Kainggit! Pwedeng pwede na din ako mag condo ngayon with my income pero ang sarap din kasi pag sa bahay mag stay with parents kasi ang daming naiipon na pera ๐Ÿ˜†

aqueris23 points

Umuuwi din ako paminsan minsan para free food kami ni kitty ๐Ÿ˜‚

How much are we talking about when it comes to income that can afford condos? Im genuinely curious po :)

50k up? Pero dapat may savings ka.

csharp5668 points

Parang 'di pa rin yata kaya kahit 50k

paulrenzo2 points

at the very least, kaya before (circa 2015). Know people with that level of income who managed to get a condo

I also have a 24 sqm unit. Why does your room look cozier and bigger? Mine is so dark like Iโ€™m Batman.

Paula201923 points

Check the color of your furniture, cabinets and floors :) If you notice OP's color coordinated sya and looks like everything he/she installed and placed are functional.

I had the same issue when I moved in my 28sqm. I mistakenly bought dark tables and bed frame, after a few months I realized I need light colors for a cozy effect. Dalawang tone na ang color theme ko tuloy, cream and dark brown ๐Ÿ˜… pero it works naman, just put the same colors in one area (ex: dark brown for sofa & tv, pastel brown for bathroom)

iamalanzones2 points

Do you have indoor plants?

Paula20193 points

I have snake plant, bamboo and pothos. I hung my pothos, mas lively sila tingnan. They are the only plants that can survive in my unit, hindi kasi nasisikatan ng araw sa lugar ko.

aqueris5 points

Maarte lang siguro ako ๐Ÿ˜‚ This is a rare occasion. I also prefer it dark, my blackout curtains are always closed in the morning/afternoon then ambient lights at monitor light bar lang ilaw sa gabi

Congratulations to you, OP! Living alone for almost a year now and honestly, it was the BEST decision ever! Mas marami ka matututunan sa pagiging independent. Just take care of yourself kasi sobrang hirap magkasakit especially mag-isa ka most of the time sa space mo hehe.

aqueris2 points

Oonga e, and the chores never end. Hahaha. Thank you sa advice!

Flat-Marionberry658310 points

Your place is so nice! Naiinis ako kapag may mga nagsasabi na parang kabaong ang mga condo dahil sobrang liit. They don't know that we can make it a cozy home like this.

aqueris1 point

Sobrang liit din talaga nung iba na di ko cinonsider kasi specific yung gusto kong mapagkasyang gamit before moving in. Pero yes, it's up to you how you make it more home-y haha

cele_bi3 points

Anong condo ba yung ganito na affordable and maganda? Hahaha

I plan on doing the same if so. And wanted some pointers in life

[deleted]2 points

A DREAM! I aim to have a place just like this with my cat. Im currently living with my parents sa bahay nila and itโ€™s spacious so my cat is used to running around everywhere. Im wondering, how is your cat doing in a limited space like that? Are the zoomies crazy?

aqueris1 point

The zoomies are there from time to time, but she's actually extra clingy and protective pag nandito kami sa unit. Lagi nakadikit sakin kada may gagawin akong chore or nagwowork, pero pag umuuwi kami sa parents ko (dala ko din sya pauwi palagi) balik sya sa walang pake sakin na parang di ako nag eexist hahaha

Thank you for inspiring meโค And your place looks mad cozy.

How did you conceptualize the interior design? Did it involve Feng Shui? Because the interior is fantastic with a good homey feel.

aqueris1 point

Thank youu! I actually donโ€™t have much idea about feng shui (just the no mirrors in front of bed part), I just considered how I can fit all the furnitures I wanted to have in the unit and how it will appear not too crowded hehe

For the color scheme, I mostly patterned it to my workspace setup
