the common and master bathroom? I like the cool white and my sister and brother like the warm light. so we used different lighting for the two bathroom.

This is our sofa from cellini, even though it's 3M long it looks pretty small in our living room. LoL

14219788295_8231904a91_z.jpgIMG_20140519_131218 by asy_moshi_moshi, on Flickr

We bought the TV console and the coffee table from the Cellini as well.
