Moving day


Finally! We've moved into our new flat in Mui Wo. The move was surprisingly hassle-free, considering we had a choice of only one mover. The usual ones, like Columbia, didn't even bother to respond with a quote when we said we were moving to Mui Wo.

There are two moving companies in Mui Wo but only one -- Lee Hing Lung (2984-2268) which also doubles as the gas shop -- seems to be open for business all the time).

The two guys who came to pack were so nice they didn't complain at all about the huge amount of knick knacks and books we seem to have amassed in just three years at our old flat.

They did, however, panic at the number of boxes that were required and had to radio back for more boxes. Our stuff got transported in a van AND the truck that was usually used to make gas cylinder deliveries, but who cared as long as they got there in one piece?

Moving the cat was another story. She had to go by freight so that meant the slow ferry. She spent the entire 50-minute journey trying to bite her way out of the metal mesh and, by the time we reached the flat, we were all too tired to do any unpacking!
