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!!!

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

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
