we live in a quaint, but also crowded neighborhood. some parts are just unbearable to me cos i hate crowded places. cars are parked illegally on both sides of the road at night, especially near the train station. though we're blessed to have found a place truly away from the hustle & bustle just hundred of meters away, surrounded by trees. it has been almost 2 years now since we moved into the area.
we went out on a walk a few weeks back. a rare occasion to actually drag ourselves out of the house so early in the morning when it's not a working day. i planned to go to the supermarket (about 2km away) and maybe buy some fresh fruits. guess what, it was still closed by the time we got there! already sweating buckets, we turned around & made our way home, empty handed. at least we worked out ;)
K and i have been talking about moving to another neighborhood, probably soon. we definitely need more space & currently some of our neighbors are much less considerate that i hoped them to be. we've been startled out of our sleep way too many times (to the sound of doors slammed at 2am in the morning, people moving heavy things, etc.) the downside of living in a flat\apartment, i guess. perhaps the walls and floors are too thin (it is a really, really old building) or we're living among giants! ha. i'd probably miss my walks here though, there's just so much to see.
