Iya Villania does not feel awkward at all as sharing her work-from-home scene where people could see her wearing so casual reporting for 24 Oras. The Chika Minute reporter is, in fact, glad that many praised her realness.
During an online media conference of Eat Well, Live Well, Stay Well which she hosts on January 3, Iya was honest about her feeling, saying, “I love that people enjoy the realness that I’m missing a slipper, that I’m in pajamas but my top can be for work.
“I love that people really enjoy the realness because it’s how it is here. And yeah, if it’s any kind of joy that I can bring into people’s lives, I am glad to do it even if it means having to look like that! ”
Previously on Iya’s Instagram handle, the actress, presenter, and host expressed her thoughts of the kids while also posting along photos of her behind the scenes where she was seen breastfeeding her baby in a clip. She captioned the post: “Verified
As I end my WFH stint I just want to thank @gmanews @gmanetwork for giving me the opportunity to be able to work safely from home over the past (almost) 2yrs! It’s been such a blessing to be able to do so in the comfort (and chaos) of my own home 😆 I have to admit, I will terribly miss my family 😭 the cries, screams, breastfeeding, cuddles, kisses during commercial breaks, and a husband poking my 🍑 while I try to maintain composure on air – won’t be getting that in the studio 😭 but the hairstyling, dressing up from top to toe (with no missing slipper) and the clear line between work and family is something to welcome back in 2022 😆 it was an awesome run and seriously, who would’ve thought this was even possible?!? Let’s pray cases don’t get out of control again so we can get some sense of normalcy back 😊 2022, let’s go!!! 👊🏼 #WFH #LifeWithTheArellanos
So in the online media conference, Iya said, “I have to say, I have really been so blessed.
It’s a set-up that I truly enjoyed and if, at any point, I need to work from home again, I would gladly take it because I get the best of both worlds!
“I get to be with my family while I get to work and make a living.”
Iya is all set to host Eat Well, Live Well, Stay Well which will air this January 7. She will appear along co-host Jose Sarasola for the third season of the show. Speaking of it, the female host shared, “I love to be in the kitchen because I feel that every moment in the kitchen is a moment for me to gain courage and confidence in the kitchen, which has been something I’ve been wanting to do for the longest time.”
“So, before, when I was doing a cooking show, the challenge was for me to learn, the challenge for me was to be taught certain things in the kitchen.
“Now, because of the number of seasons, the number of episodes, and the number of hours that I’ve spent in the kitchen with people that know how to cook, I’d like to think that it’s really given me the confidence.”
Iya added, “I didn’t even have to look for the recipe. Now, I can be in the kitchen and be like, ‘I’ll put this, I’ll put this, let’s try this.’
“Meron na akong lakas ng loob para magsubok sa kusina. And I think that’s really a major part of being a chef, or even if it’s just a home chef. You didn’t have to be a major chef like Jose, just to be a home chef. I think it’s really just the confidence.”
That’s definitely the thing that I gained! Even with the minutes that I spent in the cooking portion of Mars Pa More, even there I learn something.”
Iya gave ardent words referring to the show: “Every day, I’m always learning something new with how to use certain products, the different ways I can use it, the different ways I can cut, the different ways I can cook a certain [dish].
“I can cook fish, even things that I don’t cook at home, I learn through Eat Well, Stay Well, Live Well. Like, I don’t cook shrimp, but because of the show, I’m forced to and so I learned how to, or even halaan, tahong, ang saya.
“I learned so many things. And if I’m learning, what more iyong mga manunuod ng show.”
