2016 is coming to an end. Soon we will be ushering in 2017. Have you guys thought about what you've done in 2016?

For today's post, as per last year's, I'm going to "throwback" major events (good and bad) in my life in 2016! Here are my 4 Major Things That Happened To Me in 2016!

1. Had such a nasty renovation nightmare.

For those who know, we had such a huge reno nightmare that dragged over 17 weeks. Lesson learnt: Some friends can't be trusted. Especially if they tell you that they don't need to have your quotation in full details. We trusted a supposed friend who basically was a bastard thru and thru. Lies were spun. But because we didn't want to be calculative and asked for everything to be in details (like he told us can trust him with his quotation that did not have measurements), we really had to pay a huge price. Basically trusting him means we have no evidence to prove what he said. After everything, we found out how a few other friends were also screwed over. Oh well, huge lesson learnt!

Karma will bite the asshole in the ass. By the way, quality renovation my ass. Our shower screen shattered in less than 6 months, show cabinet laminate bubbled, painting cracked. If you do need a recommendation for a nightmare renovation with bad quality, let me know. I can point you in the right direction. Terrible Killer Hawrible experience indeed.

2. Finally moved into #nadskaihome after Chinese New Year.

After all the nonsense, we finally moved in after Chinese New Year. We only managed to keep the place clean and well, Pinterest worthy till Aidan was born. After baby, the place is a huge nightmare. OH MY TIAN.

We love having a place of our own. Cooking, watching movies, enjoying time together. While Punggol does need time getting used to, I have begun to love this ulu place. Only wished that my bff was staying closer to me so that I could see her as often as we were staying at our parents' place!

3. Got sucked into the cult of Tula and Ju Ju Be.

Being a mother opens up a huge world of shopping. Babywearing and diaper bags are like my life now. It's crazy. Mad crazy. It's easy to get so addicted coupled with the fact that I'm such a huge Tokidoki lover in the first place, I'm totally suckered. Needless to say, had to drag a few good friends down with me. Hurhur.

4. Never knew that I had so much love to give.

While having a gremlin child was never in my plans, I guess it's different once it's yours. (Gosh, I sound so hypocritical). It's more forgivable when it's yours I guess? HAHAHA. I love watching Aidan grow. I gape in wonder at his milestones. I smile and coo when he does the silliest things. My heart feels like it's going to burst whenever I wake up to his smiles. Needless to say, I worry too. I guess like my gynae mentioned, you'll never stop worrying as a parent.

That's the 4 Major Things That Happened to Me in 2016. How was yours? I'm looking forward to 2016! Hope FINALLY we can get our home ready!

I would love to thank everyone for being supportive of www.nadnut.com. You've followed my journey from the frivolous camwhoring days to getting engaged to losing weight to planning for my wedding to my honeymoon exploits to getting pregnant to giving birth and now having Aidan! I have never regretted blogging as I loved sharing my experiences. It's more of a Nadia's Lifestyle Blog rather than a Singapore Lifestyle Blog. LOL.

I wished that I have more updates to share but unfortunately my renovation has been at a standstill for the past 3 weeks.

Thong Nian Pte Ltd

It should have been handover-ed by now but carpentry has yet to even commence. I don't wanna say much at this stage but I really hope that my freaking carpentry commences soon.

It's the start of week 9 but the end does not seem near at all. Oh well. To happier and more updates soon, I hope. Renovation woes indeed.

Feature wall in progress. Lol. Love showing little sneak peeks!

 

Painting in progress! Only first coat done.

Our contractor was pretty insistent on using outdoor paint as he feels that it's long lasting and easy to clean.

So ok lor.

 

We mainly chose white walls save for one wall which will be grey. Thinking of either stripes or chevron or triangles in a brighter colour for the bedroom.

Stripes seems to be the safer choice. Dunno if my contractor can pull it off lol

 

We filled in a recess in our mbr... Found it very unsightly plus hard for us to put our bed. So we filled it up with bricks and cement... Smooth smooth liao!

Waiting for drawings for the configuration of our wardrobe and TV console. Progress has been slow this week.

Hope there will be more updates soon! In a meantime, we need to choose our mattress and bedframe soon!

As some of you guys may remembered, I shared some updates on #nadskaihome. One being a piece on tips on shortlisting your prospective contractor or interior designer and the other being my defects check at my new BTO.

For those who have been following my BTO journey, I finally have some updates!

In the end we decided on using a contractor. We had a really hard time deciding between an interior designer that we really liked and a contractor friend. In the end, we went with the contract as costwise, it was much more affordable for us.

That being said, there were lots of delays due to certain reasons (which I will share in the later part of my renovation journey).

We've finally commenced and hopefully things will go on smoothly. These are some of the things that we'll be doing.
