Based on the previous post, people might think that,
'E'eleh, rumah kau best sangat ke nak puji puji and all? Tak baik tau kutuk kutuk rumah lama kalau dah dapat rumah baru. Mentang-mentanglah dah ada rumah baru. Rumah bawah pun cool la.'
I also think like that when I read my own post and feel bad about it.
Don't get me wrong okay. I was comparing MY old house with MY not so new home, we are so happy with all the transformation that we did and will do to this house, which we can't do it in our rental. its rental, as for me, if its rental, kan sedikit membazir kalau kita cat, turap lubang kat depan and tukar post box yang sentiasa bocor tu?
the truth is, the owner of our rental house was going to sell it few months ago when we said that we wanted to move out. so we made a decision to buy that house. we already discussed with my lawyer friend Dina on purchasing a subsale house, what documents should we have and what procedure should we follow. we even talked to our dear owner to cut off the agent so that we can get cheaper price and azmi knows a bit about the process of buying the subsale house, so it should be no problem. we are in love with that house as it is the first house that we live as a couple. That house has a memory of us. plus, walaupun sesetengah jiran macam tak considerate, but most of the neighbours are so cool even we don't know most of them. I feel safe when I stayed alone, and my friends can come or sleepover no matter what time it is. the best part, during raya time, we dont have to worry about how quiet the place is because some neighbours celebrate their raya here, with pelitas and children laughing playing bunga api and i don't have to worry about pencuri or si pecah masuk rumah. so the place is literally 'safe'.
when weeks went by, the owner suddenly said that he doesn't want to sell the house. sayang katanya. we are so disappointed, tapi nak buat macam mana kan, tak ada rezeki. nak tak nak, memang kena pindah dari rumah tu.. according to plan, we want to let the apartment and stay here. tapi, what to do kan?
kami dah berangan macam-macam; we want to fix the water pool in front of the house, we want to add extra awning to the post box so that when its rain, the letters wont get wet, we want to install awning for the car porch, install kitchen cabinet and get to know the neighbours even more. And paint the house.
so here we are, we are still renting until end of this june. sambil-sambil tu pindah barang sikit-sikit. tinggal barang-barang besar je nak pindahkan. lepas ni, we say bye bye lah kat rumah tu (tiba-tiba nak nangis). Aku sangat pasti yang aku akan nangis bila tengok rumah tu dah kosong. and the truth about not staying there any more, makes me feel.... sad.
But life must go on, I am thankful for what Allah has planned for us. He knows best. and I really hope that our new life in our new home will be blessed and full of happiness.. ameen.. :)
