toyota vios cup 2 cebu day 1 - qualifying

I took a break from all the home renovations and spent last weekend in Cebu.

Crazy as it may sound to leave your workers midway into their job but I just couldn't resist the invitation to visit Cebu. It was going to be my first time and I was also flying to cover the 2nd Vios Cup. Those who know me well know that I can never resist a good race.

I left Manila early Saturday morning and arrived in Cebu around 9am.

RENOVATION DIARIES: DAY 1 & WHAT TO EXPECT

I have always been interested in interior design. Back when I was still living with my mom, we would re-paint our bedrooms with different colors almost every year. That was more than 10 years ago. During that period, paint colors were very limited and we would have to mix our own tints with a latex base to achieve the specific colors we wanted.

So I'm no newbie, but this was my first time to tackle a renovation that covered an entire home.

I felt confident but turns out I was not prepared.

So what to expect during a home renovation? The worst.

Also, don't drink the night before your first day. :P

nikola the triple threat + giveaway

Is your child a triple threat? ☺

I don't mean the kulit side....destroyer, endless questions about things you aren't ready to discuss yet, climbing everything 'til you're on the verge of a heart attack...I'm sure you can all relate to those.

Sometimes annoying and yet still endearing when you look back.

But that's not what I'm talking about.

I'm encouraging you to focus on the positive this time...
(although maybe not as funny and exciting. haha)

blue and white summer trend

I'm sorry if I haven't been updating my blog lately as often as I should. We just started renovating our house and life has been crazy. I can't even find my shoes...

I am not a seasoned "renovator"?! Haha :P This is the first time we've ever undergone a project as big as this and we both didn't know what to expect.

It all started with a simple plan to repaint our home one room at a time...
