Hello September, always my favorite month of the year. Went hiatus for no other reason but just being lazy
Update on #MKCrib we are more a less settle with the house.
Contractor – checked | Carpenter – checked | Aircon contractor – Checked too
We even brought our dream fridge at quite a good price few week ago can’t wait to use it already! Fridge is really important to us as we cooked a lot like everyday, so Ming and i think it’s a good investment. Next will be kitchen hood and hob, no price guessing where we spend our renovation fees most. The price hacking and laying the current wall and floor tiles for the kitchen already cost a bomb then the kitchen cabinet and all the accessories. Better make it worthy by cooking more and utilize my kitchen in future. We are thankful to have some saving and blessing from my in laws without their support we can’t even afford a house here. Recently some friends asked us how much do PR or foreign need to buy a resale flat the answer by the time we place our intent to buy it was at least 28% download payment to purchase a resale hdb but goverment recently increase to 33%. So if you’re getting a 600k resale flat you will need 198k cash in hand or saving in cpf to pay the down payment for a house. Which is ridiculous expensive but no choice who ask us to buy house in foreign land right. Then is renovation fees because all resale flat need some hacking and renovation depend on flat conditions like ours was not that bad but not to my personal liking most of the door are at weird positions so we need to seal it up and hack the wall to open up new doorway for kitchen and common toilet. Storeroom too need to moved to another place in the house as it’s now too close to another room. We are 1.5 months away from renovation take place hope no hiccups along the way.
Back to my happy months, Mum is here for a whole week for ahem my birthday request, so touched when i asked her why she choose this week to come over instead of last week when Malaysia have 2 ph in a week she say it’s my birthday mah! so sweet can die! Best gift ever coz this week i can relax a little as she helped me a lot on cooking and house chores and most important taking care of Miss Chloe. Also a few dates with Ming, he booked omakase for my birthday dinner we can only have omakase without Chloe tagging along and my love for Japanese food is real. I had 3 jap meal in 4 days already this week will be 4 in total, last Sunday we went on a couples date with Ping and Will it was fun and we enjoyed the food very much also each other accompanied. Oh and sister zhi just left after her 4 days here her visit was impromptu, brought the flights a week ago as i think she needed a break. We have a good bonding just before her flight we went orchard for lunch and shop then laugh our way home like crazy women only with her we can talk nonsense and laugh till our jaw cramp.
Exciting September ahead!
