Wala nang mas sasaya pa sa pagtupad ng isang pangarap.

Naipatayo ng magkapatid na Mik Pondevida at Enoue John Pondevida ang vacation house para mga magulang na hindi kinailangang mangutang.

Si Mik, 25, ay isang registered medical technologist, at ang kanyang Kuya Enoue John, 27, ay isang seafarer.

Sa isang Facebook community, ipinost kamakailan ni Mik ang mga larawan ng isang triangle house na ipinatayo sa Bulacan.

Ang kabuuang lote ay may sukat na 2,000 sqm. May wooden cottage at hardin rin.

Ang floor area ng triangle house ay 20 x 18 m, sabi ni Mik sa via direct messaging, noong February 7, 2022.

“It's more like a tiny house po. No bedrooms. Open deck yung upper deck.

“Dun po naglalatag as tulugan.”

The vacation house Mik Pondevida and her brother built for their parents.

Tanong namin, magkano ang inabot ng vacation house na pinagawa nilang magkapatid para sa mga magulang?

“More or less [PHP]1M including the lot na po.

“Started construction March 2021, napa-bless namin last December 2021, just in time for our parents' 28th wedding anniversary.

“Ongoing pa rin po yung development ng place until now.”

Proud sabihin ni Mik na mula sa sariling bulsa nilang magkapatid ang ipinagawang vacation house.

“Yung vacation house napatapos po namin na walang inutang or ni-loan.

“As for our finances, we spend our money wisely. We don't just save up. We invest.”

Sa Facebook post ni Mik, nabanggit niyang lumaki silang hindi mayaman. Ito marahil ang dahilan kayat naging mahusay silang magkapatid pagdating sa paghawak ng pera.

Ang sabi ni Mik sa PEP, “We are fine with not having the latest gadgets or the most expensive shoes or clothes.


“We live a simple life.

“Credit is a no-no.

“Ang mindset namin is, if you cannot buy something in cash or pay in full, then you cannot afford it.

“Financial freedom starts when you're debt-free.”

HONOring their PARENTS

Pangarap daw ng kanilang mga magulang na magkaroon ng vacation house.

“There are times na hindi pa nagsi-sink in sa kanila, na they have their very own vacation house.

“That was a lot more than what they dreamed of as a child,” sabi ni Mik.

“They were actually part of the planning and decision making. They were very excited and happy.”

Pagdating sa mga magulang, ibinahagi ni Mik ang isang Bible verse.

Mensahe niya, “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you." -Exodus 20:12

“We have always kept this verse in mind.

“Blessing overflows when you do things selflessly and when you honor your parents.”
