Actress and vlogger Ivana Alawi is making it known that she is indeed a strong woman, revealing that she is now easily able to move on from a failed romance.
Alawi said she is a far cry from what she used to be as far as moving on is concerned.
“Marami akong pina-priority, family ko, trabaho ko, mga vlogs and teleserye. Mabilis naman akong mag-move on kasi dati, in my teenage years, nandoon lang ako sa bahay, umiiyak,” she said at the roundtable discussion for “A Family Affair”last June 15.
(I prioritize many things: my family, my work, my vlog and teleserye. I move on fast now because before, in my teenage years, I used to just stay in the house, crying.)
When asked what advice she could give cheaters, she said, “Magbago na kayo kasi masarap magmahal ng isa lang (Change your ways, because it feels good to just love one person). Life is short.”
Alawi admitted she was cheated on many times and she learned from these experiences. She has learned to let go no matter how much she loved the person.
Meanwhile, Alawi admitted that she gained weight during the pandemic because all she did was eat and sleep. Then came the lock-in taping for “A Family Affair” when her co-star and leading man Sam Milby asked her to join hiking, Alawi obliged, only to be sorry later.
“Grabe ‘yung lakad na iyon, five hours. So, nakita naman sa picture ‘yung mukha ko (na nakasimangot). Hindi ko na kaya, grabe. First time ko maglakad ng five hours pero masaya na kasama ko sila,” she said.
(That walk was something, five hours. So, it can be seen in the photo, my face, I was frowning. I could no longer take it, but it was great. It’s my first time to walk for five hours but I am happy I was with them.)
Directed by Jerome Pobocan and Raymond Ocampo, the TV series premiered first on the iWantTFC app 48 hours before its TV broadcast last June 25. It starts its broadcast premiere today, June 27 on the Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z, Jeepney TV, TFC IPTV and TV5. JB
