Welcome Home

As I'd mentioned in the previous post, I managed to get myself a place to stay in Tioman. It isn't much of a house. Well, it isnt't even a house to begin with; getting a house in Tioman is borderline impossible. The place I'm renting in now is a small chalet. When I say small, I really mean small. I left the cables for my camera in the room (silly me) so I couldn't put the pictures here, but here's a schematic of the room.
It's about as big as 6-tatami room, probably even smaller. The small space beside the bed is just enough one person to perform the prayers. By the way, the bed takes up about 60% of the space. There's no kitchen so I have to eat out every day. Good thing there are restaurants nearby. Grocery stores, and most importantly, the school where I'm working at are also within walking distance.

The room is equipped with air-con and water heater, but I agreed not to use it, unless I want to be paying more than RM250/month. I'm not exactly thrilled with my new home, but I am thankful to have one. At least I won't be obliged to stay in the warden's room anymore, so at this point, I really can't afford to be picky.

i think this room is quite alright for a single person. rm250/month sounds affordable too.

we might visit you during school holidays, if you are still in Tioman =)

yea..its alright la. having a roof over my head is a luxury in itself so i'm not complaining. but if soya were to move here this chalet simply won't do..

gossessi mungkin juga gossip during recession. haha~

I think you'll be spending more time outside than indoors so the small chalet is only for sleeping.
No biggie.
You can do all your school work sitting in the sun at the beach.
