Andre Paras does what he loves: entertaining people!

He suggests, “If you have a driver, make random videos and entertain people. That’s what I love doing, entertaining people.

"Take videos. That’s something you can do—entertaining yourself and entertaining people who follow you.”

Other traffic essentials for The Half Sisters actor:

1. Food

“Make sure you always have extra food in your car because, based on experience, I get hungry kaagad.

“And I don’t know why, parati ako minamalas sa traffic. So when I’m stuck in traffic, parating nasa gitna ng EDSA or somewhere na walang gas stations, I have no food.”

2. Keep your cool

“Make sure di ka napipikon, kasi once traffic hits, I know a lot of hot-headed drivers, they’re really annoying, and sometimes they throw coins at my car.

“It's also my fault. Nang-i-inis rin ako e kasi I try to entertain myself also.”

3. Create a traffic playlist.

What are the songs he listens to?

Andre replies, “Hindi mawawala yung songs ni James [Reid] and Nadine [Lustre], all-time favorite, yung songs nila Yassi [Pressman].

“It’s more like I love their songs kasi they gave me their albums, I have it in my car.”

James, Nadine and Yassi are Andre’s co-stars in his 2014 movie Diary ng Panget.

Elmo Magalona's traffic moods depends on whether he's all by himself or with other people.

“Kasi if I’m alone, sobrang dami kong puwedeng gawin, e.

“You sing your heart out! No one’s gonna hear you so you sing your heart out. Listen to music.”

This 21-year-old singer stays calm with a traffic playlist which includes “Good Vibes, Friday songs when it’s the end of the week.”

Like his kuya, Arkin Magalona loves listening to music when stuck in traffic.

“I go on Spotify and then I go on 'Today’s Top Hits' or 'Rap Caviar [playlists].'”

The 15-year-old budding singer-actor kills time the way a normal teen does.

“I sleep, I play video games, I draw stuff on a pad of paper, and I talk to my friends like Skype or something.”

He forgot to mention that, just like his brother, Arkin also loves taking selfies!

He also prefers listening to chill music while travelling.

Teen balladeer James Wright shares his traffic playlist:

First, Justin Bieber songs “Where Are You Now?” and “What Do You Mean?”

Next, “’God Gave Me You’ because everybody has been hooked to that song ever since Alden Richards dedicated it to Yaya Dub a.k.a. Maine Mendoza of the famous AlDub loveteam.

“And then, a One Direction song, because even though I’m not a good fan of One Direction, I really love their music. Daming meaning, e.

“Actually, I’d like to add my own songs, e. Kasi, everytime I listen to my songs, parang nasa ibang mundo ako."

Some of James’s songs include GMA teleserye theme songs “Sana’y Ikaw” from Marian Rivera’s Carmela and “Kung Hindi Ikaw” from Carla Abellana-Tom Rodriguez series My Destiny.

Aside from enjoying music, model and 2015 Candy Cuties leader LA Aguinaldo uses the time he's stuck in traffic to reflect and meditate.

“Kasi you’re in traffic, it’s a negative thing. So why don’t you make a positive out of it?

“It’s the time to think about your life, think about your plans and your aspirations instead of focusing on the negative.”

This cutie does not only have good looks and a to-die-for physique, he also knows how to make use of his time wisely.

“That’s the time I actually get the time to write down notes, plan to do in the following weeks.

“Delete photos on my phone, just to make space or just to reminisce."

Lastly, he checks via text messaging who among his friends are also stuck in traffic.

“[I] check who’s doing okay, who’s doing fine...your friend has been stuck in EDSA for five hours, ikaw 30 minutes pa lang, so damayan rin minsan.”

Car selfie from LA!

Stay gold
