How did you make the most out of your first time in the country?
I got a breast augmentation at Beverly Hills 6750. That’s what I’ve done so far, and some shopping. The other night I went to Opus bar and really had a great time. Tomorrow I believe we are going to Manila Bay.

Cool. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen while on tour?
I’ve been traveling since I was 10 years old. I’ve been around Australia, Europe and Asia so nothing is really fresh or weird to me.

You mean the jeepneys are all right?
I find them interesting, but I didn’t get a chance to ride one because we have a personal driver here. But I heard they are a very affordable mode of transport.

How about the buses on the highway? Do they ever scare you?
Let’s just say whenever I’m in the car I put my hands over my eyes and look straight forward. One time, I thought a bus was going to crash into a car. If people drove like that in Australia, there would be murders in the street! Ha ha!

Okay, so please tell us more about yourself.
I’m from the West Coast of Australia; I live very close to the beach. I love going out with my friends. I’m a party girl so I like socializing. I’m also a promoter—I promote a lot of bars and nightclubs. I have a dream of doing TV one day and getting into hosting and presenting.

How do you find the party scene in Manila?
It’s just the same as in Australia. The music is fantastic; I must say it’s even better. The DJs are livelier and more upbeat. But most of the people here are not really dancing— they’re just having a good time. Promoting here, I think, would be even better because there’s a variety of night clubs to choose from. We don’t have that much in Australia.

Is going home drunk a requirement in the kind of job you’re in?
There was a stage that I used to drink a lot, but in Australia you cannot drink and drive. I tend to be sober by the time I get home.

What’s the wildest thing you’ve done in the club?
I always get up on the bar, drink shots and have everyone start dancing. But this one time my best friend and I slept over in the club! We couldn’t get up until the next day, but that was, like, good fun and no harm done. Every wild night is a good night!

How should men act around women during nightouts?
They should know to treat a lady with respect and speak to them properly. They should also say something witty. “Hey, can I buy you a drink?” is always the best thing to say. If we say no, don’t be so pushy and just leave. The worst thing for a guy to do is be pushy and don’t take no for an answer.

You think men are a load of bull crap?
Ha ha! Not really, but whenever I go out clubbing I don’t tend to talk to a lot guys because in my opinion they don’t have their best intentions at heart. Most guys just go out for a hook-up for the night.

Ouch. What kind of guy do you look for outside of the club?
A good smile and a good body. I’m European myself so I go for that Euro look: tall, dark and handsome. Nice arms, nice eyes and a sexy smile get me all the time.

How are we Filipinos faring in your man meter?
Actually I have seen a couple of goodlooking ones. To be honest, Filipinos are far more good-looking than the Chinese or the Japanese!
