071313-tuhog_main.jpgAs part of another quality maindie film, the cast of Skylight Films' Tuhog shared what gives them inspiration and happiness in their lives right now. Jake Cuenca, who plays bus driver Nato in the film, said he tries to prioritize his quality of life every day. “Ang motto ko sa buhay, I just live everyday like it's my last. Gagawin ko ang best ko regardless if it's work or with my family or with my friends. Para sa akin, I live everyday likes it's my last. Motto ko po yan, pinagdadasalan ko yan everyday. So para sa akin, kahit anong ginagawa ko, I do it to the best of my capabilities every day,” he admitted.

Enchong Dee and Empress, who play college sweethearts in Tuhog, also admitted to living life with positivity. “Life is short but unhappiness makes it shorter so I make sure na wala akong nakakabangga, wala akong nakakaaway, lagi akong masaya. Kasi hindi mo alam, the next thing you know, temporary rin kasi yung pagiging masaya mo eh. So kung may maliliit na bagay na puwede ka maging masaya, grab it,” Enchong explained. 20-year-old Empress also agreed with her leading man's sentiments. “Para sa akin, binabawasan ko lang yung mga negativity sa buhay at mag-focus lang sa positive, para mas masaya, mas worth it.”

One of the movie's veteran cast members Leo Martinez, who plays a retired government employee had this to say: “Ako'y matagal ng living life to the fullest, natatapos na nga sa palagay ko (laughs). Medyo senior citizen na ako kaya unang una yung father ko ang sabi sa amin nung bata kami, you choose a job you love you'll never have to work a day in your life. So labing dalawa kaming magkakapatid. Iba iba ang aming mga profession. Walang nag-gayahan sa amin ng profession. Yun din ang sinasabi ko sa mga anak ko at yun ang sinunod ko. Pumapasok ako kung saan ako enjoy at hindi ako nagtratrabaho. So alam niyo naman ang buhay ko, pa-enjoy enjoy na lang.

Eugene Domingo, who plays main character Fiesta, a barker for a public bus company who falls for Nato the driver, said she was able to appreciate life better after an accident on a set of her indie movie Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank in 2011. “May i-she-share lang ako nung na-aksidente ako, nung nahulog nga ako sa septic tank, na-ospital ako ng ilang araw tapos napanuod ko ang sarili ko sa TV, yung mga pelikulang pinapalabas nila na talon ako ng talon sa TV, tapos yung sitwasyon ko nun is nakahiga lang ako at na-paralyze ako ng ilang araw. Dun ko na-realize susmaryosep, ang sarap mabuhay, magtrabaho, magkaroon ng ginagawa araw-araw kasi isa lang ang buhay natin. Ayoko ng mag-focus sa kahinaan. Ayoko ng mag-focus sa pain, kung meron mang masakit sa buhay o nagbibigay ng kabigatan diyosko paalisin niyo, palayasin niyo and then pagsama-samahin niyo lang lahat ng masaya. Kung meron mang isang bagay na siguro na hindi natin puwedeng alisin sa buhay natin, yun ang enjoyment. At lahat ng senses natin sana ma-satisfy,” she said.

The Tuhog cast members were also unified in admitting that they pray religiously everyday. “Tuwing nakakakita ako ng simbahan nagdadasal ako. Basta may nakita akong krus, nag-a-Our Father ako, Hail Mary at saka Glory Be. All the time. Kada may madaan akong ospital, nagdadasal ako. Galing akong Opus Dei eh. Sa school ako nag-Opus Dei so I'm very religious and Katoliko nga ako so I pray as much as I can,” Jake admitted.

Former varsity athlete Enchong said he finds his prayer time during training. “Ako weird, every time na nasa tubig ako, dun ako nakakapagdasal. Seryoso yun ha, kapag nasa ilalim ako ng tubig, doon ako nagdadasal. Minsan kapag mag-isa ka lang, pipikit ka lang, wala kang makausap, Siya na lang makausap mo,” he said.

Eugene shared how she does her prayers.  “Mahilig akong mag-rosaryo. Rosaryo ako ng rosaryo. Ang una kong pinagdasal matapos ang shooting ng pelikula namin dahil ang hirap. So natapos naman,” she said.
