I was interviewed (together with 2 other Interior Designers) about Interior Design for the Philippine Star Newspaper. The article was published in the Features section last March 14, 2009. =)

My Dream Home
Posted on: 15th of September 2008 | Under: Life & Love

I’m an interior designer and I enjoy fixing homes. I find thrill in turning ordinary rooms into spaces that showcase each inhabitant’s character; each corner must be fit to the likings and lifestyle of the owner. I believe that a functionally designed home is just as vital as eating healthy.

I don’t have my own house yet, but I’m always thinking about my dream home. What I want changes from time to time, because my needs and desires change too.

Here is a list of what I want in my dream home (at the moment, anyway):

  • Fully equipped kitchen where I can cook and bake. I miss baking! I also want it to be a place where I can entertain family and friends.
  • My own studio filled with lots and lots of office/art/design supplies. I want the room to have big windows that open to a nice view.
  • A music studio with good acoustics for JR. =)
  • A study with floor to ceiling bookshelves. Plus, I also dream of owning that many books!
  • A walk-in closet! Big closet spaces for my clothes, plus floor to ceiling shelves for my shoes and bags.
  • A big master bath with a tub (or a jacuzzi, maybe?). It will be the perfect retreat for some relaxation.
  • A home theater. I want the room to be equipped with state of the art entertainment systems, complete with soft and comfy sofas to lounge in.
  • A play room for my future kids.
  • A big garden with water features, plus a small pool where I can relax during a sunny day.

Such a long list, but anyone can dream, right? =P

What about you, what’s your dream home?

Designers Block?

I think I’ve lost my touch in interior design. No, let me rephrase that. I think I’m not used to drafting anymore. I’ve been trying to get myself to sit in front of my table since this morning. I need to finish the design perspectives for my presentation tomorrow. I want to make things well and perfect, since this is my first actual project.

I know perfectly well what to do and how to do it. I have my layouts done and ready to go. That’s not the problem. It’s just that every time I try to start, my mind goes blank. My fingers turn numb. My head starts to spin.

My tummy screeming in pain every few minutes doesn’t help either. I loathe PMS with passion. I really do. Sipping my grandma’s delish brewed coffee should help. It better. I can’t afford to waste any more time walking around the house with my hand on my tummy. Or lying in bed, crouched like a baby, mentally cursing mother nature for making me a girl. Haha!

I need to get myself together and focus on getting the perspectives done. I have less than a day to start and finish everything.

Good luck to me and my first project! 8-}

Batch Outing
Posted on: 29th of April 2004 | Under: Travel Junkie

Out of town trips are something that I enjoy quite a lot. Being able to get away from, not just the school work, but also from the hustle and bustle of city life, is such a treat. Emptying your mind from all the worries and just having fun is something everyone must do once and a while.

Heading off to a beach in Zambales with my batch was great last Saturday. The beach itself wasn’t exactly like that of Boracay’s, but being in the company of some wonderful people made everything fun. Talking, laughing and getting to know our batchmates a little bit more was perfect. Somehow, the whole trip bonded the batch a little tighter.

What better way to describe the entire trip, than through pictures, right? So, here you go…

Oh, and inlight to the recent exhibit, which some of my batchmates and I had in Glorietta, we were featured in several local newspapers. It’s just funny seeing your name and face plastered on the paper! haha! XP

Here are 2 shots of those…

And because I’m feeling extra vain right now, here’s a shot of Steph, me and Jewelle, taken around 2 weeks ago….
