1. We've finally managed to book a fully furnished apartment in Barking. it is a nice and modern 1 bedroom apt, on the second floor situated just few minutes away from barking tube station- which will be convenient enough for me to travel to class, (barking nih sebenarnya dah masuk daerah Essex, tapi barking to whitechapel will only takes about 20minutes by tube, and both towns are on the same tube line!). the apt is just few blocks away from barking central- which will be convenient enough for us to shop for groceries (even there are a few halal meat stores available!).... and most importantly, the landlord has agreed to let it to us!*fuh* so, ni la lebih2 kurang bentuknya apt tuh.. (nanti bila dah masuk umah, kitorg upload gambar yg kitorg amik sdr!) yeay yeay dah dapat umah raya! hehehhe
2. I've officially changed my status from a dental surgeon cum trainee lecturer to a student..
as for the apartment, we have to pay 6weeks' rent as deposit, and up front payment of 5months! and not to forget, admin fees and reference fees for the agents!huhu
