What do you need when you need to dry your wet laundry?
I’m staying at 90s HDB flat, and here are the items I need:
To lift the bamboo pole the wet laundry, bring it out of window and stuff it to the bamboo pole holder and ensure it doesn’t break and land at ground floor.
A platform. I 1.56m tall short, I can hardly reach the bamboo pole holder outside the window without a platform.
The legendary Sun that keeps playing hide and seek with everyone, that leads to my next needed item…
Some clothing are just too precious to me, and I will over-turn them before hanging them in the sun to dry, to prolong the colors of my clothes, especially black ones.
If I am lucky, I have the Sunshine at the kitchen windows, else I can only air-dry my laundry in the living room. And yes, I am lucky for I live in the 90s HDB, where living room is not in a match-box size.
I thought things should turn better when I move into a new BTO flat, until I see the new laundry hanging racks.
Perhaps we should get a dryer, I did a quick research and at my best knowledge, there are 2 types of laundry dryer, #1 electric dryer and #2 gas dryer. In any case, both are not cheap, in terms of product and electricity / gas bills.
It’s always so welcoming to be back at Singapore airport. Some countries make me wanting to stay longer, while some just make me miss home.
It was a short trip, but enough yo make me miss my home country.
High standard of living makes me want to visit some countries for shopping, but I never want to stay there for long.
Constant train breakdown makes me complain about my life. Then i realised, at least our ez-Link card allows us to take all sorts of public transport, while some countries uses different cards for different transport. Ours often breakdown (at least recent years), but stations between different lines are linked, we don’t need to cross any bridge or road like some countries do.
I am taught to queue for everything. You want something? Go queue for it; but this doesn’t appear in every countries. Cross only when there’s green light, but not every countries green man blinks. Pay as per the price tag amount; but in some countries you need to bargain and half it (it’s tiring and I don’t like it)! Well it’s pretty obvious where I went to, isn’t it?
Having educated in the city, there are many things that I donnot have knowledge about (blame it on my little reading knowledge too). For example, that solid looking ground might be just a thin layer of hardened soil on top of muddy water.
But I really enjoyed the quality customer service there. Be it at the street market or malls, you know why they are called the Land of Smiles.
Oh my bed, I’m back to my comfy firm bed and high pillow! What more can I wish for, for now…
What did you play with, as a kid? What was your favorite toy?
I didn’t have much toys as i kid. I have lego, i have 1 barbie and 1 cindy (probably a competitor of barbie doll). But i guess my favorite past time was that tiny shallow hole in broken concrete floor at the corridor, i reckon it was about 3cm wide.
I used to hide different things in that tiny hole. I hid “diamonds” quite often, those decoration plastic gems on tee shirts that i found in the house. I hid red beans too, because beans looked cute. I filled the hole with water thinking it will harden like ice and fill the hole.
All of the above that I did, were washed away by Town Council when they cleaned the corridor. But i’ll just continue to hide little things i found. I don’t know why there were so many plastic gems at home, i could just continue hiding “diamonds”.
Now that we have hamsters at home, i realised i led a hamster childhood. Whenever sista tiny hamsters’ cages, she would empty the cages before washing them. All the tiny food that the hamsters hid, would then be thrown away. But hamsters never give up, they just continue to hide food under their litters, and we continue to clean their mansions (cages) just like how the Town Council cleaned our corridor.
