Hunting for home furnishing stuff

Today is a super eventful day and I feel the base of my feet are getting numb!! I was walking since morning and only stopped for meals and now I'm back to write this blog entry :)

In the morning we went to Toa Payoh to redeem NTUC voucher from OCBC bank. They are giving us 300 bucks voucher because we signed up for their home loan package. So we can now start buying all those cleaning agents from NTUC and start cleaning the house! *excited!!*

After Toa Payoh, we went to Great World City because Jess told me there are few nice shops over there. Indeed we found a few nice shops, I think we've decided where to buy our clock and other small decoration stuff, and maybe the shoe rack but that's not confirmed :)

Next destination was IKEA @ Queensway, not sure what was going on there! Everything was missing from its original place, maybe they are going to have some kind of new designs or renovation. But our main reason to go there was to get curtains, so we have so-called decided on the motives and we also found out the sewing service charges, but as sotong as we were, we didn't bring the curtain measurement! *bang head on the wall*

Then we went to TradeHub 21 @ Jurong area. They have many furniture shops over there and we saw quite a lot of nice sofa, TV console, and coffee table, but our main mission to go there was to scout for a dining table, so we didnt buy any but of course we kept in mind what are the stuff that we can buy from there. I'm actually eyeing this set of bar table + 2 bar stools that is selling for $599. Hubby said we're not going to use it often but it was my dream to have an open-concept kitchen where we can put bar stool. Now since we can't have open concept kitchen, I feel like buying the bar table + 2 bar stools.. I imagine our flat will look so trendy :D *but seems like there are a lot of bad reviews about nova*

Then since our legs were breaking and our stomachs were making lots of noise, we headed home for dinner.. ordered Ritz Pizza hawaiian and meat diva *u can be a diva and still be meaty!*

After dinner, we continue our home furnishing hunting! There's this shop that sells King Koil stuff at Jurong East, we've been there twice before and we saw a nice dining table. This is one of the dining table that we BOTH like and we think that it's nicer that the rest that we've seen before, so we went there for the THIRD time today and finally booked the dining table! *YAY! I have a new dining table!!*

And then I was reading this home design magazine and found a link to Winkplay which is basically a decal for walls, it's like an easy to remove kind of wallpaper and it comes in many many unique designs. It seems like a very cool idea.. going to check out the designs soon, they have shops at Marina Square and Raffles City :)

And so we're officially moving some stuff there on the 19th! Actually I think this is kinda lame.. we're moving items on that day because his parents said it's a good day to move.. so we going to move pails of rice, broom, etc.. I dun care lah, as long as can move very good already! :D
