The first weekend of moving in went extremely well. Instead of doing a one-time big-time thing, we opted to do things nice and slow. I think that decision was a good thing. The whole process was so relaxed.
Last Saturday, my sister lent us her truck, where we loaded some items from La Vista and brought it to our unit at Pioneer Highlands. We hired four men to carry our stuff. The whole transfer took us 20 minutes from unloading the items to bringing it to the unit, and that includes a small ref, an aircon, three balikbayan boxes full of various items, racks, foldable tables, chairs, a cooler and cleaning materials. Not bad at all! And since the boys are already there, I asked them to install the window-type air-conditioning unit that we brought.
Sunday was cleaning day, and similar to the set-up from the previous day I brought in extra help to clean the unit up. Three to be exact. These guys cleaned everything – from the rooms, windows, walls and floors to even washing the dishes, glasses, plates and utensils that were given to us in our wedding a few years back.
Tomorrow, the sofa and coffee table that we bought from Our Home will be delivered, while the bed frame, mattress and a new 1.5HP aircon is scheduled to be delivered on Saturday. We just need to clear this with the building admin and it’s a go.
There are still a lot of items that need to be bought or transferred, but I’m sure everything will be in order very soon.
