I would like to think that my readers have somehow gotten accustomed to my unreliable ways.....
Some days ago, I realized that I needed to blog.
Mainly because I haven't been getting invites to review anything anymore, and my allowance is running dry .
But for the sake of maintaining the elegance of this blog ( I kid) , I will write whatever that comes close to a complete post that I am capable of .
So yes, Hello. University has been an eye opening experience so far. And so has staying away from home. I won't say that I'm exactly enjoying staying away, but I can't say that I'm home sick either. It has only been 3 months; maybe I still have some getting used to do, or maybe I'll never be able to feel comfortable in my rented room.
oh, about my rented room! How much I have to tell you about my rented room!
Let me start by saying that rooms in KL are expensive! wait no, lets not limit it to rooms, everything in KL is expensive.It's by far the most expensive city I've stayed in (hint of exaggeration). Me and a friend found a room going for a whopping 1k a month (without amenities). We were convinced that it was a rip off but had to sign the contract as the start of our semester was nearing. And we were also cheated into thinking that this other guy had RSVP'ed a room for us, when all he wanted to do was TAKE OUR MONEY! (i'll leave this story for some other time).
This is what it looks like from outside, yes yes, before you say that I'm oblivious to the dangers of the city by posting a picture of my house online, may i just add that all the houses in that area (which i won't name) looks the same okay!
Btw, this is my roommate Japhia, next to her stuff. She's very excited - as you can see.....
she doesn't always look this happy, in fact, we both look like a combination of "crap, what day is it?" and "do you have free food?" on normal days.
Anyhow, after speaking with a couple of friends, we realized that our 1k room was somewhat a bargain (what?!). Turns out that most of the houses in our area (which i still won't name) are renovated by kiasu landlords to hold like 15 rooms to maximize profit (ooh business term). Imagine how small each of the rooms turn out! I guess the expensive room was a blessing in disguise because it's SUPAR HUGE!
Japhia and I sometimes call it our very own apartment unit, with our own kitchen, dressing place and toilet.
And best of all, the entire house isn't renovated. Not one bit, so we still have a hall downstairs. A rather un-used hall, but still, it's a normal house!
So it was worth it after all. plus our water bill only came up to Rm4 last month (note: this does not, in anyway, reflect on the amount of showers we take)
oh, this is the amount of rice Japhia brought over. ASIAN POWER!
and that's basically as much as I can blog for the moment. But I've got posts on que, so it shouldn't take a while for me to get back on track again.
Let's all be reminded that blessings come in different packages, but through it all, always remain thankful for what you have.
Be Right Back ,
