A rough concept of our house..

Recently there're a lot of updates about our Seng Kang BTO on the Facebook page. Some have news from reliable sources that we might be able to receive the letter in Dec or Jan. Many of them have already started sourcing for IDs and shopping for furniture. But we, being in Italy, couldn't do any of these. The most that we can do is to surf Courts and Ikea websites to look for furniture ideas and using the Homestyler program to roughly draw out the plan for our house.

So here's the 2D image of the rough idea we have for our house. We're keeping the renovation simple and splurge on buying beautiful furniture.
Home in Living Room, Family Room, Bedroom, Office Room, Bathroom, Kitchen
Living Room
We want a sky blue and white theme for the living room. So we intend to paint one side of the wall sky blue while the other walls remain white color, and to hang a huge painting on the wall as decoration. We should be getting white Sofa and TV console. For the curtains and carpet, I hope I can find sky blue ones. I want to put one or two floor cushion or bean bag to make the living room more cosy. Then there's also the coffee table and dining table and chairs, these will fill my living room.

We want to put a built-in shoe cabinet with a 屏风 or some other designs near the main door. Because according to feng shui, if it's a straight line from your main door to the big window, then you need something tall enough in between to block it. Hubby wants to put a small bench beside the shoe cabinet too. But all these have to see if we have ample space la.

I got a sample picture that I wanna copy. Nice?

Master Bedroom
Hmm. Initially, I want my bedroom walls to be pink color. Hubby is also okay with pink but I scared pink bedroom 招桃花 so I need to check about feng shui first before I decide on the color. I think some cute couple wall stickers on the walls as decoration will be sweet and cute. Anyway, our bedroom will just have a queen size bed, 2 night tables, a small cabinet and a lazy chair. No TV, no wardrobes. Simple, nice and conducive eh. Lol..

Walk-in wardrobe
We will convert the room nearer to the master bedroom into a walk-in wardrobe, but not a built-in one. So that it's open to changes in case we want to use that room for other purpose in future. My dressing table will also be in this room. So, we will be shopping for wardrobe that dun have doors! I found this in Ikea''s brochure and I think it suits us well.

Study room
The other room shall be our study room. Just a long table to put 2 computers, and a book cabinet will be all for this room. Oh, hubby wants to put a world map wall sticker as decoration.

No idea for toilet yet. Just a toilet bowl, a sink and a shower area. Okay, that's 废话!

Yup, so that's about it for the rough concept of our house. Oh, the lighting. For the living room, we'll have fake ceiling at the sides and corners to install the spot lights. In the middle of the living room and at the dining table, we'll have a lamp fixed on the ceiling. For bedroom, just fake ceiling at the sides and corners to install the spot lights is enough. The other rooms, kitchen and toilets, we'll just use normal lighting lor.

We're now looking online for reviews on good and reasonable-priced IDs and contractors. One of our shortlisted ones is D'Trenzo. Any other recommendations or comments about IDs and contractors are welcome!

My Favourite Salon: Govin Hair @ KSL City Mall

Do you have the same problem as me? Want to dye, perm, rebond or do treatment for your hair but after looking at the price of the established hair salon in Singapore you just wanna shake head and walk away from the salon.

Lucky for me, I found a good, cheaper hair salon with excellent service and experience just across the Straits! At KSL City Mall at JB!

I had gone thrice and I was very happy with my every experience there!

My first and third time there was for hair and scalp treatment and they were really good! The scalp massage was so comfortable, I literally could fell asleep while they worked on my hair! The most special experience was during the wait at the hair wash area. They provided aroma therapy there by dripping some lavender essential oil into the hot water and I nearly slept.

My second time there was to colour and cut my hair. Oh my! Their hair colour has no ammonia smell at all and I love it! Previously, whenever I colour my hair at other hair salons, the colouring has …

Mucota Omega Rebonding at Focus Hairdressing

I initially wanted to try out volume rebonding at some Korean hair salon in Singapore but the price was really expensive, around $350 for my hair length and I was told that the effect was just like soft rebonding, except that it gives the hair more volume. For my hair length, the hairstylist usually will recommend me to perm the ends to have the romantic Korean feel. But I know I will be lazy to maintain the curls. So I dropped the idea. 

I saw many good reviews online for mucota rebonding at Focus Hairdressing. It's located at Cuppage Plaza Level 1 which is just 5 mins walk from Somerset MRT. I have previously tried mucota hair treatment at Creme Hairdressing (Chinatown Point outlet) and I really love the treatment effect. You can read about my mucota treatment experience at Creme Hairdressing. So i decided to try out Mucota rebonding.

I originally planned to take the mucota dyna hair rebonding since it is the cheapest kind of mucota rebonding that Focus offers, it's only $200 …

Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment at Creme Hairdressing

It has been a long time since I last did treatment and color to my hair. It's to a stage where I already cannot stand the frizziness, dryness, ugly color of my unkempt hair.

I was thinking of rebonding my hair to straighten my anyhow curl fringe and to solve the frizzy hair problem, but I was afraid that my hair will be too flat and look unnatural. I researched online and came across Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment. After some research, i realised the price of this hair treatment charged by some salon for my hair length could go up to $200+ to $300, and I definitely do not feel like spending this amount of money just for the hair treatment.

While surfing on Groupon one day, i saw this.

$108 for Mucota Dyna Hair Treatment for any hair length. I bought it immediately and arranged for an appointment. Over the phone, the hairdresser told me that the time required for this treatment is around 3 hours.

The lady who attended to me was Celine, she was from Taiwan. She was quite nice and gentle…
