Home Sweet Home

August 29, 2016

Yup, we moved to the new house two weeks ago. The housewarming was a week ago. My office friends from the current company came, so as my friends in the previous company. Plus the friends from my masters and the Peys friends also came last Saturday. My relatives also visited. My mother cooked on that day. 

I bought it in 2013, but only finished the downpayment early this year. It took me that long, auhm, what with my all my travels and stuff. I thought, I had money for it. But finally, noh? The house is pretty small, and we had to hire people to construct the bed frames, cabinets, closets, shelves and whatnots. So, that took another month to finish. I'm glad Mandaue Foam's always on sale, so most of the items were bought there. The center table and the TV rack were bought in Home Plus. I bought a painting in a bazaar in Glorietta. I had to take it home, I don't have a car for crying out loud. I also bought the floor lamp in the same bazaar. My friend was kind enough to bring it home. My cousin should be the one to do the interior design, but she left for Dubai. I had to ask her all the time if the stuff fits together. Hihi. I've got a set of plates and utensils as early housewarming gifts, my friends gave me baking stuff last week too. Oh, thank God for family and friends. 

It has been a struggle. Believe me. There were a number of times in the past when I regretted this decision, but glad that it did not stop me from achieving this goal. I always pray to God to give me the strength I need. God provides, trust me. There were a number of times I felt like giving up, but His help came at the right time. 
But yup, we moved to our new home. My heart is happy. I've learned my lessons, the next time I (we) buy a house, it's a must to be financially and emotionally ready. :P
