House Update #04: Ang Pagbuhos

It's been a while since my last post re our house construction. Why? Wala kasing progress for the past 3 mos. How I wanted na mkipag away sa Camella and contractor because they don't deliver on time. Hubby and my parents prohibited me from doing so dhil daw bka paglaruan ang quality ng house. Dapat daw maging mabait at bolabolahin, kung pwede nga daw suhulan, suhulan. Hehe.

Anyways, finally the construction begun 3rd week of March. So it's very impossible that we can move by May, they're new target is July - which will be the turn over month. How I wish we can move out before I give birth, pero parang it's impossible :(

The foundation and footings or what they call "buhos" commenced last April 1 at around 4PM wherein the scheduled time is 11:30 AM. Na pa whole day leave tuloy kmi ni hubby instead na half day lng sana. We wanted to witness the "buhos" because we believe in the pamahiin na magsabog ng coins during the "buhos" proper, pampaswerte and for abundant life daw. This has been a practice in our family, everytime na may papaconstruct/renovate sa house nmin we do this . . . ok naman ang buhay nmin, hindi naman kmi naghirap or nagutom. Hehe. Pero ung pagsabog salt hindi na kmi naniwala dun para di daw kmi multuhin or aswangin - we will have it blessed naman. Hehe.

It was hubby who did mostly the pagsabog ng coins. He didn't permit me to roam around the small construction, mabato kasi bka daw madapa ako, my role was maging amuyong at photographer lng. Kundi lng ako buntis malamang sinamahan ko pa ung mga construction workers magbuhos. Cowboy here. Hehe.

The sun was really striking hard that day, pero nung actual buhos na umambon then right after umaraw ulit, ang galing! Nakakatuwa. We consider it as a blessing tlga :)

After 3 days . . . this is their accomplishment, not bad. We were actually with our free of charge consultant. Hehe. Archi Jowette (my HS friend)

Though the construction is delayed hubby and I are still happy to see na ang pinaghirapan nmin is turning now into reality.

Great! I hope that my wife don't get to read this blog entry! Hehehe. I have yet to plan for the same endeavor and I am already exhausting my wife's patience as he really wanted a house of our own. Hehehe.

Anyway, there will always be a time for that. At any rate, I am happy that from a dream, soon your home will be a reality. Naks!

Job well done!

Hello. We will be neighbors in Grenville. My house is practically done, only thing missing are the interior decors and utilities. Are you aware of the status of our electrical and water connections? Electricity can be remedied by Camella temporarily, but there's no timetable yet on when there will be running water in Grenville. I heard that phase 2 of Pacific Residences is still not connected to Manila water 1 year after the 1st residents moved in. I'm so disappointed...
