“Makikita niyo naman kung kumakain ako, e! Kitang-kita sa mukha ko”
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is known for always keeping herself in shape.
But it doesn’t mean that she deprives herself of good food especially when she travels.
However, she admits to FreebieMNL, “It’s not easy. It is so hard to resist temptation.”
But even then, she maintains a routine to really balance living a healthy lifestyle and staying active.
She says, “I really don’t deprive myself and that’s why when it’s around Christmas season or after my wedding, maybe you’ll go back to my previous photos, makikita niyo naman kung kumakain ako, e! Kitang-kita sa mukha ko.
“But, you know what, I don’t make myself feel bad, I don’t make myself feel guilty anymore. To me, I just enjoy, I enjoy food.”
Pia believes that it is inevitable for one to not eat when travelling because “it’s part of the experience.”
She adds, “Huwag mo nang i-deprive yung sarili mo and just know that have a balance. Of course, when you have some free time, stay active. [Kung] kaya mo namang lakarin, lakarin mo na lang. All those little things really help.
“But I don’t deprive myself of good food anymore because it’s just so… like, how can you fully experience a place if you don’t eat right and it’s sad!
“Filipinos love food. We love to taste different flavors and we love to do it with a group, we love to do it with friends. We love to socialize! So, hindi ko siya kayang tanggalin, magwo-work out na lang ako para mabalanse ko siya.“
FreebieMNL spoke to Pia during the Q&A part of Lay’s Open A World of Flavor event on August 4 at TriNoma Activity Center.
Pia’s travel essentials
During an interview after the program, Pia also shared what one essential that she brings every time she travels.
Her answer: “Camera, palagi!”
But she also poses a reminder for everyone who uses their phone as camera, based on her own experience.
“Kung phone man ang gamit mo, may memory na hindi ka magbubura-bura pa habang nag-ga-gala and nag-back up ng files kasi nangyari na sa akin yan before na accidentally mabubura o mawawala, ‘tapos wala na!
“Lahat ng kinuha mong mga photos, mawawala na so mag-back up ng files!”
Pia is the newest ambassador of Lay’s as it launches three new flavors inspired by different countries: Korea, America, and Mexico.
