Part 1: Property Virgin

I bought my first house when I was working in Langkawi back in 2014. I didn't really plan to buy property in Langkawi since my husband is in Puncak Alam. So, we're basically look forward to buy our home in Selangor/Putrajaya. 

But, I guess, it's my rezeki to get the opportunity to buy a house in Langkawi since it's actually an offer from my previous company selling their asset (house) at a very low price - it is one of staffs' privileges. 

After discussed with husband and my parents, they said "why not". So yeah, I bought that house as an asset and we're planning to make it as a homestay. Homestay in Langkawi? Ka-ching! ka-ching! ka-ching!

However, due to some unexpected circumstances that we have to use the 'modal'/money for other important things (priority-wise), we end up rent the house. 

After a year plus now, staying and living together with my husband in Selangor, my parents urged me to buy our own house instead paying the rent for RM900 per month. They see it as a huge waste of money to spend on rent. 

I do and totally agree with my parents (my mom specifically whom very persistent pushed me) to buy our own house but considering the house price in current market particularly in Selangor/Putrajaya area which is VERY VERY VERY high, I need more time to survey and ensure that we (hubs and I) not spending so much money for our dream home. 

So, there's one day the ad of 'selling-property' pop-up in my Facebook which surprisingly I found the price is within our budget. And as much as I thought it was nothing more than just a scam but still, I without delay filled the form given. 

And the day after, the agent called me.

He asked and gave us 3 days to pay RM10k for the booking fees.

RM10k!!!

RM10,000.00 to just BOOK that house!!! Otherwise, we'll going to lose it.

So, here are the tricks;
  1. Don't get panic
  2. Don't get over-excited
  3. Don't rush
  4. Don't fool yourself

We talked and shared with lots of people (i.e.: family, friends and of course our neighbor too)

Apparently, it is not something unusual or strange to pay RM10k for the booking fees because it depends on the; 
1) house price and 
2) developer

So, what we did was; we went to the developer's office to get the confirmation and figure out either the project is truly exist. 

Fortunately, they do have the project and not launch it yet. (well, that supposed to mean - you have the ADVANTAGE!)

*Info sharing: The price before launch day is cheaper than after

After long discussion and talk with the developer, we somehow have agreed to buy that house. Gulp!

And now, we've gone through (not even half of the process yet) the following steps; 
  1. Choose/select the house lot - corner of course
  2. Pay the booking fees - RM10k to the developer by bank draft
  3. (After launch) Pay 10% deposit from the house price - which in our case, RM10k have deducted from the 10% deposit and just pay the balance of it. 
  4. Sign the S&P
  5. To receive S&P copies for the next step; to apply home loan. (And here, we are now)
....................

In the meantime, let's pray the process of our home loan goes smoothly and successfully approved. Aminnnnn.

so-called-retis

Lemme be honest to you.. When I first heard word of retis, it's sounds so bizarre and gross to me. Feel so awkward to pronounce and in fact, I dun even know the meaning. ngeee~ 
I only know the meaning of retis when a friend used 'that' word in twitter and I was like, "retis what?"
So, he told me that retis means artist. 
"Oooooookay... understand." *but still, sounds so GROSS!!  >.<
Makanya, saya telah membuat pengenalan mengenai maksud retis sebelum memulakan perenggan. 
*Motif guna perkataan retis sebagai Tajuk (da cakap GROSS sgt)?? - Sebab nak update adik-adik yang kurang memahami (seperti saya) ngan perkataan-perkataan terkini lg trending. Kita belajar sama-sama ea. hahaha.. 
So, talking about retis/artist, someone has boosted me up in FB which had lead to the feelings of "seperti artis sangat" *pukes*

So, I asked him for what reason he called me 'insan popular'??  And it had dragged to the reply-comment session;
Then he ga…

BTS: My Engagement Day

Aloha!!! 
I know it has been a while but here's a treat, Behind The Scenes (BTS) of my engagement day! ;)

22-12-12 is the date that I'm officially engaged to the man I wholeheartedly love, Incik Pensyarah. Alhamdulillah, the ceremony went so well; filled with the positive vibes, joy and incredible bond that everyone shares. 
Since pink is my favorite color (yeah, everyone knows that) I've came out with the idea of Princess theme. And of course, everything has to be in pink color! haha.. 
The Preparations

Canopies: Abah & Mama rented from Encik Razak - recommended by our relatives. Since it's an intimate ceremony attended by relatives and close friends, two canopies should be more than enough to accommodate about 200 people. It's a pyramid canopy with ceiling fan and decorated beautifully with pink-and-white scallop. 
Door Gifts: Mama wanted to give something meaningful and not to be wasted so, Yaasin is the best! Tapi takkan nk bagi Yaasin semata-mata right? Henc…
