Life in Oz can’t be that bad. Why the sudden relocation?
Coming back here has always been in my heart. I was just waiting for the perfect opportunity. I wasn’t a hundred-percent in my job and my friends were also moving so I thought, why not?
What makes you proud to be Pinoy?
Everything about us! I am proud that we have this ingrained sense of hospitality and generosity. It’s also a plus that we’re a generally happy bunch despite all of life’s worries. I think that’s our one-of-a-kind trait.
What kept you busy in Australia?
Well, I worked as sales manager for a company. I was modeling as well, but nothing as sexy as this. Aside from that I go to the beach, get a tan, and jet ski. I will miss clubbing with my girl friends. We’ve always had the craziest times. Oh, and I will miss the beaches! I will miss that anywhere you go, the average drive to a beach is 15 to 20 minutes.
