7th Heaven

If my arithmetic is right, I have just transfered to my 7th boarding house in 5 years.   We had to move again since we are expecting additional people to join us this year.

When I first came to Manila to start looking for a job, I only brought one bag for clothes and personal neccesities.  Clothes are good for at least 1 1/2 weeks.  Two pairs of shoes, one for formal job interviews, and another for all terrain, jobhunt friendly shoes. 

When, I had my first job, I only had that one bag with me to transfer to a new location.  Everything I had was in just one bag and I can easy carry it on a bus or a jeepney.


After five years, I need a big van to transfer my things.  There were three of us in the previous boarding house and here was my contribution.  Three bags of clothes, five shoe boxes.  four boxes of books and magazines, and four big plastic bags of personal stuffs.

Hopefully, I’d be staying longer in our new boarding house.  It’s very tiring and stressful to look for a place, negotiate a price and transfer your stuff.  I wonder how many boxes and bags I’d be needing on the next transfer since this year, I have a long list of “Things to Buy”.
