From appearing on national television and rising to popularity as Ms. Pastillas, Angelica Jane Yap has come a long way. She now owns a YouTube channel with over three million subscribers. As a full-fledged content creator, Angelica shares snippets of her personal life online, including her relationship with rapper Flow G. In June 2020, the two announced that they will be living together. One of the milestones they celebrated as a couple was when they moved in to their first house together--a cozy townhouse in Quezon City.
In a recent vlog, however, Angelica opened up about why they are moving houses now after staying in their townhouse for just eight months. The internet personality shared that it's because of several reasons. One is that the members of their household are starting to grow. Before it was just Angelica and her boyfriend staying in their four-bedroom townhouse. Since then, Angelica's siblings have also moved in with them. "Kasama sa growth namin ni Archie [Flow G], mas dumadami pa yung kasama namin lalo rin sa bahay... Siyempre, sa townhouse, may mga rules 'yan. And I understand dahil nga pandemic din. As much as possible, mini-minimize nila yung mga tao na tumitira sa house," Angelica explains.
Another reason is the nature of their jobs. As content creators and media personalities, the two rely on making content and collaborating with other creators to earn a living, which can get pretty loud, to the point that they have received noise complaints from neighbors. "Hindi naman kami mga walang hiyang tao na wala kaming pakialam sa mga kapitbahay namin," Angelica says. "Kaso kasi ang hirap naman magpasaya ng tao kung wala kang energy."
According to her, the need for more space is also a big factor. From two cars, the couple has also invested in two more vehicles and their old house had limited parking space. Their business venture, Tea Mebs, is also growing and the stocks they need for the business are being stored at home.
"With everything--yung mga noise complaint, parking, and kulang na space, we decided na kailangan na talaga nating mag-move out." She explains. "Kaysa naman constantly kaming nirereklamo ng kapitbahay namin 'di ba?"
