How do you keep up with the busy lifestyle?

Jasmine: “Go with the flow. Go to work, I do it. Ella is much busy than me. I have an easy workload and remain relatively normal even though my work hours are not normal.”

How do you take care of your shoes?

Jasmine: “Well I make sure that I store it a place na hindi ma-we-wear out yung material. You have to constantly clean it also.”

On the lighter note, with Sam Concepcion.

Jasmine: “I think the love will never go away naman talaga. When you love someone, it will always be there in your heart. Di mo naman matatangal yun. You will never know what’s gonna happen.”

Do you still go out to malls with friends?

Jasmine: “Yes, I still get to be with friends sa malls. I still wanted to be seen as a normal person.”
