Jessy Mendiola recently released another vlog that featured her visit to her sister Pam in Okinawa, Japan. Unlike her previous post, this one is more intimate for she and her sister talked about their past struggles as a family and also how everything turned out to be okay in the end.

Jessy and Pam were not able to see each other for five years because the actress is based in the Philippines while Pam went with their Lebanese father and stayed in Bahrain to work. There, she also found her husband Richard and they settled in Texas, USA.
It was only when the couple moved to Japan that she and Jessy got to bond again. When asked if anything changed between them, Pam said, “Hindi naman nagbago. Oo naman [na-miss kita].”
Pam has managed to raise their daughter Jasmine alone most of the time since her husband often goes to service. She then gave an advice to Jessy who could also be a mother soon.
“It was very hard ‘cause he has to leave for the ship. Binagyo kami and everything I thought I could not make it on my own but I did and I feel like once you’re there in that situation, I’m very sure 100% sure na kaya mo ‘yun.”
She also said that she likes Luis Manzano for Jessy and that the Minute to Win It host has been a good influence to her sister.
“Nakikita ko naman na maalaga si Luis and parang good naman yung combination niyo,” she said.
Jessy admitted that she’s the “pessimist and nega” in the family but Pam noticed that she got calmer now.
“Mas kalmado ka ngayon. ‘Yun nga ‘yung napansin ko mas kalmado ka ngayon, mas nag-mature ka,” Pam told Jessy.
“Now you’re like more calm, mature, composed.”
Jessy couldn’t help but get emotional since she feels like “everything is falling into place” now.
Recalling their past struggles, Jessy recalled, “Guys alam niyo bang 20 pesos lang ang baon namin araw-araw dati.”
“Alam mo bang nag survive kami sa cup noodles lang noon, naalala mo ba yun?” Pam asked Jessy.
“Palaging cup noodles yung pagkain namin tapos nag-aagawan pa tayo,” Jessy recalled.
“Ang layo na ng difference ng buhay natin ngayon saka before. Ito ‘yung proof na everything will turn out well” Jessy said.
