We finally moved in to our “new home” on 26th January. It is a very small but cosy 2-room apartment conveniently located right across a big shopping mall (with familiar tenants like Parkson, Carrefour, H&M, Uniqlo, McDonald’s, KFC etc.) and a lovely neighbourhood park. The Metro subway station is just 10 minutes’ walk away.
So far, we are adjusting well to the new environment and lifestyle here. The weather has been good and kind to us – it’s cold but not too extreme. We love our new home and the neighbourhood, the food here is not too bad and shopping (esp fresh fruits and veggies) is cheap!
We visited 6 international schools during our “Great School Hunt”. International schools here are very, very costly with tuition fees averaging between 70,000yuan to 120,000yuan per year (RM35k-RM60k). We picked the one that is nearest to our home, which also turns out to be the most expensive one! *daddy sweats* I will start school after CNY.
In the meantime, I have been “doing nothing” at home. Besides doing Maths practice, bina ayat for BM and watching tv at home, mummy and I walk to the shopping mall (only 5 minutes’ walk away) almost everyday hehe. Everytime mummy walks into Carrefour, I will sulk and complain I’m bored because she takes forever to buy groceries. There’s just too many new stuff to see and browse!
Here are some random photos to do the rest of the talking…
