In Malaysia, we used the famous and easily found PYE products. Makes the floor looks like brand new, eh?
Poor missus took 1 MONTH of no pay leave just to deal with this menace of epic proportions. You'll know in a short while...
Not a very good sign. In the end, it was discarded.
In the end, a lot of the furniture was discarded. :(
My house don't quite look the same anymore.
Even now, 6 months on, we have no curtains. No blankets.
For 5 months, we slept without pillows, just a barren bed.
We hesitated for the longest time over having a pillow for fear of introduction or otherwise.
Even then, now, when we do have a pillow, it's encased with IT'S own pillow encasement!
And the world still kept on turning, the sun kept on shining... and our lives had to keep on going.
You may be wondering how it came to this: Well, the one device that had assisted me to keep my house clean was the unfortunate helper giving out free rides from our bedroom.
My Robotic Vacuum cleaner would hand out 'get out of jail' free cards and they would hitch a ride out into my living hall, dining and Little One's room. The only 2 locations they didn't quite make it was the store room and kitchen as baby safety gates prevented the cleaner from going further.
On many levels, you learn to give up items that you don't need and now, when we shop, the first question we ask ourselves is, "Do we need it?".
If we do, "Where do we keep it?"
Poor Little One had had it hard.
Not understanding why most of his toys have been kept away.
Not allowed to sit and play on the floor like how he used too.
Forced to use slippers.
But he adapted over time...
It has been extremely hard and difficult for us. Thankfully, Google has been very helpful (if you get the right websites and forums).
Will we survive?
We'll have to... we have no choice.
