Jim Bacarro and Saab Magalona are probably two of the most relatable and down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet—which is probably why their podcast “Wake Up with Jim & Saab” has a huge following. May consider them “couple goals,” and as with every relationship, theirs is all about supporting each other and adjusting to each other’s quirks.

Home improvement is one area that Jim and Saab have interesting discussions of. “How do you guys do it?” Saab asks during a recent interview with Summit Editors. “Kasi I just can’t make a decision.”

“Before we had a condo,” Jim adds. “’Pag-uwi ko minsan bigla na lang wala na ‘yong pintura ng buong pader.”

Watch them talk about their home improvement adventures in the video below:
