Jared: Stand like this, mom? Like this? Am I blocking the light?
I am a virgin as far as having a house renovated so, when the ID guy called and said, "Miss ah, we gonna start working on your house this week ah", I was over the moon. My heart rate went up anticipating some brilliant transformation at the end of the day. It's sort of like having someone tell you, "Your spaceship is going to be ready to travel around the galaxy this week, do you want to come in and take a look?"
Anyway, this overexcited momma grabbed the kids, grabbed the camera and headed off to take a couple of pictures of the new place before they started work....I kinda wanted to have the 'before' and 'after' thing done as well, you see.
When we got there, I was surprised by 'sparing' they are with their language in terms of giving instructions to the workers. I was expecting something along the lines of a detailed drawing and then careful instructions like, "Gently tap on this part of the wall according to drawing".
But what I saw was this....
"Pecah sampai jumpa beam" - Explode (???) until you see the beam....what if they don't see the beam and knock past the beam? Then what? Ack! Can't they, like....give very specific measurements or something...like 'demolish 3.754ft of this wall from this point on'?
And then on the floor, they have this....
"Tembak semua file" - Shoot all files ??? Shoot? Not extricate? Not remove? Not peel? Not lift?
I think it's got to do with the 'weapons of destructions' that they use. In the case of the flooring, I think they're using some sort of GUN? Those in the renovation industry, please enlighten me. Anyway, can't wait for some miraculous transformation to the place....the rooms are so damn kow small, to call it 'store room' is being nice liao, so, I want to see the kids' room much, much, much, MUCH larger than the sardine can that they are now.
And for crissakes, we don't need half the apartment for the kitchen. As it is, the dry kitchen is already bigger than the master bedroom, the wet kitchen is even bigger. So, the dry and wet kitchen is already 5/8th of the place, right?
Anyway, can't wait.
