You last appeared in FHM 10 years ago as one of our Girls Next Door. Do you realize that some of today’s staffers were still in grade school then?
Oh my! Ang tagal na. That was 2005. I was new to modeling then. Sobrang kabado ako sa shoot na yun. It was my first time to go sexy in front of a crowd! But I’m thankful because dun nag-start yung career ko, kasi after nun nagkaroon ako ng projects—print ads and car shows.
But you were only visible for a short time after that. What happened?
I finished school, then nag-work muna sandali. Nag-start ako ng business—cupcakes. I struck a deal with companies and distributed the goods. I also worked as an assistant sales manager at a real estate company. Pero easy money din kasi sa car shows kaya eventually I went back to modeling. I do both now—baking and modeling.
The schedule must be crazy! How do you manage your time?
I use a planner. Sa isang araw sinusulat ko yung gagawin ko tapos I stick to it para matapos ko lahat.
About those cupcakes. What makes them special? And more important, did you bring samples for us?
Ha ha! No, sorry! I always do two recipes, tapos I mix the best of both worlds. Basta pinapasarap ko talaga siya.
Do you ever bake late at night, possibly in your sleepwear?
I bake in the afternoon para ready to deliver the next day. I wear an apron and shorts. When you see me sobrang dami kong flour sa katawan. Messy talaga.
