Dream world or hell world
Hi so back to share with you some of my experience in Southall, UK and To introduce you with UK life.
My first experience was of getting rental accommodation… Here I got a chance to introduce myself with sharing house system.. 😀
What I dreamt is a country like we see in movies a kind of dream world where you get everything extraordinary… And reality Is:-
First five days we lived in my uncle’s place. I am glad that my Mom’s grand Auntie’s family is living here so I have my cousin uncles and Aunts here.. 😀 First morning in Southall UK.. woke up and got breakfast of bread and half fry eggs so I left eggs and ate bread and butter then we started search for our dream house.. 🙂 First through internet and then we got to know some vacant places which were served to us by agent. So we went to see them. We came out of the house and got freeze and amazed with blowing of freezing wind, Southall is known as mini India and mini Punjab because it will not let you feel that you are in UK but you feel as you are in India. Bluntly speaking it is not look like a part of England and is badly spoiled. Well here you can see people from all part of world, different rules and regulations which are strictly imposed such as traffic lights (they put light system for crossing the road also :D) and get Everything expensive.
Now for all the people who think it is easy to get your dream house here.. Mind my words it is NOT. We were shown some places by agents and we were shocked.. A very small room with tiny kitchen and bathroom was of £500 and in that even bathroom and kitchen will be shared with a guy. Some places were more expensive and dirty like dustbin and I was feeling like It is hell world not dream world..:( Note that we were looking for independent studio flat, because I was not ready to share with anyone but after 5 days of search, at the end we decided to take accommodation which was cheapest £500 described as a small room in the first. But agent said no because we were without job.. 😦 We are left with option of sharing house ONLY
SHARING which means you will have to share kitchen and bathroom with other people staying in that particular house, normally here in three bedroom house including garage 10 people stay together.. :O
First lesson Forget about your own country style of independent good house in a good price and learn to live paying lot for very less.. J
We got a room for £85 a week which was a cheap price as per Southall accommodation prise. I was happy, It was very small room and 4 families included we were living there. It was very difficult to manage in so many people.. You have to wait to use bathroom and kitchen, follow the rules to tidy up house.. Hmm I found it very difficult because I was not able to cope with other people in the house because we all were from different city and culture so our style of living is also different. But I have tried my best.
Till then I have shifted to 3 different places but I have not get a place worth living a good life and they all are far away from my dream home and dream world. Everywhere you will have to face some problems such as conflicts between people, conflicts related to use of kitchen and bathroom, conflicts related to use of electricity, washing machine etc. And conflicts because of useless rules and regulations by house owner. But somehow I have learn to manage so now I do not feel tough and if you take it in positive view it give you a chance to meet and stay with people from different countries and different culture.. 😀 So be happy in either ways is what mean you learn to live.. 🙂
Will be back to make you more familiar to UK LIFE
