Have you ever used your being attractive to your advantage?
Yes, I use it at work and to make other people happy! If they are attracted when I smile, then it’s an advantage for me. It helps me encounter people who are satisfied in my presence.
So how was your shoot with us?
It’s my first time to be made over, grabe, ang tagal pala! My eyes were red because makeup and hair took so long. Pagod na yung butt ko kakaupo! When it was done, my eyelashes and hair were so heavy I thought my head was going to fall off. Nakakatawang isipin, but it’s true! I didn’t expect that I would still have the energy to talk after the shoot. I then realized modelling is exciting.
Describe to us your ideal man.
All girls like the perfect guy. Someone tall, with flawless skin. Someone who has a stable job. Actually, tall or handsome or not, it’s okay with me, as long as may ambisyon sa buhay, mahal niya family ko, and he has values. I hate guys who are mabaho, mayabang and presko. Most especially I don’t like a guy who’s irresponsible.
Choose: A guy who’s smart but not too good-looking, or a guy who’s the other way around?
The guy who’s smart but not too good-looking. Mas mapapakinabangan mo siya sa lahat ng bagay kasi may talino siyang taglay! Ano naman ang gagawin ko sa good looking kung wala naman siyang pakinabang at pa-pogi lang?
If you were in a relationship, how would you be as a girlfriend?
I’d be both the sweet and jealous type. I like my guy to be focused on me kapag magkasama kami. Gusto ko gentle laging makipag-usap pag may problem, and there’s trust in the relationship. And dapat may something new pag may occasion!
Now describe your ideal date.
A place with a nice view, perhaps in Tagaytay. Just the two of us, drinking wine and having snacks, talking about the wonderful place, sitting there on the grass, covered with a blanket. We can be laughing or serious, any stories will do as long as we’re comfortable together.
