heh. You guys think my room is messy. Wait until you see these other 5 pack-rats.
The funny thing is, these messy people actually won RM2,ooo vouchers to shop at IKEA from the Go Clean Your Room contest i wrote about. So i’m now feeling very sesat dunno to feel happy or sad for being not messy enough.
I really salute some of these people. The amount of effort they put in shooting and editing the video and all, i wonder why they didn’t channel the energy into tidying up their room in the first place. (But then if they did, they wouldn’t have won RM2,ooo. Amazing isn’t it.)
Let’s take a look.

Who really reeeeeeeally put all shopaholic girls to shame with mountains of stuff in his room. I’m not kidding. Mountains. Gunung Kinabalu. Everest.
Anyway, i was really curious how they managed to even live a life in such atrociously messy room. So i did a little questionnaire with some of the shortlisted winners.
Anyway, let’s take a look at what the say about their room. Below is a little Cheeserland Interview with the shortlisted winners.
S: Shiau Lee
B: Cheesie’s secret bubble speech
C: How did you manage to put up with so much mess in your house for so long?
(B: You don’t get sinus problem one meh)
J: You live with it… literally. I’m sure you’ve chucked stuff about before, and developed your own system amid chaos to survive. Adapting is a necessity in survival!
(B: yea but… do you really need like, 150 jeans?)
S: Well, as a messy person, i can only find things when the things are messy, if the things are neatly kept, i find it impossible to find, and eventually i will forget the existence of the things. So, i always warn my mom not to touch the things in my room.
(B: Hmmm. Good excuse. Now i got something to tell my mom.)
C: How do you plan to utilize the voucher?
N: Buy a BED…ahhhhh… A goodnight sleep makes you feel energetic the next morning and happily clean up the mess!!!
S: All this while, i’m big fan of IKEA’s stuff, i think the plastic bag organizer is one of the best designs, and the sofa bed i got for my brother years ago…..is really cool.
J: I already did, and it took me no less than eight hours spread out between two days. Day one was to identify suitable IKEA products to my needs, dimensions that fitted my room’s limited space, survey the price tags and of course, the oh so important question of colour combination. It’s not enough that it looks good, or is functional – it also has to fit into my daily routine as I will never have a piece that is there for just one reason. Not an easy task, because I tend to buy on impulse and that’s never a good thing. Still, being a shopaholic, I’ve learnt to control myself just a little and taught myself how to plan quick for shopping sprees.
C: What is your best purchase from IKEA so far?
N: I love my stand up lamp…just cost me RM30..
J: Aiyo! How do you limit your favourite IKEA products to just one. I mean, the Expedits, Lacks, Kalas, and its well-known Billy series. But if any purchase is good, it would be the Famnig Hjarta. You know the red heart pillow with arms. IKEA’s most popular item. This is the only time, where something with 100 % polyester on will get my hug. And it feels good! Awwww…
(B: I’m starting to like this guy. I wanna make him my shopping buddy.)
C: Share with us your tips to clean up your room (if you have any).
S: Well, stuff everything inside a cupboard if you have guest coming and he insisted to see your room. And always use wet vacumm cleaner so, u can sweep and mop the floor at the same time. Well, when u are more ready, categorize your things into 3 different sentimental values; 1: Important, 2. Can be negotiated, 3. Unwanted.
(B: lolol. Best tips ever. This girl really inspired me. Salute.)
S: Alright, Cheesie… that’s all from me. Actually, i want to thank you, cause i only send my video after i read your blog the other day. And today i won it. Kinda feel satisfied over it.
(B: !!! What about me!!!)
So. These 5 people are gonna show you their makeover room soon! Go to IKEA to vote for your favorite makeover and stand a chance to win IKEA vouchers worth RM50!
I was expecting some dead animals too!

Eh so end up did you enter or not? But really lah, these ppl so kohlien. Glad they got their vouchers.
😯 Oh my gosh, even I’m not that messy.
Oh gosh, it’s really really messy! 😯

Should have entered the competition with my room back in the hostel in Russia I guess I can easily beat that! Too bad I’m back for summer holidays already -_-
Cheer up cheesie, next time when they have another contest like this you know you have to hide that coffee table and pile all your shoes up. They say picture says a thousand words, well you can actually tell a thousand lies by faking one! 😉
Shiau Lee so kesian, room become store room 😯 . Hope she wins then. Cuz no one’s room should be a store room, *stare at mum*.
I also wonder why you didnt channel your energy to tidy up your apartment instead of blogging and bragging everyday. You were one of them who tried to win tht cheap 2000rm voucher, who the hell are you to call other people’s place as a rat pack?? I noticed your post become more arogant than informative day by day.
Who the hell are you for calling Cheesie arrogant?
If you wanna scold me, use your own name ok. Do not go and use my friend’s name like you don’t have one. Pathetic little life.
this is the real kimberlycun. what gives u the rights to comment like an asshole using my name on MY friend’s blog? fucktard get a life.
wa suddenly u fly from Aus to KL. Geng.
wah, bash-er kena bash kaokao in the end…LOLOLOL…
thanks anyway ringo for the mention.
and yes, i do put most girls to shame when it comes to shopping. you haven’t seen the stuff i picked up for my mom and sis at warehouse sales. they hate it, i love it.
an excuse for me to be a shopaholic without the guilt (just the bills)
the count in the video is not accurate, i have about 3000 cds, about 400 books and not including mags, over two dozen shoes, and my jeans number actually about 250. more than estimated. my designer jackets are about 50 (i love my armani black label and zegna the most.er… not including belts, caps, and accessories. LOL!
and i’m not a messy person. just i challenge anyone to have that amount of stuff to be organised. LOL! because of that i NEED to win.LOL!
Do u really need soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many pair of jeans? really really really??! lol
if u sell all u can buy a house!
(ok, a hamster house)
I remember when I was and Malaysia. I lived there for one year for study reasons. I was renting a room in Subang Jaya area. There are other two chinese guys in the other two separate rooms. I also witnessed how messy they were especially when I get the chance to borrow CDs from them. I am never messy like those you features which you mentioned that they even won thousand ringgit. If I just knew that it is going to happen, I also make my room as messy as them. Hehe. Lol. I want to win too.
Omg switzerland!!!!!!!!! Holey cheese!!!!!!! Emmentaler!!!!!!!! 😀
Now, Wet vaccum cleaner..! That is something I’m gonna try from now onwards..!
Wish this contest is held over here in India too… You bet I’d win! 😀
❗ Argh. My room could have made your list a year ago. Books all about, clothes strung almost everywhere, with only my computer table (relatively) untouched by mayhem. Oh and don’t me get started with my kitchen – let’s just say I only found out that my tiles were light green after I cleaned it up. Ugh. In my defense, I’d like to say that I was so busy working that I totally forgot to clean up.;p My place is cleaner now though. *applause!*
I think Joseph Lee Cheng Kim is a spoiled brat who definitely needs to clean his room along with his 2000 CDS!
I will never feel untidy again after looking at some of these! I don’t know how they can stand it!
Really enjoyed this piece – great fun! My struggle is with books. We’ve got piles of them all over the house. Have given away about 300 or so in the last few months to clear a bit of space – and have bled with every giveaway 🙂 And there are still books piled everywhere. Sending you email Cheese…
