Ever since quarantine began, Maja Salvador has been enjoying each day she spends with boyfriend Rambo Nuñez and his family in the Nuñez house in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

Still, the Kapamilya star can't help but feel homesick.

"Well, namimiss ko po iyong bahay ko kasi syempre nandito kami sa Palawan.

"Mahirap na hindi ka nalockdown sa sarili mong bahay kasi syempre, 'pag sa sarili mong bahay, puwede kang humilata kahit saan, kumain ng nakataas ang paa, kung ano man ang gusto mo, 'di ba?

"E, syempre 'pag dito, very sarap naman mag-alaga ng family ni Rambo, pero iyong nga lang, hahanapin mo pa rin iyong sariling space mo minsan.

"Kasi 'di ba sa sarili mong bahay, nahahanap mo iyon?

"Ito, talagang laging kainan, laging tawanan.

"So iyon ang experience ko sa Palawan na hindi ko nagawa sa sarili kong bahay," Maja recounts.

But more than missing her house in Antipolo, the 31-year-old actress has been yearning for the presence of her own family—especially her mother Thelma Andresin these trying times.

Maja continues, "Mas iba lang iyong tama sa akin ngayong pandemic.

"Lalo na iyong Mommy ko, nag-move na siya sa Canada for good, 'tapos kaming dalawa nalang ng brother ko dito sa Pilipinas.

"So noong nangyari itong pandemic na ito, mas kino-convince ko iyong Mommy ko na sana dito nalang sila ni Daddy Roy sa Manila kasi if ever man—hopefully wala nang susunod, 'di ba-para hopefully whatever man crisis na dumating, magkakasama kaming pamilya.

"Iyong parang less iyong pagaalala ko, dahil mahirap, e.

"Iba kapag Nanay, e, 'di ba.

"Kaya kahit nandito ako sa Palawan, kapatid ko nasa Manila, Mommy ko Canda, almost everyday kami nag-vi-video call.

"Kasi ang rami ring nangyayari sa Canada, kung saan ang Mommy ko, biglang nabaha iyong buong street nila kung saan siya nagwowork din.

"So kahit magkakalayo, grabe iyong pagwoworry mo for your family.

"Kaya kung pupuwede lang na nasa iisang place lang kaming lahat para kahit anong mangyari, okey ang pakiramdam mo dahil magkakasama kayong lahat."

Maja was interviewed by PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press during the virtual presscon of Star Magic: Love From Home on June 20, 2020.

MAJA FINDS COMFORT IN DOING WORKOUT VIDEOS

Aside from relishing sweet moments with Rambo, Maja keeps herself sane by creating workout videos for #HomeButNotAlone, a relief operation that she and Rambo initiated at the beginning of quarantine.

The couple has been joined by several celebrities. They come up with entertaining content to entice viewers to donate to the needs of the country's COVID-19 frontliners.

Maja continues, "Nadiscover ko na bilang sumasayaw-sayaw po tayo, puwede po pala tayo magturo online, magkaroon ng workout sessions online.

"Iyon nga po ang ginawa ko sa #HomeButNotAlone... So may mga na-e-explore ka minsan na, 'Ah, puwede pala ako maging trainer.'

"So, maliban sa nagtuturo ka ng sayaw, ng workout session, nakakapag-entertain ka rin... Hindi talaga nawawala sa akin iyong magbibigay saya, magentertain kasi hinahanap ko talaga."

Shooting these exercise videos has also helped Maja maintain her slender physique even as she keeps eating hearty meals in the Nuñez residence.

She says, "Hindi ako nakakaluto dito. Nadiscover ko na mas malakas pa pala ako kumain. Kaya bawat kain ko, doble, triple iyong workout na ginagawa ko."

Maja stays optimistic amid pandemic

Despite it all, Maja is looking forward to a bright future after the pandemic, and encourages everyone to do the same.

"Alam ko po na mahirap ang pinagdadaanan nating lahat, pero sana po 'wag po tayo mawalan ng pag-asa.

"Hindi madali itong pinagdadaanan natin pero kung pare-parehas po tayo, sabay-sabay tayong magdadasal, alam natin na malalagpasan natin iyong hindi nating nakikitang kalaban, which is iyong virus.

"At sana po, kasama ninyo ang inyong mga minamahal sa buhay kasi iyon ang magbibigay ng lakas sa tuwing gigising kayo ng umaga—na alam niyo na kasama niyo ang pamilya ninyo at maraming nagmamahal sa inyo."
