Pablo to buy a new house after signing a multi-million deal
Balak ko talaga bumili ng bahay sa may bandang Laguna at saka siyempre ipapasok ko rin sa bangko -- Myla Pablo
Pocari Sweat’s prized hitter Myla Pablo is looking to put her multi-million extension deal with the Lady Warriors to good use.
The National University product shared Tuesday night, a few hours after signing a 5-year contract and receiving a brand new car as part of her signing bonus, that she wanted to invest a part of her earnings in buying a house.
“Balak ko talaga bumili ng bahay sa may bandang Laguna at saka siyempre ipapasok ko rin sa bangko,” she said during Pocari Sweat’s victory party.
Pablo, a vital cog in the Lady Warriors’ Open and Reinforced Conference titles in the V-League in the club’s debut season in the 13-year old league, is also planning to put up a business and help finance her sister, Marites’ education. Marites transferred to College of St. Benilde after UAAP Season 78.
“Siyempre tutulungan ko rin ‘yung kapatid ko sa pag-aaral niya. Naglambing nga 'yun sa akin na, 'Ate, tutulungan mo naman ako sa pag-aaral ko di ba?' after niyang umalis sa NU," Pablo, who won the Open Conference Finals Most Valuable Player, said while laughing during a light conversation with reporters.
But the 23-year old hitter after receiving her second car now has some sort of a welcome dilemma.
Living in condominium in Makati, Pablo’s problem right now is an added parking rental.
“’Yun nga ang problema ko kasi extra parking din ‘yun sa condo. Eh magkano ang renta mga P4,000 ata?” said Pablo, who joined the team last year when the squad carried the Philips Gold banner in the Philippine Superliga where the Lady Slammers won third in the All-Filipino and Grand Prix.
A convenient solution is to buy a new house.
“Mas maganda na may bahay ka na tapos dun ka na magpa-park di ba? Di ka na magbabayad ng parking. Balak ko rin kasi kunin yung mommy ko sa Tarlac para sama-sama na kami dito,” explained Pablo, who also hinted that she’ll be tying the knot with fiancé NU women’s basketball head coach Patrick Aquino in a couple of years.
