Pool vs Kitchen: the verdict

The landlord (finally) agreed to our terms, and today we signed the agreement for an apartment on the 25th floor of Hampshire Residences. Otherwise known as the place with the pool.

I’d love to say all the voters dictated the outcome, but unfortunately it wasn’t the case. Simply put, the owner of the ‘kitchen place’ would not come down to a price we were happy with, and in the end took the apartment off the market. Dunno why. Not too fussed.

To celebrate the signing, Kelly and I went out to Tai Zi Heen, the fancy-shmancy Chinese restaurant they have in the hotel. Which, with the guest discount, cost us a whopping $30 Aussie. For both of us. (To be fair, we didn’t order alcohol, but still, a pretty damn good price for two, very full people).

As a gift to you, we’ve collected the pics of the new apartment we shot when apartment-hunting and put them into a convenient Flickr set. Check it out.

…and yes, a pic of the bedroom you’ll stay in when you visit is there.
