Hello there, Tori! What’s up?
Truly, a determining factor for any young artist’s worth is the advancement of her career with the opportunities being offered and made available for her. That much sought after privilege can go at a fast pace or at a steady pace.
For Tori Garcia, she has the second scenario going for her and either way you look at it that is a considerable measure of success dealt her. Not every new artist can say he has the same going for him even though he may be truly talented because that is just the way things go oftentimes… life does not always give what one deserves.
So far, Tori’s career as a singer-actress has steadily flourished and moved forward. And I couldn’t be happier for her. Indeed, she becomes another example as to why the continued development of young and talented artists is a must. It ensures there will always be the next batch of artists to look out for and nurture in a professional manner. This promotes a never-ending cycle of fresh and bright “new faces” to be introduced to the public.
And one such relatively “new face” to enter the entertainment industry is the pretty Tori Garcia who is a singer-actress. Here below is my follow-up piece on her.
1) If you could produce and direct your own film, what title would you give it and what kind of movie would it be?
Tori Garcia: “Should I, Should I Not?”
2) You have been guesting on more radio shows, is there one question that you would never want to be asked again by the DJ?
Tori Garcia: Hmm…. no, there isn’t. I am open to answer anything. That makes everything more interesting, doesn’t it?
3) What Filipino food have you discovered since you came from Singapore? On a related note, do you like to learn and cook dishes you enjoy?
Tori Garcia: I have tried most Filipino dishes in Singapore but the ones I’ve discovered here are mostly the street food like “dynamite” and suman. Of course, I’d love to learn how to make them!
4) What kind of music are you listening to now? Any specific tracks that you can’t get enough of?

6) Have you received any advice from any of the veteran artists you have worked with that has become your mantra here?
Tori Garcia: I got this from Nino Muhlach. He told me to “Keep punching. One day I’ll land a great hit and that’s the day I will look back to and enjoy the hard work.”
7) If you could learn any foreign language in an instant, what would that be, and why?
Tori Garcia: I would love to learn French. I know quite a bit of a number of languages already but they are mostly the languages of Asian countries. It would be nice to know a European language.
8) What is the sweetest thing anyone has done for you to show how much you mean to that person?
Tori Garcia: My manager threw me the biggest surprise last year during my birthday.

My manager then gave a speech to show much he appreciated me and how much he believes in me.
