Because I'm Cheap!

... and that's why many posts from now on will not have photos, because uploading photos will eat my PAY-BY-KB internet T_T. I'll have to leech off Hungry Jack's internet or the uni's paid-for-wireless which is pretty cheap.




Dunno what to type.

OKAY come let me tell you about my house/townhouse/apartment! (Dedicated to Linda)

First of all, there's the confusion over the term for unit. On the website, it's called Magill Campus Apartments, but that's not the mailing address. The mailing address is the (unit number/building number, St. add), so it's sort of like a small collection of apartments. But then there is a sign outside that says townhouses for rent. But no matter, the important thing is I have a pretty spacious UNIT and a proper address so you all may send me lovely letters or packages :D

My neighbours are Kien and his flock of 3 girls living in one of the 3 bedroom, Double storey units; Thomas in a 2 bedroom, double storey similar to mine, and Audrey who just moved into the top floor 2 bedroom, single storey unit. Note that half of the occupants in our block are Malaysians and from Taylors, hahahaha. We're slowly but surely, taking over the place. Oh, and we make the most noise too. Especially during monopoly nights.

"I'll trade you my green for your red."

"I'll give you my Northumberland AND 500 bucks!"


"50 % discount on rent!!!"

"#%)!!#*$&#@!(!!!!! you!! NO! Don't sell to him!!"

"(#)%@# you!! COUNT PROPERLY LA! 12 ONLY!"

Ahem, anyway, I have the master bedroom, which is only slightly smaller than my old room in KL by about 1m square ft. In it, I have a single bed, a bedside table, a long desk & pinboard, and a cupboard. It was pretty dusty, but I suppose it's normal considering the previous tenants were not very clean; the living room floor was sticky and I backed away hastily when I opened the kitchen cabinets; it was all grimy and cobwebs at each corner :S

I shall attempt to describe each item in my room since there are no photos!
