Senator Lito Lapid is one of the Filipinos today who can be deemed as having risen from the ranks.
Before he finally got to have a mansion, he went through a lot of hardships in life.
In an old episode of Tunay na Buhay, KAMI saw that Rhea Santos was given the opportunity to tour the mansion of the senator, and at the same time, learn about the senator's past life.
As shown in the YouTube video, the senator used to put water on burned rice so that it will soften before eating, with salt as the only thing that could give some flavor to the meal of rice and water.
He also said that if they would be going to the field, there are times when they would not even have a plate and would scoop out rice using bare hands.
It could be seen that from being a worker, he got into showbiz and was able to successfully make it as a politician.
His house, with its grand furnishings, structure and overall appeal truly speaks of success founded on hard work.
Sen. Lito Lapid is a 62-year-old senator of the Philippines.
He has five children with wife Marissa Tadeo Lapid.
The good senator used to be one of the most popular action stars in the country.
