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. It’s also nice to actually meet and talk with friends over dinner instead of sitting uncomfortably on the bus. But my favorite? Being able to clock in more hours of sleep!
