On an (not-so) early Sunday morning, as I was putting on my makeup, I received a message from a real estate agent friend.

He's an old friend whom Bee and I ran into at a Malaysian restaurant last weekend after auction of the lake house.

Coincidentally, he's also a friend of Bee's uncle, and the same agent who sold his house earlier last year. In fact, he's the real estate agent Bee's uncle sought advice from about the lake house when he knew that we were interested in it.

Melbourne is so small that it scares me sometimes, I'm telling ya!

Anyway, the message was about a house that has just come onto the market and is opening for inspection for the first time this weekend.

He said that, for some reason, he thought of us when he saw the house and we should definitely go have a look since he knew we are still looking for "the one".

Bee and I couldn't make it for the open house inspection because I had to work today, so we scheduled a private viewing much later in the afternoon.

Turned out, Bee loves the house, whereas I'm kinda on the fence about it.

I'm not sure if it was because I was tired and hungry since I came straight from work with no food and a long drive (well, technically speaking, Bee was the one who drove), or I was still too hung up about the lake house, but somehow, I just wasn't quite feeling it.

I mean, it's a very beautiful and nice house, but somehow, it didn't have the zsa zsa zsu for me. *Shrugs*

A bit later on, Bee and I had hearty Malaysian food for dinner, fish head vermicelli (again) and good ol' fried kuey teow.

I was never a big fan of fish head vermicelli before, but lately, I just can't stop craving for it!

Maybe the cold weather plays a big part too. Winter is closing in on us, who wouldn't want a big bowl of hot noodle soup with deep fried fish head and crunchy preserved vegies (my favourite) huh?

Anyway, Bee is still really keen about the house, so we've rescheduled another private viewing tomorrow night.

Wish us luck!
