It was in February 2018 when Liza Soberano sent out a tweet that launched a thousand memes. Don't remember? Let me refresh your memories: Liza and Enrique Gil were cast in the ABS-CBN fantasy series Bagani and the characters they were to portray were Pre-Colonial Filipinos. Thing is, both Liza and Enrique come from American and Spanish descent, respectively. It wasn't a surprise their casting sparked outrage online.
Liza tried to defend herself and her Filipino heritage by writing this now-deleted tweet: "And who says we're not Pinoy? My father is full Filipino. I was raised by two Filipinos since the age of four. I looooove sinigang. I think that's as Pinoy as Pinoy can get."
Naturally, this tweet went viral and the people of the internet were quick to make memes like this one:
Now, in 2019, the Kapamilya actress has fully embraced the meme by starring in this sinigang taste test challenge with Quen! "I'm Liza Soberano, and I love sinigang," she declares.
Liza is a true sinigang ~connoisseur~ having correctly guessed four out of the five kinds of sinigang. Who knew there were that many?!
Liza and Quen are starring in the upcoming film Alone/Together directed by Antoinette Jadaone. Alone/Together opens in cinemas nationwide on February 13, 2019.
