Yes! Yes! Yes! After nearly 1 month in Australia, we finally moved-in to our own house! The location is very close to my uni and the rate is below $200/week - suitable for a pokai student. Oh yes, the rental here is paid weekly, not monthly like in Malaysia. All renting process must go through an agent with a very systematic procedure.
At first I was quite shocked (eyes bulging, heart pumping and all that =D) with the rental rate, especially after converting to Ringgit! I still have not yet adapt to the currency change. I keep on converting every cents.
From the outside, the house may not be so appealing. Houses in Toowoomba are generally very cute - some look like rich Malay kampung houses, some very cottage like, and some are modern. Mine on the other hand looks suspiciously like a setinggan.
But don't judge a house by its setinggan-ness! The interior is super cute, ala apartment gitu~ Very suitable for my little family.
Now it's time to fill the spaces with all the garage sales conquest. "Deko Bersama Eric Leong... Kejuk ke?~"
