The fun begins

Right. After meeting a bucha interior designers/contractor (from here on, will be known as reno-guys), we've finally decided on one despite bursting our budget. Budget aside, we or rather diL got along pretty well with our chosen reno-guy which is probably the main reason we chose him. His designs are aweeesooommmeee. On our first meeting with him, we spent close to two hours just talking.

After we received the amended quote, we headed to RHB to get a renovation loan. Even if I had $40K in my savings, to throw it all at once would hurt unless there's a 0% instalment plan. Also, I don't have $40K. Side note, that's not the renovation amount.

This morning, diL informed me of the approved loan amount. $28,500. Now to revise the quote further. Kinda a good thing though. The lesser the amount, lesser debt.

So, first up on the renovation - choosing tiles this Saturday. ^_^

Okay, back to checking out reno-guy's previous designs.

I have friends who spend $2K+ on one awesome luxury bag. Then I have this idiot friend (who everyone thinks is my BFF, no lah eh) who spends the same amount of money on over a hundred colourful, pretty bags. Good quality ones as well.

So off we went to CCK to snap pictures of the bags and tally them against the order/invoice. We managed to clear only one huge box. There's another two boxes to go. But Nuryn was sleepy, my sister looked tired and Ikhsan had school the next morning. We left at 11pm. I'm tempted to head back tonight to finish up.

Thanks Afah for preparing dinner and making us go bonkers over the 100+ bags. Don't know which ones to reserve. Hahahahaha.

For helping with the labelling and packing, thank you lil sister/one of the NQ owners, Zyma.

Thank you diL for being ever so patient with my "business plans" and supporting my crazy schemes.

Wait for the "launch" on NiftyQuirks. Will probably have a mini flea weekend as well. =)
