Who knew all roads lead to Los Angeles? Never in my life I thought I’d end up moving tens of thousands of miles away from home to fulfill something that’s a dream to many. In a very bizarre twist of fate, here I am, blogging from my new home in West Hollywood. I’ve relocated to the City of Angels; one could say I’m an Angeleno now. An angeleno who can’t drive. Hah!

I’m sure you’ve heard the news. I’m thrilled and honored to be part of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 19 panel!

This is my first job on the small screen. Other than the occasional on-cam interviews, I have ZERO television experience. When I landed in Los Angeles on Friday after an eighteen-hour journey from the Philippines, I went straight from the airport to the studio to tape my first episode appearance — the first elimination round. I’m very new to all of this and I’m sure you’ll notice how I’ve been up for a good two days with absolutely little (2 hours don’t count) sleep. I could only wish for magical fairies to sprinkle some miracle dust at the editing room to make me look alright. Hah!

It’s gonna be fun, fun, FUN! I’ve taped another episode yesterday. I was gobsmacked at my trailer. It’s hysterical — I almost had a coronary when I went inside it. I felt like a TV star. Haha! Today is my free day because it’s a holiday in America (Memorial Day). We’re gonna tape another episode tomorrow.

Wish me luck. I love you all!
