Count Kapamilya Maymay Entrata among the wiser ones to have saved enough for the rainy days, which arrived sooner than everyone expected.

The prolonged lockdown following the outbreak of COVID-19 has taken away the lifeline of many people—their jobs, other means of livelihood, businesses.

With the world of showbiz practically at a standstill, Maymay is among those left with no choice but wait out the crisis.

Good thing she's been living it out quite well.

She said at the virtual presscon of Star Magic: Love From Home on June 20, 2020, "Bale lagi kong pinangungunahan iyong mga posibilidad sa future.

"Iyong mga puwedeng mangyari kapag emergency. Napaparanoid ako. Gusto ko lagi akong handa.

"Kaya itong pandemic po, sa awa ng Diyos, nakapagpundar ako, nakapag-save ako at patuloy pa rin ang pagpo-provide ko para sa family ko.

"Kaya napakaimportante talaga na mag-save ka at maging wise tayo sa paggamit ng pera natin para lagi po tayong handa."

MAYMAY AS BREADWINNER

Maymay began taking on the role of breadwinner when she entered showbiz after winning the Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 Big Winner on March 5, 2017.

She said, "Bilang isang breadwinner—three years nathankful ako na natutunan ko na magbudget saka magsave na ng pera para sa family ko.

"Kasi iyong utak ko, iyong mindset ko, nagbago talaga simula noong naging breadwinner ako."

After two years of doing movies, TV shows, endorsements, international fashion shows, and a recording album, Maymay was able to build a house for her family in Camiguin and Bohol, with help from her older brother Vincent.

They invested in the house for their mother Lorna, who has been working in Japan.

She had said during her guesting in Magandang Buhay in September 2019, "Alam niyo po iyong Mama ko, nung nakita niya yung bahay.

"Naiyak siya kasi 28 years na siya doon sa Japan 'tapos nagre-rent pa rin sila, e, sobrang mahal ng rent doon.

"'Tapos naiiyak siya kasi may sariling bahay na siya 'tapos hindi niya akalain magkakabahay na siya."

The PBB big winner also gave her cousin Jimboy his own tricycle to help him with their family's finances.

She related, "Siya iyong pinakapanganay na pinsan sa amin. Parang magkakapatid na kami, so tinulungan ko rin sila.

"'Tapos, ayun, para sa business na rin nila, para sa pamilya niya. Kasi may dalawang anak na siya."

In another guesting in Magandang Buhay earlier that year, Maymay also revealed she has been sending her three younger cousins to school.

She said, "May pinag-aaral po ako ngayon, tatlong pinsan ko po.

"Nag-promise kasi ako sa kanila, kasi nga [galing] broken family din sila.

"Kasi ako na rin ang parang tinuturing nilang ina.

"Kaya sabi ko, 'paaaralin ko kayo.' At saka honor [students] sila."

"'Tapos nagawa ko ring mag-edit ng vlog.

"Ako po nag-edit ng vlog na inupload ko sa YouTube channel ko.

"Saka nakapag-compose po ako ng isang kanta...
