One of the most loved squads in showbiz is the Nguya Squad composed of Daniel Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo, Sofia Andres, Ria Atayde, Marco Gumabao and their other friends. Since Daniel is considered one of the most successful in the group, his buddies are often asked if they feel envious of him. Marco answered that question in a past TWBA episode.
Marco said he never felt insecure. In fact, he’s even proud of Daniel’s success. “Hindi po uso sa akin ‘yung inggit, eh. I’m super happy for him. As a friend, mas nagiging happy lang ako para sa kanya para sa mga naa-achieve niya,” he told veteran host Boy Abunda.
Envy is not part of his system, knowing that it could kill friendships. “For me, once you put envy sa isip, that’s when your friendship starts to crumble. You would say, ‘I’m better than this guy. Kaya ko rin gawin ‘yung mga ginagawa niya,’ which is very negative.”
Asked what made them click, Marco said he and Daniel are both fun loving. Basketball also keeps them bonded, as well as chilling at home. But even if they share a lot in common, they have different tastes when it comes to women. Marco likes mestiza girls while Daniel, obviously, was smitten by a lovely morena.
