In her latest YouTube vlog, Kakai Bautista shows the three houses that have had meaning in her family life.
After six months of quarantine in Metro Manila, the self-tagged "Dental Diva" visits her family in Laguna, where all the three houses they've lived in are located.
Kakai's first stop is what she dubs the "Pacita Complex," a.k.a their current family home.
Her family has been living in this place for some time and, according to Kakai, they've been lucky to be paying a reasonable rent.
For her second stop, Kakai and family drive up to a nearby subdivision where their future home will stand.
It is still being built, but construction is expected to be finished soon.
Kakai says a bit more about this accomplishment in an Instagram post.
She says (published as is): "Ngayon lang kame nagkaroon ng sariling bahay. Di pa siya tapos dahil ipapayos ko pa sana ang interior kung hindi nakaroon ng pandemia.
"Oo nalungkot ako kase dapat nakalipat na kame pero alam ko may dahilan si LORD kung bakit di pa sa ngayon.
"At naniniwala ako na makakalipat din ang pamilya ko ditto!
"Si LORD ang bahala dahil sya ang gagawa ng paraan para matupad yun. Dahil napakarami na nyang tinupad sa pangarap ko."
The actress-singer has given her future home a name. "JB HOUSE ang tawag ko dito," she says, referring to the endorsement deal that gave Kakai the extra funds to achieve her dream.
She also discloses, "Di pa ito tapos dahil ang iba pa ay naloan ko sa bank."
Her childhood home near their current place is Kakai's third stop.
It was here that she lived with her grandparents. She was four years old when they moved in.
However, they were forced to move out when her grandparents failed to keep up with rent payments.
Kakai, growing up, had promised she would buy the house some day.
To own a home has been Kakai's dream for her family for "two decades."
She say, firmly, "Sugod lang, para sa pangarap kase alam kong pagtatrabahuhan ko ito at pagsisikapan.
"Gusto kong malaman niyo na napakaraming beses na [kaming] napalayas sa mga narentahan namin, dumating sa point na akala ko sa kalye na kami titira.
"Pero NAPAKABUTI NI LORD."
