55-year-old Kapamilya singer and actress Zsa Zsa Padilla has always been dreaming of building a farm in the province where she can eventually retire in the future. That’s why in March 2018, Zsa Zsa and her fiancé, renowned architect Conrad Onglao started to work on building their future farmhouse Casa Esperanza, in Lucban, Quezon.
Way back in October 2018, the couple took to Instagram to share the update that they’re already in the initial stages of constructing the farmhouse. It shows a photo of the couple standing in front of the undisclosed site, which is bordered by trees.
“Hi, guys! Construction of our farmhouse already started. We are also building ponds along with the property and can’t wait to show you when it’s finished. I want to take a picture at this very spot when it’s done, hopefully by next year. #farmhouse#farm This has been a project of ours since March of this year. Architect Conrad has such a great vision for this place—I know…lucky me!” she wrote.
Fast forward today, the construction of Casa Esperanza is almost fifty percent done, but their house is still being built on the said property.
Recently on Instagram, the Divine Diva shared some photos and a video showing her simple and happy life on their beautiful farm in Casa Esperanza.
Zsa Zsa can be seen in her favorite outfit on the farm: T-shirt, jeans, and boots as she harvests some eggplants. She also showed the other planted vegetables and flowers as well as the beautiful view of Casa Esperanza taken from the outside.
According to a previous report, Zsa Zsa said that she and Conrad have been learning how to plant and harvest their produce so that once they have mastered the whole process, they can also turn this farm into a bed-and-breakfast destination in the future.
For those who are not aware, Zsa Zsa’s real name is Esperanza Padilla where they possibly derived the name of their farm, Casa Esperanza. She was born on May 28, 1964, and the daughter of actor and sportsman Carlos “Sonny” Padilla, Jr. who was the referee in the Ali-Frazier world heavyweight boxing match, “The Thrilla in Manila”.
