Andrea Torres has set her sight on having her own house by the time she reaches the age of 35.

But in the order of her priorities, the welfare of her siblings comes first.

The Kapuso actress told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last Friday, July 16, 2021, "Yun yung next step ko ngayon

"Sabi ko nga sa parents ko, gusto ko maranasan yung feeling na nakapagpatayo ako ng bahay ‘tapos may room sila doon, may garden.

"Yun yung parang next goal ko ngayon kasi, siyempre, at first, ang gagawin mo muna is aayusin mo muna yung condition niyo.

"Ita-try mo rin muna i-help yung mga siblings mo. So yun yung next step namin ngayon. Hopefully, magawa siya, matupad siya."

DREAM DELAYED

Although buying her own house and lot has been the dream of Andrea for years, it crytallized fully into a goal after she celebrated her 31st birthday on May 4, 2021.

She has set a timetable of four years, on or before she turns 35.

But apart from helping her siblings first, Andrea said she was held back from fulfilling her dream by her own fears.

Andrea explained to PEP.ph, "Ako po kasi napakasigurista kong tao na parang gusto ko lahat pinaplano ko.

"Gusto malaman yung outcome bago ko siya gawin. Gusto ko maka-sure talaga na magsa-suceed ako bago ko siya gawin.

"And then naisip ko lang, nitong nag-reflect ako nitong naging 31 na ako na hindi, e.

"May mga bagay talaga na kailangan simulan mo na lang talaga agad dahil it feels right, yung ganun."

"Sa totoo, medyo natatakot ako na parang, hala, ang laki-laking step…

"Ang laki-laking step na maghanap ng land, na ilaan mo yung next few years mo para mag-build ng isang bahay o ano.

"Pero parang feeling ko lang na kung hindi ngayon, kelan pa, di ba?

"Dinasal ko naman siya, and feeling ko naman responsible naman ako pagdating sa pag-handle ng money ko.

"So ayun, it feels right. Feeling ko ito yung tamang time kasi lagi ko siyang dini-delay."

The Legal Wives actress added she started thinking of getting her own place when she was still in her teens.

Andrea continued, "Actually, nag-start na ako mag-isip nito 18 ako, e. Sabi ko nun, ‘Bili kaya ako ng condo?’

"And then naisip ko, ‘Hindi, huwag muna, huwag muna, natatakot ako,’ parang ganyan.

"And then naisip ko na naman siya nung mga 20s ako and then, ayan na naman, napangunahan na naman ako ng takot.

"So parang sabi ko lang, I think ito na yung tamang time to do things na lagi ko na lang dini-delay kas inga natatakot ako. Masyado akong sigurista, ganyan."

ANDREA'S DREAM HOUSE

Andrea has also given up the idea of getting a condominium unit mainly because of her love for the outdoors.

She rold Real Living in the same interview, "Mas gusto ko po talaga yung land and then, ako na lang yung magpapatayo ng house dun sa land na yun.

"Pero although nung una, nag-start ako with condo and the naisip ko, ‘Teka, mahilig ako sa outdoors.’

"So feeling ko, mahihirapan ako sa condo kasi gusto ko nung may mga plants, yung ganun. Gusto ko lagi ako nasa labas, naaarawan.

"And then, naisip ko, house and lot. And then, parang wala kasi akong nakitang design na akma sa gusto ko so ayun…

"Then, saka ko na naisip na siguro mas dapat land na lang and then ikaw na lang mag-build."

Although Andrea envisions a house of her own, she cannot picture how she wants it done.

The GMA Artist Center talent just wants her future home to be spacious with lots of windows, all wood and painted white.

She said, "Gusto ko lang po talaga parang maraming space, gusto ko yung open yung dating niya, yung ganun. Kung puwedeng maraming space, maraming windows.

"And mahilig po ako sa all-white and wood na may konting pop of color lang siguro. Pero, mostly, white and wood."
