For the first time in its 18-year history, YES! magazine has a special double issue this merry month of May.
The first cover hails Liza Soberano as the Most Beautiful Star of 2018, and the second cover features the trio of Magandang Buhay hosts Karla Estrada, Jolina Magdangal, and Melai Cantiveros in celebration of Mother’s Day.
Beautiful Liza answers nearly a hundred random questions about herself and a few more about her love-team partner, Enrique Gil, nicknamed Quen.
Here’s a sample of the YES! interview with Liza:
Highest pressured situation you have ever been in? And how did you handle it?
“No’ng in-offer sa akin ’yong Darna. How did I handle it? I’m handling it now, until now…
“’Cause there’s a lot of people who are having their own opinion of who Darna is, and if I’m capable of portraying her or not.
“Umm, basically, I’m doing what I have to do. And I try to ignore what people say, all the negative opinions of others. ’Yon lang.”
How many babies do you wish to have?
“Four, kasi January 4 ’yong birthday ko. Hindi, joke lang. Gusto ko four para hindi madami, hindi rin konti. Parang sakto lang.”
Napapag-usapan n’yo na ’yan ni Quen?
“Ay, hindi. Hindi po. Ako lang sa sarili ko. Kasi marami akong kapatid kaya gusto ko din…
“Ayoko ng only child. Ayoko din naman ng dalawa lang kasi feeling ko, lagi silang mag-aaway. At least pag four, medyo merong magkakampi na parang hati.”
Favorite part mo ng mukha o body ni Quen?
“Favorite part ko ’yong eyes niya. Ang ganda ng eyelashes niya, ang ganda ng color ng eyes niya. At saka expressive.”
Generous ka, pero there’s something you don’t wanna share.
“I don’t like sharing siguro si Quen. Wala akong maisip, e. Kasi, like sa pagkain, kahit favorite ko, ise-share ko, e.”
Magbigay ka nga ng three tips sa mga mahilig mag-selfie… Kung pa’no to look good in pictures?
“Unang-una, hindi ako magaling mag-selfie. Haha! Ewan ko, ang daming magaling mag-selfie. Feeling ko, hindi ako magaling.
“Siguro, it’s all about proper lighting. ’Yon ’yong unang-una.
“Second, maganda dapat ’yong background mo. Kahit na selfie ’yon, siyempre kung magulo ’yong background, makikita me basura sa likod, hindi rin naman magandang tingnan.
“And third, make sure na blooming ka or siguro hindi lang stressed ’yong mukha mo. Siyempre, mas maganda kung nakangiti, ’yong happy.”
The May 2018 issue also has features on JM de Guzman in the Spotlight section, Jerome Ponce in the Pogi Series, and Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali as the Trending Love Team.
In the Beauty section, Barbie Forteza gives tips on how to have flawless skin like hers, and in the Fashion section, Barbie’s fellow Kapuso young stars Thea Tolentino and Kyline Alcantara don the latest trends.
Plus: coverage of Bianca Umali’s fab debut party, Rufa Mae Quinto’s daughter Athena Alexandria’s first birthday party, and Citizen Jake’s invitational screening.
Aside from Momshies Karla, Jolina, and Melai, we honor 80 more celebrity moms in celebration of Mother’s Day.
Indeed, such a jam-packed last issue as YES! Magazine says goodbye… and hello! YES! is going digital, it finds its home in PEP.ph.
