[ home sweet home ] in this blog, i will post pictures and tell stories of how i rebuilt my humble home after being hit by typhoon ondoy. my house is a work in progress. there are still a lot of things i wanna do with it. if i only could, i would tear it down and build me a new one. but that would need a lot of money and that i don't have... yet. for now, i renovated it the best way i know how with what i can afford. i still would like to do some changes. slowly it will all happen. and step by step, i will document it here. :-)

updated my house with new throw pillow covers and lamps. i also got a new tall table with matching stools for the dirty kitchen. changing throw pillow covers is a fun and easy way of sprucing up your house interior. :-)

ondoy did more than flooded my house, it erased captured memories. i’ve lost a lot of pictures after ondoy. wished i scanned them all before it happened. this is me with my siblings and cousins in front of a church in manila

saw an old pic of my house in 2006. my mom made those throw pillows and couch slip cover. the wall matches the pillows. the passion for home interiors i definitely got from my mom. i remember my mom would always make our curtains, couch slip covers and rearrange the furniture from time to time. she did a lot of DIY stuff. if only i know how to sew like her. we had numerous talks about my house renovations. i even gave her a house tour through facetime. she&#8217;s coming home from new york this december. i&#8217;m excited to personally show her what i did with our place. i hope she approves. :-)

this is my dirty kitchen. renovated it in 2011. i had a lot of extra floor tiles when i renovated in 2009 after ondoy ( and still had a lot after doing this that i had to give it away ). it took me two years to decide to put these tiles halfway up and all around its walls. i also replaced the old window, got a new sink and a new faucet to match. i even added beams to  the ceiling. not bad, right? i think i did well. :-)
