Alright people. Here’s the actual great post that I have promised you guys earlier on. Over the past few weeks, I have been busy with a secret project actually. Now that it’s finally accomplished, I can finally present to you my magnum opus.
You see, my nenek just underwent a heart surgery and my father decided to move her bedroom downstairs for safety reasons; so she doesn’t have to climb the stairs so often. And I inherited nenek’s room of course. Bye bye to my tiny little Polly Pocket matchbox bedroom!
So of course a new room calls for……a brand new makeover!! I’m finally a big girl and I’m allowed to furnish my own room for the 1st time. Oh I just couldn’t contain my excitement. I have so many radical ideas and I’m so gonna make it happen.
First things first. I don’t want no boring white walls. Apa kelas! I want….a red one. *Picks up handphone and speed dials Mom*
“Mommy, tell Daddy I want red walls in my room. Just 2 side will do. The other 2 leave white. Have it done before I come back k? Love you….”
Hmm…..red already but still boring. I want a mural now. So lots of drawing and erasing took place. Man it was so much work! I didn’t imagine drawing on a wall is that difficult! So I got a lil’ help from mom to touch up my final drawing. A lil’. Ha ha ha! Then came the painting part. Another grueling process…..but oh….just look at the end product!
Isn’t it just simply gorgeous! Sure it may not be a work of Picasso or professionally done; but at least I can proudly call it a Bibik Original! I actually hand drawn and painted it myself; so it sure feels rewarding. Very big accomplishment for me ok! First time I draw mural tau…kira cantik oledi lah! I dunno (and dun care) what you think….but I SIMPLY LOVE IT!!!
Next off would be getting a bed. Initially I was planning to get a single bed; thinking that I could save more space to have a writing table. But for some reasons, Daddy coaxed me into getting a queen size bed instead. That conniving old man just wanted me to spend more money. Grrr!!! He even brought me to a furniture shop selling nothing but only queen beds! Keji tak?! So I got no choice but to choose a queen bed from there.
But oh the selections they have! I dinch know Melaka got sell furnitures with such exquisite taste you know. If only the price tag is less exquisite. Cis. The beds come in all sorts of futuristic designs made of solid black wood. And I chose one with blue neon lights on the head. I had to. Look at how shiny my bed is…ha ha ha!
Of course the damage to my wallet was no less a 3rd degree burn with little chance of full recovery. I paid almost a thousand for the bed frame ALONE and another few hundred (5 I think) for a queen size mattress. Bontot Bibik on Megasale now. Sapa nak, e mail mak okeh. Do support the Bibik’s New Bedroom Charity Foundation. Mati lah i kena makan Maggi for the next 3 months.
Next off….bedsheets. Now be reminded that I never had a queen bed before. I always have been sleeping on single beds. Maklumlah taraf single now kan. This is my 1st queen bed (does that makes me taraf Queen now?) which means I need to get brand new comforters and sheets. This type of money cannot save one you know. I’ll be sleeping on it and we’re talking bout my own comfort.
After searching high and low for long enough, I finally found my love at 1st sight.
Double toned Maroon silk comforters with matching bed sheets and pillow case and bolster case. 300 thread counts. Damage caused: RM 450. I know you must be calling me crazy to be spending so much on bed sheets and comforters alone. But hey, you have any idea how silk feels like to the naked skin under a chilling 20C air con? Sleeping Beauty slept for a hundred years on her bed. I can sleep till Thy Kingdom Comes under my silk comforters. The only missing thing on my bed now is Ken Watanabe’s bare shoulder for me to lie on. Sigh….bila lah my Chairman is going to appear.
Ehmm ehmm. Moving on. Curtains. Now of course I can’ have a naked window in my room can I? And what could be more perfect if it’s none other than another double toned satin fabric. I’m seeing sea blue here. This is the taste of a genuine oriental queen. Everything must shining shining one.
And oh have I found the perfect match! I was so elated by what wonders this magic curtain does. You see, its kinda semi translucent but its not clear enough to see what’s really behind it. How very seductive. Mak suka! In view of that, the shades of the curtain provides glorious daylight to my room in the daytime. It’s bright enough but its not glaring. And I don’t even have to open the curtain. It’s magic. That’s all I can say.
And when it gets darker, the curtain magically transform into glistening shades of blue green under white fluorescent lights. How g-l-a-m is that! Mak suker mak suker!!!
Next stop….furnishings. I always thought this would be the most fun part of revamping a room. But one has to be cautious not to over decorate the room lest it turns into Elton John’s bedroom. I’m still in the midst of hunting for trinkets to add in but here’s what i got so far.
I always wanted these brightly coloured leaves for a long time. The red ones I saw in the shop are simply gorgeous bit I figured they won’t stand out from my equally-as-red walls. So I matched 3 tones of lime green (you didn’t think I would loose out my favourite colour did you??), a darker hue of purple and off white. The results? Fantabulous.
Just see how striking they look with a red wall. Such vibrant and bold colours. Ha ha ha!
Oh, and I got these really colourful Peking Opera masks from my trip to Langkawi last time also. I haven’t hang them up yet, but they’re going up on my white walls soon. Also fabulous.
Now that I’m almost finally done with everything, there’s just one little thing left. My one stop entertainment centre. This would be the 2nd atom bomb attack to my wallet. I got me a petite black LG DVD player with a matching LG flat screen TV. Because they’re of the same brand, you know I can just use the DVD remote control to control both the TV and the DVD player itself? How clever is that. Technology is so fascinating these days. With the TV in my room, that means I can have my PS2 in my bedroom as well. And my blogging machine goes in there too of course.
So now, I don’t have to leave my room at all. I can sleep, watch DVDs, surf
So once again, I present to you….le queen’s de la red boudoir! Voule voucoo shag avec moi…croissant oui Delifrance Au Clair eeuw de toilette.
Dun jeles coz I can speak fluent French and you can't.
