Home Sweet Home

I am a believer of zen and coziness. Zen means something clean, simple, non cluttered. Coziness means a space which is livable and does not scream "DON'T TOUCH!"

For the first 24 or 25 years of my life, I shared room with my sister which was big enough to fit us two without our butts bumping into each other. Then the house went under renovation and we each got our own room. Prior to getting married, my room was faaaarrr cry from cozy, almost always messy and retained its teenage vibe. Now, my our room is my favorite part of my parents house. It was fun transforming the room. From Single bed to Queen bed. From wall paper to plain paint and wall sticker. 

Soon we'll be baby sitting sister's newly bought crib and i am super duper excited to be dressing it up albeit minimally and temporarily since our house will only be ready in 2013.

We're both such homebodies that we'd rather stay in rather than brave amongst the many shopping mall goers. Syam is pretty stoked with the idea of moving to our own place so that he can invite his friends over to just lepak. Family of course not excluded. *Need. To. Brush. My. Cooking. Skills.* Therefore, having a cozy house is essential! Found through this practicing lawyer cum blogger cum DC maker (gile multitasker ah!=)) and I've been hooked since! Just look at the space ideas below. All are inspiring. 

Those are just some ideas of how pretty a kitchen and a toilet could be for such small space. All inspiring! I am keeping the kitchen photos as reference point for a possible kitchen make over since our house-to-be will not be a bungalow but just a decent two storey terrace house. I love how space saving a toilet can be ,serving dual function with a washing machine in it? Awesome, right!

Say hello to my new obsession, house decoration! :)

Decor Inspired

I am a frequent reader of Her recent post caught my eyes and interest. It was on her best friend's wedding. On how her best friend did everything from A-Z. If I were to ever ever turn back time, I'd like to try and emulate her wedding. It was just breathtakingly gorgeous. Just look at that wall decoration  (and her gorgeous gorgeous tiered dress. GORGEOUS!!) hand made from tissue paper. Genius and cost saving!

Reading through, her best friend did the flowers based on MADE tutorial. I was then instantly inspired by this image:

And so, I made my very own version of wall flower.

That is how my Sunday was spent. The End. =)

Fickle minded

I know I've been ranting about the miss-events of my wedding for few months now.
25.9.2011 ago, we turned 6 months into marriage. 
Upon looking back at photos and video, the post marriage ranting I've been on was unnecessary.
Looking back, it was actually how I imagined and wanted it to be.
That explains the nonchalant bride I was.
I was just purely ecstatic to be married.
It is weird sometimes how I wish to have the life of others when the truth is the life that I'm living now is exactly what I envisioned it to be.
I just got to be less fickle minded. more thankful of everyday I wake up breathing, with a husband by my side, loving family (including drama and all), a roof over our head, a job stabil enough for splashes of luxury once in a while and just the opportunity to experience life as it is.

Photos updated. Yeap, looking back. It was just how I imagined it to be. <3
