Hi to all SimplySxy readers. I’m Jelly. I was a radio DJ and TV host in the Philippines. I moved here to Toronto 4 years ago and now I am a DJ for Wish USA. Broadcasting remotely, of course, every weekend, my show there is called “Saturday Night with Jellykiss”. I also have a YouTube channel called “The Jellykiss Show” which showcases diverse talents here in Toronto and around the world and some travel vlogs, too, if I’m lucky!
What inspires your fashion style and where do you love to shop from?
I love dressing up! I love fashion! It’s one of my favourite ways of expressing my creativity. It’s just very flexible, no rules, no limitations…just like me! 🙂
I’m a fan of mixing and matching timeless pieces with today’s fashion. I don’t have a fashion icon but I take my fashion cues from pretty much everywhere. Favourite TV shows, musicians, runways, movies, influencers, TikTokers, K-pop, my mom… I take it all in and bring my own twist to it.
For unique and timeless pieces, I would go thrifting sometimes and buy from local stores. And to keep an updated wardrobe, you can never go wrong with Zara and H&M. They have pieces that can make you look fabulous without breaking the bank.
How did you get started into being a DJ?
I actually started as a newscaster back in 2008 (whew! that was a loooong time ago! LOL!). Then I became a DJ a year later for the same radio station. I was known as DJ Alex then and for the next 6 years.
In 2014, I had the most humbling opportunity to be a one of the pioneer DJs for WISH 107.5 in Manila – the most innovative radio station in the Philippines. Through the Wish Bus, I was able to travel to different places on the metro and in some nearby provinces. Bringing music and world-class entertainment closer to them and at the same time, giving Original Filipino Music to shine once again.
Can you tell us more about The Jellykiss Show and what content you provide?
My main goal for the Jellykiss Show is to showcase cultural diversity. It’s just a sad reality that we have to face a pandemic right now but before Covid, I was in the process of collaborating with my friends from different ethnicities to get to know their culture and give them a platform. I would love to continue doing that when it is safe again for everyone.
For now I am able to showcase my own culture, the Filipino culture, through music, food, language, events and a lot more.
Sometimes, I incorporate travel vlogs too, as it is one of my most favourite things to do on earth and I love how it is still in line with my goal to familiarize myself with different cultures – see what’s out there from my very own eyes.
What have you always wanted to do or learn but have yet to find the time for it?
Probably learning a new language. French and Korean. And some dance lessons, too. I’ve always wanted to do that for a very long time now.
Have you been in an embarrassing situation before that is funny now when looking back?
Oh, happened to me a lot of times already. Especially when you’re live on-air, things happen. Next thing you know, you’re telling it at your next dinner party and everyone loves it!
One time, while on-air, my throat dried-up and got really itchy and every nerve in my body wanted to let a big cough out and the more I suppressed it, the more it wanted out. And it happened. I had to turn my mic off even though I didn’t want to go off the air. Luckily my guest was kind and clever enough to improv as a DJ for me right at that moment.
Went on a commercial break. We and the rest of the team laughed our hearts out, while I’m still coughing and almost at tears.
Would you rather be able to play every musical instrument or master every type of sport?
I’d probably go with sports. As much as I grew-up with music and loving it, making it part of my life, sports is something I have always wanted to be good but never had a chance to.
What do you not get about guys?
Oh, guys are easy. I know them inside out. *wink*
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Jelly. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Humor, honesty and happiness. That’s “sexy”.
