Updates 3 :

it wasnt a good first night yesterday….

1) i was cheated 10chf… well only have stupid me to blame
2) it was noisy, drunk, party goers, buses, lorries, restaurant patrons, church bells…

tht makes me wonder if i make a good choice for the apartment??? hmmm we shall see how it goes later…

My swiss living room

my Malaysianized living room

my swiss bedroom

my Malaysianized bedroom

my swiss kitchen

my Malaysianized kitchen (see Milo? maggi? indomee? chinese herbs? old town coffee? rice cooker??)

And i am constantly reminding myself my choice is a good one due to these sceneries…

Updates 2 :

I officially completed my probation period with flying colours… hahahah flying colours wasnt the exact word they used… but then overall…i had great feedbacks…

and now i think i cant really use the phrase “i’m new” often now… hehe

Cheers….and i will be temporary “offline” for some time as i hv no internet line in my place yet.

I am currently in my last steps of settling down…

I moved to my near, permanent apartment today… all the stuffs from the relocation company, that i sent from Malaysia….

So i had a day off… Moving House Leave…

First i have to de-register myself from the canton that i am in, so that i am able to re-register myself to the new canton where my new apartment will be.

Then i waited for the logistic company ppl, to move all my items… trust me, i moved way way way too little stuffs, i should have bring more… SIGH…..

And then i had the whole afternoon trying to arrange and to unpack my stuffs.

One this on apartment rental here is that you do not need to clean your apartment when you move in… reason :

It is compulsory for the ex-tenant to clean it 100%, windows blinds, toilets, kitchen, nooks, corners, every single inch, for the owner will make sure it is 100% clean, without dust or water stains on the window… Then when they hand me the apartment, they will write down details on the defects and the condition. I have to sign on it and this will be used against me later shall i move again….

I think this is a good concept…. wonder if it can happened back in Bolehland?

For a moment i like the fact that i have my own place now… and suddenly i have lots of idea to make it a nice living place…. to buy sofas, tv, radios, decorations, lamps, perfume, plants, tables, bath curtains, bathmats, vacuum cleaner, nice plates, matching glasses and coffee cups, coffee machines…

and i told my mum about it.. and my mum bring me back to earth…

she asked , am i going to marry here? if yes, please proceed, else dont be silly to have all the luxuries and to have it so well furnished…

i had been viewing a few apartments in the past few days..
but all of them… were beyond my budget..

one of them.. i really loved it.. the kitchen was magnificent.. newly renovated, with your own washing machine and dryer… with lift, in a good neighbourhood, slightly out of town but with bus stopping in front of the doorstep.

but then i convinced myself, that me here being alone, i do not need such a luxurious apartment… is not that i m going to host lots of party or there will be much ppl to appreciate the beauty of the apartment with me… and i was also worried that i do not have the right/cool/luxury furnitures to furnished the apartment… so i told my relocation agent.. i dont want that.. i want something cheaper…

and apparently according to the agent, it is hard to come by..good location, within my budget and it aint dodgy.

but seems like fate has its way of making things work…
i met a colleague of mine…
and she is planning to move to a new place..
and she is looking for someone to takeover her apartment.

Opportunity strikes… and i told her i want it.
I went to her place.. to look around…

well… good location, in city centre, 1st floor, with lift,
but surrounded by houses and offices, means i need to have the curtains down all the time to avoid giving peepshow to the neighbour, then it is without balcony, and it has no dryer… only washing machine.

i think for sometime.. and finally i say YES… and i sent in my application…. the owner was also delighted and accepted my application…. but one other downside is that i have to pay a deposit of 4-month-rent uphand before i can move in….

sigh….. i hv to tell myself… i will treat it as saving and just go with it.

an idea how it looks like… of course without the furniture… i will hv to get my own couch..

my own cupboard, light, curtain,tables, chairs, bed etc.. but the toilet will come as it is.. only without the shower curtain

First sign of Spring?

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

After a much dreaded week of rain and snow… this morning brings a much welcome change… at least for me
it was sunny and warm and clear blue sky.

Ahh… perfect for my day trip to the city of Zug, the capital of the canton of the same name. It was my frist day tour of the city after passing by with trains the whole week. But i will reserved the trip for another post.

Today i would like to share with you… my temporaray apartment… a beautifully furnished apartment in Baar…

The Living room……

The kitchen….

The study room………. guest room

the throne room


It is really a very very nice place…. But one thing..

I SCREWED UP THE SINK! god damn it! I would need to phone the agent… and to inform them about that. I guessed i would have to pay a fortune to have the bloddy plumber over… damn it… This happened right before i left the house for the day trip to Zug… and it does makes my first sign of spring day… a tad least pleasant.

Oh and may i share with you my breakfast for today?
