Yay! Shop shop shop

Ah, shopping has no longer become fun! - still, we are excitedly looking forward  to do more of it.  Such a human irony, I guess.  People like to shop and shopping has also become such a therapy to many.

New home owners tend to enjoy retail therapy.  Not to be used in a negative term, it is a period of transition - perhaps, it fills the anxieties and comforts any stress.

We start to realize that with so many choices, it comes with stress too.

Important to Chiauw, she wants us [and all her clients] to be well rounded and well informed.  That, when the renovation is completed, and when we look
back in the future, there will be no regrets.

The one thing that I like about Chiauw is her honesty and integrity in carrying out her professional duty.  She is bringing us to so many shops - not to get us to confirm purchasing of the items, but to get us be aware of the wide range of stuffs available.  We just need to tell her 'ah, this is nice and we want it'.  She will take note of them and will take care, through her contacts, to confirm the purchase later. 

So far, all the this is nice and we want it quotations have come back to us.  Still, she often says that she is not satisfied with the quotes and will outsource with few more from  other contacts.

We went to two big floor tiles suppliers - one in Changi South and another at Defu Lane.  We like the tiles from Changi South but they are dearer.  Chaiuw has forewarned us before our trip there.  We almost wanted to make a reservation for a particular tile.

Samples tiles from the shop in Changi South:

The Black tiles are being reserved by someone.

Not sure where we want these tiles to be in Reiki Sanctuary. We felt the black will be for the kitchen flooring but it will be too smooth and, hence, will be slippery.  Definitely, not a good idea as we grow older.

Other choices:

01.  Black wall and grey floor for MBR toilet
02.  Grey floor and white wall for guest toilet

Sample Tiles from Defu Lane:

Combo [choice A] for MBR toilet.
We may choose the black for our Kitchen provided there is a bigger piece.

Combo [Choice B] for MBR Toilet.
Gosh, it was not easy to find a black and white coloured tiles.  We spent more than two hours in each shop just to find the right black and the right white.

And the sourcing for tiles continues ....

The Kitchen Sink

Found this in one of the shop on our way home.  It is a must buy.  Chiauw approved it! and I like it very much!  Haha, looks like this is the only item, confirmed, and purchased.

Hmm, now the colour concept for kitchen - floor and cabinet, needs to change.

It is a big white ceramic bowl of 560mm x 905mm with depth of 255mm.
