Apartment Putra Damai

Thank God I finally manage to find a place to stay while working in Putrajaya. Many thanks to my colleague, Mr. Rozaan to help me secure the apartment. For the past 2 weeks since my arrival, I been living like a nomad and it ain't fun at all.

Well, I'm currently staying in Apartment Putra Damai at Precint 11, Putrajaya. Its location is quite isolated but it is just fine with me.

This is the nearby bus stop which I took to go to work everyday. This area is served by Nadiputra bus No. 400 which will take the passengers to Putrajaya Sentral, Federal Government Complex Buildings and Alamanda.

There are a few basic amenities available here like convenience shop, laundry, cyber cafe and even a barber shop.

There is also small halal restaurant which sell mamak style and also western food. The price of the food is fairly reasonable and I find it to be cheaper than KL.

There is also an open area basketball and badminton court. Since now I'm unable to play badminton regularly, this court could be the place for me to improve my footwork by playing with the "shadow".

Most of the car park spaces here are mostly occupied although there are still some vacancies available some distance away.

Block F & G are government quarters. However, the rooms here are the same as any other blocks in the area.

Mail boxes at the ground floor. This is one concept I am not used to. Back home, our letters are sent straight to our front door.

This is the main entrance to my unit. It is secured with a steel grill gate.

This is the living room and one might notice I put a mattress there. In fact, this is where I sleep. The rooms here are just too small for me and the living room is the area with best ventilation and the only place with a ceiling fan.

There are all 3 rooms altogether and they are just too small for my liking. I have no plan to rent them out as I prefer to stay alone. However, I am happy to let those who are interested to stay for a short period of time (probably some bloggers who want to explore Putrajaya) and my new colleagues (if any) to stay here until they settle down in this new place.

The toilet and bathroom are too small and I have some difficulties to wash my clothes here.

The kitchen is equally small and I doubt I will be in the mood to cook something here. By the way, Putrajaya areas are served with piped gas (pay attention to the yellow pipe) now.

This small compartment is actually the designated area to dry the clothes. It is not ideal as it is hard to get a decent sunshine from this angle.

I say you are lucky to find that place. Closeby to your office and rental ain't so bad. Better than you doing daily commute to your hotel in the heart of the city. Peace dude!
