Holing up

We had some minor home fix its and additions that had us holed up at home for the whole weekend. Good news is our bedroom ceiling is all patched up. –We had to damage the ceiling for our air conditioning unit to fit (there wasn’t enough space). While it does not look pretty, due to the fact that we did not restore the “original state” since we had to make sure that we can get the unit out in case we need to. That was day one. For that I am quite thankful.

By the evening, we hurriedly went back to Landmark-Makati in hopes of getting those (darned) white Christmas balls that we were supposed to get last week. Again, there were none. Arrggggh. So, we thought maybe it wasn’t really meant to be. We just have to get the white using other Christmas decor.

In the end we managed to complete our Christmas décor hunt. In our chosen colors- red, aqua and white.

red white and blue?

red white and aqua blue decor- say hello to our feathered Christmas birds!

Hopefully by Nov 30 our tree will be up.

Day two, we are back to sawing, painting, sanding, cleaning up sawdust, and plaster. We smoothed out plaster, wiped out wood glue, installed a hook for the Christmas chandelier, permanently placed the clock by using screws this time and not with command strips. #adulting

By night, we got this neat ladder/trellis type shelf up. –This is going to be decorative/storage space and emergency sampayan (indoor clothesline) in case of rainy days! We also had hooks attached to it so we can hang a swag for Christmas.

I am loving our newly made multitasking ladder shelf!

Not bad right. I am quite pleased with how it turned out! Also just in time for our upcoming “Friendsgiving”! -We called our close friends for a little get together before everyone gets too busy with the holidays. 

Then we went out to Akira to celebrate. Having a Izakaya night on a Sunday. We deserved it for the hard workday/s. hahahaha!

feast for the tummy and eyes too!

I am very much excited to decorate and get the tree up for the festivities!

pop friday

I was chatting up with a friend of mine (Kristoff) when I noticed a bb8 figure sitting on his desk. I immediately asked about it and found out that he is also into funko pops! So we chatted some more and shared our pop wishlist /pops we think are awesome/what we like to have..etc. the chat lasted more than an hour. And pops have been cropping up on our conversation each time we got a chance to talk.

We talk about our own pops and where we got them. Recommended stores and stores that are overpriced, other friends that also collects pops…stuff like that.

This collection is NOT mine, I just found the photo on the internet

Today, he declared that it was a Pop Friday. I liked the sound of that. Apparently he is hunting for funko pops (online) today. Some of what he likes are unknown to me. He knows what I wanted to collect GOT and Marvel. –he doesn’t watch GOT. So mostly we agree on marvel and some awesome looking stuff from Star Wars, some exclusive expensive piece or DC.

These are the pops Kristoff is looking for

Also online Kei and I are hunting for a toy box subscription. And promptly managed to secure one. The wait begins.

we are on a pre-order list for Spiderman. Kei

we are on a pre-order list for Spiderman. Kei loves Spidey.

As for me, I am just happy if I can find some of the older Game of Thrones funko pops. I regret not getting into the toys earlier. Most of what I wanted is not available in stores or if I do find one it is very much overpriced. Any ideas? leads or help would be very much appreciated.

How I wish pops are cheap or free or readily available. Kei and I am even lemming for a nice shelf to “house” my (very) few pops and some of our books. Crazy, I know.

We don't have Ikea in the Philippines, but this bookcase is sure pretty! My dream bookcase-photo from the internet

A happy geeky home must have happy looking toys on display. Am I right?! Maybe someday I get a shelf full of toys.

Fingers crossed I get to find pops that I am looking for to fill my imaginary shelf. Off to a geeky weekend toy hunt. 

Enjoy the weekend everyone!
