#MKCrib Update

Gotten our keys from our lawyer end of October, and finally it’s happening. Key of a place call H.O.M.E ! Right after the inspection done our super efficient contractor started his work without us saying anything, he just went they with us change the lock so his worker can easily access in to the house then the next day he already got his worker to hack away all the partitions and build-in cabinets.

There’s some hiccups along the way of course some extra requirement from HBD when we apply to hack away our entrance wall and building up a new storeroom. Long story short we are still in the midst of working on this with our newly hired professional engineer, pray that everything work out as planned! without that wall being hack i feel miserable and incomplete. We’ve been praying about this every night with Chloe!

So after a week of renovation, all the tiles on wall and floor hacked, new doorway open up and removed the curvy old door to square frame. Our new tiles are in i guess end of this week they will start laying the tiles! So far i’m kinda enjoy the process and glad that everything slowly coming together. Almost all furniture, fixtures and electric appliances are purchased now left our bed frame which i don’t know what we are procrastinating.

Bye bye A6000

IMG_0469.JPGWe have been talking about upgrading the camera but no action taken till recently me and Ming think in order to upgrade we need to let go our beloved A6000 which had been serving us very well and still in good condition after 4 years. if still working very good why the upgrade right? should just expand our lens collection? but recently i started to accept some jobs on and off so i think an upgrade is necessary and gadget pricing will keep depreciate while the A6000 still worth something must as well right.

So i went posted on IG and carousell with of course not very high hope lar coz i’m not letting go at dirt cheap price because my lenses and camera body still in very good conditions if no one want it i rather keep it then buy another lens instead of selling it low. Carousell buyers only interested in my lens as the new lens still worth the same as we brought it 4 years ago. I would say Sony camera second value really not bad! I got many dms like 30+ from IG and i found my buyer of the camera the next day! Thanks God! We have some mutual friends in IG so i trust her very much and so happen she’s living oversea too so i get S to bring it back to KL then my sister will COD with her friend. Hope she love the camera as we do, and capture a lot of beautiful memories with it!

Thanks for serving us so well dear A6…

God timing is always perfect if S was not here to visit over weekend to help us send it back this deal surely can’t done so soon! So the next day, we purchased our new camera Ming spend day and night surveying which body, lens and shops that offer best pricing. I will bring the new camera to next job this Thursday, super nervous! Pray hard that i produce nice outcome because this time it involves a lot of strangers and kids. God grant me wisdom!

Hosting our dear friend

Very fruitful weekend spent with our old friend/uni-mate/ex business partner and her cute family. Thankful that we made the decision to go for bigger unit to rent/buy so we always have extra room to host our family and close friends. It’s super fun to having stay together for a few days catch up with our life, update on mutual friends and having the kids to play together. S and me have been talking about this trip for almost a year! finally make it happen before QQ turns 2 (yes he is one year older than pettie Chloe but taller than her).

We managed to visit a playground, Sentosa and a bbq dinner at home together with another friend! It was fun to have them around although it was a short stay, Chloe especially love their company she went on and on asking “where is my qian qian didi?”  QQ is really a super funny and cute little boy, every simple movements/actions bring so much laughter to us! really a  开心果.

S and i shared many similarities and thoughts of raising our kids, both of us are now sahm with no help (except husband and parent occasionally) but we have no regret of our choice.  I cherish every moments sharing with her, because she just know what i’m thinking inside and the struggles, the aim and how God provides us with an ok/enough life that we lack of nothing. We agree that if we’re not Christian we surely out there working hard for more money for a “better” life instead of staying home with kids. Which remind me of something i read online “Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family” the first principle Calling – Nothing is more important in your life than being one of God’s tools to form a human soul. 

This first few years of my child i wish i am able to teach her with right and wrong doing based on biblical teaching, and the authority in this family, also nurture her heart because what rules a child’s heart will control their behavior. Of course i must admit i have long way to go, i’m no way near my aim because i’m not perfect and Chloe is not perfect too.

Side-tracked so much! anyway thanks for coming dear friend! see you real soon!
