Are you having any partition between the kitchen and the living area (can see that there is a short wall on the left)?

Hope it goes well!

 

Yeah.... The hubs wanna have like a countertop =)

The left side part is to cover the fridge.

The wall can also act as a separation to place our dining table which I was telling you about. It will be infront of the wall =)

Went over to our place last night to check on the placing of aircon and also to open door for some ezbuy delivery.

There really is nothing much to show for now. Tiling works been progressing really slowly.

The progress of now is:

✔️Rewiring

✔️Kitchen & toilet screeding

✔️aircon installation

It was really dark since the lights are not up yet & preg brain me forgot to take photos of the aircon and taobao stuff for the hubs to see.

The only thing that im glad seeing tonight are the tiles which we have selected for our mbr toilet laid out on the ground.

We really love how it looks and can visualise how its gonna look on our wall already.

I see. Will there be a sliding door on the right?

Have you gotten your lightings yet? :)

We were working on a full sliding door initially without the wall. However due to budget we decided to go for "open" concept instead.

Yeah been waiting for the lightings in batches and they just arrived like finally.

U are more interested in the dining ones right?

Waiting is a tiring game.

Hope that the tiling works are completed this Wednesday as E mentioned it takes a week. We are kinda behind schedule already:(.

Sharing some of our taobao purchases.

We are using ezbuy to purchase taobao stuff & would say it is definitely not worth it if you are not a prime member. You don't actually save much cus the shipping(by weight) can turn out scary(in our case).

Furthermore you have to pray that the items are intact and functional.

So far for these items we have shipped, one is missing(white cotton bud holder). Contacted ezbuy weeks ago but yet to get a response from them :/

These are my personal views on the items based on their price & quality & whether they are worth buying even.

1)Floor mat for bathrooms (mai hiam buay pai)

Quality 3/5

2)Cafe style floor mat for kitchen (mai hiam buay pai)

Quality 3/5

3)wooden bread tray (bo hua)

Quality 2.5/5

4)cotton bud holder (mia)

5)tissue holder (wu hua)

Quality 4.5/5

These items are yet to be unboxed and will be reviewed later.

1)Door knob

2)Led ceiling lights

3)track for track lights

4)track lights

5)filament bulb

Are you only unboxing your lightings on the day of installation?

Found a pendant lamp for the dining area, but have not gotten anything for the living room yet.

(I actually did - but changed my mind about it so going to get rid of it 8| )

Actually my lightings came in batches so some are delivered to the current place im staying and some to my new place.I did not unbox those at my new place due to the reno and dust. Those at my current place I have unboxed to repack it into smaller packages.

You mean you gotten for living room but getting rid? How come?

If you are interested I can share photos of my lightings taken from the web since I didn't take any pictures.

For now im rather pleased with some of the lightings I've purchased from taobao(worth it if ship by prime).

Otherwise I think you can hack some ikea lightings too.

Also gotten some 4x 0.5m white track lights but after discussion with electrician it can't be of use cause they are too short for my living (I want to go for a brighter look so electrician helping us to get 2 new 2m tracks instead. Also can save on installation cost as they will charge 4x if I install 4x0.5m ones) I also wanna sell off the track lights after house done. Hehe.

Unboxing some lightings from taobao.

These came without bulbs so we gotta get our own.

Got 2 of these each and would probably put them up in the 2 toilets/kitchen/store.

Especially love the chrome one.
