Once again, I left the blogging world for a while and missed my friends who had always been in my thoughts when I was away.
Life had been so hectic for the past 2 months that I could hardly find time to sit in front of my computer.
Early last year, I wrote a post about my apartment suffering from fungus attack. I spent so much time cleaning and painting the walls and the furniture at that time.
End of last year, I noticed that the fungi had launched another silent attack. It wasn't as bad as before but I had to act fast to prevent them from spreading. This time, I chose to discard all of my wooden furniture that were infected rather than cleaning and painting them as I noticed that the stubborn fungi could still grow on the painted surfaces which were infected prior to painting.
Almost seventy percent of my wooden furniture were discarded and I've replaced them with furniture made of steel, glass and plastic. I had to avoid wooden stuff at this time until I really get rid of the fungi problem. My kitchen had been renovated with tiled concrete counter top and metal shelves. All the doors and some of the interior walls of my apartment had also been painted.
While the renovation was going on in stages, my wife safely delivered a baby boy. I had to go on a long leave after that to stay at home and take care of my wife and children. And while doing so, school started and I had to prepare my eldest child for Primary 1.
Although life was quite hectic and exhausting during the past weeks, it was also accompanied by joy and happiness. I enjoyed spending much time with my children during the long leave. It was also fun to watch the new look and concept of our home, and of course, the fun watching the new member of the family grew.
Thanks to all of my dear friends who have left their messages when I was away, reminding me that I was not forgotten even when I may deserve to be. I really appreciate it very much.
The war against the "evil" fungus has not ended yet. There are still a few more things need to be done. I pray that everything will be fine soon.
With my son who has started his Primary 1, and with the new baby at home, time has become tighter for me and my wife.
