The Parokya ni Edgar frontman just can’t help but get excited about being a dad for the first time.
He recently shared an adorable photo of him assembling cribs for his unborn child.
“Medyo excited. Medyo lang naman,” joked Chito in the caption. “Inassemble ko na yung mga cribs kanina. Dalawa yung cribs namin kasi bumili ako ng isa tapos niregaluhan kami ng friend namin ng isa pa!
The two cribs, he gushed, were perfect for their rooms on both floors of their house.
“Para di ko na kelangan magkalas at mag-reassemble everytime tatambay kami sa baba or dito sa room namin,” wrote Chito.
After he assembled it, however, his wife Neri asked him to take it down since it will just be gathering dust until she gives birth in November!

The excited dad-to-be also took to Instagram to express how proud he is of his resourceful and entrepreneurial better half.
“Nakakatuwa ‘tong si Neri,” he wrote in a recent post. “Abalang-abala sa mga micro-business nya. Parang naglalaro lang pero nakakatuwa kasi kumikita naman sya.”

“Una yung gourmet tuyo, tapos meron pa syang beddings and weddings, tapos ngayon naman pinag-aaralan nya daw yung bago nyang pinagkaka-abalahan, yung room spray daw na mura pero mabango,” shared Chito.
Nakakabilib kasi super liit lang ng puhunan nya pero nagagawan nya ng paraan. Tapos yung kinita nya, instead na gastusin, gagamitin nya ulit para gumawa ng bagong project na pwede nyang pagkakitaan hahaha wais na wais eh.
“Nakaka-bilib kasi super liit lang ng puhunan nya pero nagagawan nya ng paraan.”
“Nakakatuwa kasi nakikita ko kung gaano sya kasipag kahit katuwaan lang yung ginagawa nya. Feel na feel nya yung calculator at cash box nya na blue haha! Pero ang pinaka-ok dun, nakakaipon sya at may sarili syang pera.”
He also shared that he still covers their household budget, wanting to be a good provider.
“Pero malaking bagay yung may sarili syang income para di nya kelangan humingi kapag may gusto syang bilin. Kahit ok lang naman sa akin na humingi sya ng pambili ng kung anu-ano (syempre asawa ko sya eh kaya obligasyon ko yun), mas gusto nya syempre na may sarili syang pera pang-gastos.”
“I try to guide her, give her opportunities to earn for herself, and to be as supportive as possible sa mga projects niya. Kasi syempre tag team kami.”
Instead of simply handing her the budget, Chito encourages her to earn as well. “What I do is I try to guide her, give her opportunities to earn for herself, and to be as supportive as possible sa mga projects niya,” shared Chito. “Kasi syempre tag team kami.”
Neri shared this teaser to her new project: a line of linen and room sprays! With the teaser, she also shared some advice for those who want to start their own micro-business.
“Marami ang nagtatanong sa akin kung paano daw magsimula ng small business. Naku, ako din ay nahirapan,” confided the mom-to-be. “Ang dami kong naluging pera. Nakakapanghinayang. Paano kase di ko pinag iisipan mabuti saka wala akong kaalam alam sa pinapasukan kong business. Banat na lang ng banat. Kaya broke ako sa mahabang panahon. Napansin ko din na dapat ang attitude mo ay laging positive.” She also stressed the importance of focusing on the solution instead of dwelling on problems; finding the right partner is also an important factor of succeeding in one’s entrepreneurial pursuits.
