Home-To-Be

Some diversion from the Japan news.

My house, said to be completed by June this year. I’ve been waiting so long and now I feel like I’m a giraffe. Pretty much in a dilemma now. I need more time to get more money, but I want to have my own home so desperately.

The progress is very slow ever since Chinese New Year, guess the developer has channeled some of its manpower to the project right beside this block. I don’t see people working at night as it is always pitch dark now at night when the lights used to lit up the whole place. The paint is on, the rooftop is completed and they’re now working on the ground level.

Been hunting for furnitures for the past one week. I felt like crying looking at those prices…… It is so depressing to know that everything is so expensive now and we have to compromise on the quality just because we have limited dime to spend. I was exhausted, not because of the constant walking and hunting, but mentally due to constantly adjusting our budget and expectations. Sigh. Andrew often said, “the quality is not good, man”. And I often reminded him that, “with this kind of price tag, what do you expect then?”

Saw something that we really like in Rozel, but goodness, we would then have to give up so many other things for that 3-seater leather sofa in Rozel. That’s not going to happen. Stepped out from Rozel, feeling even more depressed!

Saw a reasonable priced 3-seater fabric sofa in Ikea, but almost everyone has been telling me Ikea’s products are bad quality. Saw another similar one about the same price in Lorenzo, but people are telling me Lorenzo is expensive too and not worth the price. ARGH! I don’t know LAH! So everyone everything also not good quality and not worth it LAH……

Sigh…… The hunt continues…… Depression is coming real soon. :(
