Ivana Alawi brought tears of joy to her brother’s eyes after surprising him with a piece of land as a gift.
The 23-year-old actress-vlogger said she decided to buy her Kuya Hash a property to build a house on after he repeatedly turned down her past offers to give him branded things.
“Si brother, ayaw niya ng mga Rolex, mga bag. Ayaw niya ng mga ganun kasi simpleng tao lang siya, hindi niya daw lagi sinusuot. Ang tagal kong pini-prepare na bilhan nalang siya ng lupa. At least ito di ba magagamit niya. Pwede niya pantayo (ng house) sa magiging asawa niya at sa magiging anak niya, for his future, at ito di niya masasayang,” Ivana said in her YouTube vlog on Tuesday.
The property is located within the subdivision where she’s also building a three-storey house for her family.
Before her big surprise, she asked her older brother to bring her and their mom to the site where their new home will rise 10 months from now.
She then asked her brother to drive them to a nearby location where she brought out the land title.
At first, Hash thought it was a prank.
“Are you pranking me?” Hash asked as Ivana loves to pull pranks on family members in her vlog.
Then he became emotional when he realized that his sister was serious.
“This is too much Mariam. Sobra naman ito Mariam,” an already emotional Hash told Ivana, calling his sister by her real name. “I can’t believe it.”
“You said you don’t want stuff so we decided to get you land,” Ivana, who was also on the verge of tears with her mother, explained.
Ivana also promised that when she has the budget, she will also build a house for her brother and for their youngest sister, Mona, in the future.
“I’m trying to prepare my family for their own family,” Ivana shared.
“‘Pag meron na kaming budget papatayuan natin yan ng house, magtutulungan kaming lahat. Ang susunod magkaroon ng lupa dun sa village na yun ay si Mona. Dapat lahat kami magsama sama sa isang subdivision. We will be together forever. Yun ang goals namin,” she also said.
