Since her foray into show business, StarStruck luminary Iwa Moto has been known for her candor and no-nonsense attitude. But she still gets scared—dead scared, actually—especially if she's dealing with something or somebody she cannot see.
In a chat with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last Sunday, October 28, Iwa shared her recent brush with the unknown.
UNWANTED BEDSPACER. "Last week lang, natulog ako around five ng hapon then nagising ako ng mga six, 'tapos feeling ko, ang bigat-bigat ng katawan ko," Iwa began her story.
At first, the young actress said that she attributed her discomfort to stress, and perhaps, it was an indication that she still needed extra hours of sleep. But she also knew that there's something strange going on.
"Tapos nung pinilit kong bumangon, hindi ako makabangon," continued Iwa, her voice filling up the empty corridor while recalling the chilling moment. "Tapos tumayo ako. Pagtayo ko sumisigaw ako, walang boses na lumalabas sa bibig ko 'tapos nakabukas na yong pintuan."Pagtingin kong ganun [Iwa turned her head to the left], may nakatabi na sa ‘kin, ibang-iba 'yong hitsura. Takot na takot ako, talagang nag-freak out ako and namumutla ako... hindi ko maintindihan."
Iwa became ill because of the distressing incident.
Iwa added, "Kinabukasan noon, hindi ako nakapag-trabaho, parang na-trauma. Lately, parang lagi akong may nararamdaman."
Because of the experience, the young actress plans to have her house blessed to fend off the bad spirits.
"Nakakaloka, sa bahay ko! Hindi pa kasi nabi-bless yong bahay ko," exclaimed Iwa in amusement. "Kaya ‘yon...bonggang-bongga, dinadalaw ako ng mga espiritu!"
