The relocation is complete!
Its taking alittle longer than usual to settle down this time due to damages followup and little nitty gritties. Thanks to lousy Sydney Crown packers, I had a heartache for a while over the damaged items.... I have learnt my lessons. I will stick to Santa Fe from now on...
Had spent 2 days alone just tidying up the kitchen and store. I have cleaniness complusion and considering kitchen is where food is prepared and cutlery stored, I couldnt help wiping down every corner. Not to mention raging war with roaches that I saw and sealing up every conceivable and visible cracks and notches.
I have been really lucky that the weather has been relatively agreeable, if not pleasant considering I'm still in summer. The breeze is coming through the unit since I returned. The sun is doing me a great favor too is drying up all my laundry quickly. (My poor overworked washer....)
Still, its finally a relieve to not live life out of a suitcase anymore. The whole of July has been a blur, zipping from one country to another. Most importantly, I missed my bed though I had sleepless night the first day being so unaccustomed to the comfort. My husband and I laughed at the thought that our back has gotten use to the hard beds at hotels.
Its a good thing too that pollution is not as bad lately, probably with the temporary clampdown on evil factories choking the air with toxic waste. At least I am seeing blue skies and white clouds.
I really missed being back in Asia.
The comfort food, the familiar assortment and selections, my chinese veges, my chinese programs, fast service. However there are somethings I missed too from Australia - the fresh butcher meats instead of frozen, sweetest corn and fruits....
