as of today i still have no dining chairs. i use my dove gray vanity chair in my living room as a stand-in. but it's proving to be an increased hassle, esp now O comes over at least twice a week and the idea of having a homecooked dinner is becoming more and more appealing. i'm quite frankly tired of eating out and waiting for food.. while usually we head for restaurants that do not require waiting, just the environment around is stressful and last thing we need is more added crap after our long days.

so i was at pricerite today and i saw these cheap dining stackable chairs:

cheap, white, stackable. my family's chairs won't be stackable... but much nicer. hm.

i broke my bodum

my beautiful francfranc x bodum died because of my stupidity, along with four of my water glasses. in simple terms i was too busy trying to yank the trash out of my trash can and subsequently, i slammed my head against my dish rack.

i'm here to report francfranc is not carrying new ones :(

i did find other things i want there though!

I think the white one will be great for my bedroom/living room during the winter months.

this will be great for magazine storage + extra seating + wine glass stool.

yes i live here

time sure flies. i've been paying mortgage and living in this little shoebox for 3 months now. wow.

so let's see how far my flat degenerated:

kitchen: a lot more dishes. on my second tin of earl gray now. i'm aware i'm out of paper towels.

my room:

a housewarming gift from Anthony. he first bought me a cushion but his dad used it, so he bought me this very sexy lamp instead.

these stuffed animals have sentimental value for me. i brought them back from toronto. i still didn't have a chance to get replacement curtains for the broken doors yet.

instead of hanging my laundry in my kitchen, i hang them in my bathroom instead.

my den/living area... still missing dining chairs, so i moved my vanity chair here

i sit on my coach instead of my chair of course when I watch tv :)

imperfect beauty

Marge mailed me a housewarming gift fron the but when it arrived in HK, it shattered into pieces. the poor candle holder became millions of pieces of green glass, save for 1 panel:

i am using it as a coaster now at work :)

because bigger is better

HSBC had a welcome offer for the tv. i bought this 40" HD-ready TV for a bit less than $9000. for the same amount of money i can buy a 32" TV in the stores.

but bigger is better, right?

islamic architecture never looked so good on HD terrestrial TV.

the only problem is i must keep this box for 7 days.

tough task for a small flat like mine.
