The Smushed-Face Girl

Yesterday we came across a journal site referring the IY blog to others. The girl with the smushed face in the Sinong Pipiliin na Louise o Ruby post, is the author’s godsister: Adriana Quimpo Chiu.

We adore Adriana. She stood out amongst many because of her distinctive character. To share with you the experience, we are publishing excerpts from the interview.

Jinky: Wow! Ang laki naman ng smile.

J: Anong pangalan mo ulit, sabihin mo, yung mahabang-mahaba. Aaaa-drina.

A: ADRIANA!!

J: Ay, sorry mali. Adriana… tapos ano pa?

A: Quimpo Chiu

J: Ilan taon ka na ulit?

A: Five

J: Hindi ka sixteen ha? Sure ka ha?

A: Alam ko!

J: Anong favorite mong food.

A: Ampalaya.

J: Ampalaya!!! Mahilig ka sa ampalaya?! Hindi ba mapait?

A: Dati naman ‘yun e.

J: Ahh… dati nang mapait…

A: Hinde… dati akong kumakain….

J: Ngayon hindi na?

A: Hindi na. Kalabasa na ngayon.

J: Kumakain ka ba ng fish?

A: Tilapia.

J: Mahilig ka ba sa pets?

A: Opo.

J: Anong klaseng pets?

A: Bunny.

J: Aww…Meron ka bang bunny sa bahay?


A: Wala. Namamatay palagi.

J: Huh!!! Namamatay? Mahirap kasi mag-alaga ng bunny, no? Dog ayaw mo?

A: Ayaw ko. Meron na kami e. Sa kapit-bahay, ang dami. Maingay. Kapag gabi laging nag-aaway.

J: Ano kayang pinag-aawayan nila?

A: Ewan ko.

J: Eh yung pusa? Cat?

A: (exasperated) Pusa nga ‘yon.

J: Pusa ba ‘yon? E yung dog?

A: Isa lang.

J: Ahhh… Harap ka dito tapos tingin ka dito o. Tapos big smile na ginawa mo kanina.

J: Ayaw mo nang gawin?

J: Eh yung sad face mo na lang?

J: Ay! Sad face ba ‘yan?

J: E, angry face? Wala ka bang angry face?


A: Wala.

J: Big smile mo nga ako ulit.



Though she wasn't chosen for the cast, we love Adriana Quimpo Chiu. It’s hard not to.

Hindi kaya the author's daughter's godsister?

Cute talaga ni Rian! Produkto ng walang TV. Vegetarian pa!

i stand corrected!
rian's session was a pleasant breather during the hectic casting for IY. Rian's family were all present to support her video debut! Thanks to Rian's parents Susan and George, Rian's sis and cousin for their time and support for our project.
