New year, new flat!

So it’s already a known fact that my entire family came with us here in Singapore after our 2 week vacation in the Philippines. Right after they went home, I had to deal with the task of searching for a new flat since our contract in our current flat is about to expire and we wanted to look for a nicer flat even though it meant we had to pay more (ouch!). I only had a week to search for a reasonably priced flat and the fact that Chinese New Year is approaching didn’t make house hunting any easier. Just like 2 years ago, I was again calling and sending countless sms to agents, searching for nice HDB flats, checking street directory and the most troublesome of all, house viewing!

It would’ve been easier if agents would just post the photos of the house so we can decide whether we personally want to view it or not, but no, most agent don’t do that. Right after work, we would go to different locations for house viewing. We were lucky to find a nice flat and the price is not so bad.

I am now recuperating (yes recuperating is the word, it’s that intense!) from post traumatic stress disorder the chaos of wedding preparations, Philippines visit, family vacation, house moving and headaches caused by our house agent! I will not rant on how the house is not clean when we moved in, the air conditioning units were not serviced, the washing machine is not working and the bidets are leaking. Instead, I will just focus on our neat and spacious flat, the cool breeze from the 10th floor, how much closet space I have, our nice toilet in the masters bedroom and our clean kitchen. 🙂

our living room and tiny tv!

Our Singtel Mio TV contract has expired and we switched to Starhub! We have so many channels, I was overwhelmed so I ask my husband if we could buy a tv and he said yes. He didn’t really have a choice, really.
