Apartment Hunting

For the past two weeks,
B and I have been helping out a good friend search for decent size cheap apartments with 2 rooms and a parking space. Location is important too so we're only looking at PJ and Subang. After two weeks of searching high and low for cheap rentals that fit his requirements, all I can say is apartment hunting is not as easy as it used to be! adus

I remember when
B and I first got married and how we managed to find a nice little condo for us to move into immediately following the whole ceremony and celebration. We wanted to start our lives together ASAP so we started our search for reasonably cheap condos early, in a location that was convenient for the both of us work-wise.

It took us only a week to find a cute
cozy condo in KL. Though our mailing address said KL, the location was actually bordering on PJ, which was great seeing that I've always been a PJ girl and I didn't want to start married life with B in an unfamiliar territory. senyumkenyit

In the case of our friend however, two weeks of cheap apartment hunting only led us to run-down apartments that are lacking in both security and facilities. Of course you have to pay a little bit more if you want a more acceptable apartment but our friend is also on a tight budget, which makes this whole apartment hunting more difficult.

We've not given up hope yet but times like these I wish we had a cool search engine like
MyCheapApartments to help secure the right living place for our buddy. Catering to the US, MyCheapApartments is recognized as a leading website to search for cheap rentals, minus all the hassle. Here, you can easily find a customized inventory of cheap rentals in your preferred neighborhood. The site is also user-friendly so instead of coming home with a headache after a day of apartment hunting, you will leave the site as one happy camper; already planning your move date and preparation! Smiley

I wish it was that easy for our friend. Perhaps I could talk him into increasing his budget a little bit more and maybe we'll even find a rental unit where I'm living! It would be awesome to have a close friend living within earshot of us!

Lil,  December 19, 2009 12:54 PM

Dear Marzie,
Hope it is not too late to comment here now. As you already know I am also trying to get aterrace house in KL so desperately, kalau aprt. need tingkat bawah sekali, dah pasang macam2 agents but still no luck, I cannot be too choosing now, just to have a "tapak" first, just in case while checking the aprt for your friend, perhaps you might come across some maybe meant for me, just take the tel nos and I will try to call the landlords myself. This is really a big favour but sambil2 checking for yr friend kan, you dah tulong satu hamba Allah, ok?

My e-mail address:

Please Marzie, I'm asking you only while checking for yr friends, sambil2, hope it is ok with you. I am still trying by other means as well.

A million thanks in advance,
Lots of Love and hugzzz :-[ :-[ :-[ :) ;) 8-) :* :* :*

Lil,  December 19, 2009 12:59 PM

correction : I cannot be too choosy..

before I forget my budget is say RM750,00 to RM800,00 per month, if more just let me know. Really hope you dont mind, just while checking for yr friend, don't just go around checking for me, I repeat while checking for your friend, same timing, ok?? otherwise, I wouldnt dare to ask you, malu lah, buang masa orang kan?

I intend to post in my blog too regarding this house hunting, perhaps who knows I will soon get a house or an apartment (ground flr) in KL.

Hugzzz always :) ;) 8-) :* :* :*

Mariuca,  December 19, 2009 10:44 PM

I can receive this comment in my email Mon!! But still a little slow to receive them kan, unless overnight and I wake up, switch on Pinky then all will come in one shot….

Mariuca,  December 19, 2009 10:45 PM

Earlier I couldn’t leave comment at LJL, then okay edi! :)

Mariuca,  December 19, 2009 10:46 PM

Morning Mon! I dropped 900 yest but today less than 100 only so far huhuhuhuhuh!

Mariuca,  December 19, 2009 10:51 PM

Hi Lil, no worries.. I will surely let u know if I hear of any good condos.. in KL eh? But why so susah to find for u, is it cause of the cats? You nak bawak the cats sekali ke mcm mana? Anyway, definitely kalau I tahu ada sape2 nak rent out place/apt I will email you, good thing u left me your email here. :)

Mariuca,  December 19, 2009 10:52 PM

Noted on budget! :)

ayie,  December 22, 2009 4:58 AM

we're still house hunting up to now...waiting for better deals in the market.

ayie,  December 22, 2009 4:59 AM

it's not easy that hubs family is still up to now temporarily sheltering with us, as much as we want to have to live our lives freely we just can't.

waiting for that chance to gt our home so we are off on our own.

Mariuca,  December 22, 2009 5:42 PM

Oh great, take your time in picking the best home Ayie, don rush like I did lol!

Mariuca,  December 22, 2009 5:43 PM

I understand Ayie and I am rooting for u and hubby to start living on your own soon… keep me informed yeah? Hugs! :)
