Once inside, we were shown a 3 + 1 condo. The + 1 means there is a maid's room attached to the "wet kitchen." The wet kitchen is separate from the main kitchen. It includes the washer, dryer, stove top with propane and a sink for washing dishes. It can sometimes be found in an outdoor area of the indoor kitchen. In this unit there was a large door separating it from the indoor kitchen, but it was still inside, just without aircon.
So, we really like that unit and we loved the price at 3,000 RM. Especially compared to the 4,500 RM for the large link house. Once again, we really re-evaluated our goals again and realized we got carried away with the possibility of living in something we would never be able to in the states. However, our goals here are to have at least a small space for guests, be able to travel and save money to pay off student loans... with that said, saving $500 USD a month seemed like a wise decision. After looking at the unit, we followed Lee to his friend's furniture shop to price some things out.
We actually drove a pretty good distance to the other side of town to walk through the Islamic Art Museum. Unfortunately, we did not have any ringit and they did not take cards. They told us where we could walk to get to the ATM, but by this time it was pouring rain and along with the lighting we decided to come another day.
We had some time to kill before our 4pm viewing. Keith had been wanting sushi since yesterday when we went to Carreforre. I remembered seeing this place in the Wangsa Walk mall called, Octopus.
Right across from the Octopus (that was empty) there was a subway. Keith said they must be giving away free sandwiches because the line was unbelievable.
We were a couple minutes late meeting James, but we had to wait on the showing agent anyway. When we told him what we had viewed this morning along with the price, the showing agent didn't even show us what we were originally suppose to see. I believe that it was the same size and layout as what we saw, but they thought we were willing to pay 4,500 RM. Why we would pay that for an 3 bedroom condo when we could have gotten a 3 story house is beyond me. Anyway, so they shuffled us up to a 2 story penthouse and guess what the price was.... 4,500 RM. How convenient for them!
Honestly, we hated it and we hated the price even more and were annoyed that we weren't shown what we were originally suppose to see.
