How do you see your career five years from now?
I somehow see myself doing films and appearing in teleseryes in GMA 7. Actually, I really love acting and I believe I’m good at it.
What is your dream role?
I seem to like the roles of Angelina Jolie. I like her in Tomb Raider; she’s a very good actress. Someday I’d like to be a versatile actress just like her.
If you’re not acting, what do you think would you rather be doing?
I’d like to be a young entrepreneur. I want to have a business that caters to health and beauty, such as a spa or a salon.
What other activities do you enjoy doing aside from those you do in show business?
I like going out with my friends especially my non-showbiz friends. We usually go out-of–town, but sometimes we simply enjoy the nightlife in Quezon City, either in Timog or Tomas Morato.
What gadgets do you own and which do you love the most?
I own a laptop and a cellphone. But I love my cellphone the most, because with my phone I can do almost everything I want like talking to my friends, and checking on my facebook and twitter accounts.
How do you think these gadgets help you in your everyday activity?
Through my phone, I can easily talk with my handler, and the “Walang Tulugan” staff. I can also connect with my fans using my laptop. Online ako lagi. (smiles)
As a celebrity, what do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of social networking sites?
Social networking sites makes it easy for me to access all my needs in showbiz — like my call-time slip, script, and a constant communication with my handler and fans. Disadvantages? I can think of none as of the moment.
What is your perception about the innovations in technology at this point of time?
All I know is that it’s costly. After I bought a gadget, for example my cellphone, around 6 to 8 months passed and then a new version arrives. Technology progresses so fast, keeping up with its progress is going to be really hard, and it might get even harder.
