Some reno updates!
Went to the house over the weekend and glad to see some progress, albeit a little slower. #tohtallylokeyhome #dayrehomes #ivyytaobao
// day 26 //
House clear of debris and rubbish.
My aircon is done by my mum’s good friend’s husband. Uncle knew that painting was done so he coordinated with my ID for the installation.
He will be making another trip down when the house is done to deliver the remote controls. He didn’t want to leave it in the house because he was afraid that it might get misplaced. 👍🏻
I really love our paint colour a lot.
It’s Genteel from Nippon for the generic areas.
Yeps, City Gas came to install the pipes!
Got a bit of a scare because my neighbours reported that the earliest installation from City Gas is after Christmas already.
Gan chiong and texted my ID. Told me appointment was all set up. Phew.
So people, make sure you get City Gas early to prevent any delays!
It’s Blue Jumper for the rooms, recommended by my ID. He really has an eye for such things. One thing I really like about him is how he tries to improvise with our suggestions and combine both our wants.
Nothing much has been done to the toilet but I just love how it looks!
Just realized that we have to close the window when someone is using the toilet because anybody who’s walking on the corridor one level above will be able to look in.
My mooncake lol.
Don’t know why it’s called the mooncake. My ID refers to this as one and he said they all use this term lol.
It’s 12.12 today and there’s sales everywhere!
Wanted to cart out a dress from LB since it’s only $22 but the moment I tried to add it into the cart, it’s OOS 😫
Saved some money there.
Wanted to get from Ohvola too but no sizes too. Money saved.
Tried to camp for Xiaomi surprise box at Lazada and it was OOS when I was at the payment page 😑
Balmain warehouse sales start today and I’ve seen so many posts on Dayre. Feeling gan chiong now because i wanted to buy mattress protector, 1 more set of bedsheets, pillow and bolster. Would there still be anything left on Saturday? 😰
But I still spend $400.
On #taobao. For the house 😅
#Ezbuy says they are getting back to normal but I call BS on that.
Had a Prime purchase on 5 December and out of 6 items. 2 are still stuck at “Purchasing Order”. I don’t think you need 1 week to click the “buy” button.
Took more than 2 weeks to reply my email too. Now that I have a reply, I’m hoping it could be expedited.
Decided to use EK Link this time round. His reviews are good on various taobao FB groups.
Talked to him in WeChat and he got my account set up within 10 minutes. He is very responsive too! 👍🏻
1cbm for 500rmb so we whacked the items.
It’s my first time using EK Link so I’ll post up a proper review and guide after I received my items okay!
No links for now. Will review and share the link when I received them!
60 pegs for 12.80RMB is a steal omg.
I bought 240 hangers for the new house. 😅
For the upcoming gatherings.
I think it’s quite cheap! 50 plates for like..16RMB?
For undergarments and socks!
Boomjoy broom set. Can rotate 180 degrees leh!
1.8m study table!
It was so difficult finding such a long one. Most sellers stop at 1.6m.
Wanted a big one so both of us can work on the same table, and to put printer etc.
we got 2 of these for the study room 😅😅
It’s about.. $80 plus for both.
Coffee table! Something small because we don’t have the luxury of space. Anyway we can keep pull the smaller one out as and when we like it so no problem for now!
1 for my dresser and 2 other for the living room. So cute and it’s only $6 for 1.
Best thing about this is that the cover is removable! So it makes washing really easy 👍🏻
Because my Totoro umbrella died on me 😭 got the one in light blue :
It’s available in both automatic and the good old manual opening. 10rmb difference!
Shower curtain for the common toilet. It’s just so cute!
It’s just so cute. Even comes with the scoop.
Bought both! The colours are lovely. Bright enough to remind us to do laundry lol
Thanks to the 12.12 discounts, I’ve saved about..$10 lol. Better than nothing right? I paid up last night and as of this evening, less than 24 hours after payment, 11 out of 14 items were already sent out!
Can’t wait to receive them 😬🤞🏼
