Kitchen renovation

June 2, 2011

A friend had her new kitchen installed last week and I was there to help her tidy up. She actually had the old kitchen thrown away, the floors redone and the walls repainted before the installation. It was not an easy thing for her, she’s been contemplating on having the kitchen redone since last year but financial constraints has been bothering her. So I told her to read this renovation advice from My Hammer, a guide on why it is wise to increase the value of one’s home. She did read the article and later on decided to buy a new kitchen.

She was happy with the outcome. The people sent over by the kitchen company were professionals so we expected nothing less from them. I do think giving attention to the value of one’s home is beneficial in the long run. You can’t be sure you’ll stay or will have to move again so in case you want to sell your property, you don’t lose much.

We tested the new stove immediately. *teehee* We made spring rolls with ground beef, minced carrots and potatoes and herbs. All cooked to a golden brown.

We also made Apfelstrudel. It’s the easiest we can bake for that day.

Since it was a Monday I had to pick up the kids at 1 PM and went back to my friend’s place. We all had late lunch together. The kids always love being there, there’s a smallΒ  playground just outside. I let them play by themselves which makes them really happy. I anyway can see them from the balcony and can easily tell them to stop being naughty lol.

We’ve scheduled a small get together to test the ovens again hihi. Can’t wait for next week.
