I am a content creator in the Philippines for two years now but I am also striving to be my own girl boss too.
I am obsessed with coffee a lot and prefer heartfelt conversations more than ever.
How is your fashion style like and where do you draw your fashion inspiration from?
When it comes to my fashion style, I don’t want to limit it by labeling it as ‘something’ because my style mostly depends on my mood, music or even the movie I watched. I don’t like limiting myself to certain pieces only — I always like to explore and try different things. I mean, I have one of those days that you will see me acting all princess’y but also acts like a bad b*tch the next day.
For my fashion inspo, just like what I mentioned earlier, it depends on the music that I listen to on a daily basis. If I am listening to R&B, expect that I come to look edgy on that day. But once I play my La Mer, Moon River, Ou Est Ma Tete?, Bistro Fada, La vie en rose etc, expect that I came to act like I am Emily from Emily in Paris that day.
I also have individuals which I look up to when it comes to style, I like Ericka Villongco’s style so much, Koleen Diaz, Rihanna and Hailey Bieber.
Which is the best compliment you have received?
That I am smart. The common misconception of people about me is that I am all about my looks – yes, I care about how I look BUT I am not all about that. Behind the makeup is a competitive career woman, I would rather supply myself with all the knowledge or wisdom I can get than supply myself with all the expensive makeup products (THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE BRANDS WHO TRUST ME, I DON’T BUY MAKEUP ANYMORE!) I own more books than makeup, that’s a fact.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a foodie are you?
Probably, 7. There are days wherein I feel like I can eat whatever I like but I also have those days wherein I only eat when I am really hungry. To be honest, I had an eating disorder because of some personal reason before and it caused so much impact in my life.
I am coping up, I workout and try to eat as often as I can. THANKS TO MY BEST FRIEND AND FAMILY!!!
Is there a city or country you’ve always liked to travel to for a holiday?
I like traveling, I like being in different places and discovering or adapting to different cultures. Locally, I would love to be in Siargao — the vibe, the people, the food, the beach everything. Internationally, there are so many countries I’d love to spend different holidays with like for Christmas, I’d love to be in the USA.
On my 24th birthday, I would love to spend it in Korea (hoping Covid is gone), for summer I’d love to be in Bali but if my future person is reading this I’d love him to propose in the city where we will meet. Just kidding, but that’s a hint! Haha.
Would you rather be able to control fire or water?
I am a fire sign – Aries. Constructively speaking, water has many uses and fire is known to be destructive. That is what I like about fire, everyone thinks so badly of it but if you think deeply, If you can control your own fire — you can give light to others, warmth on their coldest days, guide on their darkest paths. I like controlling my own fire, raging but at the same time I can remain untouchable.
If you could time travel, what will you like to witness or experience?
If I can go back time, I would love to revisit the moments that my grandmother is still alive. I am a Lola’s girl and losing her was the hardest moment of my life. I just want to feel her hugs, forehead kisses, hearing her laugh and her old stories again.
Another moment I’d like to revisit is probably the life pre-covid, how I wish the present looks like it.
Does chivalry still exist today?
Actually it is a very sensitive topic given the fact that many people like to read more between the lines nowadays. The word ‘chivalry’ can sound sexist because for some people, it is an act that depicts women to be weaker compared to men.
I will answer this based on how I feel, generally about how I view this. For me, chivalry still exists and hopefully will exist forever — there is a term called ‘modern chivalry’ an act of being gentleman and courteous to women. I don’t expect all men to be chivalrous towards me, I am an independent woman BUT I would be a hypocrite if I say that I don’t expect the guy that I am dating to be chivalrous towards me — I am all about the little things like opening the door for me or basically making me feel like I am safe.
For me, I can say that ‘old chivalry’ is dead because I don’t need every man to protect me, I can very much handle myself. Modern chivalry can suffice.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Zrhene. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
‘Sexy’ means intelligence and passion for me. Men with abs won’t make me go crazy over them, seduce me with how your mind works, your music taste, your perspective in life, your talent or even when you’re talking about how your day went with work — you’d probably catch me just looking intimately over you.
If men can make me drool over their nice body, I’d probably have dated more than three guys now! Thanks Pete, I am always attracted to intelligent and passionate men.
