Ok, time to reveal my super obsessive side, especially in house/home matters.
Have been pinning for some time about the different parts of the house where I need more structure/organization. So that’s mainly the kitchen, bathroom and our home office/studio.
My main area of concern is the kitchen. Coz it’s just sooooo small. Pfft. Went to a friend’s house in yishun and saw their BTO kitchen. I swear, my brain went on shutdown. It’s tiny! And you know how most BTO will have similar sized rooms. Gah.
Anyway, have mostly planned for a galley kitchen with one side being 2ft in depth and the other just 1ft. Hopefully it works out. Or maybe stick to the 2ft on either side idea, just… One side without top cabinets? Help!

We decided on this colour scheme for the kitchen coz of this picture. And when we went to ikea, we saw a similar looking concept albeit with a much darker grey shade. But it is definitely gorgeous. Sigh!
Then after pinning numerous kitchen ideas, I thought of having our dining area as a breakfast nook. Pin pin pin and… I saw this!
It’s a sign! Hurhur! Ok, not ok with the floral design on the backrest. But the rest, it’s just soooo soothing to my eyes.
I might change my mind again later but so far, this is IT for the kitchen and dining colour scheme! *throws confetti*
A little less than a month to the little one’s birthday and we have yet to settle catering and favors. Tsk. It is difficult to just sit down and have time spent together to discuss on the things that we need to do nowadays. What more with my busy work/school schedule versus his neverending performances/rehearsals. We’ll work it out somehow.
Work. Crazy. My mother and husband have been asking me this question when I get home recently… “What carnage did you get into?” Carnage seh. I probably look like I’ve been devoured by some prehistoric reptile and spit back out coz my baby hairs tickled its throat too much. Oh yeahhh, the hair is in a state. Beyond words kinda state. My daughter has taken to pulling my baby hairs because she does not see it on shampoo ads. How to explain to an 11 month old she cannot believe everything she sees on the TV? Pfft.
School. Been enjoying lessons. BUT. Did not enjoy the way the system crashed. Wahhh. Made me panic. Thankfully could submit the next day without any mark deductions. Whatever it is, I am not submitting on the eve of the deadline anymore. So yeah, next assignment is halfway done. 2 more weeks to the next deadline.
Husband probably forgot that I have been pinning home deco stuff religiously on pinterest. So colour scheme for the whole house is actually settled. Basic ideas for kitchen and toilets done. The rest is still KIV. According to the updates on the facebook page, my block should be ready 1st or 2nd quarter of 2014. Gasp! So fast!
Of course, that darling active mentel squishable baby of mine. She’s standing and coasting, climbing and getting into all sorts of scraps and trouble. Gotta love the way she says Hi and Bye. She keeps babbling at me and continues even when I say I dont understand what she’s saying. Hurhur.
Will update again when I find the time for it.
The mister is coming back tomorrow! *throws confetti* Can’t pick him up from the airport coz I have to work but he’ll have Hessa all to himself for a few hours. Her fever seems to be going down, just in time for her papa’s return. Can’t believe I survived such an exhausting week. Seriously. Mum and I were like zombies.
Current earworm. Husband wanted me to try singing it. Boleh jadi semput.
Anyway, sent the mister off yesterday for his trip to France/Switzerland. Hopefully, he remembered to pack everything. I just want him to be safe and healthy and come back in one piece. Hessa doesn’t realise yet that her papa is farfarfar away. But I’m sure her papa feels that pang, despite his complains that she likes to squish against him when she sleeps.
School starting soon. Books collected. Hopefully I have someone familiar in all my classes. Keeping my fingers crossed. Really praying that I can ace the basic modules. High expectations? Not when you know you KNOW all this. Jiayo!
Party status: M&M’s bought, decorations settled, most dessert items ordered. Venue TBC and catering TBC. Papa is IC of catering. Heh.
Work? Never-ending. *shrugs*
