Chito and Neri Miranda's Monthly Household Budget is P20,000
They enjoy one of the perks of living in the province
In the household of Chito Miranda and Neri Naig, they maintain a monthly household budget of P20,000. “Lahat na iyon,” Neri Naig-Miranda told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the Globe myBusiness x PEP.ph Star Bazaar on August 17.
“Every month iyon, pero siyempre, iba yung sahod ng mga staff namin, parang ganon.”
The wais misis of Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda is aware that to live more comfortably in the country, the monthly household budget of P20,000 does not seem enough.
But Neri said that's all her family needs to maintain a modest life in Alfonso, Cavite. She continued, “Kasi namamalengke ako, e, magkano lang naman ang gulay sa probinsya? Parang naba-budget ko siya kasi P3,000 saganang-sagana ka na in a week. Sobra na iyon, di ba?”
Every month, Chito would give her money. But if Neri wants to buy something for herself, she said, “…ako na bibili. Nahihiya akong maghingi sa kanya, e.”
As a businesswoman, Neri simply followed her intuition when she was building up her mini-lifestyle enterprise. The celebrity mom of one said, “Ako lang talaga siya. Wala akong iniisip na, ‘Ito yata magugustuhan ng mga tao…'
“Nagugulat na lang ako na nagugustuhan nila [ang mga business ko]. Nakakatuwa.” Neri has an ukay-ukay, a bakeshop, and also sells gourmet tuyo, fashion jewelry, sleepwear, and bed linen.
What’s possibly next for the #WaisNaMisis? Neri has a “pangarap journal” to keep track of that. She told PEP.ph, “Meron akong pangarap journal, e. Doon ako nagsusulat ng lahat ng ideas. Since bata ako, ginagawa ko yun… Kahit nasa sasakyan lang ako, nag-uusap lang kami ng asawa ko, biglang ‘Ay, magandang business iyan, ah!’
“[Sasabihin ni Chito] ‘Business na naman!’
“‘Tapos isusulat ko. You’ll never know. At least kung hindi man sa akin, malay mo sa anak ko, puwede niya gawin iyon kapag nabasa niya!”
