Weekend Recap

So...on Friday afternoon right after I finished work, R2 was already waiting for me in the parking lot. We then went to two different furniture store since we wanted to look around. We bought a lamp for the 2nd bedroom and I bought two carpets. :-D They were all on a discount HO HO HO HO HO HO...

It's funny when we were choosing the bedroom lamp. At first the shopkeeper showed us 6 lamps (she turned them on) and right away I fell in love with the one with leaf patterns. Then she showed us more than 20 other lamps. A few seconds later I said to R2, "I like that one with the leaf patterns back there."

The shopkeeper then asked us, "Is it getting confusing now that there are so many options?"

He then said to the shopkeeper right away, "We'll take that one."

LOL LOL LOL!!! That was FAST!!! It didn't even take 5 minutes to choose hi hi hi hi...What made me happy as well was the fact that I understood what she was saying to us. Even though I still can't understand every single word, but I understand the gist and it feels SO GOOD that I don't need a translator!!!

Anyway, then we started loading the boxes to our car. Remember that we live on the 3rd floor and the new apt. is on the 2nd floor. So it was quite an exercise!!! The temperature was -7'C but we were sweating like PIGS (that we are HA HA HA...)!!!

We unloaded all the boxes we had packed, so now our current apartment is no longer too chaotic. However, today we'll start packing more stuff he he he...Yesterday I showed the pics of our new apt. to my MIL and I'd love it for her to see it herself later on. After all, it's located very near a supermarket that she sometimes visits, so I'm sure she'll visit us someday.

Another funny thing happens between my MIL and I. Since Friday night, I had been craving for a cake to eat while drinking coffee, so Saturday morning we bought one before going to my MIL's place. When we arrived there, turned out she had made a cake earlier since she also wanted one! HA HA HA HA HA...

Moving to a new apartment is SO exciting for me, since this is the first time R2 and I can work together to "design" our new place he he he...Anyway, sorry if I can't still blog-hop and respond to comments as usual. I hope after we settle in our new apartment I'll have more time he he he...Take care, people! ;-D


  1. Oh yah, moving into a new place is indeed exciting but tiring too. Remember to rest too ok.

  2. I'm so happy and geniunely excited for you! Have fun with choosing the perfect furniture, you deserve it!

  3. So exciting. Good luck with choosing the furniture Amel.

  4. I am glad that you enlightened us on your selection of lamps.

    Also the term "sweating like pigs" is not very accurate as a pig only sweats through it's nose. A pig cools off by wallowing in the mud and I'm sure that you and R2 didn't do that.

  5. nice to hear everything about ur new place, Amel :D

  6. Oh ... moving house is tiring but definitely so very exciting!

    Happy Moving!

  7. Hi Amel,

    Congrats for your new place, and I wish you all the happiness in the world in your new home :)! May God Bless it, Bless both of you and Light up your home with His warm Energy!

    May a new phase begin! :D
