WHAT MAKES A DIFFERENT WHEN YOU SING IN INDONESIA AND IN PHILIPPINES? I’ve joined with major labels, both in Ina and Phillipines. I like more myself in Phillipines, as they liberated me more in terms of music and image. Western influence was pretty strong, so English lyrics are very acceptable there.

I’m with Mike’s Management and Sinjitos Label. Everything is in order, they let me to involve more in > > >

They need to increase their endorphin by doing sports. Even if they feel tired afterward, they become fit as the result. It becomes a huge issue through social medias. They snap their style and post it. It’s not a bad influence, not haughty attitude. They share their hard works and people appreciate it.
WHAT DO YOU THINK THEIR HITCH? Pollution! It’s a pity when you’re running for your health, you probably inhale all the toxin. Ironic. WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU COULD CHANGE YOUR BODY SHAPE? I want to grow my bust! Hahaha need a bigger cup.
WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO BE HEALTHIER? Do all the previous tips and get insurance. It’s stupid when you could spend money in a week that cost as much as monthly premium insurance, yet you chose to use it only for fun.
