While their dream house is still under renovation, Jessy Mendiola and Luis Manzano are staying short-term in a stylish and cozy rental home.
In Jessy’s Youtube vlog uploaded on Thursday, November 4, the couple took viewers on a virtual tour of their temporary home styled by Jessy’s sister Megan.
The “The Girl in the Orange Dress” actress revealed that they “fell in love with the house instantly” because of its aptly spacious interior that they found suitable for newlyweds.
“Sobrang nagustuhan namin kasi ayaw din namin ng sobrang laki na bahay, eh kaming dalawa lang naman… so gusto talaga namin, ‘yung mame-maintain naming bahay for two years,” explained Jessy.
While Luis showed his favorite artwork and cracked jokes in true Luis fashion, Jessy gushed over the couple’s choice furniture pieces, the sizeable yard where their dogs can roam around, and her own nook which she fondly calls “cloffice” (combining the words ”closet” and “office”).
“Nilambing ko ‘to (cloffice) kasi siyempre dahil quaint ‘yung bahay na ‘to, pili lang ‘yung rooms na pwedeng gamitin, eh ‘yung walk-in closet namin ‘dun sa master bedroom, medyo hindi kasya ‘yung mga gamit namin. So nilambing ko ‘tong room na ‘to para maging ‘cloffice’ ko para kunwari ‘pag nag-iisip ako ng bagong content,” Jessy spoke of her cloffice.
“In other words, gusto niya ng tambayan,” Luis chimed in.
Jessy affirmed, “Oo, tambayan ko habang nagpi-PS5 siya (Luis).”
If Jessy has her own chic tambayan corner, Luis takes pride in his outdoor gym.
Luis quipped, “Kasi hindi biro ma-maintain ‘tong kagandang katawan. Iniisip ng mga tao, ‘ay si Luis sobrang genetically gifted' hindi po pinaghihirapan ko po talaga.”
Even as viewers were treated to glimpses of the newly decorated house, there is one room that the couple refused to reveal just yet, and it’s their “future baby room.”
At one point in the vlog, Jessy candidly remarked, “Feeling ko nga dito na ako magbe-baby eh, 'yung first baby namin.”
She also shared a piece of advice to other newlyweds who plan on renting a place to stay in before moving into their dream home: “As much as possible, ‘wag muna kayong gumastos ng all-out, pero make sure na comfortable kayo at happy kayo sa itsura.”
