Since we are a step nearer to purchasing our home (actually still a long way to go), it shouldn’t be too early to do some initial research into the design of the apartment.

The question, “What do you envision yourself to be in five years’ time?”, is a common one asked. When it comes to housing, the question then would be, “Can you envision your new home?”

I certainly can! I think I even know the colour combination! Of course, the more you read up, the more you can get confused too! An extra pair of eyes would definitely help and thus an ID would come in useful. Once we go through the 1st appointment, I’m ready to look for one. In fact, I have one in mind already. Hopefully, she is free to do mine.

Came across useful tips on colours from one of my favourite websites regarding home. I thought the content from the video series is rather informative, at least for me who know very little about such things.

The following is on Colour families. Go on and watch the others! I like the one on the 80/20 rule too.

 Which of the following hues do you like?






FFWD: Coconut-lemongrass-braised pork

Ok. I know I’m lagging wayyyyy behind the project. I don’t seem to be around on Friday to prepare the FFWD’s dishes! So, I’m trying to catch up now.

Had Coconut-lemongrass-braised pork for lunch. This dish pairs up well with rice. Didn’t add much coconut milk (even though the recipe calls for it) since I don’t quite like too strong a coconut milk taste. Think I didn’t choose the right cut for the pork. Should use pork butt but I bought lean ones since the latter was available in the market.

To buy or not to buy, that is the question

I think I had a similar title on my FB post recently about housing issues. To buy or not to buy, given the current economic situation. After weighing the pros and cons, we decided to buy and we are done with the Option to Purchase. Yay!

I’m attaching the news article which resonated with us. We have also considered the points listed by the reporter. Maybe this is another confirmation that we should buy?

In any case, our minds are set.

To buy or not to buy, that is the question.
