When they FINALLY finished building that crazy piece of thing, at first they felt really thrilled! When the THRILL is over, reality set in and they feel a sense of lost.
The feeling of something unfinished and it's waiting to be finished.....
The feeling of wanting to walk over to the dinning table and sit down to look for the missing pieces......
The memory of every corner and every inch of the painting......
The paintings within the painting, the characters, the frames, the ceiling.....every details which they are so very familiar with.....
And so they started to search for yet another piece. Still dared not to aim too high, there's simply no space to accommodate anything bigger than 8,000pcs.
The first which caught their eyes:-
The School of Athens

The search continues.....not much to choose from......how many % of the world population has this insane hobby? Not to mention in our homeland.....
Who wants to pay for shipping cost almost as high as the product? Only "Xiao" ppl like her!
She realized that she likes the Sistine Chapel in the end, the incredible unbelievable ceiling painting by none other than Michelangelo in the Sistine chapel. (when can she go and witness the real work!?)

Couldn't wait, she emailed the owner of the cheapest one in Ebay....it's used....and they can't guarantee on any missing pieces. USD49.90 , very cheap but no.....
Then there is this one asking for USD400, out of the question!
Few day later, she tried the last owner, also in Ebay, asking price USD200, USD to RM
2 days later, still no news. She sent them email to enquire .
And on the 3rd day! YES!!!! The owner accepted!
Actually....no one else bid for it. Anyways, USD99 for the products and USD90 (bleeding heart) for shipping cost! The location is Colorado, USA.
The owner notified that it has been shipped on the 24/9, expected to reach on 4/10 - 12/10. Looking forward....ing....
|They even bought a study lamp from Ikea to facilitate the lighting better where they queue for 1 good hour to pay. Ikea is definitely still having tons of worshipper...|
