As one of the lead stars of the new digital rom-com series Pasabuy, Heaven Peralejo revealed her experience working with their director Xian Lim.

“Sobrang the best niya na director in a sense na binibigyan ka niya ng freedom and ng time. Pero ang akin lang din, siguro ang ma-she-share ko lang is kung paano niya inaalagaan yung mga crew niya, yung staff niya. Every night, as in gumagawa siya ng way para lang din matapos yung gabi ng maayos at ng masaya. So sa gabi meron kaming ginagawa para lang din sa sanity ng lahat I guess (laughs),” she shared.

In the latest six-episode WeTV digital series, Heaven and her new leading man Gino Roque play two strangers who find themselves at the same resort just before the lockdown. Gino plays the role of John, an aspiring musician trying to heal from a recent heartbreak while Heaven brings to life the character of Anna, a popular vlogger working on her latest video who is also hiding her true feelings for her manager. The two strangers first meet online via a virtual community for pasabuy orders. In real life, Heaven reveals she is not a big online shopper, even before the pandemic hit.

“Wala ako masyado binibili kasi nga siguro ano ako, kuripot ako. At saka mas na-appreciate ko yung isang bagay with time or effort, mas na-appreciate ko yung mga bagay na ganun. So ang pinakamahal ko siguro na pinasabuy is coffee. Kasi nakakalimang coffee ako in a day tapos yung coffee ko na yun, yung isang coffee yung pinakamalaki sa Starbucks. Siguro in the future kung may ipapabili man ako, pag siguro nagawa ko na lahat, pag nabili ko na lahat ng needed at meron pa akong budget para sa wants ko. Kasi yung mom ko tinuturuan niya ako pagdating sa financial things,” she explained.

The 21-year-old actress, also shared why she has chosen to be frugal when it comes to her spending habits.

“Pag bumibili kasi ako sobrang madalang lang talaga eh kahit may pera or kahit wala. Kasi iniisip ko yung future ko na kesa bumili ako ng mga mamahaling bagay, sana nakaipon ako para sa bahay. So yun lang yung thinking ko na ngayon muna ako magkukuripot at magtitipid para sa future ko na hanggang pang apo na yun, mga ganun (laughs),” she adds.
