In this episode of Cosmopolitan Philippines' My Childhood With Cosmo series, actress and TV host Isabel Oli talks about what it was like growing up as the youngest of seven siblings. Together with her three brothers and three sisters, Isabel would alternate between studying, playing, and sleeping everyday, describing her childhood as "kagulo...in a good way."
Isabel shared special anecdotes, like her favorite childhood memories (Christmas still gives her butterflies, "'yon talaga yung time din kasi na kumpleto din kami") to how her parents dealt with challenges without affecting their childrens' mindset ("feeling ko talaga ang yaman namin nung bata pa kami"). Isabel also mentioned that when she and John were dating, she wasn't allowed to go out of town with him alone—even when she was the breadwinner for a time! Growing up, she didn't appreciate the strictness, but looking back she is thankful: "Iwas mga heartbreaks!"
