Even while in highschool when going to the mall with friends, my closest buddies Maricel and Iris would say, "I know where Hapi is heading. Sa mga pinggan, kurtina, etc etc!" Haha. I just love beautiful home with beautiful housewares and let me include furnitures, okay? :) Home furnishings. :)
When the time comes when the Lord grants our wish of our own home in Singapore, I will surely love the day when we shop for furniture and household stuff. Just last week actually I thought that I might need to ship a rattan living room sofa if I can't find the classic one in Singapore for our own house. Wishing! I want the classic style, I saw the most comfortable and beautiful white rattan sofa in Bacolod at the famous Cuadra mansion. :) Something like the below but bigger and white. And will add up voile curtains behind. Hehe. It feels and looks cozy. Simple but elegant.
So for housewares I usually buy from Ikea. It's one stop shop, cheaper and practical here, http://www.ikea.com.sg/en/catalogue/index.asp browse your like! hehe
Everytime you visit Ikea you think whatever is displayed is needed at home. You will end up buying more than what you planned. Our kitchen wares are bought from different stores as the kitchen appliances. We almost have everything a little home needs, so shopping for these stuff is not all the time as much as I want. :)
