Kasilah the Carpenter!

Ok. So I've been at my new place for 3 months now. The house has been awesome so far. Alhamdulillah.

We enjoy the space and.. I love my kitchen and toilets!! HAHAHA! =P

I know pictures are way overdue, but I think I shall keep some spaces private for now. Segan laaaaa!!! Heh.

But.. I'll share you pictures of my KITCHEN!! my wonderful kitchen!!! Even my mother who is hard to please is actually happy with the outcome of  MY CHOICE. Yes. I picked the colours and everything that you see in the kitchen.

The best part is, my carpentry expert who is a friend of the husband is such a niceeeeeeeeeee person! We went ala carte for our house, remember? So, yeah, we had someone to do the carpentry related works in the house and his name is KASILAH. ;) I don't have a picture of him cos he's quite a shy person but I'll share with you his contact number at the end of this entry ok! Promise!

So... Kasilah being the nice and accommodating carpentry expert, advised us on what we can expect for our kitchen. He showed us samples of his previous works and also the laminate designs available. I wanted something earthy and neutral for the kitchen and we played around with shades of browns.

My mother's only requirement was that she wanted lotssssssssssss of storage. I also don't know why cos we threw away quite alot of stuff from our previous home. BUT, we went ahead with the "cabinet dari hujung ke hujung" idea. heh. Our rubbish chute is also hidden from view. I LIKE.

I present to you, my humble kitchen! :)

You know the little window you see above? That happened because my husband INSISTS on having it. That is HIS idea. Konon boleh jenguk budak-budak at the playroom. And did I tell you he actually did a puppet show for the boys, from the kitchen. Memang creative sungguh suami saya. ;P

I wanted something mosaic-ish for the kitchen backsplash.. But having real mosaic would be a killer to clean and maintain, especially when my mother cooks alot. Soooo.. My other contractor, gave me the option of going for tiles that look like mosaic. Ni macam mosaic faux pas la. lol. I'm happy with my choice because it's so easy to clean yet looks like mosaic. :)

Overall, the whole process was a breeze. Kasilah made things so easy for the husband and I. He listened to what we wanted. Accommodated to our many ridiculous requests and DELIVERED our kitchen, the way we like it. He also did the carpentry works for my mother's and brother's wardrobe which turns out to be sooo spacious and awesome for storage. 

His price? VERY REASONABLE. Because ni bukan kes tangan atas tangan like some renovation companies. He buys the wood direct and laminates it, and cuts it out according to what YOU WANT. 

If you're looking for someone to do your wardrobe, kitchen cabinet, feature wall, TV console, display area or anything that has got to do with carpentry works, you have to call KASILAH and ask for his advice and services. Confirm puas hati! SERIOUSLY. 

And no, he didn't pay me to do this and write nice things about him. Ini ikhlas cos I think he deserves it. My husband says, I do too much amal jariah sometimes. Lol. Tapi takpe, kalau you all nak i tulis nice things about your products or services, pun boleh! email me ok. :)

Anyway kawan-kawan, tunggu apa lagi, call or SMS
KASILAH the carpentry expert at 9662 1740

Quote "NONA KIRANA" and he might just give you a discount. ;)

Ok. This is out of point, but here's our dining area! Sukaaaaaaaaa sangatttt!! Ok. itu je!!

Haris Noh

When I first set my eyes on him at the nursery, I knew he was special. It was love at first sight. While all the other babies were busy crying, this one was sleeping peacefully with that little sharp nose of his.

At the age of one, his parents got divorced. I took him in and cared for him just like my own. I love him so much and would do anything a mother would do, to protect and care for a child.

Haris, thank you for being my sunshine and little superman. You have always been there for me and even promised to protect me when you were only 4. I remembered going through a bad patch in my life when I was 21. I was crying so badly in my room. You came to me, stroked my hair and told me to stop crying and that you will take care of me. How not to love someone sweet like you? When I was about to give birth to Ashayr, you cried when you came back from school and found out that I was already at the hospital. You came and stayed past midnight, just to be with me, Abah and your new little brother.

You are the kindest, smartest and most caring boy I've known. Having you in my life has been a blessing and never once have I regretted my decision of taking care of you. You are special, trust me.

Today, 7 March 2013, you turn exactly 9 years old. What a fine young boy you have turned up to be. I pray that may ALLAH continue to guide you, bless your life with many more wonderful things and grow up to be someone great, someday. AMIN. InShaaAllah. 

Live this life the best way you can. Give whenever you can. Be wise in making your decisions. Stay humble in all situations. Continue being positive towards life. I know you have it in you to be a great man, someday. I will continue praying for your success and I promise to always be there for you. Thank you for being an amazing son.

I love you, Haris. 

More than you will ever know. :)
