My New Appartment! Part 1

Moved into the new apartment yesterday!


This post has a brief, yet great story behind it, but I will have to tell it another day. My internet time is limited.

We are still in the Huli area. The new place is maybe 200 meters from our old place, just on the other side of the road. It has two bed rooms, one bath, a MUCH larger kitchen, a livening room, and a balcony. We pay RMB 1650 a month which is about $240 (split two ways!) so $120 a piece.

Out of a list of ten notable differences so far, there are 7 good things and maybe 3 not as good things. I will talk about 5 in this post.

The good first, SPACE! There is so much more room for everything! We have shevles and cabinets in the kitchen for everything! There is room to move around in the living room and we both have our own rooms!

There is twice as much cabinet room in this photo alone, and you cant even see the one under the sink and the one under the stove top!

Good thing number 2 would be that we have a table. Techincally yes I had a table in the old apartment but it was a coffee table and it was about 6 inches too short for anyone from the US even eating from the couch.

The next is Bedrooms. We have our own. This is good because not only are we not sharing a bed but we also aren't living on top of each other. And since we are also working in the same company 3 feet apart, this is probably a good thing.

Bed room one,

and bed room two

both rooms have these as well. As I was saying MORE ROOM!

Positive thing number 4. Balcony!

The 5th and final for today, a nice couch for chilling and CSer's to crash on


The other 5 and back story another time! Time to unpack! I am being rushed out the door!
