Hi, I can only managed to update this for today...been busy with the housework and adding to the kids were around as they conquered the computer to play games...this were not today's menu..frankly I also forgot when was this, but it was during those days that I didn't managed to update my blog...
Tomorrow will be busy too,a housing officer is coming to do a flood test to my common toilet, as our below neighbour has complained that our toilets were leaking!!!(both for master and common toilets..)..so yesterday and today the common toilet were closed..and we just used the other one...hopefully everything will be settled the soonest, without we have to revamp our both toilets!!!..anyway, will update and describe what really happened about this toilet thingy, which have been buggering me and Mr Hubby for the last few days...
