Some celebrities have made use of their time in quarantine on home improvement activities.
That is not the case of GMA-7 actress/host Maine Mendoza, who's still in the process of completing her own two-storey home.
She told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an interview via Zoom last Tuesday, August 10, 2021, "Actually, nagpapagawa pa lang ako ng bahay ngayon.”
The Lazada Sulit Sweldo Sale ambassador further shared, "Nasa Bulacan ako currently.
"Andito ako sa house ng parents ko, so wala, wala akong balak galawin dito.
"If by the time I get my own house, doon na ako magre-renovate, if a place there needs renovation."
DREAM HOME: UNDER CONSTRUCTION
In her previous interview with PEP.ph, Maine revealed the construction of her dream house started in 2018.
The Daddy's Gurl star said her future home is a two-story mansion with a view of the city.
She said, "Lobby pa lang, pasabog na! Modern po. May pool, merong movie room, merong garden."
Maine was supposed to move into her house in December 2020, but the pandemic had caused major delays in the construction of her house.
At this time, she herself has no idea when she can move into her new home.
She said, "Actually, dapat two years ago tapos na siya. Honestly... parang lagi ako nadi-disappoint.
"Hindi ko rin alam kung kelan ako makakalipat kasi medyo strict dun sa village kapag nag-e-ECQ.
"So hindi sila nag-aallow ng workers doon sa area. So ayun, medyo uncertain din kelan talaga yung exact date ng pag-transfer ko sa house.
"Pero, hopefully, this year. If not, hopefully, next year. Ang hirap talaga, hindi ko masagot."

MAINE'S DREAM HOME
PEP.ph asked Maine which area in her house she's most excited about.
Maine answered: the walk-in closet.
The Eat Bulaga host explained, "Siguro yung walk-in closet. Yun kasi talagang dream ko rin, magkaroon ng sarili kong walk-in na malaki.
"So ayun, excited ako to see kapag tapos na. Pero sa ngayon, well, magdadasal muna ako na makalipat ako soon."
Maine has started buying items for her house, but when she gets around to doing that, the first on her list will be disinfectants.
She said, "Siguro lahat ng pang-disinfect since yun talaga yung mga una kong binili sa Lazada, yung mga pang-disinfect.
"And yun din yung mga gini-gift ko sa mga friends and sa mga kakilala ko.
"So yun siguro, yun yung kukumpletuhin ko muna sa bahay ko since very timely, and yun naman talaga yung kailangan natin ngayon. Essentials talaga siya.
"So, lahat 'yan, iisa-isahin ko."
