Great Buys at Mandaue Foam Home Store

When we were still furnishing our condo unit, we looked for furnitures that fit our taste and budget. We did not buy everything from just one store – we went from one store to another. We compared prices, measured furnitures that will fit our space, we thought about durability.

A light shining through
You’re barely waking…”  ♫♪

I’ve always been an early riser. This is my favorite time of the day. I like the calmness, that moment as the entire world is just waking up and you see the break of dawn as the sky changes from black to dark blue to sky blue with streaks of pink.
