    She loved to sing and dance like no one was watching.

    You probably caught Yaya singing her lungs out to Aegis songs. Or you loved her comical reactions to radio dramas she loved listening to every afternoon!

    She let you watch teleseryes.

    This is how you can recognize most of the local actors and actresses today. You and Yaya bonded over her favorite teleseryes. When you asked her a question about Esperanza or Mula Sa Puso, she could tell you the story from start to finish.


    She loved reading pocketbooks.

    She may even be the one who inspired you to start reading books! It amazed you how she could finish reading them so quickly. Your birthday gift for Yaya? Definitely those P50 pocket books (with the slightly sexual covers, but of course you were too young to understand what was really going on).

    She kept your secrets.

    You were probably more open with her than you were with your own mom! She knew all about your first crush from kindergarten and teased you at random times, but your secret was always safe with her. Sometimes she even spared you from getting in trouble with your parents by taking the blame for some of your mistakes!


    You treated her as family.

    To you, she wasn't just a Yaya. You treated her as family. You wouldn't be who you are today if it weren't for Yaya guiding you all throughout your younger years. Your love and appreciation for her cannot be reduced to words—you wish you could give back all the love and care she showed you when you were young.
