I’m sitting in a cafe in a decrepit mall in Tambo, Pasay. The cafe itself is nice, airconditioned, 25 pesoses minimum up to 1 hour. It’s probably the best buy I’ve had for my money in the past week that we’ve been here.
Renovation to the house is done, at least we’re done with the contractor. Quits, kaput, good riddance, hope you enjoy the money we paid you because we had no other choice but to get on with the renovation as soon as we could and you were the only person we knew. Next to Ellen Valena you are the person I hate most in Manila. I must admit, naging tanga din ako for missing the stuff you took out when you revised the quote you first gave us, pero pasalamat narin ako dahil malinis na bahay namin. I will not name you here outright, dahil sa totoo lang din naman, maganda ginawa mo sa kitchen counter. Sa kitchen counter lang ha, don’t get your hopes up baka kala mo pati dun sa ibang bagay na ginawa mo sa bahay nagandahan din kami. But if any of my friends start talking about hiring an architect/contractor from Casimiro Homes in Sucat, sisiguraduhin kong hindi ikaw yung iniisip nila.
Will be posting the before and after pics in a day or two, for those interested in how to fix a pigsty to make it humanly livable again. Hirap nitong pacafe-cafe lang, sandamukal na pakiusap pa bago makapag-upload ng pics from a cd.
On a lighter note, this morning nagpunta sa Barangay Vitalez si Eagle Riggs ng Unang Hirit!!! Nabalitaan agad ng mga girls kong sina Bebing at Annalie, kaya hayun, binitbit ang Maia para mapanuod ang segment ni Eagle. Nuod din kami sa bahay, pero hindi naman sila nakunan ng camera. Pero pag uwi nila may bitbit na medium-sized basket si Annalie, punong puno ng sabong panlaba … nanalo pala siya sa raffle pagkatapos ma-air ng segment ni Eagle. Maganda daw si Eagle.
