When asked how fluent she is in the language, she answered, “Dati mas fluent, ngayon mas mahirap kasi walang practice. Dati nakatira [ako] sa Manila, so maraming practice kasi maraming Pilipino diba? Ngayon, medyo mahirap pero kaya pa.” She also shared that her favorite Filipino desserts are Leche Flan and Halo-Halo. So cute!
