im moving. next month. im not really sure where. current contract will expire next month and i cannot possibly renew it on my own. thats right, ill be on my own. from living in a very comfortable and huge and homey 4-bedroom condo unit with friends, i am now forced to go solo. my roommates have decided to leave this ultra-modern and organized country. why you ask? because our job sucks. c-- is a crappy company and we're surrounded by really foul people and we're really just here for the money. if i was born rich and neil is not here, hell i'll leave too. but since im poor and n is here, i'll finish my 2-year contract with c--. anyway, one year down, one year to go baby. (so jao if you're reading this, im not a complete and total sellout. im also here for love hahaha)
did i already say im poor? i'll repeat, im poor. that means i cannot possibly get my own unit, what i need is to share a unit with other people. maybe share a unit with other people whom i don't really know. im scared. what if i dont get along with those people? what if they dont wash their dishes right away after eating or what if they hog the washing machine all weekend or what if they won't let me park my bike in the living room??? im telling all these fears a month ago to n and he suggested that i should calm down and ask friends first, maybe they have a vacant room i can rent. and that's what i did. a few weeks ago i sent an email to my friends and what did i get? nothing. one or two of them referred me to a room but those rooms did not pass my requirements. yes, of course i have requirements. what do you take me for? desperate? next month i'll be desperate. but this month i can still be picky. this is more or less what was in my email:
1. room should be spacious
2. unit should be in east coast area
3. condo should have an olympic size swimming pool
4. and since i sent it pinoy friends, that means i want pinoy roommates also.
a week ago i decided to drop requirement #2, as i still have zero options after that email. and you know what? i found one finally! ill be viewing the unit this saturday and i hope i will like it. n keeps on telling me i should keep my options open since this one is not really practical because a) the rent is almost twice as what im paying now, b) i will be farther away from the office and c) i dont really know the people i'll be living with. but im really not known to be a practical person and the first time i saw this condo(a year ago), i fell in love with it. so i defend it with the arguments that a) rents have really gone up this year and b) anywhere in singapore is not that far if you really think about it and c) i gave my future rommmate a call and he said i can park my bike in the living room so im sure he's a good person. i showed the condo pictures to beng, and she liked it right away so now im very very excited and wish it was saturday already.
