Now that I feel kind of settled down, it is time to show you how my “home” for the foreseeable future looks like, and how much money I spent for the move.
Items Brought Over: shampoo rack, mirror, pails, dry mop, washing machine
Items Bought: Towel rail (Shower) – RM 9.90, Water heater unit – RM 8
The water heater is from SenQ, the selling price was RM 380. When I was making payment, the salesgirl informed me that I have RM500 worth of Treats points from my Maybank credit card that I can redeem. So, I quickly grabbed another item that I
need want. It was out of stock and had to be ordered, I have not received it yet. That mysterious item was RM 128. Total RM 508, I paid RM 8 for both of them. Since the water heater is more expensive, I attribute the RM 8 to it.
Items Brought Over: Everything except the air cooler unit
Items Bought: Air cooler unit – RM 159
It should have been RM 0 here, I didn’t buy the air cooler because of the move, I bought it because my fan was broken. But, oh wells…
The room is kind of barren now. I’m surprised that it is actually quite spacious after I put all my personal things inside. I still have a Jusco bought wooden wardrobe to dismantle and move, but that one is currently being used by one of the housemates, That one I’ll have to wait for him to move out. That one’s not gonna cost me anything more anyway, except maybe for a few longer screws to secure the wardrobe back.
And forgive the blurry picture, it was a poorly generated panorama shot from my phone.
Items Brought Over: Everything except the wooden table
Items Bought: Wooden table – RM 239
The table that holds the oven and induction cooker was originally my laptop table in the room back in the old place. Water filter was from the old place too. This was the only time I am being slightly not decent. I uninstalled the water filter to bring it here yesterday with only half day notice to them. For the coming weekend, those guys will just have to make do with boiling water or bringing drinking water back from outside or whatever they fancy doing.
Things Brought Over: Hanging rack
Things Bought: Chair – RM 75
It’s not going to be a living room anyway. It is my clothes drying area, and it is expected to stay that way.
Total One Off Spending
Plus the PVC floor mats, 20 meters for RM 64
RM 9.90 + RM 8 + RM 159 + RM 239 + RM 75 + RM 64 = RM 554.90
Unexpected Monthly Savings
I was on Streamyx 2Mbps at the old place, RM 130 per month. When I tried to change address at Telekom shop, I was told that my new place is too new and it was not setup with Streamyx or Unifi. I had to terminate my account. The same evening I discovered that Yes 4G is actually offering a 1Mbps unlimited quota plan for RM 79 per month, with a further RM 5 discount with auto billing. So now I pay RM 56 less per month for unlimited internet. And my Yes 1Mbps has already proven to be faster than the Streamyx 2Mbps.
One of the housemate (not the one that had his car blocking the way, the other one) asked if he can stay with me. Apparently he already bought a house and the house is currently under renovation. He only needed 2 to 3 more months before being able to move. As you know I always try to be decent, and there is one extra room. You know what my answer is.
So for the coming 2 to 3 months, I will get another RM 200 per month in rent.
Yeah, I think I’m good and comfortable with how everything turned out.
