搬屋 Moving home
Finally it's all done.
The most painful about moving is not packing millions of the stuff overnight before the movers arrive, but being forced to go through your past that you've been striving to forget.
So that was exactly what I went through: looking at all those dresses, shirts, skirts and pieces that do not register in my shopping memories, I was shocked to see how many of them no longer fit, wondering since when size 38 has become so distant. And it wasn't just about the size - just why did I waste so much money on those ugly pieces? Were they impulsive purchase or was that because I had terrible taste back then? When I went through boxes and boxes of books, CDs, DVDs, stuff from my childhood, I couldn't help taking a trip down the memory lane, recalling the memories behind these items. The worst was to discover some male clothing items hiding behind my pile of clothes - let's leave everything in the past, but I was glad that I had the chance to learn a lesson, and I will be much more cautious in future.
From searching for a new apartment with affordable rent at a good location to packing some 30 boxes of stuff has been a real pain, but I was grateful that I had the opportunity to re-examine my past, and re-organise myself for a better, brighter future.
