We finally got the keys to the apartment and it seems like every other apartments in our building have workers already doing the interiors (new apartment are sold at it's very basic over here, and all interior works are the owner's responsibility). It's interesting to peep in and see their layout because everyone got different styles and apartment sizes. Ours is only very small and we are doing the interiors ourselves. No, not envious...we're happy with our allotment as it is and are looking forward to all necessary work!
|Another visit to check the apartment progress|
This week, we started measuring the floor area so that we can get and calculate the materials we need to make it homey, like the floor and wall tiles, and other essential units and fixtures.
|measuring every little space we've got|
Because it's only a small apartment, we have to be very careful on how to make use of the space. Everything must conform to the size of the area... Oh, not so easy when you're given a set of limitation!!

Somebody is taking his time inside the bare apartment, so the girls went and explored the communal corridor. They saw a tall metal ladder leading to a roof window on the floor above us. They're not sure what it is for....I told them that because it is an apartment, there's no chimney for Santa Claus to come down to, and so the builders built one of this form instead.

Yeah, do you think the two teenagers took my story? They never even believed in Santa Claus when they were wee toddlers!! HA! HA! Anyway, I'm just reminded of the the time going very fast. The cool autumn season has already started over here...and yes, soon it will be the holiday season once again. YIKES! We must make good use of our time.
Wishing you a productive - with lots of good time this week.
