As part of the popular family drama Bagong Umaga, Barbie Imperial revealed during the show’s finale presscon that she was one of the cast members who tested positive for COVID-19. The 22-year-old actress explained why she never posted about her health while recuperating at home.

“I also tested positive for COVID pero I chose not to post it na lang kasi parating throwback yung pino-post ko na mga photos or videos sa story ko and baka malito yung mga tao na nakasama ko kung kelan ba talaga yun and baka isipin nila na kasama ko sila nung day na yun eh hindi naman talaga. Wala naman akong balak kasi parang ako, every time I post on my Instagram hindi siya real time. After ng lock in, umuwi na lang ako. Pinili ko na lang na huwag na lang mag-post since wala naman akong naka-contact na ibang tao. Pamilya ko lang,” she said.

After her experience, Barbie shared that she now has a greater appreciation for spending time bonding with her family at home.

 

 

“Siguro yung na-realize ko kung gaano ka-importante sobra yung oras. Kasi siyempre pag pumupunta ako ng taping hindi ko kasama yung pamilya ko. Sobrang palagi ko silang na-mi-miss. Eh dati kapag nasa bahay lang ako nung wala pang pandemic, parang palagi akong nasa labas, palagi akong umaalis. And then nung nangyari yung pandemic sana pala nag-spend ako ng mas maraming time with my family nung kaya pa,” she said.

As the series Bagong Umaga nears its finale, Barbie said she has no regrets because she is thankful for the opportunity to work even during a pandemic.

“Sobrang saya ko. Ang blessed ng feeling, ang gaan kasi siyempre madami sa atin yung nawawalan ng trabaho and ang saya isa pa rin ako dun sa mga artista na nabibigyan ng chance na makapagtrabaho,” she added.
