Where did we meet?
It could be in the most unusual places—at a club or through a friend maybe. But when I was in college, I met my ex-boyfriends mostly at school. And now that I’m working…you get the picture.
What were you wearing?
Sexy clothes, of course—white tank tops and skirt. But I can be girly, sophisticated and boyish at times.
What can we expect from a Cebuana like you? Is it true you’re more passionate as a girlfriend than most Manileñas?
I can’t say there’s much of a difference. I’m probably just the same as the most passionate girlfriend you’ve had. Passion I think transcends race or origin. Most girls have it.
If we asked you to move to Manila, would you say yes?
I've been to manila many times already. Sure, I can stay there for good—but only if I'd be given a very well compensated job. Ha ha!
What's the one thing you wish men could change about themselves?
I would say for you to identify your good and bad side. Nobody’s perfect, but you’ve got to accept and admit to your flaws. That’s the first step toward change.
What’s the one thing about you that would shock us?
If you'll look at me straight, you'd see that I’m very feminine, but what people don't know is that I’ve fired a 0.45 caliber pistol and an M4 automatic riffle—with my brother and my uncle from the SWAT team. We were supposed to try to fire a grenade launcher but it's too expensive. Ha ha!
