my darling baby bahay

8:07 AM 7/2/2011 … ehem ehem, scroll to the bottom for today’s update, hihi.

prelims muna… “my darling baby insert whatever that is that you value so much you’d call it ‘darling baby’ here” was coined by miming not me.

flashback june 2008… napagusapan ang kabahayan at condo living sa dy unit chat. i asked daddy myx how much his unit cost… mura naman, so nagkainteres ako. my friends and i checked the place out. grabe! mukha siyang tapunan ng mga dating sundalo. hahaha. parang barracks! we found a broker, who showed us the model unit… it was simple, a bit cramped but seemed cozy enough. hindi naman ako maarte, so sabi ko sa sarili ko… pwede na.

august 2008… i paid the downpayment. yun na yun. lolz. hr made me go through a lot of paghihirap with my income tax return and certificate of employment (took a month!). then waiting…

over the next few months, the wait was already becoming an ordeal. first, puro follow-ups ang ginagawa ko. instead of going home after work, i had to go out of the way para lang kausapin yung broker ko na walang sinabi kundi “next week…” hehehe. meh magic na nangyayari… then, wala na kong maisagot sa tanong na “kelan ka lilipat?” hahaha. warla!

january 2009… i was finally able to see the finished unit. it was not what i expected. hindi naman pangit pero, it was not what i requested. at sobrang tagal bago kabitan ng kuryente! yung scheduled orientation ko pa… hindi naman natuloy dahil hindi pala ako naisked. lolz. warla ulit! i actually cried that day, sa harap ng pintuan ng unit ko. parang customer lang ng att… frustated! pero sa wakas, sabi ni uncle pagong (pagong kasi sobrang bagal kumilos)… “pwede ka ng lumipat!”


the before pic… it looked too drab


ayan technicolor na!

ngayon… i’m really happy with my new home. ang sarap pala ng feeling na matulog ka sa sarili mong bahay at matulog ka ng mahaba at kumpleto. dati kasi two hours ang biyahe ko hanggang si-bee-gi, ngayon, 30 minutes nalang!

ang sarap palang mamili ng mga gamit para sa bahay mo. ang dami ko pang kulang na gamit. hehe. hetow…

melaikick > hugasan natin yung baso (sabay kuha ng dishwashing liquid chervams)

madam > ako na melai, asan sponge?

melaikick > wala… (-_-)

miming > wala kang sponge?

noobcakes > tawa tawa tawa. bwaaahahahahah!

sorry naman. umpisa palang ako eh. hihi.

and most of all, ang sarap pala ng feeling na meron kang bisita at maapreciate nila yung handiwork mo at alam mong nag-eenjoy sila. miming made a new vid and i’m really grateful for this… love it!

melai’s first kick party by miming/gaki

napaisip naman ako kung ano ang “kick party” hahaha. ayan, see terminology ha… love the song too! it’s ‘houkiboshi’ by younha. it has a korean counterpart, ‘hyesung’ …that’s why i like it so much. i don’t know if houkiboshi mean the same thing but hyesung stands for the word “comet” in korean. in the song (the korean version, di ako marunong maghapon eh), there’s a particular line there that goes like “i want to be a comet so that i give you light and you will smile… i want to be a comet so that i can fly and be by your side…” (sencya, di rin ako kagaling magkorean)

and my noobcakes are my comets. i’m really lucky to have them. mga tunay na kaibigan! they’re crazy too… lalo na kapag nagbubungguan. sana more memories sa bahay ni kick… kayo nga lang magluluto… hahaha!

hep… more pics!


my keys… meh kitchen din ako!


kama!


kusina!


si bading nagsa-sounds…


cable po?

yun lang.

8:07 AM 7/2/2011 … last june 30th, ang saya ko! bakit? kasi, tapos na kong magbayad ng dalawang taon sa broker ko para sa darling baby bahay ko. yes, oh yes! masaya ako kasi nakayanan ko ng dalawang taon at alam kong kakayanin ko pa sa mga susunod pang taon.

grabe, two years! marami na rin kaming pinagsamahan ng bahay ko, nyahahaha! nung umpisa sobrang nakakalungkot na magsarili pero nasanay na rin ako. marami na rin akong natutunan… err, maghugas ng plato, magwalis, maglampaso, magtiklop ng damit, sumira ng doorknob, etc. dati kasi merong gumagawa ng mga yan para sakin. marami na ding mga ala-ala dito na lagi kong itatago sa puso ko… mga birthday kicks, mga kalokohan ng bwisita, nagtugtugan at nakinig na musika, mga panahong nagtawanan, nag-iyakan, at nag-usap ng masisinan ng mga kaibigan. ahaha, i have so much to be thankful for. salamat sa inyo!

on a side note, i was particularly happy because i have a very wonderful guide who made sure i wouldn’t get lost in makati since i had to get my receipts and paperwork… i did get lost, given na yan, i haz bad direction skillz… but every message i sent him, i received a timely reply. every reply i get from him puts a huge smile on my face for that matter. hihihi.

two years huzzah!

anyhoo, i’d be paying directly to pag-ibig nao at medyo mababawasan na rin yun monthly amortization and i’m so relieved that i won’t see my broker’s face anymore. not that i don’t like him, pero need pa niya ng mas maraming customer service skillz. hahaha. at ngayon, i’d make sure to take care of this responsibility. ang dami pang taon ng pagbabayad ang haharapin ko pero hindi ko pababayaan to. i’d make sure i’d pay everything off in the coming years. oha oha! cheers!

bisita kayo minsan sa bahay, kk?

yun lang ulit.
