Next month, we are planning to relocate from Manila to Daang Hari at Cavite. After my mom’s house was caught on fire at Alabang 2 years ago, my husband and I, together with my brother and sister decided to purchase a house for them. We wanted to still be near in the Alabang area since my siblings workplace were near there, so it’s a good thing that Camella has an ongoing project near the area. Purchasing a house and lot is a big decision for us because we don’t know what will happen to us while paying for it’s monthly amortization in the future, so we prayed hard for it.
I am glad that we were able to finish paying the down payment already and we are now on the 1st year of it’s monthly amortization. The turn over unit looks like this.
Yes, it’s so simple and plain – no tiles on the floor, white paint only, no kitchen cabinets and no fences outside. So, there are still a lot of work to be done before we can transfer and call it home.
As of now, what concerns me more is the transportation. We don’t have a car and the subdivision’s only means of public transportation as of now is a shuttle van. You can’t depend on it if you are in a hurry because it tours around the entire subdivision.
There are some car dealers who offered us used and second hand cars. We have already checked on some, and since I don’t know anything about cars, a friend suggested to us to use a Auto Trader’s car valuations to know the true value and specs of a certain car model.
Unfortunately, we cannot afford to buy a car as of now, oh yes even a used cars. It is quite expensive and we don’t have a budget for it even though we need it. A tricycle I think, is more feasible since it is a lot cheaper than a car.
Let’s see what will happen. Hope we don’t end up getting a roller blades for each one of us. LOL
