The Mabunga family is back for “Pamilya Kowentuhan” to join the Online Kapamilya Shows (OKS) line-up. Now, PiCo had a virtual reunion on Kapamilya Confessions to reconnect and answer fans’ questions!
JM de Guzman and Alyssa Muhlach revealed that the best moments on Pamilya Ko was whenever food is involved. It was during breaktimes that the cast got to bond by eating together. There was also the time they shot scenes in Binondo for Pia (Muhlach) and Chico’s (De Guzman) date. Of course, they ended up eating a lot of food.
On the topic of first impressions, JM described her as respectable. “Parang may ganoon siyang aura na ‘Subukan mo, sasapakin kita,’” he added. Meanwhile, Alyssa already knew him from his previous shows and movies. Considering his level of fame, she was surprised to discover how truly humble he was. Although, he is not the type to easily open up. “Kailangan lang makuha ‘yung kiliti mo bago ka maging honest,” she said.
When asked about their experience during this pandemic, JM compared the situation to racing, “Ang bilis-bilis nung karera tapos biglang kailangan mo magpalit ng gulong.” The community quarantine caught him off guard and it took him a while to adjust. So, he chose to focus on preparing himself for when life outside his house resumes.
As for Alyssa, being stuck at home renewed her love and appreciate for family. Typically, they have their own busy lives and not usually in the house all together. But now, they are constantly bonding. When it is safe to travel, she is planning a beach vacation.
“Now talaga mas na-appreciate mo ‘yung life itself like breathing,” Alyssa continued. JM is most grateful for simply waking up in the morning. Because of how serious COVID-19 is, being healthy and surviving the pandemic is already a big deal.
Together they advised the youth to remain passionate, especially during these difficult times. As artists with massive platforms, they have to be open to change that will continuously better themselves. “Always do things that matter,” the Kapamilya actress stated. Doing something from the heart will lead to happiness. Hopefully, this healthy attitude would influence others to also make the right decisions in life.
