A celebrity’s life is indeed enticing with all the glamour, fame, and richness that anyone can indulge in. However, it can also be tiring at times as celebs seem to no longer have a private life as they are constantly surrounded by the media and their every love is documented.
For some, this may seem as though they are deprived of their true freedom and that was what made Andi Eigenmann decide to just completely shut off her glamorous showbiz life and live quietly on the island of Siargao.
Andi was born to celebrity parents Jaclyn Jose and Mark Gil. So, it was no longer a surprise for Andi to be on the limelight since she was a kid.
Having had her fair share of controversies even at a young age, when Andi met her now-husband, Philmar, a known surfing instructor in Siargao, she finally decided to just settle down with him and build a happy family.
Through a Facebook post on their page Andi and Philmar, Andi shared how she realized that it was in Siargao that she found herself “fit” in the puzzle of her life.
Na-realize ko lang na itong lugar na 'to, dito ako nababagay. I sold everything that I felt was an idea of luxury that I…
The young actress said she decided to sell everything she owned that for her was considered “luxury” that she did not need. Cars, designer clothes, bags, and even make-up, she decided to sell it all and rip herself off of these expensive belongings.
She also realized that in Siargao, she can live without a driver, a housemaid, and all other stuff which she considered essential back in her younger years.
With all of these things now out of her life, she somehow managed to find the true meaning of happiness. And, as it turns out, it was not any material thing but the genuine smiles, hugs, and kisses from her beloved husband and their children.
