I know not many are impressed with Ikea. My Dad, an engineer, always says "hindi matibay." Learned from a local that even Singaporeans are not so into it (How true? The long lines whenever we're there say otherwise). Pero dahil simple lang kami, happy na kami sa Ikea. LOL.
And the good news? There's a free shuttle bus from Punggol to Ikea Tampines. Free, yey! Ikea's a mere 15-minute ride from our building. (There's also an Ikea store along Alexandra Road, SG, but we've never been there.)
We spent a Satur-date hopping from Ikea to Courts (appliance store) then to Giant (supermarket). All three mega stores are in one area, in Tampines, as in tatawid ka lang to get to the next building. Kayang-kayang ikutin ang tatlong stores, in one afternoon.
It was fun dreaming about / planning for our SG home. This will be our third love nest, God-willing. First, was our newlywed apartment in QC which was very oriental. We gave that up when we bought the second, a condo in Mandaluyong, which is very red, black and white retro-pop. Then, ito, sana. *fingers crossed*

Pag bangon nyo,

But not the beddings -- too floral for us.
