The new flat itself, and the little details...

The new flat is small but nice, really nice, almost too nice for its lowly monthly rent. It is visible from the drive to HKUST, one of those houses in the first row in the photo below.


The flat itself is in the back of the house so I don't get a view to Flower and Food BBQ directly out of the window. But that's simply too much to ask for with the cheap price I'm paying.

They say the devil is in the details, but for such a house I'm quite happy to deal with the details. There are a lot of such "details"...

First, the TV reception is poor.


TVB Jade is the best channel I can get here, and still the picture is not so clear. I've tried to improve the reception by buying a signal amplifier ($500) but that didn't seem to help. The TV antenna socket does not work, I only had a bare antenna cable from the window to work with, and I had to install the plug myself.


The amplifier didn't seem to work, unfortunately. It is now suspected that the antenna cable itself is broken and so I had to buy a new antenna cable from Sham Shui Po today ($900!). I've never imagined 20m of coaxial cable costs that much...

I've also noticed that Wing Shing (one of those electronics shops in SSP Ap Liu Street) lied about the signal amplifier in their receipt - the signal amplifier only has a gain of 21dB, but the receipt says it's 29dB.
