To the penthouse, baby!
Alex and I have finally moved into our fabulous new apartment in the absolute center of the city (if Bangkok actually had a center, this would be it). We love our new place and can’t believe that we didn’t move downtown earlier. Once we get home from work (usually 45 minutes – an hour on the school bus), we have the whole city at our fingertips. We can walk to some of our favorite places to shop, eat, and stroll, and we’re exactly 1 minute walk away from the nearest BTS station. I keep pinching myself to see if I’m dreaming!
Thankfully we decided to use Transpo (a total steal at around US$200) to move our stuff (instead of trying to cart all 155 boxes, plus beds, tables, and bookcases down here ourselves). They were fantastic, as usual, and has us packed out last Friday and moved in by Saturday evening. We spent the rest of the long weekend moving things around and starting to decorate just in time for our very first house guest, my wonderful edublogging friend from New Zealand, Chrissy.
I think it’s starting to look pretty good… Here’s a tour:
Upstairs we have the two bedrooms and a great walk-in closet in the master. Both bedrooms have full bath, and there’s a third bathroom downstairs for guests. We have a great walk-in pantry with washer, dryer and lots of shelving off the kitchen as well. The rest of the pictures are posted on Flickr, if you’re interested.
The floor to ceiling windows and loft-style open LR are just amazing – everything feels so open and light! We used to live in a beautiful place in CT when we first graduated from university, a renovated ribbon mill with super high ceilings and huge windows. It was my absolute favorite home until we moved in here.
Now I’m going to have a tough time dragging myself away to go on vacation!
