Our Dream Houses

Last week when we arrived in this township, my kids and I took a beautiful evening walk admiring the houses or should I say mansions in this neighbourhood. My girl and I had a wonderful time, imagining and fantasizing..... this...

IF WE HAVE MONEY... what would be our dream house look like. As we walked around, we started to visualize our dream houses... (no harm to imagine, as the saying goes, aim high, shoot low... LOL)
Come, Let's Go....

let's start with this....
A No for me.. .

Nope for me...

how about this? Not bad.. actually..

She finds this cute, though...

nope, this one looks simple...

She likes this one here.. she is going up...

but I don't mind having this..
It looks very "Washington-sy!" Right?

ok, more houses to come tomorrow..


  1. I like the last one! Hmmm... Wait till I strike lottery first..

  2. inspired momx: me too.. me too!! Wait.. :p

  3. all also tarak ngum me. Coz am very lazy house keeper one. All those windows and vast floor area...wanna clean also half dead loh. kakaka

  4. i like the last house... very nice!

  5. kathy, imagine only ma.. if can afford to stay in houses like this, surely got maids, right? no need to work half dead liow.. all u do is to read books and more books.. haahhaa...

    merryn: washington hor? i wonder how it looks inside..

  6. Hi Reana, nice homes. But where are these homes? Ipoh? KL?
    Here the statud symbol for homes is number of garages. 2 common....3...doing okay.
    Then the 6 to 12 garages and monster, humoungous homes of 10,000 to 15,000 sq. ft.

    One Chinese man recently paid $15 Million for a penthouse suite. There's one now going for $30 million!! Most likely another Chinaman.....

    And yes, lots of Chinese from China, HK own HUGE homes here, and their driveway....BMW's, Merceds, Lexus, etc.
    Friend of mine drives a BMW, his wife, his daughter and his son, all BMW's.
    Oh well....the lottery draw this Friday is $50 million, ha ha. Lee.

  7. michelle: KL definitely.. not ipoh..

    U.Lee: so asians are doing good in canada too.. good.. so how many garage do you have,U.Lee? how many square feet? :p hope u will strike lottery and give us 10percent.. hahahha..

  8. Oh---aren't they gorgeous? I guess IF I had a house like that, I'd HAVE to have a fulltime housekeeper, maid, cook, and yard crew.... Then I could just sit and do NOTHING...

    Like the last one with those columns.

  9. definitely the last one.. :)

  10. I prefer an English Cottage... so all these are not suitable for me.

  11. I think I like the simple ones best. Of course, if I could afford those big ones, I guess I could afford all the people to help keep it up, too.
    Thanks for the visit to mine this morning.

  12. Ooh..I could like any one of them! Its fun to dream and doesn't cost a thing.

  13. Nice houses - I like # 1 and #2! :)

  14. Claire,
    You never know what's waiting for you round the corner. Might be a lottery win :)

    Those houses sure look nice. Wonder what some people do to be able to afford houses like that and there are people like me who still live the in laws! Eeek!!

  15. I love doing this! Absolutely no harm in dreaming!! My boyfriend and I take our dog for walks down all the "nice" streets and pick out the homes that we love and dislike. A good time! :)

  36. Beautiful! KL does have a lot of these properties. I recently went to such a house for a housewarming. It's an almost all-glass 4-storey home. It even has an elevator. It looks awesome at night when all the lights are lit. Where are these taken?

  39. Dora, yes.. aim high.. but we can shoot lower.. hahahaa...
