Given her busy schedule as the executive producer of a daily noontime show, Malou Choa-Fagar wanted a vacation house that she can come home to whenever she wants to take a break. As fate has willed, her husband Dante saw an ad in the paper which lead them to a Tagaytay house and lot. It was a dream come true – Malou and Dante bought it lock, stock, and barrel – fully furnished and landscaped.

The house is one with its surroundings. Its front and right sides open directly to the garden while the outdoors and indoors are delineated by a mere change in flooring and level. The slightly sunken ground floor is an open layout of two dining areas, a lanai that looks out to the front garden, and a pocket garden in the rear. The kitchen is in a separate gazebo on the left side of the house. Meanwhile, the second level hosts a living area and bedrooms for inhabitants.
