Goodbye Telford Court

My girl in UK has stayed in Telford Court since September last year. That means it has been almost 10 months since she left for her studies in University of Hertfordshire. We have been paying 500 pounds for practically 10 months for the rental. It's about RM2,500 every month. On top of that, we sent 500 pounds every two months for her expenses. My girl is a thrifty one and she survived on that. I was always worried if that amount was enough.

So yesterday, she has moved to a new place which is so much cheaper as she shares her room with another student. She told me that she has got herself a part-time job which can occupy some of her free time. Soon it will be her graduation. I will be there for her graduation which is in November. 

At the meantime, goodbye Telford Court!

    wrong about it, actually it would be better
    for her just to have someone around

  17. Good that your daughter is thrifty. £500 for two months should be enough. I remember using £30 per week for food for two persons when I was living there but of course have to cook at home and not eat out. My rent was only £575 per month but that was for a whole 2-bedroom house. Guess the rental went up a lot now.

    I guess you must be looking forward to November to see your daughter again. All the best to your daughter!

  19. Your gal is very matured and independent. Good to hear she got a part time job over there. Guess this is normal, most of the students there did the same thing too, for sure.

  22. Hey your gal share a room with another student, this is a good idea too. At least she's not that lonely or get bored over there.

  23. The fees in UK is so scary to me. I heard that colleges and university fees in London are even higher than the skies!!!

  24. Don't feel bad, somehow the overseas grads have better exposure and more independent. Her qualifications will be hers forever and give her a good future - Education Is Better Than Gold!

  25. My mum pointed out to me that during my US studies, the exchange rate was only RM2.50 : USD1.
    I reminded her that she was even screaming that it was so high in those days! I saved her money by not going to study in Japan.

    1. studying in the UK is definitely much more expensive but it is a prestige to be able to study there. Hope that we will be able to send our girls to study in the UK in the future.
