You see, the barrio girl is marrying a city boy in five weeks! When we begin our life together as a married couple, I have a few things that I'd like to bargain for.
1. New Condo
If I were back in the province, I would have insisted on a house. But city living is way different. Commuting, especially, in Manila is horrendous. So, I'd make a home out of a small abode.
2. A new queen-size bed
Again, if I had my way I will definitely go for a California king. However, there is no way that this can be turned into a reality. Just not practical, if you only have a pea-sized apartment.

It would be nice to have a place for your mobiles and bedside reading materials.

I have my eyes on them for a long time now. I've kept on telling myself that I need a new place to justify its purchase as well as to give the brand proper respect.
5. A walk-in closet and built-in modular cabinets.
I hope to properly store clothes, towels, linens, lingerie and other knickknacks. Everything stowed nice and easy.
|Ah, the ultimate in organizing wardrobes, etc.|
|Washing shouldn't be a chore anymore.|
|I've been smitten.|
My favorite past time is reading. And I want to cultivate an environment where my family could also discover the joys and wonders of the written word.
Wouldn't it be less stressful if work is confined to a working table? I am an advocate for not bringing work at home. Sometimes, it's unavoidable and inevitable.

10. A pocket garden.
I really dream of living in a home with plants surrounding it. If I can't have the lawn of my dreams, might as well make do with what I have by growing potted plants.
