D HOME

Yeah, my house.

It's all began with Xiang helping her friends to look for a house in the condo I lived and there we came across with this agent. And that was about 2 months ago...

That time, the rental contract of the unit I lived-in previously is about to end in end of Sept, so it's either we continue to rent for another year, or we moved out. Ofcoz we've been planning to buy a house and doing some research from time to time. So when Xiang introduced the agent to her friend, we asked her to show us some available units as well.

Then she recommended us to this house. It is the largest among the 3 type of unit in this condo, and is selling out at a lower price. Why? Because this house was rent out to some irresponsible tenants that pissed of the owner. They didn't pay for their rentals, water bills and even electricity... and messed up the house so bad. Eventually the owner has no choice but to bare the overdue bills himself after rejected them out. Next, is to sell the house, cheaper.

And what coincidence, the owner is also from Kelantan. So samo-samo kelate, very easy to talk lah. Because we need to move in before Oct, he even agreed to give us the key before the bank loan is done, so that we can start the renovation straight away.

  10. Thank you all!!

    Although the process of design, planning, and organize the house was very tiring, but it's really fun. Plus after seeing all the nice words from you all, I feel really happy and all worth it.

    The best part to me of having my own house is, now I can nail and drill the wall at wherever I like! Yeah~~ haha...

    Don't forget to drop by when you're free. I don't have karaoke, but there's plenty of DVDs to watch... :P
