- A young couple shared the story of how they achieved their dream of owning their own house.
- They also posted some tips on how people can successfully do what they did.
- They said that they planned this huge step after a little more than a year in their relationship.
Every couple has a goal in life. Whether it’s to get married, have their own family, or just simply spend a lifetime together.
And just like any other relationship, this one couple shared a dream with each other: to have their own place to call home.
Ricky Jae Javate posted the recent achievement he and his partner, Sharmaine Fernandez Mamaril, have accomplished.
“Nabigyan na ng Kulay ang drawing lang naming pangarap noon. Nagstart din kami sa umpisa jobless at walang savings, pero dahil sa team work at diskarte sa buhay natupad din sa wakas,” Javate wrote.
The OFW clarified that he was not bragging about it but just simply sharing their little dream come true. He also gave a few tips on how to reach one’s own goals.
When we asked about the story of how they met, Mamaril said that they only met at a bus station.
“Pareho po kaming nagaaral dito sa probinsya pero magkaiba po kami ng school. Bale sa bus station lng po kami nakapgkita dati ksi nag OJT ako before malapit sa school nila . Then nakuha ko daw atesyon nya kaya hinanap niya ko sa Facebook at nagkachat nmn kami. Hanggang sa ligaw ligaw at pagkagraduate namen kami na.”
She added that they were only about a year into their relationship when they started planning their future. This included their decision to buy a lot. And as their salaries weren’t enough to pay for their expenses, they decided to work in Taiwan.
It was not an easy road for them because Javate was the first one to fly out of the country. “So dahil nga nauna syang mag-Taiwan, pinaka-challenge na na-encounter lang naman namin is yung ‘time’. Kaya nag decide na ko na sumunod na rin sa kanya sa Taiwan. At dun na kami nag-plano talga ng malakihang ipon for settlement na talga,” Mamaril shared.
And what can they tell couples who are also planning for their future? Set your goals.
“Syempre bago ka mag-abroad talga dapat alam mo talga yung goal mo. And of course, for us, teamwork talaga kasi mahihirapan ang isang tao pag mag isa lang siya . Positive mindset and faith to God and to each other.”
