Kathryn Bernardo has been working non-stop since she started in the industry nearly two decades ago. And for that, she has decided to reward herself (and her family) with a beautiful home which had a groundbreaking ceremony last March. 

 

 

According to Kath, the house she started building for her family would probably be her most expensive investment ever — putting a lot of her hard-earned money in what she described as a life-long asset.

“Biggest investment ko recently ay ‘yung bahay. Investment ko iyon pang habang buhay,” she told PUSH in an exclusive interview for Lazada’s upcoming 9.9 Mega Sale campaign. 

Kathryn said it was her mom who taught her where to put her money — investing in real estate due to value appreciation over time as one of the reasons. 

 

 

“Si mama, tinuturuan niya ako on how to invest sa lands, kasi ‘yan yung mga tumataas over the years. So I think, very wise ‘yun na mag-invest ka ng mga ganong bagay,” she said.  

Meanwhile, the 24-year-old actress revealed that she purchased a vacuum for herself for her birthday. While it seems to be a small thing for someone like her, Kathryn considers it a great buy since it proves to be useful to her.

“My recent purchase na feeling ko good decision na binili ko would be the vacuum. Gift ko sa self ko for my birthday since quarantine na tayo noong March was a vacuum. Super happy ako kasi nagagamit ko sa bahay pag naglilinis kami dito; kasi may carpet dito since may dogs ako. Sobrang useful,” she said. 

 

 

The young actress also talked about what she considers a “good deal” especially when buying stuff online. 

“As an online shopper, I think kapag una of course, legit yung product. Something na kung ano yung nakita mo sa app or sa website, ‘yun yung makukuha mong quality. Quality is important para hindi masayang ang money mo,” she said. 

 

 

She went on: “Second siguro yung mabilis kong makukuha. Kung kailangan ko ngayon, ilang days makukuha ko na agad safely sa bahay. Hindi na ako lalabas. And good deal kapag pasok sa budget. Lalo ngayon na very important ang budgeting, kailangan lahat ng lumalabas na money, lahat ng ginagastos ko it’s really something na hindi too much.”

On joining Mimiyuuuh — whom she has worked with in the past — as Lazada ambassador, Kathryn said: “Sad lang kasi di kami nakawork. Magkasama kami sa commercial pero hindi kami magkasama sa shoot kasi nga very limited ngayon as we follow the safety protocols but I am very happy.” 

 

 

She added: “Nanunuod ako ng mga vlogs niya and I’ve worked with her sa ibang projects din. Siya yung original, siya yung nauna dito sa akin sa Lazada so at least merong isa akong kilala na nag-welcome sa akin sa brand. Hopefully ‘pag okay na lahat, we can do events together or kung ano man. I am happy na kasama si Mimiyuuuh kasi she’s really fun.”
