Our living room is now in a mess. That was the hubs' words when he called me earlier; and I could hear all the grilling and hammering sounds over the phone while we were talking. Don't get me wrong, we aren't moving into a new house. It is just that we hear hollow sounds whenever we knock onto some affected floor tiles, and we are worried that as the years goes by, these tiles will crack or 'pop-up' one day. In fact, that happened to some of our neighbours and they had to report the case to the relevant authority to get it fixed.

So for the past few days, we have started to clear all the furniture and other stuff into our study room and guest room, as well as having the curtains removed. We have moved the TV console to the kitchen, as the rooms are occupied with the sofa, a coffee table, a foldable dining table, a CD rack, and even a detachable bar counter. Phew! So now our common meeting place is at the guest room! LOL. I think the overall 'renovation' works will take about a week, so the hubs and I are taking turns to stay home for the 'supervision'.

We are quite satisfied with the sample tile which the authority had shown us some time ago, as it is much bigger. Hopefully there won't be any faulty tiles once the old ones have been removed! And right after next, I have to worry about the mess we have to clean up after the workers are done with the works!!!
