As someone who has been part of showbiz for decades, Jolina Magdangal has seen it all. She is an icon of the 90s. Today, she is one of the most loved celebrities. On top of this, Jolina gets to share all her knowledge and experience on Magandang Buhay. So, during her visit on Kapamilya Chat, we wanted her to try the Past vs Present Challenge!
The trends in music have drastically changed over the years, but Jolina will always prefer classic OPM songs over EDM and other electronic music genres. The momshie even has a playlist titled “senti Jolina”. She enjoys listening to songs that remind her of those good ol’ high school and college days. There was also a time when she worked with director Wenn V. Deramas and used music to control her emotions for a scene. “Thankful ako na naranasan ko ‘yun sa kanya, sobrang laking tulong,” she recalled.
Jolina also prefers the old school way of courting over the modern styles. Personally visiting someone’s home and meeting the parents will always be more sincere than texts or direct messages. “Kung ano pang mga susunod na era na maaabutan na ng mga anak ko, papupuntahin ko pa rin sa bahay,” she added.
On the other hand, the Magandang Buhay host cannot deny that modern technology has its own conveniences. For instance, she feels that it is easier to take photos of her kids because newer cameras can capture movement. Although, she still loves the nostalgic charms of film cameras. “Medyo mahilig talaga ako sa mga lumang gamit,” she admitted.
Jolina also chose between old school and modern fashion styles as well as larong kayle and computer games. Watch this video to find out her pick!
Jolina returns to acting as she stars in MMK almost 20 years after her last lead role in the drama anthology this Saturday (July 6).
