In 2012, actress Pokwang opened the doors of her home to the YES! Magazine team. Around that time, the house was around two years old as construction began in 2010. In just eight months, the actress’s envy-worthy property was completed, with interior designer Janet Diquiatco-Torio working on the interiors.

Nag-ground-breaking kami ng mga May 2010. Tapos, no’ng mga first week of June, ayan na, kinayod na ‘yan. Ang laki ng batong nakuha nila, e. Ang laki ng backhoe na ginamit,” she relates. Since the place where the house stands is quite hilly, the construction team had to build a retaining wall to ensure the structure of the house as well as the safety of the people living in it. “Kailangan, e. For safety. Di mo masabi ang nature,” Pokwang adds. A result of her hard work, the house, which has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, is indeed an investment and a reward that the comedienne deserves.
