we just got our evicton notice from the landlord this afternoon. he's selling the flat when the lease ends come february. hay. i wish he wouldn't. this flat has grown in on me. it's small and cozy and well, it's near the beach. it's just a 20-minute walk.

after getting the notice, we did some checking on the other available flats in lamma (which btw is an island that's about 30 minutes away by ferry from hk). we found one that's nearer to the beach. about 10 minutes or so but it's farther from the pier. bout 20 to 30 mins.

the place was fully furnished. i liked the ambience. it had two big rooms and the view outside was good. bukid and not the urban jungle variety. the price tag was hk$6,500 but the 
landlord agreed to lease it for $6,000 a month.
so, just 6 hours after seeing the notice, i  thought i had a new place to crash into by dec. 15.

unfortunately, my flatmate changed her mind when she checked it out earlier this evening. 
apparently, the street leading to it wasn't well lighted and she 
balked at the thought of walking home late at night in that place. so now, 
we'll have to wait for some nice flat to be available  in the market.

but i'm thinking of going on my own. of finding a bachelor's pad in hk island. the price range there is hk3,000 to hk3,500. and 
that's already furnished. hmmm.
