Our Master Bedroom Basic Reno

Finally did a mini reno for the master bedroom.
We're not looking at a major makeover nor splurging on an ID for the room as it doesn't make economical sense. Moreover we ain't sure how long would we be staying there

here comes.
Not easy getting a contractor willing to do a small job just for the room

1) Removal/ hacking of built in wardrobe
2) polishing and re varnishing of parquet flooring
3) Repainting of the room
4) Painting of 2 room's doors

Total Damage: $950 + $80 for bangala to throw de debris away...
Kaoz..smelly smelly also $1k loh...haiz......Talk about the high expenses related to wedding matters..

Let's take a look at the Before & After...

Big difference right? After paying $1k for this room, it better look different from the original room loh.
The workmanship's not too bad actually. There're no signs of damage or residue after the built in wardrobe has been removed.

The flooring's the part we felt it was the most worth! it looked as good as brand new can!! woohooo..$$ well spent we hope...
There's also when i finally realize the beauty of parquet flooring / marble flooring. Cos it can be polished and it does wonder to give your flooring a whole new look! As good as new!

I love stark contrast and the colour Red for a bedroom. Especially for our master bedroom as red exudes sensuality and passion. Especially good in a relationship.
My ideal wall colours would be black with red walls but it'll make the room appear way too dark. Also if we have all 4 walls painted red, it'll make the room appear dark too.

So we had only one side of the wall painted red to give the room a little "3D effect". And the rest white with a very soft shade of pink.
It brighten up the room almost instantly!

This will be where our bed's headerboard will be at too. against the red wall.
And of cos this is still incomplete, we'll spruce up the walls with pretty wall murals / decors too.
After selecting and placing the furniture that is.

The window's grille damn obiang though..but i guess with pretty curtains covering it, it shouldn't be much of an issue. Trying to cut cost wherever possible.

By right the cheapest method would be for us to DIY paint the room ourselves. But the difference is probably only about $300 or so and you still need to buy the paint on your own.
So reckon it's more practical to have them do it once and for all?
ok la..We Are lazy la..much as we like to save some $$ hehez...

Here are some examples of the wall decals / decor we wana incorporate in our room too..

Though it ain't exactly my ideal design (red and Black theme)  like this;

(lol this one too over already, just for illustration purpose..muaha)

but I do like the red part the most. and with enough wall decors, i supposed the room will appear more lively.

Just that it's kind of challenging choosing the right kind of furniture now. Initially, it was easy, just stick to black and red for contrast.
But now it seemed more like a red, white and black concept..hmm..Tricky!!

Off the head we both love a little bit of the zen style as we both love platform beds too!
Just some ideas;

i absolutely heart this!!!

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.

We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …
