A colleague from N’s work gave him the details of a property agent in HK named Ben. His colleague recommended Ben because he didn’t mind him, as he was quite transparent and didn’t have the usual property agent BS. I half jokingly said “I wonder if it’s that jerk stick guy who I went with to go see a property last time we were in HK”. N quickly dismissed the possibility, as a normal person would, since there are a bajillion agents in HK. But after the dancing doctor yesterday – which I am still floored about, btw 😱 – I am much more prepared for things with a very low likelihood to actually occur 😂 So I asked N to give me Ben’s number just to double check that we’re not liaising with the same person. And O-M-G, WE ARE ACTUALLY TALKING TO THE SAME PERSON. Seriously?! How is this happening?! My world is getting smaller and smaller!! 🤪🤪 So maybe I will be giving this guy a second chance after all 😊
Kitty has been very restless in the mornings, scratching numerous times around dawn, waking me up each time. Today I picked her up and sat with her on the couch, and she had her tail wrapped around my arm. She’s never done that before, and I thought that was really sweet. I would’ve taken a photo of it if I wasn’t so catatonic and hadn’t just been woken up for the third time in two hours in the middle of the night 😂
I spent the day continuing to prepare for this lovely move. I’ve posted online all the furniture that we want to sell, and two people have already expressed interest. I’m working with N’s countdown, and today is T minus 10 😱 We will be in single digits tomorrow! My own countdown is T minus 31, but I’ll be going back and forth between SG and HK during November as well, so I don’t actually have that many days to get everything sorted. Wahhh… It’s oh so close now! 😩
We had our last Ballroom lesson with our teacher today. That’s so sad. And then we had our last Latin practice too, as I don’t think we’ll be practising next week after the comp. We’ll probably just spend the evenings doing more culling and packing, and closing down accounts etc etc.
I must keep telling myself that this is all very exciting, a new chapter in our lives, a new adventure begins. Coz I still feel quite sad about it all 😔
