Pinay in Pink March 2011: Hannah Villasis

I met Miss Hannah last month at AXN's Launching of Blue Bloods in Resorts World Manila. I did not expect to see her that day, but prior to our meeting, I already asked her to be featured as Pinay in Pink (which she gladly approved). We visit and drop comments to each other's blog though. Honestly, I really like her because she is inspiring and truly is "more than a pretty face".

Name: Hannah Rika Villasis
Nickname: Hannah
Hometown: Bacolod
Age: 25
Status: In a Relationship :P
Height: 5'
Weight: 110 lbs
Language Spoken: Ilonggo, Tagalog, English

PML: You seem to be very healthy. Are you a fan of vegetables? How do you keep in shape?
Hannah: I hated vegetables because my mom forced me to eat them when I was a kid. But, I am a health freak and as I grow up, I introduced vegetables to my diet.  I keep in shape by dancing, going to the gym and joining marathons :)

PML: What fashion style are you into now?
Hannah: I love Japanese fashion so I'm into that. I love boots, sweaters and blazers, but I can't wear them here in the Philippines so I find an excuse to dress them when I travel :)  I also love dresses and wedges.  Inspiration Spice Girls, Katy Perry and Blake Lively.

PML: Clothes, jewelry, shoes or bags? Choose one and why.
Hannah: Clothes. No wait, shoes... crap It's so hard to choose!  I must say clothes.. I like dressing up and it usually depends on my mood :)

PML: You have thousands of Facebook fans for Flair Candy.Com. Wow, how did you get a flair for blogging and where do you get your inspiration?
Hannah: I started blogging out of boredom from my previous day job.  I didn't bother with fans, page views and the stats. I just love to share. Then, I get emails and thank-you notes from my readers. It always pushes me to do more and to blog more. I want to empower women to do more than the usual and to become what they want to be.

PML: Accounting, blogging, hosting, and now modeling, which job do you like the most? Why?
Hannah: Blogging :)  I am myself always when I'm blogging. And, it is with blogging that people / brands / companies discovered me and it opened opportunities for modeling, hosting, become their brand endorsers and even acting. I loved my work before as a financial analyst too. I just felt that I can do more and so I explored the world of the digital.

PML: Just one common interview question. How do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Hannah: I can never tell for sure what's ahead. There are so many things I am not in control of, so I just seek opportunities and grab them when I see it. One thing I want to still be doing though is to blog. And for my blog, I want to go international. I started that way anyway. I made friends from Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Vietnam because I didn't know that the Philippines has many bloggers here too. I made friends worldwide and because of that, I was sent on an international blogger's trip to cover an event. It was very fun meeting bloggers from other countries. In 5 years, I hope to see myself in New York covering Fashion Week, or in Hawaii somewhere surfing. I also bought a sewing machine because I want to make costumes for myself so cosplaying and designing my own line would be awesome. But you know, you never can predict. Five years before, I never thought I'd be doing what I'm doing now. I thought, I would still be doing accounting and getting old.  

Also, if I get rich because of what I'm doing (as of now, it's barely paying the bills) I would pick a charity to focus my advocacy and it is either (or both) something that involves women's rights or for the environment.
