Ode to my kitchen

"Do you fall in love often?" 
"Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all."
-Jeanette Winterson (British Novelist)

Because really, how can you not!

I fell in love with my new kitchen yesterday.

So what if it doesn't have any electricity (yet), 
or even a fridge/stove or welcome mat 
(*adds Welcome Mat to shopping list*)
and that the waste disposal system leaks.

I love its space,
I love its tiled counter tops
the cupboards (even with its hint of white ants)
and the ceiling fan that is built too close to the tubelight.

I love lying on my $20 rug from Rups,
in the middle of the kitchen floor,
and loving it even more.

(and I love telling people how my entire Tokyo apartment could fit into this new kitchen)

Object of my affection.
