My New Place (Part 2)

Here are some more updates on my condo renovations.

25 July 2013 -- Painting works have commenced in the bedroom.
-- Dragged Raj Boy to the Inovar Flooring showroom in Jalan Penchala to choose the type of flooring. Burmese Teak it is!

26 July 2013 -- Made 80% payment to Inovar Flooring via Maybank2u. This needs to be done before they install the flooring, which has been scheduled on Friday, 2 August 2013.

27 July 2013 -- Dragged Angie to Ikea for some serious shopping. I got myself an Ektorp 3-seater sofa and a Hemnes television bench.

When I purchased the same Ikea sofa about 5 years ago, I just had to mention which sofa I wanted, pay for it and they would deliver to my house. This time I had to go to the storage area, look for the sofa, place it on my trolley, roll it to the cashier to make payment and finally roll it to the delivery counter for delivery. Have you seen how big a 3-seater sofa is? Thankfully the Ikea staff were around to help us do the lifting. Delivery date and assembly is on Friday, 2 August 2013 together with Inovar Flooring installation. I like to kill many birds with one stone :-)

28 July 2013 -- Went to check on the renovations. The Nippon Lilly White colour that the contractor suggested turned out more yellowish than white. Sigh ... I had wanted a white effect to make my tiny condo look bigger, but not pure white. So the contractor suggested Lilly White. Now I have to live with yellow for the next couple of years.

More to come soon ...

I've read too many updates about your condo renovations and I'm so excited to see your photos. It's easier to buy a condo these days since it's a lot cheaper than houses. It's perfect for individuals and those with a small family. I just hope you post the photos as soon as they're ready. Thanks, Julie!
