On our way back to Manila from San Juan, we made a stop-over in Dagupan, Pangasinan for late lunch and a visit to another dear friend from college, Ivi Crisologo-Dimasuay. Ivi and her husband Arnel are both based here in Dagupan City, where they have a design showroom of beautiful furniture made from mostly recycled wood. On the floor above the showroom is their home where every nook has a story to tell, from old gasoline containers turned lamps to capiz window shutters simulated to look like real window shutters.
Ivi is still the same sweet soul I knew from college and Arnel who I met for the first time comes across as sincerely kind.
The warmth of wood and the warmth of the Dimasuay family, both joys to keep forever.
