You said you were just referred by a friend. Does this mean you’re new to the industry?
Not really. I’ve done events, and I have a girl group and a singing group to be launched.
Wow, that’s quite a lot. Can you say modeling is your bread and butter?
Actually, I also own a salon in QC. It’s near my house lang. I also have a part-time job in my mom’s company, which is a heavy equipment supplier.
Is your salon open to serve men, too?
It’s a women’s salon talaga. Specialist kasi kami sa hair strengthening. But we do have regular male customers.
Okay, now let’s talk about your love life…
Loveless ako ngayon. Life lang—walang love. Ha ha! We just broke up. My ex and I are still in good terms, nag-uusap naman kami. But maybe we’re not meant to be lovers.
Is it you or is it him?
May problem siguro sa kanya. Although may dine-date ako ngayon. He’s a nice guy, pero siyempre ingat din ako kasi alam mo na, minsan iba ang takbo ng utak ng lalaki. Di natin masabi. Siguro takot lang akong masaktan.
Can you read a guy’s mind?
What are the signs he just wants to get into your pants?
Yung mabilis siya sa lahat. Gusto niya ganito, ganyan agad. Wag ganun. Bigyan mo ng time yung tao. Also, I want someone who’s understanding. And there should be trust kasi yun ang importante sa relationship.
Does the first kiss ever happen on the first date?
Sa third date siguro, ha ha! Pag gusto ko naman yung guy, tsaka maayos naman ang treatment niya sa akin, kini-kiss ko siya sa cheek. Yun ang sign na like ko yung tao.
How about sex? When is it possible?
Ay, hinde. Matagal yun. It will take a year or more. Lalo na ngayong busy ako. Ang focus ko kasi ngayon laging nasa work.
But you do have days off, don’t you?
Pag wala akong pasok, natutulog ako, hindi ako nakikipag-date, ha ha!
Really? So when was your last time?
Three months ago.
How long can you live without a man?
Ten years. Sa family naman [kasi namin may edad na pag]nag-aasawa. Like my aunt, she got married at 40. Yung iba kong relatives up to now single. Ha ha!
