Project MOV3 - The Kickoff

House-moving After consulting the cosmos and the alignment of the stars, I am ready to announce that the entire family is moving. Yes, MOVING! To a new home, new neighbourhood, new faces...Actual date yet to be decided but definitely before the year ends.

After 25+ years in the only house I ever know, I must admit this isn't something easy to swallow. I guess it's harder on my dad, afterall almost half a century at ONE home is no mean feat. But all said and done, we decided on this as a family and we will stick through it as a family. Once the reality sinks in though, it's actually kinda exciting and absolutely major..

Some of the changes/similarities from the current to the new place:
  1. New address, OLD postcode

  2. No more backyard scenic seaview. Well, I still have a bird's eye view of the sea from my room but it's definitely not a 100m walking distance anymore. (But hey, tsunami-danger zone no more too *winks)

  3. No more buying breakfast/lunch/tea from just across the street. However there's a market right below the new place so more variety for breakfast I guess. (Oh and booboo, next time I can find you to makan outside your home in the afternoons LOL)

  4. No more walking distance to order cheap-but-yummy satays. (Pat, next time you'll have to order yourself ya :P)

  5. No more car-filled area making it hard for those who are not used to driving in and u-turning. (SHuey, don't have to worry about knocking into other cars and probably no reversing needed too so guess safe from another "why-car-cannot-reverse!" situation :P)

  6. No more parking right outside the house. Now I have to take the elevator. (Or flight of stairs for some calory-burning!)

  7. Almost the same distance to work, similar routes, same old traffic jams...

And the most significant difference of all...the SIZE! Definitely a case of "Honey, I shrunk the HOUSE!" Over the years, I've accumulated quite an amount of - call it what you want; junks, treasures..I prefer to name them - memories. Thus, the upcoming months are gonna be pretty buzy ones as I have to walk through these stuff and decide if the time has come for me to let go of the tangibles....

Lastly, I hereby officially kick off my Project MOV3.

What's the reason you're moving out? And it sounds like you're just moving down the street...

Catherine said...

My mum likes the new place plus with the market just beside it, it's very convenient for her.

Haha almost the same area but not dwn the street :)

I will move closer to office too next Jan but mine is just a minor case...hihi...

Catherine said...
