Bea Alonzo’s 100th vlog was made even more special as she announced her most recent milestone: buying her own apartment in Madrid, Spain!
The “One More Chance” actress took to YouTube to share the exciting news that she has bought her own place in Madrid, which is the reason why she traveled there recently.
“Why Madrid, you may ask? I love Spain. Because of the pandemic, naisip ko na you only live once so I have to go for it,” she told the viewers.
“Since last year, I have been looking for an apartment. Nag-umpisa lang ‘yan sa pagtingin-tingin sa internet. Kaya ko ba? Kaya ba ng budget ko? Nakakatakot ba? Ano ba ‘yung mga rules? Mahirap ba?” she spoke of her decision.
Eventually, Bea learned from her ninang and her own research that Spain grants what is called the “Golden Visa” to those who wish to become residents.
“If you have a Golden Visa, instantly you will become a resident. Kung magwo-worry kayo kung magiging Spanish citizen na ako, nope. I was there for five days and I went there to do apartment hunting,” she said.
From a viewing of six apartments, Bea chose to buy one in the neighborhood of Chamberi. What she loved the most about the apartment are its interiors and overall design.
“I really like the interior. I like the material that they used sa entire apartment. Alam ko na hindi substandard 'yung materials na ginamit. I like the design of it all. I actually found the charm in it na pagpasok mo pa lang, pwede ka na mag-entertain,” she explained.
Bea also factored in the “barrio vibe” of the apartment’s location: “I like that it’s quiet. Mafi-feel mo pa rin yung barrio charm and vibe ng neighborhood. I like that it’s near good cafes. All the good amenities are right outside your door. I like the color of the entire apartment. I can see myself designing it.”
On that note, we look forward to seeing the furnished look of Bea’s new apartment!
