My room is taken over by cupboards, and I couldn't be happier.

One of the reasons why I was really excited to go back home was 'cause I couldn't wait to see my new closets!

The first sign that hit me that my room is going to look different is seeing my set of drawers downstairs near the living room! Seeing little Buddha 'patungs' placed on top of my usually accessories-strewn drawer-top sent me into a fit of giggles.

I pulled Jing's hand, and ran upstairs, letting out dramatic excited pants wtf. Jing ran after me, but kept on telling me, "Che, don't be so happy.. I am warning you.. There is not as much closet space as you think there is..."

But delirious with happiness of having a new home for my clothes, I waved her cautions away carelessly. With a big bang, I kicked the door open, and flipped the light switch with fluorish.

And the first word out of my mouth was:

"Oh. Fuck."

This was what greeted me! T___T

Jing warned me earlier that for the Ikea movers to install the wardrobes, mom and the maid just pushed all my stuff to one corner. But I didn't expect it to be so bad! T__T That's like 2/3s of my room, how to walk la.. T__T


But then I cheered up almost immediately, when I saw the new set of wardrobes! I turned around to Jing and told her with a strong face, "It can be done!"

And turned back to open my wardrobe to check out just how spacious it is.

And for the second time of the night:

"Oh. Fuck."

Freaking hell, both the cupboards already have clothes in them!!! My mom must have unpacked some of my stuff and hung them inside already!!! And that's when I really started panicking. Stricken, I asked Jing, "SHITTTT how weiii!! How to fit everything inside!!" and it took Jing half an hour to calm me down with soothing encouraging words (KAMU BOLEH!) wtff.

So there you had it, a warm bath later, at around 2am, you see Hui Wen determinedly slogging through her mountains of clothes, and Hoe Hui Jing lying on my comfy bed playing with the 72 new hangers that my mom bought for me.

It was really difficult! I couldn't decide how I wanted to categorise my clothes. Should I do it by colors? By types (skirts, dresses, tops etc)? By style (fancy, casual, emo wtf)? By ownership (mine, stolen from mom WTF)?

And the main objective of the night, besides to organise my clothes into their new homes, was to decide what I can't keep with me anymore! 'Cause face it, the only way I can get to the root of the problem for once and for all, is to just get rid of things. If I were to keep all my clothes, I think even another 2 new wardrobes might not do the trick. So I had to be TOUGH in determining what has to go!


Jing said I am very soft. T___T

Midway through organising.
Yes yes, the irony is not entirely lost on me. -_-

Remember the scene from Sex and the City the movie, where Carrie was moving out 'cause she sold her apartment, and she tried on her clothes for Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha to decide to keep 'em or trash 'em?? That was Jing's role for the night! Needless to say, I found a reason to keep almost everything. T_T Although Jing kept on telling me NO, I still clutched on to miniscule reasons ("but cargo pants could come back in style!") T__T

Then, at 5.20am I gave up. T_T (Actually at 5am I clapped my hands together, and proclaimed that almost everything is packed up, and was giving Jing a proud grin, when I noticed my red suitcase hidden amongst the plastic bags and boxes. T__T The red suitcase that was my de facto wardrobe for the past year.. T__T The moment I saw the suitcase, I was like "Fuck this shit" and promptly gave up wtf)

But I did manage to get some stuff organised! *proud*

Wardrobe 1.

Wardrobe 2.

I ended up categorising my clothes according to types! I thought I'd be able to fit at least 4-5 categories into the 2 closets, but mehh, just my jackets + cardies alone took up half of one wardrobe. And I have only unpacked from some boxes. My mom's words come back to haunt me "Mun Mun (my pet name), no single human being is meant to own so many things", HAHAHHA sorry my mom can be quite a drama queen sometimes. :P

But I comfort myself though, my wardrobe is a work-in-progress! :D

And good news everyone, these are all the things that I have decided to sell! There will be more going into this part of my closet space as I organise the rest of my things, but trust me, a lot of goodies will be going up on Boudoir-Boudoir soon! :)

And my favorite part of my new wardrobe! I have always wanted one of this compartmentalised shelves! *heart* These are just some fo my things temporarily chucked in, things which I found in my carton boxes (?), under my bed (?) and in new shopping bags (*shy*). Will definitely have fun arranging my accessories when I get to them! :D

8 doors wardrobes later, I find my life more fulfilled. :P

On another note, I know how you feel about getting rid of things. Meh hatez itz. Try to think of it this way la. The more things you sell = the more new things you can buy.


Vivien said...

I always feel a huge sense of accomplishment after organising my things! I should be organising my wardrobe soon..I'm such a hoarder I refuse to throw away things that I know I wouldn't wear but can't bear to throw..

רציתי לחלק איתכם בחוויה אותו עברתי אחרי הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במשך שנה אחרי המקרה, הרגשתי מדוכאת, ללא שמחת חיים, עייפה ומדוכדכת. בכל דרך רפואית רגילה לא יכולתי להשתקם וכתוצאה מכך פניתי ל- [b][url=]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. ייעצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר כולל מסאז איורוודה משחרר במיוחד אשר עורר לי את החושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. אני לא יכלה להמחיש את השינוי שעברתי, אומנם זה היה טיפול מסאג שוודי ראשון, השתפר לי המצב הרוח, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם כוחות חדשים, שמחה ומוכנה להמשיך הלאה.

עיסוי האיורוודה הוא עיסוי רפואי משולב עם מוזיקה נעימה, מוזיקה נעימה וריח של קטורת. בהתחלת העיסוי יש מגע מפנק מעל המגבת לאחר חשיפה של הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. מריחת שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, אחרכך תנועה מלטפת ועדינה מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. אחרי מספר תנועות מפנקות מתחיל הטיפול בצידו השני של הגוף, אחרי התנועות על צידו השני מתחיל תהליך של לחיצות רפואיות מכיוון שהגוף התרגל למגע נעים ומרגיע ודבר זה גרם לשרירים להרפות במידה... כל זה בטיפול ספא מפנק של עיסוי עד בית הלקוח.

אישית לא האמנתי כי דברים כאלה יכולים להיות עד אשר חוויתי מסאג שוודי מושקע כלכך, המעסה המקצועי הגיע עד לביתי עם מגע שלא הכרתי שלא האמנתי שיכול להיות. אני ממליצה בחום לכל אחד ואחת אשר חשבו על עיסוי רפואי, [b][url=]מסאז[/url][/b]' או סתם חוויה בלתי נשכחת בסופ"ש על
