“Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight, gonna grab some afternoon delight…” That’s Starland Vocal Band’s “Afternoon Delight”—a song our May Girlfriend knows by heart. And why not? It’s the same song she was playing while conceptualizing the restaurant and catering service she put up from hard-earned cash...
I started modeling at the age of 19—pinagsabay ko ang modeling and school. I was able to book well-paid ads and ramp shows but I had to leave din agad for Macau and work as a welcome ambassadress. I went home two months after and went back to modeling, until I decided to stop and realized I had enough money to start up my own business.
I came from a family of very good cooks. In fact, I’m the only one who can’t cook, ha ha! At ako pa ang nagtayo ng business. My restaurant specializes in Kapampangan cuisine, but the money pours in the catering service.
Whenever I feel stressed, I go to the mall and watch movies with my brothers. Whenever I’m alone I just ice skate—it’s my therapy. I started skating when I was a kid and although hindi ako professional ice skater, it’s what I do to take my mind off all the problems.
