Repost: Andi Eigenmann Prefers Life in Baler, Says She's Single by Choice

Shocking to most it may seem but unlike most celebrities who enjoy luxury, Andi Eigenmann chooses to forego everything to have a simpler life.

Simple living for Eigenmann meant leaving the busy urban world and moving to Baler to enjoy a modest and laid-back provincial lifestyle. For starters, she spent her entire summer in the popular surf spot.

“Life there is just so different, it doesn’t mean that everybody should move to Baler with me but na-realize ko lang na itong lugar na ‘to dito ko nababagay. [this place, I belong here] I want my daughter to witness and grow up in a place like this and also the people. I’ve grown so close to the people who live there they’re like my family especially the little kids na mahal na mahal so why not just build my life there,” she very openly told members of the media during the press conference of her latest movie “The Maid in London.”

In fact, she was so bold at this decision that living simply to her also meant leaving behind the luxurious life she once enjoyed.

“I sold everything that I felt was an idea of luxury that I didn’t need, I don’t own cars any designer clothes, bags, lahat ng mga pang-artistang ‘yan, make-up lahat ‘yan wala na. Kahit mga kasama sa bahay, yaya, driver, wala na lahat, talagang simple life,” she said.

(… all of those celebrity luxury, I don’t have anymore. Not even house help like nannies, drivers, I no longer have those)

“Because I felt that this is one of the reasons why or nag-contribute siya sa pagiging toxic ng buhay ko.” she added.

(Because I felt it was what contributed to the toxicity of my life)

“And as much as my life is not as extravagant, nothing close to my life before, I could not be any happier,” she said.

House in Baler

A current development into her journey to simple life is the construction of her house in Baler.

“Pinapatayo po, lupa lang po ‘yung binili ko. Simple lang po talaga, maliit lang siya na bahay malaki lang ‘yung garden ako na ‘yung mag-plant nung mga halaman,” she said.

(It’s under construction, I just bought a lot. It’s just fairly simple, it’s a pretty small house with a big garden, I will plant the plants myself)

Her mother however, multi-awarded actress Jaclyn Jose did not exactly approve of her decision in fact she wants her to go back to showbiz.

“Hindi ko alam kung naniniwala ‘yung nanay ko sa’kin, she wants me to go back to showbiz tawag lang siya ng tawag, ‘nak ano ready kana ba bumalik?” she said.

(I don’t know if my mom believes me but she wants me to go back to showbiz, she often calls and asks me if I’m ready to go back)

She also clarified that she is single at the moment and is happy about it.

“I don’t have a partner, I’m single right now, happily single yes by choice,” she said.

    1. I think Andi has matured a lot and I admire her for living a minimalistic lifestyle. Yan din gusto khit I'm in my early 30s pa lang, but I really want to live in the countryside near the beach. Less pollution and noise. Pero sana di naman ganun kalayo ang department store to buy stocks for my kids like nappies. At sana stable pa rin internet kahit nasa probinsya.

    3. Jake likes them worldly. That’s how their attraction started anyway. If she insists on a simple life, she will only separate herself farther and farther from Jake. At least thy have Ellie. They will be linked forever because of their daughter. Pwede na siguro yun sa kanya.

  7. I can totally understand her. I also have a dream of living far off, I want to enjoy quietness, laid back life, and independence. Nakakahanga siya na tinuloy niya yung totoong gusto niya.

  8. She's single by choice. Ibig sabihin natauwan. Ginamit lang naman niya yung lalaki para maka move on kay Emilio. Oo magpapansin na kunwari masaya na siya. Kaso deadma si Emilio. Tambay naman yung pinalit niya kasi.

  9. Such a young age she choose to have a simple life. Sa ganyan age all you want to do is work hard, explore the world.. invest..etc..parang retirement na iniisip ni andi.. My question is since she has a child na san siya kumukha ng income niya since on and off na siya sa showbiz? ANYWAY, i admired her sa pinili niya life now.. less stress nga and hinde toxic.

    1. sabi niya si sold everything diba? so if she's living sa province, di naman kalakihan ang gastos dun. i guess ung mom niya rin is helping with the child

    2. Yes na i know she sold everything. Pero sympre single mom siya she has to earn to live most.esp may anak na siya..kahit your in a small province . Ako nga single mom i have to work kahit i still have support ng parents ko.

    3. Young age yes. But she has lived her life in show business and has made adult life decisions at a young age. Baka pagod na sa fast pace ng buhay niya. She wants to slow things down and grow up and live like normal people do. She will still have access to the rich lifestyle if she wants to go back to that, her siblings alone live with excess, so it wouldn’t be too difficult to get back to that if she wants to.

    4. Baka naman po may passive income investment (apartment, condo for rent for example) na yung tao na hindi niya na kailangan pa i-disclose in public.

  16. 1252 - Yan din yung naisip ko oo okay tumira sa probinsya pero lahat naman ng tao kailangan natin kumayod para mabuhay. Si Sam Pinto may resort sa Baler kaya may income. Ayun lang just my 2 cents.

  17. Pero kelangan pa rin niya ng car o kaya pick-up kaya para bagay talaga sa magiging provincial life niya.

  18. Ok lang yan if she does not have a daughter. Weird lang living the carefree and YOLO lifestyle yet may anak na siya.

    1. Hindi porke gusto niyang tumira silang mag-ina sa probinsiya ay ibig sabihin na carefree na siya.

  19. She has issues. Given the lifestyle she had, her attitude, and the lifestyle she currently chooses. i am willing to bet good money she’ll be back in showbusiness within 3 years. If she lives up to her statement, happy for her.

    3. She did not quit. Ayaw lang daw niya ng lead roles at pressure. So humblenof her actually. Habang yung mga ibang artista ang daming gustong patunayan sa buhay, siya relax lang. may work thank you, walang work okay. Diba mas masarap yun ganong buhay, walang pressure sa society.

    4. Jake's support for Ellie is most likely more than enough than enough if simpleng life lang rin pagpalaki niya kay Ellie.

      It is admirable Andi can live a simple life, be happy and self sustaining. She was able to get off the hamster wheel early in life. She seems to have grown smarter. Kudos! 👍
