HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR!
|The old kitchen|
|Where the old fridge was|
|And where I had my washing machine|
After all that, I think I'm qualified to pen a little book on what to do and what not to do when your apartment is being renovated with you still in it.
First up, get ready for lotsa dust. Tons or volumes or whatever metric system they use to measure it, of dust will decent on every square millimeter of your apartment. Especially if you need to demolish your old kitchen. Remember that sandstorm scene in the latest Mission Impossible movie? That was a beach party compared to the scene in my apartment during the first two days of demolition work.
One of my biggest bugbears was not accounting for the extra space needed when you open a cupboard door or even the refrigerator door in my case. Bottom line is there will changes and there's not a damn thing you can do to prevent it.
Fortunately everything turned out ok, cutting it really close to the Lunar New Year. I'll post the completed pix in my next post. Meantime some interesting food finds in time for the celebratory period.
On the left, you got Creamy Pineapple Tart ice cream flavor from the best ice cream parlor on the island, Creamier. Every flavor they got is full of rich and natural ingredients, the Pineapple Tart has even got them little bits of tart crusts in it. Wanted to get a tub but they didn't have enough to fill one up, yes, that's how popular it was!
The Limited Edition Winter's Tale Sapporo beer on the right, where else but Meidi-Ya can you find something like that. <^;^>
