Ilang oras na lang at masasaksihan na ang Asianovela na pagbibidahan nina Jericho Rosales at Malaysian actress Carmen Soo, Kahit Isang Saglit, pagkatapos ng Iisa Pa Lamang sa Primetime Bida ng ABS-CBN.

 

EXCITEMENT. Kakaibang excitement ang nararamdaman nina Echo at Carmen dahil after ipalabas sa Pilipinas ang kauna-unahang teleserye na pagsasamahan nila, susunod namang ipalalabas ito sa Malaysia at Singapore.

 

Ayon kay Carmen, hindi raw niya malilimutan ang naging experience niya sa paggawa ng Kahit Isang Saglit. Proud na proud nga ang Malaysian model-actress dahil kinunan din ang ilang mahahalagang eksena ng teleserye sa mismong bansa niya. Naipasyal niya tuloy ang kanyang mga co-stars habang doon nga ginagawa ang Kahit Isang Saglit.

 

"Ah, in Malaysia I was able to tour him [Jericho] together with Tito Albert [Martinez]. I'm a very good tour guide. I took them to wakeboarding. I do wakeboarding in Malaysia. I show them where is the best mall to go, the best cinema and the best restaurant. And if he goes out on his own and then he'll ask help from me... he'll say, ‘This is where I'm going,' I'm gonna tell him, ‘Okay, you should order this.' After a while, he'll get used to it and he'll know where to go already," lahad ni Carmen.

 

Ipinasyal na ba siya ni Echo sa Plipinas?

 

"Not really, no. He's busy, busy. But he tries to help me where to go. He's just been very busy. He's been working."

 

DID HE MEET HER PARENTS? Nagkaroon ba ng chance na maipakilala ni Carmen si Jericho sa mga magulang niya?

 

"No, no, not yet. There wasn't much time. He's taping in Malaysia all the time. Although, we don't do it 24 hours. But it's quite hectic as well."

 

Plano ba niyang ipakilala si Echo sa parents niya sa pagbabalik nila sa Malaysia para sa mga natitira pang eksena na kukunan for Kahit Isang Saglit?

 

"Ah, no. I think there's no need. I think if I happen to be with my parents and I happen to see him, of course, I will introduce him, naturally."

 

EATING PINOY FOOD. What Pinoy food is her favorite now?

 

"I like adobo. I just had that last night," ngiti ni Carmen. "Uhm, pinakbet also. I also like shrimp paste [bagoong]."

 

Babalik ba ulit siya ng Pilipinas?

 

"No more."

 

What will she miss about the Philippines?

 

"A lot of things. Most of all, the people that I've been shooting with, and I think, together with the staff and crew, especially, Echo. They were my friends and family for the last two months. So, we see each other almost everyday, and spending all the time together through blood, sweat, and tears. It's not easy to forget. I think I will have withdrawal symptoms when I'm done. Oh, my God! I will miss everyone."

 

BORACAY BOUND. Wala ba siyang balak talaga na bumalik ng Pilipinas?

 

"I will. I want to go to Boracay. Hopefully, when were done with the shoot."

 

Tatawagan ba niya si Echo ‘pag bumalik siya ng Pillipinas?

 

"Definitely, but hopefully he will be a better tour guide by then," tapos ni Carmen.
