Empress wants to have a better physique now that shes turning 18


Empress, who turns 18 on February 19, has a few wishes for her birthday. "I wish for more projects, endorsements, mas maraming trabaho. Sana mas gumanda pa 'lsquo;yung career ko. Wish ko rin na sana magkaroon ako ng time para maituloy ko 'lsquo;yung pagaaral ko and makatapos ako. Sana mabiyayaan ng good health kami ng family ko. Sana magkasama pa kami nang matagal, maging masaya kami lahat."

Before reaching drama princess status via the title role in the teleserye Rosalka, Empress honed her acting skills since the age of seven. Even though she started in the business at a very young age, Empress said she never felt she missed out on a lot of things. "Normal pa rin naman 'lsquo;yung naging childhood ko. Dati naman hindi ako ganito ka busy, na tuloy tuloy ang projects ko. Dati nakakapag regular school naman ako. Kapag wala naman school and work nakakalabas ako, naglalaro kasama 'lsquo;yung mga friends ko. Nakakapasyal din ako kasama 'lsquo;yung family ko. Maganda ang childhood ko kaya sobrang thankful ko."

Now that she'rsquo;s turning 18, Empress plans on staying away from teenybopper roles so she can mature as an actress. But aside from this, she also wants to improve her physique in line with this. "Dalaga na ako so maganda kung fit ako sa hitsura ko. Gusto ko rin na may mabago sa akin ngayong hindi na ako bata. Feeling ko konting weight pa ang kailangan kong i-lose."

She went on to share how she managed to have a slimmer body after doing Rosalka. "Strict diet and work out talaga ang ginawa ko. May sarili akong trainer. After Rosalka kasi binigyan ako ng one month na gawin lahat ng gusto ko, like bakasyon or what. Pinili kong magpapayat. Everyday akong nasa gym, minsan hinahaluan ko rin ng swimming. Sa diet ko wala na akong rice, pork, mga oily food. Karamihan ng kinakain ko mga pinakuluan lang. Dati may sarili akong food. Pero ngayon okay na akong tumikim ng kahit ano."

Another thing Empress is looking forward to about turning 18 is driving her own car. "Gusto ko sana magkaroon na ng sarili kong kotse ngayon na nakuha ko na 'lsquo;yung driver'rsquo;s license ko. Sabay kami ni Erich (Gonzales) kumuha. Gusto ko sana ng sports car. Alam ko mahal siya kaya pagiipunan ko talaga."
