That's one last look at my old kitchen. In about 12 days I am getting a new one. My. My. Christmas did come early.
Ever since the launch of the new METOD kitchen range, I’ve developed a major crush on it. Whenever I visit IKEA, I would open and slam the doors just to hear "nothing". (Yay for soft-closing!) And don't get me started on the...

The second IKEA store in Malaysia is opening end Nov 2015. It'll be the largest IKEA store in Malaysia.
A Roof Capping Event? I immediately had thoughts of giant cranes lifting the roof to the top of the building, which would be quite a feat to witness. Alas, my imagination proved too wild for IKEA Cheras. A Roof Capping event ...

Love this stowaway towel rack!
Here is a stow away towel dryer that I fabricated using one TSUJIG shoe rack and two GRUNDTAL rails. It's easy to open and store even when loaded.

Red's gone. Say hello to my new chalkboard wall! 
Just wanted to post an update on the red wall. It's now a chalkboard (Nippon Satin Glo Crater Black). Truth be told, I had a bit of painter's remorse the few days after the red wall was gone. The room felt a tad darker and I ...

Sebnem sent this link my way and it just made me go all ... awww... inside. Hope it warms your day too.  http://www.boredpanda.com/japanese-cat-bed-ikea-duktig/ #ikeahack   #catlovers  
Some clever Japanese cat owners have re-purposed a simple but popular doll bed from IKEA, turning it into an adorable bed for their cats and other pets. The $20 Duktig is officially a toy bed for children's dolls, but it also seems to have become IKEA's first foray into the pet furniture market.

I'm getting a new IKEA METOD kitchen. So exciting. But first, the old custom built 16-y/o kitchen has to go. 
I'm getting a new IKEA METOD kitchen! After weeks of planning, things are finally in motion. Yesterday, the guys came and took away my 16 year old kitchen. Installation of the new babies will only happen in 3-4 weeks, so in t...

I did some chalking! Here's how it looks.
It was too hot to sleep, so I did this instead. My chalkboard wall is turning to be my go-to place whenever I feel the need to "do something with my hands". Before this triangle "wallpaper", I had on a whimsical bird on a...

Sharing my experiences on IKEAhackers with about 50 people today ... I am relieved that it's over and happy it went well. #publicspeaking   
Outside of this blog, I don't talk much about my work and what I do on IKEAhackers. So when my church asked me to share a bit of my story to a group of young working adults, I thought I should step up and share the things I'v...

Applause! For one because I remember my first public appearance. It was horrifying and rewarding at the same time. Congrats you did it!

Phew! It took a while but this is the last part of my trip update. :) It details my visit to the Concept Centre and discussion on the trademark issue.
Read Part 1 here. Read Part 2 here. Our last day was spent at the IKEA Concept Centre in Delft. It is an actual IKEA store with learning and research spliced in. In here, IKEA studies customers' interactions with their pr...
