“Mag-dasal. Sobrang gasgas na gasgas na ‘to sa lahat ng tao pero malaki ang magagawa ng pagdadasal. Kailangan lang natin magtiwala na ang lahat ng ito ay matatapos din,” Louise Delos Reyes said to comfort Kapamilyas during these hard times.
Nowadays, while we are physically separated because of the pandemic, it is more important than ever that we find other ways to connect with other people. Louise did this through Kapamilya Confessions! She gave shout out to fans, offered advice, and answered questions during the livestream.
Being confined indoors for long periods of time has triggered many people’s anxiety. Louise knows this feeling and has managed to control her thoughts. “Ang kalaban mo lang talaga ‘yung sarili mo,” she said. The Kapamilya actress tries to keep a healthy mentality by frequently talking to her friends and family. She also visits only one reliable news source to avoid all the unnecessarily negative posts on the internet.
Some of the ways she keeps herself busy is by cooking. Louise surprised herself at how good she is when she tried baking for the first time. The dish she is most proud of is chicken parmesan. She is also on TikTok, although has not posted since March. Her favorite trend is the savage dance craze. Fun fact: based on these short videos, you might notice that she spends most of her time in the living room.
To avoid losing track of time, she has a strict bedtime. As soon as she wakes up, she cooks rice, makes coffee, and tend to her plants. This has been her routine, but she suggests trying something new or creative every week.
When the quarantine is over, she is excited to get back to work. Louise also looks forward to sunbathing on a beach and going for a swim in the ocean. Although, what she truly misses most is simple activities like walking the streets or going grocery shopping. “More than anything, more than ‘yung pag-travel, mas gusto ko lang na maging normal [‘yung mundo],” she said.
The Kapamilya star answered more questions and even gave some advice to couples in a long-distance relationship because of the quarantine. So, check out this episode of Kapamilya Confessions!
