Lemonade Time

Got some good news from my property developer this morning. It seems that they are willing to reinstate my voided S&P provided that I get financing on the unit as soon as possible. This means that as soon as I can get the bank to release the progress payment to the property then I will continue to have a claim to the unit. I guess that they would rather have a confirmed buyer now rather than leaving it to the open market. I couldn’t be happier since that means that I would not be losing the RM 18.5K I already dumped into the deal. It would have been too much of a heartache to lose all that money.

On the flip side of things, the pipes went dry in my current apartment over the weekend for no apparent reason or notice. It was just fine on Saturday morning when I took my shower and used up all the water I had collected to wash up my bathroom. The moment I finished washing the walls of my bathroom, the water flow slowed down to a trickle before stopping completely shortly after. I didn’t even get a chance to collect the water I need in my emergency water containers around my place.

I waited for the water to come back for a few hours before I gave up and called my brother to come pick me up. I had a load of wash that I absolutely had to do that weekend and going back to my parents house during the weekend looked to be the only viable option. So I went back on Saturday night, spent the night over and came back Sunday night to find that the taps were still dry. It was good that I was prepared enough to bring my huge water containers with me when I went back to Selayang or else I would have no water to bathe in this morning.

I do hope they fix the water problem today or else it would mean another trip back to Selayang to get water for tomorrow morning. Not that I don’t mind getting the free home cooked meal that my mum would practically force me to take when I go back but the thought of lugging those heavy water containers up 4 flights of stairs does not make me a happy camper. I guess carrying all that water will be my workout replacement for today’s workout session.

When life throws lemons at you, you better prepare to make lemonade.
