welcome to first instalment of my blog series named "spaces i love", in which i will feature design style of houses and interiors that i love and adore from the web. i guess i just need to share my favorites with you because pinterest is just not enough. i hope you can find some inspiration for your space from this series.

i've always been a fan of japanese-style house. growing up with manga and anime, i found myself fond of their sleek styled house with all its simplicity and clean cut design. minimalist, can i say? not to mention their love of everything wooden. although i'm more interested in their modern house, i have this soft spot for their traditional house with tatami (isn't it adorbs?)

when i was surfing through the web, i found that one of my fave japanese brand, muji, also design house with their aesthetics and idea. keeping in mind that space is a major issue in japan, muji successfully design a practical yet comfortable, airy and flowy house as embodied in their third series of home design, "the vertical home".

things i love:
// the staircase. all the way to the top with minimal railing. practical much! not to mention the wall that also utilizes as book shelf. i can picture myself replacing the book with my albums and dvds. if i put mp3 stereo right there, i can hear the song playing throughout the house. sounds awesome.
// the laundry room that also functions as walk-in closet. talking about practical living here.
// the overall box-y exterior design. incredible! i love how they use darker shade of wood. it gives more earthy feels.

what do you like from this house?

“The sun,--the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man--burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.” Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist
it only took 1-1.5 hours to commute from home to workplace on my morning shift. work starts on 8.30am. plenty of time to catch the sunshine (and sunrise). however, my workplace is almost like a small box. secluded with minimal glimpse of sunshine. do the math with the freezing air con and rarely-cleaned-properly-carpeted floor. one by one of the workers in my department started to fall ill.

two weeks ago, i came to work seeing all the windows have been opened (but not the glass). finally the board started to take workers' health condition into consideration? i don't know. it was nice to see the sunshine seeping through the windows, though. it was pretty foggy but the sky was clear. and i am, less blue. sunshine does make a day better.

December 28th, 2014. Food Truck Festival @Living World
starting new year with past year's photos. how appropriate.

went to food truck party at living world earlier before 2014 ended. managed to try some food but failed to catch the tacos. how unfortunate. but mad props to kai pacifica for the awesome fusion burritos! tried the bulgogi and cakalang ones, and both are, frankly speaking, heaven in your mouth. can't wait to catch you on the next food truck event!

eventhough i'm not the type of person who write down her resolutions. i managed to wrote some last year, tho. but only managed to catch like, 1/3 of em? so i kind of decided that resolution is not for me. but frankly speaking, life should have a goal. i'll just keep them all by myself while you'll see the progress along the way.

here's to another year full of opportunities, experience, and joy! bring it on, 2015!
