My Dining Table

Remember the unvarnished dining table that I told you about here? The one with kuya in booty tooch? If you forgot na, here are the photos.


I kinda felt sad that R came home last Saturday without them; that we ate again buffet style. Then we went to Bataan for the annual summer outing of his family, my in-laws. I will tell you all the juiciest details on a separate post, soon. Kapag medyo kalmado na ako, na-stress ang reyna doon, muthers. Hint: Fajardo's Beach Resort in Bagac, Bataan. Epic fail. So when we were there, he was in contact na pala with the furniture -maker and some of his men to help him deliver it to our place. 

We went home from Bataan with a slightly heavy heart because of some unwanted incidents in the beach resort. But still, R and I were both excited for our pasalubong for the house. It was supposed to be Tanguile nga 'di ba, but the furniture-maker opted to use a better kind of wood the hubster forgot to ask what was. Some of the workers daw said it's "century wood", the one that are used for "antique" furniture daw. Medyo naguluhan ako dun. Ginagawa ba ang pagiging antique? 'Di ba anything old is considered antique? Laboness. So I Googled what could "century wood" be. Oak daw. Well, I will still make kulit R to ask them what kind of wood ang ginamit sa dining table ko. Of course, dapat malaman ko ang kanyang pinagmulan. Dahil hahanapin ko ang tunay niyang mga magulang. Charot.

So, ayan nga we have na our bulky but beautiful dining table. To be honest, hindi siya bagay sa apartment. It's meant for a big house! In short, sumikip ang balur. Hehe. 


I just want to thank you, my dear Rhambo, for giving me more than what I really wanted. I asked for a nice table where we could eat our meals at; something we could buy at a mall, made from the same material like that of my blogging table. But you gave me this custom-made, solid wood though unknown, bonggang dining table. The chairs are bigger than the standard size, it was more like a throne - fit for us, royalties. Char. But yeah, that's why I wanted you to be the first to sit on it, the king of our kingdom. I'm sure I will always prepare a feast for you when you're home. Say, a King Sue breakfast this weekend, my bacon monster? After all, King Sue's tag line is "a feast fit for a king". Pak na pak. 

It surprisingly arrived yesterday. King Sue Ham's post-Mother's Day gift for me. Yum.
How about you mudrabelles, what small or big things has your husband done for you lately? Let's make chika about that. re

  1. Hardwood furnishings like that are so much better than the ones sold at the mall ;) My husband also picked our table and it's made of mahogany. We both love it because of its beautiful carvings at the base. The chairs are also larger than usual - and heavier hehe

    Yours look like it's made of narra or acacia - great choices for tables :) Enjoy your table kahit it made the space smaller pero puede nga pang royalty no? hehe

    1. Yes Joy! It's 4-seater lang but it's big, especially the chairs. Nice yung pagka-varnish kaya it looked like Narra. I will have a glass table top made pa. Tsaka cushion pads for the chair. :)

      We're blessed with the kind of husbands that we have. Pak.

    1. Bet ko yung term, mass-produced. Oo nga, kaya bukod sa blogging table ko, super favorite thing ko na ito. Kung pwede lang dito na ako matulog eh. Haha! Charot. ;)

  3. I like it. Mas maganda talaga kapag pinasadya ang furniture. For sure that table will bear witness to a lot of feasts in that house.:)

    BTW, new reader ako. Found your link from Mommy Fleur's blog and I'm having so much fun back reading your entries.

  4. Ganda ng table mo. Ang husband ko rin ayaw ng gawa sa mall kasi madali daw masira kaya custom made din gusto nya plus maliit din ang house namin kaya dapat custom. They really are like that talaga, practical pero maganda ang choices. Hehe. Enjoy your meals! Fit for a royal family talaga. :)

  5. Hi! I like it! Would you mind sharing kung saan nyo pinagawa yan? We're moving to our new house by the last quarter of the year so we're scouting for good finds (aka maganda pero di kasing mahal!). Hehe! :)

    I'm a new reader too and so far, I enjoy reading your blog! Pak na pak lang! :)

    1. Hi Kay!

      Naku, sa Zambales pa ito galing. Tsaka kakilala lang ni Rhambo ang owner nung shop kaya walang definite price. :)

      Thanks for reading my blog! Mwah! :*
