And we have touchdown~

And we managed to move and more or less settle down in 1 week. Even though still staying in a 2-bedroom apartment, new place is at least 40% bigger in terms of gross space. Actual living space feels more like 100% bigger! Finally we can have dinner without having to transform the sofabed and the dining table. Autobots, you're dismissed~ With the addition of a 40" Samsung iDTV and a 204cm long sofabed from IKEA, the living room is finally a place fit for living...

As for the neighbourhood, as long as we don't venture into the shopping area, it is a pretty peaceful and pleasant place. Walking into the estate we could hear the birds chirping away! After staying in the middle of Kowloon for such a long time I have already forgotten the sound of birds in the morning... been waking up to roaring truck noises and screaming market vendors...

And this morning I woke up to the sight of a trawling ship hauling its catch of the day. From the top down it was quite a majestic sight. A single vessel in a vast sea of fog. And I could count the number of cars with one hand from my viewpoint more than 50 storeys above.

One complaint, the house is bloody cold! Not sure if it is the extra space or its just the fact we are facing the sea... I'm glad the owners of the apartment got an airconditioner with built-in heater! Pictures of the new place to come~ once I got the X'mas tree up and glowing!

Next target will be getting 4 wheels... still undecided on the make although we have a few nominees. A VW Beetle sounds like something we won't drive back in SG...
