You’re the girl who did that yummy dance to ringback in one cell network TV ad. Now you’re famous.

Yes, that was a commercial for Smart. Although of course I would like to think that my TV hosting for MTB: Ang Saya Saya did it for me as well. But, yes, that ad was big. Just imagine that scene where I was just a girl in a coffee shop and then seconds later I became a ledge dancer! Plus, that was my first-ever TV commercial. I had never actually done VTRs for possible TV ad gigs prior to that.


Good work. What will you be busy with next?

Now I’m part of the new ABS-CBN gag show called Quizon Avenue with brothers Epi, Vandolph, and Eric. I also have a new album out called In The Mood For Love which has both dance and ballad tracks. And then I endorse the Belo Medical Group of Dr. Vicki Belo.


Let’s go back to the first time—how did you land the spot in that ad?

I don’t know. (laughs) Maybe they wanted a new face, young, someone who could dance…I just found myself in the final casting and then the next day, it was shooting day.


So did they make you shake your booty all throughout the shoot?

Oh yeah, they made me dance the whole day! I think I began at 6AM and it ended at around 12 midnight. I bruised my knees and all because I had to get up on that ledge for every take. I really had a hard time doing that commercial, but it was all good because that commercial made me kind of—kinda!—famous.
