Since I started paying for a place of my own, my usual window shopping routine does not only include shoes and clothes but house furnishings, appliances, and furniture as well. I really don’t like it when people say “It’s one of my quirks”, but it’s one of my quirks. Home furnishing shopping that is. I couldn’t help it; every time I browse Apartment Therapy or Sweet Home Style, I get more and more obsessed about looking for objects to prettify my future digs with.
On my recent trip to Dimensione to compare furniture prices and such (things that I cannot afford if I shop at said store because all they ever sell are designer furniture, thank you very much), I gravitated towards the Trinkets and Useless Stuff to Spend Your Money On section. In true (please forgive me for referring to myself in the third person) Mara Fashion, I did not emerge from said section without not one one but two Useless Stuff at hand. I am proud to say that I just bought the first and ever article for my condo – ice cube trays.
These are not your ordinary ice cube trays, mind you. These are star- and penguin-shaped ice cube trays! Huzzah! And for P129 and P99,respectively, they are quite a steal. The star-shaped tray even came with a stirrer that you can set to the mold while the water freezes. Just like that, your drink becomes automatically snazzy with an ice star-tipped stirrer. In the misused and abused words of a certain DJ, “Crazy”.
I am now planning mojito parties, pina colada shindigs, and plain water made awesome with my penguin-shaped ice cubes. I have never been happier to part with my money. So as soon as I set up shop somewhere in Taguig, the ice will be on me.
