Ode to Boom Boom

Having never really seen the point in living in over 1000 square feet, T and I have now finally taken the plunge and decided to move to a bigger place. We've always prided ourselves in not owning anything, and in being able to pack our entire lives up into one small truck should the need arise. But now that we're hitting 30 odd, we've agreed that being able to reach the cupboard from your bed perhaps isn't all that cool anymore.

So we're moving. To a loft. At the top end of town. With enough space to host a ping pong tournament. So we're pleased, and a little daunted at the prospect of not being under each other's toes all the time. Not knowing what page of each other's books we're on...

So, as a last goodbye, and before I turn this blog into a home decor blog for the next month, I thought I'd share some photos of our beloved, and tiny, Boom Boom Apt, which we are sad to part with, but not sad enough to stay!

Boom Boom's very own slate terrace where you could enjoy the sun and the neighbours could also enjoy it through you vicariously.


600 square feet (50 square metres) of splendour

Hanging kitchen in the background. Goat on chair.

Note corner of bed has shin guards on.

"Spare room" with "spare sheep"

So, as we move into a place that's three times the size of this, I look forward to boring you with details on furniture, interior design and DIY.


  1. What happened to the sheep in the last picture? Did he always hang his head? He looks very sad. Are sheep like cats? Does he prefer to be in the same apartment rather than being with the same people? So many questions...

  2. Hey G ! We're moving too and found a much bigger place, so I can't wait to read your posts about interior design !

  3. Hi, my name is McKenzie and I am moving to Hong Kong in a few months. Your old apartment looks very pretty and I was wondering what neighborhood that was in? Thanks!
