It has been long since i last posted. Busy.
Came back to Sydney on Valentines Day, started looking for a new apartment the next day.
Had issues with money and after we found one that we kinda liked – it was the best out of all, i had to start researching and comparing cleaners – cause the house was just a little dirty since it was new and had not been stayed in ever.
Then we decided to get someone in to steam clean the carpet – incl deodorising and sanitizing it.
These 2 are done, they are coming in tml – steam clean in the morning and cleaner in the afternoon. The steam clean costs $175 and the cleaner costs between $110-$170. Well, i tried to find as cheap as i could in the small timeframe i had and this was what i ended up with – it’s a once-off thing, so i guess it’s ok.. =)
Finally, there is just one more problem – MOVERS! Movers are way expensive and they charge per hour. But it’s money that has to be spent. We have so many heavy items (Damn..). Did you know that we now have 2 fridges, 2 TVs, 4 study tables, 2 dining tables, 3 coffee tables….We have loads of furniture. But of course, to save money, we’re gonna move all the light stuffs ourselves and leave only the heavy ones to the movers so that we can try to get everything over in less than 2 hours. The new apartment is still at Capella, just 2 blocks down. We used to be in D block and now we’re in B block. It’s a 2 bedroom apartment and it’s split level so the kitchen and living area is separated from the sleeping area.
So hopefully, after the cleaning and carpets are done, we can start moving items over because Fish broke his lease on his current apartment and today a prospective tenant came and placed a deposit on his apartment already. His current apartment is a good one. So, the new tenants want to move in on Tuesday – so we have till Sunday to move all stuffs to the new place. We still have to get the cleaner to come in and clean up his current apartment.
Listen to me rattle…we have been living on take-outs this past week and we are quickly running out of choices and places to get our dinner from. Can’t wait to start cooking! Yeah!
Oh! and another big frustrating problem that i only just managed to solve. My Timetable for the up-coming semester! Finally after days and days of choosing and changing and deliberation, i have finally come up with my timetable.
For this semester, i am taking:
General Ed – Getting the most out of Spreadsheets and Databases
General Ed – Introduction to Australian Legal System
Linguistics – Social Contexts
Chinese – Chinese Cinema
History – Concepts of Asia
Hopefully i don’t do too bad this semester and everything goes well…
Cross my/your fingers!
