The house. - Narcissism is Necessary

The house.

As some of you might know, we’ve just bought a double-storey terrace house in Bandar Sri Damansara. We’ve lived here in BSD for the past 5 years and have grown to love the quiet neighbourhood, the various good food nearby and its accessibility to NKVE, MRR2, LDP & Penchala Link without being too near to high density areas. Of course, it helps that Papa Rich is also opening right at our doorstep and there’s always a nice, clean park in Desa Park City to walk emoCharlie. All we need now is a 24/7 KFC and we could count ourselves jackpot winners.

Anyway, it was a very stressful time for us buying the house because of rogue agents and ill-informed owners. One of the reasons we were in so much pain was also because we were only focused on one residential area. We did check out places like USJ, Kelana Jaya, SS24 etc but in the end we realised that we had been looking everywhere but home.

Long story short, we popped up early this morning to have a final inspection of the house with the property agent. We’ll be getting the keys tomorrow. Been dreaming about this for years and finally it has materialised :)

Credit is where credit due, my bf is the one that has been working diligently towards getting our first home and this is really all his doing. I’m very, very, very proud of my man. Neither of us are from rich families but we’re living a pretty damn comfortable life all because of my babyboo. You’re my rock and I love you so much. I’ll let you play more badminton lor…

As for me, the only think I’ve probably contributed is a lot of bitching about our current apartment. Heh, seriously I don’t even know how I managed to land myself a gem like him.

So some snapshots of the place before we transform it into our humble abode.


The living room now. Must.get.rid.of.floor.tiles.


Jungle at the back of the house.

This is a 13 year old house and needs a lot of work. We’ve got so much ideas about what we want to do with it. Wiring, roofing, tiles, flooring, walls, landscaping the little garden…I’m so excited!

    Decorating is fun for about 1 week and then it just gets super stressful and involved you clashing heads with your 60 year old gay interior decorator, and your incompetent apartment decorators who install the ugliest carpet known to man kind thanks to your mother who now regrets her decision but decides to slash the furnishing budget by half, and then moving furniture from what suburb to another in a car not designed to move furniture so you have to pay AUD$200 for movers OKAY I’M SORRY I’M IN HELL hahahaha I love you, Kim, all the best and have fun! :D

    I moving into my house soon after staying for 3yrs in high-rise (1.5yrs in apartment and 1.5yrs in condo) while shifted 2 times in between.

    Damn it feels so good to be moving into your own landed property. I can totally feel your excitement reading this post.

    Yea congrats on the smart move as yours must have appreciated a lot by now!
