Aside from having a second home under construction, vlogger Ivana Alawi revealed that the spacious room dedicated for her walk-in closet in her current home has been under construction for the past two years. At the moment, the 24-year-old actress said she’s been using a smaller closet inside her bedroom temporarily.
Ivana showed her YouTube followers how she plans to divide the room into separate areas for her makeup, bags, clothes, and shoes. Part of her plans include replacing the current windows with one big glass panel for a clearer unobstructed view. The loft-type closet also has a staircase which will have gold railings because it is Ivana’s favorite color.
“Nag-hold talaga kami ng construction dahil nga sa COVID tapos pandemic tapos ayaw din namin magpapasok ng mga tao kasi nga di ba nakakatakot,” she said.
She also shared the actual designs of her walk-in closet made by UID, the same group who renovated her home in Bahrain and who is also behind the design of her other home which is still under construction.
“Mahilig talaga ako sa white and gold so minake sure ko talaga na gusto ko white and gold lang yung closet ko wala ng ibang color. Kasi ever since, kahit noon, mahilig talaga ako sa white, gold, tapos marble,” she explained.
The actress, along with her two siblings Hashim and Mona, started painting the room and tried out their hidden handyman skills in various parts of the room. After trying out different activities, Ivana shared her newfound appreciation for workers after their experience.
“Hirap na hirap ako so dun ko nalaman na masipag ang mga construction workers, yung mga nag-re-renovate, kasi ang hirap ng trabaho nila. At saka mainit at pagod talaga. Lakas ang kailangan so good job guys. Sa mga construction worker, thanks for making our house this beautiful. Thank you for building houses along the way,” she says.

Before ending the vlog, Ivana explained the need for a second home as well as what her fans can look forward to in her future vlogs.
“Malapit na rin matapos yung bahay na pinapagawa namin, yung nakita niyo na parang three floors. May bubong na, may hagdan. At kapag na-interior na siya at ready na siya, itu-tour ko rin kayo dun. So yung bahay na ito is parang evictee house. Kung i-evict ako ng nanay ko eh di doon ako (laughs). Mga one and a half months tapos na rin yung closet ko so baka sabay sabay sila matapos. So puwede ko kayo gawan ng house tour and closet tour kasi ang daming nag-re-request. Nadidinig ko naman yung mga request niyo,” she added.
