My new place: Back breaking house-moving, wooden floors, dumpling festival

moving house

I almost died during the weekend. Either that or I’m alive with muscles on top of my muscles. I moved three (3) full carloads of stuff from my old place to my new place. I didn’t get a lorry like the previous time coz all the stuff is unpacked e.g. requires multiple refilling of boxes, of which the contents will be dumped at the new place. smirk

Luckily, my kind landlord from my previous apartment (!!!) at 10 Semantan Serviced suites helped me move! Thanks for that!

bedroom

My better half also helped me clean up the place and we now have a nice temporary bed to sleep in. It’s mighty comfortable too – new mattress and new bed sheets!

The floor in the bedroom is really hard to clean though – it’s an oiled wooden floor which requires a Sweden made floor cleaner to actually clean. Regular cleaners just move the dirt around. The cleaner was provided but the agent didn’t tell me so we didn’t know until last night. -_-

We’re getting settled into the new place! :) The curtains are done and this is the unit that I really wanted coz it has a nice view compared to all the others. I also set up our His and Hers toothbrushes, which we are *finally* using! Haha.

dumpling festival

We also had our dumpling festival dinner at the new place! My dear had set up a nice dinner on top of the *only* table which I brought over…

pacman table

…which is a custom-painted Pacman inspired table that a friend of mine made back in 2010. Yup, I still have it Jammie! :D

home fibre broadband

The last thing that needs to be done for everything to be up and running is to get the fibre optic connection hooked up. w00t!

spare keys

I also gave a pair of spare keys to my better half for her use. :)

  1. When I moved back to Kuching for good I also had about three carload of stuff to shipped back. That’s also after throwing so much stuff away! The packing is a total bitch -.-

    • Yeah, I reckon you’ll have a lot! :)

      I have done a lot of moving in my life, having lived in 3 different countries and several different states and several different houses/condos to boot!

    • Thanks Reana! :)

      We haven’t had our housewarming yet though, but it’s a nice place to live in with my better half!

  2. A new home!! When is the house warming and Michellin dinner for me??

    When I moved from my small condo to a house, the movers freaked out and had to tell me that they had never seen any couple who engaged them to load 4 lorries with 4 workmen from a small condo!!! They thought it would be a single lorry trip and not 4. Don’t ask me why?

    • Haha! I haven’t done everything yet! :)

      There’s still a lot of work and plenty of stuff that’s not packed.

      Wow! I wanted to get a lorry but I didn’t have time to pack my stuff into boxes.

    • Yeah, and they’re still on the floor! :)

      It’s stacked nicely now though, thanks to the help of my dear…

      …but I still haven’t unpacked everything.

    • You only need one key to get in! :)

      Two now that I have the security gate up. Haha!

      However, I do have two tags though, both of which can get up (one via lobby, one via car park).

  3. congraaaats!! housewarming, soon? hehehe. you can make your Masterchef-worthy dishes! ;D you used to live in 10 Semantan?!? omg. i friggin LOVE ploy (; they’re close, right?

    • I’ll love to, but it’s a bit too small, my place! :)

      Yup, I used to live in 10 Semantan Serviced Suites! I lived there for 4 years!
