Condo living is such a blessing during the rainy season. You don’t have to worry about flooding in and around your residence or any power interruptions. Since condo communities are located near transport networks, you’re saved from the horrendous traffic jam. You can get home earlier than everyone else and cuddle up inside the comfort of your home.
Living in a condo is a preferred lifestyle in the metropolis, especially for yuppies and young families. A DMCI Homes condo is accessible to public transport and major highways, making it easier and more affordable to travel. It features an innovative architectural design that’s eco-friendly, and a wide selection of lifestyle amenities. Buying a condo is definitely one of the best investment decisions you’ll ever make.
What to do on a cool Saturday afternoon in your condo? Head on to the land of Netflix goodness. Here are 8 of the best Netflix series to watch this rainy season. (Rest assured that the recommendations below don’t include any spoiler.)
Queer Eye (Season 2 on-going)
Queer Eye isn’t like any makeover reality shows you’ve seen. It’s a reboot of the popular series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy but with the new Fab Five. Antoni Porowski is the food and wine expert, Tan France handles fashion, Karamo Brown is on culture, Bobby Berk is the design genius, and Jonathan Van Ness is group’s grooming specialist.
What’s unique about Queer Eye is the heartwarming stories behind every man and woman they help with the makeover. It may be a young gay man preparing to come out to his family or a single mom introducing her gay son to their community church. Prepare those tissues because every episode will leave you sobbing.
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Season 4 on-going)
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is probably one of the best comedy shows on TV today. It follows the (mis) adventures of Kimmy, played by Ellie Kemper, who adjusts to the “outside world” after being rescued from a doomsday cult. Kimmy joins aspiring actor Titus (Tituss Burgess) in a worn-down apartment owned by Lillian (Carol Kane). The script is topnotch, the cast is superb. You’ll definitely have a surge of happy hormones while watching every hilarious episode.
Ditch the salty chips and greasy burgers for something healthy. What about a fruit salad and vegetable sticks? Cut cucumbers, boiled carrots, and celery into thin sticks and dip them in salsa.
Superstition (Season 1)
The cooler weather is perfect for a horror-thriller. Superstition, an American show commissioned by Syfy, is about the Hastings family that’s in the business of everything dead. They run a funeral home, a cemetery, and the occasional freeing of souls of the dead killed my demonic elements. It also tells the story of the common woes of families that struggle to stay together.
Take a break after every episode of your Netflix series. Going on an overnight binge isn’t good for your health. Let your eyes rest. Move your muscles. Perhaps prepare a healthy rainy day munch?
Penny Dreadful (Seasons 3, concluded)
Keep the chilled atmosphere in your condo space with a dark TV show. Penny Dreadful, originally aired by Showtime, is available on Netflix in the Philippines. The beautifully written show tells the story of Vanessa, a woman haunted by the devil. She fights back with the help of friends that include known characters such as Victor Frankenstein, the werewolf, and Dorian Gray. Penny Dreadful is more than a chiller. It’s an epic storytelling with touches of literary genius.
