Sanya Lopez says older brother Jak Roberto is the only one who can "bully" her. The Kapuso actress recalls some of their petty squabbles while growing up, and shares how her kuya also turns out to be her best advisor, especially in matters of the heart.


Sanya Lopez is very thankful to have an older brother like Jak Roberto who she can look up to.

Although she admits that they've had their share of fights during their growing-up years, she now merely dismisses them as petty affairs.

The Haplos star says, "Normal sa magkapatid ang nag-aaway," and describes their squabbles as "away bata."

Laughing, she reveals, "Si kuya lang ang nangbu-bully sa akin.

"Anak daw ako ng kalabaw.

"Nanggigigil ako, e!

"Sabi niya, ‘Akala mo, anak ka ng kalabaw. Itim mo kaya!’"

But once their tuksuhan turns into pikunan, the Kapuso actress reveals it has always been Jak who apologizes first.

"Siya yung nauuna. Panganay ka, e. Parang ganun.

"Maya-maya, siya yung lalapit madalas sa akin kasi siya yung may kasalanan, kaya siya yung unang nagsu-sorry," she reminisces.

Turning a bit serious, the Kapuso actress adds that Jak isn't the type who meddles with other people's affairs.

Furthermore, her kuya is always willing to give her advice, especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

She tells PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Siya yung may mas alam, e.

"Lalaki siya, so mas may idea siya about sa guys.

"Sinasabi niya lang sa akin, ‘Hinay-hinay ka lang.'

"'Check muna natin, ‘tsaka wag mo muna ibigay kumbaga yung heart mo sa tao, kasi baka maapektuhan ka kaagad, niloloko ka lang pala.'"

According to Sanya, Jak's constant reminder is, "Konsulta mo muna sa akin."

Meanwhile, living up to her part as his dutiful sister, she also does the same for him.

She shares, "Kapag ako yung mismong lumapit sa kanya, ganoon din siya sa akin, kung iku-consult niya sa akin.

"Kung siya mismo yung lalapit sa akin, okay ako doon.

"Hindi ko naman siya tinatanong, 'Meron ka bang ano... [girlfriend].'

"Ganoon kami parehas."
