Though most of her business decisions impress her rock star husband Chito Miranda, Neri Naig’s purchase of a condominium unit without his knowledge got her “scolded” by him, she said,
The celebrity mompreneur narrated how she was able to purchase a condo unit, as seen in her Instagram page yesterday, March 2, where she also showed a photo of a pool view from a high-rise condo building. The unit, located in Quezon City, was turned over to her on the same day.
“Kapag may kinikita ako sa mga negosyo ko, nirere-invest ko para mas mapalago ko pa. Kagaya ng condo na ‘to, nabili ko sya preselling pa lang kaya nakaya ko yung monthly payment,” she said.
(When I earn from my businesses, I re-invest [the profits] to earn more. Like this condo, I bought it during pre-selling which was why I was able to afford the monthly payment.)
Since she acquired it without Miranda’s knowledge, he was surprised when he received an email from the developer, congratulating him for the purchase.
“Nalagay ko kase sa form yung email add ng asawa ko. Malay ko ba na i-email din sya! Hahaha!” Naig laughingly stated.
(It’s because I put my husband’s email address in the form. How should I know that he would also be emailed?)
Miranda was supposedly bothered by the condo purchase because he thought Naig would not be able to finish full payment of it.
“Pinagalitan talaga ako ng asawa ko kase baka di ko raw mabayaran at masayang pera ko,” Neri revealed.
(My husband really scolded me because he said I might not be able to pay it and my money would have gone to waste.)
But now, she said Miranda is already taking care of the condo and even wants to buy it from her since it is in a good location and accessible. Naig also proudly stated that she used her own money to buy the unit.
“Kaya palagi kong hinihikayat ang lahat ng mga kababaihan na mas maganda na may mga sarili tayong pera, may sarili bank account, sariling ipon,” she said. “Wag nyong sabihin na madali lang kase sayo Neri kase may pera ka. Nagsimula lang po ako sa 3k na puhunan sa pagtutuyo,”
(That’s why I always encourage all women that it’s better if we have our own money, our own bank accounts, our own savings. Don’t say, “It is easy for you, Neri, because you have money.” I started with only P3,000 as capital for selling tuyo.)
Naig is into various businesses such as gourmet tuyo, a spa and wellness clinic, a clothing line and real estate. JB
