December House Expenses

  1. 8,000,000 VND – Rent
  2. 184,500 VND – Telephone
  3. 550,000 VND – FPT ADSL
  4. 442,500 VND – Electricity
  5. 92,500 VND – Water
  6. 10,000 VND – Garbage

Total: 9,279,500 Vietnamese Dong

Wow, I paid around $566 for all my house expenses for the month of December. My water and electricity bill were to high. I am never home so the water and electricity guys GUESS how much water and electricity I use.

In about one month, I hope to move to a smaller house with lower rent. I currently live in a 5 story house with 4 bedrooms, a sitting room, kitchen, livingroom, balcony and laundryroom (with jacuzzi and sauna). BUT I only use my bedroom and kitchen so I really do not need to live in this big house. It is too hard to clean up by myself and I really do not want another housekeeper.

Most of the expats I know have smaller expenses. Originally I moved into this house with a roommate. When she left, I had a Viet Kieu stay with me but after he left, I decided not to get a new roommate.
