Heaven Peralejo is grateful to have a mom who is also her best friend.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last Thursday, May 7, she described the cool relationship she has with her mother, Shiela Luanne Peralejo.

"Napag-uusapan po kasi namin talaga lahat... Thankful din ako na may ganun akong klase ng mom."

Asked about the most valuable lessons her mom has taught her, the 20-year-old actress said, "I think yung advice na binigay sa akin ni mom na never kong makakalimutan is yung maging mabait ka lang talaga, yung maging mapagpatawad.

"Kasi ang daming tao na hindi maiiwasang masaktan ka, pero you have to forgive and forget, parang ganun.

"Yun yung laging sinasabi sa akin ni mom, parang one way na rin to be happy sa life. Parang light lang din."

The lesson to forgive-and-forget , she admitted, is easier said than done.

Heaven told PEP.ph, "Many, many times na rin po. Marami na rin akong pinagdaanan na ganyan. It was hard kasi, lalo na kapag hindi niya hinihingi yung forgiveness mo.

"Pero, para at least na rin sa sarili ko na matapos na rin ako sa ganung issue, yun yung lagi niyang tinuturo sa akin na, 'Alam mo ikaw, basta ikaw, mabuti kang tao.' Yun."

She said, "Movies, nanonood kami, as in nagma-marathon kami. Lilipat lang kami ng cinemas.

"Kunyare kahit after work, diretso [kami], 'Ma, meron bang magandang movie lineup? Kung wala, okay lang, papanoorin nating lahat iyan!'

"'Tapos straight lang kami, mga tatlong movies nagagawa namin in one night.

"Lilipat-lipat lang kami ng cinemas, bibili lang kami [ng food] kasi may konting time pa para bumili, so bibili kami, kakain kami. Yun na yung bonding namin."

At home, they usually watch K-Dramas together.

"Sa Netflix, K-Dramas. Like kung ano yung pinapanood niya, sabay-sabay kaming manonood.

"Sa gabi, ewan ko bakit laging gabi, so sa gabi, magwa-wine lang kami, 'tapos manonood or makikinig sa YouTube, magkukuwentuhan lang, ganun."

MOTHER & DAUGHTER'S MATCHING TATTOOS

But the proof that Heaven has the "coolest mom in the world" are their matching tattoos.

"Nung nagpa-tattoo kami ni mom, pumunta kaming South Korea. Akala ko ayaw niya. Akala ko magno-no siya.

"'Tapos sabi ko, 'Mom, magpa-tattoo kaya tayo?' Kasi gusto ko sana na may remembrance ba ng isa't isa, and anywhere I go, at least siya talaga maaalala ko.

"Siyempre, on my skin. Two birds.

"Very memorable kasi dun ko napatunayan na sobrang cool ng nanay ko. So, ayun, pumayag siya."

HER MOTHER'S DAY MESSAGE

In celebration of Mother's Day, Heaven tearfully thanked her mom during the interview with PEP.ph.

"Mom, thank you, thank you po sa lahat ng pagmamahal na binibigay niyo po sa akin, yung patience na binigay niyo rin po sa akin.

"Alam ko rin po na hindi ako perfect daughter, alam ko na may mga downs ako, and yet andiyan ka pa rin to accept who I am.

"Magkaroon man po tayo ng maraming problems, maraming pinagdaanan, but yung ating dalawa, I think yun yung hindi mawawala.

"And I know in my heart na you will do anything and everything kasi mahal mo ako. And ganun din po ako sa inyo. I'll do anything and everything."

Toward the end of her message, Heaven apologized for her shortcomings.

She said, "I'm so so sorry kasi may mga times na I have let you down, and I try, I try to be the best daughter you could have kasi you're the best mom in the world."
