Behind her glamorous life in front of the flashes and clicks of the camera is a simple and very ‘probinsyana’ Sylvia Sanchez. To show netizens her true self, she launched a Youtube channel on the 31st of May. Featuring her hometown, Nasipit, Agusan del Norte, she premiered her very first vlog entitled, “Tungog?”
Unlike her usual scripted tapings and well-studied characters, viewers watch the candid Sylvia Sanchez. She introduced us to the Nasipit where she grew up and experienced all her “kalokahan” with her friends. Through this new video series, we meet a new side to the “Byang” we know and love.
“Jo” with her family and friends
At the beginning of the vlog, Sylvia made us drool with all the delicacies that one surely misses when they’re kilometers away from home. One of the highlights is the lechon her family prepared for their “mala-fiesta” mealtime. Also featured in the vlog is the freshly extracted tuba, or coconut wine. Together with her friends, she enjoyed drinking the sweet taste of this Filipino alcoholic drink.
Ms. Sylvia then brought us to Nasipit Central Elementary School where she reminisced her early years studying there. Her friends know her as “Jojo” from her first name “Jossette”. The group exchanged stories full of laughs, displaying just how colorful the life she and her friends went through in the olden days was.
The “Byang” known by people
After the upload, fans and supporters showered praises towards Sylvia, lovingly referred to as “Byang”. Already anticipating the next episodes, viewers are continuously sharing the first vlog hoping that others will appreciate how truly beautiful she is. This kind of care only manifests that no scripts and layers of make-up can beat a genuine person.
