Beauty, brains and heart, what more does Jessy Mendiola need? The best part is that these qualities have always been part of who she is, even when she was a little girl.
During her guesting on Tonight with Boy Abunda, Jessy recounted her reunion with her older sister Pamela Martinez after not seeing each other for five years. That alone is enough to make the trip to Okinawa, Japan memorable. But the fact that Luis Manzano tagged along made it even more special. To no one’s surprise, Pam and Luis got along perfectly well and Jessy could not be any happier.
“Sobrang masaya siya for me kasi huli naming pagkikita, five years ago, ‘yun ‘yung depressed ako,” the actress admitted. Fortunately, with their overdue bonding moment, Pamela got the chance to witness Jessy be with someone who makes her feel loved.

All of this talk about meeting her sister again must have brought back memories of their childhood. Lucky for fans, Jessy’s Instagram is filled with throwbacks. She revealed that she and her sister would share one birthday cake and party to save up. “Nagaagawan tayo lagi kung sino mag-blow ng candles sa cake,” she wrote in the caption. In another post, she also talked what their favorite past time was, “we used to play and eat cheese balls all day long when we were kids.”
Aside from reminiscing about their sisterhood, Jessy also shared a number of her own photos. “Dati ko pa kaya gusto magmadre?” she wondered in the captions of one of them. That is an unexpected profession, considering her line of work now.
