House Repair and Moving-Out

As I have mentioned in my previous post, we will be moving out from my place where I have stayed for 13 months. The reason for moving out is to have a bigger space for me, my baby, M and to the house helper.

But before we finally bid goodby to this not-so-spacious place I got before, the landlady requested me to carefully check every stuff here and if I found something repairable, I need to do them before moving out. While packing our stuff, I just found something that we really need to repair here and I think we need handless spring plungers to make this done. M is not here at home yet, though I need ‘a man’ to do this, I will try myself to make this really work for me. LOL!

Anyways, wish me good luck guys in doing all these stuff before moving out.

QSC K10 Powered Speaker

We will be moving to a new house the soonest. And part of it is the setting up of new sound system at home. Actually, not just a sound system, but almost all of the interior designs, including the furniture and other stuff in the kitchen should be checked and set up first.

But since we still have some of those old home appliance and furniture, we will be just thinking for now on how to complete our audio visual set up. I wanted to buy qsc k10 at musicians friend, but M disagreed with me since he still having a functional speaker. Though it is a bit smaller than the one I found online, he still insisted to use the old one. And he even suggested to better buy other musical component which we don’t have yet rather replacing those old ones.

Maybe, we will first assess what we really needed to buy or not.

Educational Travel

Being in the post graduate school made me miss much those educational travels which I only experienced during my elementary, high school and college years. But as what my classmates told me, we shouldn’t be envious to those little kiddos anymore sine after we finish this degree, we can have unlimited travels then even abroad for as long as we have our own passports. Smiley

Talking about passports, I am getting hard time processing my passport because of some clerical errors in my birth certificate which my mom has already tried working on before but failed to make all things done. My friends suggested me to check passports.com passport travels since she has known from her friends that the said company is reliable. How I wish this time my passport processing be successful!
