The Sofa Set Project

As promised, here are the newly taken pictures of my the sofa set we had custom made.



Since we have a small spaced living area, we finally decided to give up the search for L-shaped sofas in malls and opted to have it purposely done to fit our cute love nest.
We chose mahogany for the accent woodwork color to match the interiors of the house and thought a sandy color for the upholstery would make the room appear brighter and more spacious. Plus, it adds to that "zen-ish" theme we were aiming for.



We also had the center table and the "TV stand" made (as many would call it, although the flat screen tv would be mounted on the wall). All woodworks were in mahogany.

Apart from that, both the curtains and sunscreen were also from
Adriane Victoria Interiors.
The fabric for the curtains was originally imported from Belgium if I'm not mistaken (or something in Europe otherwise). Ms. Dolly and Mr. Peter (the company owners) we're kind enough to include our small dining window and had it "clothed" in the package too.

Overall, we had the following done:
  • L-shaped sofa
  • Center table
  • TV stand
  • Curtains (living/dining area)*
*Pictures of curtains to follow.

The whole package was worth 30k.

NOTE: Colors may appear darker than the actual shade of the furniture.

Pretty good digits for such pieces done with skillful craftsmanship. Will surely have the other furnitures done as well. Can't wait to fully furnish this cozy little place.

Thank God Its a Holiday

Enough about skin care and salon / spa reviews. Tonight, I'm gonna blog about my things-to-do list. OK, I'm joking.

This day, I told myself I am going to spend at least 5-6 hours reading about The Cell from my Histology class. It's not really an advance reading, more like what-was-the-professor-talking-about kind of reading. I managed to finish half of Chapter 2 and that's because I started in that chapter.

Apart from this day's major assignment, the new sofa set got delivered this afternoon. It was a custom made L-shaped mahogany couch with a sandy upholstery (picture to follow). We had it done along with the center table, TV stand and curtains (I promise, I'm gonna do a separate post on this one).

So it's 10.15PM on my clock, and instead of skimming for tomorrow's Cell and Transport for my Physiology class (God help me), I am here blogging and watching Julie/Julia movie on HBO. It's a movie about cooking, blogging and being your own person. You guys should watch it. If I come to think of it, it might actually be the reason why I even blogged today.

Freshmeat Orientation


When you get into a new place, you tend to adapt/adjust and try to "blend" in with your environment. Moreover going to a new school, with new people, new curriculum (note: hardcore curriculum) and doing it with lesser sleep and more fatty build up.

Yes you read that right. F-A-T. As in thicker, richer and fluffier adipose tissues :)

Going into med school requires and sets you to change and accept a new kind of lifestyle. That is, weekdays would mean studying at least 3-4 hours a day (in your own time) and weekends would be spent preparing for the weekdays. Although, note that Fridays should be allotted for rest / chill / past time / party (if you still have the energy for it).

Statements shown above are just mere opinions I came up with in these early weeks of my freshman year. It may or may not change by the time I reach the 2nd year or thankfully graduate.

Yet it is very important that you chip in some time to exercise, go malling with friends, watch movies or just have something to do that has nothing in relation with medicine or studying. Because good guys need a break.

And in order to survive in this tough med world, you have to learn how to fight hard despite all the gruesome wars. Fight = study. War = exams. Of course studying and actually learning, wouldn't be a bit easier if you don't have efficient resources and facilities.


This was taken at the Nursing Auditorium of UERM @ Physiology Orientation.

They had it built by the same contractor who did MOA's iMax theater. This room caters 400 students of our batch, is fully air conditioned, sound proof, and has chairs with built in arm tables cascading upwards for better visualization of the lecturer's presentation.

hmm... very conducive indeed.

Vain Jane goes to Med School

Lately I've been busy working on my time management skills in preparation for the coming school year. And what's the best way to prepare for it? PRACTICE. And so, I had to get my things ready for school from books to pens, bags to shoes.

Sometime in mid - end of May, we dropped by C&E Bookshop for a quick run down of the school books on my list. I got all 12 medical books that's worth a hyping P27,000. It wouldn't probably be the best way I would have spent 26 grand, but I think it was worth it in the long run.

This is part I

This is part II

Haven't covered 'em up with plastic yet. Doing it a couple a day :)
It makes the whole med school idea sink in in a subtle-friendly-petiks way. I also try not to stare at my bookshelves. Just couldn't imagine reading 2-inch thick books plus 2-3 others in just one sitting.

Hopefully, I could once and for all arrange my "study room/business lounge/pantry area" here and get a feel that it is finally happening. A calling or should I say, a dreaded calling worth taking the risk.

Proverbs 11:14
“Without good direction, people lose their way; the more wise counsel you follow, the better your chances.” (The Message)
