I’ve been living in a condo unit for about a year now. The building is just a ten-minute-walk from my office, and while it is located near a busy commercial and business hub, I always feel safe just walking to and from work. Aside from this convenience, I also appreciate getting an extra four hours for myself—no need to endure the grueling traffic plaguing the 20km-trip from our house in Quezon City to my office in Mandaluyong!

Living in the middle of the city means I get to squeeze in midweek workouts at the gym, eat healthier by preparing my own meals, and avoid hyperacidity because I can eat on a regular schedule. It also means being able to read books and watch all the TV series I’ve been meaning to catch up on.
