Recently or is it a few weeks back Mr randomly told me that we need to start sourcing our for our renovation and I need to make up my mind of the kind of flooring i want for our future place. Downside of SBF flat, you don’t have a choice to choose for opt-in or opt-out. So the unit we selected have these : HDB tiles (out), kitchen partition wall (in), internal doors & sanitary fittings (in). So of course, we need to sort out flooring first before anything. I am so going to hack the kitchen partition wall by half or into whatever design that i already had in mind. Lastly, i am going to change the internal doors for my toilet too.
Mr had his mind on Evorich Flooring Group because most of seniors recommended it to him. They have various flooring products. Even his elder sister is using this kind of flooring and it has a life-time warranty etc. I, on the other end, dislike the design because its woody kind of look. I cannot imagine my house flooring so woody. I prefer big, clean, square and bright coloured tiles like white, off-white or light grey. Flooring that i can do mopping if its oily etc. Flooring like my parent’s place especially but of course, i don’t know where to find it. I need to do more research and ask my dad what are tiles called.
We both are planning to make this our first and last abode, in shaa Allah but if our future were destined otherwise and we are allowed to upgrade to a better accommodation, why not? But of course, that is way out of our future league. So i hope we can do proper and good renovation for our future place. Invest in good materials with simple design to call home. So i believe rushing is a no go for this kind of things. I am going to drag my parents along too during the ID hopping to get their opinion because sometimes their opinion will really help. I am in love with the ID that renovate both my Aunts place so i may consider to enquire their ID. Another ID will be cozyspace because i love their simplicity. My colleagues said i should do ID hopping now slowly and some said to choose stone or marble for my kitchen top. But i am planning to do ID hopping after wedding instead so that at least, i can think through properly and think straight too. That’s the best time, to see your final financial status and how much can be spend for renovation itself because achieving no loan or low loan amount is very vital. If no loan, even better but of course, Mr’s friend advice us to take loan but use that loan money to invest short-term contract and eventually pay back the loan in a lump sum.
So recently, i became too lazy ass that i did not do anything productive other than to eat, sleep and watch television because its just the time of the month. Not to forget, getting too clingy to Mr that i hate the sight of myself being like that. Not getting his attention will means i will end up sulking and sleeping it off. Perangai pecah! But i know he love having a clingy fiancee because most of the time, i love to be on my own and be as independent as i can. The lazy ass but want to be productive self actually downloaded this application Qanvast! I don’t know how good or reliable the app is since i have yet to try getting any quotation from any of the IDs but i used it as a platform for design basis. So it is something like pinterest. You can pin/love the design you like and put it according to the board that you name/organize. Since then, i have been glued to my phone looking through designs after designs which eventually got me confused. They even have a 12 page guide: Budgeting for your Home Renovation. I have yet to read through it but saved it under my Ibook for future reference. They have other guide articles on their website/application. Even i read through that based on the picture (design) you love and other details (budget, concept etc), they will matched you to 3/5 ID firms and get a quotation from them. If you take up with the IDs that were recommended by Qanvast for your renovation and halfway through, they run away or whatever, they will payback a certain amount of money (if i remember correctly, 50%?). Macam ganti rugi gitulah kan. So i am on the roll for kitchen designs and i have love to many pictures. Not to forget toilet too! But i am so fussy about the living room instead. They even sell products with cashback. So i have been favouriting their sinks/taps for future reference since i may forget what i actually had in mind eventually.
So dear Abode of ours, continue to build yourself up well, firm up well too and be ready for us okay because we are excited to be your owner already. We have always looked at other sites but little did we realised, you were there all along, near us, waiting for us to select you and invest in you though you are the most expensive long-term investment. But in shaa Allah, it will a worthful investment between my future husband and myself because you will be the witness to every growth of ours as husband and wife, the shelter for us against rain and shine, the safest playground for our kids to play one day and not to forget, you will always be the first gift my future husband actually get for me, a home, to protect me against evil and harm.
Thank you love for working hard always to fulfill my needs and dreams although you love to annoy me with i need to OT more if i spend too much. There isn’t anything more manly than a husband protecting and doing his best for his wife. In exactly 90 days, in shaa Allah, it will be us sealing and signing our vows and Allah swt will be one of the witness among many of the other witnesses.
Back to work tomorrow, prrft! Counting down to my next leave already, I CAN DO THIS!
Lots of love,
