There are so many things to consider when starting out a family, and looking to buy your own house. Different people have different preferences and needs.
For Yasmien Kurdi and her husband Rey Soldevilla, Jr., their topmost concern was the safety and security of their only child, Ayesha Zara. Having a pilot and an actress for parents, their daughter was often left at home in the care of her trusted 'yaya' (nanny).
Hence, they decided it best to settle for a condominium unit.
Condos are known to have strict policies enforced, especially when it come to allowing guests in. CCTV surveillance cameras also abound in almost every nook and cranny, making the tenants feel secure 24/7.
"Before ka makaakyat, iyong visitor or kung sinuman, they [security personnel] would call you up.
"And then, dahil sa CCTV cameras, nalalaman namin kung saan pumupunta si Ayesha."
"Security and safety talaga no'ng bata iyong iniisip namin."
This three-bedroom unit in Taguig is what Yasmien and her pilot husband consider home. For them, the place has everything they need to raise baby girl Ayesha, from the pool to the play areas.
Yasmien is also proud to have worked hands-on on the unit’s interior designing, carefully picking out the pieces to complement the “modern contemporary” feel they were going for.
"Very homey, 'tsaka masaya, kasi comfortable and then simple lang, small house kasi condo lang."
"Do'n na ako nagbuntis, do'n na lahat. So, a lot of memories na ang nangyari sa place na ito. Kaya love na love namin ang house na ito."

KAMI further stresses the importance of family, and maintaining strong bonds and close-knit relationship. What makes a house worthy to be called a 'home' are the people in it, and the relationship shared.
