Our 450 Sq. Ft. Home

Well, as most of you know, Clark and I have been living in a Hotel for a month and we have loved it...maid service, pool, complimentary breakfast. The day came where it was time to look for a real place to live :( We got an agent and went to a condo building (it was literally the first condo place built in Singapore...no joke) that was about 15 minutes from the hotel. I was nervous because I didn't know what to expect...and I was quite surprised when I saw the condo...it was 45o freaking square feet! Condos in Singapore go very fast and we knew this place wouldn't last a day even though it was so small. The location of the condo is great because it is 10 minutes away from Clark's work. We got the place for a steal but there is much work that needs to be done. Let me tell you about our place...new bathroom but the toilet is right next to the shower (i mean right next to it...you could wet your feet if someone just took a shower)...one bedroom with a new t.v (we will need to get cable)...new full or queen bed( i couldn't tell)...small closet...computer table...small fridge and microwave... stainless sink that you would see in an outside barn...small washer...no oven (you use an electric stove top cooker)...no dryer (you hang your clothes out the window on a bamboo stick (we are NOT because it looks GHETTO), instead we are hanging them on a rod in the house from the ceiling (it gets hot so the clothes dry quick)...tile floor ...and a nice table with 2 chairs...So basically Clark promised me that if we took this place then we would have money for other things such as eating out and trips. Looks like I get to visit Ikea!!! I would show pictures but I think I might wait until it looks more homeyyyy. Move in date: July 12...wish us luck :)
