So we moved into a bigger house and everything going fine so far, but remember this is the Philippines. So wife was at the old place packing things up and watching load it on the truck which was due to arrive Monday morning yet arrived 0330 Sunday, no problem there. Then comes the unloading place in room, unpack and put away. So those of you who have been here a while are saying to yourselves “No way the move went that smooth.” let’s address that.
At the old place we had some furniture that had to be disassembled and wife hired a pinoy to do it so I went to the new place and waited leaving my tool bin at the old place. One of the items to be disassemble is a 4 door clothes closet. You know the kind, part for hanging clothes, shelves and drawers. I find my tool bin in the mess and head up to reassemble said clothes closet, search the bin and find my philip screw driver and notice it had been stripped. How did that happen since there are no more than about 24 – 30 screws holding this thing together? First when taking one of these apart first step is to remove the doors then start from top right? I soon found out that was not the way Dong saw it. Out of 4 doors on this thing he ripped 2 of them, just pulled the hinges and screws out of the wood, wife says it fell while he was taking it apart. Who knows, I mean we know how they defend each other. So I get it back together minus the 2 doors and go to unpack other items.
We have a 52″ Samsung LCD tv, a 32″ Samsung LCD tv, pc monitor (lcd) and a cctv system with an LCD monitor. Before I left I told them nothing could be pressed against those screens as it would ruin them Even showed them how to pick them up. So I unpack at the new place and find the pc monitor in a box, unwrapped and unprotected laying face down. I pick it up and right there in lower left corner a spider web style crack that goes into the screen and out about 1/3 of the way across the screen. So there is two things they fucked up Now the cctv monitor is bigger than the pc monitor and I have not found it yet but getting a bad feeling already and kind of dread finding it. The 52″ made it with out a scratch so I know there is a possibility that they can do something right and the cctv monitor survived it’s encounter with the Dongs.
The new place has an area in the yard like a yard but it’s no ones yard. From back of the new place the yard is about 30 t0 50 foot then a cement wall and a gate that is always open. Not a bad set up but the other houses decided this area is there private landfill. There are plastic bottles, snacks wrappers, used diapers and so forth. The owner said they will find out who is doing it and get it cleaned up. Now for the record the new place is in a subdivision and the people are of a higher class yet still slobs and dirt bags. Trash pick up is every Saturday yet they still have to throw it everywhere. The subdivision is well maintained and kept clean but I guess some people are not happy unless they can fuck something up. I have a suggestion for them. If they like trash laying around that much, throw it in your own fucking yard assholes. The internet went from bad to worse here.
Now you might be asking yourself if there are any good points. Yes there is.
1.) I don’t have a catholic church blaring music at 0300.
2.) I can hear the crickets at night. No, really I can!.
3.) Subdivison is very clean on pinoy standards. Except for the assholes mentioned above.
4.) Very little traffic on our street.
5.) Armed guards at front gate 24/7.
6.) Armed roving guards 24/7.
7.) Owner takes very good care of the house and does repairs correct. He’s Ozzy so that explains a lot right there.
8.) Always a nice cool breeze.
9.) Street lights that are actually turned on at night!!!
So there you have my moving experience. Now if your free on 25Feb2015 come over for the funeral service and burial of the pc monitor. If the cctv monitor is kaput then it will be a double funeral and burial. Thing about that. Wife paid Dong about 500 pesos to take the bed and closet apart yet the fucker done over 5,000 pesos in damage!Published in
