After a month of frantic search for apartments, hectic schedule filled with appointments with the real estate agent, and shuttling from place to place (I’m just kidding, it wasn’t such a mad rush), I’ve finally found a nice cosy apartment (that’s just putting it nicely; it’s actually cramped. no just kidding xD) located strategically in the heart of town, with all the necessary amenities nearby (like living in, I dunno, Newton in Singapore?), near Nipponbashi, which is near Namba, which is pretty much central Osaka (for those who are clueless about Osaka’s town map).
It’s western style, unfortunately, but nonetheless, it’s stylish, sophisticated, and above all, lady-like.
Because it IS a ladies’ mansion!
Ok enough of words here are some pics
My apartment only has 1 room. So once you enter my house you can immediately see my bed, my table, my dressing table, my closet and erm my luggages (I have nowhere else to put them… T~T). oh my dressing table is made out of cardboard boxes with a table cloth over it, by the way. Oh and did I mention that I assembled my own closet and bookcase? Awesome me, fuck yeah xD
My study table.
Before the exit is the kitchen, and on the right is the toilet. ignore the cardboard boxes sticking out by the door frame, please, I’ve already thrown them away. Look at the awesome bookcase that I’ve assembled myself XD
My awesome dressing table
Kitchen. Erm, ignore the mess and the cardboard.
My pretty bathroom. Now you see why it’s a ladies’ mansion. They have an in-built cabinet for toiletries under the sink. You hardly see this feature in other Osaka apartments’ bathrooms.
A better view of my awesome carpet.
Truth to be told, this is not my first choice when I was viewing apartments. I couldn’t move into my first choice because the management didn’t think I had fulfilled their requirements… Okay. But the next day I saw on the news that the area where my first choice is, had a robbery case. So thank god! I always believed things happen for a reason ^^ that is why I am here. I really love how convenient this area is, and how close my apartment is to my school and everywhere. Though it is still not much safer than the first one that I had liked, so far so good. As long as I don’t go out at night alone (and bikeless. it’s safer on a bike), I’m good.
Gosh, I really love my apartment, and I feel happy coming home everyday (even though I live alone and I have to climb 3 flights of stairs in order to reach my apartment. No the building doesn’t have elevators :()
But but, my dream school is in Kyoto 😦 Should I move out, I’m sure it’s gonna be hefty, troublesome and heartbreaking T~T
