Celebrity mom and vlogger Rica Peralejo took a trip down memory lane and shared with fans how she built her family’s old condo from scratch.
In a series of photos, Peralejo showed the gradual transformation of the condo unit, as per her Instagram page yesterday, June 6. Her dining room, bedroom and living room were shown in various states of repair, design and being furnished.
“This was my fourth home in life. It was where we brought our firstborn home. It was also where I learned to be faithful with the few. Third in this carousel is a photo of what [we] had for our sala,” she recalled. “Wala man lang couch. Wala ding dining.” (It did not even have a couch, nor a dining area.)
Peralejo did remember though that she focused on fixing the bedroom first since that was all that the budget can afford, and because she considered sleep important. Before she knew it, little by little, she was already able to furnish the entire 117 square-meter unit.
In her vlog last June 5, Peralejo talked more about her past homes and stressed the importance of not rushing when building a home because it is a step-by-step process. She also shared her realization that if she can take care of a few things in a little space, God will entrust her with more in a bigger space.
When it was time to say goodbye to her family’s old condo, Peralejo shed tears as she considers it not just a place to live in “but a space where so much of our life has changed, where God had increased us in every way.” JB
