Yes, the hot lass you're about to meet really goes by the name China Roces.
She can explain.
“Originally, I was supposed to be a part of a girl group called Street Beauties. Yung mga names namin are based on the famous streets around the metro, like Timmy Morato, Aurora Boulevar, and China Roces," she tells us. "We were supposed to make a movie bearing the same title, but sadly, it never pushed through. But since catchy nga yung name ko, it stuck with me.”
Ever since she embraced the name, good fortune has been pouring in. Aside from amassing several brand endorsements and numerous movie appearances, you can also catch China fooling around with Jojo Alejar on Medyo Late Night Show With Jojo A. Not bad for a showbiz upstart, huh?
How'd you find the shoot? You were so nervous at first!
Okay naman, medyo nakaka-tense lang kasi unti-unti naghuhubad! I’m still not used to doing sexy shoots. Actually, never pa akong nag-photo shoot ng sobrang sexy ng concept.
What was running through you head while you were doing it?
Para sa akin, challenging talaga siya, and besides hindi naman lahat nagkakaroon ng ganitong opportunity. Parang sinubukan ko lang, nag-try lang.
Well, you definitely nailed it on the first try.
Masaya naman kasi. Sana maging maganda talaga yung kinalabasan. Ha ha ha! Kasi medyo nagulat ako eh. Lalo na nung sinasabi nung photographer na "take it off."
Flaunt it if you got it, right? Moving on, what eats up most of your time?
Work. Busy talaga, pati nga hobby ko ngayon work na eh, ha ha!
What do you do exactly?
Aside from endorsing products, I also appear on Medyo Late Night Show with Jojo A. I’m one of their segment hosts. Binibigyan nila ako ng slot mostly twice a week. Ang ginagawa ko, lumalabas kami sa field and we interview people. 'Pag nasa studio naman, joke time lang with Jojo A. Nagbibigay ako ng mga news, mga tsismis na nakakatawa.
You really seem to be enjoying it.
Oo. Actually since bata pa ako gusto ko na talaga ‘to. Kindergarten palang ako kasali na ako sa pageant, so dream ko na talaga siya. Nung bata ako, sobrang mahiyain ako. Laging teachers ko ang nagpu-push sa'kin na sumali ako, kahit na ayaw ko pinipilit nila ako. May time pa nga na hindi ako bibigyan ng periodical test 'pag umaatras ako.
