Back to Cyprus

Current temperature 20 Celsius and the weather is clear. I have landed this island 23rd of March 2008 and it's been already a week passed. Until now, finally I can catch some breath to post this on my blog.

Cyprus is not a place mean for travel in spring because the main attraction here is the beach, which will be crowded on summer holiday. However, I try to snap couple of photos to show the other side of Cyprus to show it's still enjoyable to stay at this period of time (at least that will make me feel better). Unfortunately, my company has a policy to block photo sharing web site. So, no photos for now but I will upload them when i got the chance. Chat messenger also blocked so I can be reached by email only from the internet.

On the food side, this trip is much better from my last trip to here because we found some new places for lunch and dinner. A place we frequent went to is the Yellow submarine, which served sandwich in long size bread. Beside that, we also found Burger King serving large burger with economy price (a.k.a cheap) so we don't burn a hole in our wallet. Further more, there is a cafeteria named Katerina's Kitchen nearby our office. Served with Cyprus food and very cost effective too (for take away). Last but not least, not to forget the Kebab shop in town. The average cost per food serving in Cyprus is around 5 Euro. The food outlets I have mentioned is cost below 5 Euro else I would rather cook at my apartment.

Speaking of my apartment, this one is lousier compare to last one I have stayed. The floor is made of marble and it is cold on spring time. Therefore, we all wear slipper at home. My room's light bulb was burned and we replace it by taking other room's light bulb. The washing machine was broken before we are here. Fortunately, the company has replaced it with a new one. There are also a construction going on in our building and dust are everywhere once we open the balcony's door. So, we have to always keep the balcony door shut all the time. Not to mention the TV because there wasn't enough English channel for us to stay entertained. The furniture all are cover with cloth because some of them is broken (I couldn't believe broken furniture in my apartment). A cleaner will come our place once a week to clean up the house and thankfully she clean the furniture cover, which covered with dust when we came.

All things are going well for the moment. Hopefully it stays that way.
