Beyond the hallway path, today I decided to "do up" the entrance area, doing away with the "dislodged tiles", and alas finding the damage way more pervasive that initially thought (having a lot of stuff stacked up around the area did conceal the cracks, alas).
Too many things going on in my #henglifesg right now, to even have time to “hustle”... as the days go by, whatever ability I used to think I have if “multitasking”, is now vastly diminished ... “one task at a time” is the only speed I can afford , and even that is at a crawling pace :( my utter gracious and humble thanks to those friends who had chosen to stand by me, even tho they might not know the full story. #treasured .... meanwhile, back to those gawddamned #poppedtiles! Used magazines are ever helpful to balance up the thickness of the tiles and dislodged lifts... I tried using folded newspapers for the main hallway corridor and I dont think that worked too well tho ... CNY in a few days time too :(
This time I had used magazines to lay, instead of rolled/folded-up newspapers before, and the result is much more stable and palatable, and provides a much more "even" spread. And thank goodness for the large screen TV carton box I "saved" from my flat's rubbish bin area (as I lugged it into the lift lol), for a much "cleaner" carton box surface (instead of printed text and logos etc). I've also saved a big patch for the hallway corridor, sorting it out before Chinese New Year Eve Reunion Dinner - happening in a couple of days time too! Cutting it close, I know, but I'd rather have less footprints on it lah .... even though this is a temporary patch-up, I'd still want it to look nice-nice lor :p
Might have to work on my bedroom doorway after the new year period ... I can't even close my bedroom door because the popped tiles are right in the middle of its path! Which essentially means I cannot close my door to record audio for my youtube videos, without the sound of Pasir Ris in the background lol
