Ashley de Mundo and Tan Roncal or AshTan, a Kapamilya loveteam that was fused on Pinoy Big Brother Otso has finally given us kilig vibes once more with their recent guesting on iWant ASAP with hosts Edward Barber, Maymay Entrata, and Darren Espanto.
Revealing their activities during their past months of quarantine life, Ashley said she has been very happy to spend more quality time with her family in their home in Sydney, Australia while Tan has been staying at home in Manila with his family as well. They also said they have been doing workout routines and other physical activities like swimming and jogging in order to stay fit.
Tan shared that he and his family weren’t able to fly back to their province because of the lockdown. Aside from bonding with her family, Ashley shared she’s been also working on improving herself and added that she’s been playing the online video game series PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or more commonly known as “PubG” with Tan—something that made the love team still connected even though they’re countries apart.
In this episode, a very lucky AshTan fan, Ursula, appeared on the show to have personal chat with her idols and with the hosts as well. Ursula delightfully shared that she has always admired the friendship that both Ashley and Tan had ever since PBB days, adding that she looks up to the positive attitude that AshTan exude in reaching their dreams. You can’t really deny that Ursula has long been a fan of the tandem, saying she considers AshTan as her inspiration in doing the things she wants to excel in. Moreover, Ursula shared that every time she feels unhappy and down, she just goes back to AshTan to keep her back on track again. Another quality that she appreciates from the young artists is how they treat her and the rest of their fans as friends and not just as “mere fans.”
That’s why the very lucky fan did not miss the chance to thank her idols for inspiring her and making her happy. When Ursula asked AshTan her question which was “What other word/s aside from real can you think of to describe AshTan?,” both Ashley and Tan agreed it’s “strong.” They both shared how strong they have been as individuals and how strong their friendship has been despite many things that may try to break it.
