What do i have in those cartons?
We got a place in Muara. With 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and a bathroom. It’s big enough for 2 and it’s warm and cozy. Only thing i’m not particularly comfortable initially are the colorful walls. Each room is painted a different color, living room is in blue, bedrooms are in purple, kitchen is not too bad, it’s tiled all the way up to the ceiling. Took me awhile for me to get use to the colorful walls.
Well, i must say the house is very well equipped. We have a sofa set, a dining set, a queen-size bed for the master bedroom, 2 single beds for the 2nd bedroom, a TV, a DVD player and for the kitchen… we have a washing machine, fridge, microwave, rice cooker and a boiler. Isn’t it fantastic?! Ready to move in condition. Which helped cut down a lot on cost and the amount of stuffs needed to be shipped over. The movers were astonished by the number of cartons i had, not because there were too many, but because i didn’t even filled half the container booked.
I only have 11 medium size carton boxes. And here’s what i’ve packed… Most of the stuffs brought over are old, as i don’t plan to bring them home at the end of our stay in Brunei.
Used utensils, appliances, dishes, cookware, and etc for the kitchen.
Half the cartons are filled with my fav. Taiwanese instant noodles. Rest are cans of pork knuckles, Aik Cheong black coffee, some food containers, etc.
Bought a Philip DVD player, HDMI cable to hook my laptop to the TV, DVDs to keep me occupied when bored, an Amway eSpring water filtration system which i totally trust (i’ve seen what it can filter out, imagine fresh orange juice or coffee filtered into pure drinking water with minerals still intact). Remember, you can’t drink water off the tap here in Brunei.
Most of the kitchen cabinets here in the houses of Brunei are built without any in-built shelves. Below is an example. So you might want to get some shelves or large containers to keep your stuffs organised or away from the spiders (for my case).
