As someone who lived in Mandalay last semester, the Kitchen is hardly "stocked". You get 4 large plates to share with your roommate. The can-opener is garbage; bring your own. Also, the frying pans on the island are all flimsy, chinese made junk. If you cook at all, e.g., you want to fry an egg, and you don't want to smoke up your apartment bring your own high quality frying pan.
Also, TV is not free. It is included as part of your utility bill; I think it is 70EC total (35EC per person). BTW, the electricity charges at Mandalay are completely arbitrary. You'll never get a straight answer from anyone how it is arrived at. I lived very frugally with respect to the AC and dryer (did not use it at all). My last month's bill was for $270 (US)! Rumor has it now that they just straight divide and give everyone the same bill, so there is no incentive to be frugal.
