People who come to UAE for work would probably have shifted accommodation minimum 3 times depending on how long the contract is or in my case for an indefinite amount of time.
Those who are blessed with a good salary package also gets a good crib on top of that; some will have to allot part of their income to renting a flat and most survive by sharing space (housemates/ roommates).
Being that I moved into a new space recently, it was in my mind to already plan the essentials. Calculating every move. Which items I should take with me and which are the ones to go for storage.
It is a 3 x 3 meter room— what could fit in it?
These were my concerns:
Where my bed should be? Feng Shui much…. Do I need a bed?
Where to put my clothes in? Do I need a closet?
Is there space for toiletries?
What about my shoes?
I started with a rug. A smart purchase I believe because it was on sale, 50% off and on top of that it was the last piece- I asked the store manager to give me another 10%.
Then I found this charming and somewhat unusually fashioned sofa bed on Dubizzle for 300 Dirhams ($82).
This is when it dawned on me—i need pillows. Lots of them.
It’s kind of like a therapy; seeing an empty space with infinite possibilities, no matter what the size and then turning that space into something that can become home.
It has been almost a week now. I am adding little pieces every day. Most are my old stuff; some gifted.
And if there’s one thing I really enjoyed, those are the cheap buys from Daiso, Tchibo and Dragon Mart. I was on a mission and I can say I came out swinging.
Now I have to rest my soul as I begin to settle in because yeah my room has reached it’s limits.
Louise didn’t want a big party for her 18th birthday so I thought something simple and sweet will make her happy. Most of the stuff were bought from Daiso and then had them shipped in time for the small celebration back home.
Scheduled to premier on March 31, 2013, Game of Thrones season 3 is quite a long wait but definitely worth it I am certain. While waiting I am keen on experimenting with the following projects:
1. Crochet my way around- do some really nice pieces and sell it online
2. Bling it on- I have a good source for chic fashion accessories that I want to sell online
3. Comfy wedges- bought a few samples of the most comfortable wedges straight from the factory and yes I want to sell them online
4. For the not so skinny- just made a good deal with an importer who is willing to supply trendy loose clothes that I can sell online
Think..think…….anyways, yes “winter is coming” and I just finished this snood for my daughter Rain. She loves the color blue and the yarn ball I got has all shades. =)
