SK Update: Dining Table and Chairs

Background muna. Except for the 3 beds, the kitchen cabinets, and an unfinished dining table, my home doesn’t have any furniture. Mono-bloc chairs lang kung matatawag mang furniture yun hehehehe. I don’t have a sala set, clothes cabinet, book shelves, TV rack and whatever else that should be in a house to at least keep it organized. There was really no major improvement after I had it blessed in 2013.

And so in 2017, I commit to make more improvements in my Baguio home (aka SK Baguio) as soon as saved budget permits.

Improvement #1:

I now have non-mono-bloc dining chairs. My brother made them during his free time. We have been using them since late February I think and I’m loving them so far.

In fairness, pulido ang pagkakagawa. OC rin kasi ang kapatid ko pagdating sa mga projects nya hehehe. Galing-galing.

The dining table was made by my father. Awww I think this was his last project for me. Huhu. Anyway, I think the pine wood used was donated by an uncle. Galing pa yan sa lugar ng nanay ko ata. The titos knew I was on tipid mode because of all my loans those days so naawa ata at dinonate na lang yung wood hahaha.

The table did not have varnish though so my brother also did the finishing to match the chairs.


Chairs on the making


Tada! The finished product. While my dining area is small, I still love staying here because it is beside a window with a view of trees and mountains.

I am not sure of the cost because materials were purchased separately, plus those we bought were not consumed just for these pieces. Wala pa akong time (and tyagang) mag-break down and compute for now hihi. For my brother’s labor, he’s requesting that I buy him one of the main tools he’ll use for all the furniture so that we don’t need to borrow from the other brother. Besides, all tools from cousins/brother/friends are always in use. Sayang ang time!

Until the next house project! We already have several furniture lined up. I’ll just post them once done but so far, here’s what’s in my list which are my priorities.


Priorities which hopefully will be completed this year.

How to Post to a Self-Hosted Site Using the WordPress Mobile App

Trying to post using the WordPress mobile app. 

If there is a mobile app for, there should also be one for self-hosted WordPress sites, right? Right. 

But it’s not actually a separate app. You can use the mobile app for both .com and your self-hosted site.

How? By using the Jetpack plugin. 

Here’s what I learned should be done. I’ve watched 2 tutorials in YouTube too.

  1. Download the WordPress mobile app.
  2. You should have an account in If none yet, go ahead and sign up.
  3. Install Jetpack plugin. You will do this in your self-hosted site’s admin site, and not in the site. It requires version 4 and up so update your version if needed.
  4. Activate the Jetpack plugin.
  5. You need to approve access of to your site (or maybe it’s the other way around). I cannot remember the button that shows up as per the video. In my case, I was logged in to at the time I clicked on Activate button so I was right away redirected to the Approve button. You need to approve that so that your site will be listed in
  6. When you login to the mobile app, you can now see your site, as shown below. 

I am still in the discovery phase. Like right now, I can’t find the full justify option hehe. 

But I’m glad I now have this as another way to publish my posts. 

Mobile app!
