Something money can buy….

January 20, 2007 at 11:15 p01 (General Chatter)

My apartment had been going for a makeover for over a week now. Have been living in a dump with no tv and hot water while all this is happening.

We are not complaining though, as we had been looking forward to this renovation for a while and we are glad it is happening now.

Although our life had been turned topsy turvy by all the inconvenience, but i never see wifey any happier. She is the “happiness” barometer in our household and with that i would say the reno money is well spent.

 Well, money can’t buy you love but happiness, yes. Albeit a temporary and transient one. Happiness in any form and substance is welcome here!

Here are some “goreng” photos of the reno work….

day1: Help! MC Hammer is running amok…

 day2: Construction materials everywhere!

 day 3: the heavy makeover began!

a few days later: first time i lived in an apartment without a functioning door. the door leaf was taken out for tiling work to the entrance.

project management: if wifey read engineering, i am sure she will make a good Project Manager!

    reminds me of the time when we re-tiled the floors downstairs of the house, and put in a new sliding grill. total mess, lots of dust, but worth it at the end of the day. can’t wait to see your “new” place post-reno!

    4f: hope the finished effect is worth the experience.

    A good reno = A happy wifey = Great nights on bed = A Happy SeeFei
