After typhoon Ondoy destroyed travel blogger Glenn Martinez and nine-year-old son Joaquin's bungalow, they moved into a three-storey apartment nearby. Their new home now serves as a tambayan of artist friends and a venue for art events. It was even used as a set for an indie film starring Lou Veloso and Angel Aquino.

Glenn's ceiling is adorned with panels of a wood carved divider purchased at only P10 each. He bought the pieces when he got off a jeepney while traveling to Pila, Laguna. The rest of the house is filled with interesting pieces that each have their own special story to tell.
