22 October 2011



the accidental everything.



My life has taken unexpected, surprising, accidental twists and turns. As I try my best to roll with the punches, I have learned to enjoy the ride and make the most out of it all.





11 years! My first ever ad for Pantene in 2000, and my latest ad for Meg in 2011.

My sister told me about a contest, and I won the modelling contract.


I was a freshman in college, and I was walking in the mall with my sister. Some might call it the “usual model discovery story”, but for me, it was anything but usual. People don’t believe me when I say that I am a very shy person, but I really am! Plus, I looked very awkward my whole grade school and high school life and never considered myself to be model-worthy. After some prodding from my sister, I had my photo and info taken at a contest booth in the mall. To my surprise, a week after, I found myself the winner of a search that would fly me to Kuala Lumpur to meet other winners from the Asean region to shoot a major shampoo tri-media campaign. How lucky can a girl be?! It was way beyond any dream I could ever have for myself, and it “accidentally” happened. My start in the world of modelling came at a time of my life when I was just trying to be comfortable in my own skin, and when I was still trying to find which of my interests I would pursue as a possible career. Modelling definitely helped me boost my confidence and it opened my world in ways I never knew possible. So many of the friends and workmates I hold dearest to me I met in this industry. And I will be thankful forever.









I still can't believe I had the chance to host alongside the "King of Talk". Such a blessing.

My dream was to work off cam, instead I ended up on cam.


I graduated college with a major in Communications and a minor in Philosophy. My dream was really to be a writer slash director, and to pursue further film studies after a bit of experience in local production work. My first job in ABS-CBN came when I was a junior in college. I worked part-time as a brainstormer for the Creative Development Group. Basically, we would come up with concepts for new TV shows to pitch to management. I sat in whole day meetings, squeezed my creative juices out, stayed at the office until midnight, wrote sample scripts, and literally ran after bosses to present concepts. After a year of doing that job, and take note I was still modelling on the side, I was asked by my now-friend and then-handler Jet Valle if I wanted to try out to be on TV. Again, I am a painfully shy person, but by that time I had around three years of modelling experience, so I already knew how to “turn on” my confidence. My older brother JC was at that time, a host for the now-defunct morning show “Breakfast”, so I said, maybe I can try out hosting. A movie review show, morning show, youth debate show, housemate stint later, I now find myself proudly hosting entertainment newscasts like SNN and E Live, and the local franchise of the worldwide hit reality show Big Brother. Who would’ve thought? I just feel so blessed!









The Diary of a Supergirl Wannabe, eight years and counting! :p

I simply enjoyed writing and taking photos, now it is a site uniquely my own.

It was in high school when  I discovered that I enjoy writing. Whether it be my class play or video presentation, doodles on my notebook, or a bit of fiction, I found that I liked expressing myself through words. Fast forward to when I was a Junior in college, and online social networking sites weren't big at all. A batchmate of mine, Ala Paredes, introduced me to blogger. The thought of having an "online journal" appealed to me because I've always wanted to keep a journal, but never had the patience to fill it up. So something online seemed like a right fit for me, because instead of an actual notebook I had to keep and bring around with me, all I had to do was click, click, click to see my journal. So it was in September of 2003 that my blogsite was born. I decided to name my blog "superbianca.blogspot.com", with the disclaimer, "the diary of a supergirl wannabe". Fast forward again to this day day, my blog is actually eight years old this month! Wow. I never imagined my blog would live this long! Plus, in the industry I am in, not a lot of my colleagues have blogs. I would like to think my blog, now the domain but still "the diary of a supergirl wannabe", is something that makes me different and sets me apart.


And just when I thought things couldn't get any better, just this October, I was given my own Sunday column in The Philippine Star. (Whoa. This one I still have trouble trying to wrap my head around. It's like I'm in a dream!!!!) Thank you to my editor Millet Mananquil for believing in me and what I have to say. You can read my past articles on my tumblr site.










One of the photos in my Travel Tumbling Shot Collection. This was taken in SoHo, New York City.

All I wanted was to escape, instead I became a traveler.

I was heartbroken. I won't get into specific details about when and with who, but I was. We've all been there. Every place I was in, every song or movie I saw, every friend I came across, everything reminded me of my heartbreak. I wanted to get away. I wanted to go far, far away from it all. Yes, it was "escaping" my problems, but I wanted to do it. So I went far away. I went on trips when my work schedule had three, four, or five days off. I went around the country, around Asia, across the ocean. I went with friends, I went alone. Sure enough, in time, my heartaches went away. And without knowing it, it hit me. I gained something wonderful from it all. The love for travel. Seeing so many new places, learning about different cultures, meeting so many interesting people, and knowing yourself even more. Traveling is like going to school all over again and being a student of life. Its an enriching personal experience unlike any other. I'm now thankful for that heartbreak, because it helped me evolve into the eager traveler I am today. The wealth of experience and memories I now have, and am looking forward to have, is priceless.










At a storytelling session in a day care center in Manila for the UNICEF ECCD Program.



I was just doing my little part, but ended up taking on a bigger role.

My mom brought me and my siblings up making sure that we knew how to share. If we knew how to share our toys, we would get more toys. If we didn't share, no more toys. That simple. Little did I know that this upbringing would have a big impact on my life. When I started working as a model and host, I started to grow my money saved. There came a time that I felt that I had enough to "share" a bit, and so I started this personal project of giving school supplies to underprivileged kids. What started as a simple gift-giving in Christmas of 2005 became a bi-annual event that still goes on to this day. When some of my supporters heard about this, they offered their help as well. I wanted their donations to go to a worthwhile, trustworthy project, and by some act of destiny, I met people from UNICEF, and the funds I raised went to libraries and day care packages for UNICEF beneficiaries in 2007. After a few more fundraising projects, in March 2010, it was my great honor and privilege to be appointed Special Advocate for Children by UNICEF Philippines. Its surreal to me to this day, but I both proudly and humbly carry the title.








October, my first issue as official Editor-At-Large.

I love browsing through magazines, now I’m an editor.

I don't consider myself to be a fashionista nor do I know what trends will be big when. But I am sure that love beautiful clothes and I definitely enjoy reading magazines. I love the beautiful photos, seeing how the models pose, learning about the new products, I love the colors, the layouts, the articles, and seeing how I can make the looks that I  see fit my personal style. I've written a few articles as contributor to a couple of local magazines, and I've been doing fashion and beauty editorials since I started modeling in 2000. A few months ago, in a totally unexpected turn of events, I was invited by the Mega Publishing Group for a meeting. And now, I proudly share with you all that I am Editor-At-Large of Meg Magazine. Whaaaat?! Yup. Conceptualizing, shooting, writing, finalizing. My two issues so far are the September and October issues of Meg. I still can't believe it, but I am a part of it all. Like I wrote earlier, unexpected twists and turns.





You can plan your life as much as you want. But there will be times that another path you were not expecting will open up, and you have to make the decision whether to take it or not. Sometimes, you'll do great, sometimes you will fail, but that is part of it all. My life did not go as I planned it, but with hard work and a positive attitude, I ended up where I am now. And I'd like to think I didn't do so bad. :)

This is so super ate bianca! Your blog was the one who encouraged me to have my own blog as well. I find it interesting that you can enjoy writing your thoughts and at the same time, you can share it to random people. Please keep on inspiring us, youth, and keep you feet on the ground. God bless!

your life is the best example of the word 'destiny' :-) good thing you're living your destiny rightly that you're able to share your blessings to others while you're enjoying the pleasure of living what your living now! you're truly a "super bianca" :-)

Vera said...

I still don't think these were accidents (well maybe except the first modeling gig), these were all meant for you. And you worked hard for all of them. That's why you deserve all these blessings, and many more. I am such a fan :)

Hi Bianca. I've been following you on Twitter and I must say you are definitely an inspiration to so many. I appreciate your insights and knowledge about life and I'm glad that we have people like you to share your world with us. Through all the corruptions and negative situations in our world, we definitely need super heroes to roam our streets whether it be just to share a piece of thoughts to inspire and encourage more and more people to never give up, never lose hope and keep the faith. Thank you for sharing your personal life with us all. --girl from Guam oojhoanaoo

Your closing remark for this blog entry is really true! We must live our lives with no regrets, just lesson learned. After all, they made the person that we are today.

LESLIE said...

W-O-W!! So inspiring! I also didn't planned everything about my life, and ended up proud on what i have achieved already. Might be simple but true, Just do your BEST and God will do the rest! :)

thewalkingaccidentzone said...

I really am deeply inspired by you, Ate bianca :) I just want to say I've been reading your blog posts all these times, and this is just the first time that I am trying to send my deep gratitude to you. I've been planning what I want to be and what I want to do as I grow as a person, I am now in my second year in college, taking up Media Studies, and lots of opportunities has been coming my way, it's just so sad that up until now, I still don't get and become what I really want. I want to do a lot of things; write, model, do photography, take up film, exactly the reason why I was really captivated by this post. Do I have to focus with just one path? Then, one path after another?

At this very moment I feel so down 'coz recently I just let another big modeling opportunity slept away. "Sometimes, you'll do great, sometimes you will fail, but that is part of it all. My life did not go as I planned it, but with hard work and a positive attitude, I ended up where I am now. And I'd like to think I didn't do so bad. :)" And after reading those, I feel like all I really need is hard work and positive attitude, another path might open up soon and all I have to do is decide whether to take it or not. You're such a great inspiration Ate bianca, you lighten up people's mind without even trying. Keep your blog open up until forever and keep on inspiring people like me! God bless you ;)

hi bianca! im glad i get to rid this post...it made me breath from being too grouchy the whole day..a bit unrelated story to your post... but the positive vibe really helped!!!

i think im going through some post partum depression or something... im feeling so bad that my newborn doesnt want to breastfeed on me anymore after he got used to bottlefeeding (because the daddy pity the little dude that he offered to do the night shift of taking care of the boy that when i woke up one morning he doesnt want to feed him anymore). been feeling so low that this is not going according to plan...i even produced lesser milk during my pump today... i was too grouchy at my hubby for not being the supportive hubby i expected him to be...im just sad that my milk will start to disappear sooner... :-( but oh well... there's just somethings you cant change anymore...just make do... :-)

karenskii said...

I've always been a shy girl so my basic form of entertainment when i was a kid was watching tv. local tv=artista. A certfied tv addict. I remember I never wanted to go to family reunions because I didn't want to miss any single episode of a noon time show or a weekly shwobiz oriented show. Back in gradeschool and high school I was never that active joining orgs or activities. I was a MAJOR SHY student. I never talked. I hated recitations. I hated plays. I hated attention. I wanted to be an architect or an interior designer. I wanted to head sphere a house/building. Sadly, i didnt passed an entrance exam in architecture. I was devastated. And my second option was Communication ARTS I do not know why i chose that career considering that i fear that field. I do not want standing in front of a crowd or performing in a theatre guild. Fast forward i am now working in a tv production, facing different artistas almost everyday. Always preparing myself to be an "extra/passerby" on whatever need that our show may arise. Getting attention and seeking attention in an industry where SHYNESS is a big NO NO. i Know that i would earn more if i pursue a career in design or hearing my name with a prefix ARCHITECT "insert name here". I didn't want to end up to be a yaya and be an all around person for a STRESSFUL-BUZZER BEATER field of media. But one thing is for sure the new direction that God has driven me, made me a STRONG, BETTER and away from the SHYNESS-LOW CONFIDENT self before. just do GOOD on where you are now and GOD will surely be incharge of the rest. sabi nga nila sa profession namin, "P.A ka" meaning "Palaging Ako mode"

thanks for this inspiring post Biancs. lesser questions for me now on where I am.

Hi Miss Biancs,
I adore you and you give so much inspiration to a lot of people. Please don't take this the wrong way but I just noticed that when you write "It's" which is the short form for "it is", most of the time I see it without the apostrophe ('). Its without the apostrophe denotes ownership. Sorry I have just noticed and wanted to point it out. Nevertheless, I still idolize for many reasons:) keep on inspiring people:)

Hello Bianca!

You are such an inspiration to many. I read your blog every once in a while. It is such a beautiful evolution of a truly blessed life. I admire your passion & hard work.

You are who I wanted to be when I was much younger. In my life I have made so many mistakes but I never want to give up because I always believe that one day I will make something of myself in my own little way & make myself proud. I carry with me in my heart all those lessons from the past to help me achieve a beautiful & peaceful future by focusing on what I need to do now.

Continue to become an inspiration to us all especially to the youth. Take care & God bless you more!

I've always wanted my life to be so planned, that I get disappointed every time it turned out differently. But your blog made me realize that it is not bad to change your path sometimes. Malay mo, that path might lead you to success. Thank you for this post. You really inspire me/us. Keep blogging.

Kayumanggi said...

Hi Bianca, your experience and achievements are manifestations of the seeds you have planted earlier in your life. You went through your highs and lows with the same degree of enthusiasm and embraced all of these with unconditional love. You are blessed with all the love and happiness because you give more, you share more. Remember Master Oogway in Kung Fu Panda, when he chose Poh to be the Dragon Warrior, he said "there are no accidents". Even before you had the comprehension to plan your life, everything has been planned for you. Love and Light :-)

Hi!Bianca, I never really thought that after your brother JC, I would also be inspired by his sister. I have always find both of you, part of my predilections whenever we talk of people who I would consider as "benchmarks" as to how I would want my career to be like, and perhaps some facets of my life too.(especially the peripatetic part) I hope that you would continue to do wonders not just to the industry that you are part of,but also to the lives of those you have touched. More Power and God Bless you and your family!

Very inspiring. Great job, bianca! Been a fan since back then when you were still starting out in non-mainstream shows.You've gone soooo far and you've gone through a lot!!! I really feel that we're on the same boat which we all wish to be always afloat -- that same boat wherein the 20-plus-something-in-age hopefuls trying to surpass daily grind of adult challenges are all barged in. Thanks for being one of those I consider as "life benchmarks" to this day. Cheers to years and years of pleasant surprises!:)

You are indeed blessed to be given such opportunities in life that enable you to walk the talk of your dreams. I'm very happy for you.

I've always known that you are nothing like the other celebrities that appear on TV. You are an individual of substance, you being a sensible writer and thinker, and for that I will always read your blog.

Cheers. :)

Paulo Dalaota said...

Maybe I just need to blurt this out. You’re one of the few in the biz that I genuinely admire. I follow your twitter account, your blog, and you’re the reason why I now buy PhilStar’s Sunday issues. Your blog actually inspired me to start mine, and it’s already more than a year old. I also actually watched you live at QC during the first season of PBB (eviction nights) while I was still reviewing for my CPA Board and didn’t mind putting off studying and spending the night at coffee shops after the show due to curfew reasons (boarding house rules). It’s been what, four or five years? And I still watch PBB now whenever I can.

I just wanted to tell you that I do not really believe in accidents. These things are for you, and although they might look like they were at first glance, believe that a man up there intentionally crafted these all for you for the simple reason that you deserve them. You have a good heart Bianca, and meeting and befriending you’s always been in my bucket list. Maybe not in this lifetime – yeah, but I’ll still take it.

Keep inspiring others.

Hi Bianca!

I am not even sure if you're going to read this. But I am taking my chances.

We are running an online store selling accessories for women. We are currently looking for local celebrities and sponsor their accessories.

I know that you love wearing trinkets/accessories that is why we are contacting you.

I hope to have a reply from you (or from your handler). I know you are busy and would not entertain people like me but again, i'm taking my chances.

You may contact us at trinketsunlimited@gmail.com

Thanks and more power!!!!!

you are not a typical celebrity. i admire you since Y Speak days. you're very sensible, compassionate and a model a lot of us should look up to. Keep it up!

Congratulations! God gave you something you truly deserve. Continue writing to inspire people and touch their lives --- remember, it's not just the stories you share but with how you share it. You're one of the best storytellers, you should imagine me go oooh and aaah (with eyes opening wide) as I read your stories. More power and Godspeed!

Hi Supergirl Wannabe! It's been a long time since I last read your blog. It's nice to have browsed and read through your blog entries again. I had tons to catch up but was able to read 'em all. I have to say that this is one of the most inspiring entries in your entire blog aside from another fave of mine which is sept 14 entry. Here's my fave paragraph from that entry - "GoD has a plan for you, GoD has a plan for every single person you love, GoD has a plan for me. whether something good or bad happens, it all works out for the best in the end. your life may take detours you don't want to happen, or detours that make you fearful, but it is only in time that you will understand why your life had to take that detour." Got me inspired to celebrate and make the most out of life, keep holding on to my dreams, share positivity and spread peace, love and happiness. :)

This statement on this blog entry had a great impact on me (and others as I read the comments on this blog entry): "You can plan your life as much as you want. But there will be times that another path you were not expecting will open up, and you have to make the decision whether to take it or not. Sometimes, you'll do great, sometimes you will fail, but that is part of it all." You are really a thought mover. Kudos!

PS
congrats on your new achievements. Your column in Phil Star and your being an editor at large for Meg Magazine. Of course the new season of PBB (unlimited). You serve as an inspiration to a lot of people. Just keep going and keep rocking! :)

I'm the one who wrote the sweet blog comment that you also featured in your blog entry dated Jan 23 2011. It's time to reveal my identity, hehe!

this article really made me think of my kabarkada's little sissy.. she has a very interesting life story from getting married at the age of 19, moving to germany, getting divorced after a year, finding a new boyfriend, having a kid and now making her way to stardom in fashion blogging. she is now being invited to fashion events, pictorials and being featured in magazines.. she's making her own name outside our country. i'm really so proud of her. She's the person behind http://www.modejunkie.com .. i just hope one of these days all Pinoys will know her and be proud of what she has achieved. she is such an inspiration!
