After visiting the designer of our entourage -to accompany Kei’s sister and mom to fit their dresses. We proudly decided to show them our tiny, messy place. Hahaha! They found the place “maaliwalas” bright and airy. They also saw the lack of furniture.
Sigh. And we went on to recount the heartache.
Kei’s sister will not have any of it. She declared that She will get us a bed. A few minutes later, we found ourselves at the backseat of her car heading to Mandaue Foam, Quezon Ave. I slept the whole time. (I was stressed and tired! So much for making a good impression to Kei’s family)
And so, we arrived! I also have to tell you that I am very sorry for the lack of pictures. I left my camera at home and all I have was my phone that was on a bleeping low batt at the time. So, all the pictures here are from the internet.
Walking in we tried the mattresses in their testing area.
We picked out the orthopedic bed as it was the non negotiable for me. (I have a mild case of dextroscoliosis) Then, we scurried upstairs their showroom to look at bed frames. Most of their furniture are solid wood. That explains the price but I must say all of them are of quality.
They have a lot to choose from! And they all picked what they liked best.
While we like what Kei’s mom picked out, the padded headboard might be a potential asthma attack for me. The one Kei’s sister picked was also nice but only comes in double size. So again it is a no.
The one with the curved headboard is too “classic” for Kei’s taste. –according to Kei he wanted something modern.
-And I found out that the side table I liked was named: KAILEY-it goes for 4,800.00php. *if you ask me it sounds like my best friend’s nickname.
And after a bit of looking around. We found ourselves looking at the same bed.
This bed. Or to be exact this bed frame. (that gave us heartbreak number two)
Its name is CRAZY. Nope, we kid you not.
I find it pretty. Cut textured, solid wood headboard, in a warm shade of maple. Kind of balanced out the edgy design. It also looked cozy. We all liked it. -Its only flaw, It doesn’t have the storage underneath. But It really is pretty. We were sold.
*After all we could just get plastic storage bins to hide under the bed.
To give a better look of it I searched for it on the internet and found it only in a different color.
While it is the same bed frame, I liked the maple colored one better. It shows the wood grain better and adds a cozy feel to the bed.
So, we finally got a bed! Woot! All thanks to Kei’s sister.-NOT REALLY. WE just lost the freaking bed (frame). So much for getting our hopes up.
the UPDATE: Apparently MANDAUE FOAM sold the said bed frame we got on reserve to another customer. They have our mattress correct, but the bed frame is lost. The stocks are all sold out. Even the dark version. It would take long before they will get it back again. By that they broke our hearts. =( so heartbreak number two.-why is this so frustrating?!
*In my mind I was singing Carly Rae Jepsen’s – Call me maybe: hey, I just met you and this is CCCRRAAAYZEE…
We went on looking at some of their other pieces that we thought would look good in our place.
So here is what we (Kei and I) like for the bedroom.
For the dining it would be this cute dining set!
The sofas here in Mandaue Foam failed to capture my attention.
But the extras for their living room really do! Here are my picks.
Sigh. We need more money, or more sponsors! Hahaha!

**I may have written before that we wanted a king sized bed, but due to the tight space we got a queen size. Our king sized beddings will be altered.
-WE ARE NOW OFF TO LOOK FOR A BED FRAME FROM A DIFFERENT SUPPLIER.
