This picture deserved drama- because the beauty of @gemma_chan was just breathtaking even at 1 AM(yes, malakas ang loob kong tabihan sya)... but I couldn't reveal more of our exquisitely enchanting location- if you'll notice in all my pictures I'm either in my hoodie or my blanket to hide my @michael5inco gown. Still not allowed to mention the movie nor my role BUT I NEED TO EXPRESS MY HEARTFELT GRATITUDE for making this Filipina feel so honored to have been given this unprecedented opportunity... to the whole production THANK YOU for being so professional yet warmly welcoming, and from observing you work, teaching me so many new things about your singular world. #Mabuhay
