“There are different kinds of happiness in my life eh. Well the romantic one naman is waking up each day, looking at that certain text message with the text ‘Hi.’ Okay na ako dun, coming from jowa. Jowa talaga (laughs). Another thing that makes me happy, you know I realized kasi for Tiger crackers we made a video on how to do these snack hacks and I’m just so excited to upload them. For that certain video, it took a community, it took my family to make that certain video. That’s why it’s so special. Yung mga videos na nakalagay yung kamay dito, yung mga videos na magaganda na yun when you’re trying to cook something, what people don’t know is hinu-hug ko yung kapatid ko from behind tapos nag-ka-camera siya while I was preparing the food. And then my mom was looking at us preparing the different set ups. It’s really enjoying those moments with my family while seeing them and making me feel their support.” he said during the Tiger Crackers Kitchen Snack Hacks launch held earlier this month.

While doing home quarantine with his family, Robi also had a lot of time to reflect and learn more about himself and his views about his country. “Naging mas matured about things and siguro if I have to categorize all of my learnings, I learned to be more involved. Not just in my community pero in everything. Even in different spheres, there’s finances, there’s politics, ang dami eh.

“What I learned is you don’t have to be a politician to care about your country. You have to be a citizen and right now, we are forced to go into our houses to watch news on television and before we didn’t have that luxury of time kasi palagi akong kayod ng kayod, gipit na gipit kasi ako eh. Trabaho ng trabaho. But right now, binigyan tayo ng pause, sinabi sa iyo ito yung mga nangyayari sa buhay, it was not a great equalizer but it was a great magnifier of what’s happening right now. And the only thing na nakikita kong light dito is nakita ng buong tao, ng buong sambayanan and we should we could do and we should do something about it,” he explained.
