When I was still living in Malaysia, my mum was super friendly with my right side neighbour. I don´t know how she manage to make friends with her though because their doors were always close and no one ever hang out outside the house. We thought this was a super cold family in the beginning but after my mum got to know her, we became quite friendly to each other. There was one day when we actually went into her house and look around. Boy was her house pretty. I absolutely loved her tiles. She had this wooden tile which was so smooth and glossy that it made the entire house look so elegant yet comfy at the same time. Though they told us that it was super expensive to buy it.
I wish I could have it in my house next time.
