After living in fear for a considerable amount of time post-Ondoy, Mina Lim decided they needed to heal the wounds that the typhoon inflicted upon her family.

Their healing home came in the form of a two-strey Modern Asian home in another Marikina subdivision, which Mina often regarded as her “baby”. Standing on a 400sqm lot, the house has three bedrooms, five bathrooms, three kitchens, two living rooms, and a garage. The house itself speaks volumes about the owners’ love for pairing the traditional with the contemporary.
