We have put an offer on a house and it has been accepted!! Well, with a counter offer and we provided a counter offer as well.

Seeing that this is a bank holiday weekend, we can't start our due diligence yet. Hoping that all the due diligence (finance,building report, title checks) will come back OK and we could be in our new house early Dec!! Settlement date is 2nd of December, just days before Aiman's birthday.

Praying hard!! I am a believer if it meant to be, it will be, so hopefully if it falls through, I won't be too disappointed :(

But we do need to move soon, with Summer just around the corner, I am struggling to keep the kids amused. We are hoping in the new house, it will be easy for me to entertain the kids, allowing Noorwan to focus on his study

Aliya had her operation at Southern Cross today - grommets, nasendoscopy and adenoidectomy.It went well. It was done by Miss Francoise Jean-Louis

She has had ongoing ear infections since April this year, Miss Jean-Louis said when she operated on her, her drums were pulsating, meaning they were full of fluid, resulting in infections..hopefully the grommets will dry up her tubes and stop more infections.

She was groggy and grumpy for about 1/2 hr post surgery. A few hrs after surgery she is more or less back to herself..alhamdullah..for now, she is on regular paracetamol, ciproxin ear drops and PO amoxycillin

Get well soon my little darling..

Last weekend, no more open house for us, so we continue our search pre raya, looking for a house. Last weekend we visited 9 open homes I think. I fell in love with one and DH fell in love with one.Masalahnya..2 rumah yg berlainan..his house is cheaper by 10k

Petang tadi pi ronda2 tgk both sekali lagi, from the outside..Intai2 bilik etc, both umah tu kosong, so boleh la intai..yg satu tu owner dah pindah ke Auckland, yg satu lagi pulak umah baru, x siap lagi..

Dua2 ada buruk baiknya..macam mana ni? The one that I like (Magellan Rise) is 'slightly' more expensive than what we are willing to pay for, but better in quality (smaller in size though!) I like the lay out, it is us to the T, I can see us living there. The one that DH likes (Christobel Circle), bigger and cheaper (inside and outside), but I 'think' it is cheaper because of the building materials, steel roof not tiles, half of the house is plastered not brick yada yada...but the one that he likes is double glazed!!!! Major points there!! The house will defo be warmer! My one is single glazed only, plus the master bedroom and study don't get a lot of sun. We will have to install a heatpump if we buy that plus it is not fully fenced, so more expenses there...huhuhuhuhu.. mana nak cari duit ni?? Lambat lagi nak boleh locum..alhamdullilah I have an opportunity to earn some extra this week, can put it towards the house buying process

Thinking of putting an offer on the one that I like but we have only been looking for a few weeks, what if there is better/cheaper one out there??

We are planning to go and have a second visit this friday, before Aliya's operation and quite likely will be putting an offer. If we can negotiate a price that we can afford, will quite likely buy that one..if not..kena cari yg lain lah...back to the drawing board..

Praying for a miracle..If it is meant to be it will be..InsyaAllah
