Fish Fish's new apartment

Today was a good sunny day. I didn't go anywhere except went to throw rubbish. Whole day I was staying in my living room eating, cooking, surfing net and doing exercise.

Since it was a good weather day, I decided to take pictures of my room. ^_^ Yes, as I promised before, my new private space is finally revealed today. It is actually an old building which have been here for decades.

This is my main door. Small. One thing that I didn't like about this door is the usage of glass. I don't feel secure with this kind of material. However, as I am on the 2nd floor, maybe not as bad?

Beside the door you can see a nice wardrobe as my shoes rack and store for putting broom etc.

The living room and kitchen is on the right side of my apartment.

All the furniture are provided by the admin. Some are quite old.

My eating @ working desk has a nice split in the middle. A lot of scratch on the surface. But then, it is working well.

The TV is a nice one. However, I seldom switch it on, as I am not watching TV much, at least for the time being.

It is an enjoyable moment sitting on this old but very comfortable sofa while giving myself a good laugh on the program in the TV.

See those book racks? I have a total 24 compartments of this. -_-""" I am thinking buying some nice pot plant to decorate it.

One of my favorite working space.

I am now spending 2-3 h per day at this place cooking my healthy food for my dieting program.

The refrigerator is more than enough for me to store as much food as I want.

I have 4 stoves which I can cook 4 types of dish at one time. :P

I even have a nice baker and broiler. Hmmm... that is such a temptation for me to try Frances's recipe on her famous cheesecake. But then, I have to endure for these few months, at least not until I get rid of the first 10kg. *sigh*

Dang Dang Dang!! I am going to bring you to the more private part of my apartment. ;)

Are you ready?

Tralala~~~ my bedroom!!!

See the 2 beds? One is a double bed, another is a single bed. Seriously, I don't know why they are giving me 2 beds, but then this is going to be very convenient for me. Yes, if you ever come to visit fish fish in this little space of mine, you will sleep on the blue bed. ^_^

Oolala~~~ who will be the 1st to have such an honour then?

This is my wardrobe. I have 2 sets of this. One in the living room, which I use it for putting books and other things.

This one in my room, I am using it to put all my clothings. I love this wardrobe, it makes my clothings keeping so easy and convenient.

Too bad, the mirror only show my upper half. Hmm... I am thinking of getting a mirror that will reflect a whole body. Later.

The bathroom and the toilet is in one unit. Not too big, but then enough for me to do the important business.

Even the basin, is quite small if compared to the living room and bedroom.

Did I tell you I have 2 bathroom?

Yes, I have 2, when I only need one.

You see, my apartment in a bit different from the normal 1-room apartment.

They are using 2 studios to make into 1-room apartment. Therefore, I have almost like 2 for everything. Heee... I am turning this bathroom into my laundry room. Yes, I am trying to burn more calories by hand wash my clothings while the weather is still warm.

Even my workmate 2-room apartment is smaller than mine. She has been saying I am really lucky.

Well, the rental fee is much expensive if compared to other area. But then it is very convenient for me. Everything except phone bill are included into my rental fee. Yes, including the electricity, which can be a pain in US.

With all the furniture, I don't have to worry about getting rid of them the next time I move away. The moving experience in Japan was a horror to me, I don't feel like to go through that again.

Every morning, I need to walk only 15 min to reach my work place. They do have free buses every 15 min to bring me there, but walking will be a good time for burning some of my fat. ;)

The nice green scenery outside my window is just such a good thing for me to start my day.

Don't you think so? ;)

I love my new apartment.
