This is not my kitchen.

Nope, not even close but that’s what we’re aiming for. Hopefully it’ll work ;)

# – Not our kitchen.

Upstairs are 95% done, only left installation of toilets and bathroom sinks. But am not satisfied with the finishing work so far. Time to crack the whip!! They say the most headache inducing bit of a renovation is making sure that the finishing is flawless. Contractor doesn’t have the eye for detail like an owner does so it’s very important to keep an eagle eye on them no matter how awkward it feels.

Anyway my streamyx is still down but I’m tethering my Garmin Asus A10 so it’s not bad anymore. By the way am blogging from my A10 now. Android is unbelievably awesome! Didn’t like the touch screen so much but with this SlideIT app its even faster than typing on a real keypad! I think it’s a great alternative to SWYPE for those who have no access to it yet.

# – SlideIT ftw.

My blackberry has been relegated to the graveyard of phones temporarily as I just couldn’t tether it. Pretty sure it’s Digi’s blackberry service problem and not my phone since it did work for one whole afternoon last week. Oh well!

That said, kudos to Digi for trying its best to help me (calling me almost everyday to follow up and assist with multiple solutions). I am positive no other telcos would be able to show that level of customer service.

So yeah, my week is getting marginally better. Will continue to have positive thoughts and good will.
