2. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to hunt down a childcare that had immediate vacancy for Nuryn. None near our place but I was lucky enough to get one near my office. The fees are a killer but we were desperate. The curriculum and teachers are awesome though. Kiddo’s picking up Mandarin while she’s there. Did I mention the fees are insane?
3. I now have another 6 years to get over that incident. Wawasan 2020. Heh.

A fellow colleague assumed I was an intern. LOL. Either I look super inexperienced or just young. I opt for young.
Hi Nana!! :)

I miss skiving but my new job seems okay so far.
Since my last entry, a bunch of stuff happened. In a cute summary, my house renovation journey has ended and so has my SAHM stint.

I finally left my contract stint. Yeay. I've been aggressively sending out resumes, diligently going for interviews but nothing good so far. I was offered a position but the location and how the recruitment agent was lying made me turn down the offer. Just being a little choosy this time round.
Renovation is still ongoing at a comfortable pace. But here's how my tiny 4-room unit looks like pre-renovation.

|Grey, matte tiles. We initially chose pretty glittery bronze tiles but they were out of stock. Sad.|
|Permit that was required for the hacking.|
|Bye, bye wall!|

After we received the amended quote, we headed to RHB to get a renovation loan. Even if I had $40K in my savings, to throw it all at once would hurt unless there's a 0% instalment plan. Also, I don't have $40K. Side note, that's not the renovation amount.
This morning, diL informed me of the approved loan amount. $28,500. Now to revise the quote further. Kinda a good thing though. The lesser the amount, lesser debt.
So, first up on the renovation - choosing tiles this Saturday. ^_^
Okay, back to checking out reno-guy's previous designs.
