Hello, High-Rise!

If you haven’t heard the news, I’m a homeowner now! At the end of August, I signed my name on a bunch of dotted lines as the sole shareholder for a co-op in Lafayette Park. After that horrendous experience I had gone through at Mapletree Apartments, this was like a breath of fresh air.

We are beautiful, inside and out, and we should not wait until that "perfect moment" to start enjoying our lives.
