`Moving from Hledan to Sanchaung

Three years ago this week, I entered the pink doorway of my Yangon apartment for the first time. Today, I moved all my stuff to my new place. Well, to be honest, I didn't move it. I had it moved.

This was a first for me. I misspoke in the video. I'm only 46 years old. But even then, never before in my life have I had movers. Guys who picked up all my stuff and put it in a truck. I didn't have to lift a finger. However, I did. I moved one small batch of crap to the truck. Symbolically. Better yet, these same mover guys took all my stuff up to my new place.

I think I'm going to like my new place a lot. It's newly built, and when it comes to things like cockroach accessabilty, leaky rooves and doorways, overall fit and finish, new matters. I'm the first person to live in my flat. It's a place of flickering (at least on video) lights and really slippery floors. At least, Badger found them slippery.


  1. Yup, stuff does accumulate. Hope you get settled quickly and post pictures of it all clean and tidy. Ae you going to have a cleaning lady again? I think it would be great to get ahead of needing one.

  2. Great to see your new digs J,,,,,looks like a nice place too....glad to see Badger enjoyed himself.... :)......

  3. I am so very happy for you! Congratulations! Enjoy your new home! It looks lovely! Blessings, Lynn
