To all my friends celebrating Deepavali today,


It's a public holiday for us in the peninsular today,and I started it off with work :p Technically, at 12 midnight, I was still working on some presentation slides for my client, so.... :D But when I woke up in the morning, SRYY decided to make a house call!! To Sri Paandi's (PJ) cos they had open house :) So we were treated to Thosai, Roti Canai, Mee Hoon?, and free flow of teh tarik :D

So after breakfast (more like brunch), we headed over to Ikea to get my long awaited table :) Background info, since I moved to PJ, I've not had a table, and therefore had to do my work with my lappie either on my bed, on my lap, or on my mamut stool, either sitting on the floor, or on the bed. Needless to say, it was pretty uncomfortable and took up alot of space :/ So after the new Ikea 2012 catalogue came out, I saw this affordable Laiva table, and decided I should get it to ease my discomfort and also cos Yew was complaining that I definitely HAVE to get one  :)

Went to Ikea previously but they were out of stock for that particular table :( BUT new stock came in today, so I was beside myself with excitement when I saw one big pile of boxes in the Laiva desk section :) Special mention and thanks to Richard for helping me carry the box and bringing it to my car :D

Got to work the moment I got home, and decided to have some progress pics to assemble my primary school desk :)

This was how the contents looked like when I opened it. Initially opened it the wrong way up, so had to close it back and reopen it the other way round :p

It's called Laiva, but I have renamed my desk Lava. I have decided that the gender will be female, and Lava sounds darn exotic :D

I got so caught up assembling her that I totally forgot to take pictures until after i have settled the mainframe :p can you find Allan? :p

Voila! my beautiful desk fully assembled

In her little corner of the room, I did some housekeeping with the Internet wires as well, cos they were all over the place.

How she looks like after adding a few personal touches. My pictures are a must, my stationery, folder for papers,  and a designated spot for my lappie

In the end, after re-arranging some furniture, this is how she finally looks like, and she has a bookshelf to keep her company

If you look closely, you can see a collection of the various books I have accummulated since my two year stay in KL. Mind you, this is not the full show of the books I have...somewhere in the room are four more boxes of books that are still being hidden. So, this will be my sacred work space. Woe to anyone who dare trespass here XD

Reflecting on how I spent my holiday, I would say it was a day well spent. I managed to get my table, rearrange some furniture, cleared out useless stuff, and got a bit of work done.

Isn't my Lava beautiful? :)

P/S: James Blunt has some good songs :) Was listening to him while doing my work, and on an average scale of 1 - 10, I would say he would be a 7 :)
PP/S: Imma thinking of getting the Laiva Bookshelf next month (only four days away yay!) ...costs only RM75!!!! Only thing is, where should I put it???
