I will be flying to Tokyo on the 29th and have one week to prepare. I need to do a lot of things and just hope one week is enough.
First, I need to sell my car. I am moving to an apartment that charges something like 50,000 yen (about 23,000 pesos) for parking space and I am not about to spend that much money on something I know I wouldn’t be using a lot. I’d rather spend the money on a better apartment knowing I’ll be staying there most of my time.
I don’t really have much time so I am planning of visiting T-Up, a Toyota company that buys used cars and see how much I can squeeze from them. If I understood their website correctly, it should take only a few hours to sell my car and get my money.
I also would need to send stuff I don’t need back to the Philippines. I already have my humongous “balik-bayan box” and I just have to fill it and call them to pick it up from my apartment and have it sent to my Philippine home.
I may also have to send the stuff that I actually need to my new apartment in Tokyo. I’m not really sure how much it would cost me so that is the big question mark right now. I may have to give away stuff or better yet, sell them to Hard-Off or other second-hand shops because I may need the money to buy new stuff in Tokyo.
I’ve already canceled my Internet connection, my gas, my water, my apartment and my parking lot. I am selling my NTT line tomorrow and hope I get a good price. Actually, since I am leaving very soon, I don’t care about the price anymore as long as I get money for it, but of course, I’m not gonna tell them that.
I also need to say goodbye to a lot of people, whom I’m really going to miss. I am definitely hoping to still see them, the sooner the better. In fact, a few of them already told me they’ll be paying me a visit in Tokyo so that’s pretty exciting.
I’ll be waiting.
