Summer Friday 2016 – No. 2

I went to IKEA Alexandra with two of my editors.


We were shopping around for new office decor. We moved into our new space last month. It’s kind of a bare space, so we were given a little something to do something about it.

***

For the office, I got myself a Kvart desk lamp. I like mood lighting.

For my new place, I got:

  • A laundry drying rack (expandable, perfect for the condo balcony)
  • A hanging dryer for socks and underwear (the one that looks like an Octopus)
  • A laundry flexible basket
  • New bedsheets… A MUST (I can’t go on using old things can I?)
  • An IKEA memory pillow – firm type
  • An IKEA softer pillow to compliment the firm one
  • One more HOLMO lamp bringing my amazing collection to FOUR.
  • New quilt cover, a green one with stripes… green reminds me of RENEWAL.

Took a cab from IKEA Alexandra to my place in Geylang… and daaaaaymm it set me back by almost SGD 20.00. Argh.

For dinner I tried the corner coffee shop and ordered Salted Fish Fried Rice. I was eating it by myself and still trying to get used it. Sigh.
