We 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!
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!
Key handover date is getting nearer and nearer if everything goes smoothly our renovation should start 2+ weeks later! i finally posted about us getting our house in sg in Instagram stories last week and get quite of few of congratulatory message from our friends..haha so cute lar my friends like we’re getting married second time or something but indeed they know us well and how much we wanted our own house, it really a dream come true according to one of my old friend.
After coming back from our short trip beginning of the month, we’ve been busy visit shop after shop for household appliances and furniture. So far it’s been productive, we manage to get quite bit of stuff settled! Thanks hubby for spoiling me, he really supportive and always wanted the best for our little family. So far these are most favorite buys!
Mitsubishi Folio 5 Door Refrigerator
Made in Japan Fridge is always a dream, the smart storage is really something i need. Different compartment come with different temperature for different purpose to keep food/ingredient fresh for a longer period of time. One of feature i super love was the auto ice maker with washable ice tray! I always reluctant to make ice with the normal freezer because the ice absorbed odors from its food neighbors inside of your freezer and the ice always smell so bad but with this fridge the ice is in a designed storage without mixing with other food.
Blanco Silgranit Sink
Love at first sight! Not the usual stainless steel sink but the SA and online reviews assure us it’s super easy to maintain even better than the stainless steel one. There are few color to choose from black, grey, white and nutmeg, of course i option for white and come with matching mixer. Ming is pleased with the size and depth as he is the “dishwasher” of our house. I am planing to under mount the sink for cleaner layout and we even went extra miles to get the build in soap dispenser from Blanco too! Can’t wait to see final outcome already!
Fujioh Oil Smasher Hood
Another made in japan product, it’s huge haha as we don’t want to any top hang cabinet above our hod so we go for a Chimney hood for better oil/smell suction as i cook in daily basis so this should come in handy. Most importantly it’s super easy to maintain and clean compare to other hod we survey and yes again it’s white! why so perfect right! We got the bundle set so our hod and oven are both from Fujioh too.
There’s some other stuff like toilet plus bidet seat, basins and slower head for common bathroom are purchased. We are moving on to furniture shopping for sofa, tv console, dinning table and our bed frame.
