Its the time of the year! IKEA SALE is here again...and this is the perfect time to shop to prep your home for the coming Hari Raya celebrations! And of course if you're into seasons...then its time to make your house all nice and summery! 

The sale starts on Thursday 5th July till Sunday 22nd July  2012. And if you are an IKEA FAMILY member like me then you get to check out the sale preview between 7:00a.m. to 9:30am on Thursday 5th July before the rest of the world comes in and lay their hands on the fab items.

In case you're unaware, the IKEA FAMILY card replaces the IKEA Friends card. I recently signed for mine and it was all in under 5 minutes including getting my temporary card.

And since I was at IKEA, its only natural that I grab myself a meal there and redeem my 2 FREE drinks. Did you see the print at the bottom that says Get 2x free drinks and discounted IKEA FAMILY meals at the restaurant on my temporary card? So here's what I ate!
meatballs and fries RM10.60
i have a terrible weakness for pasta with tomato base RM5.30
chicken wings RM4.03
gravax lax RM11.55
My 2 free drinks! we opted for coffee and a soft drink.
RM0.00 for the free drinks.

BTW...I visited IKEA to shop for some stuff and ended up signing up for the IKEA FAMILY card. If you cook like I do or spend quite some time in the kitchen, then you may want to consider this  BYGEL kitchen trolley at RM125. We bought 3. One for my home. One for mother in law dearest. One for my office. Why office? Well, its nice to place our drinks and snacks on it when we meet in the discussion room and happily roll them all out of the way after discussion instead of carrying trays:D
