Like everyone else, Sanya has had to forego her travel plans to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Still, a girl can dream—and the actress is doing it backwards too.
She recently said Japan, Boracay and Canada are among her favorite destinations.
“Nag-enjoy ako sa Japan dahil masarap ang food nila doon. Favorite ko rin kasi ang ramen lalo na sa kanila is authentic talaga,” she said in a statement sent to Bulletin Entertainment. “Isa pa ay naging bonding din namin ito ng brother ko (Jak Roberto) at ni Barbie (Forteza) dahil kasama ko sila noon.”
Boracay is very memorable to her because the trip happened when she needed it the most.
“Sa Boracay naman, na-enjoy ko sya dahil ito ang first time na nakapag-bakasyon ako after three years na tuloy-tuloy ang trabaho,” she said. “After ‘Encantadia’ ay nabigyan agad ako ng project ng GMA kaya medyo hindi ako nakapag-bakasyon.”
Her travels in Canada may have been short, but it gave her lots of sweet memories.
“Nagandahan naman ako sa Canada kahit short visit lang ginawa ko. Nakita ko kung gaano sila ka-disciplined sa kanilang lugar.”
Sanya is optimistic that once the pandemic is over, everything will be back to normal.
“Alam kong lilipas din itong crisis natin at babalik din sa normal ang lahat. Mabibisita ko pa rin yung mga lugar na di ko pa napupuntahan,” she said.
One of the reasons she looks to forward to traveling again is because her hometown, Malolos, Bulacan, is in the province where a world-class airport will soon be built by San Miguel Corporation.
“Nakaka-proud kasi taga-Bulacan ako and magkakaroon na kami ng airport dito,” she said.
The celebrity knows the New Manila International Airport in Bulakan, Bulacan will be able to accommodate 100 million passengers every year, will have four runways with a provision for two more and a seamless transport system.
She reminds Filipinos not to lose hope and keep following health protocols to avoid contacting the dreaded illness.
“Maging maingat lagi sa sarili,” she said. “And let’s not lose hope. Pag-aralan nating mag-cope sa ganitong crisis. Hindi naman tayo bibigyan ng problema na hindi natin kaya.”
