At the start of the year, Pauleen Luna began her journey as Mrs. Vic Sotto.
She opened 2016 with her much-anticipated wedding, and ushered in a new chapter with a house blessing of the home she will share with Bossing.
In the June 28 episode of MARS, Pauleen talked about their new house in Laguna.
"I didn't get a project manager for the house, so ako talaga, nagtiyaga talaga ako.
"Kumbaga yung pinagawa lang namin is structural.
"So everything—from the tiles to the roof to the paint, hooks, hinges, everything—ako talaga bumili."
The couple were "very hands-on" with the construction that took a year and a half.
Pauleen herself supervised the workers who did the finishing touches.
One thing she learned: "Tip sa mga gumagawa ng bahay: ang dapat, may extra tiles kasi it's very easy to break."
When they finally moved in to their Laguna home on June 15, it became easier for her to settle into her role as Mrs. Sotto.
She said, "Medyo ngayon ko lang siya na-fi-feel kasi kakalipat pa lang namin sa new house.
"So medyo hindi na ako nagpakaligaga doon sa pinanggalinggan namin na house. Ngayon kasi, talaga inayos ko siya from scratch.
"Ngayon, na-e-enjoy na namin yung bahay kasi bagong-bago 'tsaka natutukan namin.
"Memoryadong memoryado [namin] ang bahay."
By the way, a portion of the wall displayed the abstract paintings of Vic's daughter Paulina.
