On Instagram last Thursday, October 8, the actress-singer posted a photo of herself surfboarding along the waves.

“Kung kailan ka pa tumanda, tsaka ka pa naglaro.” she began her caption on the post, saying it was a comment for herself to forestall bashers.

Glaiza said it is never too late to learn new things that is why, after Baler’s local government unit gave an approval for people to surf, she seized the moment of grabbing a surfboard and going straight to the island’s beautiful waters.

“Dahil dito, hindi lang kami nakakapag-eherhisyo kundi nababawasan din kahit paano ang anxiety at depresyon dulot ng pandemya,” she said. “Pero una ko talagang natutunan dito ay ang respeto. Respeto sa dagat at sa mga nasa dagat.”

She, then, began thanking the Baler locals for all the tips they have given her throughout her stay.

“Kaya sa lahat po ng nga nakakasabay ko na locals, salamat sa mga tips niyo, di ko man alam mga pangalan ng iba sa inyo; at syempre sa mga naging regular ko nang kasama, salamat sa inspirasyon. Para sa mas marami pang kape at pan de sal,” she went on.

She concluded her post by saying people have told her that her skin color has changed, but she can shrug off that and, instead, put her focus on the happiness brought upon by the waves.

“Sabi ng iba, nag iba na daw kulay ko, pero madaling solusyunan yun. Yung kasiyahan na naibibigay ng bawat alon, walang katumbas,” she concluded.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

“Kung kailan ka pa tumanda, tsaka ka pa naglaro.” Wala namang nag sabi sakin, yung insecure ko lang na self. So inunahan ko nang i judge sarili ko bago pa ako i judge ng iba, lol. Hindi parin naman huli ang lahat para matuto ka ng mga bagong bagay. Kaya ayun na nga, na enjoy ko na lalo maglaro sa tubig simula nang i allow ulit ng LGU ng Baler ang surfing ( Salamat po gaiz, labyu ❤️ ) dahil dito, hindi lang kami nakakapag eherhisyo kundi nababawasan din kahit paano ang anxiety at depresyon dulot ng pandemya. Pero una ko talagang natutunan dito ay ang respeto. Respeto sa dagat at sa mga nasa dagat. Kaya sa lahat po ng nga nakakasabay ko na locals, salamat sa mga tips niyo, di ko man alam mga pangalan ng iba sa inyo; at syempre sa mga naging regular ko nang kasama, salamat sa inspirasyon. Para sa mas marami pang kape at pan de sal 🤘🏼 Sabi ng iba, nag iba na daw kulay ko, pero madaling solusyunan yun. Yung kasiyahan na naibibigay ng bawat alon, walang katumbas.
