i got news from @agentchrislee that my “shoot for the moon” audition for the role in a US series went to an Asian American actress. mahirap talaga pag hindi “boto” ang mga anak ko- especially Bimb… the role was for a sassy, sarcastic, sexy bartender (truth, i know- HINDI BAGAY) but i was ready to take a MIXOLOGY crash course. i don’t drink alcohol at all because of my hypertension, anti anxiety, multivitamin, vitamin D and iron supplement, and most importantly the 4 different antihistamines taken as daily maintenance. it was FUN to try though. GOOD NIGHT to all.
“Mahirap talaga pag hindi “boto” ang mga anak ko- especially Bimb…” she wrote in the caption.
She admitted she wasn’t suited to play the role: “The role was for a sassy, sarcastic, sexy bartender (truth, i know- HINDI BAGAY) but i was ready to take a MIXOLOGY crash course.”
Aquino also said she didn’t drink alcohol considering her medical condition: “I don’t drink alcohol at all because of my hypertension, anti anxiety, multivitamin, vitamin D and iron supplement, and most importantly the 4 different antihistamines taken as daily maintenance.”
Nonetheless, she said “It was FUN to try though.”
Aquino recently shared a snippet of her audition in the “multi-ethnicity” production, describing it as a “leap of faith.”

There are so many people i need to thank for simply BELIEVING in and with me. i shall be back on Monday, i need this weekend to physically recharge, and also to further strengthen my resolve to release all my worries because when i think of all i have been through, where i am now, and the direction i am headed, i have been so BLESSED with the salvation of my Creator’s LOVE. TIME TO FINALLY SLEEP because my 2 sons are okay. Much love to all of you from a very grateful mama.
