A housecleaning Sunday

Hey man, what's happening to me? Is it becoz 岁月不留情, or something strange happening to me? How come I find myself becoming a family man more and more now? Woke up late today, went out to eat at a HK restaurant then headed to the local super to pick up some goods to setup my visitor's room as my family will be visiting me soon. Then did like loads of laundry, cleaned the place once more and felt nice about the sparkling environment now. Geez, normally I would just hang out and play around, but now i'm like doing housechores eveyweek...? I guess that's the difference when living out alone my yourself for a long time I guess. BTW, still living and spending like a local cuz my HSBC account stuff still hasn't been fixed yet. My acc mgr back in Toronto homebranch was very helpful when I called her last night though, hopefully she'll get someting working out for me... so, i'm somewhat cash-strapped for now... other than spending on stores that has visa... gosh, I love visa; don't leave home without it ;)

Welcome to my world man! I become obsessed about tidying up my place since I have to happen my daily life by myself.

It just feels good when you arrive a nice, and clean home after a tiring day from work, isnt it?

Ha ha... Ajeya and Henry are right; staying alone does make you want to clean the place eh? Today I went to Ikea afterwork to pick up some living utiensils to brighten up the place and also make stuff more convenient.

Bah, i'll play with ur cats and make a mess our of ur place when I'm back drew :p

Unfortunately the banks here are like so far away - and it's just too far to travel around just for banks without a car... I did open two local accounts too but unfortunately it doesn't help much as transferring $$$ is a hassle too... not sure why China is so unorganized.
