"Why is there a crack in the wall?" "Why is that tile not aligned properly?"

2. You'll hunt down even the tiniest of stains on your light coloured walls and paint over them yourself

3. You start applying everything in your home decor books and Pinterest boards in real life

But which theme to choose? Dilemmaaaa! 

4. For months now, you've been on the hunt for that one perfect sofa that feels JUST. RIGHT.

You don't even care when people give you weird looks at furniture stores.

5. Every time you’re out shopping you’re just thinking of buying more racks, hooks, knick-knacks, and space-savers

You have no idea what you'll ever do with some of the most random stuff like a cute handpainted Turkish plate or a pristine Venetian glass bowl but they're preeeetyyyyy and you just have to have them! *heart eyes*

6. And you can’t wait to show your friends how you organised your kitchen cabinets

You'll love getting to feel super bangga when your friends and family 'oooh' and 'aaah' over your extensive array of cookware, bakeware and crockery, as well as the magical drawer that houses them all.

7. You die inside when people don’t use coasters on your new coffee table =.=

Anyone who gets rings on your brand new coffee table will never be invited back again, hmph!

8. You’re looking to buy new household appliances and the latest gadgets because… why not?

From the latest robot vacuum, to the most canggih all-in-one remote that controls your entire house, you'll get 'em all as long as it helps make your life easier and as effort-free as possible.

9. You can't wait to finally be able to have people over for fancy dinner parties or even casual makan sessions :D

There's nothing you love more than spending time in the kitchen cooking up a storm for your loved ones. You'll use any excuse you can to get them over so you can test out a new recipe or try to perfect one you've been experimenting with.

10. When you’re out with your friends, you honestly can’t wait to get home and chill in your new living room

Who needs to hang out in a mamak or cinema when you’ve got a cosy living room and a new TV? Watching football or binge-watching movies will never be the same again!

11. You start child-proofing everything if you’re a parent #safetyfirst #coverallthecorners

You'll be doing everything from installing safety gates at the top and bottom of the stairs and putting child locks on cabinets, to blocking sockets and putting soft covers on sharp corners.

12. Thinking about your kids conteng-ing all over your pristine white walls makes you cry a little…

13. Planning your feature wall and playing around with 101 ideas keeps you awake at night

Your busy lifestyle has you mostly out of the house on weekdays, but you love coming home and unwinding in your perfect little spot. Such bliss.

Seeing your dream home come together bit by bit is going to be so satisfying isn't it? :')
