I arrived in Beijing today to begin my new posting.
I started packing my office and bags on Saturday only to realise that everything fits inside 2 bags and a backpack.
Yeah. It's seems like my entire existence consists of only 3 pieces of luggage.
Perhaps I was a nomad in my previous life destined to live a life without roots. A nicer way to put this would be that I am very mobile.
So for the time being, I will be living out of a suitcase (or two and a backpack) in a tiny hotel room. I will be going house hunting for the next two weeks and hopefully find one to my liking soon so that I can stop paying exorbitant laundry bills.
Then again, given how giam kana my HR is, I have my doubts if I can find a nice studio apartment within a budget that they won't kpkb. Not happy then I continue to stay in the hotel and see how that works out lor.
p.s. As it turned out, there is ANOTHER Irish Pub in the vicinity. Hooray! Shall check that one out and decide which shall be my HQ after-hours. Need a place to watch Euro 2012.
p.p.s. Found a gym right outside my office. A 2-month membership is RMB 700 which is very pricey compared to what I used to be paying at Dongguan (RMB 900 for 30 entries which works out to be around 6 months). Lan lan suck thumb lor.
