My Japanese style apartment… not XD

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

About Kimono Party Girl

I was born and bred in Singapore for the first 20 years of my life, and then I decided that even after flying all over the world as a flight attendant, life is still too boring. So, in search of more adventure and add spice to my life, I quit my job, packed up, and left for Japan - which is, to me, the promised land. I've always been fascinated with Japan ever since I was 8, thanks to Ayumi Hamasaki, aka the Britney Spears of Japan. She's the first J-pop singer that I have been obsessed with, and my first contact with the Japanese language was through her lyrics. Yup, I first learned my Hiragana from her song 'I am'. But what really sealed the deal was my first trip to Japan in 2010. The fresh air, the beautiful cherry blossoms, the endless fast fashion trends and the awesome food was what made Japan the land of my dreams, and it had since become my goal to one day live, work and party in Japan. So after working like a horse as a flight attendant for 2 years and saving up a decent amount, I made a big leap of faith and moved to the land of the rising sun. I have studied one year of Japanese and two years of graphic design. Currently, I'm in the midst of shukatsu (就活 - job hunting). Wish me luck!
