Updates: Concept of our house

An update to the concept of our house.

Living Room
After reading up more on Feng Shui, I realised there are other remedies for direct alignment of main door and windows. So I decided not to build a 屏风 at my entrance. I will instead use the round dining table and a round ceiling lamp above the dining table to slow down the flow of 'chi' in my house.

We will still put a shoe cabinet and a bench near the entrancee. I found these pretty benches sold in Qoo10.

And the fake ceiling of our living room, I want it to be curvy shape at the corners instead of 90 degrees angle corners, because Feng Shui don't like sharp corners. Lol..

For our kitchen, after studying our floor plan, we cannot use the picture I posted in my previous post already la. Our kitchen is rectangular in shape and at the other end, there's a door to the service yard and 2 very ugly panels of windows (one set on each side of the door). The power point and water pipes are already fixed by HDB. So we can only do our kitchen cabinet on one side of our kitchen. Nearest to the service yard will be the sink, above the sink, we'll build a dish rack (for drying of the dishes) cabinet.

Next to the sink will be the stove, above the stove will be a open exhaust fan (with the pretty steel one la), and some lights attached to it so there'll be lights shining when we cook.

Next to the stove will be the kitchen cabinets for storage with table top, we want to have hanging kitchen cabinets as well, and install lights at the bottom of the hanging kitchen cabinets to make the table top brighter.

Opposite the kitchen cabinet will be our fridge and we should be putting a table beside the fridge.

Walk-in wardrobe
We read online that open concept walk-in wardrobe will cause the clothes to attract dust and moisture. So, we will get a nice wardrobe with door instead la.  We will put the wardrobe along the length of the room (away from the door side), my dressing table will be opposite the wardrobe and near to the windows. I intend to put some nice benches in the walk-in wardrobe room as well. Benches like the one I mentioned above will be good.

Just realised that HDB has already installed the toilet bowl, basin, shower head, floor tiles and wall tiles for us. The wall tiles, shower head and floor tiles are really ugly. They also installed the old school drainage (the one with many holes and in pale yellow color) for us. I think it will be a major overhaul for our toilets. I don't want the old school drainage, I don't want the wall tiles, the floor tiles and the shower head. Haiz, dunno how much is the overhaul of the 2 toilets going to cost us.

That's our plan for now. When we get the keys, I will go and study the directions of our house and apply the Feng Shui theories I learnt online. Lol.. Till then I will decide on the colors of each area and the material used for the kitchen cabinets etc.

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…
