Andi Eigenmann, 28, did not pass up the chance to emphasize that her decision to live a simple life in the province is real and refused to take a netizen’s saucy comments sitting down.
This had to do with a netizen contradicting the praises that Andi has been getting since it was reported that she gave up most of her luxuries and left her home in Manila in favor of solitude in Baler, Aurora.
Andi’s critic wrote, “define simpleng buhay… of course she still have all the perks in life, big haus, yaya, cook, etc. the only thing she’s living in a small town away from the metropolis.”
In response, Andi insisted that she and her six-year-old daughter Ellie have been living in Baler without any household help for quite some time now.
“not that you need to be informed but the point is that – I sold everything. And no. Ellie and I don’t have help around the house. Its just the two of us.”
It was in July when Andi spoke about how she sold most of her material possessions, including her van, after realizing her dream to build a simple home with a garden that is also near the beach since she loves surfing.
Andi said she has been renting a place while building her own home in a lot that she purchased in Baler.
"Simple lang po talaga, maliit lang siya na bahay pero malaki lang yung garden.
"Ako na siguro yung magpa-plant ng sarili kong vegetables."
She also admitted to travelling by bus from Baler to Manila whenever she needs to be in the city for work commitments.
