I love hosting people at my place, I make nice evening dinner for my friends almost every weekend and enjoy the moments with great friends. They feel home and often, they feel that don't want to go back to the city. I have 3.4 acres of private property, my husband and I are always busy at the yard. At summertime, we run our aquaponics for fresh green leafy vegetables and Tilapia!
I love a clean home, so I make sure that my surrounding is well maintained, my motto is cleanliness is next to godliness. You will expect crisp linens and clean towels.
My husband and I love outdoor activities, we travel a lot as well, we both went to Europe. I lived in Istanbul for 16 long years, I used to teach in a private kindergarten school there as TESL (Teaching English as Second Language) I love kids and I love my smart /loyal/protective German Shepherd dog.
I was born in the Philippines, but I decided to explore the world while young, so I flew to Turkey in 1989. I travel light, I can't be bother with a lot of luggage, I packed a couple of denim jeans, Tees, perfume, toiletries and my sneakers. A couple of nice evening outfit for romantic dinner with my husband. We love to eat healthy food, I cook most of the time. I have a lot of books on international cuisine, and i enjoy trying to cook different cuisine.
I and my husband love to watch classical movies, my husband is Clint Eastwood fan. We watched each of Clint Eastwood's movies at least 4X already. Don't get me wrong, we are still young at 40's :)))
Most of the time we watch National Geographic, Discovery Channel, Globe trekker, Wealth TV, an Idiot Abroad. Alaska's Gold Rush, Pawn Star. Reality TV shows are not my favorite though we watch them if it was interesting.
We bought our home sweet home only last April 2012, its a 10 year old house, and it's so obvious that the former owner took good care of this beautiful neat house. It's very homey, safe, quiet and air is cleaner than in the city. I have 3 neighbors who works in the city, in the Law Enforcement,
Five things that I can't live without is:
my wonderful & hardworking Irish husband
Since I host my friends a lot, they love the way I make them feel special, it's always been a personalized service, because I feel better when I make other people happy during their stay.
I love to sleep on a fresh clean sheets, so my guest will have the same treatment. Cleanliness is my top priority in my home. no clutter at all times.
I hope to see you around soon.!
Melinda & Tommy
