Moving in

It has been a hectic past few days. At least the moving was without any hitch. The house is still in a bit of mess, with boxes and bags still unpacked and pieces of IKEA furniture still un-assembled. Out of the few things I bought, the ‘Fisher & Paykel’ fridge does not work, the ‘Delonghi’ air port leaves a funny tasting drinking water and the leg rest I picked from IKEA is of the wrong colour. Okay, the last one was my fault, but the other two tells much of the quality of electrical goods nowadays. It is like for every three items you buy, one is defective. There should be a penalty against the manufacturer for poor quality control. Like a $50 voucher or a discount on the initial price.

Sorry, I ‘m sidetracking. Anyway, the house will keep me busy for the next one month. A paint job maybe, more IKEA shopping, do up the study and guest room, christmas decorating, etc. It’s like I’ve taken up a new hobby, and that’s not including the compulsory house chores. Oh well, this is the price you pay for owning your own place.

Here’s a pic of my place before the move-in.

And here’s how ‘moving house’ is done in Malaysia.
