Bela went on to share that her desire to play again was furthered bolstered when Zanjoe brought a ukulele to the set.
“And so Tsong he was playing really well. And he was telling me ‘why don’t you play this song?’” she shared.
With that the press asked, is Zanjoe her sunshine?
“Hindi. Hindi ba pwedeng fans? Hindi ba pwedeng friends? Hindi naman. Wala naman,” she said.
According to Bela she is not yet ready to fall in love. The Kapamilya actress confirmed her split with her businessman boyfriend Neil Arce just a couple of weeks ago.
"Parang hindi pa, not yet," she said, adding, "I'm really enjoying my work."
Bela claimed that she’s still very much busy with work.
"'Di ako natutulog, parang every day kaming either taping or shooting. So maybe I would like to have a little me time first or alone time before I get into that," she explained.
When prodded about how her “working relationship” with Zanjoe has improved, Bela said, "Friends, working relationship. Nothing to tell, we are just friends.”
The Camp Sawi star maintained that she’s “okay” after her split.
Bela is currently working with Neil on her upcoming film Luck at First Sight together with Jericho Rosales.
