Message from Buna:
Annyeong chingu! I’m Kate aka Buna and I belong to the first generation of KPop fans. Bago pa dumating ang Twice at BTS, nanghahabol na ako ng oppa sa Megahall tuwing KCon or sa airport kapag malakas ang loob.
When I’m not fangirling, I work in a tech start-up as a resident Recruiter and HR Queen. After work, I usually think of things on how I can earn more money. You know, kilay is life but pera is lifer.
Aside from my love for KPop, I also love to hoard: books, makeup, resibo, kalat, etc. Kidding aside, I love to write and listen to music. Mahilig din akong mag-ukay for branded bags.
‘Yon lang. Bye!
GTKY with Buna
- WHAT’S SOMETHING THAT NO ONE WOULD GUESS ABOUT YOU?
That I am a softie? Haha! For some reason, people always perceive me as someone intimidating, that my personality is too strong most of the time. But really, I just have this resting bitch face and I am really full of emotions inside. Yuck!
- WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN?
Ha! This one is a trick question! Hmmm, well I believe in justice. I always say, “Piso sa piso.”, which means always give what is due. Too much kindness kills!
- IF YOU COULD BE DOING ANYTHING, ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW, WHAT AND WHERE WOULD IT BE?
I will probably quit my job and manage our business full time. I’d stop waking up at 4am. Instead, I’ll wake up whenever I want and start making smoothies every morning. Run a little. Shower. Manage my clients. Travel. Something like that.
- WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU HAD DONE DIFFERENTLY IN YOUR LIFE?
I wish I hadn’t listened to what my first boss said about who I was, what I can and cannot do. I wish I hadn’t tied myself up too much with numbers because I can never be defined by just the numbers.
- WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO IMPROVE YOURSELF?
Hard one, huh. I focus on self-discovery above everything else. I am focused on exploring my passion and the things that make me happy. I learn them – sometimes by watching Youtube videos. Believing in yourself is the first step to success – and I plan to bask on this until I’m satisfied.
- WHAT’S ONE THING YOU’VE HAD TO OVERCOME IN YOUR LIFE?
You. Charot! Yung maka-move on ako sa’yo, yan ang biggest achievement ko. Kidding aside, siguro yung lack of self-confidence. Wala pala akong mararating kung feeling ko magfa-fail ako agad.
- WHAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO YOU?
Pera. Charot! Compromise. ‘Yan.
- WHAT DID YOU LEARN ABOUT YOURSELF FROM YOUR PREVIOUS RELATIONSHIPS?
Ang tindi ko pala kumapit. I will exhaust myself at kapag naglet-go ako, yun na. Wala ng bawian.
- HOW DO YOU HANDLE BEING IN A BAD MOOD?
Music and silence. I like to reflect when I am in a bad mood. Isa-savor ko yung mood ko and cure it with music and silence. Pero if gusto niyo ako i-distract from my bad mood, give me food.
- WHAT DO YOU WISH SOMEONE WOULD ASK YOU?
I don’t know. Anything! But siguro, I’ll put it this way. Perception is vital in forming relationships or partnerships. So ask first! Actually, ask anything! Para you’ll have a better understanding of the other person bago mo husgahan, bes.
