Nakakapagod din palang yumuko't magliha ng mga upuan bago barnisan, at pagkatapos naman ay magpintura ng mga pader para mas maaliwalas sa mata ang kapaligiran ng mga bata, nakakapagod po, totoo, pero masarap sa pakiramdam na alam mong pagpasok nila sa Lunes, nakangiti sila, dahil muka nang bago ulit ang pinapasukan nila. 🤗 Sana po maging inspirasyon ito sa lahat ng mga studyente! Salamat din po sa lahat ng mga guro at volunteers na nagtulong-tulong po para sa araw na ito! Share share na kami ng lunch today. ~ @greenwichpizza 🍕 ~ #BrigadaEskwela @SaveTheChildren @savethechildrenph

(It is tiring to bend over and sandpaper chairs before they are varnished, and after that to paint walls so that the surroundings look bright to the kids. It’s true that is tiring, but it feels good to know that when they go to school on Monday, they will smile because their classrooms look new.)

The actress, who turned 24 last May 11, has been spending past weekends of her birth month doing charity work.  /ra
