just another moving story

Stephen and I were still lovers when we found this place but the developer knew we will be wed in a few months' time and so they had actually allowed us to sign a housing loan agreement with them even though I have yet to sign it myself first as a single person.

This house is like a "rent-to-own" house. It's funny because it is payable in 30 years. We will be like 60+ years old then. Only God knows if we're going to live that long but we're also dreaming of winning in the lotto so that we can be able to pay it all up earlier in our lifetime. Now I'm thinking, how do we win any lotto if we didn't even buy tickets for it? Well, it's been two years of renting to own; so there's still twenty-eight more years to go! We've learned to love this place, so we really hoped this can become "officially" our own. If only Oprah can bump into this post and then make this dream come true. Oh, Oprah, you found Charice, how about finding this post and fulfill a wish?

When we moved here, we didn't really have quite a lot of things to bring with us. If we did, we would have thought about getting the services of a moving company where the moving can be a whole lot easier. Our friend in the United States had mentioned that she had just moved using this kind of service. It was so easy for her to get in touch with a reliable service to help her pack and move. Anyway, like I said, we didn't need that kind of service when we moved here. When we bought the refrigerator, it went ahead of us in the house because the purchase came with a free delivery offer. My relative has a personal truck and so she and her husband had helped us with the move. Except for the gas which we filled up for the ride, they wouldn't even allow us to pay them anything out of gratitude. We were so thankful for them! Now, isn't this a moving story? :-)

It's great that you and the hubby have a house to call your own. Plus, Dipx2 will have plenty of space to make fond memories in!

I feel you on the 30 year mortgage plan. It's like that in the U.S. too. By the time you're done paying off your mortgage, it's about time to retire! ;)

@shanix: hehehe.. on a second thought, i'm not really counting on it. i know there are other people who need more help than we do (the homeless ones, etc.)
@bchai: i know.. that'd be a good motivation, too.. LOL

You deserve to have someone like Oprah fulfill your wish! (Or winning the lotto!)

Moving is hard work, I don't look forward to whenever we move again but it is nice to know there are moving services to help make it easier. It sounds like you got the best case scenario with your relative when you moved!

yes, glad to have a relative with us who helped us with the move at no charge :-)
