Right beside my table is Mr. Pan’s. Judging from all those books filled with scientific knowledge you would expect him to be someone smart. I assure you, your judgement isn't wrong. You would also notice that he has a table lamp, the fancy one you can get from IKEA, clamped to the side of his table. Uh huh, again, Mr. Pan is one hell of a trickster. Try looking under the lamp fixture. Voila, there is no bulb. Yes the lamp has been there for the past eight to nine months, but no one said that it had been used. Hmmm. Did your perception of Mr. Pan change? Anyways, let’s keep going, so many things to cover before we lock up the place again.
Now walking towards the TV area, you would see a huge white cosy couch in the middle. That settee was from Rudy’s aunt’s place. They were moving into a new house. Either Rudy convinced them to give us the couch or the aunt wanted us to have it voluntarily, that I am not so sure of. One thing that I am sure of is that I have become accustomed to the huge-firm-but-not-too-firm couch for It has doubled as my bed for the past week. Well, here’s the dirt. Aiman who is a friend of ours decided to stay over a couple of days, or weeks, for we could all study together for the exams. Being the fast one, I called dips on the couch and Aiman had to take my cranky bed which you will see soon. Ahh, take a seat. You know you want to.
The two not-so-comfortable looking brown sofas are what they initially provided us with; the wooden structures with miserable looking support cushions. Thank lord, Rudy’s aunt was moving. Exaggeration? You bet. It’s not really that bad. The not-so-cream curtains that veils the scorching sunlight from piercing into the living room, was provided to us too. Ahhhh. How nice of them to do all of this for us?

Our unit is in Sri Hartamas. Yes, the posh land where the current king is having his palace built. It is a small unit. Basically, white walls stare us down when we walk into the unit. Let me bring you in for a brisk walk into our unit. Be careful the warmth might take you by surprise.
Stepping into our unit, you would realise that the door is broken. Yes, not completely broken but its knob is unable to be used. Thanks to my roommate Mr. Pan. One day weeks before I am typing this, Mr Pan was home alone. He decided to go out for some reasons but forgot to bring his keys out with him. What happened next would affect us all for weeks to come. When he got back, he stared at the knob and asked himself, HOW COULD HE GET IN? Yes, the ONLY SENSIBLE answer he got was to break the knob. Kudos to you Mr. Pan.
Anyways, come on right in. Uh huh, the shoes are arranged beside the small shoe rack and the slippers are there as well. No, don’t focus on those stinky socks hidden in the last compartment of the shoe rack. Let’s keep moving. Ahhh, the dining table which doubles as our study table most of the time. The books on the table are proof of that. Don’t be fooled, it only looks clean for Ken’s parents decided to land us a visit last week. If you were here the week before, you would be lucky even to lay your eyes upon the wooden surface of the table.
Ah hah. Ken? Yes, Ken is my house mate who is Rudy’s roommate. Rudy? Hmmm mmm. Yes. Rudy is my housemate as well. Okay. Let me clear this up. Four of us live in the unit. Two in each room. Rudy and Ken in one and Mr. Pan and I in another. Ken’s parents visited us last week for it was college holidays and we were all heading back. When we heard that they were coming to the unit. A tornado broke free. It cleaned up everything starting with the living room right up to the dishes that were soaking in the sink for the past week. All it took was 30 minutes and everything was neat and tidy.
Moving away from the dining table, you would see two study tables. Mine and Mr. Pan’s. Yes, it looks orderly thanks to the tornado.
Ahhh look at the time. The unit has to be closed now. I would have to continue the tour later. So many details to state and so many experiences to share. I promise you it would be opened soon.
