Moving Day (in pictures)

I still remember the day we went house-hunting for our first house in Bangkok - back when Sam was preparing to move to Bangkok. This place stood out among them all, not only because of the price, but because it had a closed kitchen. And you know how important that is with Chinese cooking! Here are some pictures of times in the condo and our eventual moving day. Great times, they were! :)

Great place for singing out loud - we had almost the whole floor to ourselves (paparazzi moment).
Both of us in our usual spot watching the tv.

Receiving our first house guest, Mel, and playing Scrabbles together.

Our first dinner guest, Yumi, and a home-cooked meal!

The packing begins! 
It's amazing how much you can accumulate in a year!

I was box lady for a couple of days, trying to get Carrefour to part with their boxes. So we've got grape biscuits, Comfort and Carrefour giant boxes, it was a nightmare getting rid of them.

It took us two cab trips (filled to the brim) and a pickup truck making 2 rounds to get all of our stuffs over.

Some before and after pictures:

Once everything was out of the house, it hit me how much I was going to miss this place :) It was, after all, our first home together. Nevertheless, we'll be expecting to have as much fun in our new place, as the following posts would testify. Stay tuned!

Finally taking a breather after a hard day's work.
