it's official

I gots to get a move on from my current apartment on the Upper East. Been wanting to move to the East Village anyway, where exceptional yakitori and ramen is just a short walk away and available at odd hours of the night. Where a 6-pack of beer does not cost $14 at the deli. Where a trip to Trader Joe's and Bikram Yoga does not entail a subway ride.

It will be a pain to move though and will cost a lot of $$$ because not only will moving entail new security deposits and such fees, but also buying new furniture since I've been living in a furnished apartment for the last 1 1/2 years. But at the same time, it would be fun to get to decorate an entire space. I've never done it in my life so I'm excited!

A few snapshots from the IKEA website of what I dream to have in my apartment (but probably will not). Don't you wish you could live in an IKEA catalog sometimes? Kind of like Edward Norton's character in Fight Club (well, before he blew up the place at least).



Oh IKEA, you and I will be having a summer fling.

Weeell it's not quite congratulations yet since we haven't found a place yet! We just know that we officially have to move. But anyway I'm glad to hear you're up for the furniture assembly Linda! I'll provide the bolognese if you come with your drill!

Kix - thank you! Ikea is awesome, it has to come to the Philippines already!

Hi Celine,
You're moving?! Was hoping to run into you and finally meet you when I move to the UES in July. But I can totally understand. I currently live in the UWS and I'm missing it already!

Awww we really should meet one of these days Aggie! I love the Upper West! I think it has such a laidback vibe, and you're so close to the park. I'd totally move there except my work and extracurricular activities are all on the East side so I would just spend all my money on cab fare ...
