Mari Jasmine is a breath of fresh air. I was visiting Manila a few months ago where I ran into her and we started talking instantly- from our casting experiences in different countries, finding apartments in new cities, and what our personal visions are for our blogs.
Getting to know Mari better, I realized this girl is the epitome of global. Born in Tokyo, raised in Australia; this half-Japanese, half-English model worked in Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, India, France and now, the Philippines. Currently, she is in Manila working as a TV host and Food Blogger, with health and wellness being one of her true passions.

When a girl grows in her career, she either takes her success to her head, or to her heart. Manuela Basilio does the latter. As a fashion model, she holds a towering presence.

To the public, she is a famous model, TV presenter, actress and now, art consultant. To me, she is my big sister. She’s the person who tells us siblings what books to read, places to go, friends of hers we should meet, and most importantly…. the rules to break.
I wanted to interview Teresa because I often felt like some of the articles I would read about her don’t quite capture “her.” As her youngest sis, I have always had a different point of view when it came to her allure. That’s what I wanted to write here: a glimpse of our relationship, the usual way we speak to each other, and a bit of digging into her other sides that I witnessed growing up.
Excited for you all to meet my family… starting with Teresa.
