room hunting blues: part 1

so n, beng and i went to see the condo yesterday. the first thing i noticed was there were no covered walkways. at all. and it was raining, that's why we took a cab going there. so we walked as fast as we could, getting a bit soaked and strenuously looking for the block number of the condo unit. it was kinda depressing, us - walking in the rain, big pool, no people around. anyway, we found the unit and beng commented they got a very nice and modern-looking door. i have to agree with her. the door opened, and this big, jolly guy greeted us - and then he and n began talking like they were best friends or something. turned out they worked on the same company before. small world, lah. so i thought this was a good sign. he showed us the unit then - it was very white, and spacious and orderly and clean. ridiculuosly clean. next he showed us my room. it was spacious alright. and has a queen-sized bed and a built-in cabinet. but it has this small window. which made the room look kinda dark and sad. and that was all i could think of afterwards. he showed us the kitchen, the laundry room, the common bathroom. all clean and white. and lastly, he showed us the bomb-shelter room. it's a pretty big room where they put all their boxes and luggages and he said i can store my bike there. coolness! the room even had a phone inside in case you get stuck inside when a bomb falls off. which made us think of the panic room movie. so this big guy and n chatted a little more and then i told him i'll think about the room first. he also advised us to walk in the basement on our way out, in case we don't have umbrellas. so that solves the covered walkway dilemma.

while on the cab on our way home, i had a survey on the unit. beng says she likes the unit(spacious, big pool, nice door) but thinks the unit is too clean. hmm.. good point. n tried to read me by saying i didnt like it. the boy was right but i wanted his opinion, so he said at least he knows the person i'll be living with(n says this guy reminds him of donish, which rocks because i miss donish) and my room was big but the condo was far from my office. all valid points. now i'm torn. i like the condo, and the fact that this guy i'll be living with reminds us of donish, but i dont like the small window in my room. hate that window. so i cant decide yet. i guess i'll still be on the look-out for other rooms. but this room is number 1 on my list, because that's all i have right now.

condo pics by the way, tell me what you think

even if the guy reminds you of don, he's still not don. so that doesn't count.

rather than being obsessed with the amenities of the place, better put more weight on the people that you are going to live with. that is very very very important. you might have been taking it for granted now, since you're living with friends, but this is different - you're going to be living with strangers. unless if you find a "friend" willing to share a unit with you of course...
ehem-ehem! :-D

isn't it true what they say - a clean room is a sure sign of a sick mind?

food for thought lang. :-)
