Ara Mina spent her Holy Week at home. “Kasi ayokong mag-ano sa dami ng tao… Like sa Baguio, sabi ng friend ko, sa Good Shepherd, para na raw langgam ang mga tao, di ba?” she said.


Ara Mina’s summer will officially start this coming weekend.

Unlike most stars that opted to travel during the Holy Week, the actress just stayed at home, where all she did was “nagluto ako nang nagluto.”

But come Sunday, she is going out of town with her family.

At the opening of Goodah’s Eastwood City Walk 2 branch earlier, April 11, she told the press, “In-invite [ko] yung mga kapatid ko.

"Ano kami, summer [outing] lang kami, out of town. Yung parang spend together kasi may kanya-kanya na silang pamilya, e.”

Her sister Cristine Reyes, however, will not be joining the trip.

“Di siya nakikipag-connect, yun lang,” she simply said.

Making an effort to evade the issue, she added, “Siyempre busy, I understand.

“Hindi, kasi may ASAP siya, busy sa taping niya, so hindi na ako nagtatangkang mag-invite.”

While she was talking, the reporters sensed she was trying to insinuate something.

Startalk’s Gorgy Rulla asked, “Kumusta ba kayong dalawa?”

Her brief reply: “Hindi kami nagkikita ni Cristine.”

When asked to elaborate, Ara said meaningfully, “Well ako naman, naiintindihan ko kung wala siyang time sa family kasi ano, e, napagdaanan ko rin iyan.

“Oo, strike while the iron is hot.

“Not all the time you’re there, di ba.”

Smiling, Ara also pointed out, “understanding nga ako, e,” as far as the job of her younger sister is concerned.

But is she on good terms with Cristine?

“Uhm, wala naman akong tampo.”

Why is she sounding “bitter-bitteran”?

Her brief answer: “Ewan ko…”

At the height of Ara’s career, she was the family’s breadwinner. Isn’t she missing the old times?

Ara threw in, “Okay lang… Uy, ‘wag n'yong sabihin yun, ha, hindi siya naging dependent sa akin.”

One reporter quipped, “Di ba pag may away siya, ipinagtatanggol mo pa siya?”

“Wow, buti alam mo,” Ara said.

This time, she gave away a little about their relationship.

“You better ask her na lang. Wala… I hope she’s happy right now wherever you are.

“Yes, I’m happy with her.

"Sana lang huwag…kahit na sikat siya ngayon, sana lang huwag niyang ilagay sa ulo niya…yun ang ma-a-advise ko.”

When prodded to reveal why she feels uncomfortable talking about Cristine, she remained tight-lipped.

“Hmmm, kain na tayo. Kain na tayo, no comment na.

“I’m tired of talking about her own life na. I have my own life, too.

“Baka sabihin ng iba diyan, nagpapa-isyu pa ako, di ba…

“Ako’ng hinahabol ng isyu before. Ngayon, pinipili kong manahimik.

“Actually, buong Holy Week tini-text niya ako pero ask her na lang, kung anong tine-text niya sa akin.”

This time, we became blunt in asking, “May away ba kayo?”

Her response: “Hindi… Kumbaga ayoko nang mag-elaborate na sabihing ano, di ba… You know naman ako honest ako, e.

“Ayoko naman ding isipin ahhh…we’re not really on good terms right now.

“Baka nag-a-unload. Nagre-reflect. Hindi ko alam.

“Alam mo naman ako ate, siyempre [siya], bata…O, pero wala yun.”

She said it’s been a while since they last talked to each other.

“Hindi kami nag-uusap, text lang,” underscoring that she only replied “once.”

She further admitted, “Walang dapat pag-usapan, e.

“May bago ba sa kanya? Alam mo naman yun, e, di ba? May nabago ba sa kanya?

“Kayo? Anong napansin n'yo?

“Pumunta ako rito para kumain, ha.

“Ah, ano na lang. Malalaman na lang nila kung ano.”

Still beating around the bush, she just said, “Konting ano lang. Ako nga yung nagugulat, di ba?

“May isyu ba o may ano? Hindi ko alam.

“Basta ano lang siya… baka sad lang siya o nagwo-work lang siya, I don’t know.

“Ako, okay ako sa kanya. Ewan ko lang sa kanya. Basta okay ako sa kanya.”

When asked to give a message for Cristine, Ara—who’s now a Christian, said, “Na sana lalo pa siyang i-bless ni Lord.

“At the end naman, siguro you realize naman pagkakamali mo sa bandang huli.

“A, huwag na nating antayin yung ganung bagay.

“Sana… I hope sobrang happy siya.

"Kung she’s not happy, lapit lang siya kay Lord baka nagkukulang siya.”
