DIY saves money

My husband is a true DIY man. Thanks Allah for this, we gotta save lots of money.
First he made a bench for duduk2, and I promised to paint it in dark brown (which I haven't do it btw). Last week he did a lot DIY things.

1.We noticed that there was a small stain of a leaking pipes at the bathroom and I was so worried! Since the first bathroom's wall were connected to the TV area, and the leaking was just a few inches from the electric socket. Kalau 'short' nanti macam mana?. There he was, working on it the whole last Saturday. Dari hacking the tiles and pasang balik semuanya. But the new tiles are in yellow color sebab kat hardware yg berdekatan kena place order first jadi I can't afford to see the hacked walls bare begitu saja. So kuning pun, kuning lah. And though tak sekemas the contractor job but jadilah. Sebab we really takut bab2 leaking pipes ni.

2. Our house kan, the roof tile dekat master bedroom banyak yg bocor. Even though dah byk kali inspect and tampal by tukang pun still bocor. And the bocor tu is according to the type of hujan. Kalau hujan pattern camni, nanti dia bocor kat sini etc. Pelik. we sungguh penat tau and sakit hati sebab dah tak tau nak buat apa. I was thinking to change the roof tile, portion yang dekat master bedroom. But the problem is susah nak cari tukang, and cuaca tak menentu. One day, it will be sun and shiny and the next day petir berdentam dentum. And atap bocor tu did take a toll on us. Tau lah kan yg our ceiling is a plastered ceiling, jadi kalau hujan, akan ada spots bulat2. Tapi itu ok lagi. But then since it is kembang kan, lama2 jadi bocor and air menitik masuk. Last friday hujan lebat gile kat Kuang since 3 pm until i dont know when it stops. Tengah tido, suddenly dengar bunyi air masuk. terus terjaga and tgk air dah jatuh. Mr husband tadah pakai tangan while I pergi bathroom ambil baldi. Pia pulak menangis sebab nak ikut . Takut orang tinggalkan dia -__-. The next day we all tampal pakai tape je, sebab nak tampal the hole kan mestilah cuaca panas or else, kalau siling basah, kapur pun jatuh balik. I pray hard supaya tak hujan and alhamdulillah semalam Ahad cuaca panas terik sangat2 sampai kering lah ceiling tu. Mr husband tampal the hole and he did it neatly. He learnt that by observing tukang buat dulu lah.

3. He fix our broken bed.
Our bed kan, yang usia nya hampir 6 tahun tu was bought by me (guna hantaran kahwin). At that time, mana lah mampu nak beli mahal2 so beli set biasa dengan meja solek and wardrobe dalam seribu lebih camtu. As years passes, dia dah bunyi2 sikit. Tambah sekarang the girls suka lompat-lompat atas katil. Dah a few times dia patah tapi yang minor je and mr husband fix it there and then jugak. A few times i said just buy a new one tapi he refused. Dia sayang this bed. Banyak kenangan. Fineee... (-__-). Oh, he is a bit sentimental lah. I remember when last time I went to Korea for a week, and bila balik rumah tengok he changed the bedsheet to cadar kahwin.. kahkahkah. Ok back to the story,It was after solat subuh together, and we decided to sambung tidur. Afterall, it's sunday. And we cuddled, and so and so. and the bed decided to fell down while we are busy with that. Such a spoiler kan? -_-".Of course lah takde mood dah. Being me, dah tension and said jom kita pi beli katil baru. And he said. No, i'll think of something. Hanginnyaaaaa... But later that afternoon, he fix it. With a saw and few carpentry stuffs he fix our wedding bed. Bravo husband!!

He saved a lot from DIY things.
To celebrate, I treat him a Nandos at Ikano yesterday. We went after Maghrib and we love going out after maghrib as takde mende nak dikejar sangat. Kids already bathed and fed, and Isyak waktu panjang sangat. So no worries and terkejar2. And I bought some stuffs from Ikea. Bought some plates, glassware (gonna make tiramisu this week), a new bedsheet and a gravy jug. Love it to bits.
