Note: The following questions were asked in May 2015. I am trying to clear my back log before I open up my question box again!

Q: Hi Saab! I super love you. :) What do you do when you’re feeling down?
A: Hi!! I love you too kung sino ka man hehe.. I watch The Office or any other light comedy show. Then I take a nap.

Q: Hi, Saab! :) What are your thoughts about Maxx being one of the celebrity performers at YFSF? Aren’t you going to go to the studio & watch her perform
A: Oh wow, these questions ARE old. Haha! No, I wasn’t able to watch her perform in the studio because my schedule didn’t permit it but I made sure to watch the finale at Resorts World :) It was so nice seeing her do her thing. She really enjoys making people laugh!!

Q: Hi Saab! Nag acting workshop ka ba before?hindi ka talaga shy mag act sa harap ng madaming tao? Dream ko maging artista but i’m super shy.love yah
A: I’ve had a couple of acting workshops with GMA7 in the past. I’m okay to act in front of a camera but somehow if there’s a live audience I get really nervous. It’s something I’m working on, I think being a part of No Filter was a big step towards the right direction. I was a girl with stage fright thrown into a sea of theatre critics and I’m not dead. Hurrah!

Q: Any tips po kung paano mawala ang pagiging mahiyain? Thank you so much
A: You will really need to talk to more people. Kahit sa bahay, talk to your family and try to be genuinely interested in what they’re saying. Asking questions will make you more comfortable and you won’t feel like you’re being interrogated and it’ll bring your guard down. I’m no expert though so don’t take my word for it. Haha!! I’m VERY shy. Trying to be more approachable!

Q: how old are you?
A: 26

Q: hi ate saab, I saw in your blog that you’re upgrading your camera? Can you make a giveaway for your old one?
A: Aww, man, sorry! My friend already bought it from me!

Q: Hi Saab! I was at Miriam with you ages ago, classmate ko si Maxene. Anyway, what is your advice to girls who want to write on the side?
A: Oh cool! Hi, former school mate!!:) My advice is to just do it!!! Keep writing. Build your portfolio and apply to all the magazines and blogs you know! Build your resume by writing pro bono and when you’ve got a lot of publications under your belt, then you can ask for a fee for your services! If you don’t exactly want to monetize writing, then just start a blog or a journal :)

Q: Is Jim ok with you smoking?
A: He doesn’t love it but he doesn’t stop me. I actually don’t smoke anymore so it’s not a biggie.

Q: Hi Saab! Please do a How to make a blog tutorial because I’ve been dying to create one but don’t know where to start! And you
A: Oh myyyyyy like in what aspect? Layouts? I just learned everything on my own so I’m sure you can find the right tools online!! I’m not an expert!!:))

Q: Heyow beautiful saab! Do you get paid for this blog? or you pay for this online blog? i’m super curious because I wanna have my own too..
A: I have some sponsored posts from time to time and yes, I do pay for my URL and hosting. There are other options if you don’t want to pay! There’s Tumblr, WordPress.com, Blogspot, etc.

Q: Where did you get your dining table?
A: Mandaue Foam

Q: What’s your hair color?love the one where you were wearing the red WW shirt.
A: Ash Blonde. Ask your salon for Matrix (that’s the brand) Ash Blonde.

Q: Is it rude to block someone from your phone? For example, yung annoying bank reps na nag-ooffer ng credit cards. Nakokonsensya kasi ako minsan, Haha
A: Bakit ka nakokonsensya??? Ninakaw nila yung number mo sa kung saan man!! SILA ANG MA-KONSENSYA!!!! BLOCK!!!!!!

Q: jsut want to ask anong gusto mong maging gender ng first baby nyo ni jim in the future, girl or boy? :) just curious.
A: Girl but only because I think I’ll be the type of mom to hate all girls that my future son will date. Kawawa naman siya.

Q: Hi Saab! What can you say about an ex of your boyfriend na nakikipagfriend sayo after niyo magkaroon ng mga conflicts with each other? Thanks!
A: Okay lang, be nice to her but don’t be close friends na. Unless you really can’t help it and you have so many things in common and you really like each other. Otherwise, wag niyo nang pilitin. What’s the point?

Q: Hi Saab! Can you make a post a little background about your band and its members? :)
A: Oooh okay :)

Q: how did you quit smoking?
A: Stop smoking. Appreciate how much easier it is to breath. How much fresher your breath is. How much your throat doesn’t hurt. I didn’t want to go back anymore. Admittedly, I’d have a stick or two when having drinks with friends but it’s not like before na I’d smoke almost a pack a day. BLECH.
