Since being in the flat I think I have turned into a right housewife! I have basically been making food from scratch (which I am really proud of)
So far I’ve made, chilli con carne, chicken and lettuce congee (kinda like a rice pudding but it’s savoury), bacon and vegetable fried rice and macaroni and cheese (ok it’s fusilli but I didn’t have macaroni it still worked though).
The dish that I’m most proud of is that macaroni and cheese. I made the cheese sauce myself and my first time making a roux!
So I’ve moved into my flat with Ash and it is becoming more homely everyday.
The bedroom is a mess at the moment as I don’t have draws for my clothes yet :( but I’m getting there.
The move went quite smoothly. Everything in the flat on the 6th and then on the 7th I tidied the flat to make it look more presentable and homely. Ash made the sofa bed and bed which I’m really happy he did. I think I may have screamed to get them both done!
The first meal I cooked in the flat was spaghetti bolognese and tonight I cooked my first chilli con carne from scratch. I’m like a housewife!
I will do photos once the flat is actually looking like a flat!
More updates soon! X
A week today is my moving day!! I move into my flat on 7th August! How exciting!
I’ve moved a little bit of my stuff already into my flat when I had a day off. I was in there measuring things and making sure the things I want to buy can fit!
I’m kind of nervous as it’s my first flat and the fact I hate shopping doesn’t bode well haha
Ash’s dad will be helping on the Friday to get my stuff from Ikea to the flat :) at least it is flat packed but then we have the dawnting task of building a bed and a sofa bed :/ my Friday night will consist of building!
I’m determined to be sleeping in the flat on Friday night as it is our first night in the flat. Even if we don’t have the bed I will sleep on the floor!
More updates next week :D
Hello! Sorry for the 3 months silence! It’s been a very busy and emotional 3 months but I do have good news!
Me and Ash (known as drummer man on here) are moving into a little cosy flat in 18 days! :D although 18 days is still quite a while yet I’m rather excited to move in!
The landlord is very relaxed and even let us paint the flat if we wanted to. You never find a landlord like that. Oh I forgot to say this is a private rental so that’s why the landlord is relaxed.
Our next door neighbour, Elsa, is a lovely lady! She has a dog called Hugo and he’s so cute! She’s the lady who gets in touch with the landlord when things goes tits up.
The previous girl who rents the place is actually a friend of a friend. So that’s why I’ve gotten a flat so quickly! Eek!
I will keep you updated with my moving ventures! I can’t wait to decorate the flat and just spend time with Ash in our little place :)
Ciao for now xx
Since I’ve been in Taiwan I have been attracting many mosquitos :( here’s a few bites! I also have one on my bum and 2 on my face :( also a couple of new ones on my arms! Wahhhh. The bad thing about living in villages are the mosquitos, I dislike them :(
I leave Taiwan tomorrow :( it’s a rest day today as we’ve been going out non stop since I’ve arrived.
The food pictures are from a couple of days ago and the last one is from today. We went on epic walks and the food was great fuel! I will post some landscape photos up soon as they’re not on my phone!
My dad is leaving to go back to Hong Kong today so my mum’s sister made lunch. We ate at home and this is called “Ju Ga Fan.” We had a mixture of food today, it was nice to have something at home instead of eating out.
For breakfast today I had Shanghai dumplings. These were very juicy! Juicier than the ones I had in Hong Kong.
