Peachy (Maris Racal) thought she landed a professional modeling gig when she met David (Dominic Roque) who introduced himself as a photographer. Instead, she found herself in a dangerous situation and even her brothers’ lives, Chico (JM De Guzman) and Beri (Kiko Estrada), were put in danger. If only she talked to her family first, before making any decisions.
This is only one of the lessons that Pamilya Ko has taught its viewers. Social media has its benefits, but it can also have consequences. “Don’t make it na ‘yun ‘yung buhay mo,” Maris further advised on Kapamilya Chat. Nowadays, the saying “stranger danger” applies to the internet as well. “Post at your own risk,” she added.
Maris believes that one way of avoiding such situations is by maintaining communications among family members. Opening up is hard for some people, but we can also talk to siblings or friends, if not to the parents. These are the people you can rely on to help, support or just be there because that is what trust is all about. “Kasi ‘pag nawawalan na ng communication, feeling mo okay lang ‘yung ginagawa mo pero hindi pala,” she explained.
After everything that has happened on Pamilya Ko, Peachy has certainly learned a lot. She has grown cautious when it comes to social media. Unfortunately, there are still secrets within their family that has yet to be uncovered. As a unit of 10, they all have their own stories. Maris does not want to spoil their viewers, but one secret she is willing to reveal about their family is that, “sobrang bulol kaming lahat.” Their set is usually filled with laughter, even during heavy scenes, “ang tagal matapos kasi mabubulol ‘yung isa, mabubulol ‘yung isa, magtatawanan lahat.” It seems they have truly become a family even when the cameras as turned off.
