For Tony, it’s gratitude that he learned from the pandemic. He realized that health is really wealth and that he needed to take care of himself and of his family more.

They also shared the differences and similarities between themselves and the characters they portray in the series. Heaven said that there are actually more similarities than differences between her and Tisay. For instance, she always considers her family in every decision that she chooses. When it comes to Kiko and his character Otep, he said that one similarity is his being a mama’s boy and one difference is that in real life, he can’t do the things that Otep did which got other people in a bad situation. For Barbie, she and her character Cai have actually more differences than similarities. Unlike Cai, Barbie doesn’t really cry during bad situations and most of the time, she doesn’t show people that she gets weak. Also, Barbie is very close to her mom unlike Cai. Lastly, she doesn’t get to a point where she needs to pull other people down just so she can get what she wants. Meanwhile, Tony shared that he sometimes finds his character Ely “corny.” But he admires his love for his family and friends. Lastly, Michelle shared that her similarity with Angge is their love for their family and friends.
