Still looking

We are still in the mist of our house hunting. It is not easy since we are not at the location so we can't go for inspection. We'll have to rely on friends to help us to do the viewing and inspection on our behalf.

Though we are still a few months away from our move, we really need to speed up the hunting process as we can't dictate when we'll find our best house to suit our needs. House inspections in Australia is very different from here so that adds to the complexity.

Once we can locate the house, we still need to get those address signs as well as other MISC stuff fixed up... Looks like we have a lot of stuff to do!

Things to bring along

Now that we are more firm on our decision to move we have also listed down all the things that we wished to bring along. We are not going to bring most of the things as the cost of shipping is rather expensive so we rather buy there since shipping some of the stuff may get jammed up at the custom later.

We are going to ship small stuff like cloths, books, some kitchen utensils, toys and some misc stuff which are not a lot and not too space consuming. Hubby will carry some laptops over with DVD player and maybe a Merriam Webster speaking dictionary. Not sure how much these will come up too but I know it will not be cheap.

Since we are not taking those budget airlines, we could also carry some more stuff along with us which will help to cut down on the shipping cost as well.
