Our new home sweet home

It has been almost 3 weeks that we moved to a new place which is situated in Imajuku Aoki shi-jutaku Danchi. As I've explained in the entry : "Pindah Rumah *lagi*"; Danchi is actually a Japanese word which refers to a large cluster of apartment buildings of a particular style and design, typically built as public housing by a government authority.

The danchi that we are staying right now are owned by Fukuoka-city (shi) administration. As a student, we are entitled to get a 70-75% discount for the monthly rent. The actual rent to stay in this house is about 21900 yen (RM805) per month. After the special discount allocated for students like us, the monthly rent of our new home cost us only 5400 yen (RM 200) plus 3600 yen (RM132) for parking area; which in total is only about 9000yen (RM332) per month. This is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo cheap comparing to our previous home in Imajuku Kaikan were we had to pay 40,000yen (~RM 1500) every month. We could save a lot of money living in this new home; so the money can go to new handbag + clothes + shoes our family savings account.

Even though the building is quite old and eerie from the outside, the interior of the house is still in good shaped and being under good care and maintenance before new tenants coming in. Ala2 konsepnya; luar macam setinggan..dalam macam banglo ah gatai eheh.

Furthermore, this new home is much bigger to the previous home. It has 3 rooms and a living dining kitchen area. What I loved the most about traditional Japanese home is that it has lots and lots of big closets. Therefore, our things and belongings can perfectly housed the closets without worrying that if we have time to really organize it nicely inside the closet or just simply campak bersepah2 kat dalam tu gatai hahahaha.

The first room on the right from the entrance door is Nazhan's room. The smallest room accommodate Nazhan's toys so that all the messiness and untidiness of his toys stays in that small room. But the problem is that; he rarely stay and play in that room. Must be that he feels lonely to play alone in that room. What happen all the time is that he'll brings his toys into the master bedroom and forced me to play it together with him. Kesimpulannya, bersepah jugak la toys dia kat tempat lain dalam rumah huhuhu.

The biggest room with 6 tatamis (Japanese mat) is the master bedroom which is located in front of the kitchen *jadi kalau lapar atau dahaga tengah malam, dekat jer nak bangun gi dapur*. The other room were supposed to be the living room where we should placed TV and cabinet inside it. But, as hubby and I HAVE to watch movie before going to bed, we decided to just placed all the entertainment items in the master bedroom. Both hubby and I find it easier to sleep while watching movie, kind of weird huh?. Plus, it will be much easier for us to watch any soccer match in the middle of the night without troubling ourselves to move to next room *dasar pemalas angkat pungung, padahal dekat sebelah je pon sengihnampakgigi ngeee*.

We don't have bed in this new home as hubby find it is not necessary to sleep on bed and so he insisted that it is comfy enough to sleep on the layers of futons (comforter macam tilam TOTO). The 'base' of our 'bed' is actually our old-and-not-so-cosy sofa bed. If according to Japanese culture, we should fold and placed the futons inside the big closet in the morning and take it out again before going to bed in the night. Since we don't really have enough time to tidy up the layers of futons everyday, we just left it like that everyday and assume the layers of futons as our bed *dasar pemalas nak lipat sengihnampakgigi ngeee*.

Our master bedroom is facing the nice and enchanting view of the hills. At night, romantic scenery of film can be shoot from our bedroom's sliding door as the moon can be easily observed from the balcony. Mula lah I berangan nak gantung buaian berjaring yang macam orang ikat kat pokok tepi pantai tu kan. However considering the fact that it is not safe for Nazhan as he might be climbing on it; I terus batalkan hasrat tak berapa murni I tu. Lagipun, bila dah masuk musim sejuk nanti..tak der nye nak bersidai kat balkoni tu lama2 pun kan sengihnampakgigi eheh.

As we are so used to the concept of living in a small home before this, it wasn't easy for us to adapt living in this home in the first place. It's funny when hubby cracks a joke that he wanted to rent the other room as we seldom use that room gatai hahaha. So we use the third room which were supposed to be the living room as a changing room where we hanged our clothes only. Takperlah, if ada tetamu nak datang rumah baru lah kami re-deco this room to be a guest room or a living room. But then, in the near time ni I doubt anyone wants to come to visit us at our new home sebab tak larat kan bulan2 puasa ni nak panjat tangga naik sampai tingkat 5 hohoho.

So far, I have lose some weight living in this new home as we are living on the 5th floor without any means of elevator. I was forced to perform daily exercise climbing up and down the stairs everyday. *Ke I turun berat sebab bulan puasa eh?* I'm not sure which is the driving factor but I'm quiet bothered with the fact that my weight is only 40kg now huuhuhuhu. I just hope that I'm perfectly fit and healthy despite the fact that I'm now underweight..sigh~.


Psssstttt : kalau kat Malaysia rumah macam ni di kira kecik la kan?. Tapi di Jepun, rumah macam ni dikira dah luas sangat dah ni...so contradict kan?
