Yes I’m still alive. Radio silence since February and I’m finally back. And good to see that Dayre is still alive, although there are lesser and lesser new posts =/
Work was absolutely crazy, but we survived. 2 whole weeks of OT till 10-11pm is really no joke. It sucks the soul outta you. I had so many sleepless nights. But despite the hiccups and stress, I love my team, I love my colleagues. We were there for each other, we encouraged each other, we helped one another even though we were dying ourselves. They make the tough times better.
The big event is over, and it was worth it when the video we created was played on the big screen, and we received compliments on the work done. Boss is requesting for a day off in lieu for us and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for it!
Another half day work this Saturday which will translate into another off day! Saving all my leaves for the wedding, and our honeymoon (hopefully). I have accumulated.. 31 days for this year so far.
We have also hosted 2 rounds of housewarming for our families and friends. Glad that that’s done! It was really tiring hahaha.
For our families, we ordered our buffet from Good Luck Kitchen and the food was good! No pictures because I was too busy hosting to even snap anything.
For our friends, we ordered nasi lemak from Aliff Nasi Lemak from Serangoon Gardens Food Centre. Why there? We had it at one of our friend’s place and the nasi lemak was soooo good, we decided to keep this contact for our own housewarming.
We ordered Set A x 30, 30 otahs, 15 extra chicken wings, and it all adds up to $160. The rice was super coconuty (YUMS), and the chilli. Oh it’s to die for.
The auntie was very kind! She didn’t collect any deposit from us and she also lent us her rice tub. The rice was still very warm 12 hours later. Happy to say that everybody loved it! The portions are big, so order slightly lesser than your anticipated number.
We got so many bottles of wine, that one might think we are alcoholics 😂😂
I was over the moon when our guests said that our house is very cosy. That was how I designed the house to be. Ultimately, it’s a place that we come home to everyday and I wanted it to be welcoming, cosy, filled with warmth and love. For outsiders to even feel that way, I’ve achieved my goal! 😊
Love coming home to this. 💕
Our ID brought his potential clients over for a tour, and also signed off on our handover at the same time. A few more minor defects to fix and we are really done! He gave us a very nice surprise – we got some money back because we paid too much hahaha. For the amount that we paid for, and the quality of the work done, I gotta say it is quite affordable. #dayrehomes #tohtallylokeyhome
Signing with Dan was the best decision we made for our renovation, even though he drives me up the wall with his slow and very sporadic WhatsApp replies.
