Before we got married, Ian and I decided to live on our own. This is our mutual decision, we want to experience living together with just the two of us and at the same time, there are no space for us in my parents’ house. Maliit lang bahay namin and I don’t have my own room. His family naman is living in the US na so they don’t have their own house too, they just live with their relatives in Manila and like us, the space is very limited. As we started our journey as husband & wife, one of our dreams is to have our own house, hindi mo kailangan ng malaking bahay as long as own the house, that is much important. We don’t have enough money to buy house and lot during our first year as husband and wife; we rent a house in Makati where we started our little family. For years, we pay Php 10k monthly for the house excluding the utility bills and other expenses per month, so imagine gano kalaki ang gastos namin. Until we realized na pinapayaman lang daw namin yung lessor namin and at the end of the day, hindi naman mapapasaamin yung bahay.
Late last year when we avail 2BR unit in a mid-rise building somewhere in Sucat, We bought it in pre-selling kaya mas mura pa sya, although the turn over date will be on April 2018 pa, ngayon palang we were so excited on how our happy home looks like. What I love living in the mid-rise residences is that they have outdoor and indoor amenities which our family will enjoy every day like the pool, gym, game and lounge area, function hall, entertainment room, basketball court, picnic area, children’s playground, pool deck and club house.
Now can you imagine how excited we are in decorating our future home? During my break, I started searching for the designs/peg that I want, halos maubos yung lunch break ko kakatingin ng mga pictures, now look at these photos, nice db.
Now take a look at the kids' bedroom, we prefer to have double deck since we have two beautiful girls and masikip if tig isa pa silang single bed right. We will use the other space for the study table and other stuffs. I also wanted to have a colorful room for them, maybe pastel rainbow color para naman malamig sa mata. Well, good luck to us sana when the time comes matupad namin yung mga plans namin sa bahay.
This is one of the reasons why my husband and I are working so hard for our family. Time really flies so fast, bukas makalawa sa Sucat na kami nakatira.
