Rhian Ramos, who is celebrating her 28th birthday today, October 3, will take a break from showbiz for a few months.
Her destination: New York.
Her recent post showed her stylish airport OOTD: a limited-edition textured jacket from Jail Jeans, her signature tank top and skinny jeans, a belt bag from Vantage.ph, and a pair of killer boots.
For her approximately-six-month stay, her luggage consisted of two suitcases, an alis-bayan box, and a back pack.
Interestingly, she was able to include a massage chair in the box.
In the caption, she wrote, "To my fellow pinoys, hindi ko alam kung gaano pala ka-challenging mag empake ng alis-bayan box! Nasubukan ang aking kakayahan sa tetris. Pero believe it or not, there's a massage chair in there. Hello, mahal ang massage sa states no..."
In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), she revealed her plan of taking up short acting courses in UCB Theatre, an American improvisational theatre and training center.
She said, "Improv, I just wanna take improvisation. It’s when you're acting na walang script. Parang it will teach you to be very present in the moment, react to all of the things...They teach a lot of comedy, stand-up comedy impromptu. Each course is about three-month long and I plan to take maybe beginner and intermediate, kung itu-total ko six."
This is the longest time she'll be away from her family, so she will most likely go home whenever her schedule allows.
"I’ve never even lived outside of my house, never ko pang na-experience yung kailangan kong ipagluto yung sarili ko or maghugas ng pinggan."
Good luck, Rhian. Happy birthday!
