Vina Morales admits she is impressed working with Jane Oineza and Jerome Ponce.
With her Kapamilya series Nasaan
Ka Nang Kailangan Kita airing its finale episode last October 17, Vina
Morales said she was happy to be part of such a successful soap. "We’re
doing great. We were lucky that we were able to reach nine months, naka-ilang seasons pa kami, Yung iba one
season lang di ba? So talagang I consider us lucky at nagpapasalamat kami sa
lahat ng mga nagaabang at nanuod sa amin almost every weekday. Nakakalungkot
kasi mahal mo na rin yung pamilya mo dun, yung mga nakakatrabaho mong cast and
the staff. Madami kaming nagawang nakabang abang na eksena hanggang sa huling
episode. Nakaka-miss talaga but siyempre we should be thankful na rin kasi nine
months din yun in the making,” she admitted.
Having worked with promising young stars Jane Oineza and Jerome
Ponce in Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita for
most of the year, Vina said she was impressed with their work ethics this year
in their careers. "Actually they’re very professional and makikita mo naman na they love what they
do. Of course their rapport is there on and off camera, ganyan. I don’t know if they’re very open about their love life but
sa nakikita ko naman they really get
along well on and off camera. And I’m happy for them,” she shared.
As a single mom, Vina said she misses her sexier physique before
she gave birth to daughter Ceanna. "I miss my abs (laughs). I still have
it but siyempre of course I have
Ceanna now but I want it back. Madali
lang naman sa akin kasi once na pag andiyan naman yung muscle mo madali na lang
ibalik yun. But I also take care of what I eat. I always check what I eat.
Tinitingnan ko talaga kung ano yung kinakain ko. I think it’s also exercise.
Conscious ako in a way since yung trabaho namin you have to look good. When
you’re on TV it adds ten pounds. So kung ano man yung nakikita nila and
siyempre gusto ko rin naman yung trabaho ko so I know I really have to take
care of myself,” she explained.
Apart from sticking to a healthy diet, Vina said her family salon
business is also going strong. The 39-year-old Kapamilya artist saidshe is
thankful to her sisters for allowing her to juggle her acting and singing
career with a flourishing business. "And of course Ystilo salon is there
to take care of myself when it comes to the pampering side. It’s our 17th year
anniversary this year so all in all mga
30 branches na kami and we’re opening more branches next year. I manage it
with my sister Sheila she’s my partner and my sisters Shaina and Sheryl,” she
Vina said she is also thankful she has a very understanding
daughter in six-year-old Ceanna. "She sees me naman pag nag-da-diet ako. Nag-de-delivery food ako. She says, ‘Mom
are you just going to eat that?’ or parang,
‘Where are you going Mom?’ and I say, ‘I’m going to Gold’s gym, do you want to
go?’ She goes with me, ganun. So she knows healthy living kami,” she said.
