    It really is true that sometimes it is not our job that will define our success in life. Sometimes, what matters most is how hardworking and good you are in managing your earnings. A fishball vendor has impressed many netizens when he showed off the fruit of his labor - a 2-storey house.

    Michael Gripal Relucio posted photos of his house's ongoing construction on the Simple House in the Philippines Facebook group. According to Michael, the 2-storey house is a product of his hardwork in selling fishballs along the streets.

    He wrote, "Isa po akong fishball vendor. Nagbunga po ang aking pinaghirapan. Konti na lang po matatapos na."

    The house he is constructing is almost finished. From the lower level to the second floor, we can see that it is made of solid concrete in the photos he shared. In order to improve the aesthetics, they also used a few tiles as siding on the exterior walls.

    There is an aluminum screen door and sliding glass windows in the house. Additionally, the window features decorative moldings to further enhance its aesthetic appeal. A small terrace can be seen from the bedroom on the second floor, which has a steel railing to keep it safe. Throughout the house, they installed wall lights.

    Despite the fact that the house is still under construction, Michael has already shared a few photos of the interiors. The kitchen/dining room is separated from the living room by a mini bar with enough lighting. The house has tiled floors, including the stairs leading to the second floor.

    Earlier, another story of a fishball vendor also captivated the interest of netizens. Cath Conde Bugia shared a conversation between a teacher and a fishball vendor. During the talk, the teacher was so surprised to know that the fishball vendor earns over P1,500 a day, and that is just for one cart. The vendor has two carts and even employs workers to assist him. According to the vendor, he was able to buy a piece of land and plans to buy an apartment unit soon.

    Truly shows that sometimes success in life isn't defined by the job you hold or the degree you finished.
