Desk lamps, table lamps, wall lamps and lamp shades everywhere! Walking through the many choices to choose from razzle-dazzled me as I stopped to admire each beautiful lamp; my already fickle mind swirled in further confusion as to which one would make the perfect addition to my office! fikir

This one here beckons me with its simplicity. Clean fine lines and solid features make this perfect for modern comfort in a living room perhaps, but certainly not my home office.

How about this lady bug lamp? It's adorable and I love that it comes in lime green, but unless I plan to have a nursery for my three cats in the near future, this lamp for kids will have to wait until we actually have little ones walking around! siul

Ah this one I love! Both colour and design are too sweet for words! It sets off a nice relaxing mood too but having one in my office will just make me sleepy and lazy and we can't have that!

Undaunted, we stopped for dinner and coffee first. As planned, I had the delicious meatballs and open-faced shrimp sandwich.

It was getting late by then and we wanted to get home in time to watch my darling's football match. And that was when I spotted the perfect lamp for me. Lime green and pink? As my friend Monica would say - perfection! Went home feeling happy with another great buy from IKEA!

This long weekend, I'm taking care of the ailing elderly and coaching young nephews who are having their exams in 2 weeks' time. :(

eastcoastlife,  May 02, 2009 9:45 PM

Poor Aunty and poor kids. =-X

foongpc,  May 02, 2009 10:26 PM

Glad you got your lamp. Thought you gave up halfway to eat and then balik :-D

foongpc,  May 02, 2009 10:28 PM

IKEA products are quite attractive and stylish, but only problem do not last very long. I guess that's their tactic - to make you go back and buy again and again. Clever! :)
