Alex Gonzaga still lives with her parents in Taytay, while her husband Mikee Morada spends most of his time in Lipa, Batangas, where he serves as a counselor.
The couple prefers that Mikee comes over to the Gonzaga’s every weekends than have her stay in the province, because she won’t be doing anything there and would only cause Mikee to worry for her.
This is their current set-up as their dream house is still in construction, which she admitted has been harder than she expected.
In a conversation with “Pinoy Big Brother” alum Slater Young and wife Kryz Uy, Alex shared, “Nando’n pa lang kami sa proseso ng approval sa subdivision, kasi ‘yung unang ginawa ng aming architect, hindi pala tama. ‘Yung mga easement.”
“Nagkamali lang ng one meter, another na naman. Ang haba, ang daming pinirmahan ng blueprint. Napakadami, napakahaba. Pero kailangan pala talaga. ‘Yun naman ‘yung ginawa namin nu’ng isang araw,” she added.
Alex went on to explain that she is a little overwhelmed with all the decisions they have to make. “Masakit sa ulo, kasi siyempre nag-feeling ako. Sinabay ko kasi. So mas tumagal. Kasi siyempre nag-usap pa sila sa architect. Gano’n pala ‘yun. Tapos namroblema pa ako kasi kailangan mamili ka na ng mga suppliers mo. Tapos ang mamahal agad. Sabi ko, ‘Oy, ayaw ko na muna. Nagkamali pa nga tayo du’n sa approval. [Dapat] kapag ka okay na.”
Luckily, getting in touch with her contractor has been easy because they are with her all the time. “What’s good is ‘yung contractor ko are my parents. ‘Yung bahay namin sina Mommy at Daddy ang gumawa.”
She continued that having her parents get involved in this process also saves her a lot of stress. “Naisip ko kasi na ayaw kong ma-stress na parang na baka hindi kami magkaintidihan ng contractor. Kasi maraming gano’ng stories, ‘di ba? Na parang in the middle of their construction, nagpapalit sila ng contractor. So, sabi ko ayaw ko na ng gano’ng stress kasi nagwo-work din ako.”
And no matter how busy her sched gets, she has no choice but to make time and deal with it. “Katulad no’ng meeting namin ng architect namin, ng interior designer namin, parang palagi ko pang naka-cancel. Alam mo ‘yung wala akong time masyado for them. At least ‘pag contractor mo is your parents, ‘pag uwi mo sa bahay, no choice ka, mag-uusap talaga kayo.”
