搬屋 Moving home

[Scroll down for English]

終於搞掂。

搬屋最令人痛苦的並非在忙亂的家中通宵達旦的收拾細軟,而是要被迫去面對自己那不堪回首的過去。

翻箱倒籠,細看那些被遺忘的東西,不情不願的把自己的歷史重看一篇:當年買下的衣裳,現在已不合穿,才驚覺自己的身型暴漲了不知多少個碼。看到那些不會再穿的舊衣服,才發現自己的品味的改變,但也不禁問自己為何當年會浪費那些金錢去買那麼多核突的衣服。見到某些衫,書,雜物甚至兒時的寶貝時又不其然會想起那些東西背後的故事,驚嘆一句人面全非。駭然發現一、兩件男裝衣物,不禁會想起當年也曾深愛過,但經一事長一智,誓神劈願將來也不會再做這麼傻的事,也不會胡亂去開始一段新感情。

由尋找租金相宜地點適中的新居,到收拾舊東西固然痛苦,但我倒是十分感激有這機會去重新檢閱、整理自己一遍。把東西重置,丟掉不再需要的,騰出新的空間,迎接新的一頁。

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.
