Was searching through my old posts to find out the date we actually shifted into Compass Heights - wanted to find out if the date coincide on a bad day for house shifting. We never believed in feng shui and so for CH, we didn't choose any auspicious date to move in nor did we perform any ritual for blessings. But now I'm thinking if these are the reasons behind our not-so-good luck (Xuan never slept in her room, faced sleep problems and many problems; the siblings fought badly; a lot of crazy tantrums, anger; sickness and illness within the first 2 years, etc)

Well, i did not even document the date of shifting in, so I'd never be able to conclude.

Now, I've become more particular about feng shui. But sometimes, the dates chosen for various stages are out of our control.

For the new house we are shifting to, here are some dates:
20 oct 2016 shift boxes to warehouse
21 oct 2016 collect keys and door opening
27 oct 2016 shift and stay in AMK
November 2016 renovation
December 2016 shift in to new abode

Just keep fingers crossed that all dates are good dates and things will turn out well for everyone in the new house.

Before we know it, September is coming and we should be expecting our keys anytime in September. Yes, keys to our new abbot. Hopefully we can settled down after this last moval. Things' gonna be fast and furious after we've gotten the keys. We have decided not to engage an ID, instead we will be coordinating all aspects of renovation and design by engaging different contractors for different works. For record, we are shifting to Luxus Hills, after much deliberation and many many house viewings... well, I'm going to miss the convenience of Compass One downstairs when it opens in September and the lizard-free house at 13-13!

Starting secondary school

Xuan has started her secondary education in Nanyang Girls' High. She has liked it so far, expect that she hasn't made any 'best' friends yet. She's still very much in contact with her two primary school BFF - Charmaine and Celeste. .. I hope they will always keep in touch and be one another's pillar of strength when the tides get high and the ride gets rough. Hb drives Xuan to NYGH while I walk Kai to NCPS every morning. Walking to Anchorvale Rd takes 12 minutes while driving to Bukit Timah takes 35 minutes... so I take the easier job... Nevertheless, I still have to wake up at 6.05am everyday to get things ready for the family. ... It's going to be a super busy year this year.
