Back in 2017, owning a house seemed a faraway dream for Andrea Brillantes.
The young star then told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an exclusive interview that she started saving “para makabili ng malaking bahay para sa family ko."
Andrea repeated this in another interview held in August 2019, and happily announced that the construction of their family home has begun.
"Every blessing, nagtatabi lang ako para sa magiging bahay ko. Nung medyo madami na, sinabi ng nanay ko, kaya na magpatayo ng bahay.
"Nagsimula ako mag-artista, nagsimula po ako maging breadwinner ng 10, so pa-rent-rent pa lang kami.
"'Tapos ilang years ko na rin siya pinag-ipunan. Never ko din naisip na ganitong kaaga ko rin siya makukuha."
Her Instagram post dated January 12 showed that recent development: The two-story structure is already in place.
Her caption read: "'Good shoes take you good places.' Indeed! Site visit of my soon-to-be home. Sitting on the 2nd flr’s balcony while flexing my new [sneakers]..."
First, "Yung kasya kaming lahat. Kasi gusto ko man ng malaki, ang hirap din i-achieve..."
Second, "may aircon...."
Third, "Magkasama kaming lahat at magustuhan nila."
