Dennis Trillo has let on for the first time that he and girlfriend Jennylyn Mercado are building a rest house in Rizal.
The 40-year-old Kapuso actor spoke about this during a one-on-one interview with PEP.ph on September 7, 2021.
Apparently, the couple's target deadline for the completion of their rest house is in December.
Dennis mentioned the rest house when PEP.ph asked him about a Christmas tradition that he's looking forward to this year.
He said, "'Yung Christmas celebration lagi naman 'yan kasama yung buong pamilya. Pero hopefully, meron kasi kami pinapagawa na mountainside rest house. Hopefully, matapos 'yon at dun kami makapag-celebrate ng Christmas."
He then clarified that it's a joint investment between him and Jennylyn.
"Yes, sa amin ni Jen," Dennis revealed.
Does it work for a couple to have investments?
"Oo naman. Marami na rin kaming na-invest. Siyempre hindi lang namin sinasabi pero meron kaming mga plano."
They have been in a relationship for roughly six years now.
Denjen’s Cat Cafè Closed for Now
Dennis and Jennylyn have actually put up a cat café called Litterbucks located in Maginhawa Street, Diliman, Quezon City.
They launched it on February 8, 2020, or roughly a month before community quarantine was implemented because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since then, the cafe had adjusted to the ever-changing quarantine restrictions for restaurants.
But eventually, they decided to halt the café operations.
"Sadly, kailangan muna namin itigil 'yong business operations namin ngayon kasi nga 'yong nature ng business para siyang resto or puwedeng tambayan. Sa panahon ngayon, di akma yung mga ganoong gawain."
Nevertheless, the couple remains optimistic about pursuing other investments.
"Isa 'yon sa mga natutunan namin. Lahat naghihirap. Hindi porket merong ganitong klaseng pandemic, makikisama ka na lang na malungkot na lang at wala na lang gawin, 'di ba? Sa panahon na ito, kailangan mo mag-adjust, kailangan mo mag-ipon, kailangan mo isipin kung anong magiging okay at di magiging okay sa mga ganitong klaseng panahon."
Dennis on New Business With Jennylyn
On the day PEP.ph had an interview with Dennis, he and Jennylyn inked a deal for their new business together.
Jennylyn's caption read, "A new family business is in the works! Revealing soon!"
When asked about it, Dennis simply said that they will be updating their followers very soon. Smiling, he explained, "Sa ngayon, wala pa ako masyadong details na puwedeng sabihin, pero napapanahon siya. Sa tingin ko, maraming tao ang makikinabang sa klase ng produkto na ila-launch namin."
With regard to taking risks, Dennis pointed out, "Subok lang nang subok. Wala naman mawawala. Pag meron nangyari [na maganda], e, di mas okay. Kailangan may konting risk para makatanggap ka ng konting reward."
