Project: Bahay Kubo

>> Wednesday, June 3, 2009

Eversince we moved to our own place sometime in December, I haven't really took time to take pics of our place. Probably because Mon and I haven't really focused much on sort of making it nicer. We just ensured that we're confortable enough to do our every stuff. :p

That's why recently, we both decided to make it nicer, cuter in our eyes. :p We actually just have to re-organize and add some more finishing touches to our place.

On a per room basis..

Living Room

Already have the basics such as 4-seater sofa, an ottoman-like chair and center table. We have bought a long center table from Ikea and used it as the tv rack. Previously, the owner just used the shoe cabinet as the tv rack and I don't like it at all. :p We are thinking of putting some throw pillows and curtain or blinds to the window for a more softer look. I am also re-thinking the shoe rack and cabinet placements to accomodate the small mahogany table and chairs by the owner.

Dining Area

This is a very small place beside our living room, hence the term area. The owner did not provide a dining table and chair but has left two ikea computer tables. What we did was just buy some chairs and use one of the computer tables as a dining table since it will just be the two of us to eat most of the time. I think the area just lacks more lighting as the only lighting is near the living area. We are planning to re-negotiate with the owner to provide us with a 'proper' dining table (among other requests). *crossing fingers*


I think this is the most complete part of our place. :p I am so OC-OC with having a complete and nice utensils and kitchen tools. Anik-anik items from Daiso and Ikea, others from Carrefour and from the ever reliable stores near our place. We have initially re-organized and we've been happy about it. Though we haven't really maximized all the cabinets to make the kitchen counter clutter free. And maybe there's a need for more Daiso purchases haha!

Laundry and Sink Area

Both are quite ok now, have included it in our initial re-organization a couple of wks ago. Just a few more neat-packing and it's done.


I found our tiny bathroom nice already. We've put a shower curtain to separate the toilet and bath area. So OC-OC with the cleaning tools so we have inner bowl brush, outer bowl brush, 'escoba for the flooring, a generic brush for the floor na din aaannnnd toothbrush for the suloks hehehe.. This one's ok for us, so no change required na.

Common Bedroom

This is our sort of 'tambakan' of all sorts hehehe.. All spare umbrellas, extra day-to-day bags, luggages, vaccum cleaner and the stuffs I have bought on my numerous shopping sprees (:p) are there. This room needs a major re-org! We haven't utilized the built-in cabinet that much as well as our plastic boxes.

We are planning to put a blinds or curtains in the window. I have to sort out the things we won't be using anymore but will be useful for the people in Pinas. Then, we ave to put the 'pasalubongs and uwiables sa pinas' in a bigger box para sama-sama na. Hmmm.. makes me think if I have to call and get a box na from metrobox (have to consult Mon first). Also, I am hoping Weng will give me one more bag organizer (calling Weng! :p) 'cause one is not enough haha.

Master Bedroom

This is the biggest challenge of all. :p It's fine but we know we can still make it much comfy and nicer. For one, the owner has this cabinet with mirror that we cannot use. We've done the initial cleaning and odour removal stuffs but to no avail. Smells like 'luma' pa din.

I have done some research and some natural odour removal are charcoal, newspaper, white vinegar, ground dry coffee and baking soda. Charcoal has no effect when I tried it. So this wkend, I am planning to use all in full force. I'll just create a new post on the outcome. :)

We are also thinking of re-arranging the furnitures inside the room. We may need to plot a layout first before moving the furnitures to make sure we won't waste too much energy. :p

We'd need to re-arrange the clothes, distribute it amongst the drawers and big cabinet as soon as it is odour-free. We also have to sort and re-organize our documents. Buy some file storage stuffs so that everything will be more accessible and neater.

There are some more bedroom stuffs we'd want to request the owner as well. Just hoping that she'd be kind enough to give us what we'll ask. :p

Hayyy.. hopefully the weekends of June will be enough for us to complete the project. Will post pics on the final outcome hehe..
