Melissa Ricks wants to give back to the important people in her life


Melissa Ricks told ABS-CBN.com how thankful she is for all the improvements in her career and for all the blessings 2009 has brought her. “Hindi ko talaga inasahan sobrang this year sunod-sunod mga projects ko wala akong pahinga. Kung meron man, two weeks lang then may panibago na naman, so habang may chance at may pagkakataon tinatanggap ko ng tinatanggap ‘yung mga binibigay sa akin,” said Melissa.

One of the things that Melissa is excited about this Christmas is that it is the season of gift-giving. She admits that she is the type who does not spend much on gifts, but this time she saved up money to allot valuable gifts to the important people in her life. “Ako hindi ako mapala-bigay sa regalo, nagbibigay ako pero hindi bongga. Pero this year I made it a point na mga taong importante sa akin bibigyan mo ng regalo binibigyan din naman nila ako ng regalo so pasalamat lang. Like meron akong pinag-ipunan, binigay ko sa isang friend ko, isang watch na Sunto.”

And if she will be making her own wish list, one of the things she will mention is a posh bag. “Ang gusto ko maka-receive ng mga branded bags kasi hindi talaga ko mahilig dati pero siguro dumating na ‘yung time na gusto ko na makatanggap or regaluhan ‘yung sarili ko ng something I worked hard for.”

When it comes to non-material things, she prays that she will be given a chance to do more mature roles next year. “Kung this year was a good year for me, siguro I wish for 2010 to be a better year, mas gagalingan ko ‘yung craft ko, sana mas dumami ‘yung projects ko and lumaki na rin ‘yung roles na ibibigay sa akin. Kagaya ng…. I don’t have a movie yet, ‘yung ganun, pero hindi naman solo movie agad. Basta more chances and more exposure lang. With movies, I would like to start-off with light romantic comedy, ganun ganun muna, huwag muna drama kasi it is your first movie, mangangapa ka pa, e. Something light muna kasi dun naman nags-start lahat sa mga light roles. Gusto ko maka-partner siyempre si Matt (Evans), and yung mga kaibigan ko sila Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson, (si Jake Cuenca) pwede rin, why not?”
