Last weekend was quite busy. The hubby and I were helping our new neighbors to move stuff. On Saturday, the hubby and I, along with my father, drove to our Naic home to pick up some furnishings to be brought to Bacoor. We also did some cleaning at the new house in preparation for the big move. We were quite exhausted but you know, family comes first. I think we only got to unwind when we attended the Christmas party of the hubby’s car club (Cavite Chapter only, this time) held at Musikapihan in Imus. I liked the place, the food, and of course, the company. I met this happy couple (the guy is a new member of the car club) and we chatted a bit about life in general. They were nice and I would love to see them again in the car club’s next events.
Last long weekend went by swiftly. It felt like I just blinked and the weekend was over just like that. A lot of things happened, actually. On Thursday, the hubby and I took a leave from work so we could help in packing the rest of the stuff at my PILs’ place that needed to be packed and moved. But before we could fill a balikbayan box with more stuff, fate had something in store for us. We had to accompany my two siblings to the bank because their home loan has finally been approved and contracts had to be signed. My side of the family is also staying in Bacoor for good. We are buying the house next to ours in Bacoor. As in the next door house. Ang saya-saya lang! Magkapitbahay na kami! We all prayed for this and our collective prayers were granted so thank you very much, Lord! 🙂
Today is gonna be a great day for the fiancee. Hours from now, we will be going to the developer’s office to get the move-in documents for his new house in Cavite. The last time we checked out the place, we did a thorough inspection of the unit in the presence of the property manager. Luckily, there was not much to report except for a few cement and paint stains here and there.
The next step to all of this is the move-in. Did I mention that the house has its own water and electricity already? As early as now, the fiancee has started canvassing for light fixtures to install in the house. Some home improvement projects are in place, too. It’s gonna be costly for sure, but it seems he had prepared for that a long time ago. Good for him. Haha.
I’m a proud owner of a low-cost housing unit in Cavite. It’s actually my gift to my parents who are currently living there. I chose a low-cost house over an expensive one for practical reason. I’d rather go for a low-cost house that I could finish paying for than an expensive one that could end up in the hands of the bank at a slight twist of fate.
Slowly, we are improving the structure and the interiors of the house by introducing repairs here and there. So far, we’re done with tile flooring and back extension and we also bought some furnishings and home appliances to make life easier for our parents. We have more home improvement projects lined up, but we’re doing it one project at a time.
Tomorrow is gonna be a busy day for the fiancee. He’s scheduled to conduct a thorough inspection of his new house in Bacoor, Cavite. To show my support, I’m going with him. His family is coming with us, too.
I’m just so happy about the developments in my fiance’s life. One by one, his dreams are coming true. First was the car and now, the house. I wonder what will be next on the list. Haha. Seriously, he’s one hardworking guy and I think he deserves all the blessings coming his way.
The fiancee’s house is finally finished. Inspection date will be on August 6, the turn-over on August 20. Oh how time flies! The first time we checked out that place, it was just an empty lot. Almost a year after, houses are now occupying that exact same lot. And the subdivision in itself now has a growing community.
After the turn-over comes the necessary home improvements. As early as now, we’re exploring ideas to create a modern yet cozy look for the house. While he prefers tile flooring, I’m looking into the possibility of having pergo flooring. I admire the durability of tiles (our Naic home even has a solid tile flooring!) but I also appreciate the look and feel of laminated wood.
