  • what about a moving out sale cum gathering?

    i will be moving out of my house in the first week of april and into what is most likely a hotel room (i still haven't found a place yet). i've amassed alot of junk over the last couple of years which will definitely not fit into your atypical hotel wardrobe and i highly doubt my clothes and shoes will even fit in there...

    so i was thinking, in light of all the calls for a next gathering, why not have a moving out sale/gathering?

    i haven't quite organised the junk i'm intending to flock but i reckon this will be pretty much a ladies' thing, such as:
    • dresses, tops that i grew out off, some not even ever being worn or some only having been worn once;
    • a mini collection of chick literature;
    • hair dryer;
    • paul drank dustbins;
    • floor mats, pails etc;
    • queen sized bedsheets (which have been laundered, duh);
    • all sorts of odds and ends; and of course,
    • the spin bike.


    firstly will anyone be in the above?

    and while at it, we can have a little get together to put face to a nickname. to be honest, there's not much entertainment at my place but if you fancy a cool dip you can bring your bathers... there will be some finger food and alcohol and the rest is pretty much BYO. i'm looking to have this sometime this weekend, perhaps a sunday arvo.

    what do you guys reckon?

    *by the way, it is not about selling my stuff... it's more of a reason for me to finally suggest/initiate something.

        Kemang's OK in that its within artillery range of our place, but the stuff you have on offer sounds more YMCA than upscale expat, except maybe the exercise machine.

          hahaha yes, i never bought many things because i always lived in somewhat of a furnished apartment/house.

          to be honest, i didn't really consider selling those stuffs anyway - it just happens i really need to suddenly downsize my belongings here. maybe i should prioritise the gathering more than the sale. it was just a random thought. i can probably downsize my stuff by shipping things out of indo if necessary.

            Sorry, It is nice you want to have a get together but to center it around obtaining your stuff seems a bit self centered.
            JMHO

              Or maybe a swap-meet where everyone has to bring at least -- one, two, more? -- items for sale with the understanding that if they do not sell they would be donated to a local charity. No charity in mind at this point but you get the idea. An opportunity to off load clutter and maybe pick up some replacement clutter, as well as socialize.

              Unfortunate there seems to be little interest in that only you and I are posting the thread.

                hahaha yours is brilliant idea and yes, little interest. but it's all good. it is just an idea. i don't really feel the need to socialise but people have been going on about gatherings and stuff for ages but everyone has been NATO - i thought i'd take the initiative but since there is a lack of interest, meh! (: you are still welcome over for a beer though.

                  You and you and I three. LOL. Need to put myself out there and face people I've been avoiding to meet. Just wished it's not this Sunday since I already have appointment with my PhD sponsor
                  Always try to be modest. And be damn proud of it!

                        i might have phrased it in the incorrect priority. selling the stuff isn't a massive deal for me and i'm prepared to box and ship as an alternative (though non-favourable) scenario. even though it may come across as being self-centred, it's just my way of killing two birds with one stone of getting people together if anyone is even interested in viewing my stuff. whether any sale is made is not of priority to me. lol. realistically, i am not expected much, if any at all! like i said, everyone has been NATO so thought i'd throw it out as a suggestion.

                            1st week in April we are in Ubud. Bummer (Not that Bali's a bummer; bummer that we cannot be in two places at once.)
