Like many Malaysians during the enforcement of the Movement Control Order, I spent a whole lot of time at home. With working from bed home being the norm, I began to notice that my bedroom was a bit of a mess.

And when I say a bit, what I meant to say was ‘how the heck did I manage to live in this bedroom for more than one day?’ kind of mess. Well, just take a look at my bedroom before MCO below and you’d understand.

(Warning: you may have the urge to come down to my home and clean my room after seeing these photos.)

Yikes! Come to think of it, now all the naggings from my mom about me treating my bedroom like a refugee camp and asking me to clean up the room makes a whole lot of sense.

And cleaned up I did, and then some. Seeing as MCO gave us extra time confined at home, Shopee became my new best friend and I bought a few items online to transform my room.

Here are the photos of my bedroom after the makeover:

Much better, don’t you think?

I’ll break it down to all 4 corners of the room and of course, all links are also included.
