for those here on a short stay perhaps in a one-room (which they call here studio) a cheap quite-sturdy desk which you can assemble yourself – thus no need for a car or mover – W40,000 at HomePlus Super-Mart . outside cashier there is a packing desk, where you can find rope to tie-around and carry about weight 11kg. will go into a taxi rear-seat .
box size 106 x 52 x 11.5cm assembles onto 98 x 46 x 89cm desk
steel frame with top particle board (wood particles pressure-bonded, so not that strong) Made-in-China
contains all nuts, bolts and hexagon driver with an understandable visual drawing manual, on how to assemble – takes about 20 minutes . you should have a horizontal-level meter that carpenters use (but a portable one would suffice, also available at Super-Marts including HomePlus) to make sure the rather-weak structure goes into place and stands straight-up horizontally . just wide-enough for a laptop / notebook but rather weak for a printer, so put in down on the ground below the desk instead .
Winner in the sense that furnitures simply cannot be ordered On-Line, as is the shopping Post-Millennium – also in the case of clothes – as you have to see-and-touch for yourself how it looks as well as sturdiness of all its frames . and HomePlus can be found almost on any larger neighborhoods around the Penninsula, plus these huge marts and more-so department stores run by Conglomerates are mucho more lenient when in comes to Exchange and Refunds . even-so, a citizens of a nation brought-up from the ashes of civil War, has yet to believe ONE-Month’s Refund policy no-questions-asked so common States-side .
