Chito Mirandra is a proud husband.
Within three months, his wife Neri Naig was able to acquire three real-estate properties.
In August 2020, she bought a lot in a village that Chito liked.
In September 2020, she purchased a condo unit at Pico de Loro, a beach resort in Batangas.
Then in October 2020, the celebrity entrepreneur got her biggest purchase yet: a 6,000-square-meter lot.
Here's Chito bragging about his wife, the self-tagged "Wais Na Misis," in an Instagram post he put up on October 7.
The Parokya ni Edgar frontman wrote, "Bumili si Neri ng 6000sqm na lupa...langya.
"Ako, kumikita pa rin ako sa pagbabanda. Thankfully, we still get our full TF [talent fee] for all our online shows.
"Nakakapag-provide pa rin ako for our family, at nabibili ko pa rin naman yung mga gusto kong baril.
"Pero di ako makakabili ng 6000sqm na lupa.
"She did this, after nya bilin yung lupa dito sa village na gusto ko, at yung condo nya sa Pico de Loro.
Most important of all, Chito wants it known he is proud of his wife's investment savvy.
And, no, it does not make him feel insecure that Neri is earning more from her business than he does from making music.
He declared, "Tawagin nyo nang pagmamayabang dahil pinagmamalaki ko yung ginagawa ng asawa ko...
"Or sabihin nyo nang nai-inggit ako dahil mas malaki na yung income nya compared to what I was making, even before the lockdown started...ok lang.
"For me, sobrang proud lang talaga ako (paano ako magyayabang, eh achievements nya yan...not mine), and instead na inggit, I'm honestly inspired by what she is doing.
"Katas yan ng tuyo at kape...at ng suka, at ng beddings, at ng affordable na alahas, pajama, and soon, her own online shop.
"And recently, nakabenta sya ng 15 na lupa in less than a week... by utilizing her #teamwais network of resellers and distributors by making them referral agents for a licensed real estate company.
"All this was done online."
For good measure, Chito dispelled the thought that Neri had it easy because she is a celebrity.
He asserted, "At kung sasabihin ng iba na si Neri lang naman yung umuunlad, at dahil artista kasi sya...
"Ang tanong ko is: una, sobrang sikat ba ni Neri to entirely use that as an advantage?
"At baka di lang din nila nabalitaan yung isang reseller ni Neri na nakabili ng dalawang sasakyan (isang car at isang van na pampick-up at pan-deliver ng tuyo) at yung isa naman na nakabili ng townhouse.
"Hindi artista yung mga yun, and online selling lang din yung ginawa nila...pero t*ngina, sobrang sipag nung mga yun."
WaisNaMisis vs. MasWaisNaMister
Seeing how all these achievements have been made possible through online selling, Chito went on to encourage others to follow the example of Neri—beginning with himself.
"Ako honestly, na-inspire na din ako gawin yung ginagawa ng asawa ko...actually, gusto ko syang tapatan! Gusto kong bumili ng mas malaking lupa hehe!
"Tara...gawin na natin 'to.
On a serious note, the musician wrote, "Bakit ka mahihiya mag-benta online, eh kung makakabili ka naman ng dalawang sasakyan?
"Mahihiya ka ba na panay benta mo sa FB at IG, pero may townhouse ka naman?
"Kung tulad ka ni Neri na walang paki sa sasabihin ng iba, at handa kang tutukan at paghirapan yung goals mo, umasa ka na magagawa mo din yung ginagawa nila.
Neri saw Chito's "#MasWaisNaMister" tag and replied, "Abaaaaaa. May humahamon [laughing emoji]
"Team Chito vs Team Neri... maganda yan!"
She then asked, "Sino ang mas wais?"
Chito answered, "si mister."
A netizen seconded Chito's answer: "si mister. Kasi tama ang pinili na misis."
Neri laughed, "tumpak na sagot!"
The former actress then posed her own challenge to husband Chito: "tignan natin kung makakagawa ka rin ng community nyong mga team chito at op kors, nasa sale yan [laughing emoji]
"dito natin masusubukan ang marketing strategy nyong mga lalaki [rolling on the floor laughing emoji]"
