Moving on

Due to our transient lifestyle, it became difficult to keep track of some of our belongings. Naturally, the actual packing of the big items like furniture, electronics, kitchen utensils would fall on the professional packers. Usually a week before the actual packing, the Moving Company would supply us with several boxes. So we would sort through our things and arrange them, accordingly. Items to be discarded were assembled in one box. Fragile things in another box. Clothes were neatly folded and packed nicely in yet another box. While the things we were going to bring in our luggages were also separated from the rest of the items. It was really a tiring and messy process but we didn't really have a choice. It was our lifestyle.

Once we reached our new 'home', the whole process was repeated. But this time, we had to sort out the boxes and unpack. Up to this day, I still have things stored in boxes. For instance, winter clothes which I'm sure won't fit me anymore are still neatly folded in an old box at my parents' house. I've also lost track of what some of the boxes contain. Although sometimes when we talk about our travels, I would wonder whether the souvenir I bought is still around in some box somewhere or was it misplaced and didn't survive the transatlantic journey.
