You look like the perfect mix of Pinay and Chinese, we wouldn’t have guessed you were either!
I was born in Pasig and moved to the States when I was about 13. Went to college there. Got into modeling at 15. I started doing a lot of print work, and then I graduated and went into commercials and acting. And then it’s World Poker Tour!
Does your job require you to be tough on the poker table too?
I used to play online for fun, and at home with friends. But I watch a lot of WPT so I was really excited to be a part of it.
So let’s say you earned a big prize pot. How would you spend it?
Shopping! Ha ha! I shop for a lot of swimsuits. I love the beach. Every chance I get I go to the beach to just chill. It’s my happy place.
Poker faces—how good are you at reading them?
Actually, I’m not. I just laugh a lot during games and confuse the hell out of people. I think I’m just lucky because I don’t really know how to read people. I kind of mind my own game and play with my cards rather than other people’s cards. I’ve been winning so that must be a good strategy, ha ha!
