Daniel Padilla has fulfilled his long-time dream to build a house for his mother and his family. In an interview with StarStudio magazine, the teen actor remarked that it is one of his biggest accomplishments to date.
"Ito talaga ‘yung dapat kong gawin. 'Yung makapagpatayo ng isang bahay na matatawag ko talagang sa amin. Para sa akin ang bahay is everything kasi lahat ng bagay pwedeng i-represent ng bahay. Kung may bahay ka na, ano pa ba ang kailangan mo? Ano pa ba ang mas kailangan ng isang tao kesa sa bahay? Ano pa ang hahanapin mo, eh iyong-iyo na 'yung bahay at 'yun na 'yun eh," he said.
He also relayed how happy he is to see his siblings living in a comfortable home considering that they were just renting apartments and condominiums before. "Sobrang happy ako tuwing nakikita ko ‘yung mga kapatid kong babae na tuwang-tuwa sila sa house. Sa totoo lang pare-pareho kaming excited umuwi ngayon."
Daniel shared that he is always ecstatic to go home now unlike before when he preferred spending his time outside. "Kung dati palagi akong nasa labas, hanggang gabi ako sa kalsada, naglalaro kasama ng mga kaibigan ko, ngayon iba na. Kunyari galing akong concert, instead na lumabas pa at mag-party, nagyayaya na lang akong umuwi," he stated.
The She's Dating the Gangster star shared that his other relatives are also living in their house. He said that he prefers having a lot of people around. "Ayoko ko kasi ng bahay na konti lang ang tao. Pareho po kami ni mama (Karla Estrada) na mahilig magkupkop ng tao. Nakasanayan ko lang kasi talagang na parang tig one hundred kami sa iisang bubong," he said.
