K Brosas got to build her own house at the age of 47, and this is something that she wishes will inspire others.
“Kahit paunti-unting ipon,” she told PEP Live.
“Kasi, pasensiya na pero mga kabataan ngayon, mga Gen-Z, meron silang ugaling nagmamadali.
“Meron silang timeline. ‘By the age of 30, kailangan kasal na ako. By the age of 25, kailangan may sarili na akong sasakyan. By the age of 32, kailangan may anak na ako.'”
There’s nothing wrong with setting goals, but her reminder: Do not be too strict about deadlines.
The comedienne-singer continued, “Ano mangyayari pag di mo na-achieve yun? Siyempre, madi-disappoint ka, di ba? So ako, there’s no such thing as a timeline. Wala siyang age limit.
“You are never too old to set new dreams, new goals.”
She underlined, “Wag atat. Mag-ipon.”
Her other important reminder was about spending money.
She advised, “Don’t spend more than you earn. Huwag yung pupunta ng Boracay, ‘tapos utang naman.
“Andami may utang sa akin! Lakas ng loob mag-picture sa Boracay. ‘Teh, kumusta kinakain niyo diyan? Parang ang sarap. Kumusta utang mo sa akin?’ Ang ganda ng buhay pa-Bora-Boracay!”
Admittedly, K herself was carefree with her earnings when she was younger.
“Nung 17 years old ako, malamang pinangkain ko lang. ‘Tapos nung 18 years old na ako na ako, masabi lang na legal age na, pinang-inom ko lang.
“Kasi after gig diretso inuman, e, di wala kinita mo, ‘Day. Kasi dati bata pa ako nun, wala pa akong responsibilidad.
“Pero mali yun, ha. Dapat the moment na nag-start ka magtrabaho, magtatabi ka na talaga.
“Yun ang di ko natutunan nung bata. Kailangan ko pagdaanan yung kahirapan at mga ilang beses na-bankrupt dahil sa kapabayaan sa pera at maling tiwala sa tao.”
K was moonlighting as a singer long before joining the band Gladys and The Boxers around early 2000.
Subsequently, she became known as a comedian and host having worked in all three major TV networks—ABS-CBN, GMA, and TV5.
At present, K is one of the main hosts in TV5’s reality show Sing Galing (M-T-TH at 6:30 p.m.) and Sing Galing Kids (Sundays at 6:00 p.m.).
