windows n sliding doors at last!!!

Here's a shot of the main man himself stadin on a mound in front of our hse.. sighs.. it's been a long time coming but finally the sliding doors n the windows r in. they r not up to white man's standards, so i can foresee a long list of complaints which will go to the contractor soon. ah well, me? i'm just glad we hv some protection from the horrendous winds n rains that have been hittin us lately... all we need now before we can move in is the electrics done, water connected to first floor (we hv water in all the pipes downstairs so that wont be rocket science right!??!?!) and then i can start installing curtain rails n curtains n air/cons n such.. i cannot wait to move in but it's really taking longer than expected so both martin n i r at the fingernail biting point.. soon we wont hv any left to chew on!!!!

in case you're wondering, its a very simple square house, 40 by 40 ft inside.. but with balcony its 52 by 48 ft. 1 master bedroom, 2 guest rooms, 1 nursery, 1 study, 1 kitchen, 1 living room plus dining area, 3 toilets, a 20 by 20 den downstairs for fishing stuff (but of course!) and studio 20x20 ft beside it. so when it's done, come one, come alll!!! between real beds and blow up beds and sofa beds, we could probably house 20 adults and 10 children.. haha.. lol.. i dunno, we hv yet to see if that's possible!

This balcony is were we'll put a comfy settee and maybe a mahjong table! hahah...its facing the river and on a clear morning, you'll even be able to see mt kinabalu in the distance.. gosh, i'm really counting the days now! one fine day i'll be servin cocktails on my balcony n we'll we sittin n laughing till the sunset disappears before hvin a delish bbq for dinner! cant wait cant wait!

anyway, ashley, doria and pat are three ppl really into house renovation right now, so i can associate with their euphoria and excitement of pimpin up my crib! it will take a lot of money, sweat n trial n errors before it gets perfect but i guess that's the joy of it. it will always be a work in progress and the day it's perfect is the day i stop being picky cos in reality, nothing will ever be 100% perfect right? that's life! ;-)

so exciting to see it almost complete at last! definitely want to go there to visit and will bring Ryan along as well. He doesn't remember anything about Sabah and is fiercely adamant that he's never been to Aunty Drey's house. Can't wait to see it. Btw, why don't you check the prices and measurements for curtains before coming over then you can order from here if the prices/choices are better.

as for curtains, ash,... i've already put the deposit on them and chosen the materials, they called to say it's ready to be installed but the house is still a bit of a mess inside, n no runnin water n electric.. so better get that done first kan! hehehe.. bring ryannnnnnnnnnnnnn! bes loves all 'fliends'! esp her bf from west malaysia! hehe!
