before the typhoon

since we have a level 8 typhoon situation right now as we type, tomorrow will be a much-welcomed day-off. three hours prior, i finally dragged my bum to Ikea and Francfranc, both 5 minutes away from my office (i know i'm lazy).

i've been eating out or eating no-cook foods since i've moved in. it wasn't until last week, after about two weeks of a lot of pub grub and alcoholic beverages, that my body is starting to complain.

my apartment came with some pre-installed Grundtal rails from Ikea, and when i saw this in the store, i picked it up:

when I got it home, i found in horror:


must be attached to this:

i love my books

I can properly showcase them now :) I am still unpacking a lot of them.

after receiving my vanity mirror the first thought that crossed my head was "wow, now i can do makeup on my vanity! first time in .... 4 years!"

other spaces i exist in

i figured i should post a picture of my desk at work, since i spend a lot of time there when i am not in and out of meetings.

we're pretty industrial-chic in the office design department. our floor tiles are sheet metal, literally.

we're bursting at the seams though, we may move soon.
