I have no more idea on what to blog… so let’s talk about my newly renovated bathroom.
My home’s bathroom underwent a major makeover recently. Among the changes are
1. The demolition of my favorite water tub. Favorite because I have many scary and happy memories with the water tub. I’ll spare you from the long narrative. Like modern household, we’re using a plastic tub now.
2. Replace bathroom floor tiles with new one.
Now the problem is this particular 1-man worker did a very bad job when he was laying the new tiles. My mom informed him regarding the unevenness condition but he ignores my mom. The result? There’s a large swelling at the middle of our bathroom floor. The ‘used’ water is trapped at a corner and cannot flow out into the drain hole.
So this worker came back a week later, knock down a few tiles and reconstruct it back. Now the middle floor is perfect BUT there are sharp edges near the drain hole location due to ‘outrageous’ unevenness!!!
So again this guy came back a week later, knock down a few tiles and reconstruct it back. Now everything is perfect EXCEPT that there are a few chipped tiles. My mom said “Nevermind la”.
Ohgosh I so hate it man! Every time when my mom ask someone that she knows eg. contractor friend to help renovate our house… surely something will go wrong. Another example is our porch. Cement all cracked!
I just wanna ask you guys, do you hire people you know to renovate your house? What I think is if you hire someone you know, they will more likely to simply renovate it for you coz ‘friend-friend la’… anything anyway also can. So I prefer to hire someone I don’t know.
Boring story? There goes another day.
