"Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty;

not on your past misfortunes of which all men have some."

My roof's been partially fixed and thus, no more leaks! Thanks, Tony!

The other part will be done.... dunno when.... My damp store room is not so damp anymore, I hope, I hope! The theory of how it got to be damp is this... Months ago when we were busy trying to "arrest" the termites in my kitchen, the pest control people "may" have drilled some holes into my outlet pipe for my washing machine! Hence, the water "might" have wet the surrounding area (washing machine water inlet and outlet are sharing same wall with store room) and thus the dampness on the floor.. I am now trying to dry up the floor and see if there is any new sign of "dampness". If none, then viola, problem arrested! Otherwise, we will have to tackle the inlet pulak! sigh... it isn't easy caring for a home... I have plenty of lessons learnt from this house... mistakes I hope not to repeat in a new home... daydreaming....
