Brazil holds a special place in Bianca Manalo's heart after spending a month with boyfriend Fabio Ide and his family in the South American country last December. The actress lauded the hospitality of her boyfriend's family.
“Super fun, very Filipino. Lahat sila meat eater, steak eater [pero] kinakain ko lang chicken and fish so pag nagluluto ng manok sa akin isang kilong manok. So talagang minake sure nila na inalagaan nila ako ng mabuti,” she said.
This time, she has been returning the favor as Fabio's mom is currently in the Philippines “'Yung mommy nandito, supposedly 'yung daddy susunod pero biglang di natuloy, basta naging, busy sa Brazil kaya di na siya biglang natuloy, sayang nga eh,” she shared.
Asked by the press if Fabio's parents approve of her, she coyly replied, “Siguro naman, siyempre nakisama din naman ako kahit papano, isang buwan 'yun.” She added that her relationship with Fabio is going strong.
Meanwhile, when it comes to her professional life, Bianca is still on a break after previously starring in two consecutive shows in ABS-CBN. “We are still waiting kasi siyempre nag-dalawang sunod ako na serye sa ABS so hindi naman pwedeng ako na lang ulit. Kailangan give chance to others naman so siyempre I am still waiting, praying din at the same time pero sabi nila may pinitch na daw so we will just wait.”
Now that it is pageant season again, the beauty queen turned actress shared some tips to aspiring Bb. Pilipinas candidates. “Siyempre have fun and be natural. It’s a once and a lifetime opportunity. Pagnapunta sa iyo ang korona, galingan mo dahil nakasalalay sa’yo ang pangalan ng Pilipinas,” she stated.
