It is no secret that the Pinoy Big Brother 2009 Big Winner, Melai Cantiveros, was raised in a simple and humble environment. The 30-year-old comedian grew up in Bohol with her grandparents in their ancestral Nipa house.
In an episode of ABS-CBN’s morning talk show Magandang Buhay yesterday, Melai and her co-host Karla Estrada paid a visit to her hometown. She then gave Karla a quick tour of their ancestral home. Of course, Melai also shared a few antics she did when she was younger. “Alam mo ang ganda ng bintana na ‘to kasi diyan ako umaalis,” she revealed.

Melai also shared that when she was younger, she and her siblings would take a nap in the afternoon at the living room area so that their grandmother can easily catch them in case they try to escape. “Nagga-guard siya sa’min, kasi para paglakad namin ‘Oy! Bakit sa’n ka pupunta?’” she narrated.
But unlike most Nipa houses, Melai grandparents’ is noticeably bigger. It has a living room, kitchen, dining area and bedrooms. It even has a refrigerator!
