– May Cycle Day 11 –
Yesterday I went to my apartment to clean it. I was shocked that it was so dirty. The previous tenant just left the apartment a couple days ago but the condition of the apartment seemed like it has never been cleaned for years. Seriously, there were spider web, the dust were very thick and it was everywhere. The previous tenant was a smoker, there were cigarettes butts everywhere. The bathroom condition were also terrible. The kitchen also very dirty. It’s so gross! How could a human being live in that kind of situation? 🤢 I’ve rent 3 different apartments while I live in China, and this is the worst cleaning project I’ve ever encountered. 😤
I took ibuprofen in the morning to make sure I can do physical work, and it worked. I did the first dusting, it took me hours. I even forgot to have lunch.
Today me and my husband will go there to do secondary cleaning. Mostly will be dusting and wiping windows and furniture. I’m ordering electric floor scrubs to clean the bathroom and the kitchen, so I’ll need to wait until it has arrived. We will also need to install shower curtain and water blocker. The current bathroom doesn’t have it. So when you take shower everything will be wet! I know some houses in China are like that. My first apartment in China had that kind of wet bathroom and it sucked!
We decided to move out because the current apartment is a studio apartment, a bit too small for us. We have so many junks! 😆😆😆 The second reason is because we live in a very busy building, going up and down the elevators could be a very frustrating experience. Especially when many Chinese people don’t know how to queue! The third reason is the bathroom. I don’t know how the builder did the piping, but every evening there would be a stinky smell comes out of the sink and the drain holes. It smells like poo! 🤢🤢🤢 Those are more than enough reason to move out of this place.
Our new apartment building is older than our current. It’s difficult to get 2 bedrooms apartment in a new building at downtown Nanjing, at least not in our budget ranges 😆😆😆. We are lucky to get this one. We just need to clean it and makes it our new home. The previous tenant made sure we have to work hard for it. Dang gross woman!
No pictures of the new apartment will be uploaded today, not when it looks super dirty! 😆😆😆
I had rectum and lower back pain this morning (2/10). I had taken 1 ibuprofen to relieve it.
We didn’t go to the new apartment. We will go tomorrow, maybe 😜
