Alhamdulillah it's a beautiful weekend! We had two interesting projects to share here:)
Yes! Our Cubby House is finally here;) mama is equally super excited:):)
We came back from piano class and found the cubby house already in the garden! Wahhh look at our little blue window,we can see the white flower from here.
After much deliberation,imagination,discussion mama has decided to place the cubby house under the tree.Location is important in order to ensure that the cubby house wont' take much space and decrease our limited garden.
Wahhh we got a cute planter's box:) mama loves it!
Yeahhh our first tea in the cubby house.
Pokya painted the wall pink and we are delighted.
Now we have moved all our favourite toys inside here.
A little white house with blue window and rooster on the roof!
With cute little girl in it:)
Mama said she loves to see children having fun;) maybe there's still a 'little girl' in her;)
The cubby house is just right there and didn't take so much of our space.
Now mama can have her tea near 'our house".
I love my cubby house;)
Presenting the designer and the contractor Pokya and his lovely daughter:)
Ha ha see who's visiting us at night in our cubby house:) It was uwan! and she took a nap in our litlte house too;)
Papa was excited too:) He bought us dynamo light from ikea:) Do you know whar is dynamo light? It's a light without battery, you just need energy by turning the leaver many many times:) So it is perfect for night time in the cubby house:)
Our sweet papa was so worried that we might get hungry in the cubby house :)he came and fed us with his The Baker's Cottage sandwich:)
Papa we love you very very much!
Yesterday when we played in the cubby house mama and papa left us and went to Ikea;) Hmmm they going to make over our wet kitchen today:) This is before the make over ,Heni has put aside all the things.
Mama and Papa called it a "Budget make over" as the cost was very minimal,they just purchased paint and few knick knacks from Ikea.Our wooden wall at the wet kitchen had been painted dark brown since day one!Mama decided to give more colours and make it brighter this time.She was contemplating between country blue or mango green.
She finally decided on mango green which turned out to be good as it makes the wall brighter.
Mama changed the decorative sticker for the tiles.She kept some unused items in the store and threw some old items.
The area is not big and mama spent a lot of her time here so she needs a comfortable space;) When she has time she will change the table cover too.
Mama loves her new wall colour as it makes her things look brighter.
Only things she really use is hang here,no display or unecessay items.
And she has all her spices on the small rack too.She didn't buy the small bottles from ikea but it was door gifts from kenduri and others.
We had extended or dry kitchen to the maximum last time so this is the area left for wet kitchen.The limited area is now use for laundry activities too, mama has to place the things properly so that it won't be cluttered.Mama has to monitor Heni too as she like to store all unecessary things there like dried mango,chili,papaya seeds,bottles,kain buruk etc.
Mama bought this plastic storage for RM9.90 from Ikea,quite cool isn't it.
Mama keeps a pot next to the kitchen too so that any old onion or garlic can be planted in it.
Mama recycled old containers as plant pot and hanged it on the wall.
Even the place is not big but there's some space for Heni to fold clothes or sit down after doing the laundry.
Wahh mama got brighter wet kitcen now and it can be seen from our dining! And that's Heni at the back;)
And you know what? we have decorated our cubby house with some new items too:) mama bought us a pink mirror and we took some stickers from mama kitchen and stick it on our cubby house wall.
Mama used her pareo as our blue curtain and we love it!
Evening mama served ubi kayu rebus,sambal tumis and eggs for tea.All the adult said the ubi were really nice, i saw papa eating 2 plates of it..but we just stick to our coco crunch:) P.s Kak Rose Penang,how to make super nice teh tarik? mama only used condensed and evaporated milk after that she tarik2 in the glass,is that right?:):)
After eating the ubi rebus,mama served uwan hot sup tulang to uwan under the pokok sena in our garden.While seating under the pokok sena uwan pun berpantun- "Buai laju2 sampai pokok sena,apa dalam baju sekuntum bunga cina"
It was a great evening today:) good food and good time with all the people we loved:) Now we understand the term "sanctuary" that mama been talking about,we don't need to go far to fimd happiness as it is just right infront of our eyes;):) Mama said must always thank Allah swt for all the things that Allah gave;) Alhamdulillah!
