I was born in Manila, Philippines, an only child. Raised in our hometown of San Pedro, Laguna without a care in the world. My parents were strict but I was a happy child. I didn’t mind having neither brothers nor sisters. I enjoyed quality times spent with my lola (‘grandmother’ in Tagalog), cousins, aunts, uncles, but mostly, times I spent with my parents, especially my father. I was daddy’s little girl.
