It’s safe to say that Kris Aquino’s life is an open book. She has lived her life under the spotlight and for decades, we have been privy to the details of her daily routine, her endorsements, and her career moves. 2017 proved to be a challenging yet blessed year for the actress as aside from building a stronger presence online and starting a couple of businesses, she also moved into her new home in Quezon City with sons Josh and Bimby.

While we’ve featured a few details and her envy-worthy kitchen in previous articles, nothing beats watching Kris give a tour of the space.
