Goodbye to the old place in Sungai Ara… it has been an… can’t get myself to say great, more like… it has been an alright one year and ten months. But circumstances mean we have to part ways.
It’s not you. It’s not me. It’s not even us. It’s something bigger than us. It’s the entire area, getting more and more fucked up in terms of traffic jam, and it will only get worse once the MRT constructions go into full swing. And you know how I hate traffic jams. Okay, so maybe it is actually me.
I leave you just like how I found you: barren and empty and devoid of floor tiles.
Okay, not exactly as I found you. I’m leaving behind the water heater, an
useless piece of shit air cooler unit, two cheapo shelves and some knick knacks.
Also, goodbye to Yes FIZ 1Mbps internet. You, I will not miss. Not in a million years. Because you have been deceitful.
Well, not you per se, it was the salesman that convinced me to sign you up. But you get the point.
When I signed up for your services, I was promised that it was a broadband plan with unlimited bandwidth at 1Mbps speed. I was told that since you are wireless, we won’t be inhibited by bullshit such as telephone cable deterioration. Turns out that was a bullshit claim. Turns out the truth was: 1Mbps speed guaranteed at 30GB quota, then the speed will be throttled at 25%. 30GB on Windows 8 is basically 5 days worth of bandwidth, leaving me with 25 more days of snail paced torture.
So, yeah… nope, I will not miss you. Farewell, adieu, sayonara, don’t wanna see you ever again…
Hello to my new place in… well, I’m not gonna tell it straight in your face here. Somewhere in Penang island presumably. I hope you will be the last rental place for me. I hope the next time I move, it will be to a house that I will buy. We’ll see…
After 4 days of back and forth with my trusty Myvi, I’m finally done moving and setting everything up. Unlike most who would rent a lorry and move everything in one go, I was more comfortable doing things my way. And my way was to do it stage by stage. I carry a load, unload and set the things up in the new place, and then go back and carry another load, and repeat the process. Well it was partially also because I refuse to pay RM 300 to rent the fucking lorry, especially since I made sure everything I possess could fit into my car, fuck the fucking lorry!
You want a sneak preview? Okay, here’s a sneak preview.
As you can see, the only happening area is the kitchen area. The living room is… bare, with only the clothes drying rack and (temporarily) my work table. I never really have much use for a living room, single man as I am, but I guess this new place is really longer (hence bigger), so now it actually feels kind of… sad, looking at so much empty space.
It was a tiring process, I’ve never felt so tired in my life, ever. It was much worse than the previous time. The previous time, I moved from a landed property to a flat. The loading part was much easier, because I can back my trusty little hatchback straight to the front door. This time I was moving from a flat to another flat. The loading part was as tough as the unloading part, so it was kind of double the effort.
In fact, my entire body is still sore and in pain. It will probably take a few days for me to walk it off.
Anyway, this might be a temporary setup. I have still not decided if I want to sublet a room out. After all, rental + internet combined, this place will cost me RM 120 more than the old place did every month. I need to settle down for a week or two before deciding my best course of action.
Speaking of which, hello also to TIME 100Mbps Fibre Broadband! You are supposed to be a no strings attached unlimited bandwidth quota internet, and theoretically 100 times faster than my old pathetic piece of shit. So far you have been marvelous, allowing me to simultaneously do auto updates on my phone + download songs + watch Youtube on HD without buffering. We’ll be in it together for at least 2 years, so I hope you will never let me down some way down the road. 😉
